          Years ago I would have wanted that, but now I like to keep my cars as stock as possible.
          When I was a senior in high school, one of my classmates built hot rods and only used inline 6's, and usually dual carbs and split exhaust.

            Notice the shade of the blue and the lower one the mask was shifted off to one side a bit. Dont matter what it sold for, the pictures are worth downloading and keeping.

              Brent, that may be true. I have heard tell that Ford did not waste anything. So parts that were not good enough for production got sold to dealers as repair parts. So that part with a lot of shelf wear might have been a part that did not fit right. The one that they gave the new mechanic to screw with him.

              It also may have been a later replacement part. I have been told that parts made after production were not always up to the print. In some cases the later spares may have been contracted out.

              It does not matter in this case as there is some significant work getting the shelf wear out and it will need to be repainted.

                center bumper clamp restoration help
                by Brubaker
                Are there folks within the hobby that specialize in metalwork such as restoring the face of a bumper clamp (center in this case)? I just don't have the proper tools.

                Front Bumper Brackets
                by Steve Plucker
                A lot of times the Front Bumper Brackets are slightly bent or tweeaked out of shape...some more than others.

                That being the case then, just what is correct on a 1928-1929 Model A?

                Does anyone have on their Model A, true and correct Front Bumper Brackets? And if so, what is the distance from the very center of the Front Bumper Bar to the center of the hole on the Front Bumper...

                Bumper centre clamp
                by Poor Boy
                Good evening. When a 31 Model A is equipped with a factory rear luggage rack and full width rear bumper, would it have a centre bumper clamp to match the front? I didn’t think that they did, but recently saw a picture of a car with one and it got me thinking. Thanks. Jim.

                NOS Center Bumper Clamp Picture
                by Tom Wesenberg
                A friend just sent me a link to this NOS center Bumper clamp on ebay. Turns out it was sold by one of our club's members, and the auction was over when I just got the link, but thought you might like to see how the original blue paint looks.

                1931 Rear bumper brackets for one piece bumper
                by greenhornet
                I am looking for correct bumper brackets for a 1931 Deluxe roadster with sidemounts. If anything a parts number or description would help but I have not been able to find a reference for that either.I am going to also need a bumper but some tell me it is the same as a front bumper and some tell me it has more curve or arc.Thanks for any [email protected]

                AA bumper
                by Chuck Sea/Tac
                Is this bumper correct? I’ve never paid attention to AA trucks per se, but it looks out of place. It’s in the October 2018 Hemmings classic cars.
