    Check with Mike Samson Ill. also check with the Vintage Rod Shop in BC Canada , I sold him one last year.
  7. David, Im surprised you would endorse Carroll Leather when the very hides that you recommended to Restorer32 are advertised as thinner that the hides I bought and more than 5 times as much money. What I have in hand and are top notch quality. Ive learned after almost 60 years of living not to believe every expert opinion. Ive learned my lessons by actions and not words of others. My only reason that I posted about the black graphite hides I bought as they are great quality , great size and a great price. I really wish I didn't say anything about them and just used them. My motive was to bring to light the sellers web site as I was impressed with the what he sold me and the great service I received and the great total refund promise if I wasn't happy. Im not trying to get into a volley of words , just setting the record straight. Have a good afternoon! Your friend , Mike West
  8. I would suggest calling the owner and visit with him. He is very anxious to do business. Im not an upholsterer but I have bought hides for several high end restorations and they satisfied me. You are correct that only the Graphite Black is on sale.
  9. I have a early Mustang coupe , clean original. The number on the inner fender is 5F07C305089 The registration number is 4F07C305089 The fender date code is 9 25 D3 and the code on the water pump boss above the water pump is 4J17W What do all these numbers tell me? Thank you Mike

    You aren't looking at the right place . Lay on the ground behind the rear end and look where the right (passenger side) axle tube enters the center housing. There is a narrow boss on the casting facing you and stamped in the aluminum will be the ratio -example 12 /52 You are looking at the top to see the oberdorfer Syracuse NY business... I wouldn't be interested -too far away. Other wise I would buy it , take it apart and see for parts .
  12. I thought the 4 because it was actually manufactured in the fall of 64. The inner fender is clearly stamped with a 4 yet the VIN # has the 5 in it.

    Where are you located? Its worth more than scrap. Check out the gear ratio stamped in the case and tell us what it is. Measure the wheel base .It looks like 132 inch from the pics It could be 125 inches.

    David is one of the "sharper knives in the drawer"... I knew he was playing the crowd! and I was happy to point it out. Just for everyones information that doesn't already know it, A Franklin has a" HOOD FRONT" The proper name for the grill shell assembly and so called out in the parts drawings.

    David If he finds a Franklin Radiator it will be a rare one. !!! He should check the ring and pinion ratio stamped on the right side of the case where the right axle tube enters the center section and see what it is. I don't see any value in the wheels or chassis. (Rust and wood rot) The springs are 1931 153 series .

  22. This drum shaped magneto drive must of had a another sleeve that could clamp tightly over this piece. The straight flat spline was used to adjust the timing. Im missing the piece that clamps over this drum and connects the mag . Does anone recognize this type drive? The OD of the drum measures 1.250 inches. I hate to remove this drum and use a modern coupling. Thank you Mike West 585 738 1541 (PS The motor is a 1911 Wisconsin Model L, T head 6.)
