  1. I built the workshop last year so I could finally start working my Dad's car. So exciting! I will also get the 57 coupe he bought for parts, but 600 miles is a long trip. Grandpa bought it used in 1963 for $140 (I have the BOS), and gave it to my Dad to drive throughout high school. He hit a deer in '66, hence the smashed fender and removed bumper. It hasn't ran since '68.
  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). 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
  3. 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

  15. I'll preface this by saying I'm not very knowledgeable about cars in general, but I've always had a thing for classic Mustangs. I've never owned one, but I just saw this ad for a 71 mustang convertible. http://neworleans.craigslist.org/cto/4769712880.html Since I've never even driven a classic Mustang I really have no idea how much that car is worth. Does it seem priced appropriately? Is there anything I should know/look out for when purchasing an old car like this? And what does he mean by "clone"? Please forgive my "newbie-ness" on the subject. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks

  21. Submitted for your consideration is this limited production 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS festival Pacecar that rarely presents for sale outside well known higher end auction venues.Most true Pacecars reside largely in museums and private collections. This example does not have any race history, and is carefully documented. Owner is downsizing private collection to sell a few of these rare editions. This is believed to be among the top 5 examples in the country known.<o:p></o It is important tonote that unlike many other restored examples or replicas, THIS <o:p></o example has been very carefully preserved and restored using all OEM/NOS GM parts literally down to the nuts/bolts hardware for a TRUE all GM restoration.<o:p></o The Festival cars numbered into 100 available units. There were only 43 true Pacecars of which this is #19.<o:p></o Except for the Coker-brand era correct redwall tires for this vintage, this is truly classically restored in the literal sense.<o:p></o It is believed that the current owner is the 5th or 6th owner of this vehicle that has remained all GM stock original all of its known life.<o:p></o Affirming the paintcode specific only to true Pacecars, the ID Plate confirms the paint code number to be “01” making it one of the select factory original clear-coat finished cars. <o:p></o Unlike many other well intended restorations, the details of this restoration include a Pacecar factory stripe is correctly situated partially into the pinstripe matching the placement of the decal on the #1 Pacecar. Very few examples meet this discerning restoration detail.<o:p></o Options were limited to Pacecars. This model is equipped as follows:<o:p></o <o:p></o Colors: White over Blue with white top<o:p></o Engine: Chevrolet 350V8<o:p></o NO AC---------correctfor true Pacecars We believe this to be among THE MOST GM-only correct restored vehicle with NOS parts and the most closely restored to the #1 Pacecar with discerning details. <o:p></o <o:p></o The sale price hasbeen set competitively at $110,000.00.<o:p></o Save the auction commission(s) and buy this now while available for a limited time before headed to auction this fall. We're getting alot of requests to save this for auction to meet our price, however this sale seems more appropriate here among the true collectors. Please contact the undersigned: CA Woodside 615.979.3058 9AM-9PMCST Serious inquiries only please.

  25. I am trying to tie down the years and brands this convertible rear window was used in. It is 27 3/8" wide and 7 1/2" tall. The outside finish is chrome and the inside is painted. The faces of the frame have a curved surface rather than a flat surface. I have am impression that is was used on Chevrolet convertibles possibly from 1940 1941 1942 1946 1947 1948 1949 and 1950, but I'm not sure. It may have been used on other GM products such as Pontiac, Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile or others.
