Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

As for the hose sizes, napa sells adapters which are short hoses to change the inside diameter of a hose that you’re using.

Re: Standard or Deluxe Model?

I don’t think 35s had a banjo wheel option. Boy I wish I had one of those grilles hanging there. Sure look a lot nicer than mine.

Re: Vintage stock car

Looks like the other side got the T bone, love to see it back to its racing glory.
Any pictures of it at the races back then?

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Dealers are getting worse that parts houses, they wonít stock anything after a certain year. Around ten years old forget it.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

My Mom had a 67 mustang when I was in high school, I loved to borrow it! I was a little hard on it though, snapped a motor mount on a hard take off from a stop sign once.

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Sometimes the parts are there, but the kid behind the counter has no idea what a 12volt externally resisted coil is, unless the computer shows him a part number.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

You know they had a smoke machine in the trunk pointed at the tire from a hole in the wheel well.

Re: Is this a bad idea?

“To the moon Alice!

Re: As Promised Another Brochure, Engine Exchange 1934

Wow, $49.50 installed! Of course in the height of the depression, that was a lot of money.

Looks like Clark Griswolds brother in law Eddie should buy that one. Or trade his house for it.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

When I did my rear spring on my AV8, I had a new spring, but drive in new pins with a tool/hammer. Not the best way, but spring was warm and I put bushings outside at -30, so it went ok.
