  1. This Spohn Custom based on a Chrysler remains unknown to this day and I agree, it was likely not repaired after the fender bender. There is a '55 Dodge tail in the frontal photo so assuming this is a body shop, the time frame is likely late '50s. I have the '52 Spohn Palos in restoration.
  2. "Southampton" references hardtop body styles whether 2 or 4 door. No pillared sedan can be a Southampton. Every pillarless enclosed car is a Southampton.
  3. Well, I'm happy for you to have figured our your '33 Essex-Terraplane Model K (regardless of origin) coupe. Good looking little hot rod there and I hope you enjoy the heck out of it. There is still a forum for Terraplane owners on Facebook called "Terraplane SEVEN". I founded and administered it until I left Facebook. But point is ALL Terraplanes, whether factory stock or hot rodded were welcome there. You'll get a lot more there than from the "club" which never responded to you. Have fun.
  4. Just curious. Anyone here purchase the gray wagon mentioned up in the NW on Craigslist? I've found another and am trying to get in touch with the owner. Thanks!
  5. Post question in the AMC forum. Its an AMC axle.
  6. I just slowly and carefully hold rubber busings up to the side the the wheel on my bench grinder and take off whatever little bit is needed.
  7. Sorry, I've been ill with Fauci flu; hit very hard. Just an acquaintance and i've had no further contact. Sorry I no longer recall his name even. Sorry truly.
  8. Wheel width is measured inside the bead seating area. Not outside overall width.
  9. This is my '35 Dodge model DU rack. Entire car is original, untouched.
  10. A fellow member is "sure" he has one but hasn't found it. Been very reliable over the years. When he does I'll post but until then leaving the door open here. Thanks 32plywood.
  11. Try Browne Auto Salvage, Sunset, TX. They had a couple of these early steel wagons as I recall when I was there.
  12. My '56 Dodge Coronet Royal Lancer has a BAD torque converter. Apparently it was built/welded off center when new or improperly rebuilt. Its junk. Looking to buy a used original that I can have my shop rebuild or if you have one by a reputable builder, that would be great too. '55-56 Dodge and Plymouth V8 cars with PowerFlite share this torque converter. THANKS !
  13. Just for your info, the '35 Dodge DU convertibles came standard with the tinted plastic visors which are totally dissimilar to what you are looking for.
  14. Probably Jo-Han as they did the 1:25 scale Chrysler products. AMT didn't seem to have a contract with Chrysler.
  15. Thanks, Walt. The '34-35 Custom 8s weren't big sellers in the Depression. There are some 7 window sedans around with this long, 124" wheelbase but not many. The 5-window Brougham bodies (no quarter window) like mine, must have had trouble finding buyers. I'm not aware that any of the '34s C8 Broughams are extant. I believe just 4 or 5 of the '35 version have survived in "assorted" condition. When found in California, it had to come home to Texas. This is the Model HHU, and there was no "Custom" series after this year. Pix As found in storage. Factory photo
  16. Y'all do all know this is a TERRAPLANE 6 and not a Hudson 6, right? Its a very nice car and if the seller will post the VIN, and the wheelbase, we'll know more. The grille insert, hood single wing ornament, hood side venting are all Terraplane. It does have the desirable chromed deep draw Hudson headlights.
  17. Thanks, Its very desirable to have all the glass back in the car! Glass riser and vent window assembly in the drivers door. And those Hudson "disappearing vents" work flawlessly with new rubber now. And putting some colour back on the car (close to original on this car by samples found) sure helps too. A pair of quite nice original horns was a fine find on eBay. Chroming pieces in great need and some proper argent paint back on the grille insert and the hood venting helped too. Do have a repro crank hole cover (not shown) now. Hardest thing to come by was stainless trim missing on the grille shell edge when I purchased the car. Oh and one of the deluxe wing trim stampings on the inside window trims had to be sourced from Australia. And that's why we call this a hobby, right?
  18. If someone buys this car and wants factory literature, I have a bunch of it that I want out of my office shelves. Sales to shop TSBs. I won't hold you up.
  19. Just for smiles... and to see if anyone else owns a '34 or '35 Custom 8 Brougham (no quarter windows).
