Re: Tapered Axle Rear Brake Conversion

Hi Matthew, Did you replace the axle and diff as well? Or is this job just dealing with the hub? Mike, the approach described in this article keeps the original axle and differential. It separates the hub from the drum, so that the drum can be replaced with '65 or later drums that mount to the '59 ...

Re: Tapered Axle Rear Brake Conversion

Ok, don’t order these drums! The part number is for 10 inch drums. Need to find a part number for the 11 inch drums Matthew, did you ever find the correct part number for the 11 inch replacement drums? Art went to NAPA, and discovered what you already knew - the P/N given in the article, is for 10 ...

Re: Department Of The Interior

The upholstery is complete, and in the car! There's one minor upholstery alignment problem, but really too minor to make an issue of; only eagle-eyed Matthew will be able to spot it. I'm very pleased, and now just waiting on the SMS door panels. And waiting. And waiting. And... I've enough copper vi...

Tragedy Strikes!

I don't know all the details, but Graham had a car fire, as documented in the attached YouTube video. I've asked him what he needs in the way of parts - perhaps we can help. So sorry to see something like this happen...

Bernie Brouillet - Athol, MA, USA (work in progress)

9.jpg I've lived on one small New England town all my life, and so has my 1959 Sport Fury convertible. I bought it in March, 1967 as my first car, from the original selling dealership, E. T. Fredette Inc. as the third owner. It was originally white, but the first owner, Miles Struthers, had it repa...

Re: Bumpers, front bumperettes and Sport Fury steering wheel

Joe, for the bumpers and guards, you might give Bumper Boyz a try. If you can tolerate something a little beat up, and have a local rechromer, John Fowlie ( Big M Auto ) is your best bet. You already know, I'm sure, that you're going to have to find a steering wheel in restorable condition. John mig...

Proven Force - Driveline Specialties, Maple Grove, MN

Some time ago, I took a call from Plymouth Owners Club members who got my phone number from the inside jacket. Mark and Monica were looking for some advice regarding transmission repair near them, and in response to my inquiry someone on Facebook made a recommendation for Metro Matic just north of S...

Department Of The Interior

When I had Faulkner repainted in the original copper color, the red interior had to go - so I painted it. Folks who have ridden in it know that painting red vinyl black comes out pretty well, but the fabric came out like sandpaper. Best not to wear shorts when sitting in it! :o I made the ill-fated ...
