Drake Boards

I bought the Drake boards but am a bit put off by the Drake label that screams repop from the bottom side, along with the plating which may be a plus but calls for some paint. I got some original...

Re: '40 Deluxe Grille Side Mismatch Etc..

If the glass is near correct, and the HAMB link is also correct, then either count will be close to correct. Since I have access to a lot of parts, and other '40 parts seem so common, going to put...

'40 Deluxe Grille Side Mismatch Etc..

The grille sides on my '40 don't match. One side has fewer vents than the other. The window glass shows an 11-39. Outside of a which ever I find first, which would be more correct? Engine and frame...

Re: Model B to V8 transmission adapter

Steering Geoffery away from the V8 trans toward the native B trans makes good sense in several ways. First if his oil pan has not yet been butchered, he can more easily take advantage of the rigid...

Re: 40 coupe window frame

The difference is with the window garnishes, door handles + cranks and trim. Doors are the same for '40. The inner structure of '40 doors prevents the one piece glass of earlier doors from rising....

Re: 40 Ford 1/2 ton

My '41 pickup had a factory column shift. It started as a six cylinder. Hard to imagine a half ton of anything in that small bed. Makes me think that half ton was very optimistic. Good Luck: Fred A

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...

6 to 12 For 2 brush Fords?

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
