  1. I'm looking for an oil pressure sending unit for a '38 Eight. My understanding is they were all the same through 1947. Alternatively, I understand these can be rebuilt. Does anyone know of a rebuilder? -Jim

  3. Mark, If you see this...you emailed me about my 1949 1st series Chrysler New Yorker in the latest edition of The Antique Automobile. Your anit-spam autoreply required me to fill in information on another page. One of the pieces of information is the characters in an image. Unfortunately the character don't appear. There is simply a small box with a red "x" in the middle, indicating the image wont load. Neither does the audio work. Please allow me access to your inbox or call me at 817-492-9782. Or please see the ebay auction I have for the car. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chrysler-New-York

  5. If you're looking at other cars, ask yourself if they give you this much detail: Ownership history:<O:p</O:p 1949-73: Joseph Sturnessee, Neillville, Wisc. Note the original warranty booklet is still with the car, showing Sturnessee as the purchaser. The 1960 oil change sticker also has his name.1973-1980: Royce Larsen (friend of Sturnessee), Neillville, Wisc.<O:p</O:p 1980-2010: Wayne Larsen (brother of Royce), Iola, Wisc.2010-present: Jim Raymond, Ft. Worth, TX.Options: dual heaters; white wheel trim rings (not currently installed, but still with the car).Repainted in 1977. The pa
  6. I have recently aquired the dealer-only X-ray books for 1936, '37, and '38. These ranged in length from 59-68 pages and compared Nash with its competitors for numerous design features and equipment. I am selling nice photocopies in a 3-ring binder (each year a separate binder). Price is $30.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. No extra charge for shipping if you buy more than one. Please email me if you're interested. jameswraymond@yahoo.com Jim Raymond Ft. Worth, TX
  7. I have a '49 1st series New Yorker, which is the same car as yours. I have a problem with an exhaust leak around the exhaust manifold somewhere. I have yet to figure out just where it is coming from but have not yet removed the mainfold. Now the noise is really more of a ticking noise; it's not a knocking noise. But if your description of the noise is not quite correct (i.e.-it's really more of a ticking) then your car may have the same problem mine does. Mine is noticeable at idle and going down the road up to about 40 mph. Above that, all the other noise drowns it out. Keep us posted.
  8. I put this on the DeSoto forum but it doesn't look like it gets much activity, so I'm puttin this here too. The latest edition of Collectible Automobile has an article about the 1938-39 DeSotos. It says that in March of 1938, DeSoto came out with a Custom edition. Don Butler's book on Plymouth and DeSoto mentions there were 2,550 made. Has anyone ever seen one? Also, the CA article says there was a brochure issued at the time for just the Custom. Has anyone ever seen one of those brochures? I don't find one on ebay. -Jim

  10. I have now had 3 coils fail with only about 10 minutes of run time on each one. The first was the original factory coil (this is a 28,000-mile original car). A cheap replacement soon failed, and then so did a more expensive Borg Warner. Does anyone have an idea what would cause these to fail so quickly? Jim Ft. Worth, TX
  11. I recently purchased a 1948 C38 (Windsor) owner's manual ("Facts about your new Chrysler"). On the inside back cover it shows this originally accompanied a car with serial #70677965. The car was purchased new at Benny Bishop (the dealer) in Ephrata, PA on 8-21-1948. It sold to Robert W. Glass of 278 E. Main, Adamstown, PA. The car's engine number was C38189923. If anyone owns this car today (and can prove it) I'll sell this to you as soon as a I find a replacement. Actually, I thought I was getting one for a New Yorker (C39), so I may want to wait until I can find one for a C39 and not a C38.
  12. Baron, any chance you have pics of your car? I love the '39 DeSoto. A couple months ago I bought a 1948 New Yorker 4-door with 28,000-miles. I know the ownership history and am the 4th owner. I know I am really going to enjoy the car. But I would equally have bought a '39 DeSoto if I could have found a restored one for what I paid for my New Yorker. Where are you located? You can email me directly at jameswraymond@yahoo.com.
  13. Does anyone know if these match the look of the original (optional) trim ring on the '46-'48's? Hirsch says they're just a generic trim ring. I guess it's possible that's all the Chrysler ones amounted to; that is, there really wasn't any design to them, it was just a plain ring that fit the space between the hub cap and the edge of the wheel.
