Re: Are there "early" and "late" distributor caps?

The 1928 thru 36 Chassis Parts Book shows only one style of cap for both the dome top and flat top distributor. 18-12105-B fits both style distributors.

Re: 1936 Ford pick up grill panel

Oldandtired, I am under the impression that the 36 pickup had an early and a late shield. I have shown both. There was an early version 36 (67-16554) and a later 36-37 version (77-16554).
