Some youngster over on the H.A.M.B. has figured out how to 3-D print (in plastic) Model A parts and then use that to make a mold to cast the actual piece. This stuff is WAY over my head, but it looks...

Re: who has (or is interested in) F-1 panel trucks?

When I bought Clarence in 1973 it had the "fold forward" passenger seat in it. Stupid me I put some sort of late model bucket seats in it sometime in the 80's. I have no idea what I did with those...

Re: who has (or is interested in) F-1 panel trucks?

No matter what year, rear Ford panel truck doors are made either from unobtanium or superpriceum.

b-t-w; the truck in that advertisement would be just about exactly what my panel truck (Clarence; see avatar) looked like when it left the factory. Except that Clarence never had the stainless...

I'm interested in swapping information and/or stories.

I've had my 1948 panel truck since February, 1973.

Also, if you know of any of these resting in salvage yards please speak up.

1948 panel truck rear door latches

I'm needing the door latches for both rear doors of an F-1 panel truck. Rods, strikes, attaching plates, the whole shootin' match.

Re: thumbnail pics and full page pics?

Yeah. That's the way I see it.

In the "old days" pix could be loaded so that they showed up full size in the post without having to click on them.

Oh well; I guess it doesn't work any more.

Re: thumbnail pics and full page pics?

Let me bring this back up (eleven years later). I can only post thumbnails and don't see how to post full size.

Re: 1951 Victoria rear ring/pinion replacement

A 3.31:1 would work just fine. Maybe even a 3.54:1. BUT, where do you find one? I've been looking for complete rears and ring/pinion sets. These things appear to be made of unobtanium.

Anyone got...

189 views and no pix. I know you guys/gals are the world's best with Model A's, but I guess you'd rather drive them than photograph them.
