  1. I just picked up this truck a few months ago along with a 47 Dodge and a 47 Stude, they are all 1.5 ton trucks. They are mostly complete and fairly straigt. I would like to find a hood ornament / rad cap for the '37 that is close to original. However I can't seem to find any pics of one. The smaller pickups had an inside rad cap and bolt on ornament. On This truck the rad cap is external and in the grill shell.
  2. I am looking for the following parts for a 1938 Chrysler Imperial convertible coupe (C19): - Complete front seat assembly, including adjusters/slides, or very detailed photographs and dimensions of same from someone's car. The seat appears to be the same on 1937 and 1938 Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto and Chrysler convertible coupes, possibly 1939 Plymouth convertible coupe as well. My car is missing the entire front seat assembly, so any leads or information would be appreciated; - Rumble seat bottom cushion assembly (or detailed dimensions and photos as mine is missing); (same possible donor cars as above) - Rumble seat interior panel patterns; (same possible donor cars as above) - Coupe or convertible Left Side stainless steel door and rear body trim (I am missing the rear body piece from the door to the tail along the quarter panel, as well as the door). Chrysler C18 Royal or C19 Imperial coupe or convertible coupe trim works; - Running Board stainless trim, top strips and side molding (any 1938 Chrysler Imperial C19 trim should fit); - Convertible coupe door sill plate (good sample, pattern, dimensioned sketch and detailed photos, or whatever I can use to get new ones made - mine are missing). - Horn button/horn ring springs and washers and contact plates for the optional banjo/chrome spoke steering wheel (same wheel as Dodge/Desoto/Chrysler) (I believe that the springs and contacts are the same as the regular steering wheel - I would be interested in a complete standard steering wheel assembly if need be); - Passenger door window regulator assembly, including window channels, window frame, etc (or a complete door) same on 1937 and 1938 Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler, and '37-'39 Plymouth convertible coupes with one piece glass (no vent window). - Windshield wiper arms, blades and blade guide rods that attach to windshield frame bracket, or detailed photos and measurements of same (all 1937-1938 convertibles are the same). - Interior sun visors and rods/mounts. - Pattern of the windshield header trim panel (where sun visors mount) or detailed photos of what it looks like. Please send me a private message with any leads or details, or reply directly to this thread. Thanks!
  3. Good Afternoon all, Because of the interest various folks have expressed in the modification which is made to the coolant bypass valve to address certain overheating situations in our pre-war Straight 8 Buicks, I have posted the files which address this modification to my personal website. This documentation is specific to a 1937 Century, but I believe it is applicable to most pre-war 8-cylinder Buicks, both large and small series. You can read a summary of the symptoms, diagnostics and download the files here: http://2experts.org/Vehicles/Buick/Coolant_Bypass.htm -- Best Regards, Jon B Kanas Website: http://www.2experts.org Longmont, Colorado; Cultural Center of the Universe
  4. We are in the process of working on a 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80 trying to get it road ready so we can enjoy it. I am having problems finding parts anywhere for something this old. We would would prefer OEM parts that look original on this car. From what we know everything on the car is factory. There are a couple things missing, nothing major. As we drive the car we will need certain things to keep it on the road. I posted some images of the car in my profile gallery. Some of the things that appear to be missing like the carburetor and bumpers are not. The bumpers were removed and chromed recently. The carburetor has been removed so we can rebuild it. Any suggestions or information would be helpful. All the places that I have found that have classic Buick parts only go back to 1946.

  6. Hello All! Elise here. I have a very basic working knowledge of cars, picked up from friends along the way, but I am diving right in with my lovely lady. We had a wonderful ride last Saturday, and then again a couple of days ago... but that is when she revealed to me that she needed some assistance. Water everywhere upon stopping, and then after starting once, refused and sent fuel running from the carb. (I do suspect that the gent who put the water in the radiator for me may have simply flooded her, but I have been advised I should rebuild the carb). She did finally start again after a few taps to the carb, and I rushed her home...where she dumped water all over the street again, poor girl. A friend from a local custom shop stopped by and pointed out that the water seemed to be coming from the pump and that I should begin looking for a replacement. She is now safely in my back yard and Im now looking to learn all I can and find the appropriate parts to get her fixed up and running about again. I am located in Las Vegas and was hoping that I might be able to find some kind gents out there who I could ask questions of. I would like to know my girl and how she operates, rather than just take her to a mechanic and have them fix her up for me, so any assistance anyone would be willing to help with would be much appreciated! :-) I will be taking some more photos tomorrow of the engine compartment... as Ive been looking through the internet Ive seen something in photos that seem to be in another place in my car... lol ... could be I just do not know enough and am mistaken... but I hope someone out there will be able to assist, or suggest other sites that could be helpful. 'Looking forward to learning more, and already enjoying the existing posts here on the site. Many thanks for the interesting reading thus far, and in advance for future ones! Miss E (Elise)

