Re: 1951 customzed convertible

Good going Frank, that's a nice one and he didn't go overboard. My 51 sedan was at that convention in 1999, it had a new owner then but I since have it back.

Re: Oil Leak

Check your oil cap and remove that stuffing. I had a new cap and the stop tabs wern't bent so when the cap went on it was closed off and built up pressure forcing oil out the rear main.

Re: center hood strip on 51 Ford Crestliner

What he shows is the correct 51 ornament, the rocket ship one must have been an accessory.

Re: Fuel Spark Arrestor in bottom of Tank, removal

you might be able to get a small but long forcepts thru the opening or even a hooked wire clothes hanger if you can see it. Use a small, powerful penlight to look through the gas opening.

Re: 30 or 31 Cab

Jim is right, I had one but could only stand driving it a couple of miles because I am 6-2 and leg room was too tight, just too dangerous to drive being a tall guy.

Re: wide bed box value

I think you could "section" coupe/ roadster fenders and mount them on your widebed, the coupe fenders are around an inch or so wider that the wide bed.

Re: chirp, chirp, chirp - Update

Sounds like it could be the spring plunger at the end of the camshaft. remove the front cover and clean out the oil hole in the casting, clean and oil the spring plunger and it should be ok.

Re: 31

I have a 29 Special coupe and being 6 ft. 3" tall it has more headroom than the 30/31 but is a little narrower in the floor space, I think it has a more antique look than the 31 but I like them both.
