The lug nuts by them selves would fit most any car or truck all those years. Nope, these parts fit ONLY Ford up to 1948.

What part of a Ford pickup up into the 1990's interchanged with a 1932 Ford passenger car but didn't fit any other American car or truck?

There are more than one of these parts on the truck, it will ONLY bolt onto these trucks up until 95 or so and pre-1948 Fords including that 1932 I mentioned.

You got it BB, it's your floor.

Dang it (headslap), I was thinking wheels too...but I had it in my head that 5x5.5" would fit some Dodge, Jeep and and International trucks as well. But maybe the Ford's pilot hole was too small to work on another make...IDK.

Good question...

I have NO excuse for not getting that! It was the '32 Ford that got me off track....

My (otherwise stock at the time) '28 Model A had wheels from a '55 F100 on it when I first found it

Me too. I misunderstood the question. I have Mid 70's ford pick up wheels on the front of my roadster with '56 f100 brakes. I read the question to mean what part did Ford use all those years that remained the same. My bad.

Not on Eagles, just the CJs. All the full size Jeep trucks (pickups and big Wagoneer/Cherokee) used 6 lugs. Eagles were the same as all AMC passenger cars, 5 x 4.5" (Ford/Chrysler/AMC pattern -- only the center hole is a bit bigger on AMC/Chrysler than Ford).

Yeah but you might not be able to turn them due to interferance with later disc brake calipers!.Ford rims were interchangeable with Dodge rims but Dodge rims were not interchangeable with Ford . The center hole sizes are different. Or maybe it was the other way around.
Now for the question!
What automobile company had ties with the Mayflower ship and how?

I have an A.M.C. Jeep eagle sport coupe 1982 its in my yard, and had to buy 5 1/2 x 5 rims for it! I thought the same as you and bought 5 x 4 1/2 but learned the hard way ! Its a 5 speed stick 4 wheel drive maybe that makes a difference?
