Re: 1932 frame horn covers

I believe that they were a short-lived early version given the apparent scarcity of surviving examples, although they have shown up on both U.S. and European '32s. My favorite, which I believe to be...

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

Those in the ebay listing in #8 above appear to be as advertised, namely originals, and I agree that they were a bargain.

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

If so, those are not one of the six known versions of the originals. i.e. they are reproductions as none of the six had oval holes where the cover attached to the rear fender. Originals have only...

Smile Re: 33-34 Clutch Release Arm Question

Re: 32 3W rear window drain pan

Restorations Specialties and Supply in PA have at least a half a dozen varieties of the seal you are seeking for sale by the foot. It was also used on the sides of the '36 and '37 radiators.

Re: 1933 Rear Tire carrier

With the exception of the brackets that attach to the bar, the rack itself in your photos appears to be the same as the '32 Australian version.
