Return to Restoration Index Page

After sitting idle for almost 20 years, this Ford Model AA truck is now one of the most frequently used at the museum. It has required a certain amount of work over the years, as you would expect for such an old vehicle. Its gas tank had to be removed to be repaired around 2003 when it was brought out of retirement. The cab roof had to be completely rebuilt in 2007 as most of the wood had rotted away. This work was done by Ray Williamson, who had to modify a kit designed for a 30/31 AA truck, which, like regular Model A Fords were more streamlined. In 2015 its original radiator fan had to be replaced with a modern six blade fan due to a crack at the root of the originals two blades. It sounds simple but the radiator had to come out to allow the project to happen which involves cutting the wires to the headlights which run through the radiator shell.
