Default clips needes

Clip needs for 1936 Ford Fordor Humpback Sedan stock. I'm looking for the clips that hold the capillary wire from the water temp sending unit to the temp gauge. They hold the capillary wire to the tube that holds the spark plug wires off of the engine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are not going 100% authentic most all vendors have them (but they are half the width of originals). We have the correct width ones, but they are considerably more expensive than the others.

For comparative measures, the clip on the far left is a Drake, the middle is ours and the right is a NOS.

35-36’s take two and 37-39 takes one. The drake ones when available are a lot more affordable. Ours are made here in the US which drives the cost way up sadly ($18 a pair)

For someone who could care less about the width difference, the Drake ones perform just fine and would be much easier on the wallet.

Buy the ones from Michael. At least he's an American with parts made in America and he won't send you a virus like China did.

I did a whole lot of work on a '35 Fordor Touring Sedan (humpback) last year before bombing it on a 2k mile road trip. There are many, many good bits and bobs on this freshen-up job that came from 35fordtn's operation. You should absolutely make a list and dial the number. Good old fashioned fabulous service and correct/easy-to-fit essentials!

I have been a carpenter dealer and never realized until now they produced them. I ordered some in the AM so I can have a cheaper option available.
