  1. Need some help locating Front Floor Pans and Rear Lower Quarter Panels from the B pillar to the wheel arch for a 2 dr Coupe. This is the car that needs the panels to keep her on the road. Any leads will be appreciated.

    Thanks Tom

  2. Hi Tim, have known Wayne since 2012, always very helpful. Your car being a Canadian build you wont be able to get a Chrysler Historical Build Card, story goes that when the Windsor Plant was shut down some of the boy had a bonfire and the microfiche slides were lost. You could get a letter from them stating that the serial # is within the 1938 build production. (I have this for my LA bult PT125) What would have been useful to you would be a follow on from ply33.com but sadly that stops at 1937, it covers the first decade of Plymouth production. have fun with your project.

  3. Hi Gents, these are available if they are of interest, they will fit the PD, PE, PF & PG Coupes, not sure if the Dodge Coupe had the same rear valance but sure someone will chip in. For the last 3 yrs I have a pair of these nailed to a piece of timber sitting on the top of a container to make sure the elements will not affect them. When lockdown is through I will take a ride out to my unit where I think I may have approx 10 pairs.

    TomP....Where are you located? I may have the seat frame that you need. The center rib was cut, but could be replaced.

     

     

     

    Hi Keiser31, Just seen this postI live in the UK and have only since Christmas replicated one. Shipping cost would have killed it, not the weight but the volume. Thanks anyway 3 1/2 yrs later

  5. Scott, thanks for your answers they are very useful as it had no welting at all when I bought it, still have an amount to do. Both sidemount covers need repair and I have parts for the sidemount iron to machine and adapt from other models, would like to think it could be this year but it all depends on how many times I trip myself up with the 2 others I'm working on.

    Good to know your PE still going forward  Tom

  6. FENDER WELTING. 33 R/S PD Coupe

    About to start putting this one back together, need some advise on where the Fender Welting should go or perhaps where it shouldn't go. At the moment the body is 2" off the frame, no panels are bolted to the body and the running boards are not attached to the side sills (rocker panels?), at the rear, the valance is ready to bolt to the trunk floor. If possible an order of assembly would be useful.

    Look forward to your advise.

    Right, someone changed the fenders.

    I do have all of the hardware for them, but none has ever been installed.

    I prefer the looks of the side mounts, but would probably rather go back to regular fenders on this one.

    However I don't really see this project in my future.

    I would rather sell it.

    May I ask what you value yours at Jack

    Jack. I don't see any sign of the sidemount hardware that goes into the cowl. Not even the holes for it. This car wouldn't have come with sidemounts. I like it a lot with the rear spare. If it were mine that's the way I'd leave it. I have a 34 coupe and a 34 conv. both Canadian model DT. They both have rear spares. I sold off the sidemount fenders I had collected to change them over. Glad I did!

    I have seen one Chrysler model that bracketed up from the frame rail to a false hub that didn't use side mount irons but I can't find the photo on my system.

    I have never tried to start it.

    The guy I got it from told me that he popped it off once by pouring gas into the carburetor.

    I think the rear spare is the original one, If I am remembering correctly the front fenders have been changed.

    I think I should sell it. The only reason I made a deal on it is because of its rarity.

    I guess it doesn't cost anything to leave it parked, Its very complete.

    Interesting, if it turns ok no reason why it shouldn't start with a little work, most of what I've seen photo wise have had the side mounts, I don't have any Dodge literature to refer to. Wish I lived closer might have done a deal.

  10. Hi Jack

    Wheelbase121 inches                  Quite a handsome car but what an ugly rear panel no wonder someone put the extra spare on the back. Don't understand your comment that you don't know what to do with it, does it get a lot of use?

    Were there different body styles within the DS model as you would get under the Plymouth PE , I take it there is not a database similar to Tod's First Decade for Dodge?

  12. Looking for anything I can find on this model, most of what I have worked on so far has been Plymouth but recently I have made contact with a friend that has this DS Convertible in pieces and I am trying to help him. I have established that it is on 121" W/B and is a 4 door model with an extended trunk bulge possible extending 10/12"at the top giving a vertical rear panel. There is no windshield uprights or frame, the ragtop has almost fallen apart. The only photo I can find is the one below. I believ only 350 of these were ever made but would parts from other Chrysler cars fit. 

     

    Thanks for you help.
