  1. Where are you located? I do not have any samples of the wood. I have collected a few pictures. I basically want to be able to put the top up and down, This is not a restoration more of a home built. My biggest concern is the front header bow. I have a set of hold downs and a new set of irons. If you can give me a ballpark estimate it would help. I've been laid off for Covid since March but I want to get this top done. Bow connection at the rear.
  2. I would also accept an old rotted piece that I can make a pattern from.
  3. I am looking for roadster top wood patterns or useable pieces for my 28 series 72. I do not have any wood to make patterns from. I understand some patterns were available from the Chrysler Museum but they said they no longer have that service. I've been looking for several years. Any recommendation of who has made or can make my bows will be appreciated. The picture attached is the type of hold down my top uses. The wood is not mine.
  4. Does anyone have contact information for Marty Lum? What are the prices for a pair for a 28 Chrysler 72 roadster?
  5. Did anyone ever come up with patterns or a maker for a 28 Chrysler 72 roadster? I have a new set of irons but none of the wood for patterns.
  6. I have a 28 Chrysler roadster that came with a perfect set of top irons but no wood pieces. I need at the least a header bow for the top of the windshield. Other bows would be nice too but the header is the most important. Does anyone have a set of plans they can share or know of someone that has made one? I've had no luck locally. Thanks.
  7. Can you take some detail pictures of the front header bow. I have irons but no wood and need to make one. Thanks.
  8. Can you post some detailed pictures of the wood top header that fits on top of the windshield? I have the irons for my top but no wood. I can't even make a pattern. Thanks in advance.
  9. I do not have the originals. I have a new set of stainless irons but nothing on the bows.
  10. I have a friend restoring a 34 Plymouth PF convertible coupe. There appears to have been some sort of panel under the area where the top folds down just behind the seat. Do any of you have a picture of this piece? Its been chopped out and we have no idea how it looked. Also at the rear of the door bottom opening their appears to have been a structure of some type welded on the floor pan. Also cut out and missing. Any help appreciated.
  11. Is Snyders the model A and T store or is there another for Chryslers? I need the bows for a 1928 Chrysler 72 roadster. I have the top irons but no bows for patterns. A pattern would be great!
  12. A friend sent me these pictures wanting to know what type of car it was. No front end pictures. I thought this site would be the place to find it. Thanks in advance.
  13. I will be going to Bonneville Speed Week and am looking for a job to bring back. I'm pulling a 26' enclosed trailer and will be leaving there around August 18. I can haul a complete car, a rolling chassis or a bunch of parts. Will be traveling mostly across I-80 but am open to detours for pickup my final destination is Manchester, New Hampshire. Doesn't have to be car related. Whatever you need hauled that will fit in my trailer is open for discussion. Experienced driver with a clean driving history. Also a non drinker. Send me a message on FB if interested.

Send me a message on FB if interested. A pick up in California is also possible. The return route is somewhat flexible. It all comes down to cost for diverting to your location.
  15. Does anyone have a source for the rubber pads that the Chrysler 70 uses? They encase the spring ends in rubber. Steele has some but are very pricey. Thanks Chuck
  16. I'm looking for a passenger side taillight stand for my roadster. I have two of the drivers side and could trade or? I want to run taillights on both sides. I believe the aftermarket did something long ago but? The stand from an export model, to England or Australia for example, would be perfect. Thanks, Chuck in New Hampshire
  17. Thanks. I have not contacted Jay in quite a while. Sort of let him slip my mind. I will give him a call. Chuck
  18. I'm looking for 3 or 4 hood hold downs for my 1928, 72 roadster. I have two with the brass top but one is broken. Id like to find a set if possible and reasonable. Thanks, Chuck in NH
  19. I'm looking for some hood latches for my 28 Chrysler 72 roadster. I have two with brass tops but one is broken. I'd like to find 3 more with brass tops or a proper set of 4. Thanks
  20. Thanks for the response. I was underneath the other day and noticed most of the body bolts were already loose. They were replaced with regluar bolts with no lock washer. I'm glad to know the body only needs lifted. I'm redoing the front fenders, hood ledge and aprons. Didn't really want to pull the body off yet. Chuck
  21. I'm trying to remove the fender aprons off of my roadster. Do the body mount bolts go through the aprons? Do I have to pull the body mount bolts out or just loosen them. Thanks, Chuck
  22. Is there a plate rivited on the firewall or someplace? A lot of people did not know about the Id numbers on the dash plaque. Its possible they assigned the VIN for registration purposes. I would think the DMV could figure it out by the numbers and registration history. You probably want to straighten that out before you buy otherwise later registration could be a serious problem. Chuck
  23. Beautiful cars! My Model 72 was a street rod when I bought it so I'm doing sort of a resto rod deal on it. Want to keep the body appearance basicly stock. Do any of you have spare top hold downs for the Model 72? Or do you know what years will fit? I have the top irons but cannot locate any hold downs.
