FEBRUARY 2017 THE SHOP 41 1937-'40 Chevy Business Coupe Gas Tanks Tanks Inc., Monticello, Iowa, introduces its new 1937-'40 Chevy Business Coupe Gas Tank. The tank fits in the original location inside of the car, and stock dimensions and capacity make it an easy swap from the original. Made from laser-straight dies, the reproduction mirrors the original tank with two key changes: The filler neck is removable, and the supply and drain plugs are a larger 3/8-inch NPT fitting to feed today's larger engines. Firebird Headlamp Bezels Classic Industries, Huntington Beach, California, offers reproduction Headlamp Bezels for 1970-'73 Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am models. The bezels are manufactured from high-quality zinc die-cast materials and finished with a polished, bright chrome shine. The reproduction headlamp bezels are sold individually without hardware, and mounting hardware is available separately. Small Beehive Backup Lights Watson's StreetWorks, Nashua, New Hampshire, presents Small Beehive Backup Lights that combine 1950s styling with 21st century technology. Each light has bright white LEDs in a beehive lens. The machined billet base comes with a brushed finish providing a high-tech finishing touch, with a polished finish available. The lights easily mount to a flat surface with only three holes needed, using the hardware provided. Sold in pairs, they measure 2-1/4 inches at the base and 2-1/8 inches tall. Chevy Pickup Instrument Sets CON2R, Beaverton, Oregon, offers its SuperStock Instrument Sets for 1947- '54 Chevrolet pickups. Rather than duplicate the factory layout of "one and four" gauges, CON2R gave the speedometer and tachometer equal importance and balanced the four auxiliary gauges in a "two by two" configuration. The textures, windows and raised lettering of the originals have been preserved, while behind the original-looking faces are electronic stepper motors that drive the needles with a high level of accuracy and dependability. Car Care Products Mothers Polish, Huntington Beach, California, presents its Speed Line of premium-quality Car Care Products. The six new products include: Speed Clay 2.0 fast, durable and versatile paint restoration and surface prep tool; Speed Spray Wax for tackling everything from light dust and pollen to greasy fingerprints and road grime; Speed Interior Detailer; Speed All-Purpose cleaner that can also be used under the hood; Speed Foaming Glass & Screen aerosol mist; and Speed Tire Shine. C10 Billet Door Handles Eddie Motorsports, Rancho Cucamonga, California, offers its new Billet Aluminum Door Handles for 1967-'72 Chevrolet C10 trucks. The one-piece handles are CNC- machined from solid pieces of 6061-T6 aluminum and are a direct replacement for the stock pot metal parts. The handles are sold in pairs and include gaskets and stainless steel fasteners. They are available in five styles with nine different custom finishes. HOT ROD & CUSTOMIZATION
