Re: Value on a 1937 Cabriolet?

Thanks guys for info. I think I will just throw it in an auction and let it rip.

That way I will for sure know what it is worth, right?

Re: Adding old timey blinkers to my Ford

Ha, I say that about a lot of stuff. Swap meets or that auction site will get you back in business. I love the design of your blinker assembly.

FWIW: I did the following on my model A hot rod. It...

Re: Adding old timey blinkers to my Ford

Great question: That was the "lazy" part on this job because the car already had blinkers. They were operated by a toggle switch under the dash so I always forgot to use it and turn it off.

Re: Adding old timey blinkers to my Ford

In the department of corrections: It was actually Rustoleum brown that I used for this project. I have not had any problems with their hammer finishes before so my experience was probably a fluke.

I think I will go with Rustoleum from now on. They have a very nice copper color that would look great on heater boxes etc.

Re: 1937 Cabriolet with walls of white

I did not mean to come across as a smart *ss about the whitewalls, everybody has different taste and I respect other opinions.

Re: 1937 Cabriolet with walls of white

Good point, I think the car is holding up better than I am.

Noted on the bubble balancer, I used them when I was a mechanic many years ago. Worked great.:)

Forgot to say, your car looks great. Love all '37's, maybe because they are different or something.

Re: vega steering in 36

My '37 box is probably tired. I will consider rebuilding it but I not sure it will ever feel like a "modern" box. I like to keep the car original but drivability lifts the fun-factor.

1937 Cabriolet with walls of white

After building the dual exhaust and adding white walls it was a pleasure to back it out of the garage. The old exhaust was hitting the frame resulting in some vibrations. All that is gone and a...
