Smile Re: Anyone received their GAV Deep Socket

I received mine. It's well made and will be a critical tool in my "A" tool collection. I have no reason to believe that if you've put your name on the "I'm interested" list that you'll have one....

Re: Roadster pickup as found and done

I love these re-birthings! When you see a relic like you did you really have to see the diamond in the rough and you sure did! Nice.

It's been a while since I posted something, thought I'd get back on fordbarn and share a few photos. I wrote a brief story about my 1931 Deluxe Tudor that I found on eBay on a Friday in March, 2007...

Re: original or reproduction hood latch??

Tom, ever see an ORIGINAL hook shaft end with a solid washer-like, nail head-like, cap on it? Privately, when I purchased a set of four of these, I'm being told that they're late '31 latches and I...

That's a good comparison, it does look like nail head, makes it impossible to remove the hook/shaft from the latch body.

Re: Engine/Frame numbers .. possible stamping goof or ...?

With the two numerals on my engine and frame transposed, 57 and 75, I'm thinking that the guy who stamped the frame goofed so the two numbers don't reflect an engine that was not original to the car...
