Default Re: model a spare wheels

Most factory mounted fender spares were on the driver's side. Ford did make, and install passenger side fender spares as well; usually upon customer request. The Ford Dealers also installed the fender / bracket / spare on the passenger side as well - also at customer request.

Many fleet trucks had a need for the spare to be mounted on the passenger side instead of the drivers side; so Ford accommodated these customers. Also the fender-mounted spares could be ordered on BOTH sides of the car (Dual Sidemounts).

Additionally, there were outside 'after-market' suppliers that also made side-mounted (both left and right) fenders for the Model A. So it is not at all unusual to find a pickup, or even a car chassis, with the spare tire mounted on the passenger side fender.
