  1. The top of my b pillar was removable just as an original 38 would have been. I made c channels to press fit into original c channel frame and then weld. This would make it a double wall c channel frame, plus a X member added. I'm not in a hurry for handles, when you get to them, just let me know. I'm near Toronto. d.jolly@sympatico.ca
  2. Just for fun here is a convertible 37 I made in the 90's. I had to reinforce the frame. I will have my custom convertible 38 zephyr at Detroit Autorama if you are going. Also, I would be interested if you had two 39 door handles without any dents for my 39 coupe.
  3. Mine leaked. I had to drop the pan, remove the float and re-solder the float. I wonder if when it heats up the air inside, it pushes the oil out of the float and when the engine and float cool, the air in the float contracts and sucks a little oil back in. Then the float sinks again.
  4. Billorn, yes the top folds down as original convertible would.
  5. Yes, I still have the 39 coupe. Taking it Cobble Beach Concours in two weeks.
  6. My 38 looks somewhat similar to the Stoustrup Lincoln, although I made it from a coupe. Sorry about cutting up a coupe.
  7. Looks like rear inner fender gravel shield that goes behind rear tire, but not 37,38 or 39.
  8. There was an article in WOTZ in the 90's about making your own running board trim from solid aluminum that has almost the same profile as original. I made my own for 4 zephyrs I've done and was happy the way they turned out. Not original, but most people can't tell the difference. I got the aluminum from Extrude-A-Trim.
  9. Do you know why they went back to original?
  10. Thanks for advice guys. My car has been on the road for 4 years after I restored it. I am considering the dual master for safety. The car stops pretty well now. No real issues, just thinking of safety. The mustang has 1" bore and I think my 39 might be 1 1/16. Not sure, can't remember.
  11. Thanks for the info Ray, I'll check out Speedway.
  12. Has anyone converted their 39 zephyr to dual master cylinder? If so, did you use a 67 mustang manual drum/drum master?
  13. Has anyone converted their 39 zephyr to a dual master cylinder? Did you use 67 mustang master for manual drum/drum system? Thanks Dave
  14. A friend found this at an antique store and gave it to me. We don't know what it is. Any ideas? Key fob? About 3 inches long.
