  1. I love 3onatree, that being said.....if I was going to put a floor shifter in a car that never had one from the factory, it would be a 5 or 6 speed so I could reap the benefits from OD or double OD. I realize this not the OP's chosen path, just my opinion. EDIT. Put one of these on there and no ones the wiser til you start rowing gears.
  2. Now here is a town sedan without the afore mentioned extra knob and jewel.
  3. Under the emblem in the center of this picture is your map lite, I didn't know it was supposed to flash either. edit. what a terrible picture so sorry.
  4. Forum member Pflaming made one check his content.
  5. You will never regret buying this, or one like it.......under 200 clams. https://www.amazon.com/Central-Hydraulics-Ton-Shop-Press/dp/B006ZBB7YG
  6. Soak the leather seal in oil overnite, it should swell back up.
  7. Terrible advice......why don't you practice on it.....metal work, paint skills, welding....get better at using fillers or improve your sanding skills. Scrapping should be the last resort.
  8. I've never seen that before......but I've never owned or driven the rare Town Sedan before. Here is a regular sedan dash, note they have different woodgrain also.
  9. Less pictures of you and more of the car......lol. Am curious about the red jeweled socket. Plymouthy Adams is our town Sedan man, Don Coatney is your clutch guy, Hemmings Motor news has all kinds of Radio repair and modern upgrade vendors. Casper50 has gone thru his clock and has it working.....personally the quartz conversion seems a better option to me. Did I say more pictures? Try Andy Bernbaums or Roberts motor parts or vintage power wagon for heater valves. But a copy of Hemmings motor news and read it from front to back for vendors.
  10. $1,500.00.........Thats not a deal thats a steal, worth it at double the price.
  11. https://www.ebay.com/itm/dodge-automatic-transmission-adapter-for-230-251-engines/273624908540?hash=item3fb550c2fc:g:byQAAOSwk3Rbssij
  12. If you get ice cream every time you go for a drive you are going to need to go for more walks.....lol.
  13. I was looking at a cheap 2 tonner Robert[already sold] not an expensive half ton pickup....lol.
  14. 727s take more horsepower than the poor old flathead can afford to give, a 904 or a 518 OD would rob less.....but I suppose any of them would be peppy compared to a fluid drive.
  15. On the same site for $600 dollars also out of Lethbridge. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/lethbridge/49-dodge-2-ton/1437954244?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true If it was here in Nebraska it would be mine already.
  16. When I was a child I remember the WWI vets marching in our 4th of July parades........some on horses also, the last of the real Calvary.
  17. Reg, I'm going by my gut and saying its not a 42 Canadian Dodge simply because they are based on a plymouth dash and that is not a 42 plymouth glass. A 42 plymouth example.
  18. How about a 1939 DeSoto.......Looks close.
  19. Not a 40 plymouth either but getting close....
  20. How about a picture or two of said rubber boots......so the rest of us non Vert owners can brainstorm too.
  21. 75 years ago today they were boys and young men, they suffered through the gangster era of the 20s, the depression era of the 30s.......and were asked to step up one more time to rid the world of tyranny in the 40s and 50s. Hitler, Stalin, Musollini, Franco, Tojo and somewhat later Mao......what a collection of A$$holes the the world had to deal with...the Last of the Dictators bent on world domination. The Greatest generation is now down to its last few Veterans and in the next 10 years it is likely they will all be gone. So if you know a WWII vet, give him or her a hug or call or drop a letter letting them know how much they mean to us.....Most of them will mumble their thanks and proclaim that they did nothing special, anyone could have done it they will say [don't you believe it] then with a teary eye or a steely gaze they will tell you they are not heroes, only the men who sacrificed their lives can claim that distinction. Thank you for reading this.
  22. In the electrical section of the shop manual. E-bay, amazon....etc.
  23. Beautiful truck......I really like the plate repairs on the fender and in the bed....we used to take a big coffee can cut it then roll it out and flatten it for repairs.
