    Not much early ford stuff at Cessnock swap last weekend.

    A reasonably good (for over here) T tudor body for $2200 AUD.

    Just a few Model A wheels and various small bits, nothing too exciting.

    Was an older restored 53 chev 4 door sedan on full rego for $13K, if you like that brand. if it was a 53 Ford in the same conditon, they would have been asking $50K.

    The guy who owns this T may be cleaning out your stock of T coupes!!!!

    He says he has 6 coupe bodies ready to ship over here.

    Hey Keith, where ever it has to go to keep it off the scrap heap is fine with me, as long as it doesn't get cremated.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Here is an interesting site on Fords. The link will take you to photos of A’s in the era, but there is a lot of other good information there as well.

      Not sure what the back of this ute is.

      Not a Geelong ute.

      Probably a one off farmer's build.

      Canadian deluxe folding stanchions for a 28/29.

      A feral 34 or 33 (I don't know the difference) chopped ute.

      Dunno what body style it started life as, but it looked a treat driving in.

      The driver...

      1930 AA Hearse For Sale
      by don3527
      I have decided to part with our 1930 hearse. Appears to be all original and never been torn apart. Some of the hub caps are missing but otherwise is a very complete. Runs and drives fine but the ring gear does have some bad teeth on it. This is the unrestored hearse that was featured in the July-August 2018 issue of the Model A News. I was going to restore the car but have decided I have too many...

      Even tho the A was obsolete by 5 years when it was first built, it still looks ultra modern beside the green 28 chev .

      A farmer's fix.

      To any English Model A'ers..

      I know there are a few who frequent this site.

      Are any of you in a position to see if it was recorded in any English newspapers about the Introduction of the Model A Ford on December 2, 1927?

      My information has that Ford has sent to England assembled cars for the showing and I would like to know just what body styles were represented...

      by pooch
      I started with this. more to come...

      I only wanted the cowl, as I was going to build extended doors, but the door hinge screws were rusted on so I gave the guy another $100 , and I was glad I did when I got around to building it.

      Scored an already boxed A chassis and a few more bits

      HR holden independent front end with discs.

      Ford Garage Restaurants
      by carolinamudwalker
      FL. has 12 of these neat restaurants We had lunch in Lakeland. They had 25 beers on tap and no I did not try all of them. The napkin holders disappear but they order new ones a thousand at a time. The elevated A would start up, give a puff of smoke and sound the horn every 15-20 minutes. NEAT PLACE

      by Brad in Maryland
      I'm looking for a Model A themed face mask.....anyone know of any good ones and where I can purchase them?

      Here are a couple I've found online (click on the image for the source):

      ....or how about a VFF face mask using the VFF logo square in the middle of the mask?
