  • 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.

              The 1930 Deluxe Tudor Sedan
              by Steve Plucker
              According to the Assembly Type Records for 1930, there were only 364 Deluxe Tudor Sedans that were assembled at The Rouge in Dearborn. and 71 in Canada.

              Over the years since, I think many 1930 Standard Tudors have been converted to a Deluxe.

              That being the case...How can one tell an original assembled 1930 Deluxe Tudor from one that was a 1930 Standard Tudor and converted...

              My 30 pickup was restored a number of years ago and a light coloured cloth headliner was installed. Was this an option in the 30pu?...

              1950/51 wagons with Country Squire (woody) trim
              by C. D. P.
              It has been said that these were "made" @ Ford's Iron Mountain facility in Michigan's upper peninsula, then shipped to Detroit where these now-woody bodies were mounted on a rolling chassis. My question is:

              - were the wagon bodies really fabricated @ Iron Mountain, or

              - were they fabricated in Detroit then shipped upstate just to have the panels affixed (seems...
