  1. Dodge still had the side opening hood in 1940. That changed in 1941. Phil
  2. Let's see. It'll be 19 more years and I am 72. Possible but not likely.
  3. Here is a photo of my 1940 Dodge. My wife's grandfather purchased this as a 6 month old used car in 1940. I dragged it out of a field on the family farm in 1968 and spent 3 decades resurrecting it. Phil
  4. My first Hershey was 1979 and I didn’t know enough to bring a camera. There was a very nice 1940 Dodge sedan in a two-tone green in the show that I lusted after. Anyone have any photos from 1979 that they could post? thx Phil
  5. Oct 2012 with my 1940 Dodge in southern Ontario.
  6. Fact - I bought 'my' plates in 1973 and they are still on the car with 'current' sticker and 'current' sticker location. The only point that I was making in my original post is that the plate on the Kissel has a number very close in sequence to mine and thus the plate must have been originally purchased very close in time to mine. Not meaning to deflect this thread to discuss the history of Ontario's historic plates. Phil
  7. Very interesting. My 1941 Canadian Dodge still has it's HVC-320 licence plates (plated by me in 1973 in Hamilton Ontario). Very close in number to this one. Phil
  8. I use an eye dropper on my '40 Dodge. A total of 19 eye dropper fulls through the vent tube gives enough gas for starting. :-). And... it's not messy. Phil
  9. A simple question for the 40/41 Dodge and Plymouth owners. How far does your front pass. side door lock key turn before the key can be removed? I have just changed out the door lock (and also the latch assembly) on my '40 Dodge. I put the key in, turn it 1/2 turn (CW) and the door locks but the key will not release and it will not turn any further. The lock tumbler itself requires a full turn to release the key. The lock on the original latch assembly that I removed also will only turn 1/2 turn. I would normally check my '41 but it is still away in winter storage (and based on the amount of snow outside this is a good thing!). The part number is different for the 42-47 door lock so it is possible that I have the wrong lock for my '40 or maybe I have assembled something wrong? Any lock experts out there? Phil
  10. FWIW, Both my '40 and '41 Dodges have body coloured wheels (front, back and inside). The 41 is bottom of the line. The 40 is top of the line. Phil
  11. Post it on the Corvair Center forum at http://corvaircenter.com/phorum/list.php?1 and you will get the opinions of plenty of Corvair people. Phil
