    3 window coupe was body type 68-720 (68 designates 1936). The Phaeton was 68-750; Cabriolet was 68-760; 5w coupe was 68-770; Tudor sedan was 68-700; Fordor sedan was 68-730; Roadster was 68-710

    No idea what a "67" was. 1935 models were "48-" and 1937's were "78"
  2. Thank you TagMan !

    Order some new tires today with tubes... Hmm need to paint the rims... Going to be black for sure... But I want to replicate the striping that was on the rims. One broad strip with thin stripe on either side...may need to see about having them striped again

    Dang, Rob you come up with all the cool stuff. That car looks real familiar. Was it ever at the Run to Roslyn in the 80's. I had a friend about that much older than me that I would see at Roslyn and another event or two a year who had one then.

    Fat Fender'd Ford. Black on Blackwalls with Lyon caps. Seems familiar.

    I'm still jealous...
  17. Same car? If so great score. I love me some '35-'36 3-Windows!

  19. Didn't get the five spokes with the car. The seal conversions was removed and stock reflectors and glass lenses put back in... I kind of liked the seal beam conversion.. may look into going back to that.. But for now I'll leave it...
  20. Whitewalls would really compliment those caps!
  21. To late Chris, It's all your fault wide whites are for roadsters...ha ha ha..

  22. 36maggedout.jpg So I borrowed this picture from Rocket's Hot Rod Garage prior post.. This picture shows my 36(5 spokes at the time) with the seal beam conversion on the car.. It now has been converted back to reflector and glass lenses.. On the fence if I want to go with the seal beam conversion again or not. maybe just leave it... Not sure how hard it is to find the conversion parts.. What do you all think ?

    If you drive a lot at night, it'd probably a good idea to install sealed beams. If your driving is mostly to a cruise night, leave it be. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.....

  24. had it out the other night after having the tires done... and may need to go back to a sealed beam for better will a 7" seal beam bolt right in ? or will it need a conversion kit ? Thank you
  25. I assume you are 12 volts (correct me if I am wrong). I would go with the "Brite" bulbs from Ron Francis Wire Works,, (800) 292-1940. Search the site for "Brite". They should go right into your original sockets. If your reflectors need to be replated do it but don't go for aftermarket reflectors as I have heard of many of them having problems. If you try to run sealed beams behind the lens the lens will defocus the light making them useless. Without the lens the sealed beams will look funny. I think the hub caps you show in post #65 are overpowering and I don't think they look good one the car (maybe that is just me).

  26. I will check on the bulbs for sure..The car had already been converted back to original the reflectors are most likely reproduction..will need to look and see..thanks for the tip.. I dig the caps , not flashy just simple clean with the black walls..

  27. What the heck, try the reflectors, there is nothing to lose. If the headlight don't seem to be focused check there first.

    I like those 40 bumpers on there, I have a pair to install on mine but this is the first example I’ve seen. Nice car!
  30. Thank you, they tucked them in closer on the 36 when it was built..I like this kustom touch for sure.
