    I know nothing about it, but Google turned up a Bill's Model Acres Ford Farm in Watsontown, PA, which is pretty close to Willamsport.

    He's in Watsontown. He's helped me out quite a bit with various parts I've needed. He's got more than a few projects there, be prepared to pay the going rate, though. He's a self-admitted capitalist!

    Yep he's right on the going rate deal, good stuff. He's 20 minutes from me.

    Yep, probably 20 minutes from me-though I've got an A-I've never been there but thinking of running up this weekend.
    Watsontown is about 1.75-2 hours north of Harrisburg and right off I-80 about mile 212 or so. Are you looking for something specific?

    Sounds like it's time for a road trip.

    Definitely call him first before you just show up or it might be a disappointing trip. Especially on the weekends...

    Yea , it's a real place but more than a FARM !
    It's parts heaven ! He has what you need but not at a salvage price .
    Go with your list and he Will take care of your needs .


    There is also a car shop that just does repairs but has some Packards and 60's & 70's cars sitting on his lot also . He is south of York Springs . I was there many years ago but never asked about all the cars . I might have to go up and take a look to see what's going on with the cars .

    Just visited Bill's today. Fantastic place-he's got barns and barns of old Ford stuff-mostly A's but a really neat '40 sedan delivery and a '40 panel delivery. Also a really nice cat-Barnaby, He was nice enough to answer all my questions-took about an hour out of his work-opened some parts to show me how how a door handle went together, took me out to a junker in the field to show me how some parts fitted together inside the kick panel and called up a friend to ask him to show me his car painted in the colors I was interested in.

    Stuff's for sale, but I am sure he knows what it's worth-he deals in new parts with the major suppliers and he sells used partsf used to Bratton's and others and makes some parts,too. But if you need it, he's probably got it-except speed parts for the motors-I asked him about that one.

    He lives by the shop, but I'd call first And he'd be really easy to get to-only a couple of miles off the Interstates.
