  1. From my own experience...... You should have the gears in NEUTRAL position when you reinstall the cover and the fork. (note: the levers on the housing should be pointing straight down when installed in the neutral position.) When I put mine back on I did not have the gears in neutral and the tranny would only go in reverse and bog down the engine. When I removed the cover again I made sure the gears were in neutral and reinstalled the cover - end of problem.
  2. When shifting into reverse the gear shifter in the car is pulled towards you and then up. What that pulling towards you does is activates the other shift lever on the transmission in order to engage/disengage reverse. Without actually looking under my car and seeing which direction the lever moves I don't want to speculate either towards the front or rear of the car - but it can only be 1 or the other. Maybe you need to simulate that movement on the lever(s).
  3. Update: I went in a different direction and did not purchase this car. I would have definitely bought it but something else (a different car) came along.
  4. The Woodie is now safely tucked away in its new home. It was loaded into an enclosed trailer on April 30th at 9 am and it was in my driveway on May 1st at 11:30 am. A little over 24 hours to transport a car over 1100 miles. I consider that fantastic. And the cost was extraordinarily reasonable. Anyway, I have been tinkering and I am going to drop the oil pan as there is about an inch or more of sludge (was going to do it anyway) in the pan and I am going to remove the side valve covers and clean that area up, too, before I even try to start the car. Also, clean the pickup screen, etc... I cleaned up the interior a bit and it is looking good. Having said all of that, I bought this car sight unseen (I know, I I know - should NEVER do that). But I couldn't get anyone to go look it over for me and I was 1100 miles away. But when the car was delivered I was more than pleased with my purchase.
  5. I am looking for a decent passenger side rocker panel molding for my 1949 Plymouth Woody. It is 80" long. Doesn't have to be show quality but should be nice. Thanks, Joe

  7. IF all goes according to plan the Plymouth should be in my possession this Thursday. IF all does not go according to plan it will be a few days later. I will keep everyone posted (if interested) Joe

  9. See, you jogged my feeble memory... Add to my list a 1941 Ford Woodie Maybe I'll remember some others eventually About the nightmares about termites......no nightmares.
  10. Yes. The rear bumper is hinged in the center part and it unlatches and the center section folds down allowing clearance for the tailgate to open. If this was missing on the car, as I have seen on others, it would be an impossible item to find.
  11. I have owned the following Woodies, as far as I can remember: Thanks for the congrats, too 1948 Oldsmobile 1949 Buick Super 1947 Nash Suburban 1953 Buick Super 1949 Dodge Coronet 4 1947 T &C Sedans 1948 T & C Convertible 1952 Buick Super 1949 Plymouth 1948 Chevrolet 1950 Packard Station Sedan 1948 Pontiac These are the ones I can remember right off hand I wish I was able to keep them all but space & money wouldn't allow it.
  12. Just passing this along. As posted by the OP in the General Discussion Forum. "Are there any woody experts here I can contact regarding a 41 ford woody? I may sell one and am looking for fair market value for a complete car with good steel but roached wood, really roached wood."
  13. I hope you don't mind but I referenced this in the National Woodie Club Forum further down in the Forum section. Maybe it will help you.
  14. Thanks for all of the positive remarks regarding the Plymouth Woody. I am expecting to have it "home" sometime in early May.
  15. When you ask about restoring the wood do you mean refinishing it (strip/sand/bleach/revarnish) or do you mean replacing it? Where in Pa are you? I am in NE Pa. and maybe I can help Joe
  16. This one is #2 as I sold one of my other ones.
  17. Thanks for the encouraging words. I couldn't pass it up as I have ALWAYS liked the 49 Plymouth & Desoto wagons. As a matter of fact my very 1st car was a 1949 Plymouth 2-door sedan. It was originally a pea green but I had it painted - guess what color? Yep, the cream color of the Wagon. So I guess I have come full circle now and MAYBE this will end the "sickness" I have when it comes to cars - but I doubt it.
  18. It is a poorly fabricated rocker panel. As is the case with 49 Plymouths (I had one when I was 17 years old - many moons ago) the Woody has suffered from the floors and rockers rusting. However, the rest of the sheetmetal looks very good. YES it is original paint. The reason I bought it was because the wood is all original - inside and out - and appears to be in excellent condition. Metal fabrication is a LOT less expensive than replacing wood on a Woody. Also, the car is complete - having the fold down split rear bumper. which would be IMPOSSIBLE to find. The car was owned by the same person for well over 40+ years. It will run with a little TLC. I don't know if it has OD. I have not gotten the car home yet. It will be here in early May
  19. I was afflicted by "THE DISEASE" again. Had to buy it.
  20. Left and Right NOS front parking light lenses for 1951-1952 Chryslers. These fit Windsor & Saratoga models. $75.00 for the pair plus shipping - will get a shipping quote for anyone interested in these Selling as a pair only!!!!! PM me Joe
  21. No update as of yet. We are waiting for the weather conditions to get better. We can't get the car out of the garage because it is "iced" in. The driveway is sloped towards the garage so getting the car out is impossible right now.
