APRIL PROGRAM – MARVIN COFFEE
The April program stars Marvin Coffee. Marvin, an Albuquerque native, raced flathead fords mainly at
Speedway park in the 60's and will share stories of his experiences at Speedway from the racers’ view.
Marvin will also share some of his secrets for hotrodding a flathead for circle track racing. Keeping a
flathead cool on the track may give us some ideas on how to keep them cool while driving on the street.
PLEASE NOTE: All meetings include Show & Tell. Members are encouraged to bring items to share.
NEXT MEETING: Tuesday, April 2, 7:30 p.m., Old Car Garage.
APRIL SHOW & SHARE: Frank Corey will bring one of his cars for the 7:00 Show & Share.

December Holiday Party
We need refreshment volunteers for a number of months. Your help would be appreciated.
We have added a new Show & Share feature to each of our business meetings this year. Each month
a club member will volunteer to bring a Ford to the meeting and to spend about ten minutes at 7:00
discussing the car. We will pass around a sign-up sheet and ask for a different member to sign up each
month. It will be a great way to do some informal show-and-tell and for us to learn about each others’
cars and restoration efforts. If you are going to be showing your car at the meeting, please be sure to
call Bob Agnew so he can arrange a space for your car.
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR APRIL 2013
Jay Hertz, President
Ford and Aviation
In a previous article, I wrote about Ford Motor Company’s production of B-24 Liberator bombers for use
in WWII. The Ford factory had been conscripted to build the bombers, together with tanks and other war
materiel. Ford’s production of aircraft for WWII was not undertaken out of a profit motive, nor was it done
because of Henry Ford’s affinity for aircraft per se. Rather, the company was forced into it as a matter
of national need. But much earlier in Henry Ford’s life, he did produce aircraft of various types, motivated
not only by potential profit, but also by a fascination for aircraft. Here is the story of Henry’s love affair
with aviation, based in part on the treatment of that subject in Douglas Brinkley’s book, “Wheels For the
You may remember that Henry Ford devoted a good deal of his engineering genius to metallurgy. By
the time of WWI, Ford’s factories were renown for their scientific approach to metallurgy and for the
excellence of their results in practice. A prime example was the use of vanadium in steel alloys, which
made the Model T frames so strong and light. This expertise was combined with Ford’s penchant for
precision machining, which Ford had pioneered. (I will bring to the April meeting my set of Johansson
blocks, of the type used by Ford to calibrate machine tools, which help to show the rigid adherence to
precise measurements upon which Henry Ford insisted).
These two advances -- metallurgy and precision machining -- were precisely the qualities needed to
support the nascent aircraft industry in its first decades. These two qualities combined to yield lightness
and strength, which were essential to aircraft development. Most aircraft engines in the first two decades
of the twentieth century used a series of separate cylinders, ranging from six on training planes to twelve
on bombers, and they were generally configured in radial form. In order to achieve proper weight
distribution and a satisfactory center of gravity, the need to lighten the engines became critical.
The Liberty engine used in many WWI planes was key to America’s air superiority. Its design was
approved by the War Department in mid-1917. It was originally produced by the Packard Motor
Company, but Packard’s chief engineer, Jesse Vincent, approached Henry Ford to help resolve the
problems Packard was experiencing, and to seek ways to lighten the power-plant. Ford accepted with
mixed emotions. On the one hand, his belief in pacifism told him to refrain from producing war materiel.
On the other hand, the task outlined by Packard presented the type of engineering challenge that Ford
relished. In late 1917, the U.S. joined the Allies, and Ford overcame his reluctance to build weapons of
war. That proved to be very fortuitous to the war effort, as Ford was able to dramatically improve the
quality of the engines and also the time it took to produce them. He reduced the cylinder head machining
to an astonishingly low number of operations, and he reduced the cost from $24 to $8.50 per cylinder.
Ford Motor Company began producing Liberty engines in August, 1917, and ultimately delivered over
415,000 cylinders, not to mention complete engines.
Although Henry Ford never actually flew in an airplane until 1927 or 1928, aviation had been in Ford’s
blood by the time of WWI. In 1912, he toured the Curtiss Airplane Factory and met Glenn Curtiss. Even
earlier, Ford had admired the Wright brothers, studied their methods, and become their personal friend.
Oddly, however, Ford encouraged Curtiss to challenge the Wright brothers’ airplane patent. Perhaps
Ford was already anticipating the patent fight he would later have (and win) against the holders of the
Selden auto patent. But the Wright patent involved technology that was so unique and brilliant that it was
not assailable by Curtiss or anyone else, unlike Selden’s patent which was more generic and obvious.
