Re: Maremount helper springs

Not sure what happened to the picture of the helper spring in my first post, but here it is again.

Re: Maremount helper springs

Here is a picture of the Maremount spring that was on my late 1930 AA-157 when I bought it. The truck was, at one time, used in the Denver area by a furniture company. I don't have any good pictures of Maremount springs so I don't know if this spring is a 10x, 20x, or 30x. https://s1.postimg.org/1ko...

Re: dsipatch pocket location

This was in the boxes I received when I bought an AA 157 Ford truck that was used as a moving van in Denver, Colorado. Pocket had 3 metal backing strips behind the door panel and the assembly was held together with rivets. A couple rivet heads can be seen in the picture. I basically drilled them out...

Cross Sill Info Needed for 185A Platform

Finally might be able to start building a platform for my late 1930 AA157. I believe the correct platform is the 185A as the truck has a tapered frame. I am using Neil Wilson's excellent article on this platform and it has most of the dimensions that I need, however I can't find the height of the 7 ...

Re: 185-A platform for lt30-E31 AA-157

Hi Shorthaul,

I am in Lakewood Colorado just west of Denver. Would be interested in your truck bed.
My frame is the tapered one. Is your bed for that one?

Re: 185-A platform for lt30-E31 AA-157

Hi ModelAkid , I like your idea. I have a heated place to store the wood for a couple months. I checked into kiln dried hardwood at Austin Hardwoods in Denver. After the sticker shock on prices I decided to take another path on the wood. They have kiln dried white pine also, but it is still pricey. ...

Re: 185-A platform for lt30-E31 AA-157

Thanks Neil for posting the dimensions and the contact info.

I am in the process of gathering parts to build this platform. Will wait, of course, to purchase the wood since
most wood bought from the lumberyards will warp overnight these days.

185-A platform for lt30-E31 AA-157

Since I can't seem to find one for sale in the known universe for my tapered frame AA, I guess I will attempt to build one. Will use Neil Wilsons very detailed article on this platform in the 2008 FMAATC newsletter as a guide. I have a couple of questions though. 1. Can't find (or missed) the top to...

Re: front 2 bar bumpers for 1930 aa

In addition to what Bob C, Spectria, and Neil have posted, here is what a double bar AA front bumper looks like in real life. From my "kind of unmolested" late 1930 AA 157.

Re: 131" AA frame lenght

Sorry all for the mis-post earlier today.
I was late for an appointment and thought the original post was asking about an AA157.
Re-read his post just now and realized it was about a 131.

Re: 131" AA frame lenght

Here is a picture of my AA157 that I purchased several years ago. I have not restored anything yet. Hope to get to it this year. I believe a previous owner may have cut the frame at the rear since there are steel reinforcements welded there and the frame ends are quite rough. The distance from the b...
