  1. Hard to see in the screen capture, but the same amount of letters as DODGE. Easy mistake.
  2. I'd say the wedged ends makes them appear to be more of a spreader tool rather than a compressor. Is the tool fully open in your pic Dave? How far apart are the ends when fully open? Cheers, Greg
  3. DPCD still offered a choice of black fenders with a colored body in 1938 but it was a cost delete offering for the very frugal Dodge and Plymouth buyers rather than a two color paint enhancement.

  9. I can tolerate the whitewalls, it's the cringe-worthy, denim clad "time out dolls" that make my skin crawl. I enjoy every era of car at every show I visit, but when I see one of those..... things, I give the car and especially the owner a wide berth. If you're not really sure and feel you need a way to gauge whether or not you're a loser, this is the perfect yard stick. And please, spare me the nonsense of how this idiosyncratic weirdness helps to get the wives involved in the male dominated car hobby. It's simply not true. I bring my wife to many car shows. She thinks they
  10. I would also consider trading this engine for something interesting, and of similar value.
