Re: 31 Roadster on eBay...Looks like a scam to me

Lots of "fine point" detailing on that car. Looks like it was a Marc of Excellence winner at one of the past National Meets.
Always have to be careful buying on E-Bay.

Re: Calling all Side Mount 31 Carbs that you have

I have acquired a few side bowl style carbs over the past 30 or so years
since that is the correct one for my late '31 Tudor. Pardon the dust as some of these have been sitting on the same shelf...

Re: Tudor front seats question

Beginning in about June of 1931 Ford began producing the Deluxe Tudor.
Lots of changes from the early 1931 Tudors. The front seats did have an extended back that eliminated the gap on the earlier...

The '31 deluxe tudor seat was indeed wider than the non deluxe tudor.

Re: Standard vs. Deluxe 1930 Tudor Sedans

In addition to above, the driver's seat was about 3 inches wider on the 1931 Deluxe Tudor.

Most of the 30+ differences between 1930 ?? and 1931 deluxe tudors were minor and also found on non...

Wrong break backing plates for 1928 coupe ?

My 1928 Special Coupe was judged at the Loveland National Meet last year and scored very well.

Re: Would you buy them all?

I figured right off that they were Chevys. Model A's would have been priced higher, even back then. ;)

Re: Early 28 roadster on ebay

Looks like the seller lowered the reserve before the deadline to do so.

If the high bidder is who I think he is there won't be much of a problem with the financial part of this deal.

Hi Neil,

Saw your post on the AA forum and figured you were looking for the ones for AA Fords.

If you need photos of the brackets for Model A's (same for AA's ??) then I have the ones from my...

Re: Possible discrepancy in Judging Standards

It is a late 1931 Deluxe Tudor. Bought it in 1978 and have most of the really hard to find parts.

Upholstery is my hang up now since I can't seem to find any really good mohair.

Re: $600 side bowl

Here are pics of my Zenith 3 carbs. They are pretty much restored to
RG&JS guidelines. Steve is right. Ford built them too thin.
