  1. I removed this working GM 2700 radio/cassette player from an old vehicle I acquired this past summer. It does work, but was not my cup of tea (I am into stock antiques). I am not sure what this fits, and will appreciate reader feedback. I have been told it is correct for a Camero, or Corvette, but once again, don't want to represent anything as it relates to fit. I am asking $125.00 plus shipping for the unit, and if you have any interest, please drop me a note. Thx Vic
  2. Hi Alan: Really looking nice. Looks like you are on the downhill side of this. Take care
  3. I am note sure if it's the same as that used on a car. If the car cover is from a side mount style, then maybe. Any chance you can post a picture or send one through PM. Thx
  4. Just wanted to mention that I sold my 1937 Dodge MC pickup. I also wanted to Introduce the new owner, Curwood (Woody) Sessoms. Woody is a discriminating collector from the Charlotte area, and my truck will be a nice addition to his collection. I believe he has joined the forum. BTW, he is interested in finding a spare tire cover for the truck. Realize there are very rare, but wanted to ask if anyone may have a lead on one. Photos below are from the Hemmings ad. I am moving on to a few other vehicles that have been preoccupying my time, and have enjoyed this forum and the friends I have made through it. Thx Vic Panza
  5. Not sure if this is of any help, but have one pic showing where they are. Don't have the truck any longer or would get you some better shots.
  6. Cleaning out extra parts and miss. stuff I have accumulated over the past few years and came across this old tool set. Thought someone might like it for their Dodge tool collection. I listed it on eBay but thought maybe someone of the forum might be interested in it. This is an interesting old tool. It's designed to remove and ream kingpins bushings. As you can see on the box, it is the required tool for a variety of vehicles including most Dodge and Plymouth vehicles from 1934-47. It also is speced for Kaiser/Frazer for 1946-47. Includes the original box and instructions. I have it listed for $49.99, but if you want it, just make me an offer. PLease send a PM Thx Vic
  7. Hi John: I got in late last night from a business trip and just getting back on my feet. I believe I have the wiper panel handy, and will talk to my paint guy about the red color. He may have custom mixed if frpm an original spot we found under some panel, but let me see. Thx
  8. I don't believe I have any parts with original paint. I will ask my body guy about the brand paint. But, he did custom formulate it. Don't know about Plymouth, colors.
  9. I have this steering wheel puller. Used a standard gear puller for the pitman arm. It was harder to get off then the steering wheel. I think I would start by rebuilding the great box with new seal and gaskets. I also rebuild my drag link, and installed new tir rod ends. Maybe I'll have to fly othere then and get my hands dirty.
  10. The wiper panel has been painted. We did use the original for color match. LMK in you are interested.
  11. BTW, mixed up messages about the steering wheel puller. If you want to use my wiper cover for a color match, LMK and I will mail it over. Thx
  12. John I have a spare wiper access cover that is painted that would be good for a color match. If you need my steering wheel puller, I could send it along. LMK
  13. In addition to the above info, please keep in mind that this is very old technology. Even though my steering components are mostly new and tight, this system has some play in it. I bought a steering wheel puller off eBay yeras ago that did the trick. Have now used it for several projects. If you need one, I could lend it to you. Just pay postage costs in both directions. Or, check with your local auto parts stores as they may have one to lend you. I have used some bolt loosner on mine and a few turns on the pulled and it poped right off. That's after several weeks of manually puling, etc.:) LMK
  14. My body guy custom mixed my paint. I don't have a formula. Do you have any grey left to use for color match? If not, I may be able to get you a sample. LMK
  15. This is actually fairly easy to rebuild, provided the gears are not worn out. You'll want to install a new seal and some shims where the top attaches. The only error I made was not to use enough silicon sealer when I put the body back together, and it leaked. (I had to mand make that gasket...the one that goes between the two sections of the body) Had to take it out of the truck and fix. So, once done, fill it with steering fluid and stand it up to see if it leaks. Lot easier to fix if you don't have to take it out again. Let me know if you have any questions. My truck is a '37 MC and I am sure the gear boxes are the same.
