Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

1930 Ford Model AA 1.5 Ton Truck

Purchased in the late 70's, early 80's, by the father of the current owner, the truck was taken apart and restored in the late 80's. It has only been driven up and down the road a bit and moved around on the property in that time but it has been started regularly and with a jump she starts right up.

It is unknown if the engine is original. It is dated as a 1929 engine and the truck is very probably a late 30's build based on certain ID checks. It was very typical for the engines to be built well before they were installed into the chassis of their vehicles, so it is very difficult to know if any Ford of this era is "numbers matching" without pulling the body and looking at the frame rail for the ID, which oft times is illegible due to time.

One can see the lack of use in the near perfection of all the surfaces. This truck is in absolutely pristine, show quality condition.

The flat head four was rebuilt and is the same engine that the cars had, the trucks made up for the low (40 hp) HP/Torque via gearing, with a four speed manual (as opposed to the three in cars) and a full floating, 1.5 ton rear axle. The manual transmission has 4 forward gears and a lock out reverse. Cable/rod activated 4 wheel drum brakes slow the behemoth down from a top speed of about 35-40 MPH.

Tires are 6.00-20 Denman. The odometer shows 24,332 miles and that is believed to be accurate, the engine has less than 100 miles on it since being completely rebuilt.

The platform bed is done in light oak and may be of original design, the owner is unsure.

The color combination of the oak, the red 2 piece wheels and the black body really make the truck stand out, aside from it's rather massive size, 131.5" wheelbase.

The seat has been reupholstered in black vinyl and is rather comfy for a simple flat bench.

The truck runs and drives great (as great as a 1.5 ton 1930 truck can drive). Lights work, horn works, wiper works.

The truck is turn key and ready to enjoy, driving, using as advertising, taking to shows, etc.

Price is $25,000
