    Product Description

    Now printed in the USA! All you want to know on the complete restoration of a Model 'A' Ford to its original condition, as it would have been driven out of the assembly plant door. The information this book holds, is beyond belief. Over 47 years of restoration advise and tips. As an example of body restoration, I have used three 1930 'Open Cars", the Phaeton, Roadster and Roadster Pickup, although this book mechanically would apply to all Model 'A's. It covers many things that other writers only dream about. The content is what I would want if I was restoring a car. No beating round the bush, just hard facts. Lots of my secrets and tips. There is even a few Model 'A' poems at the rear. I have taken an imaginary and complete 1930 'open' vehicle, 83 years old, with zero miles on the speedo, so it is 100% complete. The car is then dismantled bolt by bolt, giving every part number and showing all the parts, bolts and nuts removed in the process. Once the frame has been straightened and restored, the mechanicals are added, then the painted body, top, upholstery, etc is fitted, until a complete car can be driven away. The book does not end there, leaving the owner high and dry. There are following chapters on the starting of the car for beginners, general maintenance, even how to put a tire on a rim. Over 1000 color pictures with every part with it's correct part number. 366 pages.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review of Les Pearson's Manual, 1.9.2014
    Reviewer: D.E. Penrod (Placida, Florida)

    I have owned a 1930 RH drive Roadster from Australia for 15 years. I have used the conventional manuals that are available for the United States built Automobiles for all of my repairs----and I have been very frustrated on several mechanical repair occasions over those years. So you learn to "wing it"! So, the first thing I looked for in this manual was any information on the the manifold/exhaust clamp connection in the engine compartment, as that is a problem area for RH drive mechanics to work on using the conventional American type clamps (yes you can make it work but it is a very difficult job) . The author provided good coverage on that problem area. I contacted him by e-mail and found a supply house (in New Zealand) that has mailed me the correct clamp. So I was sold on the manual. Along the same line is a tip for not over tightening the rear exhaust clamp to allow for expansion of the entire exhaust system. I don't recall reading about that before---but perhaps I missed it in the other manuals that I own. The author has provided excellent coverage for both RH and LH Drive vehicles with lots of details---so you can't go wrong! I would give him 5 stars *****
