Re: Blind Back Model A's

Greg, If you open both rear doors and place a 1x3 across the jambs what is the distance to the rear window? The 1930-31 blindbacks always look longer than the 1929, I've never had this measurement....

Re: Hasler's 1931 Slant Windshield Town Sedan

We don't have ravines back East so I'm guessing this was a rust free West Coast find. Bob

Re: Are all 28 29 gas tanks the same

If you have a tank that is rotted out, but has a good top offer it to a Hot Rodder. Far better to use a junk tank than cut up a useable one, shipping would be cheaper too. Bob

Re: victoria length?

Not bad, nine minutes for an answer. Was that on file or was a trip to the garage required? BobW

Re: AR engine numbers

Just learned that there are different pads A 854 that Mot posted is the first I've ever seen like that and those numbers look larger to me. I'll check things closer tomorrow. Bob

AR engine numbers

Were the engine numbers that were stamped in the early 1928 "AR" blocks done with larger stamps than the later blocks that we are used to seeing? Bob

Re: Edsel's 1930 Model A Ford

I'm so glad to see the car restored, feel bad pointing out things that may have been changed years after it was built. This holds true with the second Edsel Speedster, the red one that is now green,...

Re: Edsel's 1930 Model A Ford
