Re: Top three Ford Products, '32 - '53

It's easier to pick the bottom three: '38, '41-50, and '52 Fords (yes, that's lots more than three).

Re: 1936 Coupe

Classtique may well offer very good or better upholstery, but according to their website, they offer nothing after the Model A era, which does not extend into 1936, at least in North America.

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

Period VIN (engine/transmission numbers) were prefixed with the F for use in RHD chassis regardless of where the engine was manufactured (Dearborn, Walkerville, Ont., or Dagenham, U.K.) or...

Re: 32 Cabriolet repro parts?

Except for very early '32 cabriolets, the stainless channel and rubber on the A pillars is the same as later cabriolets and convertibles as TJ indicates. While I haven't checked lately, both Bob...

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

I've had a raft of RHD period Fords and the only difference in the numbers stamped on the frames and transmission cases is the addition of the F to the prefix. The engine numbers themselves are in...

Re: Etching Ford Bugs on to glass.

As Ford's engineering drawings were made for the right side component and not for the left side when the components weren't functionally different side to side, flat glass such as door glass of the...

Re: Cutting domes in 21 stud aluminum heads?

From what I see on ebay and HAMB, heads for dome top pistons with either 48 or 68 part number prefixes aren't scarce.

Re: Best “paint” for aluminum heads?

Re: 33/34 body fixing query.

I know it sounds a bit odd, but that's what they used, just like through the rear of the scuff plate at the B pillar (at least on the fifteen I've owned over the years).

Re: 33/34 body fixing query.

From all the originals I've seen and taken apart, Roy's carriage bolts are correct, with the head on the outside. That included a Canadian '33 with the rest being of U.S. manufacture.

Re: Best “paint” for aluminum heads?

Painting aluminum heads defeats the advantage of their being made of aluminum, namely superior heat dissipation.

Re: Aluminum heads

Any cylinder head with Ford script was produced after early August, 1934 when it was added as a running change.

Re: Last years body on this years car

You previously did not mention the prefix. Now that we know that it is '18", that's one more flaw in the story as 18-500055 is the number of an engine produced in September, 1933.

Re: '33-'34 Firewall body number plates info needed

40-700 being a Tudor sedan suggests that it was highly likely Ford built and therefore originally would not have any body number tag.
