Re: Is Authentic Really Worth It?

Sorry about the confusion Bob. The serial number stated in my post is of the 18 series prefix, not the 52 or the 022 for the 60hp passenger cars. It was undoubtedly an 85hp car from the factory. I...

Re: Is Authentic Really Worth It?

I guess I see it quite differently. In the case of a '40 Ford the change to Deluxe is rather superficial. For the most part the grille assembly, hood, dashboard and instruments, door window...

Is Authentic Really Worth It?

I have a 5 window '40 Ford V8 that has a very nice body. I wanted to restore the car as it is the best candidate I've seen in years at the price. The chassis is numbered 530***** which is fairly...

Re: Tillotson

Re: Model A cowl lamps

I have two cars that regrettably have cowl lights. Thought they looked great as a teen, but now that so many As that never had them originally have punched holes in their cowl, they just look like...

Re: LA Roadster show

The guys you're talking about were on a corner spot at the parking lot end. Names? Eric and Dominic from Boyle Heights. I had them sell some of my best '32 stuff. They had it all. Very few low dollar...

Re: 1940 ford coupe seat bolt hole dimensions

Bitchen floor is the clincher here. Stock Ford is a rectangle just over three feet wide as I recall. This dimension is needed since I search for a seat for my Business coupe. On your own with this...

'40 Hood Hinges?

I've been buying all the '39-'40 hinges I find at swaps. Still have only found one set that seems to fit at all well and most of the others are total crap. They may be older repops or is it just what...

Re: Need fair price for good friend...

I'm with the gift side of this question. Trouble is that there is hardly a fixed price on wide fives and if they show up at low prices later, there can be a strain on the friendship, worth more than...

Re: TSB copyright expired?

Sure can't see that Ford is a friend to the old car hobby with their hostility to the use of original parts numbers. Changing my buying habits to another mark. Good luck: Fred A

I've Been Told?

Always a great way to start a question. I have a hydraulic brake rear that works well with '35 drums but the front didn't seem to like the offset of the '35-'36 spindles until I slipped on some...

Re: Bill Hirsch Black Miracle paint.

Re: What's wrong with this 39 Deluxe hood?

Re: '40 std coupe Q

There is a bit more than just the hood and grille. To complete the change the door window garnishes and the dash chrome trim may be the most important. Fall short of this you will be haunted with...

Re: Slingshot Manifold

H&H cleverly done. I wonder if Motor Mag writers do their own work or accept packaged articles from the industry? Putting my money on JWL and happy for it. Your mileage may vary. Fred A
