Excuse me, but I only see 2 valves per cyl.
sure i could be wrong but i'm also pretty sure there are two inlets hidden in there.
Christian Science Church, Pasadena, CA...1939, I think it it still there.
Service station on Vermont Avenue. Los Angeles, no date, guessing late 1920s or early 1930s?
In mid 1928 Ford started producing the Special Coupe which featured the long grain top and stopped producing the more traditional steel coupes until mid 1929 when they stopped making the Special Coupe. Production numbers didn't differentiate between regular and Special Coupes so it isn't possible to peg exactly how many of what type was made.
Long story short; it is a Mid 1928 - Mid 1929 Model A Special Coupe.
Here's a couple of random "Vintage Shots".
I love the globes on these pumps.
I love the way every Cold War era Russian car was "heavily influenced" by a comparable big 3 American style!! Nice try knocking off the Buick Le Sabre, comrades!
Mr. Forestello in the driveway of his 1929-built home in San Antonio, Texas with his brand new 1933 Dodge Deluxe just purchased at Baker Dodge on N. Broadway. The 1917 Dodge touring in the family since new became their second car.
Here's a shot of my Great-Uncle Lloyd (from whom I got my T-bird & Starliner) in front of his parent's house in the early 1940's while home on leave during WWII. Posing in front of a very mildly dressed up '40 Mercury convertible.
Great lookin ride there. Really takes on a different character with the running boards pulled off. Sweet!
Yep!---Not to mention those "Flipper" hub caps & twin spots!----That would have been a top ride back then!
Time to travel
Nothin' better than a HEMI powered blonde!!
Does anyone remember this photo? I thought it came from this thread but I can't find the original post. Just a cool pic and I was wondering where it came from. Tom.
A little something from the Orange County CA Sheriff Museum.
Sorry went the wrong way...
