  1. Health and family circumstances require me to "simplify my life" and that means letting my car go. She is running fine finally. I have had her these past 19 years and can state that she is practically an "original SURVIVOR." She was sold out of a Chrysler dealership in Indianapolis in 1934 and worked her way East to live in Ohio and then Maryland and across the Mason-Dixon line to the Bedford area of Pennsylvania. She has been with me in Altoona, Pennsylvania for the past 19 years. Along the way, someone redid the interior in black naughide so I say "practically original". We cleaned the fuel tank and fuel line and rebuilt the fuel pump, carbureator, water pump, and put on new brake lines and new spark plugs. We flushed the cooling system and installed new hoses. Her cast manifold was cracked so we were lucky enough to find a replacement. This is the 241.6 cid, 93 bhp "big block". This conventional sedan sold 17,617 units for $845.00 during the height of the Great Depression. This was the year Walter Chrysler introduced his first Airflow and the buying public was ambivalent toward it. The conventional CA arguably saved the company from bankruptcy and it became the Airstream in 1935. In the early 1930's, Chrysler Corporation was noted as the engineering leader in building cars and the CA is a good example. It ushered in hydraulic brakes and a one-piece wind out windshield with shatterproof glass. Sales brochures boasted of independent front suspension and "floating power" (rubber motor mounts). This CA has massive chromed headlamps and the iconic Impala (some say Gazelle) sitting atop the radiator shell. She sports the Art Deco rage of the 30's abundantly. She does have the four suicide doors, lap robe cord, handle straps, and foot rest across the floor for rear passengers. It is one roomy back seat and has rear turn out vents and wind down windows. All the glass is clear but one front wing vent is cracked. $16,000
  2. Wally, sorry it took so long to get back. We had a family crisis to deal with. My 34 CA ash tray is epoxied in place. I did not do it and am stuck with it (no pun intended). Getting ready to sell. Stay tuned.
  3. They could be "after market"s. A ruler along side the photos would help someone looking to buy.
  4. Thanx, Mike. Finally got a chance to get dirty with it and I'll tell you the drainage is so thick and syrupy that no one has touched it since 1934. What a stench! Give me a while and I'll get back to you.
  5. Old girl has a noise in lower gears that disappears in high gear. This is not a grind when engaging gears. Sounds like a rough spot or rust or dryness. Might be time to dismantle and have a look see. What think ye? Can anyone point me to a guide/manual/video I can use to check things out? Thanks for your assistance.
  6. Wish to thank everyone for their input from which I have learned that my 1934 241.6 6 cyl has a half waterjacket with a 25 inch block referred to as "the big block". Have found a potential modern provider of an exhaust manifold for the Chrysler Big Six 25 inch block which will solve my problem. Stay tuned and thanks again!
  7. For vintchry: Would you try sending those photos of the 33CO motor to gibbsjayne@atlanticbb.net?
  8. For vintchry: a 33 CO would be 223.98 cid/83 hp. Would you be willing to take some measurements of the block and the exhaust manifold? That'll have the Stromberg carb, right? Pictures would be absolutely great! So where are you located and what kind of dollars are we talking? Thanks
  9. Thank you kindly for contributing. Your information was helpful and saved me from making a huge mistake. What are your plans for that 34 pictured?
  10. PlyRoadKing, may I request additional photos of the entire engine from both sides? Also, the length of the block? You say it's almost complete, so what is missing? I feel a road trip coming on. Please, the more photos, the better...especially photos of the entire motor.
  11. Fellas, fellas! FOCUS! While I really enjoy the history lesson and find the origins of the word "tarmac" fascinating, the problem at hand is the difference/s, if any, between the 241.6 cid 6 cyl of 1934 and the 241.5 cid 6 cyl of 1935 in the Chrylser line up. What was behind the change? Does anyone know or care to offer speculation? It seems to me that Chrysler Corp was terribly inefficient with their part development/sharing during those depression years and I can't help wondering why.
  12. 20 inches red dot to red dot! Wondering why Chrysler made the 241.6/241.5 modification? The real question here is "Will that exhaust manifold fit my 241.6?" I'm located about 50 miles south of Clearfield, PA on Interstate 80 in the center of PA. So, what's your price on that motor, Andy?
  13. Need a 241.6 cid 6cyl motor or even a 241.5 cid 6cyl motor for parts. Looking for intake and exhaust manifolds to get the old girl back on the macadam. 241.6 was for 1934 only and 241.5 came with the 1935's and stayed around until 1946. Can you help. Present exhaust is badly cracked.
  14. Need intake and exhaust manifolds for a 241.6 cid 6 cyl motor or 241.5 cid 6 cyl motor to get the old girl back on the macadam. Mine is a 34 CA 6. 241.5 came out in 1935 but I think it might fit too. Waddya think?
