Georgia Mayne (1928 Model A Tudor Sedan - 55A) -
I recently purchased a 1928 Tudor. The
engine number is 241168. In the process of doing a restoration on
it. Would enjoy talking to others with similiar A's that have the
55A body style. I'm located in Ofallon Mo.
Gary (1928 Model A Tudor Sedan - 55A) - Lee1917@aol.com. I wanted a Model A for twenty years and finally got one three months ago. My car has never been completely restored and it is still in pretty good condition. My wife and I have really enjoyed the small trips that we have taken so far in our new old car, and we are looking forward to many more. Our car was manufactured in August of 1928. Hope that everyone has good luck with the old A's and happy motoring.

The car came with 2 new Garfield 21 inch whitewalls, but I can't seem to match them up, as they are no longer manufactured. Does anyone out there have three of them in their garage or barn that they wish to part with?"
Ray Taylor (1929 Tudor Sedan) We are the proud owners of a 1929 Tudor Sedan. We are in love with this little beauty and want to share our happiness with other happy Model A owners. The problem we have is living on Whidbey Island in Washington state and not knowing of any local chapters of the Model A Club of America. Can anyone relate to us any information on this organization or one similar? We are anxious to meet others in our area who are proud owners of Model A's.

Janet Wade (1929 Tudor Sedan) - email@example.com."I have a 1929 Tudor Sedan that I bought in 1965 at a auction with three pigs. I have been waiting for 30 some years for the tooth fairy to come along and fix this car. He has never showed up yet. Last year I took off the gas tank and had it boiled out and relined...waited another year for that darn tooth fairy. Still nothing. About two weeks ago I lost all faith in tooth fairies and hauled the car to town. Since then I've got the gas tank back on, the starter rebuilt and on, the generator and cutout checked and back on, new fan belts, radiator hose, and rewired it. Things I never thought I could do. I'm a girl. Well actually maybe a little long of tooth to be called a girl. I keep working on it. If I think too hard about it I'll give up. I usually just think that I'll just do one little thing and often am surprised when I get it done. If I can't do that part then I go on to another part. Sometimes when I go back to the first project, I'll find that I can get one more bolt undone. I really only had three wrenches (metric at that) but I've found that you only need about three wrenches for a Model A. They don't seem to be too fussy. Next week I hope to get it started. My dad is 85 and says he could start it in about 10 minutes. He's always telling methat Model A's are very simple and they gave them to 12 year olds just to cut their teeth on. I hope he's right. I bet that they wish duct tape was available back then rather than hay wire. Mine has a lot of hay wire." Janet

Dennis Krauss (1929 Tudor Sedan) - email@example.com. "The day I brought it home, it was just a rusted shell on a frame with three differnt size wheels. AFTER ELEVEN YEARS OF SCAVAGING AT SWAP MEETS AND JUNK YARDS, I got smart and started to buy new parts from Snyders, Harkos, and Gas Light that I hope to be putting in over the next few weeks. Then I can't wait to see the people who laughed the day I brought my treasured possesion home!"
Joel Zinnecker (1929 Briggs Fordor Steelback - 60C) - JANDBZINNR@aol.com. "Recently started a complete body off restoration of this 60-C. I have the advantage of having my brother and dad helping with the work, it's a group project. Things are moving along at a good pace and we're hoping to have the work done by next summer in time for the car's birthday (the date stamp in the firewall is 6-22-29).
The only hangup we have is that the front seat had been replaced back in the 60's with VW Beetle seats. The flowers and peace signs on the dash make me think perhaps the previous owners were hippies. No telling where the original front seat is now, the car has been sitting in an airplane hanger for 25 years. If you, or anyone surfing through, has any information on where I might find a front seat frame, I would appreciate it." Joel Zinnecker, Lincoln, NE.

Randy Braswell (1929 Tudor) - RBraswell@aol.com "I think it is a '29 Tudor. Don't really have a clue other than the title. Runs pretty good. Drives pretty good. Shocks don't work. I think everything else is there. Never had a car that old. Need all the advise I can get."

Riley KS, I had the engine rebuilt and I started a frame up restoration. Brought it home to our barn in Oregon in '76. It stayed in the corner of the barn until a few months ago. I have since rebuilt the rear end and we have a running chassis. I'm working on the fenders and body now." 503/873-3545

Mark Dellaratta (1931 Tudor Sedan) - DELAFAX@webtv.net. "I purchased the poor old dog from a Truly Nolan Exterminator franchise. It had been used as a roadside advertisement. They forgot to take care of it or at least try to turn the engine once in a while. Needless to say, after approximately 10 years of sitting in the hot Florida sun, the restoration began showing its wear. There was 10 gallons of varnish in the gas tank and the valve train was rusted (that Florida humidity!).
Marvel Mystery Oil, head gasket, plugs, new carb. and an electronic ignition (of course) had the car back to life. I now use it locally and take my kids around town. They think it's a school bus?
In gutting the interior, I found some personal letters from some prior owner that told me this car made its way to Tampa by way of Fort Myers. Beneath the back seat, I found some newspapers from the Chicago area from 1966!! Cool!! If the seats could talk!! Who knows... someone's Gramma and Grampa had a fling in this thing!! What a great simple auto... keep that new imported stuff!!"

There are very few of these vehicles left; in 25 years of searching I have come up with fewer than 30 people owning one. Even fewer are restored.
