Re: What kind of jack do you carry

Since you didn't say what year -- the best jack for most early Fords is a scissors jack. I have found that one from a Ford Airostar van works best. It is completely self contained and with a piece...

Re: What is the purpose of this?

This is the lock mechanism that you are looking for. There is a spring and a lock ring you will also need.

Re: 1936-1939 Pickup Spare Tire Locking Cap "aka The Frying Pan"

The way to tell if it still in original condition is the plating on the hinge. Most that get restored have the hinge painted black. That is not how they came from the assembly plant.
If you do a...

Re: Ford Blue Hub cap paint?

Pin stripping tape is a good edge maker when doing detail work such as this.
It gives you that "cushion" of error and when the paint is dry, you remove it and have a straight clean edge.

Re: 1936 PU original colors, purple and yellow?

Most likely a fleet color paint job.
Ford was known to paint special color combinations for fleet orders (5 or more). Anything to assist with a sale.
