1929 Ford Model A United States Postal Service Mail Truck, This Model A Postal Truck is a very unique vehicle, with only about 1,000 of them made between 1929 to 1932.
My dad found this truck in Massachusetts about 8 years ago. It had collapsed in on itself, laying on a flat-bed trailer, looking like nothing more than a pile of rusted parts and rotting wood. I brought it back to my home in Maine and over a few long, cold winters he brought it back to life! He enjoyed every aspect of this challenging project; the endless research, the intricacies of every little detail necessary to bring it to its original state 1929. He recreated a new wood body, cutting, fitting and dovetailing down to every last unique characteristic. Everything is done in-house including engine work, upholstery and woodwork. This gem is beautifully restored and professionally custom built by my dad, Philip Nappi. He naturally chose to keep the interior natural wood to show off it's beauty. The exterior is the Drab Olive, which was the USPS color at that time. The hood and fenders are black and the tires are brand new. On the passengers side panel is an Uncle Sam recruiting poster from World War II, which appears on many of the same trucks. It has an electric and crank start, with less than 50 miles on it! The original vacuum windshield wipers are on the truck, but not hooked up. Unfortunately, over the years, time has brought on several dings while being in storage, so there are a few that are present. Also, I would recommend repainting the black due to his amateur paint job back in the day! This postal truck is a rare find and a treasure to any Model A fan.
