Come on guys, ya'll just aint thinking. It was first used on cars for a purpose but for the most part now it is just used for aesthetics.

A "bezel"? It is a way to mount a stone as well as a trim around a component like a head or tail lamp.

Hey Brian, you are correct! Read back through the post. In one of them I said that you would probably get the answer. But yeah they used to hold the lenses of head lights and tailights and they were even used to hold gauges in place the same way that a gem stone is held in place as with jewelry. Now a days if a tail light or head light has one it is for looks.

Brian you have the floor! And I can go back to sleep!

Ok, this is a Ford Coupe made in the mid thirties. Most think the bodies in 35 and 36 are the same, but they aren't, what is different?

Your picture is of a 35, the grill and hood are much different. The pics I posted are of my 36 hood and grill. Ohhh, I also have a book by the Ford Club, shows all the differences between 35-36.

Brian I beg to differ on the body they are the same, now the 36 did have some things different. the hood, and grille as you say are, also the running boards and trim, fenders are not the same, then you have is it was a standard or deluxe, the 36 deluxe had a chrome windshield frame, a passenger side tail light, had a dash with a chrome waterfall, and a banjo steering wheel.

Now I could be wrong as you don't show any of that, but from what I read and have seen, and worked on, that would be the difference, I think.

As far as I know there IS a difference. And this one has a 36 body. There is something you can see in this photo that tells me it's a 36 body.

I guess I will have to wait for your answer, as there is nothing that is different that is shown. It is a model 48 built in 1935 and 1936, according to what I have read all the changes made to the 36 are not on this car in the picture. It has wire wheels 35 only, the fenders are gone, but were not the same as 36, same as the running boards. every change That was listed was bolt on stuff, it said the bodies were the same. I will wait, maybe even learn something.

Bob


Unless it's the firewall or the sides which you wouldn't see with the hood and sides on.

The firewall is different. The 36 that you show has the X pattern on the side of the firewall, the 35 had windlace that went down the side of the firewall, the 36 had rubber snubbers. Other than that, both year firewalls are the same. The "X" pattern was used to stiffen the side of the firewall for 36.
