If you have a way to look past the baffles I would check it out further. The other options would be to put some gas in and slosh it around in every direction to see if any rust particles show up. ...

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Here is what was left of the original color on the tank and inside of the cowl. Dad pulled the pickup out of pasture in the late 1960's so I cannot say it was the factory applied paint.

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Bob,


I had read that before too, so I figured it was built on the later frame with 1929 sheet metal.

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Chris,


When I looked up the frame number the engine was manufactured in OCT 28 1929, but the frame has the later 1930 cross member so I was figuring a December build, but it could be November? ...

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Chris,


From the frame number it is a late - probably December 1929. It has the 1930 front cross member and 2 tooth steering gear. Fenders and radiator/shroud 1929.

I know this is an old thread, but is there a way to read these articles about RPU's online or just run across some one's old magazine collection?

Re: rootlieb hood quality

I can fix the hood, it will take probably 30 hours labor, which would equal more than the cost of a Rootlieb hood.

Re: Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

Re: Top bow irons difference in 29 and 30 Roadster Pickup

I measured the width at the back and it is 51 inches on the top irons. The width of the tub where the top irons attach is 51 inches so I am thinking it should be for a 28-29 roadster pickup.
