Re: rootlieb hood quality

I can fix the hood, it will take probably 30 hours labor, which would equal more than the cost of a Rootlieb hood.



Thanks for the responses, I just wanted to hear from people with 1928-29...

Re: Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

Can anyone with a 38-29 or 30-31 roadster pickup measure their top bows width where they mount to the windshield and the overall width at that part of the top irons?

Any help would be greatly...

Re: Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

Chris, that is what I need (28-29) too!

If anyone has a 29-29 and can measure the front width at the windshield and the length of the supports that go down to the body that would help a lot.

Re: Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

I measured the width at the back and it is 51 inches on the top irons. The width of the tub where the top irons attach is 51 inches so I am thinking it should be for a 28-29 roadster pickup.

Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

I found a nice used top bow for a model A roadster pickup, but I do not know what the difference if any is between a 1929 and 1930 roadster pickup top bow/irons.

Re: Steering column lengths

Thanks Bob!

Yes the steering column is like the 29 version, but doesn't have a gear box welded at the bottom.
I am reasonably certain it is the 29 gemmer steering column for the 2 tooth gear. ...

Re: Steering column lengths

Thanks, but I already checked that and the horn rod is longer than the steering column tube.

I will try to get photos posted if that helps.

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Thanks! I looked at the too. It doesn't list what would have been available for commercial vehicles. Could a fleet color be any of the available colors for all 1929 vehicles?
