  • Open Cab vs. Closed Cab Pick-up production numbers...

    As far as I know, this is one of the greatest "unknowns" in the Model A/AA Ford production.

    To my knowledge, there is no records which tells us X amount were Open Cabs and X amount were Closed Cabs...I wish there were...believe me it would make Part 2 of my second book much easier
    to do.

    Does anybody on the VFF know if there is any data on this?

    I have some conflicting numbers all over the place from a few well-known Model A Ford books but nothing definate...most are just speculation numbers.

    I am trying to present this information in a slightly different way but it still does not give any deffinate answers.

    Oh how I would like to take a trip the the Ford Archives on this matter.

    If anyone has any ideas and would like to communicate with me, please do so at [email protected]

      I have asked this question before but thought I would ask again...



      Has anyone or know of anyone who has done research on trying to determine the production numbers of the Open and Closed Cab Pickups?



      This is one of the big unknowns in Model A history.



      Thanks.

      Mid 28 thru Mid 1930 Open Cab question...
      by Steve Plucker
      Contained in the Indianapolis Service Letter of May 25, 1928 was the following statement about the 1928 Open Cab body: "The Open Cab is now interchangable on the "A" and "AA" chassis".

      Besides "spliting" the Open Cab body and the Pickup body into two seperate units or body styles...Just what else did Ford do to the Open Cab body to make it "interchangable"...

      Pickup Subrails
      by L Jones
      I am needing subrails for a late 31 Bud closed cab pickup.
      Does the Bud cab use the same subrails as the other 30-31 closed cabs.
      The vendors do not show any subrails for a 30-31 cab, they say to cut down tudor sedan subrails, what is involved in cutting down the subrails and how do they fit compared to the original subrails.
      Is anyone making 30-31 closed cab subrails, or planning...

      28-30 Open Cab Body
      by Dan Partain
      I'm posting this photo for Steve Plucker.

      This photo is of the "B" pillar of the Open Cab.

      Here you see two upholstery tacks on the wood.

      I think there were originally actually four...I do not know.

      Anyway, see if someone could post the same photo of a restored Open Cab showing this area.

      And also showing the difference between...
