FOUND!! FC engine door arms
Posted by: 63vert ()
Date: September 04, 2019 10:01PM

As title states, I’m looking for arms for both left and right side of a 62 FC engine access door. I believe 61-63 are the same. These are the steel arms, not chain. Any hardware provided to install would be a bonus
I’ve had two different people say that they'd mail them to me, but after waiting six months......

Reading this post got me thinking. My 1963, 95 Van has chains on the rear engine door. What year has arms on the door. Or are we talking about the top engine cover? My top engine cover has no arms either. Just wondering.

Shoutout to antkoto

When buying a fifty year old part, I was expecting greasy, dirty, possibly slightly bent parts.

THESE THINGS ARE AWESOME! Cleaned, blasted, shiny and straight! Thank you.

61/62 and part of 63 has arms, I believe, then the rest of 63-65 has chains.

The 64 and 65 FC's have a fiberglass service door with offset - Frenched in license plate position.. I believe the rubber coated chains were used only on the fiberglass service door's.
Talk about an engineering upgrade!grinning smiley

Chains began in 1963, as shown in the '63 assembly manual.

Ah Ha... learned suthin. Thanks Steve. I have only seen them on fiberglass service doors. So the "lets go cheap" chains started in 63!smileys with beer

Dave,
Actually it was a mid-62 change; so even some late '62 FCs had the chains (Thanks to TP for correcting this).
