The White Settlement His-torical Museum announced the arrival of the late James Warner, Sr.’s 1929 Ford Model AA 1-Ton Farm Truck to be exhibited on the Museum grounds.  

Mr. Warner (1928-2013) served as a valued member of the Museum Board of Directors. He drove this truck for many years in the annual White Settlement Area Chamber of Commerce Parade as the Museum’s Antique/Classic Auto Entry; he and his truck invariably won First Place. Mr. Warner purchased this truck in Ohio when it came up for sale as it was the truck he had personally driven, when younger, while working and making deliveries for Mayhew Grain Company. The truck has 48 horsepower and can go 32 mph.

The vehicle identification plate says it was manufactured on June 14, 1929 at the Ford Motor Company Plant in Detroit, Michigan.
