Re: Vintique Auto Parts

well said PeteVS post #15. Old Fords wouldn't be restored if it wasn't for the suppliers that we far too often loathe, detest and bad mouth. I've bought lesser quality than sometimes hoped for but...

Re: 1936 Ford Coupe firewall

Thanks, everyone. I ordered the book this morning from a well-known Canadian vendor: George Moir Antique Auto Parts. He had them (and other parts I currently needed) in stock.
