  2. <span style="font-weight: bold">Details:1936 Chrysler Airstream C-7 $50K (negotiable)</span> Contact:Cherie@frogpondpickers.com 540-885-3572 Visit web for more info and pictures http://frogpondpickers.com/chrysler1936.html <span style="font-style: italic">Detailed Restoration History</span> Engine Engine was totally rebuilt. It is called a flathead six, for six cylinders. The pistons were not available so they had them made(machined) to specs. Has new clutch, pressure plate, flywheel has been resurfaced. New brakes, new bearings, new valve seats, etc. Considered to be like a new motor. By the way, the car holds 15 gallons of gasoline in it's tank. Interior As far as the interior is concerned here is what was done. The original interior was still in the car when Dad bought it. It also had the original assist straps and carpet. It also contained an extra back seat spring unit in case the original was broken inside the seat cover. The headliner was made of cotton and was replaced with the equivalent of reproduction headliner materials. The seats were reupholstered with the original mohair with the correct size and placement of the buttons. The door panels were also reproduced with the original buttons and stitching. The carpet was replaced with wool carpet of the 1936 era. The design above the inside windshield header was stitched as original as was the back of the front seat. The robe cord was replaced and the dash and garnish mouldings were woodgrained like the original. Exterior Complete exterior restoration. Chrome plating of grill and bumpers. It has new whitewall tires and the wheels were painted as the factory had painted them. It does have signal lights installed for safety reasons, but is located on the steering column and could easilly be removed. It has a spare tire in the trunk and the trunk has been covered with black trunk lining for sound purposes. The glove compartments were remade and installed in the dash. The same with the kick panels. The quarter windows need to have new gaskets but they are not available that I know of. That is why we have never driven the car in the rain and it is always stored inside with the cover on it. Still trying to locate gaskets for quarter windows to make it waterproof 100%. There was no runniing board material available for this car when he restored it, so he used something equal to it. He made the rear trunk chrome piece that was broken and had it plated. It has the original windshield wipers. The only thing Dad didn't have done was the inside door sill plates, but we have the originals with the Chrysler Emblems on them. The automobile serial number located on the right front door pillar is as follows: 6858129 It coinsides with Airstream Six Serial Numbers 6823301 thru 6865003 for the year 1936. Here is a list with engine numbers and data plates. Motor Numbers: (as they appear on the top of the motor head) Engine Number: 649853-1 S-1 C-7 Manufacturers Plate on the firewall in the engine compartment: Chrysler Corporation Detroit Michigan Correspondence pertaining to the body Must bear these numbers: C74T-28085 309-294 Job No 76-136 TM Miscellaneous additional parts: Repair manual Chrome Grill Door sill plates 2 Complete quarter windows with handles and gaskets Original assist strap from original upholstery One hubcap Carberetor Distributor Starter 1 Quart 600 W Oil
