    My buddy's 1966 GMC panel van....

    Grumman built most of the GM step van bodies but this looks a little different. There is a plaque missing under the side window that could have told the answer. Should be a body plate inside with info too.

    Borg clock

    Looks similar to a 46 - 48 Chevy but face color is wrong. Also could be too small. What size is it?

    Yep, Roy, mid -'0s Travellall I think.

    Engine stubles just before upshif

    Are you sure the transmission is not the problem? Sounds like it may be having issues upshifting until you let the pressure off it for a couple of seconds by letting off the gas.

    Teenagers and Old Cars

    Making memories. Those happy kids will never forget you or that great ride. I had an old Dodge pickup that the grandsons thought they had to ride in every time they came over and drive when they got older.

    Any Crosley gurus here?

    Not much action in the Crosley forum here, but this is listed there as a source of everything Crosley. http://www.CrosleyAutoClub.com I would ask this in our crosley forum also to see if anyone is awake down there. You might find someone with info that would like to share with you.

    What an old Buick Skylark unrestored is worth

    It is worth what you and the owner agree on. A 4 door skylark in that condition is not a valuable car to most people.

    Help Identifying Emblems

    The meteor letters may be from a Canadian Meteor which is basically a Mercury. Here is a 69. Yours looks from a earlier year or possibly a truck.

    What year heater?

    It looks very small judging from your hand next to it. What is the size?

    70's Chrysler Daily Driver?

    We had a 78 Chrysler Cordba in the 80's. It was a good car. The only problem we had was the ballast resistor on the firewall would burn out every few months. They are less than 10.00 and easy to install since it mounts on the firewall with one bolt and two plug in wires as I remember it. I kept a spare in the car and could change it in a less than 10 minutes. Nice looking comfortable car. I would not mind having one like it today. Most cars from that era have a quirk or two to keep things interesting and this one was just a minor inconvenience

    '49 Olds Woodie for sale

    It shows under his avatar that he is in South Central PA, I am assuming that is where the car is also.

    1970s Ford EVF - Fairlane?

    I lean toward "Emergency Vehicle - Fire Dept."

    Late 1970s or early 1980s Plymouth

    Steve, that is probably the reason. Being a fire unit it was not as important to keep the brakes and wheels cool as it would have been for a police car that was subject to more strenuous use.

    Late 1970s or early 1980s Plymouth

    Unusual that it has police hubcaps with the cooling vents on the front and standard ones on the rear.
  20. Armbrustert, You might like to take a look https://vihtr.com/ at this site if you have not already found it.

    Help With Grille ID

    Almost a ford maverick but the headlights are not the same.
  23. Copied from OLD IHC forum, this may help some. Look to the last few paragraphshttps://oldihc.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/ih-serial-numbers-2/ for info concerning your trucks. OLD IHC is a great source of info.

    1940 D2 Restoration

    That would make a great truck with just a good cleanup and get her running. Keep us posted as you proceed. You have not mentioned where you are located, but in far West Texas where I lived for many years it seems every farmer had an IHC or two that came out to work during harvest.

    1940 D2 Restoration

    Hello and welcome. Would love to see pictures of your truck. Most on the AACA forum are dedicated to keeping things original as possible. With your history with this truck, it seems that might fit your memories of its life (and yours). The IHC trucks are very durable as they were built and should do fine in normal use. If the engine is free, just change the fluids and put fresh gas in it, take the plugs out and put in a little light weight oil on the pistons to lubricate it before trying to start it. You may be surprised at the results you get. Of course go thru your break system and steering, etc to insure safety. Please keep us informed of your results, and again we LOVE pictures!
