Is there a way to tell the difference between a 1929 and a 1930 ford AA truck? Thanks Bill

As I remember Model A's, the '28 and '29 had the short radiator, the '30 and '31 the tall one.

Not sure if the AA used the same cowl as the A, but I would imagine so. The best way to tell the difference is if the cowl flows smoothly into the body, it's a 30 or 31, but if there's a definite "step", where the cowl is a bit narrower than the body, it's a 28 or 29. There's also some subtle differences in the body, where the bottom of the 30/31 has a "bead" all along the lower edge (like the bottom of the doors) and the 28/29 doesn't, it's just flat all the way to the bottom. The radiator shell is a little different, too, but I'm not real sure what the differences are.

Regarding the stepped cowling. In the past, and even up to the 50's, It was common for manufacturers to re title unsold inventory as the next years model and sell them that way. I have seen models with stepped cowl which the owners swore was a 29, when it was most likely a 28 that was retitled and sold as a 29.
