Information Wanted for Model A Database

I am compiling a database of Model A Fords, based on the vehicle engine number. No hot rods please. It is based on the engine number simply because the frame number is usually not accessible.

Currently the database contains approximately 2,000 Model As. The database includes: the year of the vehicle; the engine number; the body style (i.e. 35-A or B, 40-A or B, 55-A or B, 76-A or B, 150-A or B, 190-A, 400-A, etc.); the body type (i.e. phaeton, roadster, sport coupe, tudor sedan, fordor sedan, pickup, station wagon, standard or deluxe model, etc.); the location of the spare, tire(s) (left, right, rear); the colors; and miscellaneous features (i.e. rumble seat, eyebrow fenders, 1931 indented firewall, etc.). For security reasons, the database does not include any personal information about the vehicles’ owner.

Wanted USED TAN CANVAS Convertible Top Material

I have a 1928 Model A Roadster with plenty of patina that I want to keep.  My convertible top is too weak and weathered but I don’t want to put a ‘new top’ on a beautifully aged Roadster… so I’m looking for TAN canvas top material that has some significant wear and stains but still enough strength to go down the road without coming apart.  Complete ’28-29 used roadster top would be great but I would also be interested in material from other cars that we could use to make a ‘new’ old looking top!! Thanks for your help.

Forming a new region of MARC for the 2018 National Meet


We are forming a new region for a National Meet in June of 2018 in Branson, Missouri. Need officers and volunteers willing to help to bring off what can well be one of the largest National meets in recent history.  Branson is rich in natural scenic resources as well as shows, fine restaurants and three nice nearby lakes.  We have tentatively reserved a huge hotel with near 700 rooms available and some 400+ more close by with some nice economy hotels within a mile of the host hotel. Traffic is ideal for our hobby and there are loads of amenities offering us all the things that are important for a good summer meet. 

Contact:  Dan Bixby  816-213-8437,

Let me know if you are able to serve on a board in this new region or can help with setting up this next meet.
