  1. ​I'm also going to take a guess, This is definitely a 33, trust me, and the build card says wire wheels, because of the state of the roads or no roads in the Bloemfontein area of South Africa they might of stored the wires and fitted the steels for durability. One things for sure its back on wire wheels now. Thanks for your input.
  2. Here's the best I can do but got to say they are more rounded than I thought, they fit the sidemount cover OK but of course they might not even be Chrysler.
  3. Hi Mr T, that was what I thought, not having much knowledge on the subject but I don't think they appeared in the UK until 1938 on the Morris and Standard 8s. This next clip is the same car in 1970. The Mini in the background didn't launch until 1959
  4. The photo under has been sent to me and I am wondering if the wheels on it were right for the day, It is a PD and would guess taken around 1940?? I have checked the parts book but don't see a steel pressed wheel listed. What are your thoughts? Thanks
  5. This is a 33 Plymouth rack which to me looks the same apart from the emblem ​If they are the same and sure someone will soon tell us , it could make your search easier for a replacement. Sure is a nice looking motor.
  6. Chris those blades look great, think my rear will come up ok, did I read somewhere that your front is a repo.? when you get a minute could you measure across the outside fixings on the front are so that I can compare it to the one I have. Many thanks.
  7. That dims does it for me Mike, Thanks
  8. Mike the body metal is 19swg but the gutter channel and the rear beam are thicker not sure of the gauge?
  9. Hi Mike, these are from my 33 Plymouth PD Rumble Seat Coupe which is a dodge body (or close to) Not sure what the 2 holes are for but I will get them at the end of the week. Note that vertical end points are to the outer edge of the bead line (where I think yours has been cut off) as mine is rusted out at the bottom rad.
  10. Thanks Boys great information, and Mr T don't let the beggars get you down, the work you do is invaluable (we wont mention mechanical and hydraulic brakes here)
  11. ​OK understand what you are saying, no they do not appear in the 1933 parts list. What I could do with is the dim of the 2 fixing holes as marked in photo and also what the stand-off from the horns to the back face of the bumper blade.
  12. What I have found is that the front bumper I have is not Plymouth, it has the dip in the middle section but also has a centre fixing hole and one either end on the return. (could be Citroen Traction) I have found this photo of a 33 listed on an internet auction house. The fixing covers that Chris mentioned are clear to see on that car.
  13. Thanks for the reply Lynn, I'm fortunate in the fact that my repair is below the recessed bead therefore the panel will be conical into the 1/4" rad. I have most the tools to do the job, stretcher/shrinker a part built wheel etc. What I do need is the dimension as in Pic 6 or from the bottom of the gas tank hole down to the end of the 1/4" Rad. Your angled edge to the rad in Pic 1 looks quite different to my Pic 3 ??
  14. Hi Chris, thanks for the quick reply, I have looked at the panels Floyd produces but feel there's nothing there I can't produce myself plus the fact I would be throwing more metal away than using, that being said, brilliant panels though. Your comments on the cross member, is that the piece in pic 2 ? or are you referring to the panel immediately above the gas tank. About the drainage from the trunk lid, my intention is to totally redesign that area, on my body there is nothing to take the water that runs off the lid itself in-conjunction to the side channels that you refer to. Finding parts this side of the pond is very slim, according to POC there is 1 other 33 and 3 34's in the UK.
  15. Rust got the better of the backend, this is the only area thats missing on the whole car, its a PDX rumble seat 1933. What I am trying to do is establish the approx dims to make good, eventially there is a rear valance which covers the gas tank and bumper irons. Picture 1 is another car with the same rust problem. Picture 2 is my trunk rear floor panel. Picture 3 shows where the previous owner got happy with the angle grinder and cut back to good metal. Picture 4 is where I have laid-up paper template of what is needed to be replaced on the rear inner fenders. Picture 5 is Pic 4 with the paper removed. Sketch 6 is the info hopefully someone can come up with, Im guessing that the ? dims is about 3", but I would like to make it right. Thanks for looking.
  16. ​Scott load it into "Paint" resize it 25% save as ?? and post it here. You may get away with 50%, try it
  17. , The seat has 4 1/2" movement, these views may be completely different on the convertible.
  18. Probably too late but this is mine today inner edge is end of panel.
  19. ​Firstly the serial no starts with a 2 build between 6th and 12 of September 1933, the build card decode sheet states the model is a 6 (Deluxe) Model code Engine # Prefix: PD-PDX, Plant Detroit I may have confused things a little by posting the images of the green car which was used by a South African company in its annual report. My intention was the type of view I am looking for of the bumper fixings and the fact that I am missing sidemount covers complete (all I have is the holes below the belt line and on the fenders. Time will tell what the car looked like in its early years in SA (if I'm lucky) currently 2 different car clubs are researching the history for me. Are you saying that Detroit builds for export were knock down?
  20. Thanks for trying Chris, I do understand what you mean about doing a trial fit first. There are lots of unknown about these bumper blade fixings, obviously the bracket from the horns have to be bent down to bring them parallel with the ground, then they have to be bent to give the correct stand-off from the leading edge of the front fenders. I'm going to put these on hold until you can give me dimensions you are happy with. These images are of a early 1933 PC, I'm going to looking for side mount covers some time in the future. The bumper fixings are totally different as is the blade not having the dip in the middle.
  21. That looks a tidy patch panel, I think they all go through there, not quite sure why? Regarding the back seat dilemma I have the same problem but added to that mine has the rear window winder on the graduation mechanism, The seat base is on sliders to adjust the driving position, the parcel shelf has a thick cardboard type layer which I feel is original as is the roof bows and chicken wire.
  22. What year are these, I have a set of 6 No joy with the rear fender dimension, sorry my day didn't go to plan, now away until Tues.
  23. ​Your head lamps look to have an extra inner ring over the glass, I'll check mine out later.
