OT any Model A parts vendors?

Post by thom » Wed Feb 20, 2019 12:33 am

I'm going to check out a '29 Model A tudor sedan tomorrow. I will probably buy it if the seller and I agree on a price. I am wondering if there are any Model A parts vendors that offer service as good I have from gotten from Lang's on my Model T parts for the past two years. Anybody had really good luck with Model A vendors? :?: I know a couple already that I won't deal with but I'd like to know who the good ones are.
Who else on here is also into Model A's?
Thanks.

Not in any order. Most all the parts we sell in the shop come from Snyder's and Bratton's.
Fordbarn has a good Model A forum section.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

I've been using Brattons for the last couple of years.

They've been good so far.

This is the '29 A tudor I'm going to look at. If it's as good mechanically as the seller claims it will be worth the asking price OBO. We will see.

You must be a gluten for punishment! Ha Ha. I use Snyders, Good people and good products. Love the rods they have for the T's and A's. Good luck with the prospect.

Hard to go wrong with the vendors mentioned above. I've ordered from all of them and had real good service and the all seem to know their products. I'm fairly new to the A world and needed a lot more over the last year than I expected. Not unhappy, just gaining more experience faster than I'd hoped. Like the T world, join in with the local club, at least around here they are fantastic resources and great people.

The "seller" is not returning any of my attempts to contact him so it looks like I might not be buying that '29 tudor after all. :(

I get my T parts from Lang's and A parts from Snyder's --
when I remember to type Snyder's car parts so I don't get Snyder's pretzels and spend 10-15 minutes wondering which bag I should order.

A Model A window regulator from Snyder's was damaged during shipping
they immediately replaced it and told me to throw the damaged one away.
Great service -Honest people

So did you get the Tudor??

Also, seeing that you are in western NC, come over the mountain to Elizabethton to the shop sometime and we'll discuss Model-As for awhile. We have between 15-20 A's in here being restored or serviced right now, so there will be plenty to talk about. Also, I host a three-day Model-A Workshop in April for A's that generally is a lot of fun to participate in if you want to come. Dates are April 12th-14th and it is free to attend. And, ...I am hosting the Model-T Poor Tour in Hendersonville this summer if you have a T you wanna join us with.
