  1. I've searched older threads for this subject, but didn't find what I was looking for. If I missed an old thread I apologize if I'm being repetitive. I have a 1927 124 coupe and I'm wanting to mount an antique trunk on the back. Does anybody have any experience with this. Was there a rack made by DB? If not, has anybody modified another rack (Ford) or made their own? Any mounting information would be appreciated, as well as photos.
  2. Thanks. As for the VW, you'll have to ask Greg at 250 Restorations and Customs. Greg did the restoration on my Dodge, but has a soft spot for VW's.
  3. I'll try to get a picture up, but I opted for Washington Blue. I believe this was a Ford color. It's very close to what we think was the original color. If it's not, I'm the only one who has to like it and Washington Blue has a special meaning to me.
  4. The bumpers are just painted, for now. The price of plating is OUTRAGEOUS! Used the $3,500.00 that the plating would have cost to finish a few critical things. I had the radiator shroud plated, just because it's prominent and a pain in the ass to get back off. The bumpers and headlight bezels will get plating at a later date. As for the engine, she's fresh as a daisy. COMPLETELY rebuilt. There's only two things on the car that hasn't been rebuilt: the gearbox and the rear end. Both were taken off, inspected, painted, and put back on. The only reason that they weren't rebuilt is because the guts were in perfect shape. I really think she's going to be a beauty when she's done.
  5. Hello all. This was an old thread that I started right after I bought this old gal. Alot of the questions that I asked, now seem a little stupid. The guy that I bought it from told me about advancing the timing. Turns out, she was just tired and in need of some expensive TLC. Since this thread was started, she went into the shop and underwent major reconstructive surgery.Here she is now, just a month or two from coming home. Check her out and let me know what you think.
  6. Anyone know where I can find a switch for my '27 Coupe? Not even sure what I'm looking for.
  7. Thanks for all of the help. LeBaron-Bonney seems to have the material. Once I knew the proper terms, it's easier to Google and find info. Now I'm on to tinkering with the vacuum tank!
  8. The top on my 124 Coupe is in pretty bad shape. I assume that it's original. Anyone know where you can buy a replacement top? If so, how the heck do you put it on?
  9. I've been tooling around the neighborhood lately and it's great. Have some issues to work out, but nothing we can't handle. Problem is that there's just not alot of information out there. Mine has a 4 cylinder D engine. Can't find any info on that. I have the mechanics handbook, but it only shows up to the C engine. Anybody know where I can find something on this?
  10. Can anyone tell me anything about the roof on my '27 DB? I'm assuming that it's the original and in bad shape. Where can I find a replacement?
  11. After a little more research, I found out that my coupe's original color was Tartan Green. Can anyone show me an example of Tartan Green? Can't seem to find anything.
  12. Thanks for the tip, Keiser31. That seemed to do the trick. Another exterior pic and an engine pic. Now that I'm trained, more pics to follow.
  13. Will upload more photos as soon as I can. For some reason, pics won't upload right now.
  14. Thanks, MikeC5. From your post I'm assuming that the starting position of the timing lever is down, or at about 3 to 4 o'clock. This may explain the rough idle.
