Re: 1938 Ford Pickup wheels/tires

Another thing to consider is the condition of the wheels. Are they nice and smooth or pitted slightly? Does it look like the bead will seal and hold air? I have a '39 pickup. I'm running the radial...

Re: Anyone know what year and model they are

Kind of a rare item and model of V8 Ford?

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

I got to know Pat from EFV8 Club national meets. He was a nice guy. He was a familiar face at every V8 meet I attended.

Re: 1936 ford pickup

Congratulations. You'll enjoy that truck. You don't find old Fords like that where I live. I'd be excited too.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

You choose wisely. I encourage you to continue to look for a 46-48 Ford. You'll find one that is ready to drive for a good price. The market is soft and these 46-48 fords are affordable to get into...

This idea is probably the only good chance.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

Bare with me here. I would pick it up for $1500.00. Then I would part it out. I would then take my proceeds and purchase a '47 sedan in a little better shape. I think the proceeds from selling the...

Re: Vapor lock or not ?

Make sure your ignition system is operating at 100% efficiency. A weak coil, bad wires, a distributor that needs rebuilt or timed can cause you a lot of starting problems.

Do you have an electric...

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

No. Side shift transmissions are very easy to come by. I have several lying around.

There are also many, many 1946-1948 Fords out there. It would probably be worth while to pass on this project...

Re: Anyone own a 1966-1967 Fairlane 500?

Nice looking Fairlanes. I don't know why but the 2 door hardtops appeal to me. I've never driven one but I can imagine a 390/4 speed car would be wild.

Re: Are Mustangs still collectible?

I'm picking up a nice 351W soon from a guy who is giving it to me. It's an early 1970's 351. I installed an aluminum 4 barrel intake, 4 barrel carburetor and long tube headers with dual exhaust years...

Re: Are Mustangs still collectible?

What structural upgrades were on these mustangs with the factory 390 option? If a '67 will accept a 390 it should accept a 351. I also wonder how much more weight a 351 is compared to a 289? The bore...

Re: Are Mustangs still collectible?

I've thought about upgrading my engine from a 289 to 351 Windsor. But then I think it's not necessary. It'd be fun though.

Anyone own a 1966-1967 Fairlane 500?

As I was recently searching for old Fords for sale online I noticed I don't see many 1966-1967 Fairlane 500, two door hardtops in XL's or GT's for sale?

Did many of these cars survive? Recently we...

Re: Are Mustangs still collectible?

Thanks for opining everyone. I have a '67 coupe. I've owned it for about 18 years. I did a lot of work to it, floors, torque boxes, rear quarter panels, truck drop offs, outer wheel wells on rear and...

Are Mustangs still collectible?

Mustangs used to be a car that folks bought, restored and collected. It seems like unless it's a special car, fastback or related, nobody wants them. I believe the market for any of our early Fords...

There is a car very similar on Instagram for sale right now. The owner is threatening to chop it if it doesn't sell. I laugh at those ads where they threaten to chop a car if they can't sell it. Why...

Re: Vlaue of a 390

I noticed the intake looked like a big chunk of cast iron. I pulled an intake off of a 400 Ford engine once and replaced it with an aluminum 4 barrel intake. It was a sum bitch to lift off the engine.

Re: Cleaning the underbody with Purple Power

Very nice car Ken. You have a lot of junkers therefore I think you should consider adopting me. I'm self sufficient and require very little, other than old Fords. Think about it and get back with...
