    Dash color

    Hello Graham, If your dash is painted body color then it is incorrect, all 1930 DC-8 sedans and 1930 DeSoto CF-8 sedans had a semi-gloss black dash. Simple as that. Your car has been changed and mark my word, one day the Originally Police will come knocking on your door.
  4. Hello David, This too is the first time I have ever seen a body tag on a truck but really that doesn’t mean anything since 99% of the 1928 thru 1932 Dodge Brothers Trucks are gone from the planet. It is my belief that Dodge Brothers Truck Division built most of their own production cabs and bodies. If outside companies built any of the production high volume cabs and bodies we may never know who they were. Whether the Dodge Brothers Truck plant built the cabs and bodies or Joe Blow Body Company from across town did I believe that the cowl assemblies and the stamped steel panels and doors were made by, in this truck’s case, Briggs Body Company. How I come to that conclusion is by the ribbed pattern on the face of the firewall. It is widely thought amongst automotive historians that Briggs Body built the 1930 Plymouth 30-U, the 1930 DeSoto CK-6 and the 1930 Chrysler CJ-6 bodies. If you look up the part number for each of these cars left door for a coupe you will find the same part number. For many years I owned a DeSoto CK-6 convertible coupe and had much time available to study the body construction and it certainly was far from Budd construction designs. I believe that Briggs most likely supplied the cowls, doors and body panels for the Fargo trucks also. I would bet money that Budd did not build the truck body parts or complete bodies since I have never seen a Budd tag on any kind of Dodge Brothers truck from the 1928- 1932 time period but I do think whoever did picked up their idea of tagging the bodies. Until more information and data comes to the surface regarding the origins of the Dodge Brothers Truck bodies I do believe this is the best we can come up with at least regarding this 1929 1/2 ton panel truck.
  5. Here is a image of a FARGO truck counterpart, generally Dodge Brothers Truck Division would build just about anything that the customer would order and pay for.
  6. John is correct on the upper line, it is FISK tires. The lower line is an abbreviation for DISPLAY, speaking of the two side windows.
  7. For all you guys that have your panties in a wad over me using the term “matching numbers” in the above advertisement for my Father’s 1932 Chevrolet, what I was trying to relate was the meaning. It is my understanding that the term “matching numbers” implies that said car has all of it’s original components and that nothing appears to have been changed during the cars life time. Please see the attached documents that relate to Dad’s 1932 Chevrolet Special Sedan. I have shown the below data to Skip Geear of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America and he agrees with my conclusion.

  9. Hello Dave, They are 1930-31 Dodge Brothers DC-8 (no other car used them), if they weren't for a DC-8 I won't have posted the picture. There was three outside handles used on the DC-8 cars, the non-locking handle that the sedan, the coupe and convertible coupe used. The locking handle that was used on the before mentioned cars and a non-locking handle with a longer shaft and threads in the end for use on the roadsters and the phaetons. I am in need of one locking handle and one non-locking handle for this car. Why don't you just buy the car to go with the handles you have? Attached to this post is a picture of a locking outside DC-8 door handle that I seek for the above car. Dave, I will give you a discount on the purchase of this car because I like you😁
  10. My father has decided to sell his original 1932 Chevrolet Special Sedan with 41,000 miles. He purchased it in 1981 from the second owner’s grandson. It is believed to have been sold new in Spokane, Washington and then traded in when just one year old. Dad has the 1934 Washington registration along with a clear Washington title. The car was built in Oakland, California has the original Manganese Blue paint still on it and the original mohair upholstery. It is a completely original numbers matching car, to our knowledge none of the mechanical parts have ever been changed. When we purchased the car the right front side mount fender had been so badly damaged that it was cost prohibitive to fix it so we replaced it with a new old stock fender. Much work has been performed on the car and many accessories have been procured for it. The list of accessories are as follows: the factory extension trunk and rack, the right hand tail light, the second horn (then we had them both restored), a factory heater, and factory mirror clock, factory wind wings. If you would like to arrange to see the car or would like more information please contact me through the AACA mail system. The car is located thirty miles out of Spokane, Washington. As for the price, $12,000.00.

  12. Hello Anyone Reading This, These are just a few of the parts that are included with the Crown Maroon DC-8 sedan number E-098-RW that is for sale to the right person. More images coming.
  13. Hello Anyone that reads this post, I have been involved with 1930-31 DC-8 and DD-6 cars for going on 42 years now. Over the years I have purchased many cars that were to far gone to bring back and parted them out. I have been able to help a great many people with parts so they could get their DC-8 and DD-6 back on the road. This is just a request for if anyone who knows of a DC-8 parts car please contact me, hopefully with pictures. It is getting harder and harder to help these folks find the parts that they seek. If you know of any parts cars please contact me thru the AACA mail system. Thank you!
  14. Hello Dodge Brothers, All joking aside, this car needs to find a good home. I am currently restoring a DC roadster and when that car is done I hope to start on my 1931 DC Standard Eight convertible coupe. I am as some of you know working on a book zeroed in on just the DC-8, DD-6, DF-6 Taxi and the DE-6. I'll be very lucky if I finish both cars and the book before I head off to the big Dodge Brothers Dealership in the sky. I truly need to sell this Crown Maroon & Black DC-8 sedan to fund a building project that I must get finished. Please spread the word and help me find this car a good home! It deserves it !!!!! Thank you for reading this update.
