1929 Ford Model A Huckster 1929 Ford Model A Huckster Additional Info:

The term huckster describes a person who sells something or serves biased interests, using pushy or showy tactics. Historically, the term, huckster was applied to any type of vendor or reseller, but over time it has assumed distinctive pejorative connotations.The original meaning of huckster is a person who sells small articles, either door-to-door or from a stall or small store, like a peddler or hawker. The term probably derives from the Middle English hucc meaning to haggle.[1] The word was in use circa 1200 (as "huccsteress"). During the medieval period, the word assumed the feminine word ending "ster" as in huckster reflecting the fact that most hucksters were women.[2] The word assumed various spellings at different times: hukkerye, hukrie, hockerye, huckerstrye or hoxterye. The word was still in use in England in the 1840s, when it appeared as a black market occupation. It is related to the Middle Dutch hokester, hoekster and the Middle Low German höker, but appears earlier than any of these.[3] In the United States, there developed a connotation of trickery – the huckster might trick others into buying cheap imitation products as if they were the real thing.In Scotland, the term huckster referred to a person, usually a woman, who bought goods, watered them down, and resold them in tiny quantity to others who were too poor to buy quality products available at market value[citation needed]. These items tended to be in the poorer quality range since economy was paramount. Scots burghs often felt the need to control hucksters because they operated without a stall, on the economic fringes. In particular, they were subject of accusations of forestalling, in this case the practice of buying goods wholesale, "before the stall" and therefore before tax was paid.Our Huckster started its life no different than those described above . We have no historical data on our Huckster. However, the story of what it could be is just as cool as it’s past use of peddling goods.Since there’s no engine in the car anymore, we would like to propose one of two futures for the Huckster. One, is where you buy the car, then hire us to install an older or more modern engine, and doll it up. Option number 2, is where we turn it into an electric car and start selling them to the commuters all over Washington. The batteries will be installed in the truck bed and in the engine compartment will be the trunk. We’re still running numbers and trying to find the best use, and the best Batterys, however anyone living in Ballard for example, would be able drive to work and back on one charge. Plug it in and your ready for the next days commute.In order to have this piece of history, we will need to collect $9,500Our Huckster has great bones. The only issue we see is the drivers side running board has done rust that has gone thru.We would love to be picked as the restoration shop to do any and all work on this truck. If not the first person who comes up with $9,500 will get the truck.
