At least it will be easy to change that one!

We had Riversides on the Tudor. I loved those tires and the looks of them. Wish they made them for Model A's again I'd buy a set in a heartbeat.

The tires on the Model A that I recently brought home are perty old. A mix of Firestone Deluxe Champion Gum-Dipped tires and Sears ALLSTATE tires. I drove that first 25 miles of country road on them, worried that they'd burst at any point. But, it didn't happen.

I should have sent that set to you to use! Terry from the front end shop sold them off on the cheap to a guy with a '67 Malibu, he told him the story and to be careful, and the guy took them anyway!
Thanks, I've had that one a long time. Got it in 1978, the original owner got it new but his wife wanted a more "family friendly" car ( little one on the way in 78) so they got a little Toyoda wagon and sold the Mach 1. Often wondered if he wishes that they kept it
Big FE 427 motor (452 cid) 4 speed 4:11 in the back, it's fun, like the "A" fun but a different fun
