  1. I've posted in VCCA and other forums as well. Looking for p/n 328659 low speed gear for countershaft (cluster gear) for my 1929 Chevrolet transmission. Same low speed gear was used from mid 1925 to 1931. The gear has 18 teeth and measures 2 3/4" diameter and 1 1/2" long. Attached are pages from 4 cyl and 6 cyl part books for ID. Thanks in advance.



  2. Looking for a GM part number 328659 Low Speed Countershaft (Cluster) gear for 1920s and 1930s Pontiac and Chevrolet. Chev used in all three speed transmissions from mid1925 to 1931. Pontiac used in some years around 1929. Gear measures 2 3/4" diameter and 1 1/2" long with 18 teeth. I've attached pictures of the pages from Chevrolet 4 and 6 cyl parts books for reference.

    Beautiful condition !  Yes, that appears to be the correct seat and adjusting mechanism.  I have some red and white "warning" stickers that were reproduced from an original.  Let me know if you would like to have one.

    I'm not aware of any stickers used on this seat? Nothing was on the original and as it is covered with mohair no sticker would stay on it? Anyway if you provide a picture of what you have  I will certainly look at it.


  4. I needed three but had to get 10 done for the price break. I have six extra available if anyone needs to replace their corroded, damaged or missing plate. These were nailed to the floor sill by the front seat on the passenger side. Used on all GM Canada production from at least 1929 to 1931. I have been informed that the Regina plant opened in 1928 so expect this is suitable for 1928 at the earliest. I believe was used later but have not confirmed yet ( haven't seen an actual plate from later years). $120 US plus shipping cost.


  5. I had a small batch of these made for my own cars. Used on all Canadian production from about 1928 (I believe the Regina plant opened in 1928) to at least 1932. I have confirmed used from 1929 to 31 inclusive. Haven't seen outside that window yet. The couple of extras I have are selling at $120 US each plus cost to ship.

    Great looking Number Plates.  A great deal for someone who does not have one.

    On 1930 Pontiac's built in Regina they were nailed to the left body sill between the seat track and the sill plate.  Attached is a picture of the original on my Pontiac after 89 years and 500,000 miles..

    The location you mention makes more sense. My sill was powder so exact location could not be determined. Could you post a picture showing it's location on your Pontiac?


  7. Mine is a 1929 Chevrolet and I seen one on a 1931 Chevrolet. I would hazard it was used on all production including La Salle and Cadillac as well as Oakland and Marquette. There were only 5515 Pontiacs built in all of Canada in 1930. Here is my original next to a new one. The plastic protector is still on it so it looks a little odd.


  8. I had some made for my own cars and have a few left over. Used for sure from 1929 to 1931 but probably back as far as 1926 and as late as 1932. These were nailed to the floor sill ahead of the drivers seat on the passenger side as the car rolled off the line and had model, serial number and engine number stamped onto it. Etched brass as original. $120.00 US plus shipping cost.

  9. All good info. For the most part I have found cars that did not have a seat back mounted ash tray had them on the sides of the back seat and vice versa. Chev did this in 1931 and many other years. My 1929 Chevrolet had one ashtray on the back of the front seat for rear passengers. No tray in front. So far aside from the ash tray differences (and material choice for upholstery) it looks like Fisher used the same front seat frame in Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and possibly Buick sedans from 1929 to 1931. All these years used the same adjuster mechanism. I've completed a new frame for my 1929 and as I have patterns I wanted to know what other models this could be used in in case anyone ever needed one. I will be building a new assembly for my 1929 Cabriolet and it looks like the same was used for Cabriolet/coupe for 29 to 31 as well.

    Also surprising are the number of "dress up" aftermarket bits and pieces that are available for the Chevrolet and how few for the upscale, upmarket Pontiac.  I guess quality does not need gussying up???

    Volume. More Chevs then Pontiacs. The quality was mostly in the mechanicals. Both had Fisher bodies so not much difference there.

  11. Thank you gentlemen. Good information to know. This one is for a 1929 Chevrolet Sedan. Surprising that the lower priced Chev had an ash tray as standard. Similar seat assembly can be built without ashtray mount for Pontiac. Looking at Olds for 1929 I believe the same assembly was used.  I guess Fisher did a little cross compatibility and used different upholsterydepending on where the seat was going. I wonder now about Buick.
