  1. Hi, there are several variations on the '33-34 mopar tanks. Do you know what the gas capacity is? What condition is it in and your price? Thanks, Jeff
  2. Hi, I have a UTE touring made in Australia, or what we would call a Phaeton in the US in 1933. I have had it for about 20 years but never put it on the road due to a need for an engine rebuild (slight knock in cyl 6). It came out of a museum in the Phoenix area.

By 1932, for the CP-8, they corrected the error and redesigned the shaft to extend into the pilot bushing solving the excess stress on the front bearing. I have rebuilt two of these transmissions and driven thousands of miles in my roadster and have never experienced an older transmission shift in the same manne

The CM model has fixed louvers. Earlier I read a comment regarding using the CD-8 4 spd transmission as a form of overdrive, the four speed is a 3 spd with an extra compound low gear, great for steep hills at slow speed and driving in a parade, otherwise fairly useless. The rear end has 4.10 gears and really needs some form of overdrive. I know others have asked about the 1937-39 Mopar 6 c
