    Hi everyone! I have an original 1931 Model A Instruction Manual. In very good condition. I found it in some of my Late Grandmothers things. I have no use for now it. I’m currently looking to pass it on to someone that could use it. Feel free to contact me with any questions at
    Thank You!

    Downloaded the Manual for the Model A. Page 27 is missing. DO you have that page you could send to me?

    The manual shown on your page is a reprint and not an original printed-in-1930 manual.

    Hi Miles,
    Actually, it appears as though pages 38/39 and pages 44/45 might be the missing pages. The reason I think 44/45 is that it is the next missing link in the website link sequence. See the 2 numbers before the .jpg below: (pages 36/37) (missing 38/39) (pages 40/41) (pages 42/43 (missing 44/45) (image page) (image page) (pages 50/51)

    So it appears as though your images, 2008/06/21.jpg and 2008/06/24.jpg are the missing upload images. If you still have those images, you won’t need to rescan those pages of the manual.. Hope this makes sense. Good Luck and thanks for the work you’ve already put into this.

    The body and fenders need to be completely removed to access the VIN number of the chassis/frame. That number is right behind the bolt that secures the front of the cowl to the frame. If you unfasten that bolt and try to remove the fender…you will bend the side rails under the body and might never get the doors to close and open again.

[5] [6] [7] Ford recognized sales this threat because it was the development and advised Henry Ford react to it, but he resisted. However, he saw the properties as useless as electric start (for an example) were gradual shift in the perception of the public from unnecessary luxury minimum requirements. (This trend will continue into the 21st century. [8]) The market share of the relaxation station wagon, eventually forced him to admit the passenger car market has taken a new model for Ford. When she finally decided to begin the development of this new model, the deaf, he is in the effort with a strong focus on the mechanical aspects (and design now for manufacturability (DFM), which had always assumed increase awareness and for the Model T production system ) was known. The development, even if ultimately successful, had a lot of bumps along the road. [9] For example, the die stamping of sheet steel, the company that Ford to new heights of development with the production system of the Model T made was something Henry has always been ambivalent, had led to success but feel that it is not the best choice for long life. It was decided that would be the new model (the model A) forged based on more than T. had ideas on how to improve the forging of DFM (to use today’s terminology), but not on. Ford engineers finally had to convince him to get back to his insistence, because the cost of producing a model overinflate the sale price [10].

      Thanks, I have been trying to find my owners manual to scan the missing pages, but it seems to have gone missing. If I find it or if someone is willing to scan the missing pages and email them I would be glad to include them.

    this looks really helpful. can you tell me if there is a pin or something similar holding the firewall/gas tank to the frame? we need to find out if the original engine number was stamped on the frame under the driver side fender since we think that number was used on the title and the current engine isn’t stamped with the same number. This is where previous research of my husband indicated it might be, if it was stamped at all. thanks.

    Just wanted to know if the manual for the 1930 is indicative of the 193? I just bought a 1931 and it didn’t come with the owner’s guide, and this sure does look like what I needed, so thanks very much for this info.
