Re: Spare Tire Carrier

How does the tire carrier mount to a '28 AA with platform bed? I have two carriers. One has 9" heavy straps to complete the mount/hinge. The other one has only the loop curled at the forward end of the carriers main straps. Is the same carrier used for wire wheels as the disc type single wheel?Than...

Re: Express Bed hold down strap bolts

I have 2 originals that are are worn, but we are using them currently for the mock up of the bed. Was this picture you sent me correct? Please...

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

I just realized this is the original cab that was on the 229A service car that was (also) in La Verne CA. Guess the guy restoring it found a better cab to use. FYI - Yes, originally there was a complete Service Car with a 229-A service body. The project was mostly restored using a different cab bef...

Looks like the old writing on the door is "Ford - Mercury - Lincoln Zephyr". Did a dealer use this truck, after 1939? (when Mercury was introduced).
I don't have any information regarding the dealer. The cab was for a late 1931 Service Car.

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

The recessed left door was standard for the 199-A Ice truck and 229-A Service car. It was special equipment when tires larger than 6:00x20 were ordered for dump, coal, and garbage bodies. This door was used in conjunction with the left front fender AA wheel carrier.

Re: The Right Frame for a Mail Truck

(I am hoping that Neil can help with this question) I have a 1930 Ford AA truck frame that is in excellent shape. Based upon Neil's work, it is a AA-5005-B-d1. It measures 171-5/16 long. The truck had an 82-A cab with a 1930 style fuel cap. The fuel tank and the fire wall are in good shape. The rad...

There were 44 production AA body types. 12 closed-bodies and 32 open-cargo-bodies (all were made by va...

Re: Chronology of the 3 and 4 speed and under drive.

I inserted my comments in Dave's comments: The 28's and early 29's came with the three speed transmission the same as the cars. The dual high transmission was an option for the trucks with the high speed worm drive rear ends. NOTE - A Ford option for any AA with a 3-speed. If used behind a low speed...

no threads. just a sharp square about 1/2 inch square, must have been molded in a bakelite type of material. i could cut and thread and put on a knob. i was not sure how common these levers were.
FYI - The attached shows the lever and ball.

Re: '29 Hi/Low trans linkage.

First off, thanks for posting. What I have looks a little different. Concentric rings not parallel lines. The distance between the two eyes is approx. 15".shift5.jpgshift4.jpgshift1.jpg So, you have a miss-match of parts - design 3 dual high and design 1 pedal. Ford didn't make a rod for this setup...
