Written by Ken Altes

This old Ford truck has a good story attached to it, and it’s for sale. Notice the branches that grew into the grille. Dave Fisher has been in cars and trucks for his entire adult life, and has an amazing variety of vehicles for sale. His main line now is rehabbing and repairing heavy trucks. Great guy.

Old Austin: S. Congress Ave. Parts Store & T.O. Brooks’ 1938 Ford Deluxe Coupe

Written by Ken Altes

Brothers T.O. & M.F. Brooks owned this auto parts store on S. Congress Ave. — in the 1930s, it was called ‘San Antonio Highway.’ The Standard 1938 Ford Model 81B was a lot different than the Model 81A Deluxe, including a curvy grille, a more modern dash, instruments, an 85 hp (60 hp for the Standard Model 81B) engine, sliding gear 3 speed transmission, shaft drive and 3/4 inch floating rear axle.bcp-brooks-auto-partsbcp-truman-o-brooks-auto-parts-owner-5001-san-antoion-hwy-version-3
