Re: replacing window glass 37 Woodie

It was a press fit originally with a rubber channel along the lower edge of the glass, not glued.

Re: 1936 Ford Coupe firewall

Jeff,


I doubt that the Foundation can sell it for $33.75 shipped to a Canadian address as the favorable U.S. media mail rates do not apply to cross-border shipments. Perhaps Ron has a friend in...

That's for the optional oil bath air cleaner.

Re: 1936 Ford Coupe firewall

Nor are the holes in the firewall made to attach them.

Re: Steady Rod Bolts

The challenge is somewhat different after the '33-'34s as those are not threaded into the rods themselves like those starting with the '35s, but rather are retained with hex nuts (and lock washers).

Re: 1933 transmisson floor cover

The '33-'34 truck version is entirely different and not adaptable to a passenger car.


The attachment holes in the pan for attaching it to the actual floor of the body are the same, four and V8. ...

Re: 1933 transmisson floor cover

Some turn up from time to time, but they would almost always be the V8 version and not the four-cylinder version. Further, I don't recall the latter ever being reproduced. It is the same issue as...

Re: 39 coupe floor mat

Ford was sort of fast and loose with using the word gray back in the day. There are numerous examples like this one where most of us would not have picked that word to describe the overall color...

Re: '34 Parts Identification

Michael,


Normally I could double check, but I lost my desktop to gremlins over the holidays and as result do not have the photos to draw the distinction between the passenger car and commercial...

Re: '34 Parts Identification

Michael,


You're right! But, it's for a windshield with a curved cross section which would make it for something other than '33-'34.

Re: '34 Parts Identification

I don't think that #1 is a '34 part, and I agree that the gusset plates in #2 go between the frame side rails and the front cross member and serve as radiator mounts. They are the '34 version; the...

Re: Tea Cup Commercial Rear Lamp

If all of the original '32 stainless steel tail lamps have the lettering protruding outward, as they do, how could someone conclude that the plain steel ones were stamped the other way around?

Re: 32 roadster Floor Board

Michael, likely I was the culprit.

How about those original prices to the dealers! All you'd need for the four pairs in front and two studs in the back corners of the mat would be twenty-two...

Re: 32 roadster Floor Board

There were no threads in the original stamped sockets. They're like a tiny tin can turned up side down with a hole in the bottom of the can as shown below. Rubber mats were retained with the...

Re: 32 Fordor Interior

The bending, with or without steam (let the cardboard dry thoroughly before installing if using steam), will go a lot easier if you do not fight the tensile strength of the upholstery fabric. Just...

Re: 32 Fordor Interior

Re: 32 Fordor Interior

Is the problem that the nails (brads) won't hold in the wood insert in the dog leg of the wheelhouse or that they pull through the foundation cardboard of the upholstery?

Re: Radiator Mount

Something is amiss. Regardless of whether the head of the bolt is up or down, they should pass through the same hole in both front cross member gussets, not forward in one and back in the other...

Re: Where to get a windshield frame seal for a 34 Phaeton

Re: lebaron-bonney-files-for bankrupcy

As it is only the small center section of the two-piece mat that you need, Michael Driskell had a bunch of those not part of two-piece sets. Perhaps he still does and perhaps one without the hole...
