      Looks like it should have a lot of room in the cab depending on what seat is being used.

          That's cool! I'd like to have a pickup like that. I have often wondered what a Tudor would look like having that done to it...

          Curious to know what you did on the inside for bracing? Those early Fordors have so much wood.

            all the wood from door post to windshield frame is used and the over the top of door sections , the rear window and curved sections are all moved forward. some metal brackets and 1/4 carriage bolts firm it up.

          The third seat (removable) from a 90's Dodge mini-van fits perfectly.

          In Oklahoma, during the WAR, it was common to cut off CARS/ETC, to make a "FARM TRUCK"---License fees were cheaper & you got MORE, Gas Rationing Stamps---Even Folks with NO FARM, did it, in case they BOUGHT a FARM--LOL

            They did that here also, to get a truck gas ration sticker. When I was a kid (long ago) there was an old black guy who still drove such a truck. He had no registraion, and probably no licence, but the cops left him alone, as he was a nice guy and did not bother anybody. The cops were not gestapo jerks back then.

          FWIW: My 1930 former rumble seat Coupe came with a later added, (maybe 1948), truck type wood box & wood tailgate with a truck license plate.

          I was told by the former, farmer owner that he did it because cars license plates were $2.00 & trucks were only $1.00.

            Hey H.L , thats a great FWIW... I have a Canadian built and tortured 29 A. FWIW.. Must have been tough in Canada back in those days, tires on my old rig had straw packed in between tire and rim for a bit of cushion I suppose. and old fellas say they used diesel fuel for antifreeze to slow down the freeze up. So a $2 or $1 registration must be a major expense.

          FWIW: As far as WWII additional gas rationing information, my Dad and his brother had inboard engines in boats; e.g., one a 1932 Model B engine, the other a 1932 Ford V8 engine.

          Both boats were voluntarily registered with the U.S. Coast Guard with assigned Federal Numbers painted in light blue on white background near the bow.

          After signing a contract, and having one's boat registered, the U.S. Coast Guard could take one's boat in an emergency to use for transporting soldiers or military supplies.

          As a Federal pay back, such boat owners could obtain unlimited gas rationing tickets for said inboard motor boats.

          I gave my oldest son my Uncle's boat which still had the Coast Guard's number painted on it. After my Uncle beat Higgins in a boat race, Higgins hired an engineer to copy the design of this boat's bottom to build his WWII PT boats.

          Just in case one has an extra Model A engine, maybe keep this possible U. S. Coast Guard Contract in mind in case of a future war; e.g., build a hull, install one's Model A engine in same, and have enough gasoline rationing cards to go on Model A tours & visit friends at local Old-Folks' or Veterans' Home.

          Hope some Model A guy comes to visit me after they build their boat!

            Since I don't know what the body on a chassis looks like (fenders, aprons, welt, rubber blocks) I was wondering if there were any publications that show pictures of mounting all these items? I'm a picture guy and like detailed representations. '29 Roadster P/U. The Model A pickup book isn't cutting it.

            It IS nicer to watch live on the Internet vs. NBCHD TV. On TV they sell three cars and then cut to 8 minutes of commercials. Redundant ever repeating commercials. Not so with Watch Live. Commercial free.Plus there isn't all the bidder drama that the TV shows you, they don't have them displayed on TV. And the auctioneer is more pro-active on Watch Live. It's more about the car. Makes it more interesting....

            Greetings, My first post here having migrated over from ******** for something new and to get away from "what kind of oil should I use".
            I have just purchased a rust free Special Coupe that was last registered in 1961. It is a time capsule with about 90% of it's original parts intact. If not for an ugly blue repaint, I would register it in original class in Dearborn next year. I did...

            Open Cab vs. Closed Cab Pick-up production numbers...
            by Steve Plucker
            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?

            Is it true the top on the open cab pickup was not designed to be put down? I've seen them down but is that a change from the original?
