Thanks, Kim. I've been looking for 2 years and have found no reproductions and only 4 originals. These were only used on AA trucks through mid '28, so not a lot out there. I'd give a good price to anyone that can round some up!

Consideration - These wheel nuts can be reproduced. An AA friend had a machinist friend make him a set. I saw the results and they looked very original. This was many years ago and I think the cost was about $20 each.

In Feb. 1929, Ford recalled (free to owners) prior AA's to replace the spindles with new AA spindles. This recall, eliminated the wheel nuts you are searching for.

Thanks Neil. Maybe where I need to be looking is in the scrap pile behind some old Ford dealership buildings!

Following up on Neil's comment, if there are any machinists out there that might be willing to undertake such a project, please let me know : )
