  1. Don't know if this helps or not. Found a couple of references for Autolite B7A-12405 fitting Ford 312 engines from 57 to 61. Seems to crossreference to BTF6
  2. Here is an article that identifies it as either a 34 White or 34 Dodge according to various sources. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/index.php/2010/11/08/have-a-coke-and-smile/
  3. Looks like an industrial cap to me. Here is a pic of a 1930 International truck engine to compare to what you have
  4. Possibly for a 48 -52 Ford truck. Masurements would help identify it better.
  5. Wonder if this is the company that made this. It is located in the general area of Medford NJ. In their info page it says they have been in the automotive safety lighting business for many years. http://www.arrowsafetydevice.com/about-arrow-safety-device-company.html
  6. You need to come on down for a visit. 80s in the daytime and 60s at night. Think we had about 4 days below freezing this winter. Good luck finding a home for your heater. Someone needs it.
  7. It would not be of interest to someone who has a show quality truck, but there are a lot of old trucks owned by people who just want a functional fun vehicle who might need it if the core and blower are good. A guess would be maybe 100.00. It should fit several years of trucks. 48 to 52 and possibly more. Someone with more knowledge on these may chime in with their opinion. Look on E bay and see if any have sold recently
  8. this seems to show a similar heater in a 50 Ford truck. I believe it would be an aftermarket unit as all other trucks I have seen had a different unit.
  9. Something about it keeps bringing me to old car heaters, maybe aftermarket. I looked at pics of Arvin heaters and did not find it.
  10. Glad I could help. I grew up in far west Texas and every farmer seemed to have a couple of old Internationals that would come out of hiding at harvest time. Also a lot of the school districts used International busses. They had to run many miles every day on very bad roads and they were more heavy duty than the Fords and Chevys. So if you are 40 miles from town with kids on board it was necessary to have a dependable bus. No cell phones back then to even call for help. Here is a picture of an Bluebird bodied bus using the International drive components..
  11. Could be the hood emblem off an International Loadstar from the 1960-70s era. Very popular medium duty trucks with farmers, lumber yards, wholesale delivery, etc and many chassis were used for school buses.
  12. I believe the picture with the lady and the one with the two people could be the same car.
  13. The tractor would start easier on gas which is more volatile, but then switch to kerosene for more power and less wear on the engine. If you have not read about "pony motors" you might find them interesting also. The first diesel engines had such high compression that the electric starters if the day could not handle them. Catipillar, John Deere, and many others used a gasoline pony motor to start the diesel and then disengage the pony. Interesting to watch an engine being started by a pony.
  14. Here is a 38 Ford Transit
  15. Do not know how accurate this article is, but it is where the second picture seems to have come from. Made by Hess and Eisenhardt according to this.http://imcdb.org/vehicle_325893-Buick-LeSabre-Stretched-Limousine-1987.html
  16. I always liked the big ole boats, so I would take the Caddy in the background. Oh, and by the way, the first new car I ever bought was a 63 Dodge Dart.
  17. Just a few miles from me. Wish I had some inside parking and a few extra bucks. https://ocala.craigslist.org/cto/6020310393.html WELL, SORRY! That did not stay for sale long I guess. It was a 1971 International JOHNNY REB 1000 pickup. Less than 500 produced with that trim package. Very nice condition inside and out and ready to drive or show. Cross between orange and red paint with cream sides and good JR graphics on sides and hood. $8500.00
  18. Love those old flatheads. Nothing sounds so sweet. It can follow me home anytime.
  19. Great speed !!! Thank you for the hard work and $$$ spent to improve our forum.
  20. In many states only red or amber lights can be used on the rear of a car. The blue dots change the color of the light and is considered illegal.
  21. Great! Good thing you do not live close. My wife loves denim. She would be over every day looking at it.
  22. Looks good. I like that shade of blue. What type of material is it?
  23. Here is a 49 Chevy with the hood ornament.
  24. May be the letters on the hood. Also Mercury trucks used individual block letters.
  25. Hope you enjoyed your time in Ocala. The weather has been perfect for the car show. I am thinking the emblem is from 1954. It is the same as the centers on the 54 hubcaps.
