Re: 1940 Ford Deluxe X member sheet metal original thickness

I have a very original '40 Pickup that came from Illinois.
Chassis # 18539 9xxx which would indicate a fairly early example.
It does not have the reinforcing plate.

Re: 1939 Standard coupe grille panels

Those side panels look to be in reasonable condition.
Not a bad price either.
I would buy them and then look for the 2 curved " hockey stick " s/s trim pieces and the 4 small s/s trim pieces for...

The remainder was leatherette dyed to match the...

Re: What is it about 1939 Standard Fords?

There are 3 sets of stainless pairs varying in length.
They come up on e-bay occasionally.
You can trim some 38 std grille pieces to suit as well.

Re: 1939 Standard coupe grille panels

Ford called them hood side assemblies.
PN 91A-16618/19
We called them side vents.
Should be relatively easy to get a pair from a Ford barn member or e-bay.

Re: How Manny Country's are on Ford Barn

Quite a few 39 coupes went from New Zealand to Australia in later years - it was a model they didn't make over there.

Re: '39 Oregon Plate

Just get those rear bumper over-riders turned over and you'll be good to go.
Or are my tired old eyes deceiving me.

Re: 39 coupe interior

I'm doing my 39 deluxe sedan in vinyl.
The seat and backrest panels will be the same colour as the rest but will have a slightly different texture to give the appearance of leather.

Re: Norway members?

Scammers often use the " I'm presently working on an offshore oil rig " line.
Be careful.

Re: Walnut woodgrain

Go to Grain-it Technology's website.
You will need a roller, medium brown printers' ink and a straight grain template to get close to the 38 deluxe factory finish.

Re: How to remove steering wheel? (1938)

Find yourself a small steel ring gasket - the type used in the oilfield on flanges.
About 4 inches diameter.
Cut about 2 inches out of it then slip it behind the wheel.
You can then use a common 3...

Bob Drake's catalog used to have a pretty comprehensive picture of what you need.
The package tray itself is made from plywood ( at least that was the case in 1939 )

Re: 37 Replacement seats

38 seats are similar.
Look around for prices to recover them.
A semi-retired upholsterer would be ideal.
Check the EFV8 roster for club members in your area.
Good luck.
