Red face Re: 1941 Business coupe rear window garnish moulding

Yes I totally agree but they don't call out any of them being a "business coupe" like they on the others so is one of these a business coupe. I find this to be confusing.

Re: I have a bridge for sale

Re: Replace any tire over 6 years old.

I had the same thing happen to me on my 1 ton dually. Les Schwab Tire center. I guess $1500 for tires doesnt rate installation of new valve stems!!

Re: specialty plates and toppers?

Oregon allows just about any kind of vintage plates also. I found one original 1950 plate. Take it to DMV and they run the number to see if anyone else is using the other plate. If not you are in...

My Ford book actually calls them out as business coupes as compared to their other named cars such as custom deluxe coupes etc.

Re: Mind Your Own Business Coupes

My V8 Album book shows business coupes from 1947 through 1953 and stops with the 1953 models. It also shows the 1940 business coupe but not 1941, strange seems to me.
