At the 2021 Iowa Model A Day Tech Session, Don Fick gave a presentation on parts and tools carried by him and his son, David, on driving tours. He distributed a handout of a spreadsheet he created to keep track of all the parts and tools he carries so he doesn't have to go hunting for them when his or a fellow Model Aer's car breaks down for some reason. Do a Google search for "Model A Ford basement" and you will find a link and description of an Eckler's product (not available) so that you can build your own basement for your Model A Tudor.
Here is a PDF version of Don's spreadsheet. Double-click on the image to open the full PDF.
