Re: DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

I think the earliest pre-production photos/ads showed the cars without bumpers but as actually released, the bumpers were in fact installed.


Didn't they actually refer to rear bumpers as "fender...

DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

I've seen a photo of new cars being transported and they only had a rim on the spare tire carrier. Was a spare tire something the dealer sold to the new car purchaser?

Re: Biggest scare in a Model A

Re: 1929 Hood Latches won't reach

Re: Two tooth steering box lower race removal

Improved Steering Column Support

does anyone know why there is not the improved steering column bracket for the 28-29 models? does the structure of the earlier models not accommodate such a bracket?

Re: Hood adjustment

I've read somewhere, and I don't know where now, that the Model "A" hood had a tendency to creep forward on the hood rod. It's counter-intuitive to believe that or at least hard to believe that...

I believe you guys have a much smaller population than the US, I think we are many times larger. With no two regions that think alike.

Re: Stupid Question #2: how does an iron frame act as a ground on our cars

Re: Stupid Question #2: how does an iron frame act as a ground on our cars

well gang, I confess I fibbed a little bit. I read in my book about Henry Ford and the D T & I that when he bought the line, it had iron telegraph wires, but they had corroded significantly.

Re: Stupid Question: what kind of tire gauge are you using

oh man, if those were only still manufactured as exact replicas!


I've seen old ads of various contemporary tire gauges and some had almost a 90 degree bend on the stem to make them easy to use.
