I am restoring a 1930 Chrysler 70 four door sedan. Is there any in depth restoration reference information out there? Currently trying to figure out how to get the front bench seat out as well as replacing the wood floor. Any help is appreciated!

I have a 1930 Model 70 Brougham that is all original and a 1930 Royal Coupe that is totally restored ( on the front over of Sept. WPC News) I'd be willing to help you with any information that I can. I've been at this for a few years now and have a few contacts.

The photos make the car look unrestorable but it's a very solid car.

There is no in-depth restoration reference for a 1930 Chrysler restoration, for that you need to go for an oh-so-common Ford. However some good correspondance with Tim Wolfe (above) might very well get you along, he does have two very similar cars and is a helpful guy. As for replacing wood on these cars, that is just plain carpenting from measures taken. To my knowledge, no pattern wood parts exist. Best of luck, do upload some more pictures to keep the web-audience alerted.
