1938 Plymouth bumper guards

Recommended Posts

Al, I just dug through all my stuff, thought I might have had a couple but I was mistaken. I have an extra front bumper and 3 or 4 bumper brackets if you need them.

Hi Al,

I should have some in my inventory. Send me a PM with your parts lists and I'll see what I have. Sending a couple pics of my 2 owner original paint and interior "garage find" 38 Plymouth coupe.

dpcdfan,

                   Could you please share a picture of the area just above the windshield where the wiper switches are? I am reassembling my '38 coupe and having a little difficulty with this bit.

Thanks, Greg

Above the windshield on the outside is just the 2 splined shafts to attach the wiper arms.

on the inside all I can see is head liner.

i was wondering how to repair or service the wiper Mechanism.

ill post pictures when I get home.

Greg this probably won’t help you but it kind of opened my eyes.

This car came with the headliner covering any internal wiper stuff that’s suppose to be there.

I can feel it and see that there is something under the material but no clue as to what.

if you have photos of yours I’d like to take a look.

Thanks Al. Mine is currently unfinished so I don't know what it's supposed to look like. I know the motor fits here, but I can't seem to find an image of the correctly assembled product. I mean, is there just a small escutcheon behind the on/off switch similar to a door lock knob escutcheon from the 60's/70'S that covers the hole in the headliner?

Yes sir, I haven’t come to that part of the puzzle yet...

this is my first Mopar product..

chevrolet has been my back ground... 39s sedans and coupes, a couple of 38 chevys.

did a lot of 47-53 Chevy pickups and panel’s as well.

im enjoying this project a lot.

ive read that people are very found of the 37 Plymouth.. I prefer the 38.

I think the 38 grille makes a world of difference.

mine does have the offset headlight  stanchions making the headlights lower..I take no credit for that, they came with the car😎😎 enjoy your project. Al

Hey Gene, if you're in the neighborhood, my wife and I own the Palm Canyon Roadhouse on the south end of the strip downtown (Palm Canyon Drive at Ramon RD.) drop by, I'll buy you a drink and we can trade war stories! I'm usually there evenings.

Thanks Gregg for the offer.  I seldom drink anything alcoholic, and we are so tied up with the many activities At Rancho Casa Blanca Resort, friday evenings with friends for dinner is it.

Maybe bump into you at Dr George car show.
