  1. Those thick manifold to carb gaskets I don't think are available any longer. They are just there to insulate the carb from manifold heat so stacking thin gaskets are fine. The only thing to watch for is when stacking the thin gaskets the overall needs to stay the same. If it is not the same height the air cleaner bracket that goes from the air cleaner to the head will be off kilter.

    My "New" '51 Chieftain Deluxe Eight 4-Door

    Hey Kyle, The Early Times Chapter (ETC) is made up of a great group of people. There's a lot of knowledge in that group. Attending the annual flat head reunions are the best way to getting the most out of an ETC membership. I have been a member for 4 years and have gained a lot of new friends! I would make sure to get a factory manual for your car. That will be your best friend... Chris

    1950 Buick unrestored gem

    pictures please!
  5. I have been there and recently sold my car and now I can't live without it! I guess when you put a lot of your blood, sweat and tears into the car the love affairs gets stronger. The side effect to the 'imgonnafixitrightitis' is 'whileimthereitis'. That side effect just adds time ie: watching paint dry! Chris
  6. I have a 1940 Pontiac Flexible Deluxe steering wheel, horn ring and horn button for sale. This was the optional wheel for 1940! https://www.ebay.com/itm/273504613277

    53 pontiac dash is painted

    I have a Spramax 2k but never used it. You did a beautiful job with it and now I am find a reason to use the one I have.
  8. I am selling front end body parts for a 1940 Torpedo These parts came off a coupe that had a tree fall on it and caused severe damage! Right fender is straight but has a dent above the wheel opening. Left fender is damaged due to the tree. I bet it will be a challenge for a good body man. The core support is straight and structurally sound however there's rust on a non-structural lower panel. The upper rt body panel pictured goes above the rt fender and below the hood. The rt side engine compartment panel has no rust and shows the head light wire holes. Selling these parts as a package for $500.00. The buyer is responsible for shipping and these parts are Please note: The 1940 Pontiac Torpedo model was a GM C-body shared with Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile & Pontiac. The Torpedo was the only Pontiac that used this body and therefore these parts will NOT fit on any other Pontiac!

    1940 Pontiac parts

    I still have the manifolds! I would only sell them together as a matched set. The reason I say matched is because I have found that the flanges that mount to the engine are NOT consistent. I had another set of the same make model and year and those flanges were of a different measurement however this set of manifolds are on my car now.. Additionally I must tell you that the exhaust manifold has a crack in and it's repairable. The manifold I'm using now had a crack and I did have it welded for $100.00. So, to be fair make me an offer using the AACA mail.

    Flat head reunion - west

    This is the email that has been sent out to all ETC members that appear on the roster. If you are not a member or if you haven't receive this announcement yet please take a moment and reply. I am looking to assess the interest in holding another Flathead Reunion on the West Coast. There have been two Flathead Reunions in the West. One was in Morro Bay in 2012 and the other was in Chico in 2016. The Flathead Reunion, sponsored by the Early Times Chapter of POCI, has been an annual event for years. Some West Coast Pontiac owners have traveled to Iowa for the 2018 Flathead Reunion but we would like to have one annually in California, too. The Flathead Reunion has traditionally been a three-day event with tech sessions, local sightseeing, a driving tour, car show, and awards. It is a great way to meet people with common interests and build friendships. Rob Guzzetta and I are working to build the community of Flathead Pontiac owners in California so that we can have more frequent events. If we can start communicating via email and local get togethers we can build a core group so that we can organize a major event such as the Flathead Reunion, West. To do this we need YOU! We ask you to answer to three questions: 1. Do you think you would be interested in attending a Flathead Reunion West someplace in California in 2019 or 2020? 2. Would you attend an informal get together of Flathead Pontiac owners in October? The plan would be to have one get together in Northern California and one in Southern California. 3. Do you have any ideas on how to build Early Times Chapter membership in California and the West. Show your interest by replying to Chris Deacon AND Rob Guzetta for we would love to hear your thoughts/ideas. If you want to see what a Flathead Reunion, West looks like, here are some photos from the 2012 event in Morro Bay: https://flic.kr/s/aHsjzsDkuj Again, please reply to both Rob and me. This will help us gauge the interest and know how to best move forward. Thank you, Chris and Rob Reply to: Chris Deacon - cdeac500@gmail.com Rob Guzzetta - spllithead6fan@gmail.com
