    A set of new glass taillight lenses with blue dots installed for my 41 which my wife put "someplace safe." I am sure they will turn up 10 seconds after I buy another pair.

    For me, it's a pair of Cragar 15x6x4-1/2 S/S's manufactured around 1966. Aluminum centers with steel rims.

    I'd even settle for a pair/set of Cragar 15x6x4-1/2 G/T's. Aluminum centers with steel rims.

    ...can anyone help?????

    These are getting pretty hard to find especially with history. The Horne was bought new by the late Art Gray. He is the good looking black guy in the first Photo. I'm the ugly white guy. The picture was taken the day I bought it. It was originally on his crate '50 Cad. engined 32 Ford that he ran at Bonn. He also built record setting flatheads in the '50s. I just found out he was awarded a plaque on the last day open for being the person that made the most runs down the Fremont 1/4 mile.
    Getting pretty hard to find a good Ross steering too. Especially chrome. Not sure of it's history but sure it was on an old rod.

    For my 2 cents worth I'd say Fenton headers for small block Chevy and or Nicson dual 2 barrel intake for same. Dad's got a pair of the headers. Anybody have the intake?

    Forgive me for my limited knowledge of rims. What brand of rims are these?

  12. Probably already said, but it is whatever part you desperately need at 10:00 pm on a Saturday night.

  17. A few years ago I came across an Edelbrock finned valve cover for a ford small six. I sure wish I had bought it now, I have not seen another one since!

    the hardest part to get is the one you passed on buying at the last swap, you know the one you'll never need....

    How about a finned MOON timing cover with an integral breather for an Olds 303/324?

    A little bit "late model" but an original Hyperpak manifold for a Slant 6 is a pretty sought after part in some circles.

    Bruce Larson clear sbc valve covers?

  23. Frontenac stuff for the 4 banger...would just love a full house Fronty in a lakes mod...not gona happen with the price of stuff though!!Try Ardun heads....with made in england on them...apparently they were used on garbage trucks in London pre WWII.Speedwell wheels for the Austin 7
  24. All Ardun heads are post-WWII. ;) The valve covers with the cast "Made in England" do seem to be the least common of the various versions, though.

    Pre-'56 Porsche 16" wheels and '56-'57 Continental Mark II hub caps.
