        Very interesting read, a wealth of information directly from the post office department archives. Mainly covers the 31 100 c.f. Bodies but covers areas of both a and aa. Great book a must have to complete your A library. If you get lucky you can find occasionally signed first run....

          Pickup truck book
          by Great Lakes Greg
          Is there a good book for explaining the '30-'31 truck differences, like when steel tops came along, etc? The standards cover some things, but I would like something more detailed. I have the DeAngelis book, but I suspect there has been a lot more learned since then.

          Instruction books
          by Chuck Sea/Tac
          I was given a late 31 instruction book last night, found in an old truck. Also a 23 Buick book. I’m pretty certain it’s original, but can’t find a link to anything that describes the differences between repro and original.
          it appears Vince falters site is down, or at least inaccessible to me. Is there a way to tell with only one book,ie: without comparison. Thanks.

          Free book: Model A Ford Construction, Operation, Repair, by Victor Pagé
          by alexiskai
          Mitch has been giving away books, so I thought I'd do my part. This is a 1992 reprint of a 1929 guide for mechanically-minded owners of the new Model A. It's based on the 1928 cars, so not all the info is correct for later cars, but it's a fun read to see how the car was talked about and see what they expected owners to do.

          Free, shipped US domestic book rate on my dime.
