Default Model A "Monster" Truck

Model A Monster Truck back in the day, from Old Cars Weekly at:

http://www.oldcarsweekly.com/news/qa...91&rid=3386525

"The car (top photo) is certainly a 1928 or ’29 Model A Ford Tudor sedan. The front spoke wheels look like they’re from an early Model AA truck, and the rears match the disc wheels used on 1929 Model AAs. I think the front fenders have been modified from the original Model A items. I thought the rear fenders might be from a McCormick Deering 10-20 tractor, but the edge detail doesn’t quite match. They could be from a Fordson tractor. By coincidence, Old Cars Weekly technical editor Ron Kowalke recently came across another, similar photo (bottom) of a 1940 Ford, modified by a Minnesota mail carrier. It looks like tractor rims and tires have been grafted onto Budd wheels from a ’30s truck. And we thought monster trucks were a modern phenomenon."
