  1. I have looked at the older post with pictures, there is not much pointing towards Chrysler besides hydraulic brakes and tube front axle. No details do correspond with my Series 65 and 75 of 1929 vintage. If there is not any chassis number, most cast items on the chassis will still have a parts number cast into them which will make sense if checked towards a Chrysler Parts Manual. Illustrated is the rear axle marking, but I believe numbers of spring hangers would be the best way to make an ID. And why not check the the wheelbase, that would narrow down the choices a lot.
  2. External brakes would be 28 or earlier. Tube front axle or I-beam? 4 or 6 cylinders, engine number?
  3. I would be interested in the early version. Do you have a picture for comparison?
  4. Two different bases in 1931 and two maybe three different gazelles. The one Kaiser shows is the largest with the two unique features mentioned. Check what No your base has underneath, and we can tell whether it is for your car or if you will need to downsize.
  5. I have a Series 66 speedo which is fair (same size, different font) and might have a repairable Series 65 speedo. Typical S65 dash (not mine) Note this one has a kmh speedo The S66 speedo I have with mph speedo. Very few people can tell the difference
  6. Is that all you got or have you just removed the inner pieces to display the falling apart numbers? If everything else is in place and the speedo works, you will just need some number stickers for the odometer. Several vendors can redo those, not everyone uses high quality glue...
  7. These are leftovers from my two-car restoration: I believe I paid $80 for each saddle plus shipping back in 2009 when Verdone's still was in business, and $75 pr bar from another source. Most of the bars I now have are cast in bronze then machined and chromed afterwards. I had them made in the UK and I believe they are an even better size match than the stainless ones I first bought as we took shrinkage into consideration when making them. All bars have 8 1/2" inch mounting hole spacing, which is different from some of the Mopars in era. I will offer for sale a set with two saddles and two inner (no holes) and two outer bars (with holes, two alternative hole locations your choice) and try to sell that as a package. To recoup my outlay I would require USD 450 for the package, plus shipping (that likely is a lot abroad, I can check). May also be able to arrange for someone to bring with them to the US and ship domestically. I can also sell any of the three aluminum bars to the lower right for USD 25 a piece, they were deemed non-doable by my chroming company. Or USD 60 for the single stainless bar or any of the left-over chromed bars with saddle mounting holes
  8. From the flow of Facebook groups: A CCCA Chrysler as Police interceptor vehicle. Chicago Police chose an 32 Imperial with what looks like bulletproof glass.
  9. You are absolutely correct. Dammann and myself mixed it up and here is the same picture (low resolution) from a period Chrysler leaflet. It was a Kellner Cvt Cp made for King Carol II of Romania:
  10. For those who have forgotten how the Drauz one-off looks like with the top down. Dammann 70 Years:
  11. Much talk about this windshield style seen on a few Imperials and which looks a lot better than the "upright" standard LeBaron version. Isn't it sort of an adapted Auburn windshield - or is it more slanted than the Auburn? I have checked and the Auburn car is 5" narrower (45" vs 50" across cowl) than an Imperial so it is no direct fit.
  12. Here is a zoom of the top rests with saddles at each outer side.
  13. Julio, the saddles goes with the bars that have holes in them and are fastened with a screw from below. Used on the two outer top rest bars. I bought these from Verdones, but question whether they make any sense on a Series 65 and did my second restoration without them. The Series 75 bars I believe are shorter than the Series 65?
  14. I bought one from Jay Astheimer. Pity it turned out the lowering guy could not do tubular axles, so now I probably need an I-beam axle (Series 65 maybe 66) to lower. Anyone?
  15. I have some spares from my 1929 Chrysler series 65 restoration, what length are the ones you seek? Got any picture?
