  1. Part # 647215 for 1936 Plymouth Dodge DeSoto and Chrysler 6 cylinder cars. Some references say it fits '32-'36. Has surface rust as shown in pictures. $12.00 postpaid in USA. PayPal is fine. Thanks for looking! Harold
  2. 70's Chrysler Daily Driver?

    Not full-size by 1970's standards, but definitely full size today.....1971-1977 B-bodies (Coronet/ Charger/Satellite/Cordoba). Better fuel economy than full-size models (aka C-bodies). Fairly bulletproof mechanically (the 4-doors were the darlings of the taxi and police markets) and roomy. A well-equipped four-door or station wagon is much less expensive than a two-door version, and can be bought reasonably if you take the time to search. As with most cars, rust is the enemy so a western or southern car would be a better bet. Personally, I'd like a stick-shift Aspen or Volare, any body style as long as it's reasonably priced. Still kick myself for not buying one new....
  3. I've had this tow bar for a number of years and want to sell it because I don't anticipate using it. It's a 'BraKing' bumper-to-bumper tow bar made by Gross-Given, probably in the late 1950's to early 1960's. According to the paperwork, you can hook up a cable to pull down the brake pedal of the towed car. I see tow bars priced all over the place and would appreciate thoughts on what a realistic advertising price would be. Thanks for your thoughts. Harold
  4. Here's a nice used (or maybe even NORS) 2-1/2" diameter glass taillight lens marked #329 for 1939 Chevrolet, 1937-1938 Oldsmobile, and 1939 Pontiac. $12.00 postpaid in the lower 48 States. Thanks for looking! Harold

  6. Vintage Tow Bar----What's It Worth?

    Van conversion places are also a great source for the wall-to-wall rubber matting they pull out before they add carpeting. You can cut them down to fit smaller cars.
  7. Vintage Tow Bar----What's It Worth?

    My wife is amazed at some of the things I've sold...sometimes I am, too. The extra lunch money doesn't hurt!
  8. Vintage Tow Bar----What's It Worth?

    I listed it on eBay for local pickup only and some guy from Buffalo wanted it badly. My son was attending RIT and brought the tow bar up after spring break; they met at Batavia Downs and that was that.
  9. Vintage Tow Bar----What's It Worth?

    This is a very old thread. It's been gone for several years.
  10. It's time for my Plymouth Bulletin magazines to find a new home. I've got most issues from # 140 (May/June 1983) to the present. Nearly all of them are in excellent condition, with a few having some wrinkles or shipping damage courtesy of the Post Office. I can fit 30 issues comfortably into a USPS Flat-Rate box. Send me a list and I'll include the ones you want if I have them. $20.00 per box, plus $13.65 for shipping (total $33.65). That works out to $1.12 each including postage, a great deal by anyone's standard!
  11. 89 Crown vic or Grand Marquis wanted

    Have you tried posting on crownvic.net ?
  12. Funny car stories

    I was the assistant service manager at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership in the late 1980's. One of our customers was an elderly woman who came in one day complaining that the horn blew when she was making turns. It turns out that she injured herself and had a cast on her wrist that would catch the horn button whenever she made a turn.
  13. If I only could do it all over again

    I had a similar experience years ago. When I was selling new Fords in the 1980's, a woman came in with a '76 Granada to trade. The odometer read 14,000 miles and the interior was excellent, but it sat under a tree and the white paint looked gray due to the sap and moss stains. The used car manager took one look and figured 115K on the clock, and valued it accordingly. I bought the Granada for my girlfriend at the time; it ran really well for her until she killed the engine. The former owner later told me it really was a low mileage car.
  14. You should post this on the P15-D24 website. I'd bet lots of members there would contribute as well.
  15. Gas tank

    Does Rock Auto list fuel tanks for your truck? If they do, there is usually a picture to go along with it (under the 'more info' pushbutton for the part) which may help. Harold
  16. 1971 Ford Trailer Hitch

    This is a Draw Tite 2000 lb hitch for a 1971 Ford. I can't find a model number on it but it should fit full-size '71 Fords and possibly Torino wagons. The other models have a painted metal panel under the rear bumper and this doesn't look like it would work with one. I've had this hitch many years and it's very solid in spite of the surface rust. $20.00 picked-up in/near Freehold, NJ. If you need shipping, let me know your zip code and I'll figure it out. Thanks for looking,Harold

    Still gathering dust in my garage.

  19. Locking wheel cover key that should fit Ford and Mercury cars. Probably from the 1980's. It has orange and white color-coded identification stripes. The design on the inside of the key needs to match the design on the wheel cover locking screw for it to work. I couldn't find any marks or numbers on it. Nice condition as shown. $18.00 postpaid in USA. PayPal is fine. Thanks for looking! Harold
  20. NORS KW brand (by BMC) FA-30 voltage regulator for Ford products 1963-78, AMC 1976-1979, and Pantera 1971-1974. It has the same applications as the Standard Motor Products VR-613. The box is somewhat shelf worn but the regulator looks like new. I bought this part many years ago and never used it. $17.00 postpaid in the lower 48 States. PayPal is fine. Harold
