Default parts needed 58 tbird fender ornaments, bumper jack

Does anyone have a bumper jack for sale? Also need fender ornaments for the 58, I have found new ones but are a bit pricey. Does anyone have any used in good shape? Thanks.

Cool

Gary with respect to the gunnel sites ( front fender ornaments ) for your 58 they are rare to obtain in good condition. It took me two (2) years to finally get a new pair still in the Ford boxes off EBay. I can tell you they make a remarkable difference to the lines and complete the look with the grill and front bumper chrome package. Expensive but well worth the investment

Hi I have a bumper jack. I have the jack and the hook in the house. The base and the handle must be in the garage. I can't search for them now but if you're interested let me know.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Gary tells me he has had a jack offered to him for his 58 that has separate hooks for the front and the rear bumpers. The jack that came with my 60 has only one hook. Is there a difference between 58 and 60 bumpers? Would my 60 jack be correct for his 58? Thanks.

Rick

To my knowledge Ford used the same jack from 58-60 that had only one hook.
