Re: 1940 Ford convertible body tags

One of my 39 deluxe convertibles ( ex USA ) had a body tag up in the LH corner.
From memory it ended with 074 indicating the first week of production.

Re: crash

Try Dave in Inglewood.
Ring him then send some pictures.
They have worked on a lot of pre-war Ford V8's.
Bought 1 or 2 of mine back from the dead.

Re: Interior panels

Have a look at Drake's illustration of the package tray wood kit that he sells ( or used to ).
Most common item I have found to be missing is the spare wheel bracket.
The interior rear trim...

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.

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

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.

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.
Look up 1938 ford deluxe...
