  1. Atlas was Esso/Exxon's in-house brand. It was around until at least the 1980's.
  2. any peculiarities to especially look for in a 67 300 I'm planning to see? 440 vs 440 TNT, what else?
  3. I had heard of the colored tires before the article. They were not commercially successful, obviously, but are real. Uncolored SBR rubber is off-white. Most common mineral fillers are white, plus the boundary scattering of having a filler. Carbon black proved to be an advantageous filler, so we are used to tires being black.
  4. At the end of the day It seems the obvious question about all this is: what's really left of the Ridler that's still '39 Olds.....? Exactly - it's a pile of parts. More the pity if the only 39 60 convt ended like this
  5. Of course it's the only one built. All the other ones built have flat sixes. I'm very sceptical of a medium-priced production model havinga build of one.
  6. I think the 245 was used from 38 - 48, basically all the later sixes except 37
  7. If it's the white one behind it, the interior and transmission conditions are very important
  8. I don't mean to be flip with this, but there was a factory mirror (even harder to find) that replaced that cowl trim SS piece, and that would solve the issue also.. I also had to search for the exact piece you seek.
  9. It was a nitrocellulose-coated fabric. Given that chemistry, I doubt its availability now.
  10. The dimensions may be different but it's not because of which measuring system is used. An object is the same size regardless of what units you use to measure it.
  11. loks like mid-late 50's Chrysler Corp gear selector
  12. good advice on lots of photos. And lots of interior photos! A pet peeve of mine is the ad with 15 exterior shots, 1 interior, 1 engine bay
  13. instead of the most people, the goal is the most interested buyers. I would think the CCCA and Lincoln Club would provide a small but focused group.
  14. The rubber splash shield on the leading edge of the rear fender is only on vehicles with the running board delete option, but is I believe common to 1900-1901-1903 series (110-120-SWB 160). The belt molding piece on the cowl is also common to at least those three. The rocker molding looks like it is the same as the running board vertical edge molding but it's not. Remember that your car has a shorter hood than but a common body with the 127" wb eights.
