    The truck runs well. I changed the oil, flushed the gas tank and lines, put in new plugs, and an Optima battery. The truck started up on the first turn after i poured some gas in the carb. The truck was last licensed in 1981. It has been in my wife's family since being bought new in 1950 by her father. I have the original bill of sale which i will post. My father in law worked for Mobil Oil, Socony, in Rifle, Colorado. He drove this truck carrying supplies and pipe fittings up into the mountains. They worked in line camps, on the oil and gas wells during the week. My wife's brother (94) passed and the heirs offered me the truck. It has 88,000 miles. A sticker on the pillar indicates that in 1965 the oil was changed with 85000 miles. So it has not been driven much since then. It has always been garaged. I am replacing the brakes on the front. I am very anxious to get it on the road. I used to ride in it up in the mountains with my father in law, 53 years ago. It was slow going, but couldn't be in a hurry on those roads. I was really happy to find this forum, i will be asking questions. took me forever to figure out how to post pictures.

    Don't know if this will help you or not, but it looks pretty similar to my stock '47 P15 installation. Bit of a challenge to get in there to take a picture. Boy, is it dirty under there!

    ...and just how is asking for information that is 'apparently' on hand causing more work? Claiming to have documents but declining to offer them when asked only says that they do not really exist. I DID NOT question the possibility or ask for the details for any reason other than to expand my knowledge base. As for 'taking this to a PM', that works fine if I wanted to also hoard the supposed info but having a list on this forum helps EVERYONE reading, both now and in any future search. The two of you are the ones who often seem to be at the root of conflict, not me.

    More progress to report, and the top installation is wrapping up today. Took these pictures last week. Here the rear panel is tacked in place and the top pads are shown below. New Top pads needed to be made as the ones from Hirsch did not fit correctly in width and length. The pads prevent the Hartz cloth from wearing prematurely. I was able to assist with the next step which was to lay the top over the car and start to stretch and tack it in place. The following day it was brought out in the sun to warm. The guys then removed the temporary staples and started to stretch and re-tack it into its final position. Over the weekend the windlace was put onto cover all of the staple lines and the snaps were installed in the top to mirror the locations that were factory installed on the body. New rubber window seals from Steele arrived and were covered with the appropriate self adhesive black fabric also supplied by Steele. I should have the car back in my possession in the next day or so.

    My Dad Owned and Operated a Mobil Station at the corner of 23rd and Forest Ave. near DRAKE University, where he graduated in 1938. I put up Four of the "Flying Red Horse Flags" (Black and White Checkered) when I was 15, they were gone the next morning, haven't seen a real one since. Charlie Stephenson

    Dual horns

    It is a rare option and they sound nice...much better than the single horn. At least i think so

    Thanks a bunch for the input. It helped a ton. I ended up using duplicolor aluminum cast coat engine paint (rattle can). It looks great. Not too bright.

    Dual horns

    I thought hooters always came in pairs....... hooter is the English term for horn by the way.... other than the bracket, they look like horns off a 41 Plymouth

    Looking for a good oil

    I removed the oil pan to clean and found the steering arm was in the way off removal.I turned the wheels and I was able to get it out. I thought I would have to take it all apart. Just a FYI moment.

    Spring under axle rear b2b

    I am constantly baffled by all the talk of lowering these trucks. Not sure why there is so much interest and effort put into this process? I have about 10,000 miles on my B-3-C now and am extremely happy with it's ride qualities. I just can't imagine messing about with the standard set up. It is easily the nicest riding and handling solid front axle vintage truck in these parts. IMO the factory got it right from the beginning. And no.....I don't think they look any better lowered. Jeff

    Cowl vent linkage

    These pics are of my p-15's linkage but probably similar enough to yours to help. Hope so. they are taken with the vent open. Olds fiesta hubcaps on your ride? Nice!
