  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 sn
  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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. May be irrelevant but on my 1940 Dodge D14 that is the high beam indicator light. Phil
  15. 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
  16. I think that is one beautiful Crosley. They are so cute . Great job. Phil
  17. I have purchased many parts for my '40 and '41 Dodges from Andy Bernbaum: http://www.oldmoparts.com/ Good luck. Phil
  18. I've known 'about' them since the early 1970's and have never heard a bad thing about them. I believe that Ron's son and a business partner run it now. Ron was a Pierce-Arrow guru but had a host of interesting cars. Phil
  19. Go down to the 'Our Cars & Restoration Projects' section of this forum and read through these two threads: Avanti R2, 1963, refresh Avanti Rescue These will give you a good idea as to what can be involved with Avanti's Phil
  20. Congratulations on the senior award John. I talked to you briefly on the Hershey show field the day you received the junior award. Beautiful car that is well deserving of the awards. Phil
  21. I was going to ask the very same question. Barry? Phil
