  1. six or eight? Does it have fluid drive? Jon jyinger1@gmail.com
  2. I love your '55 St. Regis. It has been converted to a 3-spd Torqueflight transmission? The indicator on the dash looks like the standard 2-spd Powerflight. Anyway, I am interested in this car. Jon jyinger1@gmail.com
  3. Thanks Bob. I copied down your info for the next time I need to make a key. Fortunately, I found my one key. And, since I had just ordered a couple of blanks, I took it to Home Depot to make a copy. No luck. Their fancy-smancy electronic super machine couldn't do it. So, next I took it to WalMart. They also have the fancy-smancy machine, but they also have the simple old system in the auto parts section of the store. Click, click----new key. Easy-peasy. And free, since I supplied the blank. Thanks again for your response! Jon
  4. Any trick to getting the IGN switch out?
  5. I lost my only key to my '52 Chrysler Imperial. How do I go about getting a new key made? Thanks Jon jyinger1@gmail.com
  6. I have a "new" 1942 DeSoto. It has the simplimatic---fluid drive with the 4-speed semi-automatic transmission. It also has over-drive (!!). Does anyone else out there have this unusual combination? Could you have ordered this from the factory in the 1940s?
  7. Can someone tell me: Will the rear leaf springs from a sedan work on a convertible? My project is a 1951 Chrysler Imperial Thanks Jon jyinger1@gmail.com
  8. I would like to buy them. Can you send my a couple of photos? Jon jyinger1@gmail.com
  9. Keith, you are very lucky to have the Fluid Torque transmission--which features a true torque converter, not just a fluid coupling. It was an option on Chryslers only in 1952 and 1953. I wonder if Terry's car has that option? If so, his gear indicator will say Fluid Torque; if not, it will say Fluid Matic.
  10. Five years later----does anyone have a list of '42 owners? I have three, by the way.
  11. Thanks Rusty. Desert Valley Auto Salvage has two rear springs on their way to us; they said that all of the 1951 Chrysler Imperial springs are the same. So we'll see......
  12. Thanks Rusty. The last guy who owned the car had most of the parts in boxes. There were no rear springs. Three extra instrument clusters, though. I'm guessing that most of the Imperials of that vintage use the same rear springs. I guess we'll know for sure when I get replacement springs and install them. I have a photo here of the chassis as she now sits..... You may see rear springs, but they are not right for this car.

  14. Where can I find a 1956 Chrysler 354 hemi water pump rebuild kit? Bernbaum doesn't have them, Kanter doesn't have them Help Jon Yinger jyinger1@gmail.com
