Re: Help with fan belt part number - 59AB in a 32

My 46 coupe didn't have any belts. So I used a rope to mesure the length, add 2 inches, works perfect. You can go to a lawn mower repair shop for belts. I got mine off ebay.

Maybe set up a open air museum for old cars. You can make up a headstone or monument with all the cars info, Cement the tires into the ground. Park under a big oak tree, and let them go back to nature
