My Latest Acquisition: 1938 Chrysler Royal Coupe

Coming up to four months ownership with my ‘38 Chrysler. Its been a very good car. I’ve been tinkering away at it, continuously making it better.  My wife joins me for a weekly cruise. Sort of date night.  We Head out. Grab a coffee. Chat in the car, get caught up on life and work. We both are quite busy in our lives. I find that we need to get caught up a couple times a week, at least. 
 

My wife likes my Chrysler. She’s not a “car” person in general. Cars are really just a necessity for her mostly.  Yet I can tell, she is a little fond of this one. 
 

Here’s a shot from our cruise last Sat evening.  The car is just wonderful and running really well.  There has been no second guessing the decision to purchase this one.

Thanks for the update! We have used our Chrysler for an “unwinder” cruise as well.

Jeff, I'd love to see a few photos of your Chrysler, out on a cruise! Feel free to post here, or email me. Thanks,

Next step is to dial in the gear ratio That suits my driving area. 
 

Currently the Royal has 3.90 gears in the rear. Other Options I have are 4.11 and 4.30. Thinking the 4.11 will suit me best. Plus it has OD.
