  • Trunk, Luggage or something else?

    (To coincide with WW, BW and Oil)

    I prefer same period luggage and other things rather than a trunk. I got one but it just didn't dress Sarah they way I wanted her to look. The trunk is covered with dust now. Glad I got the luggage when I did, seems value has went through the roof on Ebay.

      I have a trunk that is too long and too deep to fit a Model A and don't know what to do with it. I suppose I could make a rack to fit it, but then, it would block my 3rd stop light. *sighs*
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        About 20 years ago I saw one setting beside a garage about 20 miles north of me.
        I stopped to ask about it and could have bought it for $250. Like a dummy I didn't buy it.

          Someone with a Packard or Rolls Royce needs it.

            There are a few companies remaking Mullins trailers, mostly in fiberglass but I did find an original one on Ebay but it might not be your color......or size. :D

              I have a trunk I made. I originally made my own rack so now that I have a "correct" one the trunk is a little small.

                I had a trunk many years ago that was too deep for the rack. I cut the (wood) sides and reattached the back. The top lid was done the same way. Then smoothed out the wood and covered with long/ short grain sedan top material.

                      Luggage Rack w/ Trunk
                      by JohnB15632
                      For those of you guys who are running with a luggage rack w/ trunk, how are you securing the trunk to the rack?

                      Thanks

                      Luggage Rack w/ Trunk Installation
                      by JohnB15632
                      I tried to mount the trunk on the luggage rack. But, it does not fit.
                      It was my thoughts that the luggage rack, when stowed, showed the wooden slats.
                      So, when the luggage rack is lowered, the wood slats are down and a metal frame exists on the top.
                      My luggage rack will not sit within the metal frame.

                      Am I doing something wrong?

                      Color me confused.

                      Model A trunk
                      by carolinamudwalker
                      I finely saw a trunk on a sport coup that looked half way descent. Most are too large and look like the front end is about to come off the ground. Has anyone ever built a trunk or know if there are plans out there to build one?

                      Build your own Custom Luggage Trunk
                      by Bobm90
                      I ran across a old gent at the last car show I attended, he had a gorgeous luggage trunk on his car that he built himself. He told me where to locate the plans for these. So if any of you may be interested and want a winter project and not know about this link from MAFCA, you can get the PDF there and print up a set of plans, I will post a picture of his finished trunk. On a test I had trouble just...

                      Trunk Repair
                      by JohnB15632
                      About a year ago, I picked up this luggage rack and this trunk for $50.00. I could not pass this up.

                      Now, I have a great winter project.

                      First, how do I go about removing this fasteners (rivet) ? I have to start somewhere.

                      Thanks,...

                      Photo of curved back trunk?
                      by smittykid
                      Does anyone out there have a photo of a curved back trunk (no spare tire) mounted on a Victoria? Specifically, just like the one Snyder's sells. I'm picking up that 31 Victoria I've been looking at and sooner or later I'm going to install a luggage rack and trunk. My Roadster has no rear spare and it has a straight back trunk and it looks ok. Thanks, Smitty----- Ooops-sorry for the double post.

                      Trunk Handle
                      by Soapy
                      I need to know which direction the trunk handle on my 1930 Coupe should be pointing when the trunk is closed. I have looked in the books and on the site but all I can see is rumble seat handles and spare tires. I am assuming that it probably faces down, but we all know what assumptions are worth.
