Ford's Model T was famously modified and adapted to commercial uses both from new and in innumerable kits applied to Model T’s that had run their course as family cars. Ford recognized the desirability of a more rugged Model T in 1917 and introduced the worm gear final drive Model TT with a more rugged 125" wheelbase chassis frame. The distinction continued in 1928 when the new 3-speed 40hp Model A passenger car was complemented by a Model AA commercial chassis with a 4-speed sliding gear transmission, big brakes and semi-elliptical rear springs. Even more rugged and practical than the already nearly bullet-proof Model A, the Model AA commercial chassis served in a variety of uses for generation. This 1928 Ford Model AA is configured as a tow truck with a Weaver Autocrane boom in a full pickup-style bed that offers functional practicality for modern users with the appeal of a period commercial vehicle. It is liveried in grey with black fenders and running boards and identified by painted lettering for "Franky's Standard & Towing." With steel wheels and black wall tires, it is purposeful, its presence enhanced by a set of vary-colored fluid cans in the bed, emergency lights on the front bumper and a red light/siren combination on the left front fender complemented by a Motometer radiator cap. A box on the right running board contains a set of kerosene flares. The interior is plain black leatherette with practical rubber floor mats. It has been restored to very good truck standards with quality paint, interior, trim and attention to details. It will represent an auto-related business with style and character, proudly run errands for a collection or be priceless as a tow/push truck at vintage auto races.
