    1938 Chrysler C19 Imperial Convertible Coupe Parts Needed

    I am looking for the following parts for a 1938 Chrysler Imperial convertible coupe (C19):

    - Complete front seat assembly, including adjusters/sliders, or very detailed photographs and dimensions of same from someone's car. The seat appears to be the same on 1937 and 1938 Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto and Chrysler convertible coupes, possibly 1939 Plymouth convertible coupe as well. My car is missing the entire front seat assembly, so any leads or information would be appreciated;

    - Rumble seat bottom cushion assembly (or detailed dimensions and photos as mine is missing);

    - Rumble seat interior panel patterns;

    - Top-of-the-headlight trim strips (1938 Chrysler Imperial only);

    - Front fender chevrons (1938 Chrysler Imperial only);

    - Coupe or convertible Left Side stainless steel door and rear body trim (I am missing the rear body piece from the door to the tail along the quarter panel, as well as the door). Chrysler C18 Royal or C19 Imperial coupe or convertible coupe trim works;

    - Running Board stainless trim, top strips and side molding (any 1938 Chrysler Imperial C19 trim should fit);

    - Convertible coupe door sill plate (good sample(s), pattern, dimensioned sketch with detailed photos, or whatever I can use to get new ones made - mine are missing).

    - Horn button and horn ring for optional banjo/chrome spoke steering wheel (horn button has raised "Imperial") (or I would be interested in a complete steering wheel);

    - Passenger door window regulator assembly, including window channels, window frame, etc (or a complete door) same on 1937 and 1938 Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler, and '37-'39 Plymouth convertible coupes with one piece glass (no vent window).

    - Windshield wiper arms, blades and blade guide rods that attach to windshield frame bracket, or detailed photos and measurements of same (all 1937-1938 all mopar convertibles are the same).

    - Interior sun visors and rods/mounts.

    - Pattern of the windshield header trim panel (where sun visors mount) or detailed photos of what it looks like.

    Please send me a private message with any leads or details, or reply directly to this thread.


    Thanks!

    I've revised my list above. Many of the parts or information that I need can also come from Plymouth, Dodge, Desoto and Chrysler convertible coupes. I'm convinced that I will have to have new seat frames made.

    In central Minnesota are two of the nations largest junk yards. I'll give you links to both, but I think that it's the first one that I recall having a '37 or '38 Imperial coupe. There's somebody back east that custom makes metal rumble seat frames to spec. I don't know where I know that from, but I'll continue to ponder it.

    I've been to both French Lake and Windy Hills, but that was over 15 years ago. There wasn't much there for the Imperial at the time I went. I will look into it to see if they've added to the yards since that time. Thanks for the links! I might have to go for a weekend trip!

    The funny thing about both of those yards is that they are always adding more old cars. I surprises me, but I suspect that in many cases guys finally give up on life long projects and want them gone quickly. It's sad to see old cars parted out, but maybe in the long run they serve a greater purpose that way.

    I thought I would put this back up to the top. I found a pair of visor mounts, but they ended up being both of the same side. I am still in need of visors as well.
