While visiting Johnny Cloud's Museum, we found tucked into a building, this 1930-31 Ford Model A House Car. Johnny told us his father had actually purchased it from his mother's school teacher. Seems the school teacher and spouse built this and used it to live in while they were building a home in Parker Arizona. Boondocking?? Well, they had all the conveniences, let's start on the inside (noting I did NOT climb inside, I leaned in as far as I could safely and did the best I could while trying to balance myself and get the photos.)
|Storage cabinets over the driver and passenger seats. |
Also note, what is believed to be a roof vent.
|This one is hard to figure out because of angles, etc.|
Forward almost white colored cabinets, believed to be sink.
In back left, dark colored, dresser drawers and in
very back, ends of two bunks.
|Left, sink and dresser drawers.|
Back: Two sleeping bunks, over head
lighting, square on roof is vent.
|Right: Driver's seat, steering wheel.|
Left: Refrigeration. (Drawer on top?
Have no idea, probably not part of OEM
Original Equipment Manufacturer)
|Furnished Apartment For Rent - Johnny has a dark|
sense of humor, eh??
The bottle under the sign is the fresh water tank.
Talk about needing to conserve. WOW!!
|In all it's beauty!|
Bottle on right is propane for cooking
and heat, possibly refrigeration.
