Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

Mike,

Period VIN (engine/transmission numbers) were prefixed with the F for use in RHD chassis regardless of where the engine was manufactured (Dearborn, Walkerville, Ont., or Dagenham, U.K.) or...

Re: 32 Cabriolet repro parts?

Except for very early '32 cabriolets, the stainless channel and rubber on the A pillars is the same as later cabriolets and convertibles as TJ indicates. While I haven't checked lately, both Bob...

Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

I've had a raft of RHD period Fords and the only difference in the numbers stamped on the frames and transmission cases is the addition of the F to the prefix. The engine numbers themselves are in...

Re: Etching Ford Bugs on to glass.

As Ford's engineering drawings were made for the right side component and not for the left side when the components weren't functionally different side to side, flat glass such as door glass of the...

Re: Reconstructing History

Re: Cutting domes in 21 stud aluminum heads?

From what I see on ebay and HAMB, heads for dome top pistons with either 48 or 68 part number prefixes aren't scarce.

Re: Amount OF TIME TO BUILD YOUR CAR

My worst example was my avatar '32 station wagon which took the better part of 20 years thanks to an overseas assignment with Ford during that time and other self-inflicted delays. The end result...

Re: Best “paint” for aluminum heads?

Michael,


You would likely not know this, but back in 1932, Ford's instructions for painting radiators was to use thin paint and only paint the front of the core and the top of the tank. The...

Re: 33/34 body fixing query.

I know it sounds a bit odd, but that's what they used, just like through the rear of the scuff plate at the B pillar (at least on the fifteen I've owned over the years).

Re: 33/34 body fixing query.

From all the originals I've seen and taken apart, Roy's carriage bolts are correct, with the head on the outside. That included a Canadian '33 with the rest being of U.S. manufacture.

Re: Best “paint” for aluminum heads?

Painting aluminum heads defeats the advantage of their being made of aluminum, namely superior heat dissipation.

Re: Aluminum heads

Any cylinder head with Ford script was produced after early August, 1934 when it was added as a running change.

Re: Last years body on this years car

You previously did not mention the prefix. Now that we know that it is '18", that's one more flaw in the story as 18-500055 is the number of an engine produced in September, 1933.

Re: 1936 ford diff gear ratio ID

More often than not, the numbers I've found have been on the top flange, not the bottom one.

Re: '33-'34 Firewall body number plates info needed

40-700 being a Tudor sedan suggests that it was highly likely Ford built and therefore originally would not have any body number tag.

Re: Last years body on this years car

I think you need to shift gears in your thinking that the car 'may' have been one of the first '32 roadsters built. Assuming that the 5000060 number that you cite was that of its original...

Re: Last years body on this years car

Lots of leftover '31s sold and registered in 1932. Reminiscent of the period before the introduction of Model A in 1928, Ford dealers had nothing else to sell until early April, 1932 and even later...

Re: 35 intake manifold

The so-called "light" (Ford's nomenclature) type of manifold with the scalloped edges dates back into 1934 when it was released for production late in the '34 model year. It came from a different...
