    electric wipers

    I purchased and installed a Newport Engrg. unit in my P15. It's a quality unit and their customer service is very good if you have any questions. I'm very pleased and positively recommend it.

    1946-1948 PLY speedometer

    What causes your speedo to be in error?....new rearend?....diff. tire dia?....diff. trans?....speedo need to be refreshed?.....how great is the error. I have a modified P-15, stock speedo, diff. engine, diff. trans, diff. rearend. I bought the little transducer you see advertised in several auto publications. Told the supplier the diff. between indicated speed and actual speed (via GPS). He customized the unit and it's spot on for less than $100.00. If you need the source let me know and I will dig through my receipts.

    p 15 with dakota swap

    Remember Yanks, ...$12.5K Canadian is about $10K U.S. I'd say not too far off if the build quality addresses what others have warned about. Does it run and drive decent? Yeah, the color sucks and the missing rocker trim are bargaining points in your favor. My opinion,... if you really like the car and can get it for $10K Canadian, "pull the trigger". And,...if you find you paid $1000 to much but enjoy the car for 5 years, that's just $200.00 a year. I'd bet you cold recover that by dialing back on golf, beer, cell phone or cable charges.

    I'm having a top done for the Roadster by a pretty together young man. This as I approached his place a coupla days ago.

    Rare sedan

    Googled '39 Hayes bodied Plymouth and came up with Chrysler, DeSoto and Dodge......No Plymouth! Maybe it was a Dodge I saw thinking the DeSoto and Chrysler would have been larger cars. Now, looking at the pics, I'm reminded of the chrome window trim and the the shape of the top reminiscent of the '39 Mercurys. Handsome car!

    Rare sedan

    That's it,....I think. Woulda swore it was a Plymouth. But that was probably more than 15 years ago. Perhaps memory DOESN'T serve! 😒

    Rare sedan

    A bit OT from this topic, but ever so often I'm reminded of a custom bodied Plymouth I saw at the WPC Museum many years ago. Limit production I believe,....1939-1940 I believe. It was quite elegant. It had a subtle peak developed in the roof that transitioned down the back through the backlight and down the rear deck. I tried Googling it, to share, with no luck. I believe it was a body by Haines, or Haynes, or Hayes. Any one know of this rare and beautiful car or,.....can anyone find an image?

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    I fixed the pic for you 😁 Read your thread and it's quite refreshing to witness your enthusiasm for experiencing the idiosyncrasies of an old car.

    I've driven that route several times and was never aware we were entering or exiting Camp Pendleton..
