Re: Help Identifying Model B to 1939 Ford Light Switch Bails

There were two versions of D reflecting the two different lengths of the cover at the bottom of the light switch. D appears to be for the longer cover and on '32-'34s it may clash with the engine...

34pickup, It would seem that your one was 100% more than that of the author.

Re: 1934 standard roadster?

With respect, what is the source of the '34 open car production figures that you cite? According to Ford's production records, no '34 model standard phaetons or roadsters were produced in the U.S....

Re: 32 ford hood

Thanks, Tom, for sharing the rest of the misinformation in that piece. 2 - The grille is only "nearly upright" if the back end of the car is higher than the front end; otherwise how does one explain...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

I second Bruce's recommendation for using Minwax ebony stain/sealer. It also replicates what Ford used on wood floorboards in the cab and in passenger car bodies.

Re: 32 ford hood

Utter nonsense. Once the tooling had been changed and the inventory of 20-louver hoods was exhausted in the U.S., every '32, four or V8, was equipped the 25-louver hood. As that process took place,...

Re: Rough 34 Ford 4 door project.

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Where a huge difference in cost arises is in the finish. Sealing a wood floor is dirt cheap compared to a proper paint job on a steel bed floor. Overall, the early pickups without much in the way...

Re: 1939/1940 Horn Suppliers

For what it is worth, which isn't much, Schwartze was a supplier of horns to Ford in earlier model years. Judging from the relative number of surviving examples, they supplied but a small fraction...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Wood flooring to cover up a rusted-out or heavily-pitted steel floor is often seen in '32-'34 pickups as well.

Re: Correct location and Colour of V8 Badge on 1934 Fords

Trevor,

That sales brochure illustration is actually representative of the original location of the V8 emblem on U.S. '34s. I looked at twenty or so photos from Ford's archives and they all are...

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Nothing against Mac's per se, but they do not make what they sell. Mack Hils in Moberly, MO makes what they sell and it fits right and looks right (as original).

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

I hope you mean Macks in Missouri and not Mac's in New York/Florida. The former is the go-to manufacturing source for accurately-reproduced truck sheet metal. The latter is just a seller.

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

Having had some experience in the matter of attaching '32 fenders, its thickness would compromise the fit of both the front and rear fenders (apart from its lack of the requisite number of holes for...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

The odds are growing that it is a non-Ford innovation.

You're right, the pad does serve that function as well.

Re: Drake Sale:

Enough with the Bob bashing! We'd all be up the proverbial creek without his contributions to the hobby.

Re: 32 phaeton wood

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

Looking at the Drake online catalog, their rubber bumper on the door end of their arm is simpler than the original bumper as well.

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

Robert,


Yes, that is normal for an original hood. The rubber bumper is held in place with a tubular rivet. (I've noticed that while your hood corner is formed like all of the others, it lacks...
