  1. Well... I believe at auction several mid fifties Adventurer convertibles have done it.
  2. Take these out and have them rebuilt by a reputable shop. I would not trust anything off the shelf. I’ve heard too many horror stories regarding foreign made replacements. Keep yours and have them redone.
  3. Gotta have a green Dodge!
  4. Proceed carefully with cranking that windshield out! Make double sure there’s no glues, silicone sealer, anything that may cause the crank and mechanism to bind up. The crank housing is made from pot metal and will snap like a twig if reefed on! Ask me how I know. You should probably get some grease into the gears there too.
  5. Well Xander, time to move again! Washington state is trying to do the same thing so don’t come here.
  6. Welcome to the forum! Your 36 Dodge grill is going to be the most expensive piece to replace, as you’ve found out. I believe somebody out there does a reproduction piece made of alloy. The original is made of pot metal. Not really weldable.
  7. On the subject of rarely seen 60s or 70s Ford 4x4’s, a guy I knew who owned a towing company at Tahoe City, California, had to make a special order to get a new 1979 Ford 4x4 tow truck because they did not offer them. He said it was like pulling teeth! Funny nowadays cause everybody drives 4x4 trucks.
  8. Super clean originally a ranch truck from Montana. Current owner put chrome hubcaps on and used a holesaw to cut open room for the front axle hubs. Original paint, interior, 352 with 4 speed. Terrific truck!
  9. I miss mine, isn’t that what everyone sez? I bought it from a guy that swapped in 4x4 Bronco running gear, mags with big tires. Chrome grill was great with those big knuckles. Looked like a big Tonka toy. When snow hit, lock in the hubs and let er rip! Shoulda never sold it.
  10. Ed, you better give me your contact info. He firmly believes his one ton has zero collector interest! I told him I used to own a 52 F-1 and he said that is desirable.
  11. I miss my 69 XR7 convertible. Candy apple red with white leather buckets and white top. Chick magnet! Mustangs were nice but the Cougar had it over on them. Question; did any other pony cars of that era get leather seats as an option?
  12. 52 Ford F-3. This old timer drove in to pickup some welding gas at our store today. Along time since she was a daily driver, but great to see out on the road. He said he’s had the truck since he was a teenager and it was painted last in the 70’s. Certainly a trophy winner in the patina category!
  13. Sactownog, Have you sent away for the build card of your car? My 36 Dodge was similarly loaded with options which, during the depression made me wonder, why?You might be in for a story like mine. After the Dodge was painted, I saw a small card under the springs on the rear seat back. It read “San Francisco show” handwritten in cursive. By itself it meant nothing until I got the build card which told me Oct 15, 1935 build date, shipped to San Francisco dealer ship on Van Ness Ave., welled fenders, 6 WWW tires, radio, dual wipers, dual tail lights, chrome disc wheel options. The SF auto sho
