Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

I'll help bump the average back up. 81 plus and my first car was a '32 Ford (surprise, surprise) Model B standard coupe for $50. It was comparable to the one on another recent thread herein, only...

Re: 48 Allard on eBay with a Ford Flathead V8

Heresy, but the Cadillac powered Allards had a lot more umph.

Re: Original 1932 Standard Coupe up for auction

My first car was a $50 B standard coupe like this one back in 1955 and I've had three more of them since. I'm with Robert; I like them just as they were built.

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

Nope, originally the pan was on the bottom of the fender flanges, not on top.

Re: Bob Drake fuel sending unit / customer service

Wait a minute. Before throwing rocks at Bob Drake, once your "shop" altered the sending unit, all bets were off. Any warranty anywhere does not cover parts that have been altered by the customer or...

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

You're best bet is to start with '32 phaeton/roadster hinges which are available as reproductions. They share the same hinge pin as the roadster pickup hinge. Cabriolet hinges may look similar...

Re: 1934 pickup toe board

There's one on ebay at the present time going off shortly. A photo is attached, but I believe the listing to be in error and the pan listed is for a '33-'34 four-cylinder passenger car. The...

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

:(The four part numbers, B-76600, 76601, 76602, and 76603, for the roadster pickup hinges do not show up in the '32-'34 body parts catalogs as being used on any other body type. Further, the catalog...

Re: 39 coupe interior

"As close as possible" might end up being custom dyed hides, which are available, although likely more expensive than off-the-shelf hides. Sometimes it is the only way to get the color and grain...

Interesting; more Buicks than Fords in that footage, surprisingly.

I had my right eye done last month; the difference will be both noticeable and appreciated.

Re: Rear brake rods Model B

Dick,

It sounds like the old rods that you have are for a Model A whose brake rods had that raised ring. Original '32 brake rods did not have that raised ring which is incompatible with the...

Re: Caged Nuts needed

Re: Grease fitting size for 1937 ford spindles

Don,

And to muddy the water further, I have noticed that some, but not all, NOS '32-'34 spindles have 1/4-28 threads whereas I've only encountered the 1/8 pipe threads on all of the spindles...
