  • Who Was Looking for a Cowl?

    Just recently someone was looking for a good cowl, and this looks like a good buy if it's what they need.
    The cowl band alone is pretty expensive.

      I think that is a 1929 cowl based on the firewall . I think the gas tank installs from inside the cowl?

        I believe your correct and it's listed as a 31

      It has the 1930 twist style gas cap.
      After looking closer, I do see the bottom right of the cowl is rusty.

        In our club members cars, we have 2 cars that are definitely '29s and have the 10gal tank with the twist off gas cap. So I don't see the gas cap type as a good indication of year.
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          I never seen a fire wall like that one before.

            Indeed George. I was wondering myself about the second seam.

          i just looked it up in my The Ford Model A book. It looks like a 1929 Cabriolet.

            But it might be a 1930, that is what rear fenders are plus the gas cap. But it is not a 31 they had a slanted windshield. At least the one in our club does. Not sure what his fire wall looks like. We also have two 30ts. I have seen the fire wall on both of them. I do not remember them looking like that. But maybe I did not notice.

            Yes, that is a 1929 Cabriolet cowl, not a 1930.

          Cowl bands
          by DBaldwin
          Seeing as though I’ve been unable to acquire a cowl band ( unless I’m willing to give up the left one) I noticed that 32 cowl bands are available how much different are they to a 30-31? Can I modify one to be acceptable? Remembering that it’s going on a ccpu so it will get painted black anyways. Thoughts and or suggestions?...

          Cowl welt ending at bottom of cowl
          by Rumbler
          I've searched through the fine point photos but haven't found a closeup at the bottom of the '28-'29 cowl welt. Where does it stop and is it just cut straight off or tucked in somehow?

          Cowl band install
          by Art Ebeling
          I put my original 31 cowlband installed just finger tight today. When I hold the cowl lamp arms against the cowl band there is a gap between tahe arm and the body. Do the lamp arms get tightened enough to close that gap. I had two cowl lamp arms break when shipped from the plater so I am not wanting to force these....

          Cowl kick panel clips
          by Bill G
          I am looking for the correct placement of clips that attach to the gas tank/cowl clamps on a 29 Tudor. I belive they serve a dual purpose of routing a wiper motor or other wire through a rubber grommet and also serve to secure the cowl kick panel, and I believe they mount in the front-most corner of the tank/cowl on the clamps, but I didn't take good notes when I took it apart. Also, there are two...

          Cowl band bolts
          by Tree grower
          On my cowl band two of the carriage bolts which connect to the cowl sides are missing. Since there is no trauma to the band I can only conclude that upon removal they were rusted and were twisted off. I would like to replace them, but there is no notch in the underside of the band to permit that. Any suggestions?

          Very Early 1930 Cowl Bands
          by Steve Plucker
          The very first 1930 Cowl Bands were attached to the cowl sides with carriage bolts. That being the case, did these first 1930 Cowl Bands, those which were assembled to the new 1930 bodies in November-December 1929, have the "angled studs" for which fit through slots on the cowl OR was this feature added later?

          Wanted 1930 cowl band for pickup
          by Rollingmed
          I have searched high and low, does anyone know if they will start reproductions of the cowl band? I am in the middle of a restoration and can’t find a decent cowl band. It seems they haven’t been made for some time.

          Cowl light question
          by John Brissette
          Our 1930 roadster is not a deluxe but it does have cowl lights. The fellow we bought it from told me the cowl lights were on the car when he bought it, unrestored, in 1958. The switch for dealer-installed cowl lights that is described in Chapter 18 of the “Judging Standards and Restoration Guidelines” is not present but that might not surprising because the previous owner had the car painted...

          Cowl light wire bracket
          by Art Ebeling
          Can someone post a picture of how the cowl light brackets attach on each side of the cowl on a 31? The center one in the middle at the upper corner of the terminal box is easy but I don't see how the other two attach. If they attach to the screw holding the cowl webbing that screw is into a cage nut so what holds the bracket? Thanks, Art
