Re: Warning - Sophisticated Scammer Trolling the Want Adds

Just a reminder, area codes mean nothing. My daughter still has a Michigan area code even though she’s in Tennessee.

Re: 41 ignition switch light

The Henry Ford Museum used to display Mr. Ford’s sedan. The Rouge plant did a refit of the front sheet metal in order to make it resemble a postwar car. I believe that was a ‘41 as well.
