Help identifying the vehicle

Post by CanadianKid » May 27th, 2021, 2:22 pm

Hello all I'm Scott and I just purchased my dream vehicle.
Not much is known so I'm hoping you all can help me out. my best guess is a 29 aa dump truck. I don't know much but I've wanted one of these since I was knee high. Any advice or knowledge is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance and over the next few years I hope to update you all with my progress

Mid 1930-31. The wheels look like '31, bumper late 1930-31, Model A radiator and shell.
Post some more pictures for more information.

The radiator shell and headlights are from a car, not a commercial vehicle. I see the cowl also has holes for cowl lights, also indicating it if from a car. It does have a mixture of '30 and '31 rims. From the heavy axles it is a late '30 or 1931. The fenders with two piece splash apron say 1930. As body parts have been swapped the serial number on the frame will tell you exactly what it is.

It looks like all you will have to do is remove the splash apron on the drivers side to find your serial number as the body is missing in that area.

Note – The number of the ID allows for the identification of the month when a given engine passed an engine run-in test. After stamping, the engine was released for vehicle final assembly. The engine number only dates the final approval of the assembled run-in engine, not the casting dates of the engine components, not the actual assembly date of the engine components, and not the assembly date of the vehicle.

Check the table at https://aafords.com/aa-information/#men for engine number month-year.

The driver's side wheel lugs are reverse threaded. ie loosen clockwise. The previous owner didn't get the memo and snapped off a stud on the left front wheel. At least you won't have to correct a previous restoration. Have fun/good luck. Ed
