  1. ^This^ The modification appears well done and the styling isn't horrible, but a more 57-ish roof looks better:
  2. Number formats differed among countries in which the vehicles were produced, but I believe the Ford-prescribed numbering procedure was the same everywhere (which is not to say every plant faithfully adhered to it). Anyway, the engine/transmission assembly was numbered when it passed testing. When it was installed in a chassis, the number was stamped in several places on the frame. That was done by hand, so sometimes the prefix was omitted, numbers weren't clear, etc. But supposedly the engine/transmission and frame numbers matched. At least in the US, the "engine number" commonly was used for title purposes, probably because the chassis numbers cannot be easily seen without removing the body. Regardless whether it's called the engine number or chassis number, it's the same number and is the serial number of the car.
  3. Just a guess, but could the rings be part of inside door pulls...
  4. Yup, that's about when manufacturers started using "streamlined" design. The idea was to reduce wind resistance but it also helped the appearance.
  5. Here's a link to a photo of one - says it's the only one left in the world: And here's a link to what appears to be the same car with top up (scroll down page) - note it has removable glass quarter windows: And here's the factory brochure - note no quarter windows; must have been added when car went into production:
  6. I'd guess late-50s/early-60s MoPar. The rub strips and pointy stanchions look pretty close to the rack on this 59 Chrysler.
  7. Brand name of a manual that lists which parts interchange on various cars
  8. Recently sold by Bob's Classics - no, not to me. Manufactured by Baron - for some reason, titled as 32 Chrysler with Cadillac engine and sorta Rolls grill. That's not the most flattering pic but as neo-classics go, the car isn't so bad.
  9. Yup, and fringed window shade also says hearse. But there's what appears to be a gurney. Some hearses did double duty as ambulances.
  10. Is it a hole or part of a bumper sticker or some such? If you zoom/enlarge this pic in the eBay ad, you can see it has "34" printed on it:
  11. Typo? Maybe should be instead of - d is next to s on keyboard.
  12. Clips are available for other makes, e.g., Ford, Chevy, etc. Check them out if you can't find the correct clips - they might be the same or at least workable. When I had a 38 Plymouth, some of the minor parts were the same as Ford - possibly the same suppliers originally.
  13. You're right. I went to the first thread that has a picture of the lower half of the tulip: capngrog's post in that thread explains it: The trophy, and maybe the show, was sponsored by Locomobile. LKA is Ladies Kennel Association and SoCal would be southern California. So the plaque decodes as: Trophy for Best St Bernard Ladies Kennel Association of Southern California There is a faint number 10 as the last line. It is not emphasized with paint (or whatever) as are the letters. That leads me to believe it has nothing to do with the trophy inscription. I'd guess it's just the model number of that particular cup style. You're also right it's a different poster, or at least a different username, asking this time.