Later in Ford’s life, he maintained friendships with the Wright brothers and even honored them by moving
their historic bicycle factory from Ohio to Dearborn as part of Greenfield Village’s tribute to famous
Americans. (Curtiss and the Wright brothers later merged to form Curtiss-Wright, eliminating any need
for patent disputes between them).
In the decade after WWI, Ford Motor Company was the only U.S. automaker to branch out into aviation.
As early as March, 1920, Henry Ford made sure that the company’s certificate to do business in Michigan
included authority to build and sell airplanes. Henry and Edsel thought there was money to be made in
the fledgling airplane business. Then, in 1924, Henry expanded further by agreeing to underwrite the
cost of building an airport in Dearborn. The Ford Airport, as it became called, occupied 719 acres, and
required the installation of more than 20 miles of underground drain tiles. It was open to the public as
well as to the military, and it had a 210-foot mast to allow dirigibles to tie up. Later, Ford hired his
architect friend Albert Kahn to design the Dearborn Inn, which was the first American hotel to adjoin an
airfield. The Dearborn Inn was completed in 1931, just as Henry was turning his focus to the new V-8
In connection with the Ford Airport, Henry had become acquainted with William Stout, an aviation
engineer, who built an 8-passenger plane on the Ford Airport premises. The plane was so successful
that it received enthusiastic support from Wall Street and the public in general, and helped propel aviation
into commercial success. That success was aided by the Kelley Air Mail Act, which promoted private
commercial aviation by turning over government mail routes to private contractors. In April, 1925, Ford
initiated the country’s first regular commercial airline along with Bill Stout, known as Air Transportation
Service. It began by flying freight every other day between Chicago and Dearborn. By the company’s
first anniversary, it had logged 1,492 flights.
By June, 1926, Ford’s enthusiasm for aviation reached a new high, with the successful testing of Ford’s
new Tri-Motor. The Tri-Motor was built of polished corrugated metal, representing a huge advancement
over the wood and canvass aircraft of the time. With three engines, the Tri-Motor was reliable, able to
carry eight passengers, and easy to fly, with a landing speed of just 60 mph. Ford promoted the sale of
Tri-Motors by including a trained pilot with each sale. The new owner would then employ the pilot. This
idea added to the reputation of the planes for safety and reliability. Explorer Richard Byrd was so
impressed with the Tri-Motor that he planned to use one on his North Pole expedition, but unfortunately,
the Stout factory (where the Tri-Motors were produced) burned down before his plane was finished.
Later, when Byrd flew to the South Pole, he did use a Tri-Motor. The Ford family helped underwrite both
expeditions, advancing $20,000 for the North Pole expedition, and $100,000 for the South Pole
Henry Ford’s fascination with aviation grew to include production of yet another plane, to become known
as the Flivver Plane. It was a two-cylinder mini-plane, and it was intended for sale to the public as a
low-cost alternative to other forms of transportation. But its story did not end well. During an
attention-getting non-stop solo flight from Dearborn to Miami in February, 1928, the Flivver Plane flew
off course, turned sideways over the Atlantic, and crashed just off the coast. The death of the pilot
devastated Henry Ford and ended production of the Flivver. But the Tri-Motor continued production,
resulting in total sales of 199 units.
Throughout the early days of flying, Henry made friends with the heroes of that industry, just as he had
done with the heroes of car racing. In addition to the Wright brothers, Glenn Curtiss and Bill Stout, Henry
became friends with Charles Lindbergh and was the first person to fly with Lindbergh in the Spirit of St.
Louis after its return from its solo tour to Paris. Henry’s fascination with aviation and aviators probably
never died, even after the Flivver disaster. But the decade of the 1930s was much more devoted to autos
and tractors than it was to aviation. Ford’s venture into actual airplane production ended after the
Tri-Motor production run, and would remain subordinate to his other interests until the exigencies of WWII
forced him back into airplane production.

MARCH 12, 2013 BOARD MEETING MINUTES
by Jay Hertz, President
A. At the direction of the membership, the directors looked at whether annual dues should be decreased.
After discussion, which surrounded the club’s roughly $5000 in reserves and the possible spending of
some of those reserves, it was decided to defer a recommendation on dues reduction until later in 2013.
B. With respect to the $5000 in reserve, the directors discussed whether a significant portion could be
used to help fulfill our mission of preservation and restoration of flathead Fords, and the education of the
public about them, with the additional goal of attracting more club members. The issue will be submitted
to the membership for suggestions and resolution.
