Re: YOM License Plate Frame

Thanks, I agree it looks good without a frame. I want one so I can put a plastic cover over it for a little more protection.

Re: Temperature

Same thing only different, the cooling system is modified. I’m used to my ‘52 Ford tractor with a non pressurized radiator. This one has a stainless cylinder overflow...

Re: Temperature

Not a typo in original post. Warms to around 160. Stays there for not long. Drops to about 110ish and stays there. All Fahrenheit.

Re: Temperature

Not sure the quality. But, an aftermarket gauge. The fact that it goes up to around 160 before it drops makes me suspicious of the thermostats.

Re: The fun begins

Mark I split my time between Hawaii and the mainland. The truck lives here in New Mexico. Not a lot of old vehicles on the big island, they rust out before they get old.

Cheers,

Re: The fun begins

Tom I’ve already been thinking of Lincoln brakes based on what I’ve read. Did not even think of the sway bar. Great suggestions both. Thanks.

Re: The fun begins

I’m voting for blackwalls too. Earlier poster reminded me to check date codes. If there aged out I’ll new ones now, otherwise I’ll drive them a while.

Re: The fun begins

Would love to have that old convertible. It was quite the beach car for a 16 year old.

Jeff, I still don’t know how to create a post with a photo that is full sized like you’ve done, mine are always thumbnails.

In the glove box of Ruby the ‘39 Pickup

Took a break from work and was rooting through the glove box. Found these unused coupons.

Look closely and you can see the perforations.

Cheers.
