  • Model A assembly plant in Parkersburg WV

    Has anybody ever heard that there was a assembly plant in WV? My dad told me that the now, Warner Kia, is where they used to mate the bodies with the chassis. The rolling chassis would come in on railcar & they would finish assembly at the Warner building. He also said he actually found a leftover stash of parts many many years ago there when he helped with some remodeling when it was a Pontiac dealership

      Somewhere there is supposed to be some photos of the building back when it was used & a lineup of finished cars outside. I have put the word out that I’m in need of those photos.

        Ok, Sherman Dils has a dealership in Parkersburg. Cars that we’re ordered arrived incomplete by railcar. The rolling chassis was transported a short distance & they completed the assembly process at the former Warner Pontiac location. That’s still pretty cool

            by Steve Plucker
            Has anyone ever noticed on the Model T BODY floor cross sill (front) any type of letter and numbers representing assembly plant codes?

            For instance SFA 0927 for San Francisco Assembly plant or AS 12345 for Seattle Assembly plant.

            These codes are on a majority of Model A's...was wondering about the Model T's.

            Thanks. Pluck

            It has been awhile since I got some Assembly Plant and/or Dealership Bill of Sale records to incorporate into my data bases.

            Does anyone have any to add to the data bases?

            The neat thing about these records is that if enough are collected and put into the correct assembly plant data, one can come perty close in finding out just when a particular car came off the assembly...

            Does anyone know of any publication that describes the workings of a four-story Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant?

            Does anyone have a photo of the Mexico City Assembly Plant (Before 1928) that assembled the Model T Ford?

            Would any photos of assembly plants be in the Model T era books of Ford Industries?

            If so, please email me at [email protected]

            Thanks.

            Have you folks with Model T's ever seen on the body's sub cross frame, letters and numbers representing the assembly plant for which the Model T was assembled and the number of that body style?

            This is common in a lot of Model A's...Just wondering about the Model T's.

            For instance in the Model A: "SFA 3349"...San Francisco (SFA) 3349 (number of specific body style...

            I located a stamping at the cross member where the drivers left heel would be on my 1931 Tudor standard, (it has an indented firewall). There are no letters, just a number 11336. What would that represent?

            I just found the assembly plant code for my early 1931 Tudor. It was under a thick coat of paint and the letters and numbers were larger than I had expected. There is also another X which I wasn't expecting. I wonder if it is related to the x on the frame number. The code is: AX STL 14511

            Was the St. Louis assembly plant that assembled Model A cars, the same one that originally built...
