Re: How many Model A Phaetons were made?

[QUOTE=Jim/GA;1800139]




The phaeton was about 30% of Model A sales outside the USA in 1928-29, while it was only 3-5% of sales in the USA. This is due to price (import tariffs were charged on...

Re: 7-tooth column leaking post-rebuild

They actually do leak, right from day one [Model A era]. That is why grease was put in them in the old days, which is a bad thing to do to a steering box of this type.

Re: Information on "Transition" (1927) Model A

Ah ,the Phillipines. Some of the old cars got a very hard life in places like Sth America & even here in NZ. To keep them going a lot of 'mix n match' went on but if there were not many sponsor cars...

Re: Ford Flathead 4 vs V-8 Frames?

32 info is the domain of David Rehor [ DavidG] over on Early V8 '32-'53 site. He literally 'wrote the book" on '32's [The 1932 Ford Book, Early V8 Club]. Cheers.

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

Doubt that it has had a warrant for many years ; maybe an ex farm hack?

Re: 29 Clutch Problem

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

Took a sec. to realise that is in NZ. How many cut down '32's are still around? Common on A's, but '32's were always rare & coveted. Must have been a roadster. Do not think that would pass a WOF [...

Re: Steering column bracket

Ford Aust. did produce & sell Model A's in 1931 & 1932, it is just that they were 1930 models. They would have had enough inventory due to low sales that there was no need to use the '31 parts,...
