  1. Hi all, As I get further along with identifying what I'm missing on my 1938 Chrysler C19 Imperial convertible coupe, I noticed that I am missing a lot of parts from the rumble seat area. Would any of you that have 1937-38 Chrysler, DeSoto, Dodge and Plymouths (even '39 Plymouths) have any photos, or be able to snap photos of a few parts for me? Let's start with an overall view (this is what I have): - Clearly, I'm missing the seat cushions. I have the one that goes on the deck lid, but not the bottom. I was going to make one, but I need photos of the bottom of it and how it attaches to those stands on the floor. Most people I've talked to don't have their seat bottoms out, and don't seem to want to take them out if they're installed. - I'm also missing whatever the side trim panels attach to (and the trim panels). I have no clue what those are supposed to look like. What are the side panels made from? - I don't have the toe board that mounts between the floor and the bracing behind the seat. I can probably make one if I knew what it's supposed to look like. - For flooring material, are these supposed to have a rubber mat, or carpeting? I'm also wondering how they kept the rain out of the trunk at the bottom of deck lid: On the photo above (looking between the open deck lid and the rear trunk deck), there's a tab that looks like something is missing from it. There's 3 or 4 such tabs along that panel. Is this for a trough? The side areas have troughs. Where do these troughs drain to? I have a pair of holes in the floor on the ones side below the left rear corner of the deck lid. Are there metal tubes or rubber hoses that go down there? Is there anything else that I might be missing? I have not had the opportunity to see a complete rumble seat coupe or convertible in this area to compare, so I'm hoping someone here could give me a hand. I realize that this is a bunch of questions, but I figure I would group all these on one thread and concentrate on this area of the car right now. I hope a few of you are able to help me... This is looking like a really huge project so far. Thanks! Rej
  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. Hello Group, I am now ready to pull the front clip off the '38 RC. What order of removal would work, i.e. hood, front quarter panels, inner panels, front grill, etc... The goal is to remove the engine and transmission at the same time. Thanks in advance!
  4. 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

  6. I am wondering if anybody has an idea on the meaning of some abbreviations on my 1938 Chrysler Imperial Body tag. ------------------------------------ C19BC-1408 229-632 RHCT OD JOB No46-4 ------------------------------------- From this, I know the following: C19: Imperial BC: Business Coupe 1408: Body number 1408 229: Gyro Blue Poly Exterior Paint 632: ?? Interior trim (no idea what material or color this should be) RHCT: ?? OD: optional overdrive transmission. Job No46-4: ?? Does anybody have a clue what RHCT might stand for? The car doesn't seem to have any unusual options, but I am assuming this stands for some sort of optional equipment installed at the factory, like the overdrive transmission. Does anybody know, or have a car with the 632 interior trim? I'd like to redo it in the proper pattern if possible.
  7. Hi there everybody! I'm new to this forum and am looking for a clutch disc for my Dad's '38 Dodge D8. Does anyone have any they would be willing to sell or know of a good resource to purchase one at a reasonable price? Thanks! Am excited to talk Dodge's with all of you! I also have a '47 Power Wagon that will be a fun old rig to restore! -Ron
  8. I'm not sure if this extends to other years, but I know the 1937-38 Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth and DeSoto convertibles had a link between the windshield frame and the wiper arm/blade. What I don't know is what it looks like and how it attaches at the wiper end. I also don't know if this is the same as other years. I've attached a photo of where it goes on my car. Original Chrysler part number is: "Windshield wiper blade guide rod: 758404" also used only on the convertibles are (among all the other specific parts they have): "Windshield wiper arm assembly: 753544" "Windshield wiper blade: 753754" I really would like to find at least one guide rod and wiper arm and blade set (a pair would be great), but what I am asking for now is if anyone has ever seen any or has any photos of these so I can see how it all works together. I'd take measurements and make my own if I need to. I'm pretty sure it's to articulate the blade so it doesn't end up on the chrome windshield frame or the body. It seems every picture I've found of one of these cars, they are missing, but sometimes the little chrome tab is still there.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I am looking for some photos and dimensions of the top latches/clamps and sun visors found on any 1938 Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth or DeSoto convertible coupe. My car is missing the above parts. I'm also wondering if there is a difference between 1937 and 38 top hold downs as well. Mine appears to have notches in the pegs that locate the roof. Are these for some sort of bolt/wing nut setup (currently have a bolt threaded in that lines up with the notch)?
  12. 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).

