Re: 36 Spare Wheel mount.

I think mine was original when I took it apart last month and there was no gasket, but adding one sounds like a great idea, keep the paint from getting scratched, not too think thought, don't want it...

Re: Enclosed car trailer

Someone mentioned their 250 Ford. Is that enough to tow most vehicles? I'm thinking of renting a 9 passenger van for an event and wonder if it will be enough to also tow an enclosed trailer with a...

Re: A contribution from the wife...

You didn't say if you bought her a new frosting piping bag. I'm sure she would not want to reuse that one.

Re: 1936 Rumble Seat Rain drain

Thanks Gary, so it goes around the back of the hinge. I should be able to remake that. I do also have the trunk lid stops like yours, I got them from Drake I think. One of the few things he had in...

1936 Rumble Seat Rain drain

A previous owner installed the rumble seat in the '36 5 window that I now own. As the back third of the Trunk rain gutters are cut out, how did Henry reroute the rain gutters in an original car with...

Re: Radial Tires

Be SURE to check the height of the Coker tires as compared to the ones you currently have.
I have 6.00 x 16 bias on the front and 6.50 x 16 bias on the back of my '36 5 window. I put the 6.50s on...

Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

Do the Australian chassis number, being RHD, have the "F" in them?

Interesting to see data plates from around the world. Would be fun to see others as well.

Thanks everyone.

Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

Just wondering if "F" is for Right Hand Drive or for "Foreign" Hearing from someone in a Left Hand Drive country with a car known to be original to that country would be appreciated.

Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

Looking forward to hearing from someone with a known "Foreign" left hand drive car to know what that chassis number looks like.

Re: '36 Cabriolet with an "18-F" prefix

Thanks, good to know. Silly me, I would have used an R instead of an F for Right Hand Drive.

For my '36, I had a similar mis-fitment problem with the stainless steel tank I got from Drake. I did get the adapter and no matter which way I turned it, even upside down, it did not fit. I would up...

Re: '36 5W quarter window water seal
