Restored 1929 Model AA Ford Truck





I took these pictures of DOT 1, a fully restored 1929 Model AA one-ton Ford truck that has been owned by the Florida Department of Transportation for over 30 years. It had been on display for the Department's centennial celebration earlier in the day. These pictures were taken behind the FDOT state headquarters building right before they loaded it into another truck to be transported to its next destination. The last picture shows what the truck looked liked before it was restored.

Linking to Tuesday's Treasures and Our World Tuesday.

Beautiful photos, Lois! And what a nice truck. When I was little, I'd visit my grandmother on her farm in northern Minnesota. One of her neighbors drove a Model T. That wasn't unusual in those days and I learned how to crank engines to get 'em started! Those are good memories. Thanks.

Amazing what a restoration can do!!! Hmmmm wonder if there's a restoration for people that looks that good and would last this well!! Well probably not one that's affordable for most -- trucks or people!! Great capture for the day, Lois, as always!! Hope your week is going well!!
