Re: Vega steering box in a 40 Ford PU

Go with the "525" GM box. I used a Vega once in a '40 and would never use another one in a '35 on up car.

Re: Do you think there will be another V-8 National meet?

Re: Do you think there will be another V-8 National meet?

I believe that is not going to happen. It appears that they are going back to Dearborn. I believe that decision has been made by the BOD. Been to Dearborn 4 times and have no desire to return.

Re: Do you think there will be another V-8 National meet?

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

Hard to tell by the photo, but did the shaft extension on the switch rub through the insulation on the starter cable?

Re: 1940 Bellows

Is that true for the leather interior? The leather interior that I got from LB had the bellows made from the same leather as the seat.

Re: 1940 Bellows

The bellows as you call it should be the same material as the seat.

Re: gas tank 1933 pickup

Shop around and buy a new tank. You'll be glad you did. Check with Tanks Inc. On e-Bay there are new tanks for your pickup from $250-$350. Would probably cost that much to fix your old tank if you...

Re: Original color

Black primer was common. Look behind your kick panels as you will usually see traces of the original paint. Also check the trunk area (braces, etc.)

Re: Interior panels

Are you looking for just the bare panels or panels with the upholstery? Check with Cartouche as they may have both.
