  1. I'll see if I can get one, the problem is the tag has some corrosion on it and I'm not sure how legible it is.
  2. thanks, I checked and the engine number does start with a "U", is there any way to tell if it's the original for sure?
  3. Hey guys, I'm trying to help out a buddy who has a 1929 Plymouth 2 door sedan for sale, the car is in very good condition and mostly original. it starts and moves on it's own but will need some brake work to be usable. it still has what we believe is the original motor and trans in it. I don't think the upholstery is original but I'm pretty sure the headliner is, the roof looks pretty new and in great shape. he bought it to use as a start to a hot rod but would rather not cut up great mostly rust free car. he's asking $9500.00 OBO for it and it's located in Chesapeake Va. I can find out pretty much any information you desire or I can put you in contact with him about it.
  4. here is a picture of an instrument cluster that is identical to his. thanks,
  5. Hey Guys, A good friend of mine just picked up a nice '29 essex "super six" complete car, it's in decent shape for it's age but it's missing the amp gauge from the cluster. does anyone have one they'd like to sell? please let me know as I'm trying to help him locate one thanks.
  6. Hey guys, does anyone know where I can find any information about my '29 Nash, I'm looking for dimensions mainly such as head room, width, length ----that kind of stuff also, how does the 2 door body compare to the Ford model A body of the same type? thanks,
  7. Hey All, I've got a really good friend of mine that is selling his custom built '63 C-10 --- I know this truck very well and no corners were cut on this build.
  8. Hey guys, I've got a couple parts that were going to go on my '54 Chieftain but I sold the car before they got installed. shipping is NOT included but can be arranged. I'll be going down to Charlotte "spring auto fair" and can bring the bumper with me if we make a deal prior to the trip. 1. perfect condition rear bumper fresh from the chrome shop ----$400.00 2. near mint lighted hood ornament --$300.00 3. rebuilt Jaeger clock ---$50.00 4. excellent condition hood spear (passenger side) -- could use a little polishing but otherwise in good shape ---$25.00 if interested please contact me through my email ( --- thanks
  9. Hey gang, well, I started cutting out the bad parts of the floor pans so I can patch them and as things usually go, there was way more rot than I expected so this is what I ended up with. by the time I got done cutting things out I figured it would be easier and better to just replace everything. and, since I can not find anyone who sells floor pans for the car I'm going to have to make my own. this is a blessing in disguise as it will give me the chance to build the floor like I want them and get some practice with the new bead roller. let the fun begin.
  10. Thanks Ben, as for the engine, it's a 454 ---and yes I know, should have kept it Buick but finding a 455 around these parts is next to impossible, besides I KNOW this thing runs and drives great as I was able to test it prior to pulling it from the vehicle.
  11. Hey gang, I know it's been a while since I updated my project but rest assured I HAVE been busy in it. I'v spent some time waiting for parts to arrive which worked as a domino affect, I couldn't order one part until l got the previous one bought and installed and so on and so on. I found a rear end for the car that was close enough in width to make the use of wheel adapters possible (needed to change the lug pattern anyway, once I got the correct adapters installed I was able the put the rear under the car and measure for the triangulated 4 link kit, then I had to wait for that to show up and get it installed so I could order my coil over shocks (still waiting for them), I made some temporary supports to take their place to check ride height. while I was waiting for those parts to show up I went ahead and ordered a set of stainless headers for the big block. I also spent a bunch of time stripping out the rest of the car including all the door hardware, seats, dash and wiring harness which made it MUCH easier to remove and clean up all the old sound deadener under the dash. I still need to clean the roof of that junk but it's just a bit of work to get it off. next I'll be cutting out and replacing all the rotted metal on the body (which will take a while).
  12. Hey guys, Time for another update, got the engine mount parts in the other day so I was able to get the mounts installed and the motor positioned in it's permanent home. I think it fits really well and should have plenty of room for accessories and maintenance. I still need to fabricate the trans mount but that should be relatively easy compared to some of the other fab work that is needed. I'm going tomorrow to pick up another rear end for the car as I can no longer use the "torque tube" set up. it's quite a bit newer and should be a cake walk to convert to disk brakes. I need to get it in place and start mocking up the triangulated 4 link set up for it, I'm still undecided if I'm going to run air bags or just some good coil over shocks. either way, I'll make it work.
