Re: 1940 Ford Paint

How serious are you about this? By that I mean how rich and authentic, and can you "see" vintage colors as they should be. The majority of Mandarin Maroons are made with oxide tints and toners....

Re: '40 coupe upholstery question

31 Sport Coupe, woodgrain or no?

I get a dime store paperback of unrelated info when I search here. Since I can't immediately find my Model A book I thought I'd ask here.

Re: 1937-39 std headlight lens numbers...?

It appears some of my vague assumptions were close, thanks.

Ford38, thanks for the lead. I may or may not get that book. My car is a really mild mod version. Stance and interior changed, was born...

1937-39 std headlight lens numbers...?

I'll start by saying the topic is mostly moot. I shaggin a 39 std tudor together and once in a while I find little details, like the numbers on the glass headlight lenses. Near the top there's a '3'...

Re: 1940 Right Rear Shock

It's 'shocking' how really nice this is. There's just a nice easy coat of gloss black on it, not 2,4 or 6 coats to make it something it isn't. The resistance increases or decreases perfectly when the...

Re: Do I really "need" twin carbs????

Yes. You're well up on compression and displacement which will really respond to better fuel distribution. Truth be told, while ultimate power will be higher the mid range control and accelleration...

Re: 40 Ford coupe rear height

Did this happen? Wondering how you made out, what parts you used, shock angles, etc. I'm doing a 39 std tudor and will be adding tube shocks to a lowered car. I haven't decided if I'll do a panhard...

1941 Ford radio

Here's a decent 41 Ford radio, looks to be Philco/Spartan based on knobs and face plate. It lights up but can't make it play. Price includes shipping in the lower 48.
