    There is only one wire 6/6.5" wheel in The Hollander 1952, a 1932-33 Nash 1090, 1190, Adv. & Amb. 8, but it is an 18" wheel. 

     

    What about earlier? Maybe the year or two earlier it was a 19" wheel.

    A LOT of 1931 wheels were 19".


  2. Painting a vehicle in non-original colors is fairly common among non-purists. A purist will tell you that it detracts from the value. It is an extensive thing to repaint back to original colors if already done in non-original colors and that may or may not reflect on the value depending upon the buyer (if selling).

    I, likewise, am searching for a repair manual and a parts manual for a 1931 CM6.  Any resources would help...

    There is a Master Parts List out there, but you will not find a 1931 Chrysler shop/repair manual as they do not exist. Never did as far as I have been able to research.

    Didn't even think about that.

    Off to Google Earth.

    Thanks!

     

    Looking at Google Earth and Street View, it appears that the cars are gone.

    The older house that was there is now a mini-mansion so who knows what ever happened to the cars.

    I can see the pile of stainless steel wheel covers in my back yard from their satellite....

    It was the other way around. Chrysler had Ghia build show cars and prototypes to their designs and drawings because they could build them faster and cheaper in Italy than union labor in Detroit.

    The Karmann Ghia was copied off a Chrysler show car they had built a few years earlier. Ghia never denied this, although they didn't exactly brag about it either.

    Thanks for the lesson. I knew they had some kind of relationship. A friend of mine owned this Chrysler Ghia bodied car....for some reason, he removed the gunsight taillights and installed 1963 Riviera taillights in the rear panel.

    I think the early 60's T-birds are very under appreciated.

    Back in the 80's I used to pass by a house all the time that had around 6 early 60's T-birds parked in a side yard.

    I have not been back through that same area for decades so I have no idea if the cars are still there.

     

     

    You can search the property on Google Earth and see if the cars are still there.
