A: Technical and other Information:


Markus Maurer: Restoration of a Ford Model A Pickup:

This site is a major source of information and gave the final impuls to start a similar project.



A site dedicated to the Model A enthusiast. In the forum and in the archives you can find the answer to almost any question. Also many pictures.

Especially in the Model A Forum a major source of technical information.


Marco's Model 'A' Ford Barnyard:

A site dedicated to the Model 'A' Ford, with detailed photos and descriptions, restoration tips, service tips, and other general information.


Vince Falters

This page is a reliable source of plenty of information about authenticity, tools and other information. It is is dedicated to topics relating primarily to the history and authentic restoration of the 1928 to 1931 Model A and AA Ford, 1932 Model B and BB Ford, and the 1933 to 1934 Model BB and Model 40/46 four cylinder Ford cars, trucks, and parts produced worldwide by the Ford Motor Company.


There are many others, but the above we used most.


B. Parts and restoration suppliers


Most used parts and almost all of the tools we bought at ebay, (no link, but you might know the correct adress). We are very happy with buying at ebay, and were very rarely disappointed. In the contrary, we got to know some very interesting people around the world.


New parts we bought at MACS ( and we are very happy with the international service.


C: Service Providers and Workshops


The machine shop for the engine (babitt, boring, honing etc.) was Stolze mototech GmbH ( in Brandenburg an der Havel. Thanks to Mr Wazda for his advise and perfect work.


The plating of interior parts was done by Frank Baltes Oberflächentechnik ( in Solingen. Thank you for a wonderful job!
