36 Plymouth


Recommended Posts

If you do not belong to the Plymouth Owners Club, then that is what you need to join to perhaps get some advice and find other owners of 1936 Plymouths.

Thank You both for your helpful replies.  Nothing worse than searching for something that likely is not out there, and that everyone (except me) knows is not out there.  I tried the Plymouth Owner's page as well, with no luck so far.  That being said, you never know what comes up unexpectedly - but knobs do take a lot of use and abuse over 85 years.  So maybe not that surprising ?

Sounds like an opportunity to make what you need and a few extras to sell. 3D printing can be your friend on the project if you have a good original to work from.

Wow ! That's a lot of information I would not have guessed at !  Thank You !!!

While the e-Bay listing is most interesting, there was no convertible power top till 1940 if I understand correctly.

That tells me that these knobs were remade; He's 'reaching back' to make his new knobs applicable to earlier years.

No complaint there - just the opposite !  I still need what I need, and this is a valued, real option !

I'd say that I'll  use just this, but I also need knobs for glove boxes, wipers etc... Gotta think about it !

 

New manufacture also explains the 'set screw' in the side of each knob - so as to fit a variety of male end sizes protruding from the dash.

 

Plus O/D's - and so the knobs - were made for more upscale makes - given O/D was not available for Plymouth until 1952 - and Dodge until (??)  

Of course Desoto and Chrysler had O/D's much earlier, starting 1934... but not Plymouth.  A friend says that O/D's could be 'dealer options' for

Dodge and Plymouth in earlier years - something I know nothing about.

 

Looks like someone else has cleverly used Terry Bond's 3D printer idea.  Wish I had the equipment and skills to do just this very thing myself.

I should look into this, so if I can learn it --  I can then "go wild" !!
