Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

I just realized this is the original cab that was on the 229A service car that was (also) in La Verne CA. Guess the guy restoring it found a better cab to use.

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

Well then, a Service Car (truck) would be perfect for a dealer. May have owned it from new then added "Mercury" and "Zephyr" when they were introduced. This would be much more interesting if the Service Car body was still with it.

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

Looks like the old writing on the door is "Ford - Mercury - Lincoln Zephyr". Did a dealer use this truck, after 1939? (when Mercury was introduced).

Re: First AA

Hey GK, good news, bad news: I have a front bumper with brackets you can have for $25, bad news is: it is in Upper Michigan, only available in the summer, and I don't want to ship it.

Re: Wheel stud and wheel nut

Kaboom, you could also purchase good used brake drums with good lugs on them. I'll bet someone in AA Forum has some. I might have some at my summer home, but I won't be there until next summer.

Re: Wheel stud and wheel nut

So then it is a '29, and it may be the original engine, as June '29 would be shortly before the 4 speed trannies were introduced.

Re: Maple floorboards

Crosscut, can you tell me the brand & part number of the bit used to cut the interlocking edges? Also what power tool did you mount that on?

Re: Maple floorboards

Nice job, crosscut! I like your dovetail interlocking joints like original, and the pegs inserted. Where did you get the cutters for the interlocking joints?

Re: Maple floorboards

Thanks Bob. Those ebay floorboards are fairly decent but they only have flat, glued together edges, not like the interlocking edge routing of the originals which used no glue. Originals also had pegs inserted to hold the boards together as well as the steel supports riveted to the underside. I have ...

Maple floorboards

Is anyone making & selling the original style maple planks that made up the original floorboards from 1928 to around mid-'29? They were made in the factory for wood products that Ford built in Kingsford Michigan, where Ford owned thousands of acres of woodlands nearby, where maple trees are very com...

Re: Differential substitutions for higher speed

I have had a couple high speed '30-31 differentials. One had the ratio tag on one of the bolts near the bottom. Another just had the ratio stamped on the case.

Re: Wheel stud and wheel nut

Good point Chris, but steering columns, like engines, are easily swapped. I had a '28 AA with a '30-31 steering column.

Re: Wheel stud and wheel nut

Kaboom you have an early 1930 truck with a replaced engine. Does your engine even have an "AA" serial number, or just "A"? Too bad you have not been able to view the correct original serial number for your truck that is on the frame.

Re: aa open cab truck

Yes roadster doors are the same, and you can just plunk down a bunch of $$$ and buy repops. I meant good luck finding original doors. Most of the guys in my Model A Club think I'm kinda obsessive about originality.
