Re: 1929 Dealer Supplement

How did I not know you spent some time on the Southside!

The area is very different today. Well, it varies block to block but some of the old mansions have been brought back as the neighborhood...

Re: 1929 Dealer Supplement

Re: Model A Taxi

Was it one of these custom bodied Henney jobs shown in the first picture or was it the Ford produced 135-A taxi?

Re: Model "A" Ford Clubs

It only takes five like minded people to start a MARC Region. Give the office a call or reach out to Bill Aupperle, the director of regions.

Re: Any info on A217, Sport Coupe on MAFCA website?

Here's my take.

It's a nice looking '28 Sport Coupe that someone should be proud of.

However, by calling out the low serial number, the person who submitted the picture is trying to call out...

Re: So is this pick up a 29 or a 30 ?

Like others have said the '28/'29 square cab was used through mid '30. They then transitioned to the round cab style that was in place until the Steeltop went into production in September of '31.

According to the Paint & Finish Guide they were rubbed out. The Standards don't seem to address it.

Re: 1931 Model AA Paddy Wagon

Hi John,

Check out the September/October 1993 M.A.N. It is the cover car and there is a short article on the construction of the truck. Chuck built the body himself, it's close to an authentic...
