  3. That would be great, thanks for any help. As far as I know it's 5" in diameter.
  4. Trying to locate these original parts. I realize I can make these or have someone make them, but I'd like to locate originals for this restoration. If anyone has these parts please PM me so we can discuss price. Thanks for any leads/help. Dave 1.) Bumper Medallion 2.) License bracket 3.) Side mirror and bracket
  5. What are the numbers on the 29 gearbox case ?
  6. The first thing I thought were cab/fender/mounting bushings might be a different size, and to me, it could explain why they are out of line. All it takes is one bushing/spacer to cause this.... Was the truck in a previous accident, taken apart for any reason?
  7. Hey Viking, can you post a couple of photos of the overall view of the front clip on both sides and include a straight on shot of the front? To me, it looks like it's been repainted. which tells me it could be several things.... Parts weren't lined up correctly A. either prior to paint or B. if it was painted off the frame then some parts after paint may have been out of place, or C. if bushings or wrong size bushings were used on repaint that weren't originally used. D.The list of possibilities are endless but other photos (zoomed out) may shed some light on exactly why. E. F. G.??? Hope this helps, Dave
  8. It's been a real pleasure watching the progress you've made over the years and I commend you for putting your heart into it, Vic. You did an amazing job and it's encouraging to see she found a good home. Congrats to Woody and his grandson. May they enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks also for keeping us updated (not that you were obliged to 😉) Regards Dave
  9. Not sure of the originality but what a classy and clean look.... Beautiful
  10. Going by the lock spring charts I have, I've put together a list of five possibilities. NOTE the 4 outer circles on spring w/ part #3-1723 in first photo is the one I'm thinking is correct(assuming the connector is the same shape, hard to tell since it's attached to the mechanism I could be wrong though.) . Spring may fit the following vehicles. Hope this helps narrow your search down. 1938 Buick 1938 Cadillac 1938 LaSalle 1938 Oldsmobile 1938 Pontiac
  11. Hey Doug, does this answer your question? Note the statement : " 5 wire wheels - Rear Mounting ( no spare tire )" Could the DA's with dual side mounts also have the option of bare metal rims with no tires? It appears it may have been possible - although it looks like they recommended the Direct and Associated dealers try and close the deal with spare tires. I could see new owners opting out and purchase their own spares at a later date for possibly less money though.
  12. I probably would have given him a ride ... "You can ride in the back with the rest of the tools Hank" !
  13. Hi Rick, that's a tough one. .. Any way you can get better pics of the one remaining gauge? May have to take it out ( if possible..) A photo of the back of that gauge may also help. Dave

  15. Anyone know if Dodge Brothers used either of these type of gauges? They're both currently on eBay for $30 plus shipping if anyone needs one of them. Note the part #'s are different. No affiliation with seller and condition unknown... If not DB or GB related shoot me a PM and I'll delete post if needed. First one - Item # 153731175665 Part 2135-N Below - Item # is 163951849462 Part 1823-N
