Re: 1937 Ford coupe. Bill of sale

But it goes to the life history of the car. If we found service records for the third set of tires @ $12 per tire we would be downright giddy over having them.

Just be mindful of the other crud that may come loose.

I flushed the radiator on my '39 Buick with vinegar, then the soap from a dishwasher gel pack (they are all super-low sudsing).

Anyway -...

Re: Pouring Oil In '47 Fordor V8

Also consider the viscosity going in and the sludge that may be present in the valley.

Very unusual to find 1938/39 pickup goodies - shirts, pillows, bags, mugs.

Re: speedo cable

Showing my lack of experience here, but are these ends unique to Ford?

There are 120 inch cables, and cable-to-cable extenders available from numerous retail locations.

Re: Suggestions for shipping an early Ford transmission

Maybe I was lucky, but I received a 50 pound Buick transmission from Florida to NJ just a couple of weeks ago.

Some Styrofoam in a cardboard box and UPS delivered it to my door for about $60.
