  1. Three years from now you'll have eight guys show up wanting these parts. It always seems to work that way. I have a 32 Dodge Brothers, but I'd be all over these if I had a 40 Chrysler.
  2. DeSoto VIN

    Some states title the car the year it was purchased. My 1932 Dodge Brothers DL was built in January of 1931.

    I was going to use brass tubing. Where did you get the poly?
  4. It's always good to check things out when you have the chance. Very little crud in there, but plenty of peace of mind. Looking great!

    Rear bumper on. Baby Duesenberg!

    If the cylinders are step bored (I think I misunderstood your post and thought you had different sized cylinders on each wheel) with two different diameters in one cylinder, then they are incorrect for your car and are after market items.
  7. Get a pressure washer in there - you'll be amazed at the crud that will come out. I took the casting/freeze plugs out of my 48 Plymouth flathead six. I thought the water passages looked pretty good - until the pressure washer blew out two pounds of rust and crud. 😳

    Should be the same for both on the front, same for the rear.

    Are the cylinder bores any good? They are usually pitted or scored. I went through this with my 32 Dodge Brothers DL. Several suppliers advertised new wheel cylinders, but none were correct. I discovered the front cylinders are different from the rear. I gave up and had mine resleeved, keeping the original cylinders. The rubber and cups are standard sizes and can be ordered from most parts suppliers.

    Nothing very spectacular today, just more assembly. I got the bumper brackets back from the powdercoater yesterday and they look great. I had him do the luggage rack, too, and I'm very happy with the way it came out. I got the front bumper brackets on with no problem, but, as it always seems to be the case, I discovered that I had forgotten about the two pieces that attach the chrome bumpers to the brackets in the center. I should have had them powdercoated with the other parts, so I still need to clean and paint them before I can get things back together. Luckily, they are behind the bumper and don't really show. So, I'm stuck at the moment with this much done, Since this is a sidemount car, the rear bumper is not split, but one single piece. You can see the bracket in this shot to the right of the luggage rack. My wife is at the high school helping my daughter at the concession stand, and It's a two man (or woman) job to get the luggage rack on without scratching the paint, so that will also have to wait until later today. The bumpers are rechromed and ready to go, so it's frustrating when I run into these minor roadblocks.

    Just keeps getting better.
  12. Backfires

    Is your coil overheating as the car warms up?
  13. Great air cleaner seal

    There is a closeup of the product information in the original post. The label gives the product and part number.
  14. 1964 Plymouth Valiant signet 200 convertible

    Pennsylvania license plate - but it's a big state.
  15. Outstanding Artwork

    I just discovered the work of Martin Lewis, an Australian born artist that worked mostly in New York in the twenties and thirties. Any antique car buff should like these magnificent etchings that really capture the feel of the period. Mr. Lewis passed away in 1962 and is virtually forgotten today.
