Bill. do you know if your buddy used a top cap insulator on his Aerostar springs.. or one that sits in the spring...and.. do you have a brand?
Jeff it is a top cap style, he got it from O'Rilies (SP?), don't know the brand. His good friend was commercial sales manager at the store a found a bunch of stuff for him over the years. Mike, my buddy, is computer limited and used the store looking up stuff. I will try to find out and post back.
I did some research a while back and found several in the Summit inventory but elected to cut my Ranchero coils. May go with the Aerostar if the ride turns out to be too harsh .
love it. surprising that it took so long to show up!
On my '59, I just took 1 coil out of the stock springs and it sits pretty well. The next time I have it apart, I will take another 1/2 coil out of them. There is another Moog spring I like better.. same as the Aerostar but with a 1 on the end instead of a 0.
I saw this car around 5 years ago at a car show in Langley, B.C.. It was for sale and by the looks like it went to Europe.
1957 Meteor Rideau.
Scoob.... I checked the Eaton Spring website and spoke to a rep there..$189 a pair for 57-59.. and for 40 bucks more they can make the springs 1-2 inches lower or higher....
I think Eaton is the ticket.....I just want fresh springs.Not 60 year old ones.
100%. I’m with ya on that. Thanks!!
Wanted! Olds 394 Hurst motor mount and dual point distributor
I don’t remember the brand but I believe they were for a rear of a Toyota pickup which have the same inner and outer diameter size. I have a 3/8” on one side and a 1/2” on the other of my 56fairlane as I didn’t want it too low with Aerostars. Bought them from Summit after I used the 2 diameters to find them.
Haven't seen any trucks in here but it is a 57 Ford.
vintage picture from 1960 looks like rust may already be started in the rockers
L.O.L, I think 57 Fords came from the Factory with rust growing in them.
Flame red E-code Custom. Beautiful car.
Before, after and after of my son's 58 Custom 300. Met up with a 4 wheel drive Chevy pickup. He was banged up, but OK. Car was down for a few months, but back again. This was my car for a long time.
This is my 58. I had this before the black Custom 300, but gave up on it because of the rust/condition. But, eventually got it done (1999). I bought it in 72.
The 58 Courier Sedan Delivery had 57 tail lights also. On the Ranchero, maybe it was because of the 58 tail lights sticking out,,they would get broken off when opening the tail gate, but the regular 58 wagon tail gate opened down too. The Courier was a 1 piece tail gate and opened up,,,hinged on top.
I used Ford Aerostar springs in my 58 Courier. Right out of the box, no cutting. Lowered the front a couple inches and rides great. This Avatar picture was before the springs swap.
