Subject: FTE Pre61 - True Love

I just HAD to share this clip out of yesterday's paper with all of you.

Car is man's true love.
Many men have had love affairs with their cars (or trucks). Buster
Mitchell of Knoxville, Tenn., wanted to make it official.
Jilted by his girlfriend, Mitchell decided he wanted to marry his true
love -- his 1996 Mustang GT.
Mitchell, 28, didn't get very far before the clerk dashed his dreams.
Only men and women can marry under Tennessee law, officials said.
It was some time after he listed his fiancee's birthplace as Detroit, her
father as Henry Ford and her blood type as 10-W-40 that his plans sputtered.
"Well, in California they are doing same-sex marriages," he said. "Why
can't we do the good ol' boy thing and marry our cars and trucks?"

End of article.

Hmmmmm. I wonder if there's a tax deduction in there somewhere?

Abe and others,

Unsolved Mystery.
Searched in, out, under and beyond but still I'm not sure about the
original color code T.
I've checked under the dash and other places, even removed some parts that
normally sit there until they rust off, to find out if my color (a brownish
gold metallic) is the original one.
I found out that under this color there is only a grey (zinc?) primer. Maybe
they sandblasted the whole thing when they did the make-over....
It's a 56 custom cab with big-back-window and they've changed it to IFS and
front-flip.
I'm not planning to change it back to it's original color; just curious
about that T code.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tilt Column

I need to find a 30" tilt column for my 56 project. Does anyone know what
would be a good Donor vehicle? I currently have a tilt column out of a 80
Montecarlo, but it is 32" long.

Something else, I bought a mallory fuel gauge for my 56 but when I installed
it, it didn't work. I am sure the wires are wired correctly. I bought it
new from a Super Speed Shop, but they closed and now I don't know where to buy
a new fuel sender that will work with the gauge. I will appreciate any
suggestions that will help me make this gauge work.

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Try the Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. For $35.00 they will do a search on
your VIN.

Good Luck

Not sure how long the actual column is, but I used one out of a GM Van, there is
no ignition on the column. Either contact Mallory about the sender, or if the
paperwork with the gauge tells you the OHM range from full to empty, Sacramento
Vintage Catalog has several different senders that work with different OHM's
ratings.

Good Luck

Howard, have you done this? When I checked with Ford, they said they didn't
have info on the 50s trucks. If its $35 for info that's in the Red Book, of
course that wouldn't be worth it, but if they can give production code info,
or weird color codes, that would be great.

Miguel and others,
I most strongly DISAGREE. What you say is true and would be desireable,
but if this list is available to any of the members on the list it will
certainly end up in the hands of commercial list sellers and I get enough
spam without inviting more. Please rethink this.
Regards,
Roger Meier

I agree with Roger: the list already lets you contact all the other list
members and exchange information.
