Re: Greco Model A

After a closer look it has WW2 jeep combat wheels. Maybe it was easier to come by 16 inch tires sometime in its life.

Re: Wind Wings 31 Roadster [fell off]

Re: Mikes model A ford parts

I've done business with Mike's for 7 or 8 years and have never been disappointed in service or quality. I can say that about some of the others.

Re: Transmission Issues

Not on a Model A but on a truck I once had, the pilot bearing was bad and caused a drag on the pilot shaft of the transmission. This truck had a ball bearing pilot bearing. Just a thought.

Re: Colonel Sanders

I'm almost sure I remember seeing a Real McCoy's show with the Mexican hired hand driving a 28 or 29 phaeton. The one shown here is a 1931 I think. Must have had to up date somewhere in the show.
