Default 1930 Model A Roadster Pickup Banger Build

What started out as a fun little pick up to run at the Dirt Drags and the Hot Rod Hill Climb turned out to be a little bit more work than originally thought. The hope was to de-fender it and put in a different motor and clean up the body. A older restoration from the early 70's and just a little refresh turned out to be just a little bit more.

From what I was told there were only 2400 roadster pickups built in 1930. After digging into it. It was decided it would need a little more than a refresh.


The original parts were removed in case it would ever be put back original.

A donor motor with a 32 police head , 39 trans with a Ansen adapter plate,a dropped front axle, a donor rear end and the original mechanical brakes make up the drive train. It would also require the worn look.

The frame was boxed and lightning holes were added and then shot SPI Black Epoxy.

The donor bed came from Colorado. It was rust free, but not dent free.

After looking at the original bed it was decided to make the bead to be the same on the back as the front.


The back is longer than the front. A little over 8" was cut out of the bed sides. A repop tailgate and front panel were bought for it.

The lower rear body panel had been repaired with fiberglass.
A new one would be made.

It was decided to chop the windshield 3". didn't want to destroy the original windshield post so some new ones were made from scratch.
