Re: Narragansett reproductions

I agree with rotorwrench and paul2748 as banks normally alert you to unusual activity on your card account and immediately put a hold on any charges that I do not recognize on their monthly printed...

Re: Original frame color

The only remote exception would be if the vehicle was provably part of a large commercial fleet of vehicles who Ford granted (for a fee usually) the right to specify non-standard colors on both...

Re: 1936 hand brake painting ?

Re: 3 inch peep mirrors

They're not Ford released accessories for '33 or '34 and maybe never. Note that the Ford script is the modern version, slightly more upright with shorter tails, not that of the 1930s and earlier.

Re: No Shipping

And some of the examples are extreme; there's a seller on ebay with two '33-'34 commercial pitman arms who offers local pickup only and they have gone unsold month after month (duh!). We're talking...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


Typically, today's replacement tires are at least one size larger than the originals. That translates into the tire being mounted higher in the front fender well and narrowing your...

Re: Narragansett reproductions

My experience with Narragansett is with their Lincoln parts. I use Rhode Island Wiring for their reproductions when I've run out of NOS wiring for a particular application.

Re: Narragansett reproductions

Narragansett Reproductions is very much still in business. Google can be very useful for such questions. Rhode Island Wiring is also an excellent source. To each his own, but Tyree Harris's wiring...

Re: The Early Ford V8 Club of America - Application Form.

Chris,


The scope of the Club includes the '32-'34 fours (and later fours and sixes, as well), but then you know that given that you have a copy of the Club's 1932 book.

Re: Flying Flathead

Ah, Island Airlines' Tri-Motors to and from Port Clinton and Put-in-Bay; low, slow, and a barrel of fun never to be forgotten.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


Please do not crawl under your truck when using that old jack; it's nice to have it, but as a conversation piece, not as a tool to be relied on.

Re: Removing Windshield Frame from 1934 Tudor

Only that it is heavy and it is best done with two pairs of hands. Also pad the top of the cowl to avoid paint damage, just in case.

Re: Pict of the correct hardware for '32 wishbone ball cap

I recommend a S2 (black oxide) finish, rather than a S (plain) finish as the latter offers zero corrosion protection.

Chris,


It's a '51 Mercury, my runaway favorite of the '49-'51 trio.
