Re: Model A Town Car?

Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

All 4 years are great. Even Will Rodgers admitted he never met a Model A he didn't like.

Re: Tough Old Ford

I have no doubt the whole works can take off and go down the road, but stopping that train using Model A brakes even in good condition from a rolling speed of 50 mph is a disaster waiting to happen.

All the vehicles referenced in this thread are delivery vehicles, but would it not be correct to state none of them are sedan deliveries?

nomadpsd, did you use the Ford Engineering prints to construct the components, or did you reverse Engineer the parts by measuring them?

Let's not forget using a diode instead of a coil assembly in the cutout switch mounted on the generator. Henry Ford would definitely approve of that improvement.

Re: Bring a Trailer Auction results 1928 Sport Coupe

Just because an auction site states a car sold for a certain price, that doesn't mean the car sold for that price or in realty even sold at all.


Happens all the time.
