Re: San Diego Big 3

We left on Saturday due to the pending rain. Covered most of it on Friday anyway. Saw lots of vacant spaces and this was allegedly the last one in San Diego. Last time for free hot dogs by the San...

Re: 1941 pickup with '40 deluxe dash

The pickups never came with a passenger car dash. There may be some indication that some late '41 pickups could have came with the column shift.

Re: Drake Sale:

It's always been very simple to me. If something is on "back order" with no date when it will become available, I move on to another supplier or retailer. This is a hobby and why get upset when...

Re: 1935 Radio Mounting

The bolt length looks right to me. It's possible that your firewall insulator has compressed more than normal due to it's age.

Re: 6 Volt dim headlights

Dan, first check all your grounds. There is a ground that goes from the headlight plug to the headlight bucket. Make sure it's a good clean ground. As a test also run a ground from the bucket to the...

Re: What year is this Pickup 40-47 ?

Interesting on the frame #. My '41 had the frame ID number start with 18-*******, but had the deep crossmember. The fuel line pulled out of the passenger side of the tank. The original ownership...

Re: Drake Sale:

A very accurate assessment Dave. Going to a V-8 National Meet is a good indication of what is happening. Lots of old Dearborn type cars, but very few if any fresh restorations. As things stop selling...

Re: What year is this Pickup 40-47 ?

There's a big difference in the frames between '41 and '42-47. Also a big difference in the front end sheetmetal. The '41 front end looks more like a '40 front end. '41 was the last year for the...

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

If somebody had the money to take them to court they might win based on the fact the Constitution forbids ex post facto laws.

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

Good old California charges you every year to have year of manufacture plates on your car. You pay the annual fee based on value of the car and then an extra fee to have the YOM plate.

Re: Vintique Auto Parts

Vintique may be the only game in town as they supply most of the V-8 vendors. I think Restoration Specialties has some of the stuff to do the glass channels , etc. but they do not sell kits to my...

Re: What did I just buy ?

The 48 and later F-1 series pickups had the frame # on top of the right frame rail near the front crossmember if that helps. I would think the bigger trucks would have it in the same place.

Re: Early speedometer with later transmission

The early cable will go right on the turbo 350 bullet. Why won't the cable go onto the '50 transmission? Most of those speedo gears and adapters are the same.
