Duct/Electrical tape does indeed fix all.



Even when it's a temporary fix. Did the right side up to match.

It was coming loose anyways. Truth be told, bike weight doesn't really bother me.

You should have known it was a '37. Very nice rod , Smashy. Now I have to know: coupe or sedan?

That's a quarter-window (five-window coupe or 2-door sedan). '37 pickup did not have passenger car sheet metal - - nose was entirely different (more like a cross between the 37 pass. and the '36 PU). Pickups '33 - 38 had different noses from the passenger cars. Model As and Bs (32) shared, as did 39s and 40s.

Good call on seeing the window though. Now, if it's a 2-door sedan, is it a Vicky or humpback?

Doug's first car was an 1862 Prairie schooner, he traded it for the longer wheelbase Saratoga wagon in 1874.
The 1930's Fords are late models for him.

I was a street rod nut from the time I was 4 or 5 years old (although that term had not been invented yet - - they were all just 'hot rods.'). I knew my early Fords almost before I could ride a bike.

And Smashy: tell me that's a SBF in that. Please.

It looks like the distributor is in the back. What does that tell you?

I think it's 'glass, too. Probably a nice cruiser.

Distributor wouldn't sit that high in relation to the air cleaner top - - I believe that's the coil mounted on the firewall - - looks like an MSD. Though judging by the distance from the center of the manifold to the radiator core you're probably right anyway that it's a SBC - - unless it has one of the real stubby water pumps.
