Re: Rough 34 Ford 4 door project.

It's happening all the time and is a good source for what you will need, That also could be a potential source for fenders. There is an accurate reproduction to replace or patch your car's floor. ...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Where a huge difference in cost arises is in the finish. Sealing a wood floor is dirt cheap compared to a proper paint job on a steel bed floor. Overall, the early pickups without much in the way...

Re: 1939/1940 Horn Suppliers

For what it is worth, which isn't much, Schwartze was a supplier of horns to Ford in earlier model years. Judging from the relative number of surviving examples, they supplied but a small fraction...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Wood flooring to cover up a rusted-out or heavily-pitted steel floor is often seen in '32-'34 pickups as well.

Re: Correct location and Colour of V8 Badge on 1934 Fords

Trevor,

That sales brochure illustration is actually representative of the original location of the V8 emblem on U.S. '34s. I looked at twenty or so photos from Ford's archives and they all are...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Nothing against Mac's per se, but they do not make what they sell. Mack Hils in Moberly, MO makes what they sell and it fits right and looks right (as original).

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

I hope you mean Macks in Missouri and not Mac's in New York/Florida. The former is the go-to manufacturing source for accurately-reproduced truck sheet metal. The latter is just a seller.

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

Having had some experience in the matter of attaching '32 fenders, its thickness would compromise the fit of both the front and rear fenders (apart from its lack of the requisite number of holes for...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

The odds are growing that it is a non-Ford innovation.

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

You're right, the pad does serve that function as well.


OLDMANKOHOUT, Thanks for the photo as it shows the pads and the simpler method of retaining the rubber bumper with a closed-slot washer...

Re: Drake Sale:

Enough with the Bob bashing! We'd all be up the proverbial creek without his contributions to the hobby.


P.S. I placed an order today and everything that I wanted was in stock.

Re: 32 phaeton wood

That's an interesting and informative thread, but there's one premise stated that is incorrect. The Australian bodies were unique to Australia and made in Australia, not with stampings from Canada,...

Re: 1932 phaeton top iron questions

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

Looking at the Drake online catalog, their rubber bumper on the door end of their arm is simpler than the original bumper as well.

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

Originally there was a 1/2" x 1/8" arm riveted to a pair of tabs on the A pillar and curved on the end that inserts into a slot in the front of the door. A unique rubber bumper (B-46590) is attached...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

Robert,


Yes, that is normal for an original hood. The rubber bumper is held in place with a tubular rivet. (I've noticed that while your hood corner is formed like all of the others, it lacks...

Re: 32 phaeton wood

Note the missing words regarding the doors have been added to my post. How I left them out in the first place is a mystery given how many I've had over the years. Talk about senior moments!

Re: NEW products available thread

Karl,


Good show; right down to the correct lock nuts. Will you offer the rubber inserts to retain the glass?

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

There is the minor matter of six inches more of wheelbase in a '33-'34 frame. Another clue are the holes for the steering gear on the right side. The are simply round like all but very late '32...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

A first for me and like 51 MERC-CT, the question as to what the frame looks like beneath that panel immediately comes to mind. Given that it is a deluxe coupe, the body is of North American origin...
