Re: radial tires on a 55 car wheel (orig)

I guess I learned something new today. I'd never heard of this happening.

Re: 1955 center HUD light

I installed vintage 3rd brake lights that I've found at garage/estate sales. I installed the one in my 58 Chevy wagon near the top of the rear window, and in the 63 Galaxie, it's on the package...

Re: 1954 and 1955 Lincoln Hubcaps

I like the front of the 54 better than the 55. Reminds me of the time I was talking with a VW salesman that sold me a new Bug in 69. I asked him what the difference was between two model year Bugs....

Re: Radio antenna

I worked at a Ford dealer while in HS in the mid to late 60's. It was my job to install the antenna's, and Ford supplied a paper template to tape to the fender to show where to drill the holes. In...

Re: Is anybody

Barely covered the ground here a day or two ago. Didn't even get to use my 'new to me' JD with plow yet. Snowblower is still hanging on the wall.

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons

Sometimes, less is more. The chromed window frame on the doors would be the first thing to go.

Re: 64 Galaxie door panel clip alternatives

I remember those well. Sometimes you would go to pull off the door panel, and it had gotten wet and frail. The clips would stay in the door.

Re: sun visors , Right and Left ??

On my 58 Chevy, they are the same. The mounting holes in the roof are at a slight angle, allowing the arm to move in the correct direction. If you will notice, the arm should swing 360*, so it should...

Re: 64 Galaxie front drum brake issue

Have you checked the front brake hoses. I had a 46 Ford PU once that did that. The hoses collapsed inside and kept the brake pressure from bleeding back to the MC. When I would jack it up and check,...

Re: stabilizer bar bushings.

Someone on another website posted this video of how to stop the squeaking with poly bushings. For myself, I use the original rubber bushings. They'll outlast me.

Re: 64 Galaxie - raise front seat

Good idea on the oak. My wife has to use a pillow when she drives the 63, and it is a bit low for me too. Now...to find some oak.

Re: Easy way to pump gas out of gas tank

Ya gotta be old school and suck on the hose, hoping that you don't get a mouthful of gas. If you do, you've been initiated.:eek:

Re: Back-up Lights 1957 Ford

Sometimes life gets in the way. I 'finished' my 58 Chevy in the early 90's. The car is the cheapest line in the wagon group, and didn't come with the interior light that comes on with door switches;...

Re: The gas Gauge doesn't work on 56 T-Bird

The gas gauge showed MT on my 58 Chevy. I pulled the sending unit and found that the brass float had cracked in three places. Replaced it with another float, and less than 6 months, the gauge was...

Re: 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon V8 Dual Exhaust Tail Pipes

It's not just on Fords. My 58 Chevy wagon has them out the rear, and I can smell exhaust in the car. Being that I only drive it in the summer, I just open the fresh air vents. But, one of these days,...

Re: What are your thoughts on polishing stainless?

Daves55, you should've used the 'sticks' of compound from Eastwood. Not as mess. My bench grinder is also mounted on a stand, and no guards so I can work from the sides, too. I was lucky, I had no...

Re: What are your thoughts on polishing stainless?

I polished all the SS on my 58 Chevy wagon, but there really wasn't a whole lot of it, being the bottom line wagon for that year. My wheels are only 6", I imagine that his are much larger and do a...

Re: 1957 T bird new fuel pump problems!!

I can't remember the particulars, because it was about 50 years ago. My oldest brother gave me a 58 Mercury with a 383 in it, and it didn't run well. IIRC, the fuel pump was in front, on top. The...
