“Not showing up until August, resume writing service 1928, was Ford’s Closed Cab Pickup, priced at $445, the same as the open cab model. Despite its new front end, the Closed Cab Pickup not only used the pickup bed from Model-T days, but its entire cab was a direct carryover, including the visor with its four prominent ribs. Designated the Model 82-A, the truck used all of the passenger car’s components, differing mainly in the use of painted radiator and headlight shells. Unless specially ordered at extra cost, all commercial Fords were finished in dark green with black fenders, running boards, and shells. All-black was a no-cost special order option, and any of the passenger car colours were available at extra cost.” Source, “90 Years of Ford” George Visit Your URL H. Dammann.
