Beginning in June 1931, Ford offered grain cargo bodies for both the AA157 and AA131. These bodies were constructed of hard wood with heavy flooring. The permanent grain sides with flare boards were installed with malleable iron supports at each cross sill (external to the cargo area). There was a hinged/folding door in the grain body tail gate.

248-A Grain with AA131 – 6/31 – production end (Omaha Body & Equipment Co.) – 84″ wide x 102″ long x 26″ high (with grain extensions)
Extension grain sides and extension stock sides were available as optional equipment. The entire stock rack tail gate was painted white for good visibility at night. The grain body flare and rail boards included pockets for either the extension grain or the extension stock sides. Equipment could be ordered as follows (each priced differently):
Extension grain sides
Extension stock sides
Combination extension grain sides and stock sides
