  1. Here's a link to a C/L ad for a running '48 DeSoto 2 door sedan for sale in Dubuque, IA: https://dubuque.craigslist.org/cto/d/dubuque-1948-desoto-2-door-sedan/7201315529.html
  2. Some Nash "speed" parts on C/L, Rapid City, SD: https://lacrosse.craigslist.org/pts/d/rapid-city-1951-nash-car-parts-manifold/7187575070.html
  3. The wheelbase on this Ambassador is 121 1/4". I looks longer though, doesn't it?
  4. Again, I'm out of my depth, but I thought that we "etched" bare metal with acid to give it the necessary "tooth" . I'm sorry. I really don't have enough experience to be in this conversation, though.
  5. George, I don't pretend to know much about these matters, but I might have thought that primers would require more "tooth" to adhere to than a 1600 finish. Are you talking about primers with some sort of bonding agent?
  6. Without putting a lot of research into the subject, it appears that Ford continued this low production (or maybe it should be low sales) Club Coupe into '38. Ford would have still offered coupes in the Standard and DeLuxe lines for both of these years, so I don't imagine that the total number of these Club Coupes built contributed much to overall sales. You can bet that they never recovered their retooling costs on this venture. 1939 would see the return to the one conventional coupe body, but offering opera seats as an option. The new, for '39, Mercury offered Hayes coupe bodies for those who
  7. Your thoughts seem more likely than mine. Someone from our prize department in Medford, OR will be contacting you shortly.
  8. '37 Ford Club Coupe. Squeezing a back seat in sure screwed with the proportions, didn't it?:
  9. It's hard for me to tell from the angles which these photographs were taken, but if that deck is as short as it appears to be, this may be the far less common model with a rear seat -- a club coupe.
  10. I googled the subject and got a couple of responses: Always remember Google is your friend. https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=-7JvX73vDdrKtQal7bbwCA&q=how+to+make+an+under+running+board+antenna&oq=how+to+make+an+under+running+board+ant&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQARgBMgUIIRCgATIFCCEQoAEyBQghEKABOg4ILhCxAxDHARCjAhCTAjoICAAQsQMQgwE6CAguEMcBEKMCOgsILhCxAxDHARCjAjoCCC46CAguELEDEIMBOgUIABCxAzoCCAA6BQguELEDOgYIABAWEB46CAghEBYQHRAeOgcIIRAKEKABOgUIIRCrAlCkCliU4wFg8_sBaAFwAHgAgAH8AYgB6BeSAQYzNy4wLjKYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6&sclient=psy-ab
  11. Well, there's a question. I suppose it could reach fifteen if the right guy was interested. This time of year and being where it's located, it might not go much beyond eleven. I'm not the "right guy", myself. It's an eight, which I like, but no overdrive and being this time of year and being well into Montana, I guess I just don't see it for myself. If it were the more deluxe "Country Club" model, I know that I'd really have to pursue it. I will say, though, that I like the interior and I rarely ever like modern fabrics in vintage cars.The Counrty Clubs came on 126" wheelbases, while the one o
  12. Bryan, I have to laugh that you mention those Mecum (etc) characters. I see them too and am always amazed. I'm so glad that they travel in their lanes and we in ours. I don't relate to their interests and they don't much interfere with ours. If they did, we could never compete.
  13. This one has been calling my name, so I contacted the seller. I have to report, unfortunately, there's no overdrive in this beauty.
  14. Wow, Dan, welcome to the real world. Also, in this one photo I see a gap I don't like between the hood and the driver's door. Likewise the gas cap door. Without seeing any more It appears like a car that has been rushed to market.
