I hope someone here can help me out! I have an old picture from 1948 of me and my siblings in front of my uncle's truck, and I'm trying to figure out what year/model of truck it is. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it. You can see the pictures here:

Thanks!

I'm not sure if I know how to post a picture in this forum, but I'll give it a whirl with that "optional image url" box below...

After more digging, my sister was able to find a picture that has the front of the truck in the background, so I'm posting that here, as well.

It's a 28-29 Ford AA. The pickups were model A's but the big trucks were AA. The 30-31 Fords don't "scoop" in at the cowl like a 28-29 does.

It's also interesting that 28-29 trucks share doors with Model T's, I guess Henry had some left over...

Oh, and just for curiosity's sake, when did they stop making Model A's, and what came after?

The last year for A's was 1931. The classic 1932 Ford came next. They came in 4 cylinder versions - the model B - and V8 versions, the famous Flathead! They are a little more rounded, and use the "French Curve" design extensively in body lines, dash, headlight bar, etc...If you happen to have one out behind the barn it's worth some money, it's the holy grail of early Fords. The 33 and 34 trucks were very similar to 32 but the cars got a thinner, laid back grill and smoother body lines.
