Thats a pretty car, is that a trunk on the rear? Did your car come with any of the original tools. Do you have an owners manual ? Mine is a 29/30 DA six.

Thanks for the compliment. It didnt come with any of the tools but someday I hope to get a set. Yes that is a trunk on the back, It really adds a lot to the look of the car. I do not have an owners manual. I thought someone said that there were no owners manuals that came out for the car.

This car will need an engine overhaul, brakes redone and it needs to be rewired. But other than those LITTLE things this car is in great condition.

I bought this off of ebay out of Lees Summit Missouri. It was running when I brought it home, but now it is sitting in the garage waiting its turn.

Post some photos of your car.

Thanks from Nebraska, Andrew.

Your car did originally come with an owners manual, service manuals were not avail for these cars. Is the trunk steel or wood/cloth covered, better pict. of the trunk including the inside would be helpfull. Thanks

Cant see in the pics, but on the radiator shroud it clearly says 'Dodge 6'.

Its a 392 with a 4 speed from a GTX or something like that.

And no Chevy 350 like everybody seems to like to use. Although I did use a Corvette front suspension clip. The headlites are 29 and 30 Chev as well.

Ford rear end...

What a bastard it is. Gets a few trophys though.

Hey Jack - Show us a photo of that car when you first acquired it! (Hopefully a "one foot in the crusher" - "I saved it from the scrap heap" version of the original Dodge. Then "all will be forgiven". :rolleyes: ) :D

(BTW: I like the "rust" colored printing you used in the first post. Really matches the car well!)

I have 3 28 Dodges, all 4dr. Sorry no pictures. One is a standard 6 this has manual brakes. Am looking for origional driver side rear bumper for this one. one is a early 28 victory,this has the wood running boards. steel spoked wheels , this would be the 140 series. The other is a 141 series this had mohair interer ,clock mirrow, 21in. wood spoke wheels . the hood is a bit taller & the doors a bit longer. When buying body parts ,always check these items.

OK, Here is a pic of the car when it was offered to me. (the guy kept the wheels and engine, an LA engine) Then a pic that the seller had from some previous owner (farm auction) . Somebody had it chopped (not a bad job) then some one that didnt know what they were doing put some aftermarked front straight axel in it. It steered backwards. Then they ran into the problem of mounting the body back on. The lower skirt of the body was rotted away, hence they couldnt bolt the body back to the frame. It sat in a storage yard for several years where a bunch of the original parts were stolen and finally put up for sale as-was.

I put quite a bit of effort into finding the storage yard in Wyoming where it was stored but none of the phone numbers worked any more and the name and address on the title were not current so what I had was 'as-was'.

A lot of fun, not quite one foot in the crusher but since I could not find any other history or previous owners I only have what the seller sold me.

There is a guy near me that has one of these that is near stock. He likes to frequent some of the same shows that I do and we have a lot of fun with each other.

My car is registered as a 28 Dodge and gets down the road pretty good.

I am also going to put up a pic that I took a couple of years ago that lets you see that it is indeed that same car that was in the Montana farm auction in 03. Compare the paint on the passenger side door.

Jack M, pretty sure I have at least 100 pict. of that car you show in the top left hand corner, I knew the guy that was parting it out and bought alot of stuff from him. I have that identical pict. ( although much clearer) and at least as I said 99 others if you are interested. Dont know how long you have had that car but this guy owned it with the last 10 years or less.

Jason,

This is interesting. Was his name Frank?

I would be interested in seeing some of what you have.

You wouldnt still have the bumpers and related brackets would you?

Kevin B, (above) and I are friends and he is going to take a look thru his stuff for some bumpers as well.

I bought the car early '08.

One thing I figured out about putting together hot rods is that if you take the paint shop out of the mix it takes about 5 years off of the project. I doubt I will ever have another car painted.

His name was Keith, I have a pict. of that car sitting in front of same building with same wheels and it was among all these other pics of similar car with different wheels. This car is obviousely a DA and it is what all of the pict. taken were of. I dont know where this guy got your pic from and never took enough time until now ( that you asked ) to look at these views and see that he sent me a couple different car photos for some reason.

Bumpers are getting tougher to find and even if I did Id hold onto them until I found someone that was doing a resto and needed them no offense, I dont care what you do with your cars since they are your cars.

I do know where there is a VERY nice solid set of Victory Bumpers front and rears, medallions and all still on the car but they are all overseas in Uraguay and the shipping and cost of the items are pretty high.

Id persoanlly find a set of whatevers and use them, there is a couple of nice bumpers on e-pay right now, dont know what they fit but are listed under 192* dodge but are not Dodge. Since original might not be as important to you
