Re: Really old gasoline question

Why would you chance it??
That’s not $25 worth of gas.
The “pinch” would have to be really significant

Re: Sport Coupe to Cabriolet conversion

You could likely make it look “somewhat” like a cabby but way too many differences.
Most if the body parts at not even close to similar
WHN got it right lmho

Re: 32 Cabriolet repro parts?

Lots of guys may be able to make one by the other. You’d be shocked at how many parts are fabricated on the rarer body styles
Mirror image?? How about post a pic ??

Re: What have you found working on your A?

I found some political cards given out to entice a voter in 1932. Been there awhile it was a 1930 Tudor
They were from Nebraska
Lots of pennies, match books, even saw some green stamps ....how...

Re: 1929 Cabriolet door window parts

To the best of my knowledge no one makes the special slides in the door that the window frames ride/guide in
Scarce puppies!

Re: 1929 Cabriolet door window parts

I make the replacement window surround in stainless (or mild steel) with bottom mounting but not the regulators nor the guides that go in the doors. If that helps any

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

Why wouldn’t the true measure be to go to live auction sites such as B-J and others?
I haven’t tried it to know if there are enough transactions of “original” or close cars.
Also how much history...

Re: Two tooth steering box lower race removal

Make a “tool” if you have the capability to press thru both holes at once
Then put in a press. Equal pressure should work better

Re: $1500 Model A Horn

I’d buy it if there were two!
I think dual chrome horns would look great.

With the price of chrome they really might cost you that
