If Your Truck Could Dream

Two classic truck lovers have introduced a new line of art posters that pay tribute to both the wonderful old trucks and the classic racing posters of the same era. Of course, very few trucks were ever actually entered in the grand races of LeMans, Monaco, Grand Prix, Budapest…but every old truck is entitled to dream.

Classic Truck Posters is the brainchild of John and Susan Hansen who love old trucks and are in the process of restoring a 1953 International Harvester R-112 Series pickup.

The site offers an ever-expanding garage of classic trucks, starting with an exhaustive collection of Internationals and moving on to Fords, Chevys, Dodges, Studes, Willys, and more to come down the road.

All posters are printed 18 x 24 on quality poster stock with 80-year inks and can be shipped within the USA for a flat rate of $10 or worldwide for a slightly higher charge.

Locked Up!

Performance Automatic has developed a simple and easy way to control the lock up on your GM 200-4R or 700-R4 transmission.

The “Pro Shift E” is a completely solid state adjustable on-delay timer relay. Activated by either 12+ or ground this gives you a variable control when your torque converter locks up. With a single turn potentiometer, it is easy to adjust and gives you a time range from 0 to 10 seconds and comes complete with its own wiring harness.

The PA11400 “Pro Shift E” lockup delay box comes complete with its own wiring harness.

Against The Grain

There’s something about a woodgrained dash that no other finish can match for sheer elegance and beauty. It traditionally required hours of tedious work, and you paid dearly for it.

Thankfully, it’s the 21st century, and Juliano’s offers woodgraining by a process known as hydographics—which translates to fast turnaround and lower prices. The process is a modern, state-of the-art technique that recreates the same old world finishes we love.

There is an infinite range of color possibilities in yellows, tans, reds, and brown wood tones, in every traditional woodgrain style such as oak, burlwood, birdseye maple, rosewood, walnut, cherry, etc. Turnaround time is days, not months, and large pieces such as outer station wagon trim are no problem. Juliano’s can woodgrain virtually any kind of part made of any material, including steering wheels, and all types of large trim panels.
