Re: 1939 Ford Coupe Internal Framing Question

My 39 standard coupe had the exact same problem. I welded it up about 30 years ago and have had no problems with it since.

Car Cover

Any recommendations on where to get a car cover? I mainly need a cover to keep the paint from getting "garage rash" while parked in the garage.

Re: will this oil pan fit my 37' chassis?

The sump on that pan will probably interfere with your drag link. Your best bet is a Mercury pan. The sump is towards the rear or the pan. You will also need the Mercury oil pump pick up tube.

The photo of the car in my post is not mine but I am pretty sure the color is called "Sea Mist Gray" which is actually a shade of green.
