Maybe someone in Texas could save it.

I was just over on the Ford Barn and it looks like a guy from Texas just bought it. That didn't take long.

Yeah, he listed it on the HAMB at 9:20 am; someone in Connecticut posted the link on Ford Barn at 9:35 am and I called him and bought it shortly after 11:00 am. Flatford39 posted this on the AA Forum at 11:41 am and I had already bought it.

I'm pulling a trailer from the Austin area up to north of Dallas tomorrow morning to retrieve my "prize". My wife saw the "as is" photos and wasn't as excited as I am. As a friend said, "She should know beauty is only skin deep . . . but ugly goes clear to the bone." It takes a real old car (truck) guy to see what lies beneath that rust. :lol:

If you are not driving your AA truck you might as well be collecting clocks!

Whenever you have time I would really appreciate pictures of this truck.

Thanks,

Tom

Wasn't there a AA express like that on The Waltons TV show?

Kid: Yes, it was the same style truck but theirs was a '29 with six hole disc wheels.
Good night John Boy. :wink:

Fred, It may be a little rough around the edges, but it is a genuine AA express. And that's what you'll have in the end, not a "made up" one using scavenged parts and a TT box. Congrats on going after it. As many of us know, if there is such a thing as an AA that has any potential return on investment, it is a genuine express truck.
