  1. My dad has the bought the wood for the bottom of his '30 2 door, but didn't think about the top wood. Now he is running out of $$ and in a hurry to finish the A. He is looking for old A wood, or even one in Utah or nearby that he can take measurements from. Anything leads appreciated. thanks,
  2. Need 3 rebuildable shocks for Ford Model A. Please email me. Thanks,
  3. Want to buy seat springs for my 1917 Model T touring. Yes, I know I can buy them new from Langs, Macs, and several others, but... I like used stuff that still has some life in it. There has to be someone's neighbor, brother in law, or friend of a friend who is butchering T's and stashing the seats somewhere... Let me know, Thanks,
  4. Not an AACA event, but the best Utah has to offer: Auto Expo proceeds go to the auto trade for the school. See you there!
  5. UVU Auto Expo; not an AACA event, but the proceeds go to the automotive tech department of the school. Auto Expo
  6. I have been looking for a few years also. About the only plans you can find on line are for "depot hacks"...not exactly what everyone wants. I have decided that those who have plans are not willing to part with them, as they make and sell the wood kits themselves. (They don't want to create competition for themselves.) Even if you find one of these companies, they probably will not return your call. Most of them don't even waste thier time talking to individual customers, they only want to go through larger distributors to make thier life easier. My dad had a experience with a relatively local company that caused us to come to these conclusions.
  7. I have no connection to this ad, but saw it & would like to see this rare car given a chance at a restoration rather than a "rod" Car Classifieds for Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming | ksl.com thanks,
  8. I did see a Buick Hearse at the UVU car show at Thanksgiving point last year. Sorry, don't know who it belongs to or where it came from. website is: Auto Expo
  9. I need wood plans for '30 model A Briggs body that don't cost more than the wood itself.... Also need the rear alxe parts. Thanks, cj
  10. No extras, but dad can tell you how he made them.
  11. That is interesting...it is possible that this body was modified a very long time ago. He found where the driver's side of the vehicle has about half an inch of wood added to it between the frame and body - possibly to make it match the height of other side?? Bad news for the curious; as of yesterday, what was left of the body was off of the frame - except the front cowl. He obviously has more time on his hands than I do... Now I know where the numbers are hiding, I will look & let you know. Thanks, P.S....thanks for the pic. Very nice looking automobile.
  12. Comming home from work the other night, saw my neighbor 2 doors down working on an old car. (I was rather excited since I thought I was the only one who was into old cars in the area.) Turns out it is a 1925 Hupp 2 door sedan. He plans to make it into an open car since the roof is gone - not completely keeping with design, but at least he isn't going to make it into hot rod - and get it working for 4th of July next year - a "grandkid hauler" I am not much of a Hupp person, but know some about 1920's cars & offered to help. He is an older guy without much $$ (aren't we all?) & no computer. The car looks like it was once cream with black fenders & cream wood wheels. He is looking for a color picture to get some ideas of what it should look like, and colors to paint it. Any info would be appreciated. thanks,
  13. Found the front axle for an Essex at a local scrap yard. They wouldn't let me buy it - it was against company policy to sell anything to private collectors. :mad: Told a few of the workers (jose?) that I saw the hubcaps get $50.00 on ebay. A friend said it had mysteriously disappeared by the next day.
