Default Re: Model A with T mods or Model T with A mods ??

Patrickt, The steering gear [RHD non adjust], handbrake, rear bumpers,radiator etc all appear '28 '29, hence my opinion not '30 '31.
Well, if not many Model T's or A's there, you now have both in one car!
It deserves to go back on the road, a piece of your local history.
Cheers

I'm going to say 26-27 T body, 28-29 chassis, 28-29 hood, local made fenders, running
boards, aprons and grill shell. 1935 Wheels and sealed beam headlights.

I like it. Keep it as it is

J Franklin & Tudortomnz & Dodge -
Thanks for all the very helpful information, and the final encouraging remarks ! In the end, for me anyway, it's all about the human experience.

Everyone -
Thanks as well for all the very helpful information! What I've learned from you guys has given me a better appreciation both for the "technical" aspects as well as personal, which are some important reasons for my enjoying the old car hobby. Talk to you all later, take it easy now !

When you remove the rear drums/hubs be sure you use a good puller, one that pulls from the snout of the hub. Without the proper tool you can destroy the axle ($$$). I think the one made by KR Wilson or a reproduction of it is the best although there are a couple of others that look good.
