Fender braces, period accessory item, for sale

I have at least a half dozen sets of front fender braces. These were sold back in the day because the front fenders tended to droop a little or sometimes a lot. Usually because of loading items on the fenders, posing for pictures on the fenders, tying the big dead bull moose to the fenders, or, ** a...

Good insurance . Pad for belly sling?

Allan, Even though I’m an accessory nut, I probably would not have attached one to everything here, but 10 years ago a cracked arm got by my rebuilder and myself until I was installing in a chassis. A quick weld with a MIG, not the strongest of welds, took care of the Immediate problem and the girdl...

Scott, unless things have changed drastically , we only used 50’ lengths of fire hose. None of us were man enough to carry 100’ in each hand. My point being , So. Pittboig may be sporting 49’ hoses.

Pad for belly sling?

Both conveyor belting and fire hose are great ideas. We lived near a quarry for awhile and I have conveyor belt mats all over the shop areas. When I need a small piece I just bend over and slice what I need. When I left the fire department, I took my big long hose with me, so have that covered, too....

Re: Pad for belly sling?

The ones we make and sell through Lang’s and Snyder’s have a thin piece of neoprene, so any oil that may get on it doesn’t swell it. You want it snug, and that does the trick. ( semi-shameless plug )

It is a neat item, Sam. Display proudly. The earliest use I’m aware of the famous Ford script was the name plate on the 1905 model F ford. It was enlarged a bit to include space for the serial number on the big brother of the T, the 1906 model N,R,S. If anyone has an earlier recollection it would be...

Sam, they got it for you. From my poor memory, I believe 1904 was the first year that FoMoCo put their name on a hubcap, and that was on the 4 cylinder model B. They were assemblers, and not manufacturers so they did buy a catalog item in the basic hubcap and applied this medallion. It was quite a w...

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the longer/taller/wider valance, shown to the right in the very first picture, is late T, 1926-7. The one to the left ( shorter height) wo...

As you can see, the black one is about 3/8” lower at the engine mounting point. It has a large ford script, so later, but car or truck,or..... D42FA821-...
