  1. No, still have it. Just have it on Craiglist and here right now. John 816-550-1928 If you have any questions.
  2. 1933 Plymouth 2 Door Sedan 35,600 original miles Clean Missouri title Asking $13,000 Body is in amazing shape with nothing more than minor surface rust inside door panels and such. Absolutely no rust through anywhere on this car. It appears to be all original except for tires and wheels which I have 2 originals along with all 5 hubcaps and the front seats which I have both originals. It appears it may have been repainted at some time but with original colors. Since purchasing I have gotten the car running and it purrs like a kitten with the original 189.8 ci 6 cylinder engine. I have also done the following with any important original parts that were removed being saved. 1)Brakes – relined, adjusted, new dual master cylinder for safety reasons, new front brake lines, new fluid. 2)Repaired drag link (was about to fall off). 3)Performed steering adjustment according to manual 4)Replaced rubber bumper stops in doors and door latch springs. 5)Replaced non original Marvel carburetor with non original but standard replacement Stromberg BXV-2 carburetor and added a fuel pressure regulator. 6)Cleaned and checked fuel pump and filter bowl. Diaphragm in good shape with strong fuel pressure. 7)Installed missing thermostat with proper 160*, new coolant hoses, and checked radiator for leaks. 8)Installed new spark plugs, new plug wires non original type, cleaned distributor cap (good pickups), and new rotor as it was worn. 9)Drained fuel tank and inspected for rust and debris (surprisingly clean). 10)New 6 volt battery, battery tray, and battery cables. 11)Removed caulking from where the front cowl vent was sealed closed. This is an exceptional all steel car with no apparent damage or bodywork anywhere. It would be great for someone wanting to do a restoration or a resto-rod as it needs very little.
  3. Yes it is, and installed since photo was taken.

  5. I recently acquired 2 distribution tubes 25 1/2" long. Guessing they are for the larger motor but believe they can be cut and used on the short motor as well. I am not out to make a killing on these so if somebody needs one make me a reasonable offer. UPS shipping is probably in the $15 range. These are for the Dodge & Plymouth motors best as I can tell. May fit others using these same motors. Thanks, John :cool:
  6. This is the one I'm considering 1933-1942 Parts Interchange Handbook Manual 269 pages Plymouth Parts Interchange Book 1933 1934 1935 1936 37 - eBay (item 370398601567 end time Dec-15-10 16:15:03 PST) http://www.paper-n-parts.com/pdfcoverimages/1947interchange1.jpg
  7. P.S. should I buy the parts interchange book I see available on the net or Ebay? Will this help in my quest for info? Thanks, John
  8. Based on engine # and serial # mine is a PCXX. While I'm not certain the car hasn't been repainted it was the same color if it was. There are areas that appear to have been repainted. The body is blue with the fenders and running board black. I believe the interior except for carpet is original. I will attempt to post some pics here shortly. Thanks for the info. It's already more than I've been able to find so far. John
  9. It's the Silver Dome PC so I'm pretty certain it's the 189.8. Just wondering if the other motor parts are interchangable.
  10. I have a 33 Plymouth 2 door sedan with a 189.9 ci engine or so I believe. I however don't find anything on the net about this engine. What I find listed is a 201, 218, 230. Can someone shed some light on the subject for me? I'm considering doing a flathead hop up but am confused about what parts I can use. :confused: Thanks for any inlightenment.
  11. What's the seller asking? I just bought a 1933 2 door sedan for $9000 in what sounds to be the same shape with only 32K miles. I was going to steet rod it but want to get it on the road first. Maybe worth something to someone looking to restore. John
  12. I've spent hours trying to find out what the original carb on this old 33 sedan was only to find Carburetor sites themselves not to agree. This is what they have listed, the Carter BBR1, Carter C6A3, C6A4, some the Stromberg BXOV-2 and the BXOV-25. Please help! I'm not doing a show restore but what would the judges be looking to see on this car? Any help would be great. Thanks, John :confused:
