The Ford Model A was manufactured between 1928 and 1931 and was the second huge success for Ford after its predecessor, the Model T. The Model A was offered in a wide variety of body styles and was the first Ford to incorporate the standard set of driver controls with a conventional clutch, brake pedal, accelerator and gearshift. The engine was a water cooled in-line four-cylinder arrangement with a capacity of 3.2 litres or 2.2 litres. With a conventional three-speed gearbox, (plus reverse), the top speed was around 65mph. Stopping power was by four-wheel drum brakes operated by rods. The 1930 and 1931 models were offered with exterior door handles, stainless steel radiator cowlings and headlight housings.

This 1930 Model A is fitted with a pickup style back and has recently been used by a film company in an upcoming blockbuster. This truck presents well in green and sports a quail hood ornament to symbolize the sound and the speed as it took off into flight.  These classic American trucks are being sign written making them popular as advertising platforms. BF 9565 offers an inexpensive opportunity to own an important piece of Classic American auto history. Consigned by Dominic Lake
