Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

Maybe Henry could have afforded to build the T until his death, but could he have sold it? 1923 was the high water mark for the T. After that, production and price dropped every year as customers...

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

I've owned Model A but no non-Ford cars from that era, so I have no basis for comparison. But I have owned both Fords and MoPars from the late-30s. The ChryCo cars are better built.

What is this truck?

What can you folks tell me about this truck? It's obviously early-40s Ford stake-bed. But I don't recall hood vents like that or the V/8 stamped in the sheet metal rather than an applied badge.

As one of those seniors with diminished eyesight, I find your bold font annoying, not helpful.

OTOH, I've seen posts where the wrong word changes the meaning to the exact opposite of what the poster intended.

Question Bright 32 Radiator Shell?

I've seen a few pictures of passenger and commercial 32 Fords that appear to be original and have bright (stainless? chrome?) radiator shells. Was that a Ford option? Or just aftermarket?

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
