Re: 1936 Steering Box Replacement

I went through this exact process about two years ago. It's A LOT of work, but well worth the effort. That '37 box is practically like having power steering!

Does your car have mechanical brakes...

Re: Any idea what tis frame is?

I could be totally off base, but didn't the Zephyr have a hypoid rear-end? :confused: This one looks conventional to my eyes, though at the angle it may be impossible to tell for certain.

Re: '49 Lincoln Cosmopolitan

I can’t provide any tips or buying advice for a Lincoln of this sort, but they look gorgeous. I’d welcome one in my collection! That 337 V8 should be reliable and torquey. If the car checks out...

Re: Broken Glass Again

What TJ said. Please provide more details. Is the window unduly difficult to roll up or down? If so, something could be cocked/binding as the mechanism operates, placing stress on the glass itself.

Re: Three-Blade Fans

Yes, Tubman, if you could share that info I'd really appreciate it. I'd like to make certain the bearings in the fan I'm eventually going to run are as good as possible. Also, do you have any...

Three-Blade Fans

I know earlier Ford fans and hubs are serviceable. You can disassemble them relatively easily or pull the little drain plug to fill them with oil, but is there any way to service the later 1950 and...

Re: Borg-Warner Overdrive

Thanks for the info, Mac! When it's time to get new transmission parts I'll be giving you a call.

Re: What have I done?!

Thanks, 19Fordy! You certainly make valid points about buying one of these cars already completed. But for me it's as much about the journey as it is the destination.

Not that this Crestliner is...

What have I done?!

Perhaps against my better judgement something followed me home the other day... I picked up a 1951 Crestliner!

Cosmetically, the car is rough, but overall itís very solid and, more importantly,...

Re: Columbia Overdrive

Judging by the attached pictures, your car is STUNNING! In fact, it looks almost too clean to drive. Love the seatbelts and there's nothing wrong with running a '39 and up transmission for easier...

Re: Columbia Overdrive

The Highwaymen Movie

Have you guys seen "The Highwaymen" yet? It's a new movie that came out late last month. If you have a Netflix subscription I HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching it.

Re: Help identifying NOS Flathead

It's hard to believe NOS engines are still out there... maybe because every core I've been through has been a greasy or rusty mess! I'd love to get my hands on something like that, such history.

Whenever I drive my old Ford, thoughts of snapping an axle shaft always float around in the back of my mind. No, I NEVER do burnouts or squeal the tires, but these parts are OLD and the idea of...
