Re: 39 standard seat

And to add to that, the 39 did not have auxiliary seats so it had the top hinged backrest - apparently the seat in Krylon's coupe had been changed.

Re: Snow bird

There's plenty of collector car activity in Florida - probably has a lot to do with the year-round driving weather (if you have a good cooling system in the summer ;)). Anyway, I've done a lot of...

Re: Too funny

About $100 to my location. It's kinda neat garage art, but not $1,850 worth of neat.

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

I was in college in the midwest and didn't hear about Woodstock until sometime after it was all over. I did have 1-1/2 Model A at the time (the other half of the second one was owned by my Dad).

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

I had one of those. As I recall, getting those opening doors and hood to work was a bear - think I finally just glued them shut. I also had a 29 woody model (can't recall which company made the...

Re: Pinstriping

Wait, what?? 1/8" = 4/32" and it looks heavier than 5/32"? And a "little less" than 5/32" is pretty close to 4/32", i.e., 1/8". Does not compute!

Re: Push down ignition switch

Dang, beat me to it! :D

Assume that's your truck in your avatar - pretty sweet. Always liked the "square" cab 28 - 29.

Re: Push down ignition switch

Just to be clear, the original "pops-out" so you can start the car. You push it in when you stop. (And there's a whole lot more involved in starting and stopping. :D) Anyway, the switch you linked...

Re: Original Price?

So does that mean the spare might have been mismatched brand, tread, etc to the other four? Seems the dealer might not have had access to what the factory installed, so put on what was available.

Re: Free root beer floats

I was raised in a town of about 10,000. It had a Dog & Suds at one end and an A&W, a Dairy Queen, and a mom & pop root beer stand at the other. All but the DQ had car hops (not on roller skates...

Re: Original Price?

So if the base cost included a spare tire&tube but the car left the assembly line without them, when/where did the car acquire them? Did the dealer put them on?

Re: Free root beer floats

No Carl's Jr and nearest A&W is 1-1/2 hour away, so no free float for me. :(

When I was a kid, Mom made black cows with coke instead of root beer - pretty good that way too.

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

Factory pix? Otherwise, as you said, "Modern photos would be not as solid evidence as pictures from 1929."




What I'm saying is Ford intended the "brackets" as roadster top rests, not rumble...

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

If you mean tie downs for luggage or some such, I suppose they could be used for that, just as they could be used for rumble seat handles. But Ford intended them as top rests on roadsters, and only...

Re: Awesome chair invention that allows you to work on your car

I'd be happy if I could find just a roller seat with a back cushion.

Some of the comments on the linked page are hilarious.

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

And who's to say your car wasn't converted to rumble and the "handles" added sometime in the 90 years after it left the factory or, for that matter, in the 22 years it was on the road? So you want...

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

And I was just making the point that they were factory-installed ONLY on roadsters, both rumble and trunk, because Ford intended them as top rests, not handles. Again, owners, and probably dealers,...

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

No, because they're not handles. They're top rests to support the bows when the roadster top is folded down. They're also not on the cabriolet which has a rumble seat and a folding top standard. ...

Re: Value of a 1929 Model A Special Coupe driver

AFAIK, The Special Coupe did not have a rumble seat as standard equipment. One could be installed by the dealer or owner, or maybe by the factory on special order.




Well, here's a rumble...

Re: My '31 Pickup

Airlines have tightened restrictions on emotional support animals. Are you allowed to take your truck on flights? :D
