  1. Does anyone have any knowledge about the hubcap "skins" that are offered on eBay for $60.00 9for the 11"; they offer the 10" for $50). They say you uncrimp the old skin along the rim and replace it with the new skin. I'd be interested in any experience you might have with them as to quality, installation, etc.
  2. I have3 related questions about the chrome on my 1948 Chrysler sedan: 1) Is all the trim on my car chrome, or is any of it stainless steel? 2) What do you recommend as far as polishing compounds for chrome and/or stainless go? 3) How does one go about replacing glass, and replacing , or restoring the chrome trim around the four wing windows (the trim that is attached to the glass itself)? Can this be detached and rechromed when new glass is installed? How? By heat gun?
  3. I have a 1948 Chrysler Windsor Sedan. I recently purchased a center brake light housing that had been re-chromed. It is better than mine, but I was wondering about the grooves in the center of the housing that run the length of the car. Are these supposed to be black? If so, what kind of paint would I use and how does one paint on chrome? The hood, trunk, and side emblems also have paint on chrome, though it is an orange-red. Does anyone know the proper paint color for this red?
  4. I happened to read a trouble shooting Q&A column in the latest Hemmings. The guy had brakes frozen up. Part of the response was to never leave your parking brake on. Is this true? I block my wheels, of course, because there is no back-up to the brake, but I prefer redundancy when it comes to safety. Is leaving the parking brake on a bad idea?
  5. Hello All, I'm hunting a Sportsman! I'm helping my buddies wife surprise him with a 30th anniversary present in May, so time is of the essence. Hopefully it is not pheasant red or monsoon maroon. I need a fully restored car or really solid survivor. I found one in CA, but the guy just isn't moving fast enough. I'm located in State College PA and am willing to travel anywhere for the right color and am realistic on the pricing. If you know of one , please contact me at 570-220-2276 or at eric@greenvalleymotors.com. Thanks, Eric Allen
  6. 1948 Lincoln Continental A salvage yard in Colorado is moving out some older cars to make room for more recent vehicles that make up a larger portion of its business. One of the star cars in the exodus is a true American Classic: a 1948 Lincoln Continental that is whole and beautiful. This car is powered by a 351 Ford engine linked to the original manual transmission. There is rust in the rockers but overall the car is clean. The photos speak well for this desirable car. Transport is available. $4200 Doc Lipton of doc_lipton@yahoo.com

  14. 1948 Packard 8 deluxe, color is Egyptian Sand, model 2262, serial # 226229972, lovingly cared for and remarkably well preserved luxury motor car! It has lovely beige/tan exterior, 288 cubic inch inline 8 cylinder engine, manual transmission, 120 inch wheelbase, and remarkably low mileage, 17890 miles since new. It drives and rides and handles as new. This exceptionally low mileage car is nicely equipped with options: front and rear handsome bumper guards, fender skirts, radio, clock, and backup light. The original jack is in its unopened box in the trunk, original spare tire, owners manual, other papers, and a thick service manual. This handsome car is equipped with wide whitewall 760 X 15 bias ply tires. Paint, upholstery, headliner, and instrument panel are in excellent condition. Very minor blemishes: narrow two inch long chip in paint on edge of hood drivers side, at bottom of passenger side door the stainless molding has been scraped, pictures of these 2 included; also a hairline scrape 6 inches long at bottom of rear door on passenger side; and a couple minor scratches on front of hood below the hood ornament, no pictures included because I doubt it they would show up in a picture. These are not obvious to the average admirer of the car, only to someone inspecting, looking for any flaws. Reduced to $22,500 (U.S. dollars). 336-765-8312, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA. Email for more pictures: wwhitfield@triad.rr.com delivery available world wide.
  15. Hi All, I just joined the AACA forums so I hope I'm not breaking some forum guidelines here, but I have a question for anybody who might be in the know about these things. I recently bought a '48 Dodge 1/2 (hence the thread title, I guess). It still has the original L6 flathead in it that's recently been rebuilt. It runs pretty solid and most of the truck is in fairly decent working order. However, I'm trying to spruce up on a few things such as the brakes, the carburetor (sp?) and a few other things. My question is, does anyone have any suggestions for parts dealers or, more preferably, websites where I can go to find parts/manuals for a truck this old that uses a lot of it's original parts. Below is a few things I'm looking at right now in particular. Any help would sure be appreciated! 1. The drum brake shoes 2. A front/rear disc brake conversion kit 3. 6 to 12 volt electrical conversion kit (it uses positive ground now) 4. Miscellaneous reproduction parts such as lights, door window handles, etc. 5. Shop manuals Like I said before, any points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the help and I look forward to participating in some awesome discussions on the forums! -Spanky
  16. I just purchased this car a couple days ago from a gentleman for $1500 who had it sitting in his garage for 26 years. car fires right up (after changing coil) has been converted to 12v has original interior in good shape. it has a little rust here and there but nothing a little sanding wont fix. the chrome on it looks fantastic. has original wheels and tires and has 2 original spares with original tires. now that that is out of the way, time for the problems i am having. i need a wiring diagram because the headlights do not works along with other things with wires disconnected and i dont know where they go. i have found a website P15-D24 Homepage that has helped me a little but i am having trouble finding parts. is there a website out there that i can find parts? i have also found a reprint of the original repair manual but it doesnt include a Wiring Diagram, is there anybody out there that can help me?
  17. I know more about Fords than Buicks, but I am trying to help out my uncle who as a '48 Super that he's trying to get running. He has a guy working on it and we are apparently looking for an intake manifold. The one that was on the car has a large hole on one side and the mechanic says it is beyond repairing. I was down there this weekend (car is about 60 miles south of where i am) and took a picture of it. It has 4 bolts where the carb attaches. You can see a picture of what we need here. If anybody should have one, know where I might look, or at least pass along a little more detail on what we need, would be greatly appreciated. Proving to be very challenging trying to find this...

  21. Hi everyone. For those of you who helped me on my last few posts, thank you very much. The car is coming along very nicely. A few more odds and ends on the wiring side of things and I will be very happy. I have a question on the paint though. One of the previous owners clipped off a piece of the metal tag under the hood so I dont know if this car is supposed to be 1 color or 2. I have attached pictures of the plates under the hood to see if anyone out there would know what color my car is SUPPOSED to be since the colors on there now are definitely not the right ones. Any input on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  24. I'm posting this for a friend here in town, and have it posted in the general ads too. It's spring cleaning time and this ol Stude's days are numbered. He's not a car guy, so this thing will be hitting the big electro-magnet in the sky very soon, unless somebody drags it off. 48 Stude 2 door Commander, no engine or trans in car, but he does have the original tranny and some of the engine. (6cyl/3-speedOD) Rust in the floorboards and trunk floor. Not sure about the frame. The body is solid enough to save but could also be parted out. He just pulled it out of the weeds and set it up on blocks. He also took a bunch more pictures which are posted on the Flikr site below. $ 300 obo Phil http://www.flickr.com/photos/30878003@N06/ Contact me or call him direct: Rick 812-243-9962 or richard.jones at cinergy.com<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
