FLOOR SHIFTER

I saw a post somewhere earlier and can't find it. Will a generic 3 speed floor shifter work on my 49 P-17 Fastback with original trans? I think that the post said that it would not. I want to make the change but only after I am sure it will work with little modification. Dollars are too hard to come...

Re: 49 Chopped and dropped

Anybody have pics or a link to a chopped '49 P-17 Fastback? Preferrably a "HOW TO" article. I found a '50 Chevy which has/had a similar roofline and trunk. Looks like a serious amount of work to me. The link to this how to is: http://www.rodandcustommagazine.com/techarticles/0903rc_1950_chevy_choppe...

Re: 40's harley davidson tail lights on 49

I forgot to mention another cool custom trick I learned a few years ago when building a "chopped" 1956 Cushman Eagle while in the Amazon River Basin of Peru. Very lightly spray paint the tail light lens with flat black paint. Just enough to appear to have covered the entire lens. When it is lit up, ...

Re: 40's harley davidson tail lights on 49

I think you are referring to what we vintage Harley fans call TOMBSTONE tail lights. I have one on my custom '73 Sportster and was considering using them myself on my '49 P-17 Fastback. Here are a couple of pics. They are really cool looking tail lights! You can even buy skull covers etc. for them. ...

Alabama find

I found this 1949 P-17 Special Deluxe Fastback in an old radiator shop in Russellville, Alabama. It is in original (except for paint) unrestored condition. It is missing a couple of pieces of trim and a radio pushbutton, otherwise it is complete with original motor and trans. It even still has the o...
