Re: Vicky bracket ?????

Nope. The two rear braces go between the belt rail and the main bow and are bent on only the bow end. The side braces go between the rear door post (B-pillar) and the main bow and are bent only on...

Re: Trailer hitch

Given Mac's disclaimer, there's been quite a bit of debate in this thread over the sturdiness of their hitch. But if one actually reads the disclaimer, it says, "Since factory Model A's are very...

Had a Cutlass with 350/4-barrel - too much power, front heavy, rear light and having posi-traction didn't help. It would slide if someone spit on the street. Also had a 4-cylinder Fiero -...

Re: Model A - 2 bucks

Guide, aka BLC, aftermarket replacements with the parking light on top. I think they also were OEM on some non-Ford trucks. They've been around since the 30s and became sealed beams at some point. ...

Re: What Is This Bolt For?

You guys just weren't looking in the right place. :D

My Dad used a temporary version of this when roofing:

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

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

The engine number is analogous to the VIN in that it identifies a particular...

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: 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: 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.

Re: Anyone catch it?

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