  • Original luggage rack 1930 deluxe roadster?

    On a 1930 deluxe roadster I recently purchased it has a chrome luggage rack that I thought was an 70's or '80's repo, but it has the wood grain painted strips on the rear as the oringinals were. Most re-pop racks have real wood strips. My question is how do I tell an original rack from an newer reproduction rack? Any one have pictures of an original rack? Thanks Steve

    Hey Volleyman, WELCOME to the VFF!!

    We need pictures of the top, bottom, and sides to tell which it is.

    Just how long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you are on!

      Welcome to the VFF.
      As Wiz stated, pictures would be great. Lucky you, to have the original style painted slates.

            That's just the sign of a good woodgrainer.

              1930 A
              Good afternoon. I'm new to the group. I'll admit that I'm new to Model A's and early Fords. Will a 1930 hood fit any of the other Model A's? Thanks in advance.
