Vehicle Description
1931 Ford Model A C-Cab
1931 Ford Model A United Parcel Delivery truck. VERY RARE!!!! A part of United States Business History!!! Own this very unique vehicle, add it to your collection!!! An Original Sedan Delivery from the earliest days of Automotive Commercial Marketing!!!The UPS of today started with vehicles like this and they were well cared for then as now. Starting in Seattle in 1907 as a messenger service, and changed to retail motorized delivery in 1919. UPS has preserved its reputation by its cardinal rule; “a wash every day” and “repair every scratch the day it happens.” Rules to live by for the classic car collector too!
Found abandoned but still basically intact, the owner started a life-saving project to resurrect this unique piece of history on wheels, sparing no effort or expense. Very recently completed restoration (2008), with few miles driven since and properly stored. Craftsman used white oak wood to duplicate the original. All brackets and hardware were reconditioned. Wooden body and upper rear doors were skinned with new aluminum to resemble original configuration, and new oval windows were installed in the rear doors, and original drip rail trim moldings were used. The body was primed and painted the original paint scheme of brown and black and pinstriped as per the original design. New upholstery covers the seating surfaces.
Original Ford 4 cylinder 40 horsepower completely rebuilt, re-bored, decked, milled, new bearings, crank and camshaft, New pistons, rings, timing gears, valves and seats, gaskets and seals, rebuilt starter, generator, water pump, distributor, reconditioned original radiator, new hoses, spark plugs and wires. Transmission updates include new clutch disc, pressure plate and throw out bearing, completely rebuilt with new bearings and seals.
Suspension and steering systems received new kingpins, bushings, tie rod ends, springs, wheel bearings, and grease seals. Rebuilt steering gear with new bearings, seals, and adjusted re-arch front spring. Rear differential rebuilt along with replaced shackles, bushings, and re-arch springs.
Shocks and brakes have been attended to and new duplicate of original wiring installed to original specs. Even the Headlamp buckets, Horn, wiper motor, and cowl lamps are original and have been restored to “as new” condition.
Professionally re-chromed front and rear bumpers, clamps, windshield frame, emergency brake lever, spark and gas control levers, and instrument glusten housing. New Ford script glass installed in windshield.
