  1. Got my relay back from JC Auto a while back and finally got it back on the car today - a quick twist of the key, the hemi was back to running normally again. Can't say enough good things about JC Auto, these guys go above the standard and made my relay look better than new, highly recommend them to anyone! Greg
  2. Hello, When I needed a new tank for my '48 NYer, I went with Rock Valley Antique Auto Parts... https://www.rockvalleyantiqueautoparts.com/catalog.htm I got the 20 gallon in stainless, it was a very nice piece and still doing it's job after 10 years. Don't think you will see it in their catalog, but call them they have or can make just about any tank needed. Hope this helps, Greg
  3. The first photo looks like a '35 Airstream handle to me, quite similar to the one on my CZ. Greg
  4. Well if eBay is any gauge, there is a fair looking set of these on right now for a cool $850.00...the price of unobtanium perhaps... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1935-1936-CHRYSLER-CZ-TAIL-LIGHTS/164461700262?hash=item264aae64a6:g:SXcAAOSw~qNfkFzt
  5. Quite a nice car and looks great! Couple items I noticed: Inexplicably, the latest shots of the interior of this car are mixed up. Some appear to show this car's interior but there are '53 Chrysler pictures interspersed, very odd. Also, I have never seen a '54 with the column shift indicator as this car has. It appears to be a housing with the 'Power Flite' script underneath. All I have looked at, as mine is, are a plainer "RNDL" display. Not saying it's incorrect at all but perhaps this is a late build car right before transitioning to the '55s. Greg
  6. Thanks to all that replied; I had the opportunity to remove it (the relay) last night and definitely something broke inside, as I can hear a small piece rattling around. I shipped it off to JC Auto to have them look at it and ideally rebuild it. It looks simple enough but didn't want to open it up myself. tom1954- $100 is a great price! I must of missed that one. I have seen them for $387-400 range on the few websites that display them. Thinking I am going to drop the starter and rebuild that and the solenoid while I am waiting on the relay return to ensure all is well across the
  7. Hello All, Went out for a ride in my '54 New Yorker on Sunday, and turn the key, no crank, no start! Just the sound of my starter relay clicking (once). I began the troubleshooting, ruled out the battery and cables - lighting and all power items work fine. This is a somewhat regularly driven summertime type car, I last had it out 2 weeks prior without concern. Where I am in the trouble shooting is I fashioned a jumper wire to go from the battery lug on the relay to the "IGN" and "SOL" lugs on the same relay, per the '54 shop manual. When I touch the battery lu
  8. Joe, What a difference a year makes! My '35 tag clearly identifies which codes are which (CZ 4 door Touring, trim code is DG for Deluxe). I guess in '36, the layout changed (see what I mean in the picture). I looked at my Dupont color charts for '36 Chrysler cars, and I see your car could be "Kiltie Green" or "Polo Green Metallic" though I doubt it is "Kiltie Green" as the fenders are supposed to be partially black if that were the case. What is curious though is the paint codes for these colors (309, 311, 312, 313) do not show up on your tag. So the mystery deepens a little!
  9. Bob, Glad to help; should you need any other pictures, I can certainly assist as best I can. I am very fortunate to have this car with it being practically 100% original and complete. I had it on the rack and was just amazed by everything and how the underneath looked; even the GY diamond tread tires date to 1983 and look in really great shape. Did you know the rear window has a roll-up shade? (a Deluxe option I was told) Look carefully at the interior of yours, at the base of the window, there should be a tab, pull it and the shade unrolls and latches on a small hook at the
  10. And lastly for now, I saw some comments regarding the CZ hubcaps earlier in the thread; I removed mine when as I went through some brake and rear axle maintenance several weeks back. Took the opportunity to clean and polish them. Turned out they shine really nicely. The black paint on the "8" appears to be factory, all 4 have them and make each look really unique. Greg
  11. Here is a picture taken that evening; thought it would be neat to experience some night-time driving...pretty cool even if it was tantamount to holding 2 candles up in front of the car....I can see why so many converted these to sealed beam lights later on and even 12v. Someday, I will investigate in making the lamps a bit brighter, cleaning grounds, redoing the reflectors et cetera, but will always retain the original look and 6v system. Apologize for me in the picture, the focus is the car, not myself!! Greg
  12. Everyone, Here are some pictures of the '35 CZ I took last weekend; the first two are when I took it to Starbucks in town, it generated a lot of interest, even as I could tell no one knew what it was...(to be fair, it only has two very small "Chrysler" badges on the front & rear). This was the first real trip we took in the car to date. There is a long and fairly steep hill going back up to my house and I was quite impressed, the 8 took it in 3rd gear all the way! Greg
  13. Joe, Here is a picture of the heater in my '35 CZ; I have no reason to doubt it being a factory item though it looks quite a bit different than yours. It seems by 1936, the Airstreams were becoming more refined and perhaps yours has defrost or a additional variable fan/directional capability. Mine is simply a 2 speed heater that actually works quite well, in fact it will toast you out of the car even on low! Hope this helps at least somewhat, Greg
  14. Here are a few pictures of my door handles, interior and exterior. These are from my '35 CZ and exterior at least does not appear to have quite the decorative flourish as displayed on those in above from Uptowndodge. Could be a difference in model year. In any case, I hope these are of some help to you, good luck!! Greg
  15. Bob, Here are several pictures highlighting the trim piece in the center of the grill. It does appear it's very similar (in width at least) to the pieces running the length of the body. It looks like it may attach differently but if you have extra, you could fabricate something looking very close to original. I also took a shot of the piece that covers the crank opening, it is removable, and then it just clips back on when put back in place. Perhaps you could just make one longer strip as it may be easier. I hope these are of some help to you!!
