  1. Yes. That place has been hit up and personally visited a few times over the years. I've also tried Fat Fender Relics, and they didn't have anything either. You are correct. it has rolled under edges for the clips. I like the idea of forming from a strip that has the right curve for the body, that's probably the best way to approach this.
  2. This is a formed stainless strip moulding. Making it out of chromed solid brass would probably be the "easiest" but the shine would differ between it and the door trim that it continues from. And making all new trim out of solid stock would probably be crazy expensive. I have considered the bead roller forming method. It would have to be a multi step process to get the right triple peaked profile. The trim is only about 5/8" wide. Getting the proper gentle curve and twist along the rear body line would be challenging. I might try the welding multiple straight sections t
  3. I am missing one length of stainless trim for my 1938 Chrysler convertible (rear body side) and this trim is one year only, and specific to coupes and convertibles. Not having had any luck in finding a replacement after years of searching, I am now wondering if it would be possible to fabricate what is missing. I have the other side as a mirror image pattern. I also have many extra pieces of trim from sedans that are way too short and the wrong curvature (most segments are straight, from doors), which I could weld together to get the proper length, but forming the correct contour would be my
  4. I have some extra 1932 parts bumpers for my DL, so I will try to have a look next time I rummage through the barn, but it might be a while.
  5. Perfect. just gave them a call. Looks like they can help me out on sill plates.
  6. That transmission won't work with a 6-cylinder car, unfortunately. but i might have to see if i need it for my 1938 Chrysler coupe.
  7. Does anyone have a 1936-1939 rumble seat coupe that could take photos of what could be a drain trough at the bottom of the deck lid opening?
  8. If you could look into getting some details from your brother's car, that would be super helpful. I have a regular coupe seat I am planning on modifying, but I need pictures and dimensions of the bottom of the seat, the seat cushion, the slider rails, etc. Thanks!
  9. Bringing this back to the top in the hopes that someone might have leads or extra parts.
  10. I'm bringing this back to the top. I am still in need of the parts above if anyone has any leads.
  11. Seeing as I am still actively searching for a transmission myself with this wanted ad, it probably would have been more appropriate for you to start your own topic on this, or just deal through private messages. Thanks.
  12. Hi Dave, Unfortunately, that's all different, but I also don't need those parts, as those areas are still good on my car. Thanks though. Rej
  13. If you get a chance to get some information to me when you get a change, it would e much appreciated! Thanks!
  14. The above lead didn't pan out... so I'm still on the search for an overdrive trans.
  15. I am looking for the following parts for a 1938 Chrysler Imperial convertible coupe (C19): - Complete front seat assembly, including adjusters/slides, or very detailed photographs and dimensions of same from someone's car. The seat appears to be the same on 1937 and 1938 Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto and Chrysler convertible coupes, possibly 1939 Plymouth convertible coupe as well. My car is missing the entire front seat assembly, so any leads or information would be appreciated; - Rumble seat bottom cushion assembly (or detailed dimensions and photos as mine is missing); (same poss
  16. Thanks for the tip guys. I will look it up and see if I can get it. It looks like what I need.
  17. I am looking for a 1937-39 Mopar overdrive, or more specifically T86A-1 transmission with R6 overdrive preferably from a 1939 DeSoto or 1939 Chrysler C22 Royal with the electric overdrive. I will however consider any other non-fluid drive overdrive 3-speed with top cover the the originally bolted to a 6-cyl Chrysler, D DeSoto or Plymouth. We would like to add overdrive to a 1938 Dodge D10 so we can cruise with today's traffic.
  18. up for another round to see if anybody has any extras or knows of parts sources.
  19. I have had a few leads, and found a few smaller items. I have updated my list.
  20. All your posts are super helpful to those like me just starting out on our restoration projects. I do know I appreciate all the information you are capturing here for my own 1932 Dodge DL coupe. So, I thank you for keeping up this topic.
  21. I received a pile of splash shields/mystery panels (?) the attached photos with a shipment of parts supposed to be from a 1932 Dodge DL. I am trying to figure out where these panels would fit on my 1932 Dodge DL, and possibly what car they are really from, as not all look like they fit a 1932 Dodge. Perhaps some of you might have seen some of these on your cars and could help me? I'd like to at least eliminate the ones that I don't need.
  22. That would be the colour! I will have to see about finding a good colour sample that's also portable.
  23. Yes, I have looked there. This code isn't listed, so I am certain it's a Canadian specific colour.
  24. I am helping my brother try to find information for his 1938 Dodge D10 2-door touring sedan. He would like to know what the original colour was listed as, and if possible, what an equivalent available colour would be. The body tag lists the paint code as 1503, trim as AKJ. The original colour was a dark blue. It looks very close to Dodge Blue for US cars. The car was repainted with a slightly less dark blue, and it looks fine for now, but we are also wondering if these cars usually came with a pinstripe along the body. The only stainless trim on the side of the car is along the hood si
