    1963 Galaxie XL

    Sorry, I should have put the year in. It is a 1963 Galaxie 500 XL convertible. Thanks
  2. Hello all. I am in need of at least one original wheel for my XL convertible. What is the width for the original 14 inch rim and does anyone know where I might find one in Arizona? Getting ready to start the restoration on my car and want to locate and obtain the parts I know I am missing before I get started. Thanks for any help.

    Jim and Keiser have helped a lot of Dodge owners, myself included. I too want to thank both of them again.

    Dodge Bros keys

    Several years ago, I had keys made for the ignition of my 1930 DC 8 by a lock and key shop. I took the coil with the switch in it to the shop and the next day I had two new keys that worked perfectly. You might try calling around to locksmiths and see if there is one that can help.

    Identify what from

    I have a 1936 Dodge and it has covers that look a lot like yours and are actually two piece and hinge open to put the spare in or take it out of the cover. Kind of a clam shell style. Do these open like that or are they just the single piece?
  7. It's not just Hershey, it seems to be a good share of the old car hobby is gone. I drove about 2000 miles - that's right, two thousand miles - ONE WAY - to go to Hershey this year with my wife. We had not been there for 26 years but finally found ourselves without kids at home to raise so we decided to get back to the car hobby. We started walking the first day, looking at the vendor items and found, like many others, too many empty spaces or too many vehicle's just parked and it made for a LOT of wasted walking. I found a few parts that I would have bought if it were not for the high prices. It would be impossible to "restore" an old car that was built for the working man (Dodge, Chevy, Plymouth and so on) and still be able to eat. Perhaps it HAS become a rich mans game now. Too bad as there are a lot of good old cars waiting for the average working person to fix up and enjoy - but, the average working person can not afford to pay $100.00 + dollars for a single tail light lens for an average, lower priced car. I also experienced a couple of vendors that were less than friendly. They ask me to make an offer and what I felt was a fair price was evidently way to low in their view so they made it a point to let me know they were not going to even talk to me. Why ask, then get mad about it?? My wife and I were excited about getting back into the meets, but after my experience this year at Hershey, I will stick to E-Bay, the forums and local swap meets where there are still people that want to see these old cars back on the road and to help people get them there. No more BIG meets for me.
  8. Does anyone have a picture of the original side mount locks for the 1936 Dodge? I am still looking for them to complete my side mount set up. I would love to even have a good picture of the right ones so I know what I am looking for. Thanks

    1935 Chrysler Coupe Airstream Rumble Seat.

    I have the 1935 CZ DeLuxe 4 dr and a 1936 Dodge RS cp and this would sure look nice sitting with them. I too have found myself with more projects than I will ever get to finish but had I found a car like this one while I was still young, I would most likely tried to ad it to my collection of projects. Love the looks of the 1935 Chrysler Airstream.

    Tight Lug Nut

    I had this problem once and instead of banging my head on the wall, I took the car to Discount Tire and had them rotate my tires. Guess what, my problem became theirs but they got the lug nut off while I was enjoying a coffee. Thanks Discount Tire.
  11. My 1930 Dodge DC8 has an adjustable front seat. There is a wing knob in the center and just below the front of the seat and turning it will move the seat forward or back.

    Wanted: 1936 DB spare tire flange

    These side mount parts are getting harder and harder to find. I am missing one original clam shell tire cover to complete a set of dual side mounts. I will keep my eyes open for one for you. Do you have a single or dual side mounts for yours? Bob

    OD and flat 8s

    The "straight eight" was offered in Dodge starting in 1930 and was only used or offered for four years - 1930, 1931, 1932 and 1933. From 1934 on there were no eights offered in the Dodge until the V-8 in the 1950's. Not sure exact year they started with a V8.

    One MORE Reminder...HERSHEY!!!

    My wife and I are going to be driving to Hershey to look for anything of interest in the way of parts. We went in 1991 and have finally found a way to go again LOL.

