  • 28-29 CCPU Mirrors on windshield posts

    Asked this question over at brand X and really got no satisfactory answers. My '29 CCPU cab was built from various pieces. It was originally a homemade C cab and I bought doors and extended cab corners, etc. The mirrors on both sides are bolted to the windshield posts just below the visor mounts as opposed to hinge mounts. Can someone tell me if I have an A or AA cowel?

      A and AA cab are the same. The hinge mount was used on the 1930-31 82-B cab not the 1928-E30 82-A cab.

        Mirror above the hinge is an earlier cowl. Don't have JS in front of me right now so can not provide a time frame of change. Rod
        Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

            Hi, By looking at your hinges and your door it appears that you have a Pickup/Truck Cowl. They used the same cab on "A" Pickups & "AA's". The only mirror on A's & AA's was on the outside on the drivers side.

              I'd like to see more pics of your pickup and what you have done with it. Looks like a fun pickup.

              Open Cab UPPER Windshield Assembly
              by Steve Plucker
              This question concerns the 76-A UPPER Windshield Frame Assembly, A-37111.

              I have been told that there are 3 UPPER assemblies for the Open Cab windshield frames used from 1928 thru June/July 1930.

              Can anyone expand on this and if so can you post photos of each?

              Thanks.

              1929 CCPU/AA truck windshield frames
              by wrndln
              There are several of us 29 CCPU owners (Dan Partain, Dudley Moordigian, a fellow in our local Twin Cities model A club and me) that are trying to figure out what the correct windshield type should be for April 29 and mid 29 pickup windshield frames. Our CCPU's have been messed with over the years, so we are not sure if the windshield frames on our pickups are correct. All of us know that 1928 CCPU...

              I posted this on ********, but of course I have gotten no responses like usual or any useful ones. I am not sure I have posted this message on the correct section, but I see no regular message section. Thus is the first post on this forum, so please forgive me for possibly posting on an incorrect section.

              Open Cab Windshield Stanchin bolts...
              by Steve Plucker
              Were the four (4) bolts (screws) that attach the Windshield Stanchins to the body (two (2) each side) on a 1928 Open Cab Pickup, "body" color or were they Nickel plated?

              Thanks.

              Windshield Hinge Disassembly
              by CSPIDY
              In preparation to repaint the windshield before installing.
              I would like to separate the windshield from the header bracket. (Hinge)
              it looks like they simply slide apart but was wondering if there are any precautions that I should be aware of.
              I was unable to find any mention in Les Andrews books, and
              did a search here with no results but I’m not real savvy in the search...

              Windshield openings?
              by DaWizard
              I have been sitting here wondering just how many always run with the windshield open and how wide and for what reason?

              I will start by saying up until a few days ago, I ran mine closed and put up with the reflection of the rear lights and stuff. But since it has been 95° plus the last few days I cracked it open about 1½in., we'll see how that works.

              "In the photo are two top sections of an Open Car/Pickup windshield.

              The top section is from a 1928 Open Cab Pickup. Just below that is from an unknown vehicle more than likely Model A or even a Model T...I do not know.

              Another goofy question - Windshield
              by dmdeaton
              Took the roadster out Saturday and tipped the windshield open to get some air. Kept vibrating back closed. I didn't strong arm the thumb screws till I asked you guys??

              Installing windshield
              by JohnB15632
              Try as I might, I can not get the Windshield to close. It hits against the filler strip.
              I am beginning to think that I have the wrong windshield for my 31 SW 4D TS.

              I have a windshield which is original. I measured the heights in the center of the window and the one installed is almost 1/4" bigger. This different in heights is what is leading me to think that this windshield...

              Windshield hitting Stanchion
              by Beauford
              I put my mirrors on the top screw hole of stanchions on my '29 RPU and now the windshield wants to hit towards the bottom of stanchion on drivers side. I have loosened here and there tightened with not being able to center windshield. It worked fine with just the bottom screws in. To attach stanchions on a Brookville body you use a one piece backing plate with two threaded holes that sits behind where...
