I really fell in lust with this thing when I found it! PTO, worm gear drive rear end, whats not to love? It only took a couple years and two moves to get it from Wichita KS to North Texas, but I finally got the old '29 ('28 ?) home this Spring. A big dose of life prevented doing much with it til now, but I have finally begun to work on it. Hey, it was running when it was parked in that pasture 30 years ago. A battery, fresh gas, burnish the points, and oh yeah, get the engine unstuck! Refitting and redecking the wooden flatbed, replacing the tires with some used but intact ones (well, I'm poor, and it just wouldn't look right with brand new tires anyway), and, of course... the reason for buying it in the first place : "Honey, I really just had to get something to fit those wire spoke wheels I had." Yeahyeahyeah, I shouldve done my research before buying those wheels for the '29 bodied 1930 AA, but then again, I wouldn't have had a poor excuse to acquire this beauty. Don'tcha just love it when a plan falls together ?
