  1. Trucks had the T so it matches. The plates on the body are often gone and unless it happens to be titled by the body serial number there is not a way to determine the original number.

  2. They really are not vin's but serial numbers. Vin's came much later. Here is a picture that might help.

     

    There was also a car serial number plate which was on the passenger side seat riser or sill, can't remember which on the 29.

     

    What are you trying to do?

  3. Try to find the post by ply 33 that describes repairing a temp gauge. What I remember you buy a new gauge from a parts store, put the bulb in dry ice, and solder the line on to your tube. Lots of comments on how dangerous it might be but I would do it if needed.

  4. All good suggestions. You might try pulling the choke out a little as you accelerate and see if it runs better. Like Old Buick said it may be lean past idle.  

     

    Let us know.

  5. The battery may have been stuck somewhere in the supply chain and was damaged by sitting without being charged. Lots of other possibilities but I would bet on that one.

  6. I think I would try and find the correct pump first. The AC catalog I have lists 428 and with a part number change, pump number 587. It is a B series pump , I will attach a general picture of B series.

     

    I have dealt with Then and Now on fuel pumps and they are very good. https://www.then-now-auto.com/fuel-pumps/

     

    I am presuming you have the original engine. We probably should start a new thread on the pump since it is a different subject.

  7. An experienced gentlemen that was helping me get ready for my first judged show considered judging as a way to improve his cars and I have adopted that way to look at it.

     

    He also believed strongly I should be a part of the judging process and would learn from participating. He was right, judging was a great way to help with the  show and they got someone to do the chassis.

  8. There was a man who worked at Dixie Sales Co. in Greensboro, NC  that had a dent about the size of a ball-peen hammer in his forehead. I asked about it and they told me he had been in outside auto parts sales for them until one day a shop owner slid out from under a car and hit him with a hammer.

     

    Had a change in career.
