Re: SW sedan crossmember hole cover

That takes a few pressings to make. Fords way was much cheaper using left over upholstery material.

Re: Gas peddle & footrest escutcheon 's

I thought the gas pedal had a rubber seal nailed to the floor board with 3 tacks? What dose the escutcheon look like? Or are you talking about the foot rest base?

Re: 160 B front door window trim

Some further investigation reveals that my friends car is not a thoroughbred Briggs. The cowl was replaced with a Murray cowl and maybe Murray doors. The cowl has caged nuts across the bottom of the...

Re: 160 B front door window trim

Dose anyone have a Town Sedan built by Murray? I am thinking that the doors were switched out from this Briggs at one time.

Re: 160 B front door window trim

Thanks B, your frames match my early Briggs frames. Anyone able to post a picture of a late 160B frame?

Where did you find the assembly plant I.D. on your car?

Re: Headlight sockets

Thanks jw, I have a set of repo sockets that are the long type, and they looked wrong to me when I started to install them. I will order the correct ones from Brattons.

Headlight sockets

Are the 28-29 headlight sockets longer or shorter then the 30-31 sockets? I know the focus screws are a different length but not sure which sockets are correct for 31. Thanks
