Roadster Pickup
Permalink  
 


It's Christmas and I just acquired this 1931 Ford Model A roadster Pickup.  It is a driver, but I have lots of plans even though it will remain a four banger.  It is currently in Edmonton and I haven't figured out how it is going to get here.  I have several options, hire an enclosed transport, load it at some location and meet it in Ontario where I will have to haul it home from some place between Mississauga and Pickering.  Otherwise, I can put it in storage until the spring, drive out with my trailer and haul it home.  I am heading out to Edmonton on Tuesday, will look around at various hauler and storage facilities and decide then.

Engine was just rebuilt with insert bearings and high compression head. I have a down draft intake and headers and electronic ignition. When it gets home, I will order a Mitchel fully synchroed tranny and over drive unit. Posies super slider springs with a 2" drop and I have a set of 16" wheels. I will install a set of Coker 'Firestone' bias ply tires. Also I will replace the seat with a school bus seat to give me more leg room. After that, drive it.

Leave it there until the summer. When you come out for Duece Days, pick it up on your way home.

What is the temperature in Edmonton now?

Wear your woolies...

KNWZ4890.JPGIMG_1367.JPGIMG_1403.JPGWarren, I just had a '30 Model A coupe transported in from Lethbridge, Alberta. I used TFX, they delivered it door to door no hassles. Having said that, their price has jumped 50% since 2018 when I had them transport a '65 GTO from Tappen B.C. to Ontario. Unless I was going that way to visit family or friends, I wouldn't do it any other way. With the cost of fuel, meals, and lodging, you would spend the cost of TFX anyway. Never mind the risk factor of towing, the driving time, and the possibilities of breakdowns. Haven't even talked about the cost of storage (unless you know someone with storage facilities) till the summertime. To me it is a no brainer.

One of the kids on the street when I was a kid was named Bob and he now owns a trucking company in Edmonton or Calgary or somewhere out there so I sent him a note asking if he could help you out Warren but I'm still waiting for a reply.
