  1. At 86,000 miles: rebuilt motor, rebuilt alternator, new radiator, new springs, new front end, new top, new Legendary front buckets with new back panels, new carpet, new windshield washer reservoir, new electric antenna, updated sound system, new Edelbrock OE-style carburetor.  This was my tour car and I put 25,000 highway miles on the car since the upgrades. 


    Cruise control works.


    Problems: some rust, to wit the pan under the accelerator pedal and some on the pan on the passenger rear floor and a little in the trunk floor, and a little over the wheel well on the right rear quarter.  The fuel gauge sending unit needs a ground.  I always had to fiddle with the passenger rear quarter window to get it to go down.

    I'd like to know the year and the make of this car.  It was in a thread somewhere on the net where the poster was asking about correct Chrysler engine colors.  This one is a particularly beautiful example of a six cylinder flat head with the correct Avocado engine block and a Red Head high performance head.  Kind of reminds me of the Christmas!  




    The car is a 1928 Chrysler Deluxe Sport Roadster.  The car is in my care and Hattie's Garage (Rob Burchill) in Maryland did the pretty work.  Hart Machine of Cecil, Ohio did the engine. The car was my dad's high school car in 1930.  The fire wall should be body color but it's my tour car and it had been painted over black at some point and I kept it that way.  And I agree that it's a most enjoyable restoration.  I like the car most with the hood open.

    Satin black for the frame, radiator, headlight bar and tail light bracket. Fenders are black ($10 extra for body color). Engine block is black with a silver or red head.

    The body colors had  standard colors depending on the different Model and body styles.

    Engine color avocado. 



    Friend of mine ran up this neat little item that is perfect for center drilling round shafts in sizes from 3/16" to 1/2".  There is a 'V' notch for larger round stock.  This jig allows you to drill a pilot hole quickly.  


    If you've ever changed out the brake rods on a mechanical brake system you know how many cotter pins have to be drilled.  BRASS CAR guys should definitely have one.  I've also found it very useful for throttle linkage and just anything that requires a cotter pin.  It also came in handy when I had to make odd-ball clevis pins.  The dimensions are 1" x. 3".  It is hardened.  I paid $60 for mine.


    Walt Federline in Frederick, Maryland, is making them.  His number is 301-695-9110.  www.federlineproducts.com/


    I used it yesterday to pin a sleeve on a shaft.  Perfect.
