Re: 1930 Model A top

"I'm trying to figure out how much chop a 1930 Ford coupe has."

Re: Labaron Bonnie

Jeff,
You don't show where you live, but if you are close enough you might head over there...or a friend in the area? Fellow Barn member?



Brent,

Re: Fake eBay listing

Also, I think there are many non car people that use "Model A" as a generic term for any old car. Like some call all soda types Coke even when they want an orange.


Whatever it is, I like it! ...

Re: Brake adjustment - Frustration

It depends upon where you have the jack stands.

NOT under the frame rails...under the front and rear axles.

Re: Shift-Speeds

The manual calls for a shift from 2nd to 3rd at 12-15 MPH. I assume that's with the standard 3.78 gears. I'd think with a 4:11 rear end you'd want to be in 3rd before that.
