The Ford Model A as a Daily Driver for a Year
Jonathan Klinger's coworkers thought he was bluffing when he said he wanted
to drive a Ford Model A every day for a year -- including winter ... in
northern Michigan. But he followed through, and he's been doing it in a
project he calls "365 Days of A," documenting his progress on a blog of the
same name. RoundAbout host Craig Cole went for a walkaround of the Model A
that Jonathan's been driving for nearly a year.

Les Andrews Model A Timing Part 1 of 2
Les Andrews gave an excellent seminar at Tiffany Ford in Hollister, CA on
Feb. 13, 2010 going into all the details of how to properly set up the
ignition timing on a Model A, and why doing so is important. This is part 1
of 2 parts. Recorded hand held from my seat in the audience with a
1931 FORD AA TRUCK - REPLACEMENT FOR THE MODEL TT TRUCK
A replacement for the Ford Model T and the Ford model TT truck needed to be
found. So, in '29 the Model A Ford cars and the Model AA Ford truck were
introduced. The AA trucks were powered by the same 201-cubic-inch (3.3 L)
engine that the Model A Ford used, amazingly enough. However, The engine
produced a maximum of 40 horsepower at 2,200 rpm. The
engine featured an up-draft carburetor, six-volt generator, 2-blade fan,
mechanical water pump, mechanical oil pump, electric starter and four-row
radiator. All of these features were identical to the Model A Ford except
the radiator. The engine could also be crank started if necessary by a hand
crank that is inserted through a hole in the radiator shell. The Model AA
Ford was available with a number of options. Two wheelbases were available,
the short wheelbase of 131.5 inches and the long wheelbase of 157 inches.
Various body styles were available on different chassis. Specialty bodies
include: Funeral Coach, Ambulance, Express Pickup, Dump Truck, and a cab
without a bed. Ford licensed the manufacture of the Model A and AA to a
variety of nations, notably the Soviet Union. The GAZ AA was produced in
the 1930s and 1940s. The GAZ version had a cargo capacity of 1500 kg.
In October 1931 a Ford Model AA was the first vehicle produced at Ford's
own new Dagenham plant in England. In some countries, like Uruguay and
Cuba, one can still see AA trucks in use, more than 80 years after their
introduction. The Model AA truck testifies to the slogan " Ford tough
trucks ", and this example of a 83 year old truck proves it. This flat
bed AA is a rare sight at car shows and I was pleased to bring this example
to you. Thanks very much for viewing the Model AA Ford truck.
The Model AA was also built in several nations in mainland Europe under
license from the Ford Corporation. Several armored vehicles were based on
