  1. No signage ......

    .... but does this double stripe on the street mean "Fishtail when Raining" ????? It's the only thing i can come up with at the moment. The reason I ask is that I have tried it before and it does work.
  2. 51 coronet d42 dash refinishing?

    Cadillac, I am in the same boat as you. The 1950 Plymouths were the last cars with the true wood graining on the dash, and the 1952's were painted just a solid gray. But, my 1951 has this, but I don't know what you call it. I would like to be able just to touch my dash up in a couple of places, but don't know where to start.
  3. Sub Zero Challenge

    I had mine out for a drive today after several weeks of being in the garage. Sunny skies & clear roads. Temp was about 32 deg F after several nights of lows in the single digits. No problems starting and the heater & blower motor works great. Running a 180 deg F thermostat.
  4. OT - What's wrong with THIS picture ???

    Yes, "Campbell 66 Express" was the name of the trucking company. There was a terminal in the town where I grew up. Don't know the location of their home office.

  7. Bob, Check with Stephens Performance in Anderson, Alabama. They might have a used one from their yard.
  8. Check your gas cap vent

  9. 53 new yorker trunk switch?

    The only thing i can think of is that it must have illuminated when the headlight switch was in the "parking light" or "headlight" position. It should not be on continuously. Find a "mercury switch" (not a switch from a Mercury) and install it in-line with the wiring, so that it only operates when the trunk is raised. Or, is the light housing not mounted on the trunk lit ?
