  1. 1935 Plymouth should fit, I believe (and of course Dodge or DeSoto if you want to go that route).
  2. I have seen these handles on restored 1930 Chryslers and DeSotos.
  3. My book shows no difference between model wheelbases. They are all 114 inches by what it says.
  4. There is no registry for people who cruise in "original condition", "as found" or "unrestored condition" cars or trucks. The Horseless Carriage Club of America and the WPC Club (Walter Percy Chrysler) are two of the best clubs I know for "bringing what you got". A lot of us out there cannot afford a rotisserie restoration and must work on them as we cruise or simply keep them up well enough to drive. Clubs as small as the "State of Jefferson Antique Auto Club" here in southern Oregon welcomes all condition cars. Heck, you don't even have to OWN an old car to be in our club. Some unmolested or unrestored cars are better to not restore. A lot of the original condition cars are where we get our important information from as far as what they did at the factory and how they did it. As on the Antiques Roadshow...sometimes the patina is better left on the object to retain it's originality and worth.
  5. What parts are you looking for? I have a few extra '31 DH6 parts and I know a few other '31 Dodge guys with stuff. John keiser31@charter.net 1931 Dodge Brothers DH6 business coupe (wire wheels) 1931 Dodge Brothers DH6 business coupe (wood wheels)
  6. alex_houston: Actually, Dodge started in 1914. They were "Dodge Brothers" from 1914 to 1938. Chrysler bought Dodge Brothers in 1928.
  7. There was NO fine print on the form where I tried to enter online. It said "Sorry we are not accepting entries at this time.", so I backed out using the "back" arrow. I went to my email and there was a message from P.M.Magazine thanking me for my subscription. My wife (and probably the neighbors) soon heard my dismay, to put it mildly.
  8. What car do you need a radiator for?
  9. Yep....those subscription rascals! I went online to apply for the $25,000.00 Popular Mechanics' "garage makeover". Next thing I know I got their magazine subscription in my lap! Oh, the hassle to just cancel. I called and emailed and finally, after many attempts, I was able to cancel. Beware entering any contest that has a magazine or publication involved.
  10. The Model T woody is called a "depot hack" or "huckster", I believe.
  11. The car I saw was in San Diego a few years ago and it didn't have welled fenders either. The rack had extension brackets of some sort on it that held it out past the rear mounted spare tire. The rack looked typically Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth or DeSoto of the early thirties with the folding abilities....just longer mounting brackets. The owner said it was original to the car and that he was the second owner of the car.
  12. I have seen a trunk rack on a DL, but no trunk. I believe you could get a trunk rack as a "dealer option" in '32. I don't think that Dodge offered an actual trunk to put on it.
  13. In my 40+ years of research, I have found that the carry over 1931s into 1932 started with the ram and from then on, Dodge stayed with the ram. The "shooting star" (as I refer to it as) cap was basically an early 1931 through 1/2 to 3/4 of the year and then went to the ram. That is why the cap I need is so rare. Plus the fact that it was right in the middle of the depression. If you have any extra parts for '31 DB DH6s, let me know and we can possibly trade or deal in some way. I am looking for a coupe lower window molding, drag link and various other parts. I realize that the following photo is of a mock-up model for preview of the '31 DH6s, but it still holds true as far as my research has taken me. John
  14. Sorry about that. Let's see if I figured it out with THIS copy.
  15. $6,500.00 is waaaaaaay too much. More like $2,500.00 with all of the missing, broken and non-original stuff.
  16. What you have there is an aftermarket hood ornament that someone has attached a mirror to (mirror looks like Mustang or Barracuda). There are supposed to be a pair of colored plexiglass or chrome wings attached to her back. They come up for auction on ebay regularly and I have sold three of them myself.
  17. O.K......I just got the word. Grandma is in a 1938 Chevrolet, not '37. What do I know? I am a Chrysler guy!
  18. Just thought you Model T guys would like to see a vintage "center door oval windowed T in the snow" photo.
  19. Thought you Chevy guys might like this pic of my grandma Keiser in the 1937 Chevrolet 2 door sedan.
  20. This is more like recovery than anti-theft, but make sure that you photograph and document EVERYTHING about your antique car. All blemishes and dings and distinguishing features should be noted and pictured. That way, you and others can spot parts or sections as they show up at swap meets or hopefully, BEFORE. I have found two cars for people because the owners kept track of certain things on their cars that was different or special. I found my own 1970 Plymouth GTX that was stolen in San Diego because I recognized the air cleaner housing. There were certain marks that the filter left on the housing that led me to the car. It was partially stripped, but I got it back and re-restored it. Oh yeah...it was tow-barred away at midnight one night by a Mercury Bobcat Runabout! The blinking alarm light did not deter them. I even heard the scumbags drop the tow bar in the street and said to my girl "sounds like someone is getting their car towed". Man, was I ever right!
  21. Anyone out there know where this car may be? It was one of my high school rides in the early 70s. My dad sold it to a guy in Royal Oak, Michigan back in 1972 who I believed lived in some apartments ("Dolly Madison?). The car sat outside next to I75 freeway because his wife did not want that "old wreck" as she called it taking up space in their garage. It was a beautiful original except for newer black paint, 1936 Dodge Brothers touring sedan with dual sidemounts and mohair upholstery. The last time I saw it I cried because someone had vandalized the hell out of it. Windows and gauges smashed, tires and insides slashed. It was so sad looking. I moved and lost track of it and I thought that someone on this site may have seen it or used it for parts? John
  22. Being a Chrysler raised kind of guy, I say go the Hemi route, but first go to the Hemi Owners Association website and research the 331s. I rebuilt one as a kid centuries ago, but for the bang and buck combo they will more than likely steer you to a 354 or 392 Hemi. Then....yes. Cram that into your car. I am sooooo tired of seeing Chevy 350s in everything with the hood up (at shows, I mean).
