Rear springs for starters.
What's the ratchet on the bed by the driver's door for?

Springs are interesting. What's up with the rear lug nuts? I think the ratchet thing by the drivers door is a load ratchet. Either they disconnect the battery after they use it or they really didn't drive it 35 miles.

It appears to have a twist gas cap too! Like mine :wink:
Seems like a good price so far, but on the left coast.

I didn't see the gas cap till you mentioned it. Good thing its on the left coast, or she'd have gotten it for valentines day! She already got some of my favorite candy.

My 1930 AA came with a semaphore type turn signal trafficator that looks just like the one hanging off the cab in the photo. I removed it since it didn't look to be period correct and was scratching the paint - plus a previous owner installed regular turn signals on my truck. Anyone know anything about those gizmos?

He either sold it locally, although he made no disclaimer in the listing, or he sold it under the table, or he pulled it cause the price didn't get high enough...
That's happened to me twice on eBay for cars...
