  1. Nope. It is tinting. That Western Auto accessory is a "traffic light viewer".
  2. With an admitted lack of knowledge of 1950 correctness, I personally believe that any whitewall larger than 2 1/2" on a postwar car looks too wide.
  3. Nobody listens to that guy.
  4. Yep. That's all you need IF it's the same as 55. Basically, there are 4 holes in the frame that those bolts go through and then the two semicircular halves get bolted together. I will expound on it when you get them (I can take some pics), but please make sure a 56 guy jumps in and verifies my alternative (year) facts.
  5. Those look the same as 1955. I don't have pics of a 56. PS and Manual mounts are the same in 55.
  6. Cool. I guess that is new. I would still not use brake fluid due to its ability to peel paint.
  7. ^^^
  8. for sale

    Great car Ted!
  9. I think that 38 bug may be scratched soon.
  10. I used ATF because I rebuilt the entire system and HydroElectric (a great company to deal with), insisted on ATF or it would void the warranty. I am guessing if it won't go up that the motor itself needs to be replaced. Just a guess. They are readily available for minimal cash as are the cylinders and hoses. Try filling first. It may work. http://hydroe.com/
  11. Roberta, I had the boards reproduced in plastic, but they only fit the small series cars. The trunk insulation that Brian quoted me on was just the inner trunk lid restoration. Sorry Al, can't help ya.
  12. I use the Mr. Gasket versions all the time. The Carter is good too, but noisy. Don't buy an Airtex.
  13. ...AND there will not be a "sock" in the gas tank on the pickup tube. That is by design, and unless you have a giant piece of crud in there either through bad gas or vandalism, the car will pass it through to the filter. Your English is perfectly fine Daniel.
  14. You ought to sell em to that guy for having such sharp eyes.
  15. I have a bunch of trays that I didn't reinstall on my engines if you want one. No, I'm not really mailing one.... There is no reason to add it. Like Willie said, they came on the early 55's (that I know of), which had the center oil fill tube and no valve cover breathers.
