  1. 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
  2. Here you go. Note year on my plate - 73
  3. See my post above re my 1973 HVC 320 plates.
  4. 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

    My Dodgy 49

    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

    1940 Dodge Door Lock

    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

    Paint Wheels dodge d24 1948

    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

    six volt overdrive solenoid

    If it's an R-10 overdrive try calling Studebaker International ((317) 462-3124). They have new 6V solenoids. I have one on my 1940 Dodge and it has been working great since 2011. Phil
  11. This is very interesting. I recently put quarters on a '64 Tempest (now sold) and had a horizontal seam at about the same position as yours. I crimped the body side along the seam and laid the new panel into it. The problem that I had was I TIG welded the seam (4 in. lengths of weld) and ended up with it sucking in along the full length. Obviously too much heat. I then spent many hours hammering out the seam to get it as straight as possible. You guys obviously know what you are doing. Great work. Phil

    New TV Show! This Saturday Night! Don't Miss!

    I just went to set my t.v. recorder for this show and discovered that my Velocity channel in Canada does not air this program. How disappointing. Phil
