Re: No Lebaron Bonney, now where do I order?

There's case reference listed on the other thread on this topic. You can file on line through the federal bankruptcy court for Massachusetts.

Re: LeBarron Bonney

Based on the dates in that article, I must have been among their very first customers for a non-Model A Ford interior and top. It was for a '32 deluxe roadster and it was 1964. I recall Jack...

Re: misleading ads on the barn

Add NORS and its ever-expanding definition to that list and perhaps the most misused word of them all, 'classic".

misleading ads on the barn

While I understand the site's policy regarding limiting the responses to ads to personal messages or phone numbers, if listed, it is imperfect in that it relies solely on the accuracy of the seller...

Re: 1935 Ford Mechanical Brake Parts Availability

It's Driskell (thirdgenautomotive.com). Michael can help you with NOS brake parts. Given the importance of their function and the questionable metallurgy of replacement parts, I strongly recommend...

Re: Wiring help needed

Since both the fours and V8 are, strictly speaking, flatheads, you might not have misled some of the responders into thinking that you have a four (implied in your initial question and original in...

Re: 1932 Ford Horns

As I said earlier, I am far away from being able to measure mine, so your best bet is to ignore me for now.

Re: 33-34 hand crank bar length

Sheldon,


If your crank handle socket has a square opening, for a '33 passenger car the extension used (40-14070-B) was 17 1/4". The 17 3/4" version (40-14070-C) wasn't released until November,...

Re: 1932 Ford Horns

Correct; except for the orientation of the holes for attaching the trumpet to the center section the '32 trumpet is otherwise identical in all respects to the Model A trumpet. In other words, the...

Re: Issues with the Rumble lid 32 Ford Coupe

Nope, the only thing close is the seat riser for the rumble seat bottom cushion and it is noticeably larger than the 'skinny' piece in question. There was no dam used on '32s and interestingly...

Re: Lebaron Bonney Bankruptcy

Clastique has no offering for anything after 1931 so they are hardly another option to the audience on this side of the barn.

Re: 1932 Ford Horns

Tom,


That's correct.


Obviously I have a bunch of the correct trumpets, but they're all 1,600 miles away from where I'm at presently. Sorry.


I'm assuming that unlike the diameter...

Re: Varnishing Woodie

phillipswanson,


?????? Lots of good information about varnish and other finishes on the Rick Mack website, but no mention whatsoever of McCloskey spar varnish.

Re: Varnishing Woodie

My avatar is finished with McCloskey "Man O War" spar varnish and the finish today is as good as when it was applied forty-some years ago. Beware of that '50s blond-television-console look that some...

Re: 34 Brake lever question

Raise the button as far as it will go and you will observe a pin near the bottom of the shank of the button. Drive the pin out, pull the button off the rod, pull the rod out from the bottom, and...

Re: screw size 32 floor boards

Re: Repop headlight lens issue

Vintique's supplier blew it when they made the mold and a complete absence of anything resembling quality control has reined since. Send it back with an appropriately irate note.
