    Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

    Well finally had time to get the 47 Dodge running! A new battery, reinstalled the gas tank, freed up the water pump and installed the radiator. I also had to pull the transmission and get the flywheel freed up. Beyond that, it fired right up! Hardly any smoking at first and we ran it for about 45 minutes with no issues. All gauges worked with oil pressure, temp and amps all normal. Even the gas gauge, lights, horn and wipers work! Radio hums but no signal. Here is a video of the car running. Apologies for the poor resolution. Next up will be getting the brakes working and new tires. From there, it should be a driver!

    1951 Chrysler Limosine on Craigslist

    Just realized I may have posted this in the wrong spot. If someone can move it, I'd appreciate it.
  3. Not mine and looks pretty crusty, but saw this 1951 Chrysler Windsor Limo locally on Craigslist here in Vancouver. https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/cto/d/1951-chrysler-windsor/6464977277.html

    1954 Chrysler Trim Clips? Help!

    Thanks for the leads. Very helpful. I will get started on some searching tomorrow.
  5. I've been stalled on my 1954 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe for some time now due to needing to source trim clips. I need many of them as they are disintegrating or in many cases missing from when the previous owner stripped the car down. Anyone have a stockpile or any leads on where I can get them?

    Sweet car. Looking forward to seeing your progress!

    Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

    I'm in regular contact with the 90 year old fellow I bought it from. He used it on his wedding in 1950 and has described how every blemish it carries came to be. I'm going to get it running and driving safely and enjoy it as is.

    Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

    Been quietly cleaning up and putting together my Canadian 49 Dodge and super happy with how good everything is on it. No rust-through anywhere and even the underbody still has black paint covering it. It's been inside all its life, and it shows. Attached are a few pictures of the work done so far. I'm leaving the grille off until I get the radiator installed. It and the gas tank had been pulled, dried and stored before the car was put away in the 1960's.

    Yeah, it's my underground garage beneath my house. I have 25 parking spots for myself and guests. Okay, I lie. It's an apartment

    The car is home with me, and after a few hours of polishing you can see the original paint is going to shine up nicely!

    Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

    Thanks for the kind comments and thanks for helping to post the pictures to the thread. I take possession on the weekend. It's nice too, because I bought it without paperwork and then the previous owner found all the manuals, invoices and registration the other day! I will post pictures to this thread as I put it back together. I am going to perform a sympathetic restoration on it and preserve as much of the originality of this car as possible.
  12. I just purchased this time capsule 1947 Dodge Deluxe from the 90 year old son of the original owner and I thought I'd share. Original paint should polish up with great patina and the original interior is nearly immaculate. There is no wear on any part of this interior. No rust. All there, with rear fenders and some trim, etc started to be removed many years ago. We still can't find the bumpers (which they had re-chromed) but they might still be lurking. If they are not, anyone have a lead on them? This is a Canadian Plodge. Thankfully, the engine is free with clean oil and they were wise enough to remove the gas tank and rad and clean them out many years ago to avoid fouling.

  13. Here is a picture of the car as I bought it a couple of months ago.. The correct hubcaps are in the trunk.. about 10 of them. I actually have twice as much duplicate items as missing ones... including a complete spare flathead 6 if anyone needs anything.

    Parting Out A 1954 Chrysler

    Hey there, Do you still have this parts car? I will send you a pm. Kent,
  15. Below is a picture of my 1954 Chrysler Windsor that is now and running driving car again. Thankfully, it was always straight and rust free so painting it came on budget. I bought the car as a basket case, having been pulled all apart to restore many years ago by the previous owner before being abandoned. Very soon, I will start to reassemble the stainless and chrome trim, but know some stuff is missing like the scripts, some window trim, etc. Anyone here have a parts car I could send a list to shortly and buy the missing links to my completed car?
