  1. I just took off my car's 20 + year-old tires and have a couple questions about which tires/rims came on my '48 Chrysler Windsor. The owner's manual says 7.60 x 15. I know the 15" rims came in two widths, a narrow and a wide. My car has wide rims, but the spare is a narrow rim. That surprised me. It was, as I recall, an old H78 x 15 bias tire. Question 1) Was this narrow spare original (i.e. an early space saver tire, or maybe done later to get a wider tire into the spare tire well)? Question 2) I have read old forum posts that refer to going up to an P225 75 R15 to replace the 7.60 x 15 original. Is this for the narrow or the wide rim? My wide rims had P235 75 R15. I never drove them but a few miles locally, so I can't say I put the through much of a test. Should I drop back to the 225's? Question 3) In my trunk was a hubcap that does not fit my wheels. My hubcaps are 11' across and this hubcap has the same Chrysler script but it is only 10" across. What does that belong to? Question 4) A local tire shop will powder coat my rims for $28 each which seems like a good deal. Would that interfere with the hubcaps or trim rings? I'm inclined to stay with paint as it is original. Any thoughts?
  2. Greetings, My 1948 Desoto Custom S11 with tip toe trans needs a new transmission solenoid, to stop the transmission from jumping into neutral from 3rd gear when it hits 35-40mph. All fluids are correct, wiring is intact, and this is the issue. Can anyone help? Thanks, Stu from LA.
  3. I have a 1948 Chrysler Windsor. It had two broken cowl side mirrors when I got it. I have not found any reproduction Chrysler mirrors. I assumed I would have to get someone to restore what came on my car, but they do not even match the chrome trim, so I'm assuming they were not OEM. Maybe they were off another Chrysler product or period car? The mirrors that came on the car also had visible bolt heads and very curved arms. I notice that '40s Ford reproduction mirrors like Bob Drake sells are close to the same style, though they have hidden bolt heads. Does anyone know if the Ford mirrors would fit? The Bob Drake catalog does not give measurements and when I emailed the company they gave me "about" measurements. Somebody else must have wondered this.
