    It is a 28-29 Fordor or Cabriolet hood.

      I noticed that the gasoline cap is the later 1/4 turn type, not screw on. That makes the cab an early 1930 cab, as the cab was not changed to the round back type until june 1930,

      Welcome to the VFF. Hope to hear lots more about your truck in future. I agree with Bob C, 28 29 Fordor or cabrio hood.
      But, another thing I notice, is your petrol (gas) cap. Your truck might be an early 1930 truck. Your cap looks to be a 1/4 turn cap, the rad cap is a thread on. 28/29 had a thread on fuel cap, like the rad.
      Either way, I would like to see your truck parked in my garage.

          More likely, very early 1930. Makes the truck a rare transitional vehicle. Cool!!

          Wow, extremely rare in your area.
          I believe, I can speak for the entire forum: I'd love to hear more about your truck. And lots of pictures of the work you are doing on it. Thanks. Jeff

            29 Repro gas cap question
            by fred93
            The original gas cap on the 29 Tudor that I am restoring would not tighten down. The threads looked okay but when I tried to tighten it down it just kept turning. So I bought a repro from Brattons and when I went to put it on the gas tank I seemed to have a tough time of it. Those fine threads are a pain (I guess that is why Ford changed it on to 30-31 cars)

            Anyway, I got it to fit (I...

            Radiator cap rebuild
            by Loubob
            I want to install a motormeter in a repro 1930/31 cap. Does anyone sell the inner cap parts necessary to do the rebuild? Anyone offer this service? Suggestions?
            I don't want the locking cap. Thanks! Loubob...

            Hood Identification
            by Bobm90
            This is a picture of the hood on my 30 Town sedan, please note the holes in it surrounding the louvers, these appear to be factory made and are on both sides, the hood fits fairly well, I haven't seen these on any A hoods or replacements maybe you more experienced guys have , any info would be welcomed, thanks.

            I saw this on Facebook “COE and one tons” Typically I do not like modified A’s, however this one is an exception that was tastefully done.

            Radiator support rods
            by Beauford
            anyone know the length of these rods...I have the mid '29 - up rods and they seem to be 1/2 inch to long. I don't know if a early 28 frame makes a difference. I have a new 28-29 rad.

            1930 A
            by ModelAMercer71
            Good afternoon. I'm new to the group. I'll admit that I'm new to Model A's and early Fords. Will a 1930 hood fit any of the other Model A's? Thanks in advance.

            eaton gas cap
            by Art Ebeling
            How do you take an original Eaton stainless gas cap apart for restoration. I have the 30/31 style with the stainless cap pressed on the inner cadium part. It seems like I have seen an article somewhere but I can't find it.
