Back on Robert's post #10, I could ring the neck of the guy that I sold my four-banger '34 roadster to as while he restored the car, he did so as a V8.


When you get a chance, I very much would like to see your engine compartment; both sides, please.
Here's a few photos of the engine compartment you asked for. Let me know if there is anything you'd like to see in better detail. FORD1.jpg

Thanks for the informative photos.

With the notable exceptions of the horn, ignition coil, and carburetor, everything looks to be of Ford origin. One Ford item that has been replaced over the years with an earlier version is the generator. It has what appears to be a '32 generator with a stamped steel front cover/support instead of the late '33-'34 version with a die cast front cover and a vented back cover.

I assume that your wanted list includes an air cleaner with a modern element as running it without one will hasten the time when the engine will require rebuiding.

Once again, IF ďauthenticityĒ and ďas Henry built itĒ the ultimate goal, you are also missing engine tins/splash aprons pictured. Not uncommon them
missing, most donít know as they arenít there to begin.

I stand corrected, DavidR astutely pointed out...my quick glance at the left side shows your tin appears bent downward. Your right pan is clearly there. my apologies on that detail
