  1. @46Woodie The hood decal on the top of the hood. The plastic tip on mine is broken. Also the plastic vents on the dash, a few of the slats are broken. Is there a main parts house for these or just a bit of hunt because of the rarity? The rest of the trim is in good shape, I plan to pull it all and have it reworked, to pull the dents out and re chromed. I've found a shop in CA called Bumper Boys, struggling locally here in Oregon to find a rechrome shop. @blind pew Currently I'm leaning towards clear coat. I've read on Rick Macks Website how he uses wood toner after the sanding a
  2. @46woodie, So far I know I’m missing the spare tire cover. I have the mount but not the metal cover. I’d also like to get a new front decal for the hood and new rubber. Ive seen bob drake has rubber but any help locating the other would be awesome. I’d love to see photos of the evolution of your 46 if you have some. We got it running today. Sounds amazing. Had to have the radiator recored and order two new water pumps but that’s minimal for a rig that hasn’t ran in 60 years. Need to get some new wheels and tires under her as well. @blind pewgreat to hear I
  3. @NewOldWoodI'm currently reading and researching as much as possible on the wood work. I plan to do as much as possible. The previous owner started on some of the wood work so I'm looking how to pick that up in the best way possible. The current wood is all original and in pretty good shape. In 2008 the owner purchased the attached list of materials from Cincinnati Wood Works to replace the roof headers, bows, and mahogany side panels. I have this kit still intact, with most of it unopened. The exterior passenger side of the van has been stripped from the hardware and has been san
  4. I do like the idea of a reliable and comfortable drive, but I'm also debating keeping it stock. This car is a 2 owner car with 52,000 original miles. It hasn't been on the road since 1960 and garaged ever since. I don't have any intentions to sell it when its complete. I enjoy driving old cars rather than keeping them in the garage. Does it take away from the value by upgrading the drivetrain and such? I'll probably run the flathead for a while until I have the budget to upgrade. Thanks so much for the help.
  5. Thank you fo the help. I'm in Oregon. I'll continue to do some research on parts and I do have the roof gutters. I'm interested in what kind of chassis upgrades people have done to make the drive better. Does anyone have any info or a thread that discuss this? Thanks.
  6. Hi All, I'm looking for a bit of guidance on starting the restoration on a 1947 Ford Woodie I just picked up. It has 50,000 original miles and hasn't been on the road since 1960. Everything is original on the car, including motor and trans. Previous owners started to sand the original wood and purchased a wood kit for the roof from Cincinnati Wood Works in 2009, prior to the shop being closed. All the wood is there it just needs some TLC, there is no rot. I'm looking to do as much wood work as I can myself so any info on the refurbishing process would be appreciated as well as any and all
