Lot 230 - 1931 Ford Model AA Truck
|Odometer reading||63 miles|
|Estimate||£9,000 - £12,000|
|Result||Sold - £11,320|
The Ford Model A was manufactured between 1928 and 1931 and was the second huge success for Ford after its predecessor, the Model T. The Model A was offered in a wide variety of body styles and was the first Ford to incorporate the standard set of driver controls with a conventional clutch, brake pedal, accelerator and gearchange. Shortly after the launch of the car came new trucks, namely the Model A and the 1½ ton Model AA. Built on a steel chassis with a 131 ½” wheelbase, the AA was fitted with stronger transverse leafsprings. In 1929 a four-speed manual gearbox became standard. High pressure pneumatic tyres were used all round, as were mechanical drum brakes.
This handsome truck was imported into the UK in 2017. We are advised it runs and drives although this Ford will require some recommissioning. The green coachwork is in good order and the open style load space is finished with wooden sides. Supplied with a V5C registration document, these trucks are great for some local advertising or to be used as office art and they are becoming increasing rare.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
