41-48 Ford Firewalls & Technical Information

The Set-Back Information Provided on This Page is for Your Information Only
These References Are to Help You Decide Which Firewall Kit Will Best Fit Your Particular Application.

There Are Many Factors Which Will Affect Your Choice of Kits. Engine Set-Back, Radiator Core Thickness, Air Conditioning or Superchargers. You Need to Determine The Length of The Engine Package You Intend to Install & Then Figure Out The Distance You Have From The Back of The Radiator Core to The Stock or Existing Firewall. By Doing This, You Will Know How Much Extra Room or Set-Back You Will Need. The Firewall Only Fits In One Place In The Body But Your Engine Can Be Moved Forward or Backward As Much As Needed to Obtain Proper Clearances.
If You Have Any Questions, Please Call Our Customer Service Line At (928) 420-6346

The 1942-48 Ford Front Sheet Metal Rides on a Factory Core Support That is Y Shaped & Has One Mounting Bolt In The Middle. This Allows The Front Sheet Metal to Rock & Flex. As a Result, The Front Sheet Metal is Often Out of Alignment. We Designed a Posi-Align Core Support That is a Direct Bolt-In. it Mounts The Sheet Metal Out on Each Frame Rail & That Not Only Gives You Plenty of Adjustment Where You Had None Before, But it Assures You it Will Stay In Place Once Aligned

The Posi-Align Core Support Also Allows You to Mount Your Radiator 2 1/3” Lower Than Stock, Which In Turn Lets You Use a Flex Fan Instead of an Electric Fan.

The Core Support Kit Comes With a Necessary Hardware List & a Front Lower Air Deflector Kit. The Air Deflect or Really Cleans Up The Area Behind The Grill. (Fits Ford Only, Will Not Fit a Mercury)

Ford Smoothie Kit Inner Aprons & 421046 Ford Louvered Kit Inner Aprons. The 42-48 Ford Has Some Strange Shaped Front Inner Fender Aprons. We Redesigned Them to Allow More Air In & for a Better Look. Made of 18 Gauge Steel With a Bead Rolled Into Them, They Are Really a Work of Art. Our Louvered Aprons Have 64 Louvers. When We Redesigned Them The Stock Stone Shields No Longer Fit, So We Made New Ones. They Now Fit, Are Larger & Look Better. We Included Them In Each Kit. They Bolt Up to Your Stock Core Support or Our Posi-Align Core Support.

421022    $200
 Center Rocker Box
Passenger Side Long 
One of The Really Bad Trouble Spots on Any 1941-48 Ford or Mercury Has Always Been The Rocker Boxes. This Box-Like Body Stiffener Runs From The Firewall Area to The Rear Wheel House on Both Sides on The Car. They Have a Tendency to Rust Out Because The Originals Are Very Thin on The Inside & They Fill With Dirt. We Do Not Make Just an Outer Skin, We Make a Complete Rocker Box With The Nut Plates Welded Into Place for The Running Boards. Since These Are Very Long In The Completed Stage We Decided to Offer Them In Sections. Each Side is Available In Three Sections. .

You Can Purchase All or Just One Part If That is All You Need. These Boxes Are Manufactured of 16 Gauge Cold Rolled Steel. If You Have Any Questions Give Us a Call At (928) 420-6346 & We Will Be Glad to Help
