    Door won't open. 1952 Dodge coronet

    i once closed my door on my 54 Windsor and a screwdriver was left along the bottom. door did not want to open after that. i forget how i got it open after that, but once i realized what it was i figured it out. capt den

    armrest removal 1954 chrysler windsor convertible

    i could buy new ones if i cut or torch the old ones off. any source for these? dennis
  7. i am trying to remove the armrests. the handles are off, door panel pulled away, but the armrests appear to be bolted to the door from behind them where i cannot see what is there or even get a hand in there. the arm rests are covered with material all around, they do not have bolts under them as in my 53 imperial. i do not see how they could have been put together this way, let alone be removed. funny thing is there is duct tape on the paper panel under the door panel. this was not used in 1954, so someone has been in there. may not be relevant to this issue. does someone know the procedure to remove these? thanks. capt den

    1952 Suburban restoration project

    really cool car. probably very rare today. i love that floor shifter, and even though i need auotomatic for my arthritis, i would occasionally drive that car just for the shifter. good luck with it captden

    4 wheel alignment

    thanks for the replies. worn shackles and bushings are probably the usual culprits. capt den

    1950 Fuel Pump

    if your fuel line to carb runs very close to the exhaust manifold this can heat gas in the line and possibly cause your problem. i moved the line on my car a way from the manifold and that helps, but these cars are known for this problem . some have added an electric pump to eliminate this problem. capt den

    4 wheel alignment

    i read an article on a 51 Plymouth where the man said he ahd a 4 wheel alignment done on the car. is that possible on a 51 Plymouth? i thought only front wheel drive cars get this. also, he said he reset the steering. not sure what he meant by that either. says the car drives so much better. has anyone any idea what was done to this car? capt den.

    1st car show with the coupe

    how does anyone keep a car that long and yet it remains beautiful? i guess it was restored, but few people would spend the money and time to do that car. many parts are not available. a good steering wheel is very difficult to find. anyway, the car is great. capt den
