          Every Model A owner should get some of these!

          I use them to decorate our parts showroom.

            Gustafson Ford in Kewanee, Illinois has large, framed factory photos of Model T-Model A- and early V-8 cars and trucks around the showroom. I love looking at them! The owner likes the old iron plus Fords from the muscle car era! Makes for a classy dealership.

                  Dipped parts. note the gloss on the fenders on the right. BTW that's the underside of the fenders.

                  Download the biggest file size to check the backgrounds and to identify the various small parts hanging between the fenders

                          Check the 1st batch for the chassis supported on axle housings !! The housings make great barbecue and tool supports.

                            Good eyes on that one. I had not noticed. I have some of those that I use for jack stands.

                                Time for a few more. You will need to overlook any duplicates, as I may forget which I have already shown. Here are some of the 20 million ford.

                                  I believe it is on loan to Ford. It will return to the Liimatainen's afterward.

                                  Dave Cella was a friend. He had heard rumors of the car but like everybody else wasn't sure of their veracity. I did get to see the car at the marc national in Dearborn in 2003.

                                I have never seen that one, but at the grand parade for my home town of Wallingford's 300 aniversary in 1970 the parade included the stainless steel model A tudor, and the stainless steel Tbird. I was driving a 30 phaeton, since my 40 tudor was overheating.

                                  Last time I was up at the River Rouge Tour in Dearborn (2016), Ford had the 20 Millionth Ford on display at the visitor's center at the Rouge. Quite a car.

                                  If you ever get the chance to go to Dearborn the River Rouge tour is a must. I never get tired of seeing that OR the Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, and the Dearborn Inn. We stayed at the Dearborn Inn several times and it is great! Neat Ford era factory photos on display throughout the building. You can buy the matte framed prints from Ford they have some pretty neat ones. Big, like 36"X 42" something like that. T's-A's-V-8's Lincolns from that era.

                                    Not really a Factory Photo but very interesting. Found this photo in a file from my Great Grandfather's Ford Dealership (Thompson Motor Co) in Goodland KS. Apparently the dealership hosted a commerical caravan that was traveling through the country. I guess the Panel was painted with samples of the colors available at the time

                                        I have lots of factory photos, but have no way of determining what plant they represent.

                                          I like that #3 picture above showing the body getting lowered onto the chassis. Here is a similar pic with some minor differences.

                                            I like the fender covers. Notice how the pop out switch cable is hanging, making it necessary to screw the distributor on to the cable before installing the distributor. Also the speedometer cable and the wire loom from the terminal box to the starter and generator are hung out of the way. The next car in line looks like my father's roadster.

                                              I was looking at those fender covers. That is one of the slight differences I noticed compared to your photo.

                                            I see how the hard tops were lifted and lowered onto the frame, how were the roadsters put on the frame? Lifted differently or put on by hand? I see in the last photo the roadster body is already on the frame but behind the hardtop.

                                              For those of you who edit your photos; What program do you use?
                                              I don't have the bucks for Photoshop, or any of the others, and I find Microsoft Publisher to be too cumbersome.

                                              What I mean is, basically, like adding text, arrows etc. to explain sections within photos.

                                              Yesterday, my wife and I were helping her parents move and we found an old box in the attic of her grandpa's photos. We have no idea whatever happened to the car or when exactly these pictures were taken, but I thought I would share with the group. We do know though that this was his first car as it was written on the back of the photos. We are going to have the originals blown up and made into...

                                              Caster / Camber spec
                                              by Mitch
                                              Does anyone have documentation in black and white stating what the caster / camber specs were when the A rolled off the assembly line. I know the numbers being floated out there today but i am looking for concrete proof of what the specs were back then. Even an old 30's style shop manual may show something
                                              If someone has an old reference book can you post it up here with pics.
