  3. Flea Market Find

    Thanks for the info, Lump.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.....
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I believe all 57 fords used the same basic arm rest so there is a good chance that a vintage auto salvage yard would have them. The ranchero uses the same inside trim as the custom 300 and the ranch wagon. Also try posting in the parts wanted forum above this forum. Good luck to you.
  10. What is It??

    My first thought was Henry J also.
  11. Something the Low Men would drive?

    Dave is right. It is a 58 Ford fairlane 500. The holes that mount the side trim match the side trim for the Fairlane 500.
  12. Restoring a 1954 R-120 long bed

    What part of the truck are you referring to? The basic L, R, and S series Internationals are the same in many ways but International made changes at times to upgrade the trucks. Also there was a wide variety of configurations that the trucks could be ordered because they catered to the commercial market which demanded more flexibility. The best way to locate the correct parts for International is to start with the serial number rather that the year or model designation. Take the time to research your truck to determine its exact specs and then you will have the knowledge to find what you are looking for. They are great very tough trucks that you can be proud to own. Good luck and keep us updated on your progress. You may also like to post in the International forum on down below this general forum

  14. mitchell car club

    Look at the date on this post. 2002 so after 15 years it is unlikely you will get a response.
  15. 58 Edsel Electrical/Battery Issue

    Here is a pic of a Mercury with the commercial battery. Should be similar to the Edsel setup.
  16. 58 Edsel Electrical/Battery Issue

    NAPA shows the 29NF correct for Edsel and Mercury. Shows in stock here in Fla but may not be where you live.
  17. A tougher challenge for you... trim identify

    Don't think this is the correct answer, but it reminds me of Lincoln Mark V fender vent trim. Some had the chrome edge on the vents and some vents were just painted body color.
  18. 1975 Mopar CNT900

    Tough old trucks. There were several used for grain haulers in the 60s and 70s by the farmers in west Texas. Would love to hear it run. What year is this one?
  19. 58 Edsel Electrical/Battery Issue

    Hope that solves your problem. Please post some pics of the Edsel when you can. Everyone on these forums love pictures.
  20. Vintage Bumper For Ford? GM? Other?

    Keep searching in the 1920s. It may be hard to pin down the exact make but you have a time period to start. I knew the Chrysler was not an exact match and the Durant seems to have ^ shaped marks cast into them that are not seen in your item. The search is half the fun!
  21. Vintage Bumper For Ford? GM? Other?

    Well I am a older man who has loved cars and trucks all my life. I just knew it looked like the mid twenties and googled cars from that era and found it. Age does have some advantages sometimes. The car was about 20 years old when I was born so a few were still around when I was growing up.
  22. Vintage Bumper For Ford? GM? Other?

    Maybe a mid 20s Chrysler rear bumper?
  23. 58 Edsel Electrical/Battery Issue

    It really sounds like a bad ground somewhere or a bad cable even if they look good. Also a bad cell in the battery could cause this but you should be able to jump it which you state that does not work. I think the most likely place to look is to disconnect the ground cable at both ends and make sure the connections are very clean. Make sure there is no corrosion inside the cable covering while it is off. Good luck to you.
  24. Dating Photos of an Early Filling Station

    If you look closely at the building, there has been an addition built on after pic #1was made and then electric pumps in #3 making it the newest. So I believe they are in correct order from oldest to newest.#1 Original building, #2 building with addition, #3 newest pumps.
  25. Various cars for SAle

    Trimacar, I believe the GMC is a 3/4 or 1 ton long bed truck. The shot of the wheel shows 8 lugs and it is an original 4 speed floor shift and the plate shows 8,800 lbs max load. The tag shows it is a Canadian built truck which means it most likely has a Chevy 6 engine but there are no pics of the engine.
