  1. Redhead came standard in the model 72 roadster and the difference is perceivable. The original carb could be a headache, it it’s still on there.
  2. Nice progress @cevensky! To tag some in a post, type the “@“ symbol and then start typing their forum name. From there you can pick from a list ...assuming they are on the forum.
  3. Though this may be optimistic, the extra wiring and relay you see on the cowl may be a sign that the over drive added is the model R10 used later in the 30’s in Chryslers (admittedly could be something else). I’ve toured with a four cylinder Plymouth convertible setup that way, and it’s a car I would like to have had.
  4. @JamesR times have changed (for now): http://www.langdonsstovebolt.com/store/#!/Exhaust-Headers/c/18665943
  5. @JACK MI think it has your name on it. I vividly recall hearing the rumble of a pair of Fenton headers through glass packs on a 1949 Plymouth convertible when I was a kid. A beautiful sound! I never forgot. I have a pair of Phillips Performance headers like this - don’t think he made them for more than a few years about a decade ago. ...I think this car might be a fair amount of work. Body, paint, engine, top. ...but fun to use along the way.

  7. @edinmassThrown rod? What’s the cause of the failures? I know someone with a 27 needing rebuilt, though they will likely do it themselves. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind knowing about any marque specific gremlins lurking. To your point, I have talked to a recent sellers of 1930’s cars who say their car have had a top notch engine rebuilds by so-and-so, however when I ask them what was done, they don’t know what they paid for.
  8. @Graham Man33, great guess from an engine compartment shot.
  9. Thanks all for your replies. Very interesting car, but not interested in it based on circumstances of sale (not related to the above). Looks like similar conditions occurring on the fan belt and maybe a few other spots. Visible portions easily remedied and if it is simply a sign of slight moisture and not submersion, I’ve learned something. Thanks all!
  10. I contacted the person who posted it. They don’t own the car. ...they anticipate owning it soon.
  11. Thank you for your answers. Picture is from an ad in the cars for sale section, from the North East. Easily cleaned / changed - just wondering what conditions that may have contributed to the cause. I’ve seen cars sit on dirt floors of barns in the Pacific Northwest and never exhibit this.
