<VV> Clutch-head screws in FCs

Many years ago, I picked up a 1961 Corvan with a seriously-early VIN.  I 
no longer remember exactly how early, only that it was single-digit 
early, like, say, 100,006.

Anyway, that van had some features I had never seen before or since, 
including a forward roof bow like the one seen in owners manual/shop 
manual photos, and clutch-head screws EVERYWHERE.

Obviously, later FCs switched to Phillps-head screws for most of the 
small fasteners, but this Corvan had 'em everywhere.

Years ago I did pick up a 3/8-drive clutch head tool in the size 
commonly throughout FC production, a tool which I continue to use -- 
have used within the past year.
