Re: How to Distinguish Repro from Original Instrument Panels?

A history reminder. West Germany came into existence in 1945. Prior to that, parts would have been marked as being made in Germany.

Re: Warning - Sophisticated Scammer Trolling the Want Adds

Just a reminder, area codes mean nothing. My daughter still has a Michigan area code even though she’s in Tennessee.

Internet Phones like Magic Jack also allow you to select an area code.

Re: 41 ignition switch light

My ‘41 SD Fordor doesn’t have an ignition light either. I’m wondering if it disappeared later in production because my ‘41 Deluxe Tudor had one.

Re: 1941 ford front sheet metal change?

The Henry Ford Museum used to display Mr. Ford’s sedan. The Rouge plant did a refit of the front sheet metal in order to make it resemble a postwar car. I believe that was a ‘41 as well.
