    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    Well maybe not if I was in that market, but you will note I'm looking for a grade 3-4 automobile not a fully restored piece........(Translation: If I was that wealthy I would certainly bid on one!)

    Regarding 1929 Chrysler Model 75's

    Just got a new reprint of the 1929 Chrysler Model 75 owners manual from down under. Couldn't find a used one from any of the HMN dealers or on Ebay for a long time.

    Regarding 1929 Chrysler Model 75's

    On a more basic note, would the serial number of the vehicle or motor tell if it was of domestic origin?
  4. So I have to admit my ignorance on the topic. I need to familiarize myself with this automobile and having been a Ford man for a long time my experience is there. Are there differences between Canadian and domestically produced cars? What about export models besides the obvious right hand steering in countries where that is the norm? Is this information somewhere easily to be found?

    Thank you RICHELIEUMOTOR, but no I'm not really interested in tackling a full restoration at this point. I will continue my quest.....

    I was approached by someone who claimed there were several of these available in Australia, I would think that the gentleman from there should have his pick. Besides he is not really interested in a Model 75 exclusively. Unfortunate for me, I know nothing about the differences between export and domestic models, even Canadian to US differences puzzle me. Any place where those details could be made clearer because I must become more familiar with my prey!

    Partially correct, the third photo of a yellow roadster with black fenders and wire wheels is a Model 75.

    Keep the grenades. I know that somewhere there is one or more of these cars which could be purchased if the right person sees my request.

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    Hi 1926johnboy, No thank you, I've been looking for a while and I will continue to do so......
  11. Xander, you are a hoot!
  12. Hi guys, thank you mike6024 for posting the youtube film. It is a beautiful car but it is completely restored to show condition , that is why I've posted the condition of the car I'm looking to find as a grade 3. Oh and Bob, just so you know I have not been sitting around doing nothing regarding the search. I always look to other hobbyists for tips on how to improve my style. It probably will be more difficult to find one in an anything less than restored condition.....
  13. Hey Xander, I called Ross but they have not returned my call, could be BS?
  14. Thank you for your interest John but I'm going to hang tough on this. Again I do appreciate your input.
  15. So here I am still looking for that elusive 1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster and a thought came to mind. What methods of search yield the best results? Car Wanted ad in Hemmings, online collector car for sale sites, Ebay, Craigslist or the enlistment of an "agent" of some sort who does the search work for a living? I'm interested in finding out how you fellow hobbyists have successfully found a not so common automobile, what has worked and what has not. Please advise.
