my "financial minister" raises prize winning chrysanthemums, I'm not kidding and no she doesn't make any money at it and this is now starting her show season so the outflow is much greater, but she does help clean up the car at shows

So far, I have not had any issues with cracking on the reproduction.

Randy - This new steering wheel that I posted about is much, much nicer than the old KS one. I would definitely use it on a high end restoration. The NOS ones are just so difficult to find. If you do find one, it will be expensive, and I worry about one of those cracking just like the originals.

       Good to know Brant.
     The complaint I have on the KS is the "dots" . They are not as "crisp' and pointed as the originals and they are certainly not evenly installed or deep enough. It's easy for me to criticize a factory wheel made 50 years ago about cracking. I would CERTAINLY hope a "modern manufacturer" would take the steps with material to keep history from repeating itself. My KS is headed for the swap meet after looking at ti again. I would rather have a cracked original.

Borrowed a VW Crafter van from work (worked for Audi of America ) its similar to a M/B Sprinter van, here it's about 1/3 of the flowers she take to shows, individual flowers displayed in one of 13 classes. All petals are straightened and aligned to make them look perfect by me
Then at the car show she waxes the car, it's a trade off
She missed cleaning the wheel well

here's some other stuff I've collected over the years. i have the original base plate and chrome air cleaners. The chrome is almost completely gone and the base has surface rust What i have for an air cleaner now is a NOS HP filter kit that we had at my old dealer, when we relocated the parts room to a new building we were cleaning out some old stuff. I got this air cleaner kit because it had a "blemish" on the decal. they were going to toss it but i took it. It sat in my attic for probably close to 40+ years. What it had was a real nice NOS air filter, I also have the one i had on my car when I took it off the road (Motorcraft FA-41) and current repo one
from left to right they are New Repo, Filter that came with air cleaner kit, and the Motorcraft FA 41

Steve,

Does the filter on the right have as much purple tint as the photo shows? If so it looks like the original FoMoCo filters...

It's got part number AF-41. Motorcraft I probably got it in the mid 70s used to get a case of 6 filters at time, oil filter, air filter.  It's is dark red bordering on maroon

Very nice Steve. You never know what you have lurking in the attic! Thanks for sharing  Smiley

From my collection of carburetors
One is from a 1967 GT350 that I got when I worked at a gas station in 1969,one is a Holley replacement from the early 70s that I had on the car for almost all its life, and the last one is an original autolite, that's what's on the car today
