  1. Looking forward to your new pics as you progress. I love old trucks.
  2. Not an expert, and do not know if this is correct or not, but here is what one person did on his truck. http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/index.php?threads/kb3-fix-up.98838/
  3. The bus has left the building...

    Our church had a retired Seniccruiser for several years for activities in the late 80's. I drove it many times with a load of teens going on various trips. It had lots of features not common on vehicles made in the 50's such as air conditioning, power steering, air ride, etc. The ac compressor could only turned on with the engine at idle or it would throw the belts but was good at any rpm after the initial start . The old Detroit engine was great but it only had a 4 speed transmission which gave you a real workout in the mountains. The air bags on the right side would leak down before the ones on the left and was a sight to see in a parking lot leaning over a tiny car parked next to it. Fire it up, give it 3 or 4 minutes to build up the air pressure and it would level out and be ready to go. Even well worn by years use by Greyhound, it never let us down. Would love to drive one again.
  4. Moderators Needed

    Please furnish some info on duties and responsibilities involved. This may be something I can help with. Thanks.
  5. Last photo of Grandpa's cars

    The parking light looks like a 51 and the chrome strips from the taillights look 51. Think it is a 51 ford with a mercury grille.
  6. I agree it says FARGO. A Dodge in disguise for import.
  7. I have had several over the years. Great engines. I always used a good brand of 30 weight oil. If you want a multi weight then 10w30 would be good.
  8. Speedometer

    Does it have the size tires that came on the truck? One of the most common causes of the speedometer reading wrong is incorrect tire size. Also if the gears in the rear end have been replaced with other size gears, that can cause the problem.
  9. I had a 60 Ford wagon at one time, and as I remember it, the top of the window frame was squared and the frame on a 4 door sedan had a more rounded shape. I do not know if there were other differences to the doors or not. Google some pics and you can see the difference of the window frame shape.
  10. Fuel pump to carb gas line

    Spend some time at http://oldihc.wordpress.com/ Lots of info here and maybe a lead to the part you need.
  11. I purchased a one year old low mileage Jeep that was off lease for thousands less than a new one. It came with a CERTIFIED factory warrenty that was better that the new car warranty and had passed Chryslers 125 point checklist. Only found one problem after a couple of weeks and it was repaired quickly and they even furnished a loaner car while they worked on mine. To me if it is certified it does not matter where it came from. The dealers have first pick at the Chrysler auctions and get the better cars. The others go to the secondary used car lots.
  12. Clock

    1949 -50 Ford
  13. Candlepower Meter

    just pulled the pic off the web so I do not know the history. I just remembered the old Bear headlight equipment that was in every state inspection station in Texas back in the day. If headlights were not aimed correctly and bright enough the car would not pass.
  14. Candlepower Meter

    Part of an old Bear headlight testing and alignment machine.
  15. I am a truck guy. Any of them can come live with me anytime, but my favorite would be the Ford. To me Ford really nailed it with that style, inside and out. The old 48 - 50 Chevy is my second choice, but I never did care for the style of the early 60's chevy trucks. I had a 69 Dodge pickup for 14 years that I loved. Not the best body style but dependable and got lots of attention. Wish I still had it.
  16. The Ranchero was built on the Ranch Wagon platform which was part of the Custom 300 series so it should use the FORD script. There were some Rancheros that used the upscale Fairlane trim but I do not think they were referred to as a Fairlane so the script remained FORD.
  17. What Ford is this?

    Exposed running boards and door handle below the chrome trim should help date and identify.
  18. Looks like it had a pretty rough life to be 21000 miles. I would like to see the documentation proving the mileage. My in-laws bought a new Maverick and it was a ok car for basic transportation. NADA value for a 6 cyl. Maverick is about half the asking price.
  19. Out from long team storage

    Best of luck with your Case. I saw a nice Case in the Tallahassee Auto Museum a few years ago. I do not remember the year of the car but I remember it as being a very interesting car. It might be worth contacting them to see if they have any info you can use. Here is their website. https://www.tacm.com/
  20. What Ford is this?

    A picture of the dash and instruments would tell a lot about what it is.
  21. 1967 International Dump Truck

    That"s a cool looking ole truck. Where is it located? Says Ohio title but not sure if that is where it is now.
  22. Early US Rolls-Royce dealership?

  23. Early US Rolls-Royce dealership?

    Info on Inskip shows the RR New York city address as 8th ave. and 58th st. if that helps. Interesting read anyway. http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/i/inskip/inskip.htm
  24. Wedding day 1912. Name that auto?

    The Apperson is close, but the radiator shell is not squared off like the pic. in question in my opinion. I did find one Apperson with a squared radiator, but it did not have the rounded windshield.
  25. 1977 Scout II Restoration

    Looking better all the time.
