Re: 15" Rims

I purchased my 15" wheels from Wheelsmith in CA. They build vintage styles to accept stock caps. You can buy them unpainted to help keep the cost down. They are good people.

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

That part is for sale on Ebay as a '39 pass car trim piece. Someone may have stolen the ebay photos for a scam. Don't know if it will help but here is a link that shows some good photos of the '39...

Re: New Addition

Nice, from the looks of it you shouldn't be needing much for parts. What part of the world will it call home?

Re: Steering Wheel Covers

Google truck steering wheel cover. I see some old style laced on that claim to fit 16" - 18" wheels.

Superior 58-0470B Truckline Sport Grip Steering Wheel Cover is one of them.

Re: Wilwood front disc kit 140-14190

FYI: Last year when I replaced my rear brakes from BB's I was told by BB's that Speedway was using their backing plates but not the BB's drums.

Re: Fords in Fall 2020
