This 1930 Ford Model A Pickup is known as Pineapple Pete. It has a unique story that has the story of family and daily driving at its heart. So dig into the info on this sweet treat named Pete.
The two-tone yellow and brown is a distinct color combo that also doesn't feel out of place for the 1930s. It helps tell the story of the consignor's grandfather who says he bought this new to haul pineapples for Dole in Hawaii. And today, the playful logo on the doors also reminds us you can put your own on this one and make your business look like it has been around for a century. As you look over the whole truck, you're going to discover pieces that could be updated like the paint or the upholstery if you're looking for a show-ready presentation. But what we like from day one is the level of vintage charm mixed with the carefree driving ability. So the overall appeal is all about having a detailed style with a newer vinyl roof, a bright stone screen for the radiator, and a full-size spare mounted in the fender. And of course, the full wooden bed is a great feature. We're told the original steel bed was eaten away from the juices of hauling pineapples during the day and even hauling pineapple moonshine at night! So this replacement adds even more attention because it's 125-year-old African Mahogany.
The interior feels both basic and authentic. The includes a plush cloth bench seat, four-spoke steering wheel, tall shifter, and fold-out windshield that works with the roll-down side windows to let a nice breeze through the cab. The only real addition you're going to notice is a water temp readout on the steering column, and that's the kind of thing you want in a true driver's classic.
Under the hood is the correct-style 201 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine. It has a clean look where you can see many of the upgrades that help make this such a solid driver. The true cruiser style includes better driver-friendly components, like an alternator, electronic fuel pump, 12-volt system, an Ansen intake, and finned components for better cooling. It runs with the robust Ford feeling, and the three-speed manual transmission has the kind of true mechanical feel to give you proper control over the vintage motor.
The sale comes complete with the service manuals, car covers, and Pete's tale. So if you're looking for a true classic with a truly unique story, you need this Model A pickup. Call today!!!
