Ford Model A 1928 Description

1928 Ford Model A Pick Up Early Model AR Series

You are viewing a super nice professionally built Street Rod. The truck is in excellent condition with only 7,750 miles driven since completed. Looks like the truck was built just a few years ago. Super clean and well cared for. 2nd owner, the truck was built by Tim Stromberger of Tim’s Hot Rods in Spokane, WA for Don Wilbur. Don Wilbur is a legend in the NW when it comes to racing of all types and the Street Rod world. Don is a member of the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame and ran the Spokane Auto/Boat Speed show which ran for 49 years. Tim is a long time builder of notable Street Rods throughout the years including two of the most expensive Street Rods sold at auction in history back in 2004 and 2005 with the 1938 Lincoln Zephyr and the 1936 Chrysler Airflow that sold for 400 and 500K respectively at Barrett Jackson. The quality of workmanship is present and shows. The truck has won many top awards including Best of Show. Close to 100K when into the build. The truck has been appraised at over 50K with the cost to buy much less. Super nice build and ready for a new owner.
