  4. dennis, another name is speed nut, tubular type.restoration specialties and supply company, p.o. box 328, winber pa. 814-467-9842. you will need to mike or use a digital caliper for correct size. thanks, ray.
  5. '64 hood ornament[i think]
  6. ford parts are trim rings for 50 ford, trunk emblem for 50, V-8 is [i think] off 50's pickup. all are being re-poped and only parts worth anything are the trim rings, 5 bucks each would be fair.
  7. changed my mind after checking my stock, 57 ford for sure, i do not know if merc is same, thanks.
  8. 1950 ford crestliner horn button, rare and expensive. the horn ring is "X" shaped to march the spokes in thge steering wheel. the "F" is called stlylized.
  9. fleek is right. not a rare part.
  10. i would guess between nov 1st 1947 and jan 31st 1948?
  11. i have just thurs mailed the bell crank with throttle rods attached to dennis long[he is on this forum]. i do not remember the bends peecher is refering to as being on the carb rod. the accel rod is a two piece adjustable on the stuff i mailed dennis. i only sent him the front half of that part since rthe other part was rusted tight to the accel pedal. all this came off my 46 continental parts car. you may want to contact dennis for pictures and/or confirmations. thanks, ray.
  12. looiks great!!! one helluva run!! i wish i had something left from my 34 master tudor to give you but a few pictures and a lot of good memories are all that is left. we will wait for updates and i sure am proud of what you did with what some people might call a pile of scrap. that would scare the average man to start with only what you had.
  13. they are 56 passenger, 55 look same except background color is red. these are necessary with wire spoke accessory both are plentifull and repoped.
  14. landman, where are you? i may be going into withdrawal symptons soon! hope all is well, i miss your input, thanks, ray
  15. that looks like first class work from a first class shop!i am impressed with both you guys. thanks!!!
  16. landman, my vote is: first, the cabriolet second, the dark brown coupe very good work!! i think you should consider doing a station wagon next. with your skills and patience you could put together a nice wagon and it would be worth a bunch. i also like the work your panel beater does, it looks like he is a sharp metal worker. i still visit this site at least twice daily. thanks for posting!!!
  17. i am proud of you!!! most people i know would not have tried a vechicle needing wood and metal to that extent. i look every day to see how you solved the next problem. dean and company had a lot more to work with, both tools and vechicle condition. uhm maybe next chore will be to build a welding table?? hang in there, we all are following along!!
  18. landman, yu are my hero!! my first car was a 34 chevy master tudor with the trunk on the back. as i remwmber the trunk was not removable. drove it all thru high school, sold it in 1953 still a good car. the wood in the doors was "loose" but they worked. i think you are doing super work and you are one brave man to take on a project that involved. i will follow your progress daily. thanks for posting, it helps us older guys keep going.
