Re: Another interior question....please help

I bought my interior set from Cartouche. They include those panels and refer to them as "hip panels". They are similar to the kick panels. I have them in storage right now, so don't have the...

Re: Follow-Up Model A Upholstery Mystery

Re: Follow-Up Model A Upholstery Mystery

Farmerdick,
I was watching your post, also hoping that someone would post some photos. I'm enclosing the pictures I took of my 31 Deluxe Roadster disassembly. You can see that it's not original,...

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?

37 Coupe, I don't know if she had the original engine or any other history of it. It doesn't have the original engine now, as my dad replaced it with a rebuilt one at some point. The car had been in...

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?

When I was a kid in the 70s, a lady on our block drove a 31 Deluxe Roadster every day during the summer. I don't know how she got around in the winter, as I don't remember her having any other cars...

Re: Stanchion post and windshield-1931 Delux Roadster

On my 31 Deluxe, the liners were spot welded in, top and bottom. I assume they are original.

Re: Stainless buffing question
