Any of you have a passenger side sill/scuff plate laying around? There are new ones but I'm a weirdo and don't want new if I can avoid it.
Hard to see it really but friend thought he'd mess with the good side for a couple hours and then go to cruise. Well we thought we'd do some adjusting because my car runs so rich and bout gassed him out. On and off of the carb 4 times or so and think might have the vacuum leak gone. It was huge!

The screws holding the plate on the bottom side of the accelerator pump was hitting the spacer and making a gap and the new fangled carb spacers aka performance gaskets according the butt nugget at parts store (will never go to that one again) with the 2 holes in each corner was causing a leak through the extra hole that isn't used on mine. We made our own as the store guy was a jerk and we didn't want to run cross country to another store. So in the end we didn't make it to the cruisel=.

This is his ride, which will explain why i almost gassed him to death, amazing what you smell more of when in a topless car! '59 Ranchible conchero, whatever it may be called, this is Rusty. Started out as a rusted out ranchero, can still see the ground when looking through the hole where the door hinges are. Started out gonna be a ratrod and he went the other way. Met him bout 3 or 4 yrs ago when he wanted to see how the convertible top boot was done. Includes rattle can paint job, shower wall door panels painted black and a f150 toneau cover trunk lid. He moded the tail light buckets so the '57 lenses would fit in there as he liked the cone in the center. Somewhere i have more pics from when i first saw it, didn't have wing windows then either.

Re: Used Scuff Plate '64 Changed my mind

Think I'll just buy the new ones, hate new shiny stuff but won't maybe won't take long to not be, I'm a weirdo! Mine are actually shiny still just one is crushed.
A guy i know is trying to sell a dual cold air intake thing with K&N filters on the ends, and i told him heck no, too much shiny stuff under the hood then. lol
Similar to this.

Your post is all over the place, so I'm gonna just guess by the title you want two plates where the carpet ends and the door meets on the floor, yes?

If so, if you are willing to use a set from a 63 Galaxie, I've got 3-4 sets.
I'm offshore still but will be back in a week or two.

Yep you guessed correct, only really need just the passenger side but 63 are probably different so a pair would work to match. Not real picky, not like i'm going to have the doors open a lot nor both at the same time to even see they are different. :)

I think Richard has some for me. Thanks for remembering! I probably would of forgot, it's what I'm good at! :)


Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I've been offshore the last two weeks.

If you still want them, pm me, otherwise, good luck!
