  1. Black wheels would be proper on a black car. They look nice in my opinion. Greg
  2. Where are you located? I am in Minnesota. My upholstery shop did my 32 CH Imperial for around $3500, labor only. I bought my material from SMS, and I don't remember what that ran, but it wasn't that bad as I recall. Send them your samples, if they are for sure original pieces, and they will match them better than anyone else. Greg
  3. And then there's me. I am so loyal to Chrysler that I won't even buy a Dodge or Plymouth. That 31 Chrysler coupe is better than any Packard or Auburn in my eyes. And although you may not agree, it is more rare. There are more Packards and Auburns and even Duesenbergs than there are early thirties Chryslers, especially the big Imperials. The early thirties Chrysler eights are some of the most underrated cars in their vintage, both in engineering and in beauty. Just my two cents worth. Obviously, I am biased.
  4. I think what Keiser was referring to was on the Chrysler, the car contained very little wood. The 31 Chrysler only contains wood where interior trim pieces need to be attached, and of course across the top opening. The basic structure of the car was not wood, like a lot of cars in the day, but made of steel.
  5. My friend has a 1960 Chrysler Saratoga two door hardtop for sale. The car has a lot of rust on the rockers, floor, and headlight areas. It is complete and does run. He is looking for $3500.00. Email me at Impconsent@aol.com if interested. Car is in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Greg Biskey
  6. The bluegreen color shown by Gunsmoke is indeed the correct color for eight cylinder cars from 31 to 33, both standard eights and Imperial eights. However, the four and six cylinder engines prior to 1930 were finished in black. This is according to specs put out by the WPC Club in 1994.
  7. Sorry to hear you had trouble getting information about the meet. It shouldn't be difficult. I can't make it this year but next year is a certain. I had some Town & Country scripts reproduced for the tailgates on my 55 New Yorker wagon and I think they go on 56 wagons as well. If you are interested in purchasing one, I have only two left. Let me know and have a great time at the meet. Greg
  8. I hate to see you do this after all the hard work you've done, but I fully understand your predicament. It has gotten nearly impossible to restore one of these cars unless you start with a fairly complete car with all the right parts. In 1992 when I did my roadster, I found one of the last complete parts cars left and it was invaluable in getting the roadster finished. It takes extremely deep pockets to finish an incomplete car. I thought when you started it was a big chew. Greg
  9. The 38 imperial is a stunning car. I have few parts if you need. Greg
  10. Those are the ones I have on all my cars and the only size I have ever seen. Greg
  11. I have the whole three piece manifold from a 38 Imperial. I will try to find it. We just moved this last year and everything is no longer where it used to be.
  12. I obtained a 48 T & C conv. Thanks anyway.
  13. Exactly right. The underside of the head had a tighter fit area for combustion. The first aluminum heads I believe were available for the 34 Airflows.
  14. I have a whole bunch of new head gaskets for 31s. I will look at them and see if I have the one you need. Greg
  15. I have some 1936 C-8 parts for sale. I have them on ebay right now. Included are an exhaust and intake manifold with carb; clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout fork; spark plug wire loom; flywheel cover; and fuel pump. Not listed on ebay but available is an engine head, and an overdrive transmission with shifter. If anything doesn't sell on ebay, email me and they will be available. Prices are negotiable. I bought all this extra "stuff" years ago and do not need it anymore. The manifolds are very nice. The heat riser is not stuck, nor is the choke assembly on the carburetor. Email is Impconsent@aol.com. Thanks,' Greg
