A new car in the collection- thanks to 34fordy

I wanna thank Don (34fordy) on here. I am a sucker for 32-36 standard 4 doors. I complimented him on his car 3 or so years ago, and he mentioned he’d let me know if he ever decided to sell it and...

Re: What’s the application for this NOS vacuum part

It is a wiper motor switch. I am away from my parts books but look in the green book and it depicts photos in which you can identify. I "Think" that is 41-46 a pretty common part.

Re: Correct toe board 1936 pickup

The reproductions are based off of a 38-39 Board (they lack the starter switch hole and have a hole for a dimmer switch) Otherwise they fit, as I am using a NOS 38-39 in my 36 and I added the starter...

Re: Flathead V8 Distributor Slot in Cam shaft
