  1. I forgot to mention the trunk stoplight bezels are for sedans only, they don’t fit the coupe or convertible.
  2. Everything is still available as of this post.
  3. Man, I was looking at the first page of this thread that I started back in April of 2013. I was happy to read that my wife and I had a "comprehensive" plan to have the car restored in time for the 2014 hundredth anniversary meet in Detroit. Boy, was I ever dreaming! Seven years later and I'm still grinding away. Despite downsizing, loss of garage space, knee replacement, restoration setbacks and finding parts, I'm not giving up. I really think I can actually drive the car this summer (late summer) but it won't be finished - interior completion I suspect. For some reason, last year it just wasn't fun to work on the car, probably due to health reasons. That has changed and I'm suddenly really enthusiastic to work on Daphne again and having fun doing it. So if your restoration stalls, don't give up, stick with it. What I have in the garage, compared to what I brought home is really remarkable and I'm frankly amazed I did all that when I look at it. I have also come to the realization that it isn't going to be perfect - I have neither the skill nor finances to make it so, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - a fun, driveable car that will get looks and give enjoyment to many (mostly me).
  4. I have a rebuilt Stromberg carb for a 1953-54 Dodge Red Ram Hemi V8 with a Gyromatic transmission. Never been on a car since the rebuild. I sold the engine I bought it for several years ago. $40 plus shipping.
  5. Two NOS trunk stoplight bezels with glass lens. As good as it gets with great chrome and the factory applied red paint in the lettering. No pits, no flaws, the back looks as clean as the front. $35 each. SOLD Rebuilt voltage regulator, still in the wrapping paper - never opened. Pristine. $10 I'd like to see these parts go to someone who really needs them. Unfortunately, I don't have the room to keep them anymore. I can provide more pictures if you're interested.
  6. Have some really nice parts for sale. These are left over from a 48 I used to own. Shipping on you and is what I pay based on your location. Four taillight bezels, factory chrome, no pitting or damage. Not Pebble Beach - but what factory parts are? just super nice with perfect reflectors. $25 each or $80 for all four. SOLD NOS taillight glass (not plastic) with soft, pliable rubber grommets. $20 for everything. NOS horn rim. Not perfect, but really nice. Chrome shines. There are a few tiny bumps on the inside of the rim that I believe are casting flash. No rust or pitting. $20 SOLD Sedan rear trunk latch. Re-chromed to nice driver quality. Perfect license plate glass, comes with key and re-chromed handle. $30 SOLD Four NOS clips for lower stainless trim. Super hard to find as they always seem to be badly rusted. These have never been used. $40 Four inside door handles, three door and one window. No pits or rust, nice chrome. Plastic is perfect on window handle.

    Window stop

    You can buy rubber pads of varying thicknesses on eBay. Find one of the required thickness and cut out the shape you need with a sharp utility knife with the blade dipped in water and dishwashing soap for lubrication. Glue in place with weather strip adhesive or use screws to attach to the wood.
  10. But then it would be very authentic and disintegrate just like the original!
  11. I think the Chrysler has a 25 inch motor and the Dodge a 23 inch block.
  12. You think yours was bad - check out the front mount from my 32 dodge Brothers DL. And redone by Then and Now Automotive.
  13. I was thinking the other day about a solution to the ubiquitous warped plastic dash panels in the 39 models - and others, too, I'm sure. I don't own a Chrysler, but have read many posts about this problem. Apparently, the plastic is molded onto the metal parts of the dash. Anyway, if someone could provide good, unwarped samples of these panels, they could be 3D scanned into a graphics program and then produced through 3D printing. Once the correct shapes were in the computer, any good designer could alter them to look the same and to fit over the metal parts rather than being molded on. This would also allow you to choose the correct color for the plastic. Once the initial scan and design was done, the printing of the parts would be simple and reasonably economical. Initial cost might be too high if you went strictly commercial, but if you could find a graphic designer/programmer who was interested in the hobby, you might get them to do the project at a reduced rate or even gratis. As I said, once the design work is done, the printing is the easy part. If enough 39 owners got together they could probably split the cost among the group. Maybe the WPC club could get involved. Or maybe someone has already done this and, as usual, I'm late to the game.
  14. If you need any help picking it up or taking more pictures, let me know - I’m just down the road from the car.
  15. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SOLD. I'm cleaning out the garage and have a load of 46 to early 49 parts I hope someone can use. Lots of good dash parts and gauges, including a working temperature gauge. Three NOS headlight rims. NOS Moog suspension part. I'd like ten bucks each for the headlight rims, ten for the two dash grills (one is really nice) five apiece for the gauges and five for the Moog part, and twenty for the four door trim pieces (excellent shape, but I forgot to take a picture, but I can send), and ten bucks for the glove compartment door with all trim, plus shipping. I'd like thirty for the two rear fender guards. They are stainless and have a few dents, but everything can be worked out with a little patience, Everything else is free, you pay the freight. There are some good grill pieces, a turn signal switch and other miscellaneous parts. I know this is beating a dead horse and I'm not trying to be a jerk, but this stuff goes in the trash if nobody wants it. i just don't have the room to store this stuff since we downsized. Not a threat, just a sad fact. I'll ship the cheapest way possible and most of this stuff is small enough not to be too expensive.
  16. I have three of the four pieces of window trim for a 1950 Dodge Wayfarer sedan - I believe they fit 49 to 52. They are in really nice shape, with original paint. I also have the inner windshield trim piece in similar condition. Also have a nice set of trunk hinges and springs in in very nice condition. Cleaning things out and want to see these go to someone who needs them. Free plus shipping, or pick them up. I live in central Illinois. I'm cleaning out parts fr om previous projects. Not a threat, but a sad fact of life, they go to the scrapper if I can't find a taker.
  17. Very cool. I checked Restoration Specialties and their catalog says they have black painted board and the jute padding - they call it floor padding. What did you use to cut the board, the edges look very clean?
  18. Good news. My original channels were attached by a different method that I can’t duplicate. Do you know the size of the screws you used? I assume they are flat-headed sheet metal screws.
  19. I’m curious where you found the jute and the cowlboard. I have a sheet of Homosote left over from another project.
  20. Are the channels thick enough that the screw heads bury deep enough into the felt to avoid interfering with the glass? Just getting ready to do this job on my 32 Dodge Brothers and this part of the operation has me concerned.
  21. Yeah, I have two, one on each side. Same size, different hole patterns. It only took about half an hour to make two. Still have to drill the holes, but that won’t take much time. Thanks for looking!
  22. Both of mine are the larger size, maybe 4-1/4 or 4-3/8 inches center to center screw holes. The Free-Wheeling cable in a big one and goes through the driver's side grommet along with the oil pressure gauge line, the water temperature gauge line and I think the large distributor wire that goes to the coil behind the dash panel.. I'm actually having an email discussion with Phil Kennedy, the PO, who owns a very original 32DL. here is how his car is laid out - with my graphic comments. Both distributor wires may go through there, I'm not sure at the moment.
  23. I've got plenty of rubber left. I can make you up one if you need it. I'd just need to know hole sizes and spacing if there is enough left to tell. I think the 32s had a few more wires and cables (free-wheeling), but the cover looks the same.
  24. As you can see, it looks pretty good inside the cover. All I need to do is drill the correct holes in the rubber. I was a bit worried the drill might catch and tear the rubber, but my forstner bit made a very clean hole with no problems.
