Does anyone have the story on the 1950 Ford at Homecoming? It was parked up on the lawn at the end in front of the museum. Thanks.

Wes, the 1950 belongs to Harry Daw from Troy, MO. It was originally his father's car.

If you want to contact him, I can message you his contact info.

Wes, the 1950 was my grandfather's. My dad and a Doctor in Iowa did the restoration. It was in pretty good condition when they started. Took it to the garage today. It had no brakes when we went to unload it at the museum. I live in Troy, Mo. My grandfather lived between Wayland and Kahoka, Mp. The reason for bringing it was to show the progression from the quad that my dad built replica of Henry's 1896 quad and the 1950 when Ford made major styling changes.

That's why I like mechanical brakes! Them new-fangled hydraulic brakes will never catch on!!

Finding it hard to get some of the brake parts needed. Macs show all needed parts in their catalog like a new master cylinder. Have not ordered from them before and am a little concerned after seeing a negative post on here about them. Hope I get good service from them.

Dennis Carpenter or maybe NAPA would be a good place to look for your parts.

Harry, Before you buy from Macs, check out Dennis Carpenter for pricing. When I bought my 50 this spring, the owner had just replaced the master with a single service one, I would recommend upgrading to a dual service master. I don't know how critical originality is with you, ( you have a beautiful car) but I feel a dual master is safer if your car is a driver. I'm still getting used to mine. JMHO Wes

Talked to the mechanic this morning. He has all the parts except one kit and will have it Tuesday. My knee made it impossible for me to work on it myself. Saw the doctor this morning and he is starting me on a new path that I hope helps.