  15. New to this forum... if this isn't the right area, apologies. I have the pleasure of finding a new home for family restored and owned 1938 Ford Coupe body off restore. Looking for help for an honest appraisal or even base starting point. I'm not new to classic or antique restores, ownership or sales, but this one is different. Many, many mods, new parts, rebuilt parts, etc. etc. The main problem is I am in the CA bay area and the car is in Lake County, near Clearlake, CA. If I can successfully get this done online or in person with a list of everything on, in, and around the car, great! If not, well, then I'll just go from there. Comment or PM for interest and I will add additional details. Have a nice night! :cool:
  16. 1937 MG TA VIN TA2024 4 cyl 4 speed manual transmission. This classic MG has been completely restored and is in great condition. It has All new interior, all new canvas including side curtains, tires etc. The car is equipped with an alternator for brighter headlights at night; however the original generator comes with car. Runs very well no problems, a joy to drive. RHD car. This classic 1937 MG is located in Central Florida, $39,000 Or Best Offer in U.S. dollars. 336-765-8312, email for more pictures: wwhitfield@triad.rr.com delivery available world wide. Collector car values are more stable than the stock market. Enjoy your investment! The first of the famous T-Series sports cars produced by MG was introduced in 1936. The first was the TA, which spawned a succession of improved postwar models that included the TC, TD and TF. The TA had a stylish look that would define the typical British sports car for years to come. It had a tall, square radiator, wire wheels, cut-down doors, folding windscreen and rear-mounted slab fuel tank and spare tire. The TA was powered by a 1,292cc engine and fitted with pushrod-actuated overhead valves. Top speed was nearly 80 mph with zero-to-fifty taking 15 seconds. The engine was a MPJG OHV unit from the Wolseley 10 but with twin SU carburetors, modified camshaft and manifolding. The engine displaced just 1292 cc, with a stroke of 102 mm (4.0 in) and a bore of 63.5 mm (2.5 in) and power output was 50 hp (40.3 kW) at 4,500 rpm. The four-speed manual gearbox now had synchromesh on the two top ratios. Like the PB, most were two-seat open cars with a steel body on an ash frame. Mileage on the speedometer is about 29,000 miles Car was imported into USA in 1969 and no changes have been made since. It was imported by a man in Spokane Wash and mostly sat in a garage until 2007 when it was restored by a pro, everything was done to the car you can think of. All new brakes, entire gas tank taken off and cleaned out all gas lines are new. The car was also re upholstered with new seats, all new canvas etc. a couple of new knock off wheels etc It then sat until I bought it. The engine has less than .002 clearance on rods and mains, holds 50 lbs oil pressure, Original heater works, no defroster, wipers good and work. There is no smoke from the exhaust and the car averages 35 MPG on the road. I have all the old bills for everything that has been done to the car since 1969.

  18. Hi - my 90L does not have side mount trim "buick" trim labels. I have looked at a few photos of other 90s and they dont seem to have the label as well. Is that right? The matter is slightly further complicated by the fact that mine is a Mclaughlin-Buick too...
  19. Just picked up this 1938 Pontiac cabriolet 2 seat roadster in upstate NY. She just arrived in Oakland CA, and will receive a full resto! I'm thinking midnight blue or black. Love your feedback on the color. Also looking to buy a pair of 38 tail light bezels and running boards if you have them!

  21. I have a 1938 Buick Series 40 that was restored all original completed about 10 years ago. It pretty much sat outside for those years...however I start it about once a month and drive it around some. It is in great shape inside, mechanically appears to be fine. The strt 8 engine was rebuilt and I just had the starter rebuilt. It mainly needs some minor cosmetic touch up to the paint, and exterior trim. The only really bad part about the car is the windows. They windshield and back window have to be replaced..the other windows are fine (not great). There is fender my wife backed into (you can see it in the picture). It is 4 door with the original gray color paint(it was repainted10 years ago), big white wall tires in great shape and no real rust. My question is how much would this car be worth? I see sales from 6000.00-25,000. Thanks for any feedback.
  22. Fellow Buick enthusiasts, I am looking for a set of turn indicators for the front of my 1938 Buick Century. Preferably straight, without repair, w/lenses. I'm looking for the complete set-up which I can install without having to source other parts to complete. I'm new to the world of pre-war Buicks and I'm not sure what models used them. My guess is that the business coupe, century, and 4 door sedans used all of the same indicators. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Best, John johnlips@aol.com 510-684-7525
  23. I have a nice pair of used front shocks that fit (I think) 1937 and 1938 series 40-60: one right, one left. Clean, with no apparent leaks and each one has compression/tension. $70.00 each or $125.00 the pair, plus shipping. Pix available on request (send me your email address).
  24. This is a very nicely restored car. Price is $23,500. To view additional photos, go to www.oldcars.fotki.com Worldwide delivery is available.
  25. I need some advice concerning removing a rusty section of the chassis cross member directly under the radiator. The fully boxed section has rust holes in the bottom portion. Can this be cut out and a new piece welded to it or should a complete crossmember be fabricated?
