  1. ​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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. ​Your head lamps look to have an extra inner ring over the glass, I'll check mine out later.
  6. Chris, I will check mine tomorrow and take some shots, my stalks are still attached so will get a measurement from the base up sitting the same as yours.
  7. I appreciate that knobless's old car may not be correct but it clearly shows the cover plates in chrome.
  8. Chris, can you give me a rough dimension on the front brackets as shown on your photo under Many thanks
  9. Ok you have confirmed that the rear bracket is correct, I now need to get the shape right for the front. My front bumber blade has the dip in the centre as in the my avatar, I could do with a shot from above of the front fixing showing the cover plates that Chris mentions. Main thing is we are making progress. Many thanks
  10. This is the right hand drive version of the firewall, now I have my body off the chassis.
  11. These bumper brackets came with my PD but I only have 2, 1 back and I think 1 front. The rear one on the top looks as if it will fit the 2 holes just in front of the back rear spring hanger, but I am totally lost where the lower bracket would fit. I do have the front bumper blade, but want to make sure its PD before I make a duplicate opposite hand bracket. ​Trusting someone will recognise them, thanks for looking.
  12. ​Chris my PD was exported to South Africa in Sept 33, I think that the Chrysler Kew was the UK model but unsure if they all had leather trim. Check back to my other thread http://forums.aaca.org/f154/viewing-33-pd-rumble-seat-coupe-343382-2.html regarding the preferred colour scheme. Cheers
  13. Photos as promised, sorry it took so long. Photo 1 is of the back side of the Rumble seat back, note the 2 lugs at the top which slot into the slots on you trunk lid Photo 2 front face of photo 1 Photo 3 Rumble seat cushion Photo 4 Drivers bench seat back showing the steel frame Photo 5 Drivers seat complete. If you need more detail just ask.
  14. Thanks Chris that will do to be going on with. On the other matter of rumble seat make-up etc. I'm out at my storage tomorrow and will get photos of what I have. Many thanks Tom.
  15. What I am looking for is overall dimensions of my 1933 Plymouth PD Rumble Seat Coupe, at present my car is a rolling chassis with the body off. My reasons are that I am offered a covered trailer and I need to know length, width, height and weight before I commit to it. Many thanks for your help.
  16. Hi Chris, I have the rumble seat complete out of my 33 coupe at the moment, what I don't have is any of the interior trim. My coupe was originally trimmed with leather to the seats this has since be reupholstered in leather cloth but I am hoping it will give you a point to start. The backrest follows the shape of the trunk lid on the backside. Give me a couple of days and I will post pics for you. Regards Tom
  17. Thanks 1935EB the colours have come out great the only thing is that since posting last I have come across a PD in the same colour as mine is now, albeit mine hasn't seen paint for a good few yrs. It may well be a well know car your side of the pond but I just think it looks right.

    unknown PD

  19. Thanks for your replies Gents, I have to admit that I am a bit bemused by all the different information you have given on the original codes, still nothing on the hide color and how much of the interior would have been fabric and how much leather. Thanks again for what you have collectively posted, I look forward to seeing the paint samples.
  20. Still trying to find what I can and have now received my copy of the Build Card. It tells me that the car was built for export to Johannesburg SA Sept. 33 the trim was leather 401 and paint was 545, can one of you wizards give me info of what those codes actually mean. Thanks
  21. Turns out that its a Detroit built car, don't know if it was exported in kit form but now have the details to apply for a copy of the build card. Thank you for the info you have given me.
  22. In the next few days I shall have the car back in N Devon, then I can check out all the No. and we will see where that takes us. The only No. I have at present is of 5 digets which I think may be the frame No. but thats a guess on my part. As said before this car was exported to South Africa where it spent its life until 2002 when it was inported to England and it has never been UK registered. I am lead to believe this could be the only known 33 PD of this body style un the UK, there is another but its a rag top. As I said the car will be with me Sunday next so lets wait and see.
  23. Thanks for the link Mr F have touched base with Jim, very interesting.
  24. Thanks for that info but I'm of the opinion that most of the Kew 6's are long gone. Is there a register of what cars exist and where?
  25. Yes it is the Plymouth PD Deluxe Late 1933 with the 189 cu in staight 6 once its home I will be able to confirm the Vin and engine Nos. so that I can get age related docs for UK registration. Where would I go to get the age related docs??
