Re: Getting the model B transmission together to swap into my 29 Tudor

I rebuilt the transmission in my 1932 with gears that I had picked up at Hershey. Then I tried to put the 1932 tower on top of the gear case and found that the forks would not fit over the grooves on...

1930/1931 Victoria Roof

If you have to replace the top on a Victoria, is it possible to put on a "leather back" top instead of the conventional top? What changes have to be made with the top bows, etc.? Ed

Re: Fender brackets 101

Re: 1930 Restored Roadster - eBay

Re: Blown Head Gaskets
