    Buying a new car or truck in Canada?

    Are their any physical differences between Canadian and US trucks? For example, would the 2018 F150 for Canada have any differences in equipment or trim compared to a US market truck. At one time the Canada models all seemed to have engine block heaters, understandably so, but anything else?

    1960 Thunderbird

    Maybe it’s a 352 hipro engine?

    Bishop and Babcock in line thermostat

    Neat item! Never saw one like it. The patent numbers may help date it.

    Sears Allstate tires

    The orange colored Allstate tins with the map of the USA on them for oil, tire repair etc are quite collectible. Maybe the tires are too for man cave use. Living in a small town as I did as a kid meant Sears was your go to place for most everything. We also had some auto supply store, can’t remember the name, that sold some really bargain basement tires under their house brand. The really big sellers were the recap tire places. They were popular into the 1980s. As a poor college kid the recap dealers got a lot of my business!

    Wanted ANY Pre-1929 touring car (Please read for insight)

    I’m in PA too so I’ve been looking in the weekly farming related newspaper I get as they have a for sale section that includes some really unusual stuff. For example 1999 Lincoln runs & drives for $2500, a Chevy S10 for $2800, lots of old tractors for $3k or less and a 1936 Ford Woody wagon for $55,000. No touring cars in the range the poster wants. Many times Ford T stuff shows up so I’ll keep looking.

    Help request for year of a fire truck

    I’ve seen the old DB logo on a 1950 B series firewall ID plate I once had so I guess they continued its use for a long time after the logo disappeared on the front of cars and trucks. I really like the job rated slogan they came up with after the 1930s.

    Help request for year of a fire truck

    Dodge Brothers emblem was last used on 1938 trucks from what I found over the years. I had a 1937 DB MC pickup for many years and the research I did indicated that 1938 was the end of the traditional DB emblem on the radiator emblem.

    Looking for 1950 Ford F1 to restore

    1950s trucks are very desirable. Vintage Truck magazine is a good place to look along with Hemings Motor News. Don’t be shocked at the price they bring!

    1952 MG TD

    Nice car, very sorry to hear the owner did not have a lot of time to enjoy it. It’s one of my favorite cars from my youth. Always wanted to own one but never did. Like Keiser, retirement and for me, physical disability means I can only look.

    Some early cars will show up at lower prices because they don’t have much of a following and parts for them a hard to find. Early Fords are your best bet for cars available and ready access to parts. Dodge Brothers seem to have a good following too. Good luck with your search!

    Chevrolet 1940 TC Coupe "Fangio"

    Seller says car is in Florida. Not sure why the information was not posted here.
  13. Some had the insignia of the make, others just filled the hole. I think this one just filled the hole.
