Default 1929 roadster pickup addition

New to me and first Model A I have owned so lots to learn. For the better part it is stock except for the 12 volt conversion and modern alternator which I do not like the looks of as well as pieces of modern wiring. It shares the garage with a 1932 Ford pickup that seems to be taking forever to finish. The 29 came with several boxes of original and reproduction parts. It appears that someone has done a restoration of it with lots of work. Just needs some tweaking but presentable and best of all, drivable in its current state. No plans to change it and enjoying it so far.

Thanks and educating myself about Model A’s and their differences. Truck came with boxes of parts both original and reproduction including a fan shroud that I found out is 28 only, which I may use.

Yes keep the shroud with the truck, that's what it was intended for and helps cooling if you have the engine pans too. If you get rid of it that's a big $$$ item for restorers of the Early Birds.

Research is showing that one of the differences between the 28 and 29 was outside door handles, mine has none, is that always the case ?
Never mind and found my answer after reading more on the barn. Fantastic site and really learning lots. Also really enjoying the pickup
