Re: Speedway Vintage Wheels

Wait......what?
Wheel Smith wheels won’t take stock hubcaps?
I knew Wheel Vintiques would not, but not Wheel Smith. Bummer!

Re: 40/41 Ford Pickup Cab

Not a 37, but a 36.
It can be done.

Re: 40 Ford windnoise

Thanks!
Those DO fit up nice. I think that my door glass rises at an angle, creating the gap.
I’m not ready right now to pull the window frames and door panels to elongate the left mechanism...

Re: 40 Ford windnoise

How good do your vent glasses fit to the divider bars?
Mine are not cut correctly and I get some noise.
Tim (OlScrounger on the HAMB) set me straight on that.
KUBE may have some input on that...

Re: value on a 34 ford deluxe coupe

FWIW, I just sold a comparable(?) complete (less engine and trans) 33 coupe for $20K.
A lot of variables, though. What is good on yours might have been lacking on mine, and vice-versa.

Re: 40 heater head plumbing

Rather than cutting and inserting the nipple in the lower rad. hose, can you not use the truck pump (Drake) with the threaded outlet in the body?

Re: What year is this Pickup 40-47 ?

Here's mine. 41 with the deep 6 cyl front crossmember and transverse spring.
Your number correlates to 42 in the chart, What front spring(s) do you have, transverse or parallel?
