About this title


From Introduction: "Today, fifty years after the introduction of the Ford V-8, some are still in use. Most, however, are in the hands of collectors who seek to restore these cars to their original condition. Unfortunately, some go too far and over-restore, while others fail to go far enough and under-restore. This book will help those who wish to have their V-8 just as Henry Ford built it. Complete and accurate information about the Ford V-8, as it was produced at the assembly plants, has been difficult to obtain up to now....This book now brings together in one authoritative source all the production details, including numerous original photographs from the company's historical file. It is the result of eight years of research into primary material such as original specifications, engineering drawings and releases, manufacturing directives, and historical records at Ford Motor Company and the Ford Archives. Because of the scope and complexity of these documents, they can only be interpreted by those who have a thorough knowledge of the Company's internal system for engineering and releasing of documents for production. In this the authors are well qualified....Some of the information included here has been published in short articles in antique car club publications and has already been accepted as a guide by qualified field judges. Nevertheless, this book is a new manual for restoring all passenger cars and commercial vehicles with the passenger car chassis, 1932-1938. It is a what-to-do, not a how-to-do book. It is a guide for the correct and authentic way to utilize your own restoration skills, or to help you supervise the hired restorer...."
