I should have stated this a little better. In the Black section right below the NEW logo there is a tap "Community" this is where you can find Social Groups. I have created one in there for 41-48 Ford Cars. You can post pictures of your cars and add help link that will always be there for easy reference.
Here is a link. http://www.fordbarn.com/forum/group.php?groupid=33

And a very nice one one also. I really like those big fat fendered Mercs.

Here is some pics of my dad's 1948 Super Deluxe Fordor... Its nicknamed the Grey Goose. Its an all stock 59a except its 12v. A minor interior restoration is in store. We also plan on putting some 15" steelies or chrome reverse wheels on it. Maybe a little suspension work with some dropped springs. This will be the "family" cruiser as it will hold more than my F-100. One question I have is how or where can we tell that rear axle ration it has? When the speedo reads 55 or so the engine is really turning. I dont know if changing to a 3.55 would be good since the engine is stock and the car is heavy... Any thoughts?

Brad

I think I got the link right and joined. New Fordbarn is a lot more techy but does have a lot more to offer. I found most of the posts to be the 34-40 Ford questions. Nice to have a section on just 41-48s. Plus I like the edit function to correct my typing after I have posted something!

The standard was a 3.78 ratio. Stamped on the differential housing would be 9/34 for the 3.78 if by some chance you had the 4.11 its stamp would be 9/37. Mine revs about 2500 revs at 55 with a 3.78 ratio and 15" coker radials. The 3.78 ratio revs around 200 rpm lower than a 4.11 ratio at every speed from 45-65 MPH

My 47 coupe had 3.78 gears in it and i went to 3.54. The engine was still screaminmg at 70 mph. I would think about using a old Bronko 9" and mount it under the old Ford. It will have the same bolt patern as the wheels you are using now. U could use a ford pichup trans shaft and rear mount with pickup yoke and have a open drive line and run 3.25 gears. Marv
