Re: 39 or 40 truck motor

Post war could be 59AB built '46-48 or an 8BA built '48-53, The '39 or '40 motor is probably 221 ci. I think the 59AB motor is the easiest upgrade. Remember there is no substitute for cubic inches.

I'm sure there were a lot of flathead parts in those piles.

Re: Adirondack Nationals

41 minutes up the road from me, ironically I've never been in all the years I've lived in the area, maybe I'll get there this year. Nice ride even if it's not flathead powered.

Re: Toyota chassis

If you want a pinto powered car, just look for a "SHAY" model A not that they didn't have problems either. I had a SHAY T-Bird, an ok car but I couldn't move the seat back far enough to drive it.

Re: 1952 Ford Customline 4dr Project

Got your work cut out for you, bumpers show up from time to time on this forum, eBay, Craigslist etc. I'd paint them black until you can find a better set.

Re: Mart takes Old Rusty to Prescott. FULL VERSION.

It popped up on my YouTube before you posted it here, I enjoyed watching the suspension working, glad you had fun. I didn't realize you had that many hot rods in England.

Re: Risk of using old (over 10 years) tires

Some states are kicking around the idea of including tire age in the annual inspection process, 10 years seem to be the number.

Re: New Member New car

Nice car, what are your goals for this? Do you want to restore it to look like the day it left the showroom?, or fix what need to be fixed and drive it as is.
I would probably try to find some trim...

Re: 36 Fuel Pump

Probably just a preference, my '41 has both pumps, the electric is on a spring loaded toggle, I hold it on for a few seconds until I hear the sound of the electric pump change then the car starts...
