Re: 29 standard top install

FWIW, here's a link to the archive of Marco's old site wherein he did a Tudor roof:

Re: Bright 32 Radiator Shell?

Yeah, some DeLuxe AA had chrome bumpers and stainless radiator shell, headlights and taillights but the Service Car didn't. Anyway, thanks for the reply. I figured if anyone knew, you would - and...

Re: Bright 32 Radiator Shell?

Like I said, I've seen pix of a few but this is the one that triggered the question. It was posted on another forum and possibly is for sale. The owner said it was used by a fire department, then...

Question Bright 32 Radiator Shell?

I've seen a few pictures of passenger and commercial 32 Fords that appear to be original and have bright (stainless? chrome?) radiator shells. Was that a Ford option? Or just aftermarket?

Re: Vicky bracket ?????

Nope. The two rear braces go between the belt rail and the main bow and are bent on only the bow end. The side braces go between the rear door post (B-pillar) and the main bow and are bent only on...

Re: Trailer hitch

Given Mac's disclaimer, there's been quite a bit of debate in this thread over the sturdiness of their hitch. But if one actually reads the disclaimer, it says, "Since factory Model A's are very...

Re: Model A - 2 bucks

Guide, aka BLC, aftermarket replacements with the parking light on top. I think they also were OEM on some non-Ford trucks. They've been around since the 30s and became sealed beams at some point. ...

Re: What Is This Bolt For?

You guys just weren't looking in the right place. :D

Re: Which Car-Like Vehicles Can Tow a Model A?

Re: Women buy shoes: Guys buy toys[old Fords]

Dang, I gotta read the HAMB more! Very nice old hot rod. That 283/39 trans swap was pretty common "back in the day." I agree I wouldn't change a thing...well, maybe some flames on the hood. :D

Well, yes and no. The Model A did NOT have a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) as such. Per the Instruction Book:

The engine number is analogous to the VIN in that it identifies a particular...

Re: Help ID horns

Any markings on them? Bracket on one looks like Model A so I'd agree they're probably aftermarket replacements. $1K each is a little optimistic - maybe for the pair. :D

Yup. Many years ago before we knew this, we put a 30 body on an early frame - hood never did fit quite right.
