  • Model A camper

    This was in Hemmings. Looks like quite a load for an A.

    I guess it depends on some of the modifications like on this thread

        Look up a Modern, small, "AIRSTREAM" Trailer, that would be PERFECT for a Model A.

        We traveled Route 66, many times in a similar one. Inside was wall to wall mattresses, 3 spare tires/wheels.
        At night, Chief arranged the 3 wheels outside, like a Teepee, covered it with a tarp & Bulger was on WATCHDOG DUTY. On the door wuz a sign, ".45 INSIDE"

      Just how did you determine his tongue load is to heavy?

        Are all "indents" created equal?
        by Mickey
        Is it the indent on a late '31 coupe firewall the same shape as the indent on the Budd CCPU pictured on the left below?
        After closer examination the indent on my '31 coupe appears to be mis-shaped to fit a heater or something (picture on the right)....

        With a tremendous amount of advice and encouragement from Mitch, I present a Series of older Articles I wrote pertaining to the restoration of the 1928 to 1931 Model A Fords. These articles span from 1976 to 1998
