Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

I have a friend who grew up in LA in the 60s and remembered the Earl Shieb guy at the end of the paint job painting the tires in one smooth circlular stroke with tire black to cover the overspray.

Re: What did I just buy?

Anybody know the bolt pattern on the rear wheels? 28-29 should be worm gear, but can't tell from photo. Not sure if all AA's were the same. Thanks

Re: What did I just buy?

Bench seat is perfect. At these shows a lot of guys drive around in golf carts or all terrain contraptions. I like to keep it period correct and cruise in something more appropriate. Those of us that...

Thanks Guys! I'm also involved in the antique tractor/one lung engine scene. Always nice to have something to drive around the large show grounds at the August Lynden Wa meet. Haven't missed it in 34...

What did I just buy?

I have had 3 AA fords in the past 50 years. This one was pretty cheap for a runner and I thought it was 'cute' sorry.... I have 10 acres of woods and this was billed as a home built log skidder....

Re: Flathead Friday. New project. Rusty Crusty Flatty. VIDEO.

Mart... I love a dragged home flathead video. It never gets old. I once had a factory relieved military block on a navy shipyard welder. I have never gotten over the fact that I gave it away because...

Re: Lets play guess the home made tool. What does it do?

Re: What is the price of a rebuilt flathead??

Although we seem to have gotten off the subject here, I just want to add this little book by none other than the Ford Motor Company before we go back to discussion of what a flathead is worth. I...

Re: 1947 1 ton pickup

OK, I get the paint thing. Acrylic is a one stage thing then. If I put anything with ANY gloss over my bodywork, it's not a pretty site. Hats off to you guys who can pull this off.

Re: 1947 1 ton pickup

I know the bed is the tray, but what is a 2pack? And original wood in the tub? Is the tub the floor of the tray? It must have been in very sound condition when it arrived in Aus, huh?

Re: 1947 1 ton pickup

Well, no luck at all. Some have slotted 1/4-20s and most are a bunch of missmatched fasteners. At least 1/2 of them are sheared off. Maybe the ford bolt guy (Ray?) would be able to fix you up. Oh...
