  1. The water was probably to keep the DRIVER of the Tatra cool!
  2. That is a VERY SWEET ride. Is it an original or older restoration?
  3. I am looking for 1931 Dodge Brothers DH6 owners who are in need of the correct "Deco fan" bumper clamp for their car. I am casting some up, but in order to make mine, I will need to cast up a lot more to make it worth mine and everyone's while. They will be made of silica-bronze and will be ready to plate or for an extra cost we can have them plated. I cannot be sure of the cost per unit until I get some sort of an idea about how many are needed. I have a file folder in my computer that is FULL of photos of these cars and 90% of them do not have the correct full set of clamps. PLEASE contact me to be on the list or just to give me any more ideas about reproducing these items. John at leiser31@charter.net
  4. Is it cast metal, stamped or machined? John
  5. Without the running board mounting holes, you are most likely correct that they are for a truck. The mounting brackets look like "top of the frame" style like a truck frame or bed rather than side of the frame or car body mount and I would say mid-twenties.
  6. I believe that all Chrysler product parts had the DPCD mark on them by the era these were made, but I could be mistaken.
  7. Here is what some of the different types of hub pullers look like.
  8. You can always go to hubcaps.org. they have photos and dates of most full wheel covers.
  9. I guess that explains it very well and I really appreciate that insight. I never realized that there were 700+ or - members in your area. I would find it very difficult to accommodate that many in this area, also. Thanks for the answer.
  10. Looks like the first car pictured is a 1930 and the second a 1931. I am a Dodge guy so I don't know....is that correct?
  11. I would try to purchase the correctly threaded hub-style wheel puller. I have seen many on ebay and I just sold four of them. I know that they are out there.
  12. Well, I'll be dipped.....I just looked at my Chrysler book and it shows (even in black and white I can tell) that the engines for 1939, 1940 and 1941 had darker cylinder block paint and a silver head. It may have well been dark red. I apologize to anyone who went by my previous post where I thought they were all silver.
  13. I think we were talkin' Chrysler here, weren't we?
  14. Is there anything like four letters grouped together like DPCD on the frames? They sort of look like '57 or '58 Dodge two door hardtop rear windows.
  15. More of what the Fisher Body Service Manual shows.
  16. I purchased a book years ago that has the information you need. It is the Fisher Body Service Manual and you may be able to get it where I got mine. It has 120 pages loaded with the correct installation for GM interiors. Try Burchill Antique Auto in Port Huron, Michigan. I believe they have a website. The book covers 1929 through 1931, but will work for most years around that time period. The book covers the sheet metal, wood and interiors.
  17. Didn't you get instructions with the kit? If not, take it to your nearest interior redo shop. They will know.
  18. Ahhh....if we could only see it...
  19. Usually, the vehicle serial number on the frame is located over the rear springs on the driver's side. On the outside of the frame rail just ahead of the axle is where it should be. Not certain, but the export frame MAY have it on the passenger side, same area. It usually takes a good rubbing with a wire brush to expose it.
  20. I believe that on the '39 handles all you have to do is press the escutcheon in as far as you can, to expose the pin that goes through the handle and regulator peg. Then with an ice pick or better yet, a blunt ended nail, push the pin out. With the window, if it is similar to my '31 Dodge, all you have to do is roll the window down, remove the inner door trim, crank the window back up and the glass should be able to be tilted in toward the interior and off of the regulator.
  21. Try Irv Bishko in Ohio. GREAT manuals!
  22. There is one on ebay right now.
  23. Glad I don't live near Hershey and have to wait on a list to get into the regional group! I would think that welcoming new members is what the clubs are all about. Why, oh why would you stifle anyone's dream to get a car restored or to get information for their car or to cruise with others in that club??? It DOES seem snobbish and I don't see ANY reason to limit one's membership unless they have been proven to be a total flake and would hinder the club functions. Here at the group I belong to, S.O.J.A.C.C. (State Of Jefferson Antique Car Club) in southern Oregon, we welcome all who want to join. We are into our cars and not the politics. In fact, you don't even have to live in our town OR own an antique car. We are just glad to have you to share more old cars or old car interest. We in our club define our club as being "dedicated to the preservation of pre-1932 historic automobiles", but we are rather loose on the requirements of membership. We don't require a car or even to keep the year under 1932...we just welcome anyone with similar interests to ours. It has been a reality that younger folks are interested in cars other than our pre-1932 statement. They want to bring in and see muscle cars and other special interest cars. If we all have the same basic interest...CARS, why pick and choose members?
  24. Merchant Xpress...what tail lamp lens do you need?
