Money buys good looks. The cowl band is not commercial and the split rings are painted instead of cad plated. I'll bet others can spot other things that are not correct from the factory.

You think for that money it would at least have a fan belt on the engine.

That is the 195-A Express with closed cab. The cargo body is rare. The long running boards, aprons, and rear fenders are very hard to find. It is too bad there are not detailed pictures showing the inside of the cargo body. That is what makes the truck worth $'s.

I see one huge error. I spotted it a mile away.

They are going to deliver it to the wrong address. Barett-Jackson is always doing that to me.

I would also like to see the inside of the cargo body and the tailgate,it should be clear yellow pine ,it should have special fender wells .The inside wood should have carriage bolts with square nuts on the outside ( wood carriage bolts & nuts should be painted body color ). The cab appears to be a 1930 , I beleive it should be a 1931 for the 195A body. Having said all the things that might be wrong with the truck it still remains to be one of the few remaing of a rare cargo body style and who ever bought it could correct the problems by spending more money or enjoy it as is.

All:

Man! I sure don't like seeing our old AA's commanding such high prices. I've always felt like they were a "poor man's" restoration hobby. No offense to anyone intended. But, I must admit, it's a nice looking truck.

For all you error critical people, it is clear these pictures were taken DURING restoration. To have your vehicle properly advertised and books printed for an auction, they need pictures and a description about 6-4 months out.

It would be great to see some detailed closeup pictures of the truck. I bet the express body is worth as much as the rest of the truck.
Does anyone have any info on how may 195-A and or, 195-B Express body's were made?

Check to see if they used the same fenders as the 31 195A , I have two NOS right rear & a set of early take offs .I would concider selling one of the NOS right rears . I will need the set for my 197A . I still need the left running board for my 195A that has dual wheels Bud Valerius

umm firt pic, I noticed right off I can see through the hood louvers! OOPS! The hood sides are I hope swapped, or possibly the same on both sides. Does have what looks to be a great paint job! In the second pic, no fault of his own, but he has the 'A' headight conduits, instead of the cloth loom. ANd I have no Idea why anyone would run a tillotsen carb unless they have no other choice.(Personal pref for the zenith) All that being said, I wish mine looked 1/8th as bad as this one!! Being the frame is sitting on top of a garbage can cart :P

I like the stock painted front bumper too. I lucked out and got a NOS one at Turlock so I didn't have to blast the cheap chrome off the one I had. These bumpers are definately tough, as I bounced mine off a steel gaurdrail, and the bumper was not affected at all. (The gaurdrail was another story....)
