Re: Vendor praise[for a change]

My experience has been the same as yours. These are two companies that are a credit to the old car hobby and should be patronized whenever possible. Kudos to both for being there for us!!!...

Re: Green Bible question

If I understand you correctly, the Green Bible is a reprint of the 49-51 Service Manual and the book you have is an illustrated parts manual.

Re: 3 spd trans

I believe that you will find the transmission mount on a 51-53 is in a slightly different position than on a 49-50. I believe that you would have to use the crossmember from the 49-50 to do this...

For the original EAB V8 question; if original appearance is important, are you aware that they made a different fan assembly for the automatic transmission cars? It looks exactly like the std trans...

Re: Newbie with a question!

Recently there was a car seller that had a 53 Ford glasstop. The ad said that it had been "converted". I would guess that there is a better chance that the 53 Merc has been converted using a...

Re: Help Identify This Grill

Just a guess but how about a 68/69 Buick Riviera or Olds Tornado? It seems to me that they had something similar. . .

Re: Running straight water

I've used Red Line Water Wetter for the past 5 years and it seems to be doing a good job of preventing corrosion. I change it once a year.

Re: 1950 Ford Bus. Cpe


I concur, you have a very nice car! I believe, however, that it is a Custom DeLuxe Club Coupe. If it has a back seat, stainless around the front and back windows, and chrome "finials" at...

Re: Classic Auto Insurance


I'm sorry if this is a little off topic but, as we are all getting older, you also might want to consider a AAA membership as part of your "insurance" package. They also provide 100 mile...

Re: Oil pressure on my 50 Ford

The 50 coupe in my picture is an original (other than wheels & tires) with 15,000 miles. It runs about 35 lbs. at speed and 15 lbs. at idle so your pressures sound good to me. I once drove a 36...

Re: looking for front 1949-50 front sheet metal??

I am unaware of anyone making other than fiberglass for the 49-50. Why not contact Chris at Shoebox Ford and get a quote on a complete nose? Other than finding it locally, I would think this is the...

I'm using a 30,000 btu pellet stove to heat a 30 x 40 (14ft ceiling) garage in western WA. It works very well but is a little expensive; about $750 for Nov-Feb. I'm thinking of a Reznor with either...
