The vintage bug has hit.

With a 1937 MC Dodge tourer.

Its original but a mungrel at the same time.

Is this your new ride ?

Now your in the "gangster" mob, and you will need to secure a Tommy gun.

Makes car shows so much fun, and draws the ladies in for "posing" too.

Indeed it is the new another ride. This one, I betting, will go downhill 10% faster than the '28.

 

We already have the tommy guns. Our side operation, besides the weddings, is bank jobs. Always recruiting for new members.

 

Some of the Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth enthusiasts will notice unusual qualities on him.

Nice ride! The convertible sedans are fairly rare and really look good!

Thanks, I do like the look of it, it should work well with my '28.

 

Unfortunately, like our '28 we have no documentation on who built the body. The bloke who restored it 10-15years ago has lots of history on it but does not know who was the builder here in Oz.

 

It's insteresting that it's based on a Dodge truck chasis, dash/firewall forward is a truck but the cabin looks more like a '34 styling. No boot/trunk in the rear. The cabin is timber framed not all steal. The engine has the truck serial ie T38****

Its a 25" block, a remote brake booster has been added, the MC doesn't look like the US models but does look original to the car, there is some sort of upper lubrication system installed. Its leaking some coolant. I was told the gearbox and diff has 80-90w oil in them. Do these gearboxes have synchromesh in 2nd &3rd gears?

 

No body builders name on the plate below the Dodge plate on the firewall.

Are the taillights correct? When i first seen it, I thought they were Ford repro's.

Australian body builders would more or less build what ever body the customer wanted. Whether it was on the passenger or commercial chassis.
