  1. Thanks Bob. I wasn’t sure if there was a special Chrysler number. I will try to match what I have. I hope all is well with you
  2. I am now tackling the convertible top for my 1949 Town and Country. I would like to know what the paint color is for the convertible frame. Currently it is a light Tan color? Is there a standard paint call out? Part Number? Brian
  3. Blinkers don't work at all. When I acquired the car they weren't working. Replaced the lights and the flasher, still nothing! Figured it was best to check the steering column Brian
  4. Any information on how to pull the Steering column apart to repair/inspect my blinker assembl?. Fuse is good, blinker itself is new, but no action.
  5. Thought I would ping you and hope your move has gone well. Settled in? Thought I would to find out about the hood ornament for the hood. Found it?
  6. Is the 1949 New Yorker Rear Bumper interchangeable with the late model year 1949 Town and Country? Brian
  7. I looked at this car last month. It is in Irvine California. It had been listed by the new owner on barnfinds.com
  8. Thanks very much for the lead. I will investigate this company. They are only about 7 hours from me. My car came from Michigan in a gazillion pieces. I know, what was I thinking. 3 years into it so far and stalled by lack of time and wood patterns. This working for a living is getting a bit tedious. i hope your unpacking into the new shop is going well and no major troubles.
  9. Thanks for the reply. I am now 3 years into my restoration of my 1949 Chrysler Town and Country. Stripped and blasted the frame and painted myself. Pulled the body to fix the rotted out rockers, floors and trunk floor. This has been a long process doing this work. I am trying to do it correctly. This hood piece would be worthy of my car, trust me. I am completing the restoration as funds allow and spare time. So my timeline is long. Let me know once you are settled, find the mascot and evaluate your best price. Included are a few photos of where I am now. Currently struggling with the wood as I have no patterns. Best Regards,. Brian
  10. I am just seeing this post, is your 49-50 Hood Ornament still for sale? Price? Goal is to mount it to my 1949 Town and Country Brian
  11. I finally have found some time to work on my Town and Country. Currently I am looking for the Hood Braces. Photo below shows it as 15-28-12 or 1244 825 Brace, Hood Panel Hinge Strainer, Right 1244 826 Brace, Hood Panel Hinge Strainer, Left Secondly, does the inside of the hood get painted the color of the car? What color should hinge spring Assembly get painted? Cross Braces? Thank you, . Brian
  12. I've been using Lakeside Custom Plating in Ohio. My project is a 1949 Chrysler Town and Country which is loaded with a lot of Chrome plated pot metal. Tracy is great to work with.
  13. I am in need of the paint color for the underside of the body and fenders. I recall as I stripped off the old undercoat there was a Aqua color. Anybody have a paint color and number? Secondly, anybody have wood templates for late year 1949 Town and Country. In particular I need the rear fender wood. Brian
