Hot Time In The Old Truck
Not everyone likes to be cold. If you only need a heater in your truck and don't want to mess with A/C, Vintage Air now offers a new heater unit with the same precise servo-controls as their famous Gen-II A/C systems. Three electronic switches control the servo actuated water valve, the blend-air door for floor and defrost flow, and the fan speed. The Gen-II features a powerful fan motor and a high-capacity blower fan. The ultra-compact dimensions make an easy fitment behind shallow truck dashes. Contact Vintage Air at 800-862-6658, or online at www.vintageair.com.
Improve the performance of your '54-'64 Ford Y-block V-8 with these all-new Y-Block Tru-Ram Performance Exhaust Manifolds from Speedway Motors. When the Y-block V8 was first introduced in the mid-'50s, Ford Motor Company realized the engine needed to produce more torque and horsepower in its truck applications. Ford engineers designed these W-style manifolds to help deliver the extra power necessary. Speedway Motors has faithfully reproduced Ford's original design using new tooling, improved casting processes and high-nickel-content iron. The resulting manifolds produce significant horsepower improvements over standard passenger car headers or exhaust manifolds. Call Speedway Motors at 800-979-0122, or visit them online at www.speedwaymotors.com.
