If you were to limit me to only one specialty car, it would be this: a 59' Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina Series I Cabriolet. A true gentlemans car in my opinion. It stopped me dead in my tracks.

Hello Dan,

When I first started working on CSX2079 the first thing I looked for was a foot box vin tag. I asked Tom if there was a tag. He told me in the 40+ years of owning 2079 he hadn't seen one. He said the number was on the latch and also on the front of the frame somewhere. I found the one on the latch.

I just made Tom aware of the ad for CSX2081 and told him to look at the photos for reference as 2079 is obviously 2 cars before. CSX2079 was originally a red car as well.

Regards,

I'm surprised you eagle eyed  guys didn't catch them last year when I posted a photo for a different topic.

Once you paint them black they disappear.

I have two (2) each of Bud Moore spacers (copies) in both 1/4" and 3/8" I'll be selling when I return to my NY home second week next month. Along with a number of other "spring cleaning" items.
I'm keeping a set for myself and selling the second set (both thicknesses).

Cheers,

ps the pic is one of the sets on my car.

Here is my W-MO 2-66 Group I/II R Model radiator. This differs from the 65 Galaxie radiator in that it is 1 1/2" shorter in height. It also has the R Model oil cooler mounted.
Earl,
How thick a fan spacer did you have to use to clear the oil cooler?  Was it a custom-made or aFoMoCo piece you found that worked?  How long have you driven this configuration?

Tom,

It was not custom, it was a FoMoCo piece 3/4" thick. I couldn't tell you the original application, all what was important to me was the thickness. I've driven it in this configuration for tha past 8 years. What was custom is the thermostat housing in the upper hose. It needed to clear the HiPo fan which was routed in a funny way. I was determined to get everything working properly with the Webers.

Cheers,

The Lounge / Re: 5S089 for sale details... I don't get it

So the advertising is accurate? This car was always box stock original?

Nope, I have printed photos of 5S089 I took when it was in R model trim at sear point circa 2002ish. I'll have to dig them up.

The Lounge / 5S089 for sale details... I don't get it
« on: January 29, 2019, 08:56:36 PM »
This one annoys me. 5S089 is listed for sale. It states that it was restored by Tony C. It also shows the stock dash with 29283k miles on it and also states it has original "Black License Plates". Original un-modified car.

First off this was Rod Creiger's car. (long time NorCal Member / supporter) who passed away (RIP). Rod had built it up into R Model configuration and open tracked it with NorCal. It was in an R Model configuration for almost 2 decades if not more, with an R Model dash. It also wore personalized California white plates "5S089" for such a long time. This was also a highly modified car when Rod bought it. It once upon a time had a straight front axel and set up for a big block.

So Really???

When I made the tabs , I used only single bolts on the tab to radiator support. I didn't want the extra set of holes and I also didn't trim the radiator support in front of the radiator in the event I choose to return the stock radiator.

Here you go. I also posted this on the 5R098 Essex Wire car post. Hope this helps you.

The same can be said about the front and rear suspension. This is a race car. I did notice the welded in reinforcement plate above the rear top shock absorber and heim joints on the links.

This is not a concourse car. This is currently (at the time of the photo) a race car. So the pieces you see...

Someone on the forum asked recently requesting the seeing mounting tabs for the R model radiator. There you are.

The second image is the passenger side inner fender. I thought that was interesting if you know what I'm talking about.
