Technical / Authenticity / Re: 1962 Front End

I should note that for some time I had previous notable bounce on the drivers side. Rebalancing the old set of tires never seemed to completely eliminate it. Could it be the front shocks?

Even though you have had the balance done, it sounds like a wheel out of balance to me.

A wheel out of round should have been detected as the wheel was being spun on the ballancer, as should be a tyre out of round.

Technical / Authenticity / 1962 Front End
« Last post by StevenTuck on Today at 04:13:29 AM »
I recently had new tires installed and hub balanced. I also had new brakes, wheel cylinders and brake drums (original drums) installed. Now it seems between 40 and 45 there is a rather noticeable bouncing in the left front (drivers side). During the original restoration I had the complete front end suspension done. Could it be the wheels out of round or bent or something else? Any ideas of what could be causing this? Thanks for your help.

I agree. Don't get it repainted.

Jack,
 Hi. The clip doesn't really do anything. I had a running motor with a few missing. I think Feltz at Terrill Machine sold me a few since I rebuilt the engine anyway.

On second look I stand corrected and believe '52 is the correct year.......Gold medallions under headlights may just be missing. The other identifying features shown appear to fit '52. The gray tweed fabric on the door and kick panel and the gold painted insert on the dash indicate it may have seen some shade tree "restortion"

Haha, its a tricky one.  The grill extensions are definitely 50, the dash cluster, front bumper, steering wheel and rear tail lights are 51-52. If the rear bumper has the exhaust ports, it would be a 52, no ports 51.

The red car Barry has pictured is not a '50 according to the front bumper guards (Dagmars on the '52) and the headlight rings --- assuming everything we are looking at is stock configuration.  Sticking with '52.   ;D

Gentlemen,

It's a 1950 according to the unadorned grille extensions under the headlights.
