Re: 1928 Phaeton curtain pan hinges.

Bick
Took me awhile to get to the garage. My hinges donít look like the ones shown by others on this thread. The car was restored around 1955, so th hinges may not be original.

Re: 1928 Phaeton curtain pan hinges.

Hi Bick
I have a September 22 firewall stamp and my 28 has the under-floor pan. I will get to my garage tomorrow and take photos. Do you want anything besides hinges?

Re: Need Help -Front Irons & Bow for 28 Mod A Phaeton

I think I found the above universal top bow set at Mike's. I guess a question I have is - Is the header piece across the front the same for a Roadster as a Phaeton?

Re: Need Help -Front Irons & Bow for 28 Mod A Phaeton
