1931 Plymouth “barn find” roadster and huge parts haul


Recommended Posts

hi dpcdfan

Would you be able to help me out with sidemount wheel locks and a clamp for my 1930 DeSoto coupe. Same parts as Plymouth I believe. I have posted pictures under "DeSoto" and parts wanted

Thanks for your help

Hi Rick, I didn't get anything like that in this parts load, but it seems like I have a 30 Desoto fender with this unit on it in my storage yard. I'll go over there and check this week. I have tons of Chrysler product California rust free sheet metal from 1928 on up.

 Regards,

 Gary

Hi Gary

Thanks for your response. I did manage to separate the lock assembly, so the only parts I need are the lock cylinder/pins. I am also looking for one more wheel clamp as shown in picture.

regards

Rick

Hi Dave. Yes that would be fine. I As it's a coupe I need one locking drivers side and one non-locking passenger side. I also need a locking trunk handle if you have.

I'd probably get you to send to a friend in S. Carolina who comes to Cape Town regularly. Whereabouts are you? My email address is grahm.goetze@telkomsa.net

Regards,

Graham

I recently bought seven cars, mainly Chrysler products, out of long term storage in an enclosed shed. Most of the cars and parts were put in there over 40 years ago and sealed up. In the group I purchased a 31 Plymouth Model PA roadster with a ton of spare parts, some of which interchange with 32 Plymouth PB and 31-32 Desoto. I’m just beginning to remove the parts from the building and both the car and extra parts will be for sale as I sort through everything to make sure the roadster is complete.

Allan... Good eye!! Yes, the 31 roadster is rock solid. It was in the process of being restored when my friend bought it and put it away in the shed.

Agreed, the car looks rock solid, in the same picture of parts with the tail light bracket there are three windshield support brackets, the lower one in the picture appears to have the 

windshield pivot clamping blocks in it, I have two of them but four are required per car....would they be something you'd be willing to ship to Canada?

 

Thanking in advance,

Dave

Sweet! I did some preliminary body work on the smashed up one, just in case I can't find a replacement. I can do measurements and look at the bolt holes to see if what you have will fit a 31 sedan.
