Re: Witch 3 speed floor shifter ?

Tubman X 2. In years past, I had far better luck with Hurst shifters than other brands. The Hurst units were much better built than some of the others. The OD will be an issue, I'm sure.

Re: Need Seat Info.

Thanks, Bill. That's what I thought. The '28-'29 models do have a wooden bottom, I think.

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

TTT -Make me an offer. The Pittman arm will really reduce steering effort - the cheapest "power steering" you can buy! If not sold, parts will go to scrap. Gotta move 'em!

Re: flathead issues

Warped head? Cracked block? Wavy deck on the block? Would have to do some accurate measuring / checking to tell for sure.. Good luck.

Re: Headers

I believe that JWL's book sheds some light on this oft-discussed subject. With that said, I have a couple of flatheads w/headers, Brockmans and 2" pipes. Love that sound!

Re: Anybody holding on a project afraid of it going to rat rodders?

Any time something is sold, it becomes the property of the purchaser. . . . .who can do with it as he sees fit. I like skidmarks solution to the problem.

Re: Package Deal....

You'll make more selling three separate cars as opposed to a package of three, assuming you are selling the cars yourself and aren't paying a sales commission. JMO
Good luck with your endeavor.
