Re: 1936 Ford Pickup Production Figures

Ford has around 1.1 million serial numbers for 1936, I don't think 90 percent would be pickups:)

Re: Another myth put out to pasture

Do a Google Search for "locomotive crankshaft storage", the click on Google Images, first one I saw was of about 5 Locomotive cranks stored horizontally, and only supported on/near the ends.

Re: New Califonia DMV legal yellow on black plates

I looked through the FAQs on the DMV site, I din't see any mention of Aluminum, it did mention a different type of "reflector paint?"

Either way, would still look better than a new white plate;)

Re: Model 51 radiator

It should be soldered on, take a torch and heat the bracket up, you should see solder starting to ooze out..I just took all that stuff of a '36 radiator.

But why do you think it's beyond repair?...
