New guy on your block

Post by Edgy » April 19th, 2011, 1:50 pm

Hello to everyone! I plan to finish a restoration of a truck my "late" father started many years ago. My dad bought this truck in 1975 for $50.00. The pictures he took of it says it's a 1929 AA. Everything but the body has already been restored. I've found most of the body parts scattered thoughout the buildings. My question is this: is it possible the date on the firewall be stamped in the year 28? Does it really matter? Thank you for any information! I can't wait to get started.

That's awesome that you're finishing a project that your father started. I don't see there being a reason that the firewall couldn't be stamped '28. We would all love to see some pictures.

Edgy,
I have been through your section of MT a few times and think it is a beautiful section of the country. So I am looking forward to seeing some pictures of your truck in your local area.
