  1. I guess FedEx lost my key chain. Anyone else receive theirs?
  2. If you do a Google search for that company, somewhere you will find a link with their Better Business Bureau cases. Makes for some fun reading. My case is there. From that page you will be able to file your own case. That's what I did and it got results. I'd post a link here for you, but we seem to be doing a good job of not directly identifying them.
  3. Sorry, I should have been more specific. These are used. I have no part numbers. They are either right fronts or left rears. I don't know how to tell them apart without part numbers. They look so similar. When I looked at that parts book online, I expected them to be the same part number, but they aren't. They appear the same, but they must mount differently. They are either an 1828626 or an 1829045, but I have no way of knowing. It took me forever just to figure out they're '59 Chrysler. Thanks
  4. A recently acquired stash of Oldsmobile parts also included a pair of bumper bars for a '59 Chrysler. How can I tell if these are front or rear. They look similar in the parts catalog I looked at online, but have different part numbers. I don't have pictures at this time.
  5. The auction in completely gone...
  6. Here are the rest of the photos. I notice they blacked out the plates... https://www.rkmotors.com/vehicles/1769/1942-chrysler-windsor
  7. Another one... Every one I've seen so far is like this.
  8. I find myself in the market for a '62 dealer promo. All of the ones I have seen on that popular auction site have a friction motor up front where the facsimile of the engine should be. I referred to an old copy of Collectible Automobile which featured these cars, and the scale model section refers to dealer promos and toy store frictions. Does anyone know if the dealer promos came with friction motors, too?
  9. O'Hara Motors was a Lincoln Mercury dealer located at 1 Ocean Avenue in New London, CT - at least they were in 1949... https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/445762136/
  10. I changed my cable 15 years ago when I installed the cruise control. I recall it being a b*tch. I think it runs through that part of the cowl that mounts the mounts the body to the frame. It's kind of a blind spot. I'm guessing I tied a string to it before I removed it. Wish I could be of more help.
  11. June Speedster just arrived. Lo and behold - everything is fine this month. I did notice there is no eBay link in the Library section...
  12. Um, that's where the thermostat and engine coolant temperature sensor are located...
  13. Another unreadable Speedster. I forwarded it to an IT friend of mine and he had problems viewing it as well. I asked him to come here and read this thread and here is what he emailed to me.... I read the post. I don't think it is a setting. The massive ebay font is causing the rest of the message to resize proportionally. If you look at the html source of the email and search for "ebay" you'll find this: ">Click Here</a> to Shop <u></u><u></u></span></b></p><p class="MsoNormal" align="center" style="text-align:center"><b><span style="font-size:1638.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;color:#333333">With Us on eBay<u></u><u></u></span></b> Notice the 1638pt font size, that's the problem! I have no idea why no one else is seeing it. Thoughts???
