f there is a heaven for Model A restores, I think I found it nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the small town of Luray, Virginia. The owner, John Phillips, proudly gave me a complete tour of his restoration facility. He and his staff manage multiple projects simultaneously from simple maintenance to full frame off restoration and modifications. They do restorations for fine point judging and have won many national awards but they also do modification for folks that just what to drive their cars! One of the cars is used like a laboratory to test improvements and display all of his modifications to the fuel, electrical, instrumentation and lubrication systems. One of his cars has a 6 volt to 12 volt converter, completely out of sight, that powers a GPS very cleanly mounted by the mirror – I want one! Besides John’s technical experience, he is a tremendous source for new and use parts both restored and unrestored. You can visit his web site and enter into his data base the part you are looking for and if it comes available, he will contact you.
