And yes, marine is the bonus. Again, for low "hood" lines.

Your Floor Joe
Thanks, Brian.
That was a great question.

Next Question:

What was the last American market Ford car that was factory equipped with a carburetor?

Lee Chadwick of Pottstown, Pennsylvania 1908?

I found that at Wikipedia. The first to win INDY 500 was a Dusenburg in 1924.

I believe it is a '34 Ford, because it has that unusual lump under the back window, just like this '34 Model BB cab that is sitting in the 'things to do' pile in the corner of my shop.

Darn, I thought that would stump you guys. The difference between a 33 and a 34 is that hump. Why is it there? I refuse to give up the floor until someone answers why it is there. Just kidding, it's your floor Joe, but why is it there?

Its there as an engineering foresight for those blingy blinky neon tube things.


My guess would be that it is for clearance of some type of something in the cab.

Yep Shane, they put a strip of wood there to reinforce the cab where the seat hits it.

Yeah, that's all it appears to be.

Maybe it's there to keep you from breaking the back window if you are standing on the mechanical brakes so hard that the cab back panel flexes...

Next question:

I don't have time to dig up a tough question, so here's an easy one.....

Identify the following car - year, make, and model.

By the way it's a 39 Standard and not a 38 Deluxe because the stainless steel moulding is below the body line.

One thing a lot of people don't know about those cars. the cowl is different, it isn't just the front fenders and hood.
