Removed hard radiator hoses, removed old hard as rock gas hose, took distributor loose and still cannot get out from in front of motor. Will not clear the radiator and car frame to get out, might jack engine up a little to get some space. Took battery out, it is bad and battery was rubbing the carpet and two tall (no cover), you would think they would have retro-fitted. Drained oil and anti-freeze, anti-freeze was very clean and looked good. Removed big old horn set, now I can see a body information plate, anyone that can give me breakdown on plate?, thanks Bruce

Bruce: This was posted by Don Rogers Re Body tag:
In 1934 most of Ford's bodys were built by Briggs, Murray or Budd Companies. Body plates were often used so the body manufacturer could keep track of the body after it was built and shipped to a Ford assembly plant. Your plate # 710 LB 7212 most likely means that the body was made by LeBaron Co.(Division of Briggs) It was model 710 (Roadster) and it was body # 7212.
Bruce: 760 is the Ford model number for Cabriolet

I've never took a distributor out downwards, always done it from above.

You might need to remove the generator, or loosen the fan belt. I only use crab type now, much easier.

Is that a V8 Club sticker I see on the windshield? First I'd take that as an encouraging sign regards the originality of the car, which appears amazing. Second, I wonder if the club has any records? I know when I register for meets they want the car's number. Maybe you'll find out something amazing.

We all have favorite cars that give a little blood pressure bump. Yours is doing it for me right now!

One last two cents worth... I love the look of the vintage tires, but don't think I'd trust them for very long especially if they were as flat as the one on that Lincoln.

VeryTangled, tires just as flat as the Lincoln, tires took air and I loaded up, still holding air today, I am going to change old tires and rims to ones I bought last year from person in New Jersey if memory serves me. Let me know what you think they will look like on car.


Took distributor to Don's today and we went through the distributor, will have to order, boots, plugs for distributor body, and send coil off to Skip to rebuild.


No better help than Don, thanks everyone

Nice car!!!!!! Interesting to see the difference in tags . The tag on top in the first pic is from my 33 cabriolet and the one below is a repop . Second pic is yours and it looks like you ALMOST had # 10,000 ! The 33 cab one is the only " narrow " one I have . My 34 roadster & 34 cabriolet have the " wide " type like yours . Never really looked into this but I would imagine someone out there has info on this difference . On the woodgrain thing your dash , glovebox lid , ashtray cover , door top trim , windshield post trim and the trim piece across the header get woodgrained .

This 34 grill was still in a bad box, filled with mice nest, never on a car, but rusted due to storage in the garage with car, who would you recommend to attempt to do re - chrome. Any ideas let me know, thanks Bruce
