Re: 59 a Crankshaft front seal

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

If you could pick this up for $1000, so much the better. As Tubman said above, body work and upholstery....and it looks like the car needs those badly.....can put you "under water" pretty quickly.

Re: 47 Front seat

Kelly, I rebuilt my front seat as part of my reupholstering project. My springs weren't broken, but some of the "straps" were. I brazed them and things turned out pretty good!!
