Classic Car Overview

1933 Ford Model BB platform

There's a lot more story here than description, because the truck is almost as simple as it gets.

Back in 1760, the land where this trucks sits was homesteaded. The same family has owned it since then and it had always been a dairy farm until the last 40 years or so. This 1932 Ford Model BB platform/stake body was purchased brand new as one of the first powered pieces of machinery for the farm. They were still using a horse drawn seeder for the hay planting. (That seeder is still in very good condition and available) . This Model BB was used around town and of course all over the 100 plus acres of farm land primarily for collecting the hale bales. It was last registered in 1979 but was used on the property up into the late 80's, early 90's. In the 60's they built the "new shed" and that is where this truck and her sister 1929 Ford Model AA Dump body were kept and have been sitting ever since being parked 35+/- years ago. The owner, who is the great, grandson of the original buyer of this 32 Ford, contacted a local restoration shop inquiring if they could direct him to possible buyers, they directed him to me in order to inspect and possibly assist in their sale.

My friend and I got her running just recently and she fired up rather easily after installation of a new battery, some points cleaning and running new fuel through her veins. The ignition switch wasn't operational, so we were able to jump start her across the solenoid. She runs and drives "great - for a nearly 90 year old truck". The inline 4 cylinder has unknown miles on it as the numbers are literally worn off the odometer, but the great grandson says the truck would have close to what her sister dump body has, somewhere around 40K.

The owner tells me she is a 32, however, I've had several others state it "may not be a 32 but possibly a 33 or 34". Quite honestly, I can't find anything to differentiate a 32 from a 33 or 34 in the Model BB 1 ton trucks. (Update - the engine number, BB5179732, shows her as being built in January of 1933, so she is a 1933)

This truck has the extended frame for the longer platform. It is set up for the stake body and the rear panel is present.

This truck is in great "original patina" condition. There is no rot on the frame and very little rust on the body, however, the bottom of the doors are rotted and the paint is flaking off most of the interior and some of the exterior. There is glass in the driver door and it rolls up and down. The lights work as does the horn.

When started via the aforementioned jumped solenoid process, she idles well and drives and the 4 speed manual trans shifts as she should. The tires are tubed and the outer tires are cracked and will need to be replaced if one is going to drive her on the road.

Whether as a simple farm truck to work around a property or as a display vehicle, she's solid and ready to go. Being so solid, if one were inclined to do a restoration, she's a great foundation.

The family is asking $8500 for her.

Any questions, for many more photos and video, to schedule a time to see her or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for the interest!
