Re: 1930 Standard Roadster

Thank you for letting me know. It is hard to do some things here in Mexico when there are not other cars, or knowledgeable Model A enthusiasts around.

Re: Model A Huckster Group

As a side note, Martin-Parry painted most of their vehicles green, or red.

Re: Model A Huckster Group

I agree, it looks like a Martin-Parry, and if so was built near the same time as the chassis, not some years later. Martin-Parry would buy chassis from Ford and put their bodies on them.

Re: Matching Paint Colors

Thanks Mike and 2many cars. That was the information that I needed. Sounds like the Prophet® II Colour Analyser is portable and should work.

Re: 1928 -29 Radiator Cap

My guess is that it was purchased from a very reputable dealer, as that is all I ever use. I think I will order another one, and also try screwing on an original once I get back "home".

1928 -29 Radiator Cap

My radiator cap does not tighten down on the radiator threads. Is this a problem with reproduction radiator caps? Anyone else experience this problem
