Re: 3 bolt to 2 bolt distributor adapter

My thoughts exactly. It must not truly be a 59A, maybe a 39-41 24 stud?

Re: Carpenter's trunk lids (quality) 1940

Mike I ordered one on my dealer account for a customer, and had it drop shipped. Never heard back good or bad, but I'd imagine if the fitment was terrible he would have informed me.

Re: Cant find stock color tan front mat?

You’d want a 36 mat. If you use a later mat you’ll have to cut the hole for the parking brake and starter switch. The reproduction Benton grey 36 mat is very close in color to the 35 taupe mat

Re: Drivetrain Advice Needed

15/29 and a 3.54 are the clear winner for me, and if you have enough hp, then 15/29 with a 3.25. I live in the hills and you wouldn’t catch me dead with LZ gears in one of my cars. They are great for...
