1933 dodge sedan 4 door body i found, questions though

Recommended Posts

I found this body, I am thinking of buying, however, the two air vents on the hood do not look original or even close to my 1933 dodge which has 1 vent on the center. is this body a 33 dodge body or is the guy wrong and it is another style of body/mfg?

Square edges on top of windshield lead me to think it is more likely a 31 or 32 model year. Dual cowl vents are more likely DeSoto or Chrysler than Dodge or Plymouth. What the heck is the story with the rear window?

 

Looks like the body number tag is still on the firewall, that should give some information. At least the one on my '33 Plymouth starts with the engineering code for the car.

The thing is the body has the DUAL SUICIDE doors. so i think its a 33 but cant be sure.

At least on Plymouth, that '32 had that too.

It's a 1932 Plymouth PB by the look of the sharp upper, front corner of the front door and the firewall stamped pattern. The rear section of the body has been altered.

why did they have the two holes on the cowl if they could not be opened past the hood?

The hood had two corresponding openings to let fresh air in. This configuration was used on 1931-1932 Chrysler products. Zeke

But they could. See them in the PB roadster:

oh, now i see it. 

 

i want the 4 door i posted above, however I think the rusted bottom doors and a-pillar's that hold the front passenger door are a bit to rusted and will need major repair to the lower portion. 

 

but a bit of work never killed anyone, just not sure yet.
