    1930 66 Royal Sedan

    Just purchased this Sedan and see that the windshield has a regulator above it. This pulls the windshield straight up. Was this an option or did these come standard? Also looking for front and rear seats.

    according to the book 70 years of Chrysler , in the 1930 section it states "the windsheilds of all closed models could be raised by turning the handle above the wheel"

    Thanks much for info! Also trying to read Fedco badge. It appears the letters H I on top of ribbon and H D on bottom with the Chrysler written in the middle. Does this make any sense or I just can't see well? Also engine # C2 2122. Can't find body # on door pillar.

    Hi-if youra car has a Fedco plate it won't have a body serial # on the RH door jamb.
    The Fedco plaate has 7-8 digits in a combination of alpha and numeric characters which state the serial # in code. the code is explained as 0-9 for the following successive letters-chrysled. You translate the fedco letters into # for the full serial #. It can be very difficult to read the #s and letters on the Fedco plate due to rust, etc.
    The engine #C2---- makes it an series 66 engine.

    Thanks for your help. The engine is in the machine shop now and he wasn't sure about the model. Thanks again, this should help him.

    Hi I too have a 1930 66 sedan. Anyone know where I could find:

    1) Regulator for windscreen
    2) Regulators for left rear and right rear side windows
    3) Locking external door handle
    4) Bypass oil filter cannister and element

    Cheers

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    Hi, I too am doing up a 66 sedan, judging by your engine number you have a early model 66 with a 195.6 cu in engine, the later model engine was slightly larger and had 5 numbers on the engine block. I have a copied owners hand book if that is of any interest to you. Do you need any other parts? I am looking for the a complete light and throttle levers on the steering wheel and a fedco badge

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    We just rebuilt the engine and the bore and stroke worked out to be a 218 c.i. I would very much be interested in an owners hand book. Also just found out my siverdome head has a crack and my radiator doesn't look too good either. I too will need a light lever. I just had the stromberg carb come back from Classic Carbs and looks great. Can't wait to fire it up. Maybe next week. I think I may start it even with the cracked head. Started working on the wood for the top. Should go pretty well as all the wood is in fair shape to use as patterns.

    I may have a head for you if you are interested. Give me the stamped info on the silverdome along with dimensions.

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    Measurements of my head are 7" x 24 7/8". Stamped numbers read 3229 S01977-1 Silverdome. (I think it's an S).
    Thanks for your help.

    Dana J,

    I have a silverdome head that measures 7"x 24 7/8" but the numbers are different. I am not an expert so I don't know if they are different. The numbers I have are 78381-2.

    What are you going to do to your roof lumber? I need to do a restoration on mine so any work you do with plenty of pictures would be much appreciated!

    Thanks
    Dan

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    My head has a dodge brothers emblem on it. Do you know what year it came off of and how much you might want for it. On the roof timber I am thinking of making several. Would you be able to post a pic of the head?

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    A Dodge emblem on a Chrysler? Are you sure? It is from a '29 Chrysler model 65. I know a lot of the parts on the 66's and 65's are interchangeable. I don't know about the head though.

    I will have my wife send you a picture ('Cause I don't know how!) You want it sent to a specific address?

    Re: 1930 66 Royal Sedan

    Usually, the vehicle serial number on the frame is located over the rear springs on the driver's side. On the outside of the frame rail just ahead of the axle is where it should be. Not certain, but the export frame MAY have it on the passenger side, same area. It usually takes a good rubbing with a wire brush to expose it.
