  1. Hi Carl, Thanks!! You can not see, but there is already a sidemount fender on the right. What do you mean with more open, more "race" lines? Certainly interested in this look. Grtz, P.
  2. After having searched for several months for 'The right car for Peking to Paris 2019 rally', we have found our car! A 1933 Dodge 6 convertible. Why this car? Mopar was the right choice we decided after all information we received on this forum. Thanks to all enthousiast for the tips and leads! Bernard (co-pilot) and I have enjoyed the pimped W200 Dodge Pick-Up we both had 25 years ago. Since than Dodge remained in our heart. Open prewar car with the looks we wanted High ground clearance 4 leafspring suspension Reliable, bigger 231 flathead 6 'torque' engine Succesfully participated the Peking to Paris 2007 Etc My first questions, others will probably follow. What is the exact type and model name of this car? (E.g. there is roadster, convertible and drophead coupe?) Where can I found a left front fender with wheel well? (we want 2 spares) The 3 speed gearbox in not in good shape. Which original, later model gearbox we easily can bolt to our engine? Where to find? Who can repair the fuelgauge in our instrument panel? Where can we find the 'modern material' parts to overhaul our engine? To optimalise its performance to the max without touching its legendary reliability. Who can help us with information and parts to prepare the front and rear axle for the tough circumstance in the mongolian desert, etc..? (car my not change look!) Thanks in advance for all help! Kind regards, Patrick Motorist Mechanic

  4. Ray Jones was ill for some time and has sadly passed away 8 months ago. I want to buy a Chrysler 72 or 75 roadster, willing to pay the right price for it. My ultimate dream is one to drive MM and LeM with, and to (slightly) modificate a second for doing Peking to Paris 2019 where I have registred for. I fell in love with this car after having seen David E.'s beautifull 75 Roadster in the MM. Unfortunately he sold it last year and I didn't knew it. He has now a georgous 72. But I is not evident to find one. Does somebody know where I can find one? I found those 2 but I get no answer on my emails. Probably not interested in selling overseas? http://topclassiccarsforsale.com/chrysler/53473-1929-chrysler-75-roadster-stunning-condition-aaca-winner.html http://topclassiccarsforsale.com/chrysler/107886-1929-chrysler-model-75.html Or maybe is one of you interested in selling and so give it a very passionate future? Thanks in advance for your answers. I really hope I can soon join your 7' club !
  5. Thanks! The one with te chassis and parts is missing a lot they told me and to difficult for me. I have no experience with wood. Seems to be very difficult and expensive. The second I want to buy but i do not get an answer on my e-mails. If I phone, the man says it's a wrong number. May be he doesn't want to sell to me? Would you be so kind to try to contact him? regards, Patrick
  6. Interesting story. Do you have, or can you get the Carter 420s ? Thanks in advance, Patrick
  7. Thanks Jon for your quick reply. For the moment I want to keep it all Plymouth. Can you deliver me a Carter 439s and at what price? Regards, Patrick
  8. Who can help me please with a good carburetor for my just bought 1937 Plymouth P4? A carb repairset (C6F5 - from Bernbaum) did not help and they can not help me with another one. Here in Europe nobody can help me also. Thanks in advance, Patrick
  9. Indeed, but I do not find this. So help! If it would be perfectly restored for events as MM or LeM, I would not modifie it and trie to participate with it at these events. If it would need some work, I would modifie it for P2P.
  10. Hi, it has to be a 72 or 75 roadster
  11. The Dodge owner told me that the only weak point on his car was indeed the gearbox. He has 'hurted' it when pulling another car in Mongolia, but the gearbox did hold it to the end. Afterwards he has put a younger three speed in it. The electric overdrive that was in the car for P2P seemed to be useless to him, so he took it out. Paul Curtis has an adapter kit to put a T5 from Mustang or Chevrolet in it.
  12. Hi to all, after having posted a search on the General Discussion Forum I learned a lot about American prewar cars, and I ended up with the conclusion I has to be a Chrysler product. Can somebody help me to find a 1928 or 1929 Chrysler 72 or 75 roadster? This is finally our most prefered choice, because it is also eligible for Mille Miglia and Le Mans Classic here in Europe. Alternatively, next week I'm going to see a 1933 Dodge 6 convertible, which succesfully participated already in the Peking to Paris. Can somebody tells me where I can find more specifications about this car? Weight, engine power, endurance and speed performence, etc compared to the Chrysler 72 or 75. I only know Classiccardatabase.com and there is not much on it. Thanks in advance, regards.
