On the original they were neither body color or polished. They were painted
a "cream" which actually was a light creamy yellow....not sure what the color
"name" is/was.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts web site updates:

Pictorial sections updated:
1. Pre-48
2. 48-52
3. 53-56
4. 97 and newer
5. small trucks
6. Rancheros

Link sections updated:
1. Antique cars
2. Ford trucks - Econolines
3. Performance trucks
4. Offroad trucks

As some of you may know, FTE takes active steps to
combat spam (Junk email). We have the following
measures:

1. for ford-trucks.com email addresses, POP3 login
is required before sending email through our
system.
2. we continually update a database of known spammers
and reject mail from them (13,000 known sources
right now)
3. Where possible, we mangle email addresses on the
web site.

We're pleased to announce that we now have a tool
on the web site (invisible to users) which activates
when an email address harvester hits our site to
try to get email addresses from the web pages. This
tool spits out tens of thousands of bogus email
addresses to the harvester, polluting their database
so badly that it is, in effect, rendered useless.

Also, if you haven't checked out the site in a while,
there is a page which links up to the US TSB/recall
database. You can get TSB and recall information for
Ford trucks and vans all the way back to 1966.

Subject: FTE Pre48 - ADMIN: New FTE caps

Fellow FTE members. Over the past year, I've had MANY
requests from members for Ford Truck Enthusiasts to
produce a baseball cap. We finally bit the bullet and
created one.

The cap is two-tone denim, blue jean colored bill with
khaki colored cap. It has "Ford Truck Enthusiasts"
embroidered on the front and the web address. We decided
that a high quality cap for a couple bucks more that
lasts a long time was better than a cheap cap that
wears out. This cap has an adjustable leather strap
instead of plastic and is made of pre-washed denim.
You'll find a picture of it on the web site plus a
link to purchase it. The picture is lousy since all
I have is a cheapo $70 computer cam but we put a closeup
of the logo and denim on the linked page with the
flatbed scanner so you can a close-up of the logo.

This is a limited item and they are for sale for
$11.75. As many of you know, Ford Truck Enthusiasts
funds its free web site and list services through the
sale of the items listed on our online store. As
always, you are NOT obligated to make a purchase.

Additionally, FTE is working on incentives for Association
Of Ford Truck Enthusiasts club members. Nothing is
carved in stone yet, but we're planning to offer a
discount to club members on ALL decals sold on the
web site. Additionally, we're working with a vendor
to provide a discount for first purchases made by
Association Of Ford Truck Enthusiasts club members.

Now back to our regular program.

I have checked all my catalogs and cannot find an air filter listed. I suspect
that since the original was oil bath, that over the years they got replaced with
hot rod style cleaners with a paper element and there's no call for the oil bath
type any more. Wish I could be of help.
