  1. 1947 Chrysler Windsor garage find finished

    Copy. Thanks Frank. I serviced all fluids except the Fluid Drive since it works great.
  2. 1947 Chrysler Windsor garage find finished

    Finally got a chance to take some interior pictures.
  3. 1947 dodge business coupe

    Pic?
  4. Need help. How do I remove the rear deck?

    That would be awesome. I'm trying to match my door panels but I can only get kinda close.
  5. Need help. How do I remove the rear deck?

    Do you recall how to get to the buttons and how to remove them? Do I just pry them out or pull them with a set of pliers?
  6. Hey guys, I am trying to reupholster the back deck behind the rear seats of my 1947 Chrysler Windsor and don't want to damage it by guessing. Does it just pull out or are there some hidden screws somewhere holding it in? I don't see anything holding it in from looking at it from the trunk. I'm at a loss but I shouldn't be this hard. Thanks

    Andy, very cool. I love the old Polaroids.I try hard to get pictures of my cars, kids, and places so that I can look back and remember snapshots in time. I'll post more pics tomorrow.

    Agreed. Heaters in Tampa, FL only get 3 weeks of use.

    I'll try to get some good pics of the interior to post this weekend; blue molehair. I still need to find a way to clean the stains out of the original headliner; I was thinking of having it professionally dry cleaned... Also, does anyone know how to remove the back deck behind the rear seats? The material is all torn up and I want to reupholster it. Thanks.

    Thanks for the offer. I think I'm just going to check the level and top off if necessary. I flew helicopters in the US Navy for 24yrs and our saying was, "If it ain't broke, don't break it!"

    Thanks. I was also told that the fluid needed to be non-foaming too. Is the stuff at TSC okay to use or just okay for small amount top offs?
  12. 1947 Chrysler Windsor garage find finished

    Thanks. The chrome does have some pitting but I was able to pull all of the rust specks out using Quick-Glo Chrome Cleaner. Does anyone know where to source the Fluid Drive Fluid? I can't find any place that carries the ISO 22 or 32 fluid; I think that's correct (I wrote it down somewhere??).

  14. After purchasing a '47 Chrysler Windsor 4dr that had been sitting in a garage for over 8 years, I have finally got it to a point that I feel the car deserves. The previous owner past away a few months ago and had the vehicle stored away untouched as he was getting too old to maintain or drive it. The widow sold it to me for a great price since she knew I would restore the car back to its original glory and keep it in my family, and most importantly, DRIVE IT. It took me several weeks to accomplish but now the engine runs beautifully with a cleaned up engine compartment and the paint has been properly hand buffed and waxed. The interior was already in great shape but I am meticulously going through and replacing any dash wiring that needs attention due to dry rot. All fluids have been replaced except for the fluid drive since I haven't been able to source the fluid; finding the tranny fluid (SAE 10W) was hard enough to finally locate at TSC. I'm very proud on how she turned out and was able to give the original owner's widow a ride in it today. She was amazed on how it turned out which made me very happy.
