Anthony gravity dump

Post by s147881 » July 11th, 2021, 7:06 pm

I just purchased a March 1930 AA Ford with a Anthony gravity dump on it. Looking at AA Ford’s web site it says they were installed 7/30 and later. Is this gravity box correct for this March 30 truck?

See table above. Could they have installed this box earlier than 7/30?

That list is of Ford sold dump bodies. Yours could have been sold as a cab and chassis
and the owner installed the dump box.

Yes, Bob C is correct that Ford didn't sell complete dump trucks prior to the dates indicated on the table. About 50% of AA's sold were those with a cab only or just a chassis. These were sold to IBS (independent body suppliers). IBS could have been used at the Ford dealers, by the owners, or directly by IBS.

Below is a photo of an early 1928 AA dump truck.

FYI - In the above table, Type 202-A is a Ford assigned body identification. Your AA would not have that type id. Anthony would have their company id.

Neil - do you think this same dump would have been available in early 30?

My guess is likely yes. The attached is from the Ford Truck Fax - Other Bodies & Equipment section. It is probably taken from an Anthony ad. It shows two gravity dump bodies (but no Anthony model numbers are given). Note the top dump body is installed on a 1929 AA-chassis.

I suggest the dump truck in the ad above is a 1928 with air brushed 1929 wheels (not very well done), Note the rear edge of the splash apron and the hood louvres. Hmm.

Probably correct. Also note that there are no front bumpers. An early 1928 feature.
