That Model A truck would be a kick to have. Beautiful restoration. Like you Doug, I think the price is high too. It's also on the wrong coast for me.

There's something about stock Ford Model As with black fenders, black wire wheels, and black grilles with a dark body color (green, blue, red, etc) that makes me drool. :P

I also can't take my eyes off a Model A in all black!

It has hydraulic brakes.  I don't thing Ford had hydraulic brakes in 1935.

Correct. It also came with a 6 volt electrical system, not 12 volt. Upgraded for safety & ease of repairs.
