Re: mice prevention?

I'm not a cat guy, don't hate them but don't love them either. They work pretty well for mouse control, but even outside/barn cats require at least minimal care. Seems to be trading one animal...

Re: Leg room question

There is a a service bulletin that explains how to shorten the package tray, but I think it only gains about 2" and dunno if it applies to all years. Anyway, 30-31 coupes have seat adjusters - dunno...

Re: a 400 on BAT went for 22k

I may as well as jump in re the aesthetic and I'm ambivalent about it. IMHO, the 400-A with the top up is beautiful - with the top down, it's butt-ugly.

Re: a 400 on BAT went for 22k

I don't mean to sound flippant but the above pretty much boils down to caveat emptor. I agree if one isn't qualified to assess a car, they should consult someone who is. But it needs to be...

Re: a 400 on BAT went for 22k

Well since you asked, this may not answer the question but it is an opinion.

Your critique of the car seems to involve two issues, safety/reliability versus authenticity that doesn't affect the...

Re: Jailbar Ranch

Yes, it had the fold-down basin, a fold-down bed, a storage chest, and a water tank in the roof (you can see the bottom of it above the chest). The screens in the back windows were about like...

Re: Jailbar Ranch

That car is well-known, at least among Model A'ers. It was used in the 30s for mail delivery in Montana, hence the tractor tires for plowing through snow. Not sure a convertible was the best choice...

Re: Jailbar Ranch

I was thinking the same concept on a jail bar but yeah, a Model A would be cool. The Special Delivery was an offshoot of the Station Wagon and was produced for only one year (1931) by Ford. Or you...

Thanks. Your lifetime of woodworking really shows in that truck, not to mention the usual mechanical, etc restoration work - I envy your skill. For your next project, maybe a two-door panel like a...

Re: Jailbar Ranch

Nice collection! I used to think anything after 1940 is "too new" but they're growing on me. I didn't know Ford made a jail-bar-based woodie. Or is it a post-production modification?

Re: What antique cars are these? Not Model A

Yup. You can see just the edge of the fourth porthole in the OP pic but it's there.

Re: 1928 ford C-Max For sale / Facebook

Could be a Standard/Special Coupe with the top cut off but I think it's the remains of a Sport/Business Coupe - definitely not a Cabriolet as it has the coupe pillar.

Re: TT express tailgate?

Also check on the A forum - I'm not real familiar with AA but it could be for an Express of that model. There is some carryover from TT to AA, so it may be correct for both.

AFAIK, all Model A wheels, with the exception of a few DeLuxe models, were black from the factory. No doubt dealers, and maybe factory on special order, would paint them different color at extra...

Re: Headlight Question

In answer to the bolded, a few models came with standard cowl lights but most didn't. They could be dealer-installed (and I think factory-installed on special order) as an extra-cost option.