C. Additional thoughts for upcoming programs were discussed. These included a movie night to show
old movies such as River Road, Thunder Road, and Drive a Crooked Road. Also, the suggestion to invite
Ed Boyles from the City to talk about Route 66 historical subjects, or to lead a tour of the Santa Fe rail
yard properties. Also, the idea of inviting students from CNM or other technical courses to attend our
meetings or activities.

The following article has shown up in several places. It applies to our Flathead Fords.
Off the AACA forum:
Extended Life Antifreeze: Do Not Use in cars over 10 years old
Information has been published in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club Newsletter concerning the use of
“extended life” antifreeze in cars over 10 years old.
In a nutshell--don’t do it! Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should an “Extended Life” antifreeze, which
utilizes Organic Additive Technology (OAT, H-OAT, or N-OAT) as one of its chemicals, ever be used in
our cars over 10 years old.
It attacks the gaskets and gasket cements in our cars, causing major leaks and forcing ultra-expensive
repairs. The “Silver Ghost Association” Rolls Royce people have documented massive cooling system
failures apparently caused by this antifreeze product. Antifreeze that can be used safely in our cars uses
older-fashioned Inorganic Additive Technology (IAT) additive. You cannot tell by the color of the
antifreeze if it’s safe to use. Also, the product may be labeled “Safe for Older Cars”-- meaning 10 years
old at most – “the over 10 years old covers most of the Hawkeye’s cars!!” Brands to be AVOIDED are
all Prestone lines and Zerex's G-05 in the Gold-color container.
Avoid any “extended-life” antifreeze. None of us wants to pull and rebuild our cars’ engines.
Acceptable brands are Peak, Peak’s HD Product “Sierra,” and Zerex Original Green in the WHITE
container. If any of the OAT, H-OAT, or N-OAT products are in your car the cooling system should
promptly be drained--radiator and block-- the system flushed thoroughly, and IAT antifreeze installed.
EARLY FORD V-8 FOUNDATION & MUSEUM
by Joyce Clements
From the Foundation News, Jan-Feb and Mar-Apr 2013:
The volunteers at the Museum are making good progress on the restoration of the sign that stood in front
of the Ford Rotunda, until the Rotunda was destroyed by fire in 1962. The sign is one of the few items
left from that disaster. The “Deuce Day” organizers donated the proceeds of their show to the restoration
of the sign. Another survivor of the fire is a long white couch that was used in the Rotunda; this has been
discovered and donated. In the meantime, the Museum is collecting donations to build a replica of this
famous structure to house the Museum collection.
On the brick front, the Museum architect Bill Fox, is designing a patio where the
bricks can be displayed permanently. The Tumbleweed RG is in the newsletter as
purchasing a brick in memory of Dick Precit. The picture included shows the bricks
as they are presently displayed. Joyce’s brick is in the center, and Rosie
Rosendale’s brick is to the right. The other bricks this RG has purchased were not yet on display when
the picture was taken in 2011.
The Foundation is gaining members. The entire membership of the VA RG joined under the 2-for-1 plan.
The Foundation is still seeking more members. Individual memberships are $25 per year. Find out more
about the Foundation at www.fordv8foundation.org. There is a donation page now on the web site where
you can make a donation or buy a brick in memory of a fellow enthusiast.

The Ford Times for April 16, 1943 leads has a cover picture of a lady in a welding helmet labelled,
“Easter Bonnet, 1943 Style.”
Several stories in the newspaper are about the Willow Run B-24 production plant. The WPB predicted
that there would be over 500 planes a month turned out “by the time the snow flies.” The VP of the WPB
expressed “surprise” at the progress seen at the plant, and expected that there would be “substantial
Arrangements were made with the Percy Jones Hospital in Battle Creek for 30 injured B-24 crew
members to tour the facilities where the planes were being made. The guests were greeted by “War Hero
Hosts and Hostesses,” employees who had made exceptional production records. These employees
took small groups of them on a personalized tour of the plant.
The riveting team of Mary Herrando and Grace Small set a record by installing 5,217 rivets of varying
sizes, on a B-24, in seven and one-half hours. Way to go Ladies!
It took 24 gallons of paint to paint a B-24. In addition, the planes contain 1,233 different markings, 833
on the inside and 400 on the outside, all of which were applied by hand.
The Willow run plant was “air conditioned” by the installation of 80 fresh air blowers; these handled
5,397,000 cubic feet of air a minute. A special group of oilers spent all their time keeping the machines
oiled and greased; this required 3,755 gallons of oil and 300 pounds of grease each week.
Other articles were about Victory garden planting advice, employee enlistees, conserving rubber (Share
a ride or walk), and recognition of employee achievements.
The stories and articles in these Ford Times newsletters provide an interesting insight into everyday
civilian life during the War.
