I'll buy a couple of sets of the panel rubberisms when and if available.

I have the capability to vulcanize natural rubber (very bouncy and durable) in my shop, and the molds shouldn't be too difficult to make once I have a sample. The only downside is the rubber I use only comes in a natural tan color.

I don't know if they are different, but I believe that I have the rubber stoppers on the 51 Panel. Would be nice to get them reproduced if they're different.

Sorry if it's not too clear, the rubber blocks are 1 inch square by 1 1/4 high the angle cut on the low side is 3/4 " from bottom and the grooves on the sides 1/16's deep. I'll send the rubbers to you AX as soon as you PM me your mailing address. I think these could be made fairly easily being cut out of hard rubber. I hope this is of some help.

Hey Guys, If these are those strange shaped little blocks of rubber that fit in the top "limit" hinges on panel truck doors try Sacramento Vintage Ford. They list some for 48-52. I could not find anything for my 55 panel and figured I'd try them for a few bucks. They fit perfect. Hope this helps

Does the shape match 56 panelford's drawing?

PS: My assemblies are chromed, anyone else's chromed?

The assemblies on both of our Panel trucks are painted body color. I've never seen or heard of them being chrome originally.

Originally these arms were a "bare finish" or "clad plated".

Both sets I have are plated, very old finish but looks like zinc. The '48 pane in the latest issue of Vintage Truck had chrome plated ones. I doubt very much they came from the factory chromed, remember, these were work trucks and Ford did it the cheapest way possible. I would assume they were cheaply plated, not painted because it would take extra time to sort out the different colors for each truck coming down the line. If they were all finished the same way they would just deliver a crate of them to the line and the guys on the line would just grap one and bolt it on without having to think about it.

Here is a picture that should show better than my drawing. I also looked in an old addition of Sacramento Vintage catalog and those bumpers are a different shape, they are cut off flat where the low part of the angle starts.

I have a 54. Thought it was a 56 when bought it but who cares. Paid 1500.00 for it and am going to start the build with tax returns (yeah for instant cash)

Hope everyone had a safe and happy NEW YEARS !

I have a 56 panel that was stretched by Siebert Co. and used as an ambulance. I've had it since 1983. I drove it for a few years and took the motor out and started taking it apart. It's been sitting in the back of my shop ever since. I just got a 429 motor and am planning on getting it back on the road soon.

Carnut22,

My '50 was a Siebert ambulance. Can you get some pictures in your album?
