Default Model A Chassis drawings

I once stumbled onto a bunch of factory blueprints for every Model A ever made, but now I can't find the website again. Does anyone know it?...

The drawings were from side, top, and front/rear, with numerous dimensions listed.

Is this the site you are looking for?? It moved recently...

http://www.motormayhem.net/mode-a-fo...pecifications/

Not really blueprints...body dimensions that I believe are from the salesman's manual.

The drawings from the motormayhem web site are from a 72 page booklet, Ford Model A restoration manual A-1, copyright 1955 by Ford Motor Company. It has alot more information and specifications than just the drawings.

Which some of it appears to be incorrect. For example, under transmissions he lists the gear ratios as:
  • 8.75:1 (Low)
  • 6.9:1 (Middle)
  • 1:1 (High)
Not sure that is very accurate.

So...does anyone know the origins for sure? The body drawings are identical in style and type of measurement to those from early V8 Salesman's books, but I have never seen a Model A sales manual...have always assumed that had to be the source.
They sure didn't originate in the Clymer and Ford 1950's publications!

Me too:

The drawings I saw included every body style Ford offered. I am most interested in AA & A pickup.
