Re: Newly acquired 32 coupe

Congrats on the 32. Your car is a beauty.

I recently purchased my 40 convertible from a friend of mine. He also had a 34 3 window for sale and I decided on the 40.

Re: Gas Tank for 40 Convertible Steel or Poly

Re: Sometimes you have to let go

That is one beautiful automobile. I was going to sell my 40 coupe when I recently bought my 40 convertible but I feel I am going to hold on to it for a bit longer.

Re: Help with OEM material of the car seats for a 40 Convertible

Smile Re: Block leak help, Lending a hand!!!

I took the block to MIke at H&H Flatheads and he said it would not be a problem to fix the crack. Mike is also going to seal the block and build a running engine for me.
