Okay, I now see two separate Ebay auctions for the van, one as a Ford and the other as a Chevrolet. One says 82k miles, the other has 89k miles. Current bids are at $3050 for the Chevrolet version and $1625 for the Ford version. Wade

As far as installing the trim back on the window, you'll need the rubber strip that goes into the slot on the trim. I tried to find it at a local glass shop, but they didn't have the correct thickness, so I got some from Clark's. I suggest pushing the rubber strip in the slot, then applying some soapy water on the rubber before pushing it back on the window. You can probably bum

I usually just pull on it from the top or bottom, but you may need to place a block of wood against the each and tap the wood with a hammer.

I'd like to find out if anyone has a recommendation for a cordless drill. 3/8" would suit my needs. I have a Dewalt 12 volt, but I'd like to find one that the batteries last longer and possibly has more torque. I see Harbor Freight has a 3/8" 12 volt lithium (#64370) for $65 and a 1/2" 20 volt lithium (#63381) for $85. Does anyone have any thoughts about either of the

Yes, its C763R. I have catalogs back to 2014 and its not listed, so it would be older than 2014. Wade

Does anyone have an old Clark's catalog that list p/n 763R? It's from a tag on a LM rear coil spring, but I'd like to find the application. Is it a stock repro? For coupe or convertible? HD or standard? Thanks. Wade Lanning

I'm looking for an EM front bench seat for a 4-door or wagon with good padding that I can pick up at the Helen Springfest this coming weekend. Upholstery style & condition not important, just need good padding for bottom cushion and backrest. Actually I don't need the seat frame either, but I'll have a truck so I could take a whole seat.

One thing you can do yourself that can possibly save money, but will result in a better paint job is to remove the trim and bumpers. Some shops won't remove them for their lower price paint jobs. Removing the trim around the front windshield and rear window would be the a good idea, but can be made easier with the special tool to release the clips. Everything else is held on with screws a

It believe the '62 convertible and '62 Spyder option were not available until after the '62 model production run started. Neither are listed in the '62 dealer brochure or the dealer showroom book. Does anyone happen to know off hand the answer to the following questions: 1. What year/month was the '62 convertible production started? I understand it was when the wago

I recently installed 195/75-14 Hankook whitewalls on my LM 4-door. Wheels are 14x7 Camaro. I was going to get 205/70-14 Hankook whitewalls, but I could no longer find them. I presume they were discontinued. If your wheels are 7" wide, I'd recommend at least a 195 cross section. Wade Lanning

A Lakewood is on the cover of Hemmings Classic Car magazine for May 2019. It's owned by Don Magas of PA. A large article about the car is inside. The car was in the People's Choice Show at CORSA convention in Pittsburgh. Wade Lanning

Maybe the attached picture will help. The mount on the left is from a '61 with AC. The mount on the right is an NOS non-AC mount. With both laying on the surface that bolts to the rear frame rail, the difference in the bolt location is 9/16". So the AC style moves the bolt 9/16" closer to the frame rail, at least for these two examples. Wade Lanning

Based on a previous tip on this forum, I bought a tube of cornhead grease from a local John Deere store. It was about $4 as I recall. One tube will last me a long time. Wade Lanning

With the help of folks on this forum, I believe I found the house in Jacksonville I was looking for. As 63vert suggested, the house number was probably changed somewhere in the past. My aunt's house was listed as 2297 Lydia St in a 1926 city directory and the picture of the house I have from the 1920's has 2297 on front of the house. Also with the help of the Jackson appraiser website

I tried locating my aunt's house using the Jacksonville Appraisal link but did not find it, so I contacted the Jacksonville Historical Society as Dave suggested above. They had a 1926 directory that listed my their residence. The address they lived at in 1926 was 2297 Lydia Street in Jacksonville. I tried to Google that address, but did not see a residence there, but a large store instead

Thanks Freeman. I'll try that. I do see that database lists the year built, so that will help narrow the search. Regards, Wade

I'm researching information about a house in Jacksonville, FL that was owned by my great-aunt from 1920s - 1930s. I don't have much to go on, just a few pictures taken about 1926 or 1927 of the house and the house number, but I don't know the name of the street. I'm trying to find out the street name and if the house is still there. Since the pictures were taken in 1926 or
