  1. Beautiful 38 Royal! I can’t help you with Canadian production breakdown, but 2,850 Royals were built in Windsor, Canada. My father bought our 1938 Desoto Rumble Seat Coupe in 1969 or 70 and it is Canadian built as well (it had a total production US & Canada of 38 - 27 US built & Canadian production of 11 and ours is body #11. 1938 was last year for the rumble seat so it is the last Desoto Rumble Seat Coupe ever produced in Canada). I’m curious to see the production plate on your car as I believe they could be the same colour (if yours is original). The paint code on mine is 642 or possibly 648 as the last # is not stamped clearly. Any info we can share would be greatly appreciated. Finding information on Canadian built pre-war Chrysler products can be extremely difficult, so if we can assist one another would be nice.
  2. I would also recommend Kris Arneson. I just received my matts from him recently & they're a perfect match to the originals. Kris was awesome to deal with and explained everything that I asked. Yes, they are pricey, but worth it & you'll have to wait.
  3. could you please e-mail your contact details to me please
  4. I have a 1938 Desoto Rumble Seat Coupe that was built in Windsor, Ontario. The tag on the firewall clearly says paint code 642. I have been unable to find any information on the paint codes on Canadian built cars. I believe the colour is GEM GREEN (car's original paint is green). Can anyone help with confirmation?
  5. Hi I'm looking for some information on how the radio was wired into car. The radio head has 2 wires coming out of it that were cut off (both same colour). Does anyone know how/where these wires are to connect (to radio chassis?). If someone has a Chrysler with the radio installed I believe it would be the same - photos would be great, if possible.
