1929 Ford Model AA Truck Bus
Engine no. CAP7329 (see text)

According to its old registration papers, this Model AA first arrived in Holland in 1995, and has been registered through those documents with the engine number 2828279, and with the correlating year of manufacture as 1930. Today, this unit appears to have been replaced with a slightly later Canadian built 'CAP' prefix unit.
The bus is configured with rows of seating access from doors on its near side. Its structure is for the lower half of the body, with fully open sides simply covered with canvas 'side screen' type window panels, which can be rolled up and stowed. The passenger compartment could comfortably accommodate 6-8 people, with a further 1 or 2 in addition to the driver in the driving cabin. The woodwork has an appealing patina of age, while the seating seems to have been recovered in hard wearing vinyl.
Complete with a large luggage rack on the top accessed by a side mounted ladder, the bus has the appearance of old world transport perhaps from the railway to a hotel or seaside resort. Be it for commercial vehicle events, or simply to fill with people and drive to the pub, it would certainly make an eye catching and fun conveyance.
