It is a 28 Chevy with a York Body

I finally got the rest of the story from the owner (by way of my employee) it turned out to be a 28 chevy with the york body on it. I guess it is in mint condition with a lot of the orignal accessories, oil cloth curtains etc. The truck was in a wyoming barn under a tarp, the original owner forgot h...

30 or 31 woody?

One of my employees sent me this picture of his sisters Model A, it appears to be a 30 but the wood spoke wheels through me off. The reason I think it is a 30 or 31 is because of the cowl band.

Pretty nice looking truck though, what do you all think?

Re: Service Recorder - Commercial Accessory

Howdy All, I've been searchin' high and low for a Service Recorder, the accessory for accounting for the operating time for the Commercial vehicles. It scribes a thin line on the chart while the truck is inactive and a wide line while the truck is active. The movement of the truck makes a pendulum ...

Well thank you, thank you!!! I'll take your advice. Fortunately it has been beautifully restored with all original parts. No ribbons. I have pictures to attach for anyone interested. And I would certainly accept less for it. But not a soul has asked about. So, I'll contact MAFCA. Again thank you so...

Re: What am I doing wrong?

Hi. Could anyone advise me as to what I may be doing wrong in regards to selling a restored Model AA dump truck? I haven't even had one inquiry. Is my price to high? Forgive me as I know nothing about these beautiful vehicles. I inherited this beauty and I have no choice but to let her go. Thanks f...

Posting your For Sale or Wanted notices

If you are posting 4 sale or "Wanted" messages, be sure to include where you are located (or item for sale is located) the price and a way to contact you.

If you are refering to an Ebay item, include the Ebay item number so others can quickly find your stuff.

:shock:

Re: New Restoration Project

Good afternoon everyone. Pleased to meet you. I am new to AA restoration - but have a '31 A pickup (almost complete!). I've learned a lot and have a LOT left to learn. I recently purchased a '31 AA dump out of the proverbial farmers field. I need six wheels (5 slot) - are these what you refer to as...

I have an extra BB (1932) 4 sped transmission. By the outward appearance, it looks like the 30-31s. Could you send a photo of what you are looking for? Alan..... Hello Alan, I did finally obtain one from another member on the board. I'm looking for a mid 30's stake bed though! If you ever come acro...

Re: Front Tire Clearance

When I bought my 1929 AA, it had two new 6.50x20 tires on the back but the front tires were bad. I ordered two new 6.50x20 Firestones from Coker and have now installed them on the front. The only problem is that I have only about a half inch or less clearance between the tires and the outside fende...

relining emergency brake bands

I'm about to reline my parking brake bands this weekend, I have the lining material, rivets and the tool to drill and set the rivets.

Was wondering if any body had some tips on doing a good job, such as how deep do you drill into the lining, rivet setting tricks and so on.

Thanks !

Re: How Much 600W Oil Do I need to....

Fill up the 30/31 style rear axle, the 4 speed AA transmission, and a 29 Warford?? I drained nearly a gallon of thick oil from the rear axle, but not sure how full it was. The seals were bad and brakes were soaked. I'm estimating 2 gallons should be enough for all three units. Anyone know the capac...
