  1. Hi, I am new to this forum and I hope I can get some help figuring how to restore my 1940 Fargo truck. The engine is not seized (but dunno if it runs yet), has 70 000 miles and the frame is in good condition. Is it worth repairing the engine/transmission/differential or should I swap frame with a chevy S-10 to get a newer engine and transmission in? I also wonder if I can simply use Jeep 4x4 axel +engine, trans and differential. Thanks all
  2. I have a Pacer truck topper that came off my 1940 Plymouth truck. I believe it was made in the early 60's to early 70's (Mfd. by Robert L. Erekson Trust, Billings Mont.). It fits a short bed truck with a box size of aprox 78" long by 48" wide. I had this on my 1940 truck, but no longer use it. This is very solid construction of wood with metal sheathing. It has been garage kept and show no signs of water damage or deterioration. http://cedarrapids.craigslist.org/pts/4616143078.html The Topper is located in Cedar Rapids, IA
  3. I need a complete pass door window regulator assembly and the track that goes on the bottom of the glass from a 1940 Chrysler Windsor Coupe. I was going to put in power windows after the original regulator went to junk. I have since decided that I want to keep the cranks. I can either pay cash or trade the 2 power window regulators with wiring. 1 unaltered, 1 trimmed to fit the '40.
  4. I need a muffler for my 1940 Buick Series 50.
  5. I have a pair of 1940 Ford front fenders in excellent condition. They are already painted turquoise, have few scratches and no dents or rust. They are for 1940 cars, although I'm told they can be made to fit 1940 pick-ups with some alterations. $999. for the pair.
  6. My grandfather recently gave me the keys to his 1940 Ford Sedan Standard. I'm not a car buff but I am honored more than anyone can imagine. This beauty runs good and the body is in great shape. Should I replace some of the small things like the window handles, radio, antenna, stitch up the interior or just leave it alone? It has a 1950 Flathead from a Ford truck V8 85 Hp. Since some items have already been replaced in the past, will I be deducting some of its worth by replacing some of those parts that wil just look better new? I am NOT interested in selling it but obviously do not want to devalue the car by making unnecessary changes. Open to any and all input. Thanks, this is my first post.
  7. We are restoring a 1940 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe, and none of the standard Lincoln heaters fit the existing holes in the firewall. I should know, I have bought 3 of 'em, thinking one would surely fit. We bought the car mid-restoration, and it came with PART of a heater that does line up with the holes in the firewall. I have included a photo of the partial heater... can anyone identify it? I need the rest of it. There must be some type of fan motor/blower assembly that affixes to the heater core part that I have. Apparently, this was a heater delete car, and somewhere along the line someone added this [most likely aftermarket] heater. ANY information to identify or locate parts for it would be appreciated. Thank you so much! Dave

  9. I have four and a half boxes of packing for Dodge water pumps. The part number is 309082. I am not sure what years it would work for, it came in a WWII/1943 foot locker.

I just want someone who could use them to get them, thanks for looking. Thanks, Jay email at doz2977@comcast.net
  10. I am looking for a 1939 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe Street Rod. The car must be an automatic and in really good condition. The price depends on the condition of the car, extras and so on but the budget is around $20,000. Message me here or at Parts Trader Car Antique Vintage Collectible

  18. :confused: I have removed all of the valves from the engine. Now I need to get the springs out. Is there a trick to this? I have the big snap-on valve spring compressor that looks like a giant c-clamp. It doesn't do much good once the valves are out. Should I try to grab one of the lower spring coils and remove the retainer plate so that the tappet will enter the spring and thus allow the spring to drop low enough to remove? Do I need to get a different type of spring compressor? Any ideas are welcome. I need to get these out so I can remove the cam and get the block hot tanked. Thanks.
  19. I need a radio for a 1940 Oldsmobile Series 70 4-Door Sedan, OR any other equivalent. I have searched all over the internet and can't find anything. Much Appreciated, -Fin
