Re: Did I finally find a GEM?

Very nice. I do believe the mats are original but I wonder about the red oxide underneath. Neither of my 50's have that but having said that, this is the straightest club coupe I have seen!!

Re: Throttle return spring and baling wire

Nice looking car!! Wire is a standard component in all of my tool boxes that I carry-learned from my grandpa also from the farm!

Re: 12 Volt battery to fit '40

Yes the shut off switch goes on the neg cable. Mine will not fit the positive cable so it has to go on the correct post.

Re: Merc In The Snow

Re: Drop light

I felt the same until I got this one by Bayco. Nightstick SLR 2120-91. I would throw away all the rest of mine and just keep this one. Google it.
