The ones I got from Sacramento Vintage Ford look alot like the picture from 56panel truck put up except there is no slant. Mine came Sac. Fords 2002 catalog pg.305 item #8460 the pair was $2.50 . Like I said they fit perfect, I'm not sure if they still have them. My hindges are chrome probably considered Clad plated.

Never seen or even heard of a Siebert Panel after 1952. You have to post pictures or set up a Gallery!!!!

Thumbs up How many panel owners are there

Hi,
I thought I would chime in. I have a 1949 Panel. I bought it a couple years ago. It is currently behind my father in laws house under a semi - trailer tarp.
I have not done anything with it other than getting a pair of seats from a guy in Oregon. I hope to get it running again this summer, it has a running flatty but no brakes.
Jeff

I haven't been to the board much lately but you can count me in, I have a 50 panel. It came off of a rock pile from Center, N.Dak. It isn't anything to look at now but it will see progress this next summer. I have taken the donor vehicle apart and this summer will start the transformation.

add me to the list!

Santa dropped off the sweetest sleigh a couple weeks back. Looks like I'll be banging my head against a 56 panel project for the next little while, but theres no way I can complain about that!!

I found a couple of old pics of my panel (we call it "the meatwagon") when it was still rolling. I'll set up a gallery & post them.

Ok, now that the panel owners are chatting. I have a 1955 panel, what I'm wondering is what are the oblong holes for on the inside edge of the rear doors? There is one below the top riveted hinge holder and one above the lower holder on each side of each door. I see the hole to route a wire for license plate light on drivers side door, by the way was that suppose to be in some sort of flex loom section?

Thanks

I don't think those holes serve any current purpose, they may have been there as part of the manufacturing process for access/jigging or possibly as a handling point on the assembly line?
The rubber grommets in the holes for the license lite wire on mine that appear to be original just fit the wire, have no provisions for a loom, the wire just folds in half when the door closes.
