1929

Sunday evening, in our travels, Motor Man and I happened upon a man who was on his way to deliver this old truck to its new owners.

It had been bought at an auction the day before in a town about an hour from us.

It’s a 1929 Ford Model A pick-up truck.  This is the back license plate.

And this is the front. I tend to think this plate might be the original.

It even has a spare tire!

This old truck caught my eye right away.  It was even more interesting to me when I discovered that it was a 1929 model: that’s the year my parents were married. (I, of course, came along MANY years later.) 

We were told the new owner paid $8,000 for this sweet little ride. I can’t imagine how much it will cost to restore, but I’m betting it will be a beauty when it’s done.

If only she could talk…

  1. I love seeing old cars and wondering what “their” history might be. We see tons of them every year at Carlisle’s car shows…..this one has a lot of restoration work ahead of it but it sure will SHINE when it does!

  2. What a treat!! And extra special that it was that particular model year.
    Someone has a real prize!

  3. Oh it is a neat one!! That was the year my mom was born so I think that date is pretty special, too. I bet she is going to be a beauty when she is all restored!

  4. What a treasure!! THanks for sharing!

  5. You do find the most interesting things. What a beauty!

  6. Note no air bags or seat belts. Good thing they didn’t get up too much speed on those country roads back in the day. Fun post, Dianna!

  7. A very cool pick-up! Love to see it after its restoration!

  8. oh, that is fabulous! good luck, old truck!

  9. What a wonderful find – and to think it still has the 1929 license. What are the odds of that? This looks like a great opportunity for a before and after blog, if you know the new owner.

  10. I can’t imagine the stories it could tell!
    & it could be a beauty one day… again …. 🙂

  11. How cool is that? I can only imagine what it will look like when it’s restored to its former beauty.

    It was a grand vehicle in it’s day and I bet will be again! I bet JR enjoyed seeing it.

  13. Too bad you can’t show the after photos…bet it will be stunning when it’s restored! ~ Sheila

  14. That’s a great find!
