  1. Cruised the neighborhood in the '32 Plymouth coupe...
  2. I'm totally in Boz's Camp.
  3. Messr. Bwatoe, John Sweet sent me some pictures of the meet from which I made a slideshow. Check it out HERE.
  4. According to the Website (Lincoln-Zephyr Owners Club), under "Frequently Asked Questions" -- Does the Zephyr Club have historical information on the ownership of these cars? I'd like to know where my car was originally sold and who has owned it in the past. No, the club doesn't have any of this information. You may be able to get some manufacturing and delivery information from the archives of the Ford Motor Company. We suggest you contact: The Benson Ford Research Center P.O. Box 1970 20900 Oakwood Blvd. Dearborn, MI 48124 Telephone: 313-972-6070 Fax: 313-982-6244 Email: rescntr@hfmgv.org The Museum holds the bulk of the early Ford historical records, 1903-1950.
  5. Bill, I suggest you check out the thread called "1922 Parts Help" from about a week ago on this forum. Lots of good suggestions. The Lincoln Owners Club is the one you want.
  6. The "Before and After" comparison on this car is a tremendous credit to Mike, the craftsman. He saved a car that was destined for the scrapheap.
  7. I would check with the folks at Restoration Supply, Inc. It looks a lot like the hose that was used for acetylene lamps.
  8. Mr. Lynch, I received mine a couple of weeks ago.
  9. Nate, I have had my PB coupe for over 50 years and am currently rebuilding a PB roadster. All the fenders, front and rear, are unique to the Model PB. They're not interchangeable with anything else. Also, the rear fenders come in a couple of different versions, depending on the body style. The closed cars and the convertible coupe were built in the Briggs body plant and are all steel with the exception of the top bows. The roadsters and phaetons were built by Chrysler in the old Maxwell body works and have lots of wood supporting the body. None of the body panels except the hood and front fenders are interchangeable. You can see some of the details, including some details about those step supports on my Web site, https://sites.google.com/site/hotrodroadster/ Good luck finding fenders! Bob Mead
  10. Wes, I have had excellent products and services from Y n' Z's Yesterdays Parts. They're in Redlands, CA. Great people to deal with. YnZs Yesterdays Parts | Classic, Antique and Custom Auto Wiring Harness | (909)798-1498 Bob Mead
  11. My chance for a similar trip was in 1969. I described it here in my blog... Best of luck and enjoy your trip!
  12. I received the following email and was asked to post it here. Note that Patrick Crew (not me) is the contact person. My 76-year-old next-door neighbor has mentioned that he wants to get rid of some of his cars that are piled up in and around his property. Being a broke-ass SOB, I can't afford to talk him out of any of them, but I've had a good look and I can't let these get any worse than they currently are. Here are 2 you might be interested in: 1940-ish Zephyr Club Coupe or Coupe Sedan. Half buried in blackberries, but 100% intact with all trim and the V12 engine. Dave said it ran when he parked it 15 years ago. 1946-ish Sedan with the suicide back doors. Same condition, same engine. The Zephryr looks to be cancer-free, while the sedan has blackberries growing in through the floor. I'm not sure what he wants for them or what he'll take for them - but I know he wants them gone. Located just outside of Corvallis, Oregon Pat Crew Email: patrick.crew@comcast.net Phone: 541-286-4650 I will gladly filter Dave's calls and send serious folks his way. He also has a 1953 Buick Woody Estate, 1957 Mercury Montclair Conv't, 1951 Cevrolet Sedan delivert, 1967 El Camino, 1962 Thunderbird Roadster, and a 1965 Thunderbird Coupe - condition similar to above. All are intact, complete, and very rough. Here are some pictures:
  13. Beautiful! That's going to be a very nice vehicle. Congratulations.
  14. I suggest loading up a few parts, grabbing a pencil and some paper to jot down notes, and going for it. Read about my similar experience in the '60s. Young at Heart and Mind: The Great Lincoln-Buying Expedition
  15. I was born in 1940. I started working in a filling station in 1948 and immediately decided I wanted to own a 1948 Lincoln Continental Convertible. I got one in 1967. My other two are older than me -- a 1932 Plymouth Model PB business coupe (that I've owned for 50 years) and a 1932 Plymouth Model PB sport roadster. Two out of three ain't bad. I got the coupe by accident; Found it while looking for a Model A Ford. The roadster I wanted because it was a car I lusted after in high school but couldn't afford.
  16. Mike, I've been following your thread. When you checking out any seatframe, make sure it's for a 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet and not for the Lincoln Zephyr Convertible Coupe. I suspect they're different.
  17. There's no doubt -- It's a Model PB. I've had mine for fifty years. They're wonderful cars.
  18. As I understand it, you are correct. The forum will remain as-is.
  19. Harry, The "new" Web site is the redesigned AACA Web site. Just go to Antique Automobile Club of America The site is very nicely redesigned, IMHO.
  20. One of our members transplanted a '48 Continental cabriolet onto a '77 Town Car chassis. He told me the wheelbase was only 1 inch different and he centered the front wheels in the wheel cutout and let the rear wheels be one inch too far back. Nobody even notices with the skirts on the car. He kept the body and interior intact, but has a 460 with automatic transmission, A/C, power brakes and steering. It looks good and is a great road car. He saved a very rusty car in the process.
  21. X-Frame, Simply look in your club directory (roster). If you're not a member yet, you need to be. Simply go to the "Membership" page of the LZOC Web site for full instructions.
  22. Dave, I think your best bet may be Lebaron-Bonney (LeBaron Bonney Company - Antique Auto Upholstery).
