  1. 1937 Chrysler styling isn’t my cup of tea, but for those that do like them, here’s more info: http://imperialclub.org/Yr/1937/index.htm
  2. First let me say, that’s a beautiful car! Perhaps I should have said roadster rather than collegiate roadster, as I don’t recall the difference and would likely have read it in the Plymouth Bulletin or period literature that’s presently inaccessible. What sticks in my mind is a windshield that fold forward. Is that a feature of all ‘32 PB roadsters?
  3. I was going to same - the unsold 31’s carried over into ‘32 and were advertised as Thirft models. It is completely possible this car / chassis sold new in 1932. I have a 1932 PB which is distinct from a body perspective (grill/rad, hood, cowl, fenders, etc.). ...1933 looked almost the same as 1932, but with a six instead of a four cylinder. BTW: Plymouth PB convertible coupes are beautiful cars. I’ve seen several and that or a collegiate roadster are on “my list”.
  4. Would this process discourage driving a car until senior judging completed successfully, lest blemishes appear from use?
  5. Years ago Dad bought a 1927 Stutz out of the north east just from pictures. It was somewhat less than described. As he was pulling the door panels off to address some of the problems, he found a parking stub for the University of Washington - it had been a “local” car at one time. Not a fascinating piece on its own, but fun to trace where the car had been. I bought a 1933 Chrysler a couple decades ago when I was young and thought I’d discovered a hidden bootlegging compartment under the rear carpet. Years later I was to find out, that’s where the optional radio box went.
  6. Hans, if you search out the Pontiac Bulletin / Pontiac club, there’s a fellow in the Midwest that will recast your steering wheel with modern UV resistant plastic (mine looks terrific - i have a four door sedan 8/hydramatic in the exact same color scheme). He also reproduces the hood ornament plastic “feathers” in original translucent red and non-original translucent blue (also UV resistant plastic). It wa several years ago jay I had it done, so don’t have the contact info handy nor can I guarantee he’s still in business. Worth trying to find, though.
  7. I too contacted the seller and received more pictures, but rather than Blaine, Wa (I’m in Washington), it was located in Pittsburgh, PA. Beware!
  8. Thank you for posting here first! I toured as a kid with a four cylinder 1914 Buick keeping pace with our six cylinder seven passenger touring of a differt make (valve in block). They are a great car (I have one now). You might consider posting to the HCCA website as well. ...good thing you are all the way across the country, I’ve been very interested in watching what has been coming out of your storage and I’ve no place to put anything!
  9. Slow to this thread but *absolutely* agree with the noncontact thermometer. ...early thirties sedan taught me that lesson.
  10. Not in the market for a car (a car shed? Yes) but always up for hunting cars for others if your up in the Seattle area or need a car looked at in the Seattle area.
  11. Any chance your spark knob hasn’t disintegrated? If so, can you take a few pictures of it before you touch it (prior experience with this request). I have a mock up, by would love to know what the original actually looked like. Also, I understand others have vacuum formed new plastic back over the metal dash surrounds. Something I’m interested in doing if here are enough of us to make he project cost-feasible.
  12. Terrific, thanks! Some years ago I bought a 1933 Chrysler CQ which had all of the vacuum declutching and accelerator starting equipment removed. Over the years I’ve been trying to piece the missing components together. At present, it retains the (perhaps) WWII era modified accelerator linkage. Still looking for the declutching canister, amongst other things.
  13. More pictures on the Seattle’s craigslist here, shows as Redmond, Washington for those interested in location. I’ll defer to Dave M. for correct location though.
  14. My parents drove a 1926 Cadillac coupe quite extensively after us kids grew up. The only problem they really had was passing ...gas stations.
  15. That’s quite the experience Brian! Does that have the vacuum declutching equipment on it? Any chance of seeing a picture of the carb side of the motor?
