Mentally scanning through my inventory of spare parts I can see nearly everything needed to create my own version of that sample of insanity. With lights!

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

This is why I love this site. Almost everyone runs on the same level of insanity and genius. Just not all at the same time.

We run international trucks and the water valves on them are terrible. We add a ball valve so the a/c cools better.

It's a popular mod for the C3 guys in warmer climates, same AC reason.

I put a ball valve in the heater hose without any other valves, on all of my big trucks and one tractor. You'd be surprized at how much hot antifreeze circulates in the heater with only one hose shut off. On a hot afternoon you want both hoses blocked.
