Model AA Jacks

Compiled by Rick Black and Neil Wilson

All 1928—1929 AA trucks were delivered with a 13-piece tool kit. All 1930—1932 AA trucks were delivered with a 15-piece tool kit. The tool kits were identical to the passenger cars except for the tire iron, crank, jack, jack handle, and (for 1930—1932) a separate wheel nut wrench and handle was included.

There were many jacks that looked similar to the AA jack, so consult the MAFCA/MARC Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards for more info. The 2016 revision has an entire section for AA vehicles.
