  1. Steve, I see the Pebble Beach preservation class in your future.
  2. It’s not either as they used the identical instrument cluster.
  3. I'm surprised some of you on here don't know your CCCA history. Some of these "middle of the road" Chryslers WERE accepted in the CCCA early on. Attached are photos of a 1933 Chrysler Imperial CQ convertible sedan. The black & white photo was taken in 1954, while the color one was taken in 1959. The 1955 Packard 400 hardtop in the background was a 4 year old used car at the time. This Chrysler was all original at the time, even the top. The person who owned it in the 1950's & 60's was president of the local CCCA region for a couple years. He bought the car from the original owner who received it as a high school graduation present. Then sometime in the 1960's the CCCA "de classified" the middle series of Chrysler's from the club. Imagine being the president of your region & having your car "de classified." I don't think he was too happy about it. Luckily he had another top of the line Classic to fall back on, but that's another story.
  4. Since it's been established its not Stutz, why don't you post pictures of it up in the General Forum up top so more people will see it?
  5. If it takes more than ten fingers to count the number produced, then it’s not that rare.
  6. Yes, the whole rear of the body tilts back and the top folds under it. Brunn called it a Riviera phaeton. Three were built I believe, and all three exist. The tan car pictured above was originally black, and was a staple at early Northern & Central Ohio AACA, VMCCA, and CCCA events in the 1950's & 60's. BC Hartline painted it tan in the 50's sometime, and he used to drive the hell out of it too. It was not a trailer queen. It still had the original brown leather interior in it last time I saw it.
  7. That car has been for sale for years.
  8. I saw that 1936 Lincoln in Los Angeles last June and bought some parts that were in it. It was part of what was left of Ernie Foster's stuff.
  9. This Ford was at Hershey this past fall. What exactly is it?
  10. The block really isn't worth anything. The heads have a little value.
  11. Ed is 100% correct. And on Stutz, some of the bodies that were built in 1929/30 were not used up until 1932/33. The car in the ad is a batch production body, not a custom. Here's the same body as the subject car in a 1931 MB chassis. And here's the same body again on a 1931/32 DV chassis.
  12. The dash layout is correct for a car with a factory in dash radio, just the radio currently installed is wrong. It's supposed to have 2 large bakelite dials in the center. Stutz relocated all the instruments to make room for it. Someone replaced the original radio with newer one, and probably replaced the dash cover piece to cover up the 2 large holes that would have been there from the original dials. The photo below is what it's supposed to look like.
  13. Yes, that looks like a 1932 Buick taillight. I think the bracket is from something else.
