No oil filter on this car. The `55 Chevy 265 V8 didn't come with an oil filter. All the air cooled Volkswagens did not have an oil filter, and the...
Guy wearing his A2 jacket & `32 roadster
I noticed something odd about the "A" pillar also, there seems to be something extending down from the windshield post. You can see there is a...
a `36 roadster with popular post WW2 add ons, the pines trim around the grill and hood, spider hub caps,
fog lights, grill guard, bumper...
That looks like a `36 roadster , not a cabriolet.
with some popular post war add ons, such as the skirts with emblems, spot lights, and maybe...
The " Dairy Mart" in Huntley. IL , been there since 1955. But recently the State widened route 47 to make room for "growth" and they lost a lot...
If you want to be authentic, those are #12x24 sloted head screws that hold the "dog house" cap to the firewall on a `32 Ford. A rather odd size...
I had one for a while. I thought they were strictly a race car item, since they won't fit between a flathead in it's normal position, and the...
My grandfather , Ira ( born in1901), and his buddy, Elmer, drove this one in 1924 from Chicago to North Dakota and back, to work the wheat...
The one on the left looks like a new reproduction `30-`31 rumble handle because of the longer shank to fit through
My original ( early type ) doors have that inside of them also. It's original. If you want it out of there, maybe you could
cut away as much as...

The A2 jacket
Howard, out of fuel 1935
17" Bell ? four spoke
Some things just don't leave room for improvement
Now that we see his name spelled correctly, was he any relation to Jack McGrath the early fifties track roadster and Indy driver ?
That looks more like a `39. A `32 would be about the same length, but would require an offset form to pass between the pedals. If you bent a `39...
Mill an 1/8" off each side of the axle. Or why not use a model "A" wishbone ?
polished aluminum ? I once owned a Cessna 120 , mostly bare aluminum. When I finally thought I was done polishing it, it was time to start over !
On mine I had to put a shim behind the rear pinion bearing , in front of the pinion gear, to move it back toward the ring gear more. Because even...
WOW ! That's a rare item. I owned a normal cast iron one once, but never knew any were made in aluminum.
That's cool, but you might want a bigger trunk, for traveling.[ATTACH]
Try confirming a good ground, by clamping a good jumper cable to the ground on the battery and to that bolt you see going through the starter...
