  1. Free: 1960 Ford used, driver quality grille, grille surround moldings and headlamp doors. Mounting hardware is NOT included. These parts were removed from a 65K mile car. The headlamp doors have slight road rash but overall nice condition. There are dents in the left upper grille molding and center upper grille molding. I will not ship. If you are interested you or a representative must pick them up at my house located in the NW suburbs of Chicago. rln31455@yahoo.com
  2. I need one box of eight 1960 Ford NOS hydraulic lifters. Part number B8S-6500-A. Thanks. Rick rln31455@yahoo.com 847 398 8549
  3. Not mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/132979392236
  4. No scam by PM. I was asked to text to a phone number that was provided in the PM. When I texted my requests to that phone number a "?" was my only reply. The actual scammer contacted me through email.
  5. Wanted: 1960 full-size Ford rear bumper. NOS or excellent used with no dents or tow damage. Thanks. Rick I've had three responses to this ad. All three made me feel uncomfortable with the most recent being an obvious scam. I've deleted my contact information and will not respond to any PMs. Be aware of emails from an individual named Carl Maverick.
  6. I believe you are talking about the fiber optic cable. The cable connected to a bulb with a special socket inside the door. It illuminated the thermometer when the park or headlamps were on. There was no temperature sensor for the mirror. My experience was with Oldsmobile. Buick was probably the same.
  7. Looks like a 1950. The grille wraps around the fender towards the wheel well on a 1950. You can see the grille extending towards the wheel well on your grandfather's car. I don't think a 1949 grille would be visible when photographed from the rear 3/4 view in your photo.
  8. Not mine. I know nothing about this car. Really is sad to see. Does anyone know the story of this car? https://www.copart.com/lot/40501237
  9. This is the house at the address on the ID card. I expected something a bit more upscale.
  10. Not mine. I know nothing about it. It might be worth a look. https://roanoke.craigslist.org/cto/d/1941-cadillac-fleetwood/6371765029.html
  11. Check the canister purge valve. Look on your under hood vacuum diagram to locate it. They can cause a lot of drivability problems and intermittent check engine lights. When vacuum is applied to the top port (the one that is supplied vacuum from the carb) it should hold vacuum. There should be no fuel visible at this port. If either of these conditions exists the diaphragm is ruptured and the valve needs to be replaced. Good luck.
  12. I believe Fleek is correct. The parts book shows the same rear door part number for Galaxie Town Sedan, Fairlane Town Sedan, Galaxie Town Victoria and all four door wagons. I think the actual door assembly will fit all of those bodies. There is no frame for the glass on a Town Victoria. You may have to break the welds and exchange the glass frame from one style to another. I could not find part numbers for the glass frames. It doesn't mean there are no part numbers. It just means I couldn't find them. I hope this helps.
  13. This is the place to go to for assistance with your truck. A lot of knowledgeable, helpful people at this site. Good luck with your project. https://www.earlyfordv8.org/index.cfm
  14. http://www.lebaronbonney.com They were an exact match for the two cars I reupholstered. A 60 and 61 Sunliner. Very good to work with. They were able to match the material that I needed.
  15. Not mine. May be worth a look. http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/5966984583.html
  16. Marty is correct. We used white lithium grease at the dealer back when cars had speedometers. One other bit of advice, be sure there is no grease remaining in the top of the cable housing that connects to the speedometer head. When re-connecting the cable it is possible for grease to be forced up into the speedometer. This will cause the speedometer to malfunction. In some cases it will be impossible to clean the speedometer with out causing damage. Good luck.
  17. There should be a special tool designed to fit over the bolt that retains the wheel cover. Look in the glove box or where the spare tire is stored. In the event of a missing key, there were special wheel lock removal tools available when these cars were new. Some older mechanics may have one in their tool box. If you can't find the correct tool it may be possible to force a tight fitting socket over the bolt to loosen it. Soak the bolt with penetrating oil for a few days if they are rusty. Good luck.
  18. Appears to be a great car at a very reasonable price. I'm not in a position to purchase another car or I would surely consider your '36. You might want to try listing it here: http://www.earlyfordv8.org/Classifieds.cfm Good luck.
  19. I learned through an email that the name of the dealer was Brand Motors Ford City. They were located on 22nd St. Any photos or additional information would be appreciated. Thanks.
  20. Does anyone have any information/photos of Brand Ford? They were a dealership located in Los Angeles California. I'm interested in the late '50s early'60s era. Google has not been much help. Thanks.
