I would be interested in the ac on the v-12 I saw one on a 41 at Dearborn meet in 1959 so I know it can be done. I'm going to drive my 42 so ac would be a great advantage here in Florida. Lee

This is how it appears on our 1940. With just a little bit more creativity, a little shaving of the standard "ears" off the compressor, and painting it black, it would look almost normal. There is a 6-volt battery in the engine compartment, and another 6-volt battery in the trunk, run in series. All original electrics run off of the front battery only.

I found the car on a farm rusted out and no motor. Bought the car, found picks of a real convertible sedan, cut, slice and dice to get same look as original. Made a folding top. Made a double wall frame with crossmember. Added a V8 and some paint, then went for a drive to a show in Detroit where someone really liked it. I agreed to let him take care of it for me if he paid me. Some might say it's sold, but after all that work I still like to think it's mine. I still have my 38 and 39 coupes.

Just finished a complete brake job, installed new muffler, and repaired the electrical problem at the distributor I've been struggling with for a while. Thanks to all of your posts, otherwise it would have sat much longer. Now I need to stop oil leak and oil consumption.

Hi, I need a good core steering wheel for my 1939 Zephyr sedan. One that I can send out to be restored. That way I can still drive my car until I get the restored steering wheel.
