  1. I just bought back the first car I ever owned, a 1932 Dodge sedan - yes the actual car, back in my hands after 45 years. I live in Illinois and have been hearing horror stories about registering a pre-1948 car in this state. I never had problems in the past, but that was before a change that was apparently made in 2009. Now peple are complaining about having to bring the car to inspection stations to verify numbers and of the Liiniois Department of Revenue sending out letters demanding taxes on their "idea" of what the vehicle is "actually" worth after you have registered the car and suppos
  2. I haven't seen the car in 45 years. It's being shipped to me next month. I thought I remembered the wheels being welded, but 45 years is a long time and I may be mistaken.
  3. Has anyone ever powder coated a set of wire wheels? I'm trying to decide on paint or powder coat for the (welded) wire wheels on my 1932 Dodge DL. I was wondering if the powder coat could get into all the nooks and crannies that a wire wheel would have. I've often heard that sometimes it's hard to get complete coverage in objects with deep recesses and odd angles. The car will be a driver, not a show car, so I'm looking for looks and durability. Thanks for any advice or suggestions. RT<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

  5. Car Is Sold Reluctantly selling my 1948 Plymouth P15 Super Deluxe sedan. Selling, only because I found and bought back the first car I ever owned – a 1932 Dodge – so the Plymouth has to go due to lack of garage space. This car has never seen rain or snow in the nine years I’ve owned it. It came from South Carolina and is an original 77,000 mile car. This is a solid car. No rust in the floors, inner or outer rockers. You won’t have to replace the usual Mopar rust outs with this vehicle. this is a nice driver ready for a weekend outing. just turn the key and drive it. Since I hav
  6. Lots of flat, flat, flat farmland. Cornfields as far as you can see. Hot summers, short, but sometimes cold winters. Plenty of activity in the antique car hobby. I think you'll enjoy it.
  7. This is a nice car that deserves a new home.
  8. As usual I wasn't very clear in my post. The diagram just says "small blue braid." My 48 Plymouth had colored wires that had different colored tracers within the wire. i guess I was confusing "braided" with "tracers." Maybe the 32 used solid colored cloth covered wire with no tracers. Better to wait and see what the original wiring tells me. I really liked the R.I. harness I got for my 48 Plymouth, but I recently helped a friend build his own harness using the plywood and nails method and it came out great. We saved a bundle in the process. I'll still buy the wire and connectors from Rhod
  9. I don't want to restart a past controversy, but I need new tires and tubes for my 1932 Dodge DL. Any recommendations from someone who has bought tubes in the last two years and had good luck with them. I intend to drive this car and want to be safe.
  10. My "new" 1932 Dodge DL won't arrive for a month or two, but I'm trying to put together a group of parts I want to install once she arrives at her new home, mostly brakes and suspension. But I also want to install all new wiring as the original has the usual case of crumbles after 81 years. Since I can't see the wiring at the moment, the only thing I have to go by is the wiring diagram in the instruction book. It lists all the colors - although I'm not sure what "black braid" means - but only lists the wire size as "small" and "medium." Would anyone out there happen to know what the gauge s
  11. This would make a nice winter project if you have a business coupe.
  12. I have the front cowl, both doors and the rear convertible section from a 49 Wayfarer convertible. The doors have roll up windows. The bottom 8 inches of both doors and the cowl are thin, but the rest of the metal is solid. the doors have the glass and the hard to find curved stainless frames and vent windows. I have two doors from a Wayfarer Sedan that are identical from the beltline down and are solid if you wanted to graft them together. You also get a complete top mechanism -one brace needs to be welded together, but it's all there and in good shape. And you get the X-brace from the

  14. I'm not sure. I'm just getting started on this car and haven't done enough research. Perhaps someone else on the forum knows. <quickprintreadystate style="display: none;"></quickprintreadystate>
  15. Looking for two front fenders for a 1932 dodge DL six. Side mounts preferred, but I'll take anything. Please note the desperation evident in this post. I wouldn't mind looking at a rear driver's side fender either. Also need a long tail light stalk and a tail light. Not asking for much, huh? I know how rare these cars are, but I'm trying to get the Dodge - my first car that I just bought back from fellow member Phil 32DL6 after 45 years - on the road in time for Auburn Hills in 2014. Any help or leads greatly appreciated. Richard Taylor taylormd@madisontelco.com 618-635-2444 <quickpr
  16. Thanks, Phil. Let's hope between the two of us we didn't wear them out. <quickprintreadystate style="display: none;"></quickprintreadystate>

  18. I'm afraid I already know the answer to this question, due to the lack of any bearings being listed before 1933, but when did the Dodge six change from babbit to insert bearings?
  19. No second thoughts, please. I've been haunted for 45 years. Now it's your turn.
  20. You would have been right. Take it from someone who knows.
  21. It's with a heavy heart that I've decided to sell my great old 48 P15 four door sedan. I never would have considered letting it go under normal circumstances, but an extrordinary thing happened over the weekend. First, a bit of history. It was 1965 and I was attending Syracuse University. One day while walking to class, I spotted a large black sedan in the faculty parking lot. I'd loved "old cars" since I was a little kid and this was an old one - a long black four door with suicide doors and sidemounts right out of one of my favorite TV shows - The Untouchables. I crunched through th
