Re: Open car arm rest

It's just a piece of fabric hemmed around the edge with a couple snaps in the corners and maybe a sewn-in backing. I'd think any local upholstery shop could whip one up.

Re: fenders

Also 30-31 coupe, roadster, and cabriolet fenders are the same as non-wide bed pickup (except for tail light and rumble seat step holes) - wide bed fenders are unique.

Re: short model a film

At least we know a bonnet is a woman's hat, a boot is a man's shoe, a dicky is, well, not a seat, and a saloon is where we drink our cold beer. :D

BTW, the red car on your Model A tire page is a...

Re: '33-'34 vs '35-'36 bumpers

I have nothing to add to the bumper discussion but that Koln 4-door is a good-looking car - reminiscent of the Model A "Blind Back" Fordor.

Re: Preservation vs Restoration

As has been pointed out in this thread, "original" means different things to different people. I agree it means what came out of the factory but my definition ends there. Seat upholstery with a...

Re: Preservation vs Restoration

From a dollars and cents viewpoint, the car you describe likely would bring more money restored, although it might not make a profit or even recover investment. I understand the "it's only original...

Re: 1935 Ford coupe heater

I believe some Tropic Aire heaters (probably the "deluxe" models) were originally chromed. Here are three currently on eBay - the chrome looks old and the nameplate is riveted over it. I suppose...

Re: 4 for a road trip in a roadster pickup! Sure!

In the late-60s, I'd haul a few buddies around in the bed of my truck, also a 30 CCPU and also in Illinois. Never got stopped but it was a small town in an agricultural community so pickup bed...

Re: 4 for a road trip in a roadster pickup! Sure!

It was the hood ornament on the Mack-R driven by Martin "Rubber Duck" Penwald (Kris Kristofferson) in Convoy (1978).

Re: 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Ute

The Service Car is the AA version of the Deluxe Pickup. The beds on both resemble that of a ute. However, they are bolted to the cab, not integral with it like the ute. Also, the cabs are standard...

Re: Matching photos, I think.....

Back in the 60's, I saw a taxi at a show. The owner's story was it had never been in taxi service but was purchased new by a guy who loved cigars. His wife couldn't stand the smoke so she rode in...

Re: Matching photos, I think.....

I'm confused - are you saying the taxi does not have the protruding A pillar? For whatever reason (camera angle?), it doesn't show in the pic you posted. But another view of the same car shows it...

Re: Anyone fit toolboxes to the Pickups?