    1936 Dodge dash

    Does anybody know where one can get the dash transfers for the gold lines for the '36 D2 dash? There used to be a place that sold a kit but I can't find the info anymore. Thanks E-Mail OTD86866@aol.com

    Best Muscle car from 1963-1971 ERA

    WOW, there are a ton of cool cars from those years and those were the cars I grew up with. I too am a MOPAR fan, but I do have a rather cool 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL convertible that has a lot of the goodies (power windows, factory air, power drivers bucket seat, power steering and a few other extras) that I would love to get all fixed up and put it back on the road. With a stock 390 4V, it will still get down the road rather well.

    36 Dodge headlamp quetion.

    Many years ago, I had sealed beam conversions in my 1936 Dodge and these served as parking lights. The small window below the bulb would let the light from it shine through the sealed beam headlight and give a glow for parking lights.

    Wrecking yards

    My wife and I will be traveling next week and while on the road, we would like to stop at wrecking yards that are along the way. If anyone knows of any good wrecking yards - that have cars from 1930 to 1963 - that are in or near Farmington, NM, Cortez, NM, Montrose, CO, and Grand Junction, CO - I would sure like to know about them so I can stop in for a look at what they have. Thanks in advance for any information. I have MOPARs from 1930 to 1967 and one lonely 1963 Ford Galaxie and enjoy looking for parts as we travel. Bob

    Wrecking yards

    Thanks for the tips on yards. I live in Arizona and we used to have some really great yards here but a lot of them shut down as they were either forced out of the expanding city or as the owners passed and the family didn't want to take over. I have been chasing cars and parts for just over 50 years and still love just walking through them even if I don't find anything I need. When we still had a couple of very young kids, we would always sit down with a map, plan a vacation then search for wrecking yards that were within an hour or so driving distance from any road we were going to travel. Saw a lot of neat cars and met a lot of great people. This time, we will be driving from Northeastern AZ with a destination of Montrose CO. Exact route is not set in stone, so can be altered for salvage yard stops. Thanks again. Bob

    Wrecking yards

    Terry, My wife and I would go junk yard hopping when we were in our teens and still just dating. Not many girls were lucky enough to have a boyfriend that would take them to junk yards and we even celebrated her 21 st birthday junkyard hopping LOL. She loves the old cars too and always has. Bob
  21. Looking for the vertical stainless trim strip for the center of the grille for a 1935 Chrysler CZ. Any help is appreciated.

    Chrysler airstream 1935

    Keiser, This photo you put on is of the DeLuxe CZ8. Note the winged 8 on the side of the hood, the number 8 on the hubcaps, the "fancy" running boards and the headlights mounted on the grill shell and not on the cat walks of the fenders. Also, the horns mount on the fenders on their own trim and there are fender lights on top of the fenders. These are all present on the CZ DeLuxe but I don't think any other model of the Airstream had these features. I have seen some pictures of export Airstreams and they had a different set of trim than the US ones. Not knowing for sure, which Andersson has, makes it hard to know how to help him. I do wish him luck as some of these Airstream trim parts are really hard to find.

    Chrysler airstream 1935

    If your car is an export, it could be different than the US version. Also, there were CZ's and there also was a CZ DeLuxe (in the USA). If you have any pictures of the car itself, it could make it a lot easier to find what you need. I have a CZ DeLuxe and some of the trim is different than the CZ. Actually, there were several differences between the two US models.
  24. Looking for photos of the 1930 Dodge 8 Marathon car. I am trying to put together as complete a set of photos as possible for a research project of mine. Original or nice reprints preferred. Might be interested in any other photos of 1930 / 1931 Dodge DC 8. Contact Bob OTD86866@aol.com
  25. Hi David, still no new photos yet but I am still looking. Stooy, I think I still have them on an external drive, but if you have them handy I would certainly accept a copy again. Thanks, Bob
