  1. If there is no serious rust on the skins, no parts missing or broken $1500 to $2000 wouldn't be out of line. IMHO. Yea, right, "forget the gas pump" and SHIP IT TO ME!!! I'll dispose of it for you...LOL:eek: Rod
  2. Wish I was closer.:mad: The pump is a Gilbert-Barker model 176, 178, or 179 10 gallon visible/gravity pump from the mid to late 20s. The oval tag will specify model and serial number. Rod van Pelt
  3. Could be a bicycle part. It is, however, made of heavy pot metal instead of light weight tin usually found on bikes. It weighs 1 lb. and takes a threaded base bulb. The only thing I can read on the base of the broken bulb is "MAZDA" and possibly "15". Rod:)

  5. I would like to know if anyone has any info on this light/horn combo that was mounted in front of the windshield on a 1930 Dodge Brothers DA Deluxe coupe when my Dad bought it in 1951. It does not have any markings or numbers on it that I can find. It is probably a 6 volt. It measures 2 3/4 in. diameter, 5 1/4 in. long and 3 in. tall. I don't know if it is a DB option or an after market add on. I think it's kind of unique to be, I believe, a horn/light combo, as the inner part resembles a horn. The lens is missing but believe it was convex and glass. Here are some pics. Thanks fo

  7. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery, Doug! Follow the dr.'s orders and you'll be enjoying that DA for many more years down the road. Rod
  8. I'm 2 hrs away. Don't think I'll be down that way for a couple weeks.
  9. I asked a bodyman "friend" of mine last night what he would charge to paint my DB 30 DA coupe. He said 10K. I said WOW!!! He said just the paint would be 3K and goes up some every other month. Guess I'll leave her the way she is. Rod:)
  10. I looked for a SN# plate, number on engine or number stamped on chassis but couldn't find one.
  11. Here's a link you might enjoy. The origin of DeSoto cars (a Chrysler division) What a beautiful car this was and could be: File:'29 DeSoto (Auto classique).JPG - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Thanks, Rod
  12. Personally, I think it would look nicer restored like this: File:'29 DeSoto (Auto classique).JPG - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Just my 2 cents worth. Rod
  13. Since the car is mostly complete, it would be great to see it restored. Here's a link to the history and development of the DeSoto. The origin of DeSoto cars (a Chrysler division) Thanks, Rod
  14. I didn't ask the owner of pawn shop how long the car had been on the lot or if the owner was firm on his/her price. I would imagine the seller would be open to an offer but can't speak for them. Some questions about headlights, cowl lights, tail light, bumper parts, visor, spare tire, etc. missing. I was told the car was complete except for the gas cap and the crank. Maybe those parts are all in boxes somewherd for safe keeping. Best bet is to call:970-622-0219 for more info. Rod
  15. I talked by phone to the owner of the Uptown Pawn shop at 970-622-0219. He told me it is a consignment deal with an asking price of $3800. It is a 1929, has a title, motor rolls over by hand, starter spins but doesn't engage flywheel, missing gas cap and crank. I noticed a lot of wood needs to be replaced above the doors. I hope this helps. Thanks, Rod van Pelt

  17. I happened to see this Desoto on a trailer in Loveland , Co. today in the lot of a pawn shop where several other cars were for sale. This is not my car but if you're interested in this car, email me and I'll see if I can get you in contact with the owner. Thanks. Rod van Pelt vanpeltrk@yahoo.com Thanks, Rod

  19. Very interesting video especially when you think of 2/3 of the buildings were destroyed and 1/3 of those people were killed by 1945 by the end of WWII. Thanks for posting. Rod van Pelt
  20. Cool video, Gurra!! Thanks for sharing. Rod van Pelt
  21. Is this what you mean? I thought these went on when brakes were applied, but could be wrong. Did anyone mention early 40s Buick? Thanks, Rod
  22. Kevin, Love the color of your car! Thanks for the pics. I use Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket For me, it's easy and free, so far. I can email pics from my phone to photobucket, get the "IMG code" of that pic, copy/paste it to a "reply" on this forum and many others, and it's there. Rod
  23. Great story and AWESOME Dodge! Love to see more pics. Thanks for sharing! Rod van Pelt
