Re: ford blue

One-shot sign paint has an excellent match for the original Harding blue used by originally by Ford. Their name for it is reflex blue and their item number is 155-L.

Re: White residue on Model B fuel pump

I'm not familiar with POR 15, sorry. I use metal prep (phosphoric acid) and yes, rinse with water and dry thoroughly with a hair dryer or air hose.

Re: White residue on Model B fuel pump

It will clean off. Disassemble it down to the castings and dip them in metal prep briefly. Only briefly as the metal prep will eventually attack the zinc as well as the white zinc oxide that you...

Re: 34 pickup wood question

All of the wood under this '32 bed is original and is oak. I think Ford used hard woods indigenous to the area around Iron Mountain, MI interchangeably as available drawing the line at station wagon...

Re: Upcoming Auction, Some nice V8 Ford's

They were basically standard models with rumble seats as standard equipment (which were optional on standard coupes). Also unlike their standard coupe counterparts, safety glass all around was...

Re: Lowering 32 roadster top

Leave the rear curtain attached when lowering the top.

Hopefully you have the two original rubber bumpers on the upper back panel on which the rear window rests when the top is down.

Re: Lowering 32 roadster top

There were no top folding instructions included with the Ford open cars until the '35 model year. When you fold a '32 roadster top you need to pull and fold the top material all the way back so that...

Re: Upcoming Auction, Some nice V8 Ford's

And it appears to still have its original landau irons, which often are long gone.

Re: 1932 Medium Maroon

The original color is slightly muddy, unlike the '36 light fast maroon and the '40 Mandarin maroon. The latter two likely avoid the brown tone by being produced with a bit of gold. (in paint and...

Re: Where does a 32 dome light hook into harness

It's the same as an early V8. If you have the early B wiring harness there should be a black wire with a blue tracer coming out of the harness to connect to the long wire of the same colors coming...

Re: Model B Fuel Pump HYGRADE fp-159

There's nothing rare about '32-'34 four-cylinder fuel pumps except in the minds of some sellers. They are simple to rebuild, but it sounds like you need a different interface between the diaphragm...

Re: Rear frame horn cover and more !!!!!

Sheldon,

Those with no wire hole on the right side obviously came from LHD cars, but the presence of the hole on the right side could also mean that it came from a LHD car with two tail lamps. A...

Thanks for the photos.

In all three of your examples, they appear to be of somewhat early production in that there are only round holes where the covers attach to the rear fenders. ...

Re: Rear frame horn cover and more !!!!!

David,


Be fair, anyone looking at the reproduction LHD step pad brackets might easily assume that they were originally castings rather than forgings.


Sheldon,
