Hi Darrell. Welcome to the NTC. For starters, I would refer you to our Manuals library here where you can download a free copy of the Ford NAA Owner's Manual and a rare and informative Ford NAA advertising brochure
You need to get both rear wheels dismounted ASAP and have the tires removed. If you do this yourself, be advised that they can weigh several hundred pounds each when loaded and can be hard to handle by yourself. An ag tire or commercial tire place can do this for you. If the tubes had been filled with a calcium chloride solution and had been leaking for a bit, you may have significant rust damage on your wheel(s). They may be repairable or worst case, you'll need to replace them. You will definitely need new tubes. You may want to hold off on filling the new tubes until you use your Jube for a bit and determine that you actually need the extra traction afforded by loading your rear tires.
Holler back if you have more questions. We have a number of folks here who own NAAs and will be happy to share their experience. BTW, the NAA model was manufactured in 1953 and '54. Only the '53 model is correctly referred to as the Jubilee in recognition of Ford's 50th anniversary.
