Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

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.

Does anyone have any details on original inside rear view? What does the mount look like, how is it mounted, etc?

First thing you should check to see is if there are 'dimples' in the center of the metal panel above the windshield. If you can find them, then there was a interior rear view mirror. If not, then there was not one originally used on your pickup.
Ford used these dimples to assist the assembly line and dealers with adding such items as rear view mirrors and sun visors, as those dimples were where the holes were drilled to install the items.

Thanks for the reply Nels.
I have 2 of these trucks. Made 1 good one from those. Both had inside mirrors, not necessarily original. The mounting of each mirror not the same., one has a 'pad' with 2 holes on each side, the other has a threaded shaft out back. Neither were mounting correctly. No dimples in that area, however there are dimples for the visors, (never had visors). No place to screw in the mirror with shaft, and the other with "bat wings" with 2 screw holes doesn't really fit either. Long story, sorry about that. Really would like it to be as close to original as possible. Do you know where I might find photos?

I tried to find a picture in the book Ford Trucks Since 1905 by Wagner there was no picture of any mirror from the photos in the book.

Those photos that showed a clean view through the windshield did not show a mirror.

Yeh, same here, green book lists a part no. Have numerous ford catalogs and books, and only pic so far showing a mirror is in a woody wagon.

Thank you Ragtop Man. One of mirrors from our 2 trucks matched what you showed, but c to c screw holes not wide enough to catch the windshield trim, so welded on some sheet metal to make mirror mt wide enough, grinding and shaping etc, and it works perfectly. So how it mounted originally, don't really know, but this is perfect. Thanks again.
