Re: Synthetic Oil for Model A

Unless you drop the pan and open the valve galley up and remove the existing sludge it's stilll going to be there. Lot of work IMO opinion for only driving what you do. JMO

Re: original 32 grill shell

There's one on our swap site right now. Pricey and description doesn't equal "pristine" in my opinion.

Re: Best way to sell parts

Re: 1930 Tudor front seats.

My late 31 DeLuxe Tudor had rounded backrests, and the driver's seat was wider than the passenger's. Is your driver's seat wider than the passenger's??
