  1. Could be for wires to escape to the headlights... Frank
  2. I also drive my cars and have little interest in getting a plastic trophy. As such, I have installed radial tires on both my Model A roadster and my 1954 Ford Sunliner. The ride is much safer, in my opinion and does not take away from the 'feel' of driving an antique car. I draw the line at modern radials, since I think the look of the lower profile just does not go with the older cars. Instead, I chose the radials that look like bias ply tires, but that was my choice. It's like oil, I just would not run my older cars with oil of the 30's (even if I could find some). For headlights, I just installed a set of 7 " LED lamps on the 54 that I purchased from Rodtiques. These have a sealed beam body with a replaceable LED bulb. The run on 12 volt minus ground, but you can get an inverter to change the source from 6 volt plus ground. They are outstanding and draw far less current than the halogen bulbs. I think you would be more than satisfied with these replacements. Frank
  3. In my 59 National Service Data, the only violet wire I can find is for the directional lights, both front and rear. Not too much help. Try following the wire to the other end and see what it feeds... Frank
  4. #480 is a Ford wide 5 used in mid thirties. #477 with the bow tie is early 50's. #477 with the word Chevrolet is late 40's Truck. #468 wheel cover with the bow tie perimeter is 1955.

  6. The slanted windshield make it after 1923 Frank
  7. The brighter filament is the brake/directional... Frank
  8. The angle of the photo makes it a bit harder, but how about a 37 Ford... Frank
  9. I said 26 because I could not find a photo of a 25 with the headlight bar. All the 25's I found were bar-less. Frank
  10. I agree with 25 or 26 Overland. This car is from Australia, so they may have had cowl lights, just a guess... Frank
