  • ID CCPU/AA truck windshield frame

    I posted this on ********, but of course I have gotten no responses like usual or any useful ones. I am not sure I have posted this message on the correct section, but I see no regular message section. Thus is the first post on this forum, so please forgive me for possibly posting on an incorrect section.

    I have a windshield frame I purchase years ago at a swap meet. It is obviously used on a CCPU or AA truck since it has the tube for a manual wiper. However, instead of a the normal narrower 28 wind deflector or the wider 29 wind deflector with single tapered ends, this frame has the double cut ends like 30/31 wind deflectors. It also has the 28/29 type slide arm brackets. I know that the 28/29 cab was use to the middle of 1930. I suspect the windshield frame might have been used on a AA truck or CCPU for the first half of 1930. This is just an educated guess. If anyone has any information about this or has an early style cab 1930 CCPU or AA truck, I would appreciate any useful information concerning the windshield frame I have. The windshield frame is in very good condition, but I need to ID what it is used on.

      Is it also possible the truck top bar was installed on a later car bottom?

      I'm not sure what ones interchange.

        I have an original early 30 cab. I’m on the way to the Turlock Swap Meet. When I get back next week I’ll take a look at the W/S and post.

            Possibly an early 1930, which other than the gas cap was the same as the 29 cab. Rod

              I would appreciate you checking your early 30 CCPU windshield when you get a chance and posting the information here. Like I stated in the initial post, I am thinking the mystery windshield frame I have is from a first half 1930 cab like yours, but not sure. Since I bought it at a swap meet, I have no idea what vehicle it came from. Could you post the date of manufacture of your 1930 pickup. I don't know if Ford made the parts transition close to the beginning of the year or somewhat earlier or a little later. If anyone else reading this post has a first half of1930 AA truck or CCPU, please post what your windshield is.

                1929 CCPU/AA truck windshield frames
                by wrndln
                There are several of us 29 CCPU owners (Dan Partain, Dudley Moordigian, a fellow in our local Twin Cities model A club and me) that are trying to figure out what the correct windshield type should be for April 29 and mid 29 pickup windshield frames. Our CCPU's have been messed with over the years, so we are not sure if the windshield frames on our pickups are correct. All of us know that 1928 CCPU...

                I've heard "just buy a repo", so what's a good repo ? I would like to try to restore a "fair", but has a rusty frame. I know it wouldn't be worth my time, but has anyone done this with success ? Any advice or pictures would be welcome. pAAt

                28-29 CCPU Mirrors on windshield posts
                by Denis4x4
                Asked this question over at brand X and really got no satisfactory answers. My '29 CCPU cab was built from various pieces. It was originally a homemade C cab and I bought doors and extended cab corners, etc. The mirrors on both sides are bolted to the windshield posts just below the visor mounts as opposed to hinge mounts. Can someone tell me if I have an A or AA cowel?

                Need 60-A and 60-B Windshield Frame Measurements
                by Rowdy
                A friend traded a Model T windshield frame for a Model A windshield frame. When he got it home it is definately not a standard Model A windshield frame size and the hinge bracket at the top appears to bolt to wood at the ends, not just scrwe to the header . I am thinking it is likely a 28 Briggs windshield or other fordor frame as it only has a single hole for a hand wiper. Could use a width and height...

                30 Tudor Sedan Windshield not closing at the bottom
                by Stage1gs
                Hi everyone,

                The windshield on my 1930 Tudor Sedan hit the gas cap, so I took the rubber seal off and that problem went away.

                I have had this car for 9? years, and the bottom of the windshield never closed all the way at the bottom and stays open about 1/4”. When it rained over the weekend, a lot of water came in around this opening.. wife was pissed😳.

                1930 Ford Model A Windshield Frame
                by lilorbie
                I have a 1930 Ford Model A with a Murray Body. The windshield frame is missing. What I would like to know are the closed cars windshields all the same. I am guessing that they maybe. But I don't know for sure. I would think that the Brigg's would be different.? Any help on this would be great . Also what would a good price for a decent used one.? I can have the glass made local.Thanks.

                What kind of windshield frame is this?
                by Soapy
                I was thinking it was for a Model A, but it's obviously something else. Model T?

                Finish of windshield frame screws
                by Rumbler
                What finish should the windshield frame screws be on an 82-A closed cab? The two oval heads near the upper corners on the face of the frame and the four flat heads on the side.

                Same question for the windshield upper hinge to header mounting screws.

                Windshield frame question
                by Bill G
                I have a question about my windshield frame. I have a February 29 Tudor that was originally wired for an electric wiper, which would be proper. I bought the car missing the wiper motor. I have been studying the mounting for wipers and I have run across something that confuses me. The first attachment is a diagram that shows up in frequent posts about windshield frames and wiper mounts. It comes...

                Windshield Rattles
                by saxman657
                I'm noticing more rattling from my windshield on my '28 Tudor. The rattle is definitely the windshield glass against portions of the windshield frame. Does anyone know of quick fixes? If not resources when it comes to pulling the frame from the hinge, the glass from the frame, cleaning, and reinstalling with new setting tape and gasket? Definite rookie when it comes to this area.
