Re: 1934 pickup

Al's28/33 set up is as original. The two holes in the battery cover plate weren't for attachment purposes, but rather to facilitate it being placed on a hook on a conveyor line for dip painting as...

Re: 34 coupe floor info please

Unlike in '32 closed cars, cabriolets, and convertible sedans, no mat or carpet pieces along the sides of the front seats were used originally on '33-'34s.

Re: 34 coupe floor info please

The deluxe closed cars had carpeting in the rear compartment. The standard closed cars and open cars had mats in the rear compartment. The mats originally had a jute backing (bad idea as it absorbs...

Re: Plugging Away on The 32' Roadster

As Sheldon indicates you have a pair of spark plug wire conduits which will work just fine along with the distributor and coil in the photos in your post #26.

Re: Plugging Away on The 32' Roadster

Model A front shock arms are similar to the '32 version except at the ball end as the type of link to the spring perch differed considerably. On the A arm there is a flange surrounding the base of...

Re: '34 Windshield Glass Replacement

The biggest part of the job might be removing the outer weatherstrip, especially if it very old. It must be done in any event to access the screws that attach the lower part of the frame to the...

Re: Plugging Away on The 32' Roadster

The '32-'36 versions' attachment arms are almost twice as long and are welded to the tubes vertically and then bent over 90 degrees where the holes are for the intake manifold bolts. If you happen...

Re: wiring harness choices

Maybe for '37, but not 100% for some of the other of his harnesses. I favor Rhode Island Wiring.

Re: Plugging Away on The 32' Roadster

While it is understood that you are not restoring the car to as-built condition, along with what Mart mentioned, the spark plug wire conduits in your photos are post-'36 versions.

Re: 1932 Pickup

Mart's and Krylon32's comments cubed. Nor is it a part of any other '32 vehicle type, passenger car, commercial vehicle, or big truck.

Re: Really Cool Old & New Stuff

As jimTN idicates, the radiator is NORS, not NOS. You could put it to good use on your roadster and hopefully have a straight fin and tube original for your coupe project.

Re: original convertible top color on a 1937 Ford convertible sedan

The LeBaron Bonney T-14 material was an accurate replica of the original drab material used on all U.S. '32-'39 deluxe open cars, such as your convertible sedan.
