  1. If I remember right it was around $65 to ship my boards US Mail. I wrapped them flat side to flat side in taped cardboard. I am in southern Wisconsin.
  2. Ram Reproductions is able to do some boards other than 33-34 MoPar. Available boards are listed on their website.
  3. I just had the running boards for my 1934 Plymouth re-covered by Ram Reproductions in Cana VA. He was willing to re-vulcanize my original boards. The boards must be clean and straight. (checked with a straight edge). As they explained to me the board must be straight to properly fit in the mold. 33-34 MOPAR RESTORATION SERVICE - RAM REPRODUCTIONS - ANTIQUE CAR AND TRUCK RESTORATION AND PARTS - Ram Reproductions Antique Auto Restoration
  4. Have you tried Restoration Specialties and Supply in Windber PA? Over the years I have purchased may items from them to put my cars back together again. Most recently some hard to find trim clips for my 40 Plymouth. Nice people too. Very knowledgeable.
  5. I was born in 1959. Grew up in the 70's. These pictures bring back a lot of memories. It was a great time to be a kid.
  6. He built the car in the living room. It wouldn't fit through the door. 🤔
  7. Hi, I am hoping to find a nice pair of rear fenders for my 1937 Desoto. 1937/1938 Chrysler product cars are the same. Dodge, Plymouth Chrysler Desoto. Thank you
  8. They are certainly nice looking fenders. Where are you located?
  9. Simple....The car needed some body work. He was a carpenter, not a body man.
  10. I know the plaid seat cover material you are talking about. I do not know of a source of covers that are pre-made for your P2. Maybe you could purchase an nos cover that would fit any car then use the material to sew up or modify the covers to fit your P2. The old plaid covers look cool and look period correct on many cars.
  11. Still have it. I have a person that is interested. We have not closed a deal. Thank you for your interest.
  12. I always recommend to start with the easy things first. Maybe you have done these things already? Suggest to remove the light to access the switch and fixture. Using a test light or voltmeter see if you have 6 volts at the wire connection at the light. If you have 6 volts leading to your light your wire is ok. The problem could be the bulb, the switch, the socket or the grounded side of the circuit. To test your grounding you can run a temporary grounded jumper wire from a known ground source and connect it to the switched side of the socket. If the light the light comes you will have to resolve the grounding problem. If you do not have 6v to the light, look under the dash near the right or left side cowl pillar for the wire that leads to the domelight. This wire must be connected to a power source. Most likely the light switch in the dash. My experience has been connection problems/grounding problems. Not so much the wire itself. Best of luck. Hopefully you can find the problem without pulling a new wire.
  13. Neat film. Fun to watch. Thank you for posting.
  14. I forgot to mention my clue to the air leak in the fuel line was I could see air bubbles in the glass sediment bowl on the fuel pump when the car was running.
  15. Something else to consider is an issue related to the fuel supply from the tank. I once had a fuel tank that someone had poured in a product that was designed to line or coat the inside of the tank. After many years this coating began to peel off . Now chunks of coating were floating around and could easily block or partially block off the fuel supply. Another time I had a leak in a fuel line fitting that would allow air to be sucked in and not fuel. Because the leak was above the height of the fuel tank it did not leak fuel. It only sucked air. In both of these cases my car would run but it was hard to start. Anyway, that's two more ideas. If you find the problem please let us know. Most everyone has had a similar problem at one time or another. Best of luck.
  16. These are photos of the seat tracks in my 40 Plymouth convertible. If I happen to come across another set I will let you know. As I said, the sliders appear to be the same as other similar vintage. You might be able to modify the legs/stands to lie flat like these..
  17. I prefer the old way the cars for sale were listed. I am interested in all old cars and not just one manufacturer. As it was, I liked to see the variety of cars for sale listed in one place. It was an opportunity to be exposed to cars I know less about. Learning about cars and expanding my horizons makes the hobby interesting. As it is set up now it is difficult to wade through all of the classifications. I probably miss a lot of interesting cars for sale. I do like the breakout by manufacture for parts and topics related to a specific brand. I enjoy the AACA forums and I appreciate the contacts I have made through the forums. I get it now..... I guess I was just a little lost. Thank you Peter for the explanation.
  18. I think the second one looks right. I have seen this pattern on another restored car. If anyone has an original, I would still like to see it. I will be taking the seat out of my car later this week and will post some pictures of the seat tracks. From what I can see the tracks are the same for all cars. The difference is in the feet/legs.
  19. Something to consider on the timing cover seal, If you happen to have a chain cover from a 1937-42 mopar laying around you could install that and use a modern neoprene type seal. You might have to relocate the timing mark tab. I am not sure about the main bearing seal. What you show looks right but I don't claim to be an expert.
  20. Fortunately I have the seat I need. What I am not sure of is the proper stitching on the seat covers and the door panels. You may already know this, the floor of the convertible is raised nearly 4" to accommodate the subframe therefore the side panels of the convertible seat are shorter than the coupe or sedan seat. The convertible seat track is also flat and not inclined like the coupe or sedan. I do think the coupe/sedan split seat could be modified to work if needed. I have attached a couple of pictures of what I am talking about. The seat with the mohair is from a coupe.
  21. I am wanting to replace the non-original interior in my 1940 Plymouth P10 Convertible. Does anyone out there have an unrestored p10 convertible with the original interior intact? I would really appreciate any photos you might be able to provide. Any help or guidance is much appreciated. Thank you.
  22. I have been to Jack's Auto Ranch many times. One of a few yards around here that still have old cars. I recommend to give them a call to see if they have what you are looking for. Reasonable prices too.
  23. Selling my 1934 Plymouth PF Coupe. https://madison.craigslist.org/cto/d/belleville-1934-plymouth-coupe/7199978530.html Car is located in New Glarus WI. Asking price $16,900.
