Speakin' of hoods; any idea on finding a bullnose like this? Aftermarket? Off another car?
I think its one year hood chrome only.
Thanks; you're right of course, it must be a stock '41 molding, the lack of the V/8 or 6 emblem was throwing me off. Back to the drawing board, I guess.
Just brought my 47 home after a few weeks in the body shop getting the rear end fixed up after a kid in a Ford Escape ran into me.
Spent most of the night last night stealing pics off this thread.... For ideas of course

Finally, assembly time, sure is great not having to remove parts again , Front Clip and Trunk lid should be painted this coming weekend
Took the coupe out for a Sunday drive with the ol' lady for a road side picnic.
Like the way you rounded the corner of the hood. Do you plan on doing the bottom the same way.?
The cowl looks clean with the front vent smoothed over. Waiting to see it finished.
Khead47, can you tell us about your seat upholstery? It looks to be a black leather, or simulated material, with reddish distressed marks! I like it!
^^^^^^^^ Pattern is called English Pub. Still available.

Pulled the headers to repaint while the front clip was off. They were advertised as fitting Fat Fender Fords when I bought them but my 48 was too Fat LOL
Ended up using an extra set of flanges/gaskets along with denting some areas to make work.
Any one else have this (she's too fat for my headers) trouble
Can Mercury play?
Wow great color, doe you have a name or maybe a code for that red?
Yup! When I started this thread a million years ago, I was considering a '46 sedan purchase and wanted some post-war inspiration to help in the decision process. I'm glad to open it up for '41 to '48 Fords and Mercs 'cause we're all in the family!
I read somewhere in this thread that 42 models might be OK?
Here's my 47.......
Wow, that buffed out nice !
