  1. I looked into reproducing these early die castings using investment casting by having the part read into a computer; then making some corrections ( to remove the cracks and ajust for the swelling ) via the computer then 3D printing the part in wax.
  2. From the little I know, the zinc (pot metal) metal is alloyed with lead and this causes internal granular disintegration (ie crystallization). The lead is alloyed to act as a lubricant in the die casting.
  3. To see pictures of the 28 Chrysler go to the Our Cars and Restoration Projects and search for "1928 series "72" Chrysler Royal sedan"
  4. I also have a 1928 series 72 Chrysler Royal Sedan of which is in the process of a ground up restoration.
  5. The Studebaker has been sold....still have the 31 Plymouth, the 28 Lincoln, and the 28 Chrysler "72"
  6. This is a solid car; for the enjoyment of the driving experience; although, it could be restored for the show circuit.
  7. By the way; my Lincoln is a driver not a show car. Future owners can do repairs/restoration of various parts; however, preservation, HPOF, is what I have been basing my ownership on.
  8. The technology is extant to read in and reproduce sand castings. Check out ProMetal RTC and view their 3D sand printing machine in action. Repro blocks could be produced for less than 12K.
  9. My series 72 has 74703-1 on it with the NH...it is a "Red Head".
  10. By the way Jan,....I have better than 70 mph in my PA; and a friend of mine with a restored PB roadster has done in excess of 70 mph also!
  11. The body is aluminum and the fenders, hood and splash aprons are steel.
