    Does that mean, you got trailer socket bracket too? Any chance of making a repro?

    Do you have an image of what this trailer socket bracket is supposed to look like?

    That bracket and the socket are the only things my '64 is missing as well. Decided I'm not going to sweat it.

    Socket is not a big deal, plenty available on eBay. Bracket is another story.

    No don't have that. Nor the pintle hook or the hand crank bracket or the winch. But those parts were not on our 40 when new.
    Still looking for the dual sided turn signals.

    I love the designs of all things Con-Ferr, but until today I never owned any of it. @pardion sold me this: DSC04232 (1).JPG
    Installed and doing its job it looks like this:

    Another view. Such elegance. 20181206_202854.jpg
    A little space in between to stow something, but what?

    Also today, the third amigo (center) for my tool roll's screwdriver pockets. Thanks @wscbill for a nice auction of early tools. 20181206_193320.jpg

    Nothing says, "Don't tailgate me" like the 5 gallons of gas that the tailgater would hit first.

    Not that a tailgater is paying any attention or ponders their mortality and flammability.

    Actually, perhaps this was thoughtless of me. Out of concern for my fellow motorist I should only carry fuel in the cabin and under the seat of my passenger. :rimshot:

    Don't know when Koito changed from its round logo to the present day's, but I sure like this glass. 20181214_062755.jpg
    Perhaps, as has been suggested, I should change my name to HelloKoito.
