Re: LH 1940 Convertible "Peep Mirror"

Hi ya Glenn,
I am a firm believer that the right hand mirror was offered only for aesthetic reasons. Certainly Ford knew the right mirror was useless. Plus, the right mirror was not offered to...

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

Major surgery began yesterday. The top of the cowl had been replaced in the past with a mix of '39 & '40 parts. The workmanship was some of the worst I'd ever seen.
I was able to source a '38 upper...

Re: 1937 to 1941 replacement drag link

Just trying to sort out what the guy was after. Going for points and castle nuts ain't gonna do it.

Re: 1937 to 1941 replacement drag link

NO castile nuts on a '40, not a one. There are slotted head hex nuts but no castile nuts. The two are very different from one another. That's why I'd asked if you were going for points.

Re: 1937 to 1941 replacement drag link

If you intend to get the vehicle judged, the entire repop link will get you a deduction.
The authentic link had one tie rod end integral of the link itself. The repops do not.
NOS links are...

Re: United oil bath air cleaner.

At least by '37, there was a small "U" within a diamond shape on the bottom. I've no idea of earlier designs.

A long but fruitful day today. Now it's time for a shower, some dinner and a good brandy.

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

To my knowledge, at least all the passenger car sheet metal was produced by Ford. I can't speak to trucks.

I knew, I just knew I was gonna get in trouble. This is my first dabble outside "concourse correct".

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

My fault... I should not have assumed everyone would know. I've attached a photo here of the very first convertible I'd done (circa 1980ish) for comparison.

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

The third trunk lid from Carpenter arrived today and miracle be, it was not damaged.

I'd mentioned early on in this thread that there will be some little modifications done to this car in the late...

Re: Electric fan over a belted fan

So did most people that drove those two (examples) of cars. That doesn't negate the fact that they were sold to the public KNOWING they had extremely serious issues with safety.

Re: Electric fan over a belted fan

I find it funny that folks still, to this day, pick on Nader. Corviar's were built with a KNOWN safety issue that killed many folks. Why? Because the fix back then was about $6 per car.

Re: Original color

Good point and one I should've remembered. I have used this area to match shades for past restorations. Like inside the doors, it is out of the light and weather.
Thanks for slapping my memory bank...

Re: 1940 Ford 1/2 ton restoration sequence?

In my post (#8) I hope I'd expressed my concern of keeping a person motivated.
There is a HUGE difference in "take your time" and not doing anything to your truck for years on end.

Re: Original color

Deuce is correct of course - there is no way to know for certain what color the vehicle was when it left the assembly line.
Often enough, there are traces of the authentic color inside the door.
