Help With 20's Chrysler

Recommended Posts

Hey I’m new to this forum and I joined because I have a really old Chrysler car that I am not sure how difficult it is to get parts for and I need help getting parts.

Cool car. Looks like a 1926-1928. Scroll down to the Chrysler Products section of the forum for help there. Is the instrument panel there? If so, does it have a rectangular FEDCO plate on the dash? Looks kinda like this....

Looks like LC591C. That would be a 1928 Model 62 six cylinder coach. Built in September of 1927. 11,154 of that model were built.

It also looks like someone tried to pry the plate off.

Do you have any idea where I could get parts?

There are a few places to get parts. Make a list and post them in the Chrysler Products Buy and Sell section below the General Discussion section.

You may also want to join the Walter P Chrysler club too.  Should be lots of help there for tracking down parts.

Hi,

How much of the car body is actually there?

From your pictures, this car should be considered a parts car. It appears that the top half of the body, doors, body wood, spoked wheels and lots of other stuff is missing. While it is possible, with time, to find parts for your car, they could end up costing you a LOT more than the car is worth.

 If the car is of sentimental value to you, then you may want to persevere with a rebuild, but talking from experience, if I were you, I would look for a donor car to buy for parts, or better still, find a complete car to restore and use this one for parts.

 I'm not being unkind, or trying to put you off, but think long and hard, before you invest thousands of dollars in parts, and six to eight hundred  hours of labour. Have a look at the Chrysler for sale section, there is a 1926 tudor that the guy wants less than 2 grand for it.

My 2c worth.

all the best

Viv.

It was a convertible and there was no top half of the body. There is no wood spoke left but I do have the wheels and the body is completely intact and it is off of the ground.

No. It was originally a two door coach as Dave Mellor NJ stated.

Does the serial number indicate it was a tudor coach or the lack of folding top hardware  at the back of the body ?

The Fedco number is just that - a number. There is no information to be had from it other that a suggestion of an approximate production date.  Not like more modern Id plates with all sorts of info on them

 Do you have the page for the earlier models with the Fedco plate?

The metal in the body was framed with wood. In addition, the entire top half of the body might have been wood with a cloth covering, or the metal for the top is either missing or is lying in the car. Parts for Chryslers are not easy to find, and some parts, like the wood will have to be made. If you believe in the minimum wage and want to make more than 25 cents an hour, this is not a car to restore. However, Chrysler sixes of this era are fantastic cars, and are great drivers. AS others have suggested, buy a more complete car and use this for parts..
