    1934 PE ??

    No joy from the Skillman Library, they do not have any record prior to production, never mind , the truck should be with me in a couple of days.

    1934 PE ??

    Now waiting for UK customs to clear the documentation and bill me so that the shippers can release, have transport standing by, shouldn't be long now. Chrysler Historical advised me to contact Detroit Public Library and in turn they have forwarded my enquiry to the National Automotive History Collection at the Skillman Library to see if they can shed any light.
  3. This is what you should be looking for, I'm with knobless, back in the day more often than not roads were tracks, these stopped mud rubbish and debris being thrown into the engine bay, I am of the opinion that modern sump guards are more in tune with cooling.
  4. Don't know if the early ones were different to the 33/34 but it may help.
  5. Don't know anything about them but take a look at showcarquality.com for your gauges they advertise in Plymouth Bulletin
  6. ​Great looking truck, good find, thanks for posting.

    For the record here is the reply from Chrysler Historical " I show this vehicle as a 1934 Plymouth DeLuxe (6 cylinder) car. The number you provided is actually the engine number and not the serial number, according to our files. Plymouth did built trucks, but the only way to verify this is by ordering the build card. To look up the build card, we would need the serial number, which should be located on the driver’s side door pillar and should be seven digits long. If this is a truck, the serial number should start with an 8. If this is a car, the serial number ranges are attached. " I will just have to be patient. should land around end of month but not sure how long UK customs take to clear. Got to congratulate the service I have received from Chrysler Historical, couldn't be more helpful.

    Yes that clarifies it, I had read somewhere about that but on my PD I could only find part of a number starting PD, it was lucky that POC had it on the roaster from way back that I could get the build card. Here is part of the title from 1986 and as you mentioned above the serial No. is the engine No. with suffix 34, I have contacted Chrysler Historical with this information but not expecting the reply I'm hoping for, unfortunately engines get changed and perhaps tin work as well. .
  9. The rolling remains I have purchased from the Texas owners of the title which goes back to 1986 is assembled as the photos show, not just a cab with the wrong body tag attached. It is also the same truck mentioned in the Allpar article these are my reasons for not wanting to confuse the two threads. There was no production Plymouth PU's before October 1936 but there is very little knowledge of pre production development of almost any vehicle.

    ​Is the frame No. the same as the serial No. ?
  11. Please do not confuse this thread with 1934 PE ?? they are totally different threads. Thanks

    ​Talking instrument panels my photo in the first post I'm completely bewildered what a Buick style panel would be installed in a Plymouth or Dodge cab, I know on the Plymouth the fascia panel is part of the body construction ie. welded in, so would that be the same on a KC body. Another thing were both Plymouth and Dodge bodies built in the Briggs Plant? Thanks for your help Gents.

    Scott for sure it's got coil spring independent front suspension which was only used on the PE . This is the truck mentioned in the Allpar article you wrote about, I have the 1986 title (copy) http://www.allpar.com/history/plymouth/pickups.html

    Thanks Scott, that put an interesting twist on it, possibly Dodge cab with PE hood and front fenders, 37? wheels and dump box, don't know what the frame is until it's home.

    Received some more photos before it went into the container, perhaps someone can shed light on it's make-up. The belt line looks to remain level with the doors aposed to sweeping upwards as it goes around the back corner but I've not seen one's that's like my photos. In the first pic top L/H does the beaded up-stand behind the 'B' post look familular?
  16. Hi Abe got some shots today, it looks like a couple of bolts possibly 1/2" bolt the rad core through a U shaped bracket into the frame, the U shape could well be part of the rad outer frame? Note the fender brackets also fix to the U shaped bracket
  17. Not sure if this will help but with the lack of replies I'll have a go. I am working on a PD with side mounts and I am of the opinion that the difference in the wheelbase only affect the hood/fender dims. if I'm wrong it will bring the experts out of hiding. The PC w/b 107" against the PD w/b 112" so there is 5" between the 2 models, Photo 1, 7/16" x 20 UNF Photo 2, 1/4" flat x 1 1/8" tapped hole 5/16" from end 5/16" x 16 UNC Photo 3, 2 1/4" thread The side panel of the hood just below the hinge is 45" on the PD, a lot of guess work here but hope it helps.
  18. I also find that interesting, the early photos I have on mine shows 34 steel artilleries, I wonder if it was any thing to do with the rubber stamp they used?
  19. Dave hope this helps, 1933 Plymouth PD Plant is Detriot serial # 2,000,001 to 2,186,951 RHD Rumble Seat Coupe 9/6/33 Motor PD 1001 to PD 195997 Shipped to Johannesburg 9/12/33 There are 2 ways of ordering a build card, a direct copy or a copy with decoding http://www.chryslergroupllc.com/company/Heritage/Heritage%20Documents/Chrysler%20Historical%20Services/Build_Record_Order_Form.pdf

    POC have advised me that the serial No. on the title is an engine No. with 34 tacked on the end, is it known if Chrysler Historical can cross ref engine No. to serial No.? (I have a copy of the 1986 title)

    1934 PE ??

    Thanks for your input Scott, can't wait to get it home to find out what it actually is, interesting on the 10 & 12 spoke artilleries my PD was originally purchased with 16" artillery but now has correct 17" wire wheels. Think my PE started out as a 4 door Sedan and had a dump box prior to 1986, hope I can get the serial No. from the frame, time will tell.

    ​While browsing through the Plymouth section I came across a PT50 with similar wheels can anyone confirm?
  23. ​Looks like you've found a good one there, look forward to your progress.
  24. The screws are 1/4" x 20 tpi UNC hope the photos help.
