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) (My parts book lists this only as "Pile" material) 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.
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). I had a reproduction made, but if an original pops up, I am interested. - 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. Found a set... unfortunately, I still need a mounting bracket for the driver's side, as well as a pattern or dimensions for the visors themselves. - 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
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.
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)?
