  • 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.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      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.

              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.

              Need Help -Looking for '28 Phaeton Front Bow
              by 28PhaetonRoy
              Hello all:
              My first post to the forum.

              I ordered a long-overdue top from LeBarron Bonney at Hershey this year, and in getting ready for having the install done, I found about 4" of the driver-side bow all but broken off near the bolt joint of my 28 Phaeton.To compound this, the bow is filled with something like chalk instead of wood. So when I pulled the staples out of the...

              Inherited a 1926 Roadster, need some help
              by MontanaRed
              Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and frankly new to model t's but I was fortunate to inherit what I believe to be a 1926 roadster. I have checked the serial number on the engine and its seems to match what I was told. It also appears to have a Ruckstell rear end. I am excited to get it working order. I am looking forward to learning more from you all and this will be my first ever project. One area...

              Help identify
              by Dano
              Hi guys, My first time here. I found this rusty old car on my property in Maine, can't figure out what it is, my brother knows more than I do, says it's maybe a 1935 Ford, can't tell if it is a car or truck, no marques logos etc. Has a large boulder on the hood, so I can't move it. Just curious if anyone can identify it, it will not likely ever be moved....

              Some Interior Pictures of an Original 1929 Town Sedan
              by Tom Wesenberg
              This nice original 1929 Town Sedan showed up at our annual swap and car show a couple years ago.
              It sure is nice when people have enough sense to keep a nice original car original, instead of thinking they are improving it by restoring it....
