Sanford & Son Pickup Truck

What year was the pickup truck in the sitcom. Was it a 1951 or 1952? The internet has it listed as either year depending upon what website you visit.

Re: NYS Inspection for Model T

Believe me, I did go to a local Ford dealer and got even worse service. I went to take advantage of a tire deal for my wife's car and the dealer put her new directional tires on backwards on one side...

Re: KR Wilson Steering wheel puller

Re: orignal 1934 woodgrain

Is there anyone that has the original burl pattern and color for a dash and a set of moldings for a '33? I know the pattern is straight grain for the moldings. Someone that you could trust? My...

Re: Early ford frame stamps

What I find odd in post #10 is that there were two different style stamps used for the number 1 and number 6. I've never seen this before.

1934 Ford Coupes and Chassis

Since my old truck broke down and I won't make it to Hershey this year, I figured I'd offer my parts as one lump sum to someone here on the Barn first.

Re: 1933 Clutch Release Bearing Lubrication

Thanks David. Both 33's I own are low mileage. The problem is I believe the engines were rebuilt at least once in their life. I really don't know. If I take the inspection plate cover off under the...
