  1. Taking everything into consideration that I've learned here, I decided not to buy the car. The search continues. Thanks again for all the help on here.
  2. I just can't figure out why the six Volt battery barely worked, but the twelve volt has the car acting like normal.
  3. I'm new to all this, so sorry for all the questions. Would that ballast resistor not bring the voltage down to an acceptable level?
  4. Things like the radio and heater I'm not too worried about. I live in Texas so the heater is not needed too often. If I change out the cables on the battery and leave that ballast resistor on there, is it safe to leave the 12v battery on there?
  5. Thank you for the help.
  6. I am about to purchase a 49 Windsor and have a battery question. The current owner bought the car and purchased a new 6v battery assuming this was correct. The lights barely come on, blinkers won't work and the motor won't turn over. He stuck a 12v in there (and there is a ballast resistor) and everything works great and the car fires right up. Almost seems like a 12v conversion was done by someone else. How can I tell if a conversion was actually done? Seems like the car needs that 12v. If a conversion was not done, is it safe to continue to use the 12v battery since there is a ballast resistor? Thanks for the help.
  7. Hello all. First time on the forum. I just bought a 1949 Chrysler Windsor 2 door. Looks like it needs a new gas tank but I'm having trouble finding a decently priced one online. Anyone know where I can find one or where to find a tank from another car that would fit it? Thanks.
