Super Cheap: 1929 Ford AA Truck


This old truck is listed on craigslist for a very reasonable $3,400 or best offer. It runs and drives. I think it looks really cool, but perhaps that’s just me! Luckily for me it’s far away in Duluth, Minnesota. There’s no information provided beyond that and it has a clean title. We’ve watched demand and thus prices of prewar vehicles fall, and this is an example of bargains to be had.


Can you imagine seeing this in your rear-view mirror driving down the highway? You’d have to be driving pretty slow. With the same 40 HP engine as the Model A, it wasn’t going anywhere very fast.


The bed is a newer creation. I hope someone finds a more productive use for this than for shade.


It looks complete and original from here, but it could be hiding lots of interesting things. It could have a very rusty underside and no floors. I can’t imagine doing anything to this truck except repairing any mechanical issues and enjoying it. It would make a perfect parade and hay ride truck. I would enjoy just driving it around town. Do you think this old truck deserves another life?

    Most definitely deserves a glorious retirement. Care for it and drive it. Even use it for some chores. But do NOT park it !!!

    If I had covered parking for it, I would be on the way to pick it up right now. And I’m in SoCal.

      I’m seriously considering how to get to Minnesota right now. Anyone think this thing would drive to Oregon?

      It would be a hell of a way to spend vacation time for sure. I need it to be on the other side of the Rockies. ..

    My wife’s brother inlaw had one of these restored, they used it strictly for parades as it just wouldn’t be safe in todays traffic.

    Both Ellie Mae and Jethro learned to drive in this truck. And actually Jethro was conceived in this rig.

    I would put the body on a newer dually chassis for today’s driving and leave the look as is

    The Beverly Hillbillies truck was a cut down 1921 Oldsmobile model 43-A touring car!
