FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

I recently purchased several NOS 1932 Ford front and rear fenders. One of the left front fenders has a strange hump on the hood shelf (see photo) This hump is not a dent and was obviously part of the original stamping. I looked in the 1932 Rehor restoration guide, and there is no mention of this feature. Can anyone tell me the purpose of this hump? The latch holes in this area are rectangular, but the other set of latch holes are round as one would expect.

Thanks

Sorry to be the bearer of possibly bad news, but the fender in your photo is for a '33-'34 pickup and panel delivery (112" wheelbase). The bulge stamped in it is to provide clearance for the round-headed rivet heads on top of the frame rail for the front cross member (unlike on '32 frames where flat-head countersunk rivets were used for that purpose). The location of the forward hood latch attachment holes is not only slotted, but located outboard compared to the location of those holes on a '32 fender as is the hole further forward for the attachment of the fender to top of the frame rail.

They look close but don't try to make it fit. Sell it to someone that needs it or trade it for what you need. It is more than just removing the hump. If I remember correctly the headlights are in a slightly different location and the contour at the front is slightly different.

Wow! Thanks for the good information and the quick response. I do not need the fender and will sell it as a '33 '34 Pickup fender. Hopefully, someone can benefit from it.

I also have a NOS pickup rear fender. I believe it is a '32. Is there a way I positively identify it?

Thanks for your help - I really appreciate it!

The difference between '32 and '33-'34 pickup rear fenders is much more subtle. If you could post a photo of the bottom front of the fender where it attaches to the running board and frame side rail, likely what you have can be identified.

Here is a photo of what I think is a '32 pickup fender.

Thanks again

Your thinking is correct, it is a '32 pickup rear fender. The telltale difference between '32 and '33-'34 pickup rear fenders is the equal spacing of the holes for the attachment to the running board on a '32 fender plus the more subtle difference in the size of the adjacent added section that abuts the frame rail. The photos below are of a NOS left side fender from the Club's "1932 Ford Book....".

I just noticed that the '33'34 pickup fender has what appears to be part of the flange cut away. Should the fender have this cut away?

Thanks again.
