Unusual Victoria on eBay

This 1931 Ford Model A Victoria (Coach Work by German Coach Builder Karosseriefirma Gläser of Dresden) is probably like nothing you've ever seen. According to the AACA, there were 50 of these cars built, but very few survived WWII - we know of 2, this car, and another at the Verkehrs Museum in Dresden, Germany.

Back in the Day

Photo

The Auto Wash Bowl was built in Chicago in 1924 by The Newway Auto Cleaning & Service Corp. The car was first run around in the pool of water to flush mud and dirt off of the undercarriage. It was then driven up into a stall and the car was washed in the normal matter to complete the job. Source: www.theoldmotor.com

Tool Boxes

 picture

April 4 - One of the things I've noticed at Model A gatherings for years is the variety of tool boxes that have been adapted to Model A's. Most of them have been located between the front frame "horns" but I've seen them on running boards too.

If you have a nifty tool box on your Model A, Send us some photos and a description of it and we'll show them off on a new web page soon.
