  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
  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 do
  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

  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
  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!

  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: 75
  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 t
  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).

  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...

  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 s

  24. 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?
