Research – 82-A Closed Cab Hinge Pillar Design?

Post by Neil Wilson » April 12th, 2017, 8:57 am

The first attached picture shows an unusual design of the 82-A closed cab left hinge pillar. Has anyone seen this design? I am quite sure that this hinge pillar was from an early 1929 79-A panel delivery.

The first picture shows the location for the side view mirror is 7-7/8" from the bottom of the upper hinge to the mirror bracket upper mounting hole. The mounting holes are 2" on center and a tapping bar (or something) is attached to the inside of the pillar which have 5/16-24 threads for the dome (oval) headed hex bolts used to install the A-17741 mirror bracket.

The second picture shows the location of the d-nuts for the side view mirror is 5-7/8" from the bottom of the upper hinge to the upper d-nuts. These 5/16-24 d-nuts are also spaced 2" on center for the installation of the A-17741 mirror bracket.

The third picture shows the A-17741 mirror bracket.

Neil I sent you some photos at your email as I don't know how to attach them on this site.
They show both of the measurements as in your pictures with the longer distance on my 1929 88-A platform. Hope it helps, Charlie

Thank you Charlie,
Your pictures verify that the hinge pillar design being researched as a Ford design and not just an owner's modification.

To Everyone,
There are now five designs of the left hinge pillar for body types 79-A panel delivery, 82-A closed cab, and 85-A panel delivery. These designs are for different mirror bracket locations and designs. I am working on an article for the 2018 Double A'er which will update AA mirror installations.

Attachment of pictures is limited to three on this board. So, I will attach d1-d3 to this post and d4-d5 to the next post. Note that my "hinge pillar" name is listed as "coupe pillar" in the Ford body parts list.
