Re: 12volt or not?

I looked on Amazon. $561. I don't think so. Advance Auto has them for $224 plus core charge. This is for Group 1. Don't Fords use Group 2?

Re: Something to ponder - Hershey 2022

Re: NADA Pricing Guide

The rules are always the same: buy low, sell high. For a car you restored, it will be the opposite, but I think most of us have different motivations. We like to restore and we buy for enjoyment.
