  1. Armbrustert, You might like to take a look https://vihtr.com/ at this site if you have not already found it.

    Look in this forum. There are a few mentions of the Whippet. http://forums.aaca.org/forum/81-kaiser-frazer-darrin-henry-j-willys/ Also there is a Knight Engine forum you can check for some info. http://forums.aaca.org/forum/140-knight-engines/
  3. 1989 Maserati TC Chrysler Modena

    You might want to post this in the Chrysler TC section located in the Chrysler forums below this one. There are several people there always looking for anything TC related. It is a very active forum.
  4. Help With Grille ID

    Almost a ford maverick but the headlights are not the same.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 1938 Ford Questions

    What kind of headlight conversion does it have? Have the fenders been modified any to accommodate this setup? Has the rear lights been modified too? Is the car still 6 volt? Other than that it looks pretty good in the pics.
  9. Please help ID Econo-Minder

    Not exact but could be a starting point. Here is a 90 Cadillac DeVille dash. Must have been an extra as it seems not many were equipped with them in the pics I have seen.
  10. Along the same lines, have you ever noticed new car commercials on tv sometimes use cars with the license plates painted the same color as the car? Seems strange to me.
  11. When was this?

    The truck in the background looks like a '55 to '59 chevrolet from the shape of the cab.
  12. Dodge Truck hub cap 1950s???

    May be for a 51 lower priced Dodge car like this Wayfarer
  13. 1962 ihc c130/c132 truck

    Looks like a solid old truck. The 130 had 3 levels, standard 130 had a GVW or around 7000lbs, 131 was about 7700, and the 132 is as the tag says at 8800lbs. I think the 130 was sold as a 1 ton, 131 was 1 1/4 ton and as your title says the 132 was 1 1/2 ton. According to the license plate you are in Texas. Old Internationals are all over the place there ( I lived in West Texas for years until recently) and most parts and info you may need should still be available from a local IHC truck dealer and maybe even some from the tractor division. If you are lucky enough there may even be an old mechanic working there that would know a lot about this type of old truck. Good luck and keep us posted about your progress with the truck.
  14. One cold Ohio Edsel

    Man, what a great location. Pizza next door to keep you fed, Auto Zone for the Edsels parts needs, and on the road to the hospital for when you smash your finger working on the ole Edsel!
  15. My First Classic Since 2008

    looks like a fun toy to have.
  16. 58 Edsel Speedometer

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/525865693961753387 my question is if this was standard on all Edsels or an accessory.
  17. FS-1941 Plymouth P12 Special Deluxe--LI, NY

    As Keiser31 explained to you in his earlier post, you will not likely find a buyer on this forum. Most here are interested in original cars with little modification. His suggestion of a forum more in line with your car is good. As he stated you have a nice car but most likely the wrong place to try to find a buyer here on this forum. Good luck on finding a buyer for this nice modified car.
  18. Happy Hanukkah

    To celebrate life, love, and our blessings it a true gift from our maker, no matter how you choose to reach Him.

    Wishing you and yours a merry Christmas from Florida, USA.
  20. Flea Market Find

    Thanks for the info, Lump.
  21. Flea Market Find

    These model T grease caps are far too gone to be useful except to make a good cheap find for the day. One question someone here can answer I am sure. 3 are the same size but the 4th is larger and heavier. Might the big one be to a T truck?
  22. 1985 Chrysler Executive Limousine

    To make the story more interesting (and still, true) the guy she lived with was a local mechanic who went by the name of Shadetree. Seems some of the young local guys had a lot of problems with their old cars and needed to drop by their place after hours to get some mysterious car problem checked out.....
  23. 1985 Chrysler Executive Limousine

    Let me try to write this story where it will not offend anyone. And it is true. Years ago there was a "lady" in our town who had a limo similar to this. Hers was a GM model though. She employed several "girls" in her business and was well known for not being bashful about the services they rendered. They all dressed in the same fashion as the limo. We lived next to a church at the time and every Christmas and Easter she would bring the girls to church with her in the limo. It was quite a sight seeing them arrive in all their glory to worship on those special days.
  24. Electrical Problem A/C control

    I would suggest posting this in the Reatta section of the Buick forums just below this general forum. Think you may have a good chance of finding the answer among the Reatta folks who hang out there. Most of the people here in the general are in to older cars. Good luck on your search.
  25. Love those old Internationals. I had a Travellall about that same age and color. Tough as nails and we did not have the rust problems in dry West Texas.
