1929 Ford Other --

Truck is for sale but currently on exhibit at Kansas Auto Museum. I drove it 40 miles the day it went to the museum. Extremely Rare 1929 Museum Quality Ford Model AA Dump Truck. An extremely fine example of a well preserved collectible that will likely not be seen again. It was part of the Harrah's Museum collection and held in a private collections only to appear available here briefly and then probably will disappear again forever becoming unobtainable. This truck is equipped with a hydraulic dump, wood and stake bed grain bed. You will note the rare B on the rear knuckle, denoting the earmarks of the highly sought after factory 4 speed transmission. This AA battery starts and hand cranks with ease, runs, drives in all 4 gears plus reverse and brakes remarkably well. The truck's hydraulic lever in the cab was disconnected by a prior owner so will be remain disconnected and a new owner can be the first to pull that lever in most likely many, many decades! Galion and Wood Mfg. Co. built all of the dump bodies offered by Ford on their heavy-duty AA and BB chassis during the 1930s. Galion (now Galion Godwin Truck Body Co.) is the oldest known truck body manufacturer still in operation today. This may very well be the first Ford dump truck ever made, and as a prototype, as the hydraulic dump was unavailable until the 1930 Ford model year. Dust remains on the truck in its present heated and cooled museum location and as shown in the pics because it dust was on the car when it was discovered a few years ago. The wood floor was in the bed and popped back into the cab but the dust as found remains on this fine truck in the gallery. Authenticity is well demonstrated with amazing period paint and patina and virtually no deterioration. An easy find but please note the passenger side mirror as shown in the pics has gone missing since photos were taken. Certainly not an after thought is the wood bed. This was 1st cutting lumber at the time of harvest (trees were hundreds of years old before harvesting) and the truck itself is nearly a century old so it is most likely that this bed is actually older than THE USA itself! watch?v=IO6IgOtI180
