    Less likely, perhaps, but I 've seen ground cables look perfect, but still have internal resistance in them. Do any of the cables feel warm, or even hot, after cranking for a bit? Your '37 looks gorgeous! I love that color and I love the flat back body.
  2. Here's a link to a Humpback panel for sale in Wisconsin. It's pricey, but I thought I'd mention it because it hasn't been cut up yet: https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/dodge-panel-truck-delivery/6374503320.html

    Thank you for that. Any day that I have to go the dictionary to learn a new word is a good day.

    I guess that without more information about your Brewster's last paint job, you can only speculate. If I had to guess, I'd say some prior owner thought that a limo, even a short one, should be black. He may not have understood or appreciated the significance of the original blue color. In my experience, I have found that these sorts of mid range blues often look best with the addition of some navy or white to set them off. The French Blue airliner is a good example of that. On their own they can be less attractive to some people. Beyond that, though, I have to say that your car clearly is French Blue and the first owner was a French opera star. The possibility that is just a coincidence is just too great. I'd say that the last person to paint the car it's present color must have found some evidence of it's original color and choose to restore it to that. I, for one, am glad he did. To me it's surely a part of the unique car's pedigree. James Sheehan

    Yeah, I guess that would be my take on it, too. He clearly wants to not be held accountable for selling it. I'm glad it's not of much value.

    Craig (8E45E), thank you so much for dusting off my memory. I actually think that I meant to say Railton, but Brough Superior came to my mind first. Actually, I don't think that they built all that many Brough autos.

    Nice work, Grimy!

    I'll bet the guy found a "P" on something in the car and settled for "Plymouth." Maybe he forgot about Pontiac.
  9. Here's a link to a C/L ad for a '37 or '38 Plymouth for sale in Ottawa, Kansas. Does anything strike you as strange about this Plymouth?: https://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/d/plymouth-sedan-ratrod-project/6367781029.html (Sorry, but I can't get a picture to copy here.)
  10. Here's a link to a C/L ad for a '32 Buick for sale in Festus, MO. Do you see any problems with it? https://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/d/1932-coupe-obo/6378220059.html
  11. Here's a link to a C/L ad for a '40 Windsor for sale in Kearney, NE. The ad calls it a '39. We all know that's incorrect. Take a look at the ad and see if you can find anything else wrong: https://grandisland.craigslist.org/cto/d/39-chrysler-windsor-rear/6325910112.html

    The Hudson chassis found some popularity in England about the same time as this Brewster. The famous motorcycle maker Brough Superior (the Rolls Royce of motorcycles) marketed them with custom English bodywork. The Hudson Terraplane eight was faster than Ford (ask John Dillinger) and their chassis was superior in all ways. I wonder if any Brewsters were built on Hudson chassis? http://www.broughsuperiorcar.co.uk/the cars.htm

    I don't know the origin of it, but I just recalled that there was a "Brewster Green" color that I would come across from time to time. I'm not saying that it had anything to do with the car manufacturer, but if you enter "Brewster Green" into Google Images, you'll see the color on both Model As and much newer cars.

    Having spent a good deal of my life in the apparel business, my first thought upon seeing your Brewster was "French Blue". There's no question in my mind that this was what Miss Pons intended. If you go to Google Images and enter "French blue", you'll see many different interpretations of the color. It was always the color of their military. This particular mid depth, somewhat grayed blue was an important color to the French, although, surprisingly, it isn't present in the nation's flag.

    I see that we're having the same conversation over in the "Parts for Sale" forum.