  9. Hello, I am looking for someone in my area that can install or help me install runningboard matting on a 37' Buick Special. I live in the Denver, Colorado area, but I am willing to drive a few hours outside of town to get it installed. Thanks. Tom
  10. Hi guys, can anyone out there help me please. I suspect my fuel sender unit is faulty as the gauge intermittently tells me it's either empty or full and nowhere in between, which is not very useful. Can I get at the unit without dropping the tank ? I'm not sure where to look.
  11. Hi, I have just joined the forum and this is my first post. The handbook I have shows 2 pictures of where to place the jack at the front and rear of the car if I need to change a wheel. The front one looks OK but the rear position appears to be to jack up the car right under the leaf spring. Does anyone know where the best jacking points are please ?

  13. Greetings! There is a nice feature article on the 37-38 Pontiacs in the newest issue of Collectible Automobile magazine - the June 2013 issue is now on the bookshelves at Barnes and Noble.
  14. I am trying to decide what color to paint my 1938 Imperial, which is something that won't be for a while yet, but I would like to start gathering information on. I have looked on Autocolorlibrary.com, as well as the DuPont online archives to get an idea what color my car may have been, but so far I am still unsure. My car "was" a 1938 C19 convertible that some farmer turned into a truck by hacking off the entire back part many years ago, and the rear body was subsequently replaced with one from a 1937 Royal convertible after my father acquired the car in the 1960's. I am now trying to finish this car where my dad left off on it before his passing. There are a number of places under the side trim that show the original color(s). The original body was a metallic grey (perhaps "Chinchilla Grey") with a red vinyl interior (based on some remnants of the original door panels). The replacement 1937 body was originally a metallic brown/gold colour (it appears similar to "Del Monte Beige") with a tan top (no clue on the interior, as it's missing). I'm basing this on what color chips I was able to find before. Are there any specific paint names and recipes for Canadian cars available? I am leaning towards painting the car in the brown color. I did try to photograph a spot where I was able to buff some paint, but this is a difficult color to capture, and will post a couple of photos later on. My 1938 Chrysler Canada parts book doesn't have much detail on paint nor trim codes. Perhaps one of you guys might have some info that could help me try to get enough information to get some correct paint mixed up.
  15. I am installing a headliner in a 1937 Plymouth Coupe and I believe I am missing some parts around the door frame area. Anyone know of any places I can buy interior parts for this car or have pictures of a completed headliner I can reference to make new pieces? I can not seem to find much about this car online.
  16. I have a 1938 Buick steering wheel that I am looking to make complete. It is the chrome multi-spoke version. From what I can figure out, it is missing the horn button and the horn ring, and everything inside like contacts, wiring, springs, etc. It does have the chrome cast outer horn button bezel. I'm trying to figure out what is all missing and where I can find these parts for a reasonable amount (and what they should look like).
  17. Looking for a 1937 Chevy Car grille. Finishing the car and need the grille. Thanks in advance, Shawn
  18. I have a 1937 Pontiac Coupe. It sits in my barn because I am unable to find a transmission to replace the original 3 speed that threw a gear through the bottom. Now I am considering buying a 292 Chevy 6 with a T5 to replace my original motor and trans; or trying to find out what transmission would bolt up to my good running original 322 straight six. I like to drive on the freeway, so I am really trying to find a gearbox that would suit this desire. What would you do in my situation? P.s. I wont be placing a 350/350 combo in it, so please don't suggest it. Thanks for any advice inlineNmine. I have received new advice that I could take a later model Pontiac 5 bolt top transmission 39-55; and use i with my original 5 bolt cover and floor shifter; can anyone second this new info?

  23. I have been wanting to get back into a pre-war car for a while, and lucked into a really nice 1937 Pontiac 6 2619 Touring Sedan. The car runs and drives as new, and has a correct new interior and new rubber all around. The paint is presentable (Wenonah Maroon), and most of the chrome is pretty good. The car has been in the AACA Driver Participation program for years. I plan to spiff her up a bit with correct body and wheel striping, trim rings, fog lights, etc. Mostly just for my own enjoyiment, but I'll keep everything correct in case I every choose to put her in class judging. The car feels much like the 1937 LaSalle sedan I owned years ago, which is not surprising since they used the same body. The 37 is a perfect mix of older looks with relatively modern driveability. My last pre-war was a 1929 Model A pickup, which was neither comfortable for someone 6'1" or pleasant to drive in our Interstate-locked area.
