    1936 Dodge Side Mount Fender

    Wow, how in the world did you find that! If you ever come across some "b" pillar door latches for the 4 doors that are unbroken please let me know. Thanks.

    1936 Dodge Side Mount Fender

    According to my march '36 parts book all standard front fenders fit all of the passenger car models. On the welled fenders there is a note. All welled fenders up serial number 4112531 are the same but there is a change after that number. My book shows that the fender numbers after serial no.4112531 are new parts for 1936 which indicates to me that the earlier cars may have had '35 front fenders or there was a production design change after that number. Sorry, but I have no idea what that change is or how you could identify a particular fender. It also may have nothing to do with fitment. Make sure that it fits before you make the final sale and heed 35cz8's advice as most of the mounting hardware is very difficult to locate. Good hunting.

    Roof on 1936 Dodge

    My gasket, when i inspected it closely, looked exactly as Vic described. I did dig some out and it looked more like the gasket might have been rubber but deteriorated and separated over time. I don't think anyone really knows what they used. I've been looking and experimenting on a left over roof section to find a good , paintable sealer that will get firm but remain flexible. So far no real luck! I'm not even sure that the original seal was installed prior to paint or after, maybe someone here knows.
  4. Try Restoration Specialties as they have a large offering of clips.You can look at their catalog online at If you see something that might work, give them a call and they will send you samples.

    Roof on 1936 Dodge

    What body style do you have as I don't know if all the tops had the same clearances. I have a 4 door TS and have used Knobless' seal which does fit very well. The only issue I had was the design. If you are keeping the car original then the top overlap cap must be cut off to be authentic. The original seals, I believe, were an "L" shaped seal that came in 4 pieces.The side extension came flush to the top. The parts book lists them separately for 2 door sedans, 4 door sedans and coupes. Presumably because of the different lengths. The repro seal has the top like the '35 fabric tops used. It does fit very well and is an excellent replacement for the driver car and will save a lot of extra work allthough I'm not sure if he still has any.

    Help - '90 Eldorado Teves ABS troubles

    Most of the times when I had trouble with my ABS brakes, I simply pulled the ABS fuse and disabled them. I don't like ABS brakes anyway as I think that the system can cause loss of control more often than not especially on ice. That's just my opinion.
  7. Wow Roger, that is amazing. I think we all can really appreciate your skill, attention to detail and tenacity to complete a project 9 years in the making! I wish that I had 1/10 of your knowledge and skill! The car is beautiful! It's sad to see this project end in a way but we can look forward to the work on the Avanti. Would there be any way to keep this thread active , other than continuing it, so it can be shared with others? Again, great work and thanks for sharing it!

    Dodge 1935 v.s 1936 frame

    My March 16, 1936 parts book states that all frames are the same except the 7 passenger sedan. This is an early edition, maybe the convert. frame was strengthened later in production but I'm not aware of that.

    1932 Ford Model B Pickup - $15,500

    If this is an early truck, it might be possible to have an "A" engine from new as Ford liked to use up extra parts on trucks. It's possible but unlikely. Still a great looking little truck. Don't see many of these around.

    Dodge 1935 v.s 1936 frame

    The frames are not the same shape even though they might appear to be in pictures. You would be wiser to find a '36 frame. All frames for all passenger car body styles are the same except for the 7 passenger sedan. Of course there are the LHD and RHD options.

    Beltline molding fuzzies

    If you have the old ones, Restoration Specialties can make new ones for you if they don't already have them. Since it's a Ford try Dennis Carpenter.

    Murphy Color Samples

    I was searching for paint for my "36 Dodge, the Avon Green color. I had old Murphy color samples but was told that the codes no longer meant anything.The modern colors that were said to be a match were too dark with too much metallic. I did have an inner fender with a lot of the original paint and took it to some paint companies, but all they could do, even with the computer, would be to match it to the closest existing color. I did find a Valspar dealer near Pittsburgh PA that took the time to match it by eye. Took almost a month but his mixture was spot on. I sprayed some right onto the panel along side the original and you can't tell the difference. It is, however, a little darker than I expected, as the original samples on the body and charts looked lighter. Out in direct sunlight though, it looks great, so I wouldn't put a lot of faith in those old color charts. I was glad to find someone who took the time to do the work that most places couldn't. Good hunting!

    To use undercoating inside or not

    Thanks for the advice. I really didn't want to use anything that has a silicone base as silicone is difficult to remove. Interesting idea for mold making too!
