Saw this Model A Ford across the street....

Recommended Posts

Looking out my front door this morning, I caught some guys going on a tour. Only 1 Model A Ford (slightly altered) at the time I saw them.

Benefits of AACA Membership.

You are very fortunate, John.  Looks like this guy stopped touring to allow all those close up photos.  Anyone else stop?  Any info on what tour it was?

It was a local Model A group. For some reason, a lot of them do not use their cars in "winter". That is one of the reasons I quit the local old car group. My honey and me were the only ones driving an old car.

Aries makes the best exhaust systems for the Model A hobbyists.  Import repros are undersized and restrictive, robbing from our precious 40 hp!!

Nice truck. I question the spare being on the passenger side, though.

I don't rule that out. I actually had a 1928 with factory, dual sidemounts....

I'd feel safer taking a passenger side spare off in heavy traffic, not everyone is into show point deductions.

The truck has 29 plates on it but it looks to be a 30. What year is it?

I had a 1930 A sedan delivery with only a right side spare.

Maybe it was an option, I'd want to open the drivers door all the way if I was getting in and out all day long delivering things. Bob

I questioned that a while back when I posted this truck before.

Oregon didn't use a plate in 1930, just a sticker for the windshield.

I have never known this, was it a one year only thing?

I have an Oregon 1928 plate issued to one of my cars.

Pictured truck is a 1931 if the stainless cowl band and the ONE PIECE running board splash apron are correct.

It was just 1930.

 

This got me to thinking about the nice lady at DMV that emailed me several pages of info on the History of Oregon plates.

This page in particular does say in the sub notes that a sticker for 1930 with 29 plates.

Love to learn something that I should have already remembered.   LOL
