Unfortunately, the coupe windshield is different than the sedans so the moulding is different too. I don't understand why there coupes are different with so many coupe specific parts. I have extra mouldings for the sedans but that's won't help you. sorry! Good hunting.

Thanks for the quick reply, I appreciate it.  The hunt continues.

I didn't realize that the coupe windshields and garnish mouldings were different from the sedans Just checked in the parts list and there it was. It would have been so easy to assume that all the '36 Dodge bodies were the same. Continuing education for the old guy.

Possible help for anyone looking for '36 Dodge parts - I found two ads - one in the AACA magazine and one in the Dodge Brothers monthly publication

1.AACA - NOS and used parts for 1936 Dodge, also 1935-42 Dodge  Plymouth and De Soto parts. NOS fenders, hoods, wheels, hubs and most all parts on the 1936 Dodge coupe and sedan. Rebuilt items and small pieces as well as engine parts and pieces. (912) 663 5307 (Georgia)

2. DB Magazine - 1936 DB Parts - Too many to list. Joe (773) 586 4049  or (715) 445 2573.

I'm in the process of getting in contact with these folks myself. It looks as if they could help a lot of us.

The coupe bodies taper inward more towards the cowl area. That's why floor boards are narrower, too. Coupes, like pick up trucks, position the driver further forward toward the windshield than regular sedans to maximize the available payload space in the rear. I've never gotten around to looking this up, but when I think of this, I wonder if the dashboards are narrower or not.

I may have to check with them as well.  Any experience with them yet?  I'm still looking for some knobs and whatnot for the interior, and of course the elusive gas pedal!

Thanks for this Hudsy - I really did not know where the specific differences were. This helps me to understand why some parts that common sense says should be the same just aren't.

Vette-kid - I have been in touch with Mike Sisco the AACA lead. He has a huge inventory of parts he got out of an estate. He still has a lot of stuff to inventory but is willing to look. Seems like a really nice guy.

I have not yet been able to talk to Joe of the Dodge Brothers Magazine so nothing to report there. But I'll keep trying.

One further bit of trivia regarding coupe differences that I'll mention is that, because the driver is positioned a little farther forward toward the windshield than a sedan, the steering wheel sits a little bit higher. The piece between the steering column and the bottom of the dash is a little shorter, height wise, than the steering column mount on a sedan.

Anyone have personal dealings with Mike in GA before I mail a big money order to him?  I'd sure feel stupid if I got scammed.  I did talk to him, he did send pics, his price seemed fair, and I'll be happy if the parts are as described.  I have no reason to believe that he is not an honest man selling off a lot of D2 parts.   If, however, my money order goes to a PO box and I never hear from him again, well,  I'm gonna be upset.

I have only spoken with Mike and the conversation did not raise any red flags.

I have also finally contacted Joe in IL (Chicago) yesterday. He's 84, has a large stash of '36 Dodge D2 parts at his other place in Iola WI and is looking to sell them. Also seems to be a nice guy but he wasn't sure if he had what I need. He'll let me know when he has a chance to go to Iola to look through his collection. He says he has a quantity of body parts - doors, fenders etc. as well as mechanical parts. He'd be happy to hear from anyone needing '36 Dodge parts.

36 D2 Coupe, thanks for replying.  I mailed the money order this morning so I guess I'll be the guinea pig.  Mike doesn't seem to show up on facebook or any web searches I've done.  He did send some pics of a shipping container loaded with parts and he has some stuff I need so I took the chance.  I try to be honest and fair in all my dealings and hope that others do the same.  So far, so good.
