Ford Model A Type 82B Closed Cab Pick-Up 1930 (8265)

Ford Model A Type 82B Closed Cab Pick-Up 1930 (8265)

Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan – U.S.A.
Type: Model A Type 82B Closed Cab Pick-Up Truck
Engine: 3236cc straight-4
Power: 39 bhp / 2.200 rpm
Speed: 97 km/h
Production time: 1927 – 1932
Production output: 4,849,340 (all A’s)
Curb weight: 1020 kg
Load capacity: 675 kg

Special:
– By switching production in 1927 from Model T to Model A, there were major delays.
– The A (also called A-Model Ford or the A, and A-bone among rodders and customizers) is a simple design with a L-Head 4-cylinder side-valve engine, Zenith carburettor, a three-speed manual gearbox (+ reverse), rear wheel drive and the traditional Ford suspension with transverse semi-elliptic leaf springs with Houdaille-type double-acting shock absorbers.
– The exterior has design cues taken from the Lincoln ("baby Lincoln"), heavily involved by Edsel Ford.
– The model was available in 30 body styles (icluding this Pick-Up Truck) and four standard colours, but not in black☺! Black however was an option.
– In contrast, the fenders were always painted black for manufacturing reasons.
– The Model A was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls with conventional clutch, throttle, gearshift and brake pedals.
– It was Fords first standard automobile with a new battery and ignition system, safety glass in the windshield and mechanical drum brakes on four wheels (cable operated).
– The A had a comfortable "dickey-seat" (in America "rumble seat"), in the earlier "coach period" intended for the footman. If it was not used, it could be folded shut.
– The 1930 and 1931 editions came with stainless steel radiator cowling and headlamp housings.
– The fuel tank was located in the cowl, between the engine compartment’s fire wall and the dash panel (with visual fuel gauge).
– The truck model was called Model AA. It had a longer chassis, strengthened suspension with steel instead of spokes wheels and dual tires for the heavier versions.
– The first station wagon was built by Stoughton Wagon Company in Stoughton, Wisconsin (USA) in 1919, mounted on a Ford Model T, because farmers (the first users) preferred them.
– Ford came with the first standard model "Woodie" based on a A Model in 1929. These body works were produced by Briggs in Detroit.
– In 1932 Ford surprised everyone by introducing a very cheap V-8 engine.
– The Model A formed the basis for the Russian car industry (Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod (NAZ/GAZ) in Nizhny Novgorod)
– These early station wagons had different names, like "depot-wagons" or "hacks".
– Outside of the USA, the Model A was produced in plants in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Soviet Union and the United Kingdom and sold all over the world.

Cameron 16HP Runabout 1911(1050860)

Cameron 16HP Runabout 1911(1050860)

Manufacturer: Cameron Car Company, Beverly, Massachusetts – U.S.A.
Type: 16HP Runabout
Engine: 2369cc straight-4 air-cooled
Power: 16 bhp
Speed: unknown
Production time: 1903 – 1914
Production outlet: about 8,000
Curb weight: 454 kg

Special:
– Cameron Car Company is remembered for their air-cooled vehicles and for relocating often.
– At first at Rhode Island from 1902 to 1906, then in Brockton, Massachusetts from 1906 to 1908, then in Beverly, Massachusetts from 1909 to 1915, Norwalk, Connecticut in 1919, and finally in Stamford, Connecticut in 1920.
– Like many people in the exciting early days of the automobile industry, James E. Brown of the Brown Textile Machine Company in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, decided to go into the automobile manufacturing business in 1901. Everett S. Cameron was hired to designed the new vehicle. Experiments were conducted, improvements were made, and in 1903, Cameron automobile production began.
– No cars were produced from 1915 to 1918 (the company entered bankruptcy).
– During their career, they would produce trucks, tractors, marine, and aviation engines as well as cars and boats.
– The Runabout is probably designed by one of its founders, Everett S. Cameron.
– It has a three-speed manual gearbox, one carburetor and rear wheel drive (shaft driven).
– They had several innovate creations that would become industry standards, such as left-side (ight-hand drive was the accepted practice) steering wheels (wheel steering i.s.o. a tiller), front-mounted engines, air cooling, a revolutionary rear-mounted gearbox, the gear shift was mounted on the steering column and torque tube drive.
– With a lack of patent applications in the early days of production (as was the case with many manufacturers), it is unclear "who was first".
– Several Cameron’s were used in competition, including hill climbs and dirt track events. One example even captured a half-mile world record in Cincinnati, Ohio. Another example became the first air-cooled car to reach the top of Mount Washington without requiring a stop.
– Only 15 survivors.
