    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    I would try contacting Blissfulsob he said he has 2 engines. Maybe he has atleast one good solenoid he would sell you. You may also try checking to see what else the solenoid fits. You may find it listed for a different car on ebay. Alot of people list stuff based on what they took it off from. Not necessarily what it will fit. I haven't checked but that should fit atleast a few different years and other Mopar products.

    I ran the numbers in my Mopar catalog and the solenoid was used 1936-1941 all Chrysler 6 and 8 cylinders. I ran it through my Autolite catalog and it is unique to just Chrysler cars. Not used on any other makes. It's not even used on other cars in the Mopar lineup.

    Seeing these shows us EXACTLY why Chrysler products won design awards in 1936. Absolutely perfect proportions and gorgeous lines!

    Anybody interested in buying my car? I don't have time to work on it. No rust, family owned and always garage kept, needs some interior work. Drivers side Glass and molding around the windows.

    Fuel pumps are available aftermarket reproduction. I think I bought mine from Roberts. The starter solenoid is a tougher item to come by. You may see if you can have it rebuilt if you have any local shops that do repairs on Generators and starters.

    Is that the original paint on the car? It looks so good in the photos, so does your interior, I would seriously consider driving it as is, after the mechanics are solid. There is a real appreciation for quality survivor cars nowadays. I own a 36 dodge 4 dr sedan I bought in barn condition, but the paint was too thin and rattle can primer was shot over most of it. Its now been repainted and looks great, but I'm sorry I couldn't revive it "as is".

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    Do any of the owners on here know excatly where the radio speaker and tube assembly "box" mounts? I have been told it goes over the steering column which makes sense but I have to cut down the left hand glove box liner for it to fit. I just want to be sure it's right before I go hacking my new 80.00 Glove box up. Also exactly where does it mount. I want to know before I go drilling random holes in firewall. No existing knockout plugs match the mounting tabs. Thanks for any help, in advance, Randy

    I'm glad to see there are so many people here with Chrysler Airstream's.
    AS some of you may know me I have had two of these since the late 80's
    and as of right now I think this latest thread has been the biggest gathering of Airstream info. I have ever seen. Cheers to all your restoration hard work, and keeping it as original as possible.
    I may have a solenoid for a six volt starter. But as noted a good starter shop can rewind the solenoid. This is the type is work it takes to really restore such a rare vehicle. Now, I don't like to promote changes but if your vehicle needs a lot of expensive electrical parts it will be cheaper to convert the entire system to 12 V. This was the only way I could afford to keep my vehicles from the crusher.

    If I can be of assistance feel free to contact me.

    Most other Mopar vehicles in those times had a manual pedal that
    you pushed that engaged the starter.. These detail are what I like about
    the Chrysler C7 C8 line, over all the other mopar products back then.

    Ok, seeing these nice cars out here, can someone take a picture of under the front seat, where the battery box is so I can see the layout, as well as what the passenger side looks like, please?

    This site's been pretty quite, everyone move somewhere else.....?

    Anyone have a steering wheel like this? All the others I've seen are plain black, is it possible this is not original?

    The T86A transmission and S1 engine were obviously from an Airstream.
    I have drawings of these transmissions and can be contacted at johnspinks@dodo.com.au
    The steering wheel is an original and is known as a banjo wheel. The outer rim is black.

    Exclamation Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    Hi folks, I had asked earlier about how to bring out the wood grain in the dash, whether I need to redo it or I can buff it out. I don't know hows its applied, but here are some pictures.
    Couldn't find the forum where I had asked about it, thought it was the AirStream. This is what I got

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    I would redo the woodgraining myself. I found a great source at Packards of Oregon under tech articles. It was cheap and fun and if you have any artistic talent at all, you should be able to get results you can be proud of! My 36 Dodge dash and garnish mouldings are done and I've seen better, but I'm happy and for 50 bucks in spray paint and etc, it was worth it.

    Whatever you do...don't buff it. It will disappear very fast if you do.

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    I think it's past bringing back. Someone once suggested brown shoe polish I used the wax paste type on my 35 Chrysler dash. I used it and it looked better. Be it far from spectacular. There are no abbrasives in it. My roadster had been repainted at one time and that paint was peeling so I bought a kit from grainit and did mine all over. I chose an incorrect pattern and color but that's the way I wanted it.
    The exception I would use to do it again would be to use a different clear coat than they recommend. I am getting bad solvent pop in my finish and will probably have to redo everything again. Not fun. I won't tell you the number of hours I had doing it the first time.
    Here is mine finished.

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    So what is it you use to get that outcome? Is it a kit, laminate or paint? Very green on restoration.
    It's beautiful. I will try the shoe polish, but like you said think it's beyond shoe polish at this point.
    The Packards of Oregon didn't work, didn't see any links to other articles. Just an expose on the pictured Packard.

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    Steve9, thanks for the link, good article, and thanks to AuburnSeeker, I now have a a good grain pattern to follow....I will experiment a little and see if I can create a burl look maybe on the glove box doors.....Its all fun....
    Latest update is I'm actually driving the Chrysler home this weekend, its about 6 miles from the house, replacing the fuel pump, did the trick, and it sits and idles quite nicely now. So will have some outside pictures to post next week. Then its in the barn, for tear down....

    Re: 1936 Chrysler Airstream C7 owners?

    New topic; On the 36 Airstream, the battery sits under the driver in a hole,
    1. Is there a cover plate that fits over that, looks like there is supposed to be.
    2. On the passenger side, there is an indentation like the battery well but not all the way thru the floor, that looks like it could be used for storage, is that what its for, or does something else fit in there. A picture of that area would be nice....
    Nice to see this area of the forum growing..
