Re: What Is This Bolt For?

Re: Which Car-Like Vehicles Can Tow a Model A?

The advantage of a pickup tow vehicle is you can haul tools, parts, whatever in the bed. Anyway, the U-Haul site you linked gives specs for both trailer and tow vehicle. They say the trailer weighs...

Re: Women buy shoes: Guys buy toys[old Fords]

Dang, I gotta read the HAMB more! Very nice old hot rod. That 283/39 trans swap was pretty common "back in the day." I agree I wouldn't change a thing...well, maybe some flames on the hood. :D

Re: '32 woody color

FWIW, the Model A color is Manila Brown. AFAIK, all A ('29 - '31) station wagons, special deliveries, and travelers wagons were that color.

Re: What are some of the counter intuitive things you have learned about a Model A?

Well, yes and no. The Model A did NOT have a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) as such. Per the Instruction Book:

Re: Help ID horns

Any markings on them? Bracket on one looks like Model A so I'd agree they're probably aftermarket replacements. $1K each is a little optimistic - maybe for the pair. :D

Re: Killin time with Covid 19 and JC Whitney

That $23 is about $180 in 2020 dollars. For comparison, Snyder sells the 3:78 set for $450. :eek:

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

The "original" debate has been raging for the 60 years I've been involved with old cars and no doubt well before then. It will never be settled because there are so many definitions of the term. ...

Re: 1932 Ford roadster size question.

I'm 6'. We've owned both Model A coupe and closed cab pickup. The pickup had no seat adjustment and was tight but manageable. The coupe had adjustment but even with the seat all the way back, it...

Re: Model A frame - pickup vs coupe

Yup. Many years ago before we knew this, we put a 30 body on an early frame - hood never did fit quite right.

Re: Can I run my A on White Lightning Moonshine?

And it ended at -37. Commodity traders had little or no storage for oil coming due for delivery per contract, and for which there was no demand. So they were paying to have it taken off their hands.

There's lots of how-to info on the net about painting a car with a brush (or usually a roller). Hot Rod even did an article on it:

Nope - top of flywheel housing. Curiously, the block still has the (blank) number pad like A.

Re: Thermo Quail

Did Ford offer thermo-quails as an authorized accessory? I thought the originals were non-thermo and thermos are a reproduction adaptation.
