I need suggestions and help with pricing a 1935 ford 1 and half ton wheat truck in good condition, no rust, great wood, and restored to original shape. I am contacting museums and ford company, but I will take advice from anywhere and filter through.Thanks.

If there are any, sold listings on ebay will give the true market price. If not, the bidders will show it to you. Everything else is just estimates and guesswork.

I wouldn"t call that a rare truck, uncommon today because it"s old. Believe it or not my neighbor has one, a ton and a half with a grain box. It"s a sad thought but if you sold it someone would probably use the cab to restore a pickup which is more valuable or to build a rat rod.

By wheat truck I assume you"ve got a tight wood box with good sides and floor. If it hauled grain it would have a hoist. My 35, absolutely rust free and running I paid $800 for at a farm sale in North Central Nebraska. Very common here in MN, the Fords and the Studebakers were plentiful. I've seen them advertised for as high as 2000, but for that it had better have a good title and matching numbers. Ford did not use a vin number in those years. The number is stamped on the frame by the steering sector and on the rear crossmember over the rear axle. And on the Transmission. They MUST match your title to have anything viable in a Ford. Pics are essential, are the tires correct and good? Can I drive it down the road at 40mph and stop? My 2 bits

What do you mean by wheat truck?
I have searched the Ford archives and there is no mention of a wheat truck.

What makes the truck rare? Were there a limited number made? My uncle has grandpa's 1930 AA grain truck in original shape. I'm not sure it's rare. It's old, but I don't know about rare. If it weren't touched (as in restored) it would increase the value.

The best advice is call your insurance agent and ask who he recommends as an antique auto appraiser. I have several antique vehicles and find the appraisers to be pretty spot on. I think you will be disappointed, but they will be accurate.

a ford AA truck is way more common than a 35 Ford.

The phrase restored to orig shape is just an opinion. Pictures are your best friend.
