  5. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: simplyconnected</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Shouldn't blinds be black so you can see THROUGH them? </div></div> It is printed on the box that these blinds were painted in a nuetral color to both block out sunlight but match the cars interior.

I don't need your stupid comments about being uninformed....I am going exactly by the label that is on the box itself!...
  7. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Phil Knapp</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Hi Robert, Whoever made up the specifications for these blinds apparently wasn't aware of the different configurations of rear windows in pre-war Fords, Mercurys and Lincolns. Oddly enough, all of these cars used the SAME rear window, so these blinds will fit any and all of these cars. --------------------------------------------------------- 1941-48 Ford 2-door, 4-door & Club Coupe 1940-48 Lincoln 2-door 1940-48 Lincoln 4-door 1940-48 Lincoln Club Coupe and 1940-41 Lincoln Business Coupe 1941-48 Mercury 2-door, 4-door & Club Coupe -------------------------------------------------------- 1937-40 Fords, 1936-39 Zephyrs and 1939-40 Mercurys had split rear windows. The blinds might work but they would probably look funny. By the way. there were NO 1937-38 Mercurys. </div></div> Thank You for bringing the (37 Merc)Typo to my attention...I have now corrected that. I am just going by what is labeled on the box, I did not make up these specs and yes like i said, they will fit all those years and maybe some others. As far as split windows go, i guess they will fit but it's a personal Opinion on how they look.
  8. Up For Sale is this set of NOS Venetian Blinds. These have never been mounted or outside of box. These blinds are the perfect additon to any restoration. One of the Hardest to Find Accessories! Unlike some other blinds you will find, These blinds were made in the USA by ALLSTATE and already come assembled, avoid the hours of frustration trying to find all the pieces and put them together. They are ready to install, just snap them in! Complete with copy of instruction sheet. They measure approx. 32" across at the widest point and 12 1/2" high, top to bottom on the installation bars. A great gift for anyone with a Classic Car! These Blinds were made to fit these years and models and possibly other interchangable models and years... <span style="font-weight: bold">1937-48 Ford 2-door, 4-door & Club Coupe 1937-48 Lincoln 2-door 1937-39, 1941-48 Lincoln 4-door 1939 & 1941-48 Lincoln Club Coupe and 1937-39 Lincoln Business Coupe 1939-48 Mercury 2-door, 4-door & Club Coupe </span> <span style="font-weight: bold">I only have 3 sets left and i am aksing $600. each set + shiping so if you are interested e-mail me at: shrtdog99@yahoo.com </span>
  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Rolf Burdette</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Bill U, that was a very generous offer you made to Short, but he seemed to have missed it, are you able to cut down some larger old style brake lining for riveted 12" shoes so it will fit H-L's?? I have a bunch of them, the shoes look the same, except they are much wider than the H's, '49 and up?? I have no idea, but I know you do, and Short, Bill also has a '40Z, not a connie- </div></div> Rolf, You had a bad day or what? I didn't miss the offer...Bill planely said that he tried to get a set of vent Rubbers from Narragansett and that they only had Connie ones which were completly different...and i apprecite him giving the heads up, I never said that he had a Connie...I know he has a 40 Zephyr, It's only in his user name! Chill out Man! I came on here to seek advice from guys who know more than i do.....but you don't have to act like you know it all. Like i said in the post, any and all help is appreciated. This is my first Zephyr and i am sorry for being ignorant about them....Give me a Break!
  10. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Rolf Burdette</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I think Narragansett has expanded in to Z's as well as Connies on their rubber stuff, for heavens sake, call around and get some catalogs!!- </div></div> Dude whats wrong with asking guys who know Zephyrs...where to get parts? I did say that i was going to look into Narragansett (meaning get a catalog) but only after you recomended them to me...why do i want to order a shelf full of Non Zephyr catalogs??

If you look back, i said that Pics (Meaning Pictures)can be deceaving. Lighten Up, any help you give is taken and appreciated.

I'll thank them for putting on the correct grille piece though..
