  1. Also try Auto surplus in Melbourne 03, 98733566 i get a few parts from them
  2. yes Andy TJ richards body for me still would like a Long body one day and yes the long fenders are fully imported cars cheers Gareth
  3. Andy i have the Oz DeSoto but as far as i know they all came with single rear window Have had two and one had the 48 badges on and the other had a 42 rear badge also out of the 4 i had two were wrecks for spares and the side trims were different . Was told that after the war T J Richards did not have enough money to fully tool up for the new models and used their 1940 bodies and grafted the styling cues from the new models to the front ends from Canada . Makes it real fun to find body parts .
  4. There were a thew Desoto's imported back in the 40s along with d24 Dodge's . Was told they came in through Sydney dealer not sure who and that most were diplomatic cars . Funny thing is that all pictures of the Desoto's ive seen were all green
  5. 6 volt electric wiper motor was standard on Australian built plymouths but the linkage is different and set up for RHD . very slow on 6 volt
  6. I run a electric pump on my 23 Dodge brothers for over 20 years have only had a few times where it flooded the carburetor . Filled up the lower section of the carb and would not allow the sliding section to rise. Only thing i would suggest is to put a pressure regulator in as these old girls don't like much over about 1 1/2 pound .
  7. Yes i have them on my car had them still on and all the wrecks i bought still had them
  8. Cool project looking foward to reading this as i have a 33 TJ Richards body sedan Cheers Gareth
  9. I painted my caps with the same paint as the car it was holden commodore red firethorn in acrylic laquer think it was about a vb model it was very close to sumac red the color for those years been on 15 years and havent touched them up .
  10. Sorry i havent got back before now just got back in the shed here is a couple of pictures of vent rubers there is also a place called scotts old auto rrubber in Melbourne they supply the rubber as well be sure it isfor TJ richards body
  11. gday Zoran i had to make mine from an extrusion from Peter Jackson rub ber it came with both sides and you cut off the side you didnt need . At work at moment will try and post pics later tonight cheers gareth
  12. Great video Reminds me when a group of us would drive over to the bay to birdwood run took two days to get to Adelaide from Geelong . Great roadtrips All cars from early 20s two late thirties
  13. Gday Shaneo i have the original motor in my Desoto same body as Plymouth and Dodge just different grills front fenders are different on parking lamps for plymouth. Im running a holden carb on my flathead much easier for spares than original performance is not bad good for about 85km can go faster but just watch the tank guage drop . Have another club member who has a plymouth with overdrive in it can do highway speeds at about 650 rpm less than me . Being that we have the 25" block you can Put the Kew Motors from the later cars was going to put a 250 cubic inch in in my plymouth and auto from a 54 plymouth save the changing in traffic but thats a pipe dream at moment. too many projects on the go. Cheers Gareth
