Re: 1936 Vacuum Assisted Brakes

Standard equipment on big Lincolns starting with the 1932 models. A good thing too, as they weighed nearly twice that of a Ford.

Re: 1932 Windshield Frame

Personally, I have found the frames of NC Industries in Pennsylvania to be superior, but I do not have first hand experience with reproduction '32 cabriolet frames.

Re: rubber front floor mat

Mike,


As JSeery indicates. our Mr. West (not his real name) is a frequent thread starter. Of late into Hupmobiles and John Dillinger's preference for them.

Re: rubber front floor mat

JMFL36,


You might try Michael Driskell at Third Gen Automotive in McMinnville, TN for the ones you are missing. Some of them are made of 'unobtainium', however.

Re: Standard or Deluxe Model?

The same goes for '36 grilles. Great Ford archives photo; a classic example of a picture equaling a thousand words. Thanks for sharing it.

Re: Original 1935 parts help

Don,

Your drawing is enlightening with regard to the BB version's outer skin as I had understood them to be painted black rather than cadmium plated. That opinion was based on several examples...

Stant made the '32 and up non-locking gas caps, non-vented through the '35 models and the vented version starting with the '36 models.

They are the same for phaetons and roadsters through the '36 model year.

Re: Steering box adjustment

Sounds like it could be a '35 worm gear as Andy wondered. I do not know if you could change your sector gear to the '35 version given the different construction of the steering gear boxes. Sorry.

Re: Steering box adjustment

elwood,


How "different looking" was the new worm gear? In other words, how was it different? Larger at the ends of the gear perhaps?

Re: 1932 Radiator distance?

Or with the hinge brackets in place on the radiator and the cowl top, the length of the stainless steel hinge was originally exactly 32".
