  • Looking for someone with an Unrestored '29 Murray Town Sedan

    I am working on a 1929 Murray body Town Sedan that I received as a complete basket case. Getting ready to do the interior and would like to find someone with an Unrestored one that would be willing to take a bunch of digital interior photos. I am willing to send a camera chip for the photos.
    Thanks, Ed

    Saturday afternoon,
    Thanks folks for the replys. From the looks of it I need to provide some more info.
    I am building a Touring car, not a fine points car.

    Some of the specific info I am looking for is:
    Routing and attachment of the electric wiper wire on the header.
    How the upholstery meets at the top and bottom of the door posts.
    Whats seals the gap between the bottom of the door and the body.
    How the upholstery meets up with the dash rail and the window garnish.
    How the carpet meets up with the rear seat.

    These are the iteams that come to mind at this moment.
    After 50+ years I have figured out that I am a visual learner.
    Thanks again, Ed

      Hey EdW, WELCOME to the VFF!!

      Sorry, but we don't have a '29 Murray in our group, or I would be glad to take all the pictures you need. I will keep my eyes open up here in Dizzyland for ya. Maybe Dennis in the OC chapter has a member with one for ya.
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          If Mark did it, it is accurate, you can count on that

        We have them in our club, but I'm not sure of what you are looking for. Will this be for judging? How correct do you need for it to be?

          by Oregon guy
          The car must have been owned by a very short person prior to the guy I bought the car from. All the front seat adjustment hardware was removed and replaced with a 2 X 4. I want to restore the seat to original. My need is to communicate with someone who has the same year/model. The only printed info found so far is shown on page 78,79 & 80 in volume 3, "How to Restore Your Model A" Book....

          by toshik
          Could someone please clarify - Wiki clearly says: "top-of-the-line Town Car", however based on "model A Ford restoration handbook" the best equipped one would be "Town Sedan". The book shows best interior and electrical options for Town Sedan, also it has the third row of windows in the rear. Town Car has an opened front seats with canopy. Once again I'm talking about...

          Hello everyone, my name is Claudio, I write from Avellaneda, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
          After 28 years of being stored in a garage, I started to restore it

          I bought the car in May 1993; in the countryside, in the middle of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina; they were using it as a chicken coop.

          From what you can find out about the history of the car, it was always...
