Re: Factory Ford down draft intake, German?

(For Jim: The Russian 'jeep' you're referring to is the GAZ 67B built from '43 to '53 which did in fact use a downdraft carb. on a Model B engine. It was replaced by the GAZ 69 then UAZ 69 up into...

Re: Are these Model A swing arms?

Thanks guys for the replies. Always seems to happen when acquiring boxes of parts for old vehicles, regardless of the make....something 'foreign' ends up in the mix that is old, but totally unknown....

Are these Model A swing arms?

I've been rearranging and cleaning up my garage so I can move around and work again. I found these windshield 'swing arms' I forgot I had. Being a 'flatfender' jeep guy, I know they are NOT for the...

Re: 1928 roadster pickup cab assembly pictures

I have been following this thread intently since I have a '29 RPU with no back cab parts or pieces. It only has the front cowl/pillar bolted on, so I have no idea what I need for the back part of the...

Re: Is this Model A or Model T?

Mike, I tried emailing you, but it came back as a 'failure' notice. I only have this one sill plate though.

Re: hubcap oddities?

I would think at that time, original hubcaps would be plentiful and not expensive, so no need to create a market for 'knock-offs'....but what do I know...lol. In the jeep world, cosmetic replacement...

Re: Is this Model A or Model T?

Thank you. Is this for all versions of the A, or just particular body types?

Re: hubcap oddities?

Thank you from 'Down Under' mates. These are old and rusty as you can see, so when do you think these were made ? Why would they have been made at all when the A's weren't 'antique' at the time, just...

Is this Model A or Model T?

I have this pressed metal plate with Ford script that measures 8"L x 2"W and have no idea what it is or for. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

hubcap oddities?

While rummaging through my Model A parts, I came across these 'strange' (to me being new to A's) hubcaps. I have provided pics, but haven't been able to find anything online. The larger cap says...

Re: running board length

Thanks John. Now I need to find original running boards to fix up, same with rear fenders. As for your GPW...I had 3 '42 Script GPW project jeeps years ago. Around here, most everything I found was...

Re: running board length

Thanks Mike. I'd like to find used ones that may need some work, that's why I asked about length. I'm a 'fix-it' type guy and have rebuilt/restored numerous flat fender jeeps, but now am trying to...

running board length

Hello all,
I'm fairly new and have posted in the 'want' section for various body metal. I've seen used running boards advertised by several people, but the lengths vary. My project is a '29 roadster...

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

I prefer the 'older' look of the 28/29's. The larger tires, rounded cowl and 'form fitting' front fenders always appealed to me.

body parts

My project '29 roadster pick-up "Bessie' is in need of clothing...lol. Rather than 'new' material, I'd prefer she dresses in previously worn metal. She needs:

both aprons
both running boards...

Re: Shocks for a Model A 1930 pickup

Glad you brought this topic up oldford59. My 29 roadster p/u project didn't come with any shocks, so I'm in a similiar situation. Looked at prices of new original style...yikes! Finding used ones...

Re: windshield frame size

Then these are correct. Just the mounting area is 'buggered'. I'll do some cleaning of the area and fix some welds previously done when spring temps make it up this way...lol. No heat in my garage to...

Re: windshield frame size

Took some more pics of what I have....from what I've researched, the '29 roadster pick-up had solid stanchions with no 2nd pivot at the bottom...? The later ones did...perhaps?

Definitely not what I've got. I'll take off one of the stanchions and post some pics in a few days. Thank you for the pic Bob C.

Re: windshield frame size

Thanks Ray, I was wondering about that also. It looked correct with the other cowel 'lines' and is 'square' to the edges so I fgured it was right. The third pic in my initial post shows the inside of...

Re: windshield frame size

Good point jerbo. They were the ones that came with all the extra parts, so I just put them on...never even thought they might be different. None of my research showed any difference in OEM stanchion...

Re: windshield frame size

Thanks 'rotorwrench', I just checked the link you provided! Wow, big difference in the prices I've seen from the 'A' vendors. Looks like it's what I need, plus free shipping.

Yes, thank you. Notice my measurements. The long distance is measured on the top bar, the short distance I measured across the bottom at the curved part. Has anyone ever altered a wider frame to make...
