Default New to me 1947 super deluxe

Made a 3700 mile round trip effort to pick up this coupe in The desert. Did it in four days, saw alot of route66 along the way there. Stayed at the blue swallow motel in Tucumcari,NM. Neat experience. Had trailer issues on the way back. Not so fun. Had to get a new rear axle. Set me back about 7 hours. Anyway got her home, cleaned her up. Runs great, shes been sitting up for about 7 years since the owners passing. The 59ab is smoking a litttle, im gonna try some mmo. Quit running today on me. Wasnt getting any fuel out the pump, undid the fuel lines and blew back into the tank. Couldnt blow back at first, finally cleared it and hooked it all back up. gonna drop the tank and see if i can clean it out, she Purrs like a kitten. Still 6 volt. Starts easy and runs strong

You made a great find. Probably first thing to fix is fuel issues from sitting soo long. This is typical. Anyways - Beautiful car!! - Bob

Your coupe is looking good. I like the sun visor. It sounds like you had a little adventure on the trip. To me that beats a boring trip especially if no one was hurt.

dad,
What a great car and super color. Way too many owners of old Fords passing lately. Proves the 'saying' " We're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time "
Gotta DO it !

That's going to make a nice driving coupe. Get the bugs worked out and drive the hell out of it.
