  1. That is for 1929 DeSoto K series up to serial number KE-471-L or Canadian OW-824-P. Any idea on a price yet?
  2. According to my Chilton Interchange you the 1929 model 65 matches 8 other cars Chrysler ‘28 62 ’29-‘30 66 ’29-‘30 70 to serial 17075 Dodge ’27 124 4cyl ’28 128 4cyl ’28 Victory 6 ’28 Standard 6 ’28-30 DA6 This is from the 1934 Chilton Interchangeable Parts Handbook, it has come in handy a few times and can be found on ebay.
  3. Just call your credit card company. Tell them that you have been trying to return the item that doesn’t fit and you can’t get a response from the vendor. They will start a dispute on your behalf and either get a return started for you or give you a refund and do a charge back to the vendor. Remember your credit card company works for you and they have a process for this exact scenario.
  4. Here is another link with more detail on the car. I guess you could call it a British Speedster. It also appears that they wrote a book about this car’s journey. No matter what you may think about it, there is real craftsmanship involved in building an aluminum over ash body. I could never own a car like this, I’d drive it too much. Phoenix Special
  5. I finally got a chance to hang my cabinets. I still need to arrange the lower cabinets, install the lights, build the countertop, paint the walls and put down epoxy on the floor. Once all that is done then the real work can begin.
  6. I recently moved so just got around to renewing. I was able to do it online in just a few minutes including updating my address, zero issues.
  7. Gary, The wiper motor on my DeSoto is similar to this one on eBay. There is a small knob that you pull out to turn on the motor.
  8. You set yourself up for it, you posted your phone number in an open forum. You should only give it out in a private message.
  9. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, but I do have a mold for one of these. I bought it on eBay several years ago and haven’t had the time to have it checked out yet. It looks to be well made and the seller stated that it had been used to reproduce the saddles. The mold will need to be checked by a foundry to see if it is useable and if/how much shrinkage was allowed for. It did come with one original saddle the was used to make the mold, so I can have a sample made to see how close it is to the original. It is currently boxed up in sitting in storage. I don’t expect to get it out until Apri
  10. Gary, I don’t have my parts book handy to look up which type our cars use. If it’s the inline type try Restoration Supply If it uses the recessed type, then you just need to measure the diameter and compare to a modern Stant that you can get anywhere.
  11. Who needs a hemi when you can have a real Fast Four.
  12. Per the parts manual you need Rear-Fender-Left-Sedan 336321 Rear-Fender-Right-Sedan 336322 Those part numbers are unique to the CK and to the Sedan, if someone has a Chrysler, Plymouth or Dodge parts manual they can look to see they are used on any other models.
  13. The fabric roof was used only in the first part of the production run. I bought one in WV on eBay ~5 years ago. The seller stated that he had a valid title but it somehow disappeared after the auction ended. They eventually produced a title but it had the engine casting number as the vin. I got my money back and it sold again to who knows where. No way I’m taking on the DMV to get a vin correction, I couldn’t get them to do a mileage correction even with their own paperwork showing it was their mistake. Do you have one of these? I’d like to see a picture if you do.
  14. The golf carts are the problem, not the mobility scooters. The scooters are small and slow, the golf carts on the the other hand are not. I witnessed several close calls, the worst being at the pedestrian bridge. To add a little perspective to the size of the swap meet, I walked about 1/3 of it in 22,000 steps covering 10.8 miles. So I have no doubt that there are a lot of members who would need some assistance to cover that distance.
  15. Looks like you have a real project there. It will take a lot of work to bring it back to stock. Best place to start is with a parts manual. There are reprints available from a few vendors or on eBay. Look in the Plymouth forum for parts, you may want to look for a parts car because of the amount of parts missing and the the frame has probably been modified. Good luck.
