Re: What's a TT Truck Windshield Frame Look Like?:

I'm still wanting a lower TT truck windshield frame, such as Willie in Houston pictured above. Anybody know if that is reproduced? Anybody have a real one?

Re: doors

Just what are the differences between the 26-27 coupe doors and the 28-29 Pickup doors? Except for maybe the hinges, aren't they interchangeable?

Re: TROG Build On Left Coast

Thanks for the pictures and write-up on the TROG type build you are doing. I will probably try to build one myself. Just to be sure if I am following your logic, etc: The reason (benefit) for...

If I could find the left and right front irons, I believe I could piece together an entire set of top irons for my 28-29 phaeton project. So, I am looking for either the front irons, or else an...

Re: '34 Spindles Interchangeable Side to Side?

Yes, I see what you mean. I'll keep looking. I may have more axles with spindles hidden away out of sight that will solve the problem.

'34 Spindles Interchangeable Side to Side?

When I drug a '34 Ford front end out of a shed recently, I noted that the passenger side spindle had been been stuck down in the dirt, and it's now very rusty and pitted, especially the threads. I...

What is a TT C Cab Grainbed Truck Worth

Many years ago I locked a mid 1920's TT C Cab Grain bed truck in a small shop in southwest North Dakota. Its time to settle the farm estate so I've either got to go get the TT and trailer back to...

Re: Are all A frames the same?

There's an extra body mounting bracket on either side (towards the rear) of a late Frame that I have. Still not absolutely sure what Ford needed that extra bolt-down bracket for. Maybe for a...

Re: Found 39 coupe today

I found most of a 39 coupe a ways east of Bozeman. It had been placed in the bank of the Yellowstone River (for rip-rap?) Torched the top off a little below the belt line, and hauled it home for...

Re: Any Phaeton Top Irons Interchange 28-31?

Yeas, that's it. I had saved that picture and a couple others. Nice Phaeton! It has almost the exact same blue color that was on my phaeton body when I got it in 1983 or so.

Re: Any Phaeton Top Irons Interchange 28-31?

Any pics or measurements would be appreciated, Artiki. The length of the front bows is one area where a measurement of length might be really telling on whether early or late. I have it in my mind...

Re: 1928 Phaeton Top Irons Pictures

Thanks for the pictures, Tom! They will really help me identify what portions of '28 phaeton top irons I have (if any), and what I don't have.

Any Phaeton Top Irons Interchange 28-31?

Re: Twin Spares an option in 1930?

To clarify about the cowl brackets: These brackets held steel arms that came out the sides of the cowl up high, and the arms were to hold the tops of the side mounts steady. The other typical steel...

Actually, the picture in my avatar is that roadster without spares in the wells. That picture was taken in 1978.

Re: Twin Spares an option in 1930?

Re: 81A heads?

Are Denver heads sometimes referred to as "Rocky Mountain heads?" Someone was mentioning the latter to me as being the best ones.

Also, where do Ford EAB heads stack up compression-wise?

Re: 130-A Deluxe Delivery 1928 Prototype Info.

That is probably how it happened that some 130-As got 1928 features, but maybe there actually were some made earlier than we think.
