Re: DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

1966 IH came with spare rim, no tire. MANY early trucks I've seen had rim under truck and no tire ever added.

Re: Henry Fords Pay Scale

It all comes down to "what's it worth to you?" I spent 20 years in "this man's Navy (USN)" and it was paternalistic. Base pay, housing allowance, food allowance, flight pay, free medical and dental...
