Yes, for some reason, there are no numbers available from the 1929 Plymouth production year.

That is interesting, but thats not a Chrysler Information is it ? Isnt it the books author’s list. Or is the data from a official site from Chrysler Corporation? Neat info I just wish you had it for my dual spare cowl rumbleseat roadster 

cheers

Here is a 1929 Chrysler that I saved from further deterioration here in Oregon. I got it by trading my 1967 Plymouth Belvedere station wagon for it. I sold it to a friend in Michigan and he sold it to a guy who got it running and put the nice tires on it.

Those 1929 Chrysler 75 roadster production numbers are also in other Chrysler books that I have, including the "70 Years Of Chrysler" by George Dammann.

Ok John,

     I am sure there correct Just wondering where the original print stuff cane from, would love to see the real print typed data sheets, as said my father had a 1928 Instruction Manual reprinted for guys in the ply club thirty five years ago and since they only made a 28 plymouth under the chrysler name in 28 for three months the manual was super rare he typed letter after letter to chrysler corp for like 7 years and they finally gave permission for reprint with it saying approval by chrysler for the plymouth club not for resale. So Just curious

Thanks for the info John

You and everyone else in the prewar mopar community. Too bad the museum is closed, I'm sure they have the info. 
Friggen hoarders ! 

 

I spoke to John Gunnell who authored some of these types of standard catalogs and he said he was challenged by the editors of Old Car years ago to gather the data. According to John it came from several locations such as Wards Automotive and info at the museum that was accessible at the time but he did not recall what the literature was specifically. Funny how we're left with trusting a 3rd party for the data isn't it ? As a research enthusiast it's very frustrating and disturbing to say the least.... It's like someone saying "just trust me, it's correct".  BS ! I don't trust any of the numbers till I see factory documented proof.

I have no idea where it is now. I wish I did. As far as I know, it is still in Michigan. This is how it got there....
