Re: Rear frame horn cover and more !!!!!

Sheldon,

Those with no wire hole on the right side obviously came from LHD cars, but the presence of the hole on the right side could also mean that it came from a LHD car with two tail lamps. A...

Re: Rear frame horn cover and more !!!!!

Keith,

Thanks for the photos.

In all three of your examples, they appear to be of somewhat early production in that there are only round holes where the covers attach to the rear fenders. ...

Re: re 34 Cabriolet Sun Visors

I believe that your previous impression is correct. There is no listing in the '34 body parts catalog for sun visors for a cabriolet nor do they appear among the ten or so Ford archives photos that...

Re: Rear frame horn cover and more !!!!!

David,


Be fair, anyone looking at the reproduction LHD step pad brackets might easily assume that they were originally castings rather than forgings.


Sheldon,

The frame horn cover that...

Re: 1932 K Member

Tim,


They weren't discarded, the legs were added with rivets in plant and at dealers via a service campaign (recall) with rivets if the dealer had the capability or if not, with bolts, etc. In...

Re: floor board

There was a cover that rotated to provide access to the hole on the '32 #1 floorboard (except in very early production), but it was phased out late in the model year, presumably as a cost savings. ...

Re: 1932 K Member

There's no engine-based difference in '32 center cross members. Where that idea may arisen is from the fact that the center cross member changed numerous times during the '32 model year. Initially,...

Re: Correct carb for 33-34 pickup

Given the two you list, I assume that you are referring to the carburetor on a four-cylinder engine. If that's the case, it was a Zenith.

Re: Do 33-34 pickup trucks have rear view mirrors?

They all had an outside mirror attached to the upper door hinge, same as the '32s. There was no inside mirror, just like the station wagons.

Re: 34 3W door window/risor questions

Do you really want to use that dirty, rusty riser mechanism without cleaning it up first? I hope not as it will affect the operation of the window if you do.

Re: 1932 original tailpipe

Original clamps are about as hard to find as the pipes, especially the long one. No one is reproducing the pipes at the present time to my knowledge, at least not with the original mandrel-formed...

Re: Question about 1934 Ford hubcaps

The only non-stainless capped Ford versions were the service parts made during WWII, which were painted black with a painted red V8 on the face.

Re: 1932 original tailpipe

It consisted of two pipes that joined at the opening in the rear cross member which were clamped together and held in place by the attachment of the clamp to the front lip of the cross member. The...

Re: Seat springs: paint or no?

Why wouldn't you paint them given they are exposed to airborne moisture? You'd sure kick yourself when the rust bled through the upholstery fabric if you didn't. For what it is worth, they were...

Re: Incorrectly mounted Spare Wheels on 1932-1935 Fords

I think you missed the point. Is it appropriate to use photos to demonstrate something incorrect in terms of originality that has other items in the photo which are also incorrect without so noting...

Re: Incorrectly mounted Spare Wheels on 1932-1935 Fords

Kevin,

If you use the V8 Club's judging forms at local meets, there's a standard deduction of 2 points for the incorrect stems and 3 points for the incorrect caps, which usually accompany the...

Re: Incorrectly mounted Spare Wheels on 1932-1935 Fords

Trevor,
You seem to be missing a larger issue given that the majority of the photos of spare tires that you have posted have the incorrect (non-original) valve stems. That suggests all five (or six...

Re: Incorrectly mounted Spare Wheels on 1932-1935 Fords

Perhaps a greater sin, given the location, is that it is not a Ford original equipment wheel. That plus what appears to be two different model year components (trim ring - '35 plus and locking...

Re: Question on 1936 Rumble mat fit

Does it have padding like the original? If not, that would affect fit.

Re: 32 front brake drums info

They are useful and somewhat in demand, but only if not worn beyond the wear limits on the drums. Notwithstanding, the number of surviving usable front hub/drum assemblies far exceeds those for the...
