I have a '35 Airstream c-6 Convertible coupe

 

It has a later model transmission (we think its a '39)

We would appreciate it if anyone has any insight into these units - particularly if you have any spare parts or experience working on them.

 

We believe we have figured out how the OD unit works - but have no information on adjusting it before installation

 

Thanks in advance

I like that idea - not sure what color it would be ?  Body color ?  Red ?

Red with the green might be a little too much like Christmas. What would you think of something in the yellow (not too bright) to honey-beige spectrum? On second thought, Maybe a set of beauty rings would be better.

 

Pinstripes:

Jumbo 1936 Plymouth Coupe (CC-1249826) for sale in Grand Rapids, Minnesota

Beauty rings:

I like the look of them on that Dodge - that looks like a '37 hub cap - I have a '37 Business Coupe

While I think that more Plymouths probably came with just the stripe, I think that the more expensive Mopars probably would have been seen with beauty rings. Be careful when you experiment with the rings, they could scratch up your pretty rims pretty easily when you go to remove them.
