I was doing some research and found this pic in the Seattle Times dated April 29, 1928. Sorry, It's not the best picture .In my thinking it's probably the first AA Ford to be delivered in Seattle.

Steamships and AA's... does it get any better?

Let's try to figure out which "East Indian" this is, shall we?

Thanks, Don

One M.S. "East Indian" sank in 1942. Could this be "her?"

The East Indian was a Ford owned boat, it was bought in 1925 for $80,000 and was coal fired, but underwent conversion to diesel. This boat made several trips overseas and to various assembly plants stateside. It did sink in 1942. (This came from "Rouge pictured in it's prime by Ford Bryan. A most excellent book)

The first photo shows the East Indian unloading Model T's in the 1920's.

Thanks, Luke! But please change "boat" to "vessel?"

Default Ford Model A bus in service at Lourdes, France

Here is a good looking Ford Model A bus in service at Lourdes, France. Such buses were used to haul pilgrims, to get healed, at the grotto in Lourdes.

Any of you fordbarners have a pix of what I believe to be an austrailian model a "panel" truck.... it looks like a tudor model with no rear seat and a door on the rear... I have seen pictures but have CRS and don't recall where. Would appreciate any pix, info, love to convert a tudor to one, looks like just the rear door is different! thanks bobbycoke

In this thread, check posts 150 and 158 for two German versions, and 125 for a great New Zealand catalogue. Have yet to see an Australian original. Anyone?

Australia only built Tudors in 28/29, so no 30/31 style deliveries would have been built. Here is a lovely period photo of one of their 1930 Panel Deliveries.

Model A's don't leak oil they just mark their territory.

Bick and Brad... No offense, but I think that a Tudor Delivery was separate and distinct from a Panel Delivery?

OK, which one of you moved the horn? Or did you just erase the horn, Brad?
Good sense of humor.
