  1. Steering Wheel Colors

    For '39' s they should be a dark maroon , the same color as the knobs on door handles (and the steering column) The plastic resin of those times did not last long or age well. Have read somewhere some started to crack after a few years.
  2. Oil dipstick, 1939 Roadmaster

    A nice car. I suggest you talk (off line) to Pete Philips (is on the forum) 1939 engine mounts are a 1 year only design. But a 320 ci from many year will fit into a '39 1939 transmission are a 1 year only design, with many 1 year only parts. Some parts fit a range of years. No matter what number is stamped on it, it does look like a later engine (dip stick location and circular side breather) Does the block have a cast in square pad with 4 tapped holes near the front? Fuel pumps and oil filters are easily changed (to better items). Could have happened any time the last 70 years

  6. WTB 1939 Buick Special Gearbox

    Every '39 owner should have a spare gearbox. Many 1 year only parts. But generally the same parts wear out in all of them.
  7. Utes

    No agreed Aussie definition, but the body and deck in 1 continuous body shell is more what purists call as a "ute" Many sold in the last decade have a separate body and tray. but still advertised a "ute" Ford have stooped car/ute/SUV production in Australia and only a few weeks left before Toyota & GM Holden stop production for good. 100% imports from then There El Camino in Aussie, including 1959-60 and others from 1970's; as well as Ford Ranchero's
