Re: 1931 Wide Bed Pickup Cowl band

As others have posted, cowl band should be body color. IIRC, originals are plain steel, not stainless. AFAIK, they are not reproduced in that metal and are hard to find.

Re: Failed Experiment

Henry Ford had the same attitude, “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

Re: Harbor Freight changes

I don't know how Harbor Freight tools compare to "professional" stuff as I'm a hobbyist/DIYer, not a professional. H-F stuff is fine for my needs (and those little blue flashlights they gave away...

You're welcome. Usually more general search terms get more results but it was specific in this case - "dropped stainless headlight bar for Model A with 32 grill shell". BTW, there may not be room...

Re: Rubelite Red

It's not firetruck red, more what I'd call burgundy. Several decades ago, the MAFCA magazine published a color chip, coincidentally about the time our pickup was ready for paint. Computer...

Re: Who has a pickup and fitted it with rear bumper bars

Is that an aftermarket cab and bed on your truck?

Re: Dispatch Pocket Wood

Seems it would be just as easy to mount correctly with 1/2-dozen rivets, but whatever.

Re: Australian 1932 Ford Type 304 Style Side Ute

Yep, although I'm not sure they'd qualify as "Coupe". The A is standard pickup except for cowl lights and stainless (rather than painted) trim like passenger cars - and of course the Deluxe box and...

Re: Australian 1932 Ford Type 304 Style Side Ute

The ultimate roadster pickup! :cool: IMHO, the 302 is better looking as it doesn't have the "window boxes" but the 304 looks better with them than without. They shouldn't be hard to make - even...

Re: if you could go back in time, what Model "A" parts would you bring back?

A plain old Model J (who'd want one of those? ;)) cost as much as $19,000. Modern paper money won't be any good in 1928-31. Probably best to take gold back with you. At the then-current statutory...

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

Maybe Henry could have afforded to build the T until his death, but could he have sold it? 1923 was the high water mark for the T. After that, production and price dropped every year as customers...

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

I've owned Model A but no non-Ford cars from that era, so I have no basis for comparison. But I have owned both Fords and MoPars from the late-30s. The ChryCo cars are better built.

What is this truck?

What can you folks tell me about this truck? It's obviously early-40s Ford stake-bed. But I don't recall hood vents like that or the V/8 stamped in the sheet metal rather than an applied badge.
