Re: Distinguishing a '39 Deluxe from a '39 Standard

The side of the cowl (below the upper hinge) is where the big difference is between a standard and deluxe 39. The fenders are a different height, shape where attaching to the cowl.

Re: 40 Ford Hi Flow Thermostats

Sorry if this is hijacking the thread. I went for a drive today, about 70-75. My temp gauge shows 160. I don't know if I have thermostats or not (stock 39). Seems to be running great!

Re: 1939 floor mat, jute backing

Also, to hi-jack my own thread. I decided to replace what seem to be original toe boards. They are 5/8" plywood. Is this correct. The Bob Drake seals are 1/2" too long on the sides. (They came from...

1939 floor mat, jute backing

How much of the floor should be covered by the jute? Clear up under pedals, or is that too far? And how close to the edge (near door) works best? Also, I seem to recall a mention of another pad that...
