Description

The Dumpin' A is a Hot Wheels Original Model designed by Larry Wood. It is designed to look like a 1927 Ford Model A that's converted into a dump truck. The Ford Model A was the second huge success for the Ford Motor Company, after its predecessor, the Model T. First produced on October 20, 1927, but not sold until December 2, it replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years. By 4 February 1929, one million Model As had been sold, and by 24 July, two million. The engine was a water-cooled L-head inline 4-cylinder with a displacement of 201 cu in (3.3 l). This engine provided 40 hp (30 kW). Top speed was around 65 mph (105 km/h). The transmission was a conventional 3-speed sliding gear manual unsynchronised unit with a single speed reverse. The Model A had 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes. The 1930 and 1931 models were available with stainless steel radiator cowling and headlamp housings.

This diecast model has a dump bed placed on the rear and the grille is placed forward, which means that there is some distance between the engine and the grille, resulting in extra cooling when hauling heavy loads.
