Does anyone know if a windshield ? visor is available for a '55?
Were they a factory option? I am considering one for my panel.
I am referring to the outside optional sun visors which run across the
top of the windshield.

Subject: Re: Trailer Wanted
A few suggestions on an enclosed trailer. I currently have a 24' enclosed (you
can read about trailer tips on my home page at
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://fly.hiwaay.net/~crhill/trailer.html) and owned a 20' before this. A
couple of things to consider on putting a 50's Ford in. 1) check height -
measure your truck and ensure it will clear the standard trailer door and
ceiling height otherwise may have to opt for extra height trailer 2) get a road
side escape door - getting out of a truck without an escapte door is next to
impossible 3) AXLES - the standard trailer has T2 axles which are rated at
3500# each for a total of 7000#. With the weight of your truck and other
things you carry, you could easily surpass that amount. Get T3 axles rated at
5200# each, this should handle about anything you want to carry. If you buy
used, make sure you get the large axles, check the trailer plate - don't trust
Again, check my homepage, I have put a few thoughts together on this subject
Also, check with Trailer World in Bowling Green, KY and see if theu can help
you in anyway.
