An online gateway to the Model "A" Ford hobby and antique car trunks.
1929 Model "AA" Ford Stakebed Truck
This truck spent most of its life working on a family farm in Yolo county and later as a "attention getter" parked outside the Elkhorn Station Restaurant on the banks of the American River near Sacramento.  Its career in advertising was cut short by the "great recession" of 2008-2011 when the owner listed it for sale on Craigslist.  The opportunity was too good to pass up and Elkhorn was soon added to TBG.  Finding parts for its restoration has been difficult.   The rear fenders and wire-wheel AA hubcaps are very hard to find as reproductions are not available.  Very few of the rear fenders survived undamaged.  Eventually it lead to getting a second "AA" just for parts (that was the excuse).

​After a hornets nest was removed from the carburetor, the truck roared to life and was driven off the trailer and into its new home.  These trucks were build to last.
