    My Dad still has this 48 Sedan that my Grandpa bought in 1971. It’s not the same one that he had in 53 though! 9BF49234-5113-419F-9AC9-B176C4FEAE0A.jpeg

    I think the knob might be for the vacuum wiper control, I might be wrong (and I have been wrong before), but I was wondering the same with mine. That's my best guess for the purpose of the knob. Hope this helps

    Guys, you are correct - that knob is for the stock vacuum windshield wiper.

    Heres my 47 fordor project and my first project of this kind. Its gonna be a slow learning process but im a couple weeks in and making headway.

    That particular fender seemed like a good place to start learning how to dolly out body damage. I thinks its coming along ok.

    Well im on a bit of a budget so im not going very pure. I picked up a tight s10 frame the other day thats going under. I also have a pretty tired 5.3 vortec with a 4l60e behind it sitting around and i do like the idea of modern fuel injection for convenience. I will probably end up with a 9" rear under it but i dont need to do that until that 5.3 sees a rebuild and performance parts. The 4l60 will need some love too. Thats all a long way down the road.

    I hope to hold on to the stock frame and running gear in case i ever decide to go back and do things right but I may need to sell things to fund the project.

    As far as custome work goes, I plan to shave it mostly clean and build roll pans. No chop but i want it sitting low as idaho roads will allow on static suspension. Im pretty conflicted on a couple of things; namely door hinges and headlights. I really hate the support hinges that are exterior but the rear door set doesnt have enough room between the rear quarter window and the door jamb for a simple flush hinge. Gonna have to get creative there.

    I damaged the stock passenger headlamp glass and assembly when i was moving things and its got me motivated to get creative there. I dont have any real plans on that front.

    The whole thing is of course coming down to bare metal inside and out. Sand blasting is gonna happen in about 2 weeks. We will find out just how much cancer is there after that. Im crossing my fingers and hoping that its just the one door skin and a piece of the floor pan that i know about.

    Paint and interior are just a distant thought and im not gonna think about that for a while.

    Thats my rough plan...
    Cheers!

    You don't need to build the rear roll pan. The early 46's that had a toolbox in the back had a beautiful full roll pan under the bumper. Just make sure you make a stone guard for it

    Thats a good thought and ill look into it. Just how easy is it to find that part though? My time is pretty cheap these days and rare parts are spendy. /shrug
