  1. Thank you ! They are near here too. I knew they did chrome but I didn't know they did plastic. Thank you again
  2. I hope someone o here can help me wit this. I have seen in the past that there are places that will re-chrome your old dash knobs, radio knobs, door lock knobs, etc. A lot of hose items are being replicated to day that is true enough but there are still a lot of makes that are not being reproduced.I have searched in vain and am wondering if anyone on here has ever had it done and/or can tell me a good place to call, or maybe a website? BTW, I don't need this for any of my vehicles. 1:1 scale cars, I restore old R/C cars as a hobby and then go out and have fun with them. I have two radio contr
  3. Yes you are right. If memory serves my 50 De Soto had the bolts too. Someone modified these though as it clearly had studs sticking out threw those stupid mag wheels and some of the lugs were missing. I'm thinking there was something more wrong with the brakes then just a master cyl
  4. Keiser, yes I have moved on. I was looking for something, not mint, but at least roadworthy. This car needs a master cylinder but...........who knows whats wrong with the motor , and it was on fire while I was there. Plus, no floor ! If I had the time and the place maybe I would consider a body off resto but this was not what I expected.
  5. They started out at $2000. Over the phone discussing the car they lowered it to $1800. When I couldn't make it out Friday as planned due to snow, they lowered it to $1400. I still told him, no way am I traveling on these roads to look at it. I'll be there Monday (today). Over the weekend multiple texts and calls about me coming, then Sunday he texts me, I better grab it on Monday becuae there is a guy interested in it coming on Tuesday and he doesn't know if he can hold it for me. I realize the car is 63 years old, I'm not looking for perfection, but the floor was gone a long time ago and the
  6. They were reluctant to push it into the garage for me to have a look underneath. What I could see of the frame looked good but they had plowed the parking lots snow all around the car so it was difficult to see under.
  7. UM, thank you, but no those pictures are very good at hiding major problems !! Went to see it in person today. It does look like the pictures I posted. HOWEVER. Did you know that 1951 Plymouth's were built with floors made from Fiber board? ( This after I asked the guy who is selling it for his buddy, How is the floor and frame--------- response?------- Oh it's solid! )The wiring was a rats nest and that is being nice. This car had 6, yes 6 horns installed including the origianls. Also the engine that ran quiet and smooth....... was so quiet that it never ran! It tried. The current owner told
  8. So can I get away with putting the tubless tires on the stock rims then? It's not like I'll be breaking speed records with the thing ?
  9. Really? Did the change occur between the '50 - '51 model year? My De Soto was a '50 that was why I asked
  10. Harold, I thought if you used tubeless tires on rims that were made for tubes that you run the risk of the tires spinning on the rims? I've never done this before but thought I read of it, maybe on here. When I put new rubber on my De Soto I replaced the tubes and it was kinda a pain. I knew about the reverse lug nuts, thank you. Kinda funny, my friend helped me with my De Soto and he didn't know. I let him struggle with it for a bit then I went over and turned them right off! He yells out, "How'd you do that"?! I laughed and told him it helps if you turn 'em in the right direction!! Bought hi
  11. Thanks again Keiser ! Your keeping me on the right path
  12. Thank you very much Harold ! I haven't slept the last several nights because I am so keyed up about going out to finalize everything. ( Tomorrow morning ! ) Should have it home this week then I can post up picks too. The link you provided me for that website is awesome, I just joined there. Same user name there as here so look me up over there. I'll leave the '50 bumpers on there until I can find the correct '51's. Any chance I could impose on you to post some pics of those bumpers on your 51 for me? Harold & whtbaron, I believe, if memory serves, that my '50 De Soto 4 door sedan had t
  13. The guy I'm purchasing it from said the title states it is a CRB ??
  14. I'll try to get it for you but I probably will not have it until Monday when we do the transfer
  15. Is that one of the numbers on the body tag? Or are you referring to the Vin#?
