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: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

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


OLDMANKOHOUT, Thanks for the photo as it shows the pads and the simpler method of retaining the rubber bumper with a closed-slot washer...

Re: Drake Sale:

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


P.S. I placed an order today and everything that I wanted was in stock.

Re: 32 phaeton wood

That's an interesting and informative thread, but there's one premise stated that is incorrect. The Australian bodies were unique to Australia and made in Australia, not with stampings from Canada,...

Re: 1932 phaeton top iron questions

Re: 34 Pickup Door Check Arm/Strap

Originally there was a 1/2" x 1/8" arm riveted to a pair of tabs on the A pillar and curved on the end that inserts into a slot in the front of the door. A unique rubber bumper (B-46590) is attached...

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...

Re: 32 phaeton wood

Note the missing words regarding the doors have been added to my post. How I left them out in the first place is a mystery given how many I've had over the years. Talk about senior moments!

Re: NEW products available thread

Karl,


Good show; right down to the correct lock nuts. Will you offer the rubber inserts to retain the glass?

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

There is the minor matter of six inches more of wheelbase in a '33-'34 frame. Another clue are the holes for the steering gear on the right side. The are simply round like all but very late '32...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

A first for me and like 51 MERC-CT, the question as to what the frame looks like beneath that panel immediately comes to mind. Given that it is a deluxe coupe, the body is of North American origin...

Re: 1932 Ford Pedal Pads Question

hop up,


Early '33s used the carryover '32 pads and the pedal ends were formed like the ends on the '32 pedals. They weren't threaded and the pads were attached with thin check nuts and lock...

Caught me guys! Man, getting old ain't no fun. Actually the two are equal, but you're right, not for the purpose at hand.
