Ford F-1 and F-100 Parts from Honest Charley

The term “hot rod” generally refers to a vehicle built before 1948, and heavily modified in terms of its appearance and performance. However, post-’48 vehicles are picking up in popularity, especially after the NSRA allowed these so-called “late-model” vehicles into its events. One particular group of vehicles that strikes a chord with hot rodders is old pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-series. That’s why Honest Charley Speed Shop has introduced a new product line specifically for ’48-56 Ford F-1 and F-100 pickups. Whether you’re building a beater or a full-on show truck, the ’48-56 Ford truck is an excellent platform to build upon, and Honest Charley Speed Shop has a variety of restoration components when you’re ready to take the next step. If you’re interested in this new line of Ford F-1 and F-100 truck parts, contact Honest Charley Speed Shop toll free at 888-795-7077 or check out their newly renovated website at www.honestcharley.com.

Add Class to your Classic

American Autowire, a premier automotive electrical manufacturer for street rod, muscle, and classic cars, is announcing an improved Courtesy Light Dim Down Module (PN 510197). This electronic module allows the courtesy lights to remain illuminated for a user-selected amount of time, or until the ignition switch is turned on. At the end of the timed delay the courtesy lights will gradually fade to dark. An adjustment knob allows the delay time to be set from 0 to 60 seconds. The module includes a mounting bracket and fully detailed color instructions, too. This new module replaces the former Courtesy Light Delay Module (PN 500777). This revised module accommodates up to six 1156-type bulbs and can be attached to other accessory modules with either the included locking wedge or a stand-alone mounting bracket. The Courtesy Light Dim Down Module is available right now for $69. For more information call 800-482-WIRE or visit www.americanautowire.com.

Music to your Ears

They’re back! The famous heavy-duty mufflers that were used by the original hot rodders in the ’40s and ’50s are available once again. For those who are not familiar with Porter Mufflers, they are vintage steel-pac mufflers that have a very deep, desirable, unique sound. Porter Mufflers are still hand-manufactured right here in the USA, just like they were back in the ’30s. The bodies are made from quality 16 gauge, aluminized steel and have a steel coil center. They are hand-packed with stainless steel wool to give them that classic, vintage rumble your ride deserves. Special care goes into each handmade muffler to assure they are of the highest quality and built to last a lifetime. Porter Mufflers were first made popular back in the ’30s. They were started by the Porter brothers of Los Angeles, California. The Porter Muffler Manufacturing Company became an institution on the West Coast in 1938. Their policy was to give their customers the best possible product they could buy anywhere, and give it to them at a fair price. Porter Mufflers continued to grow and became a household name all across America through the ’50s and ’60s. To get your hands on a pair of these macho mufflers, contact Porter at 763-463-3452 or www.portermufflers.com.
