  5. The gauge cluster and speedometer look like about 1936 or 1937 Ford. Try posting a close up of the faces on fordbarn and asking. Leave the rest of the dash out of the picture.

    That looks great. I particularly like the smoothed out head. You use a die grinder for that?

    17's front, 18's rear. It's a real freeway flyer. The rear tires are 30" tall.

  18. keep them coming.

    great examples of how awesome wire wheels can look.
     
  19. What are the common and common sizes of this basic style of wire wheels? I like tall and skinny. And what about the inner hub flange and disc brakes? Know what I mean, Vern?

    The caps on the black coupe look like plain versions of the Cragars that So-Cal carries. The "wings" are larger than on Sellers' caps.

    O'Brien Truckers carries a lot of Steve Sellers' products including the Veda and plain spinner caps.

    Hi, I got the center caps from my friend Don Stevens in AZ, he had them with Cragar script or plain.
    I don't know who makes them, sorry!
