Ford Model AA Stake-Bed Truck – Rose Avenue, Venice (CA)

May 24th, 2010 by Mike

Walking around my hood looking for interesting cars is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. If you get sick of GT3s and SEL 6.9s and MG Midgets and Austin Minis, there’s always this elderly Ford truck (circa 1930) with handicap permit in the front and living quarters in the rear. Built Ford Tough takes on a whole new meaning when you see one of these ~ 80 year old workhorses still going strong.

  • Grandpa (yours) was working at Fords when this was built. He wasn’t on the line, but he was working at the Rouge Plant, as a pattern maker for 41 years. You have a great heritage, Michael.

  • I’m a bit surprised that you found the Ford Model AA stake-bed truck parked on the street. They are quite unusual to see nowadays because their pretty old. It looks like it’s working perfectly, though.

  • I have never been, (and probably never will be) and antique car collector but I could easily imagine handing over multiple paychecks to get my hands on this piece of living history! No wonder the owner lives on the back – I wouldn’t want to take my eyes off it either!
