    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    Well they have the back to the rear seat. I wonder if the bottom would be the same as the rear seat of a coupe?

    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    Looks like at least the back seat frame is in it.

    I really hope so. I wouldn't mind having a convertible.

    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    Would the seat bottom and back rest from a 54 Desoto convertible work?

    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    Its the body and frame and has the top frame but no interior, motor, or transmission.
  7. Ok I’ve found the shell of a 52 Cranbrook convertible. It has no motor or transmission and no interior. I know where a 52 Cranbrook Sedan is that’s complete and was running and has overdrive. What interior parts can I use for the convertible and what exterior/ trim parts?

    Do you ever find yourself, even after promising yourself not to, getting distracted by other potential projects tempting you? I've got my Dodges, and Desotos and now I found a lady in Asheville that has a 52 Plymouth convertible, a 64 Valiant convertible with parts cars and 2 50 model suburbans for sale for reasonable prices. Dammit, dammit, dammit lol

    Emergency brake install

    No this has a completely modern drivetrain under it. Previous owner put a 350sbc in it with a turbo 350 transmission and a Chevy rear end. I know it’s blasphemy but that’s what I’m working with right now

    Emergency brake install

    Ok to everybody who has swapped out the rear ended on a D24 to something more modern. What did you do for emergency brakes? How did you use the existing ones on the newer axles?

    She came home today

    Right now there is no motor in it because the previous owner had a cracked a head on the 350 that was in it and parked it where it sat for 10+ years. I'm debating on going back with a 350 simply because that's what it's set up for. I am purchasing an old 77 Dodge ambulance for 300$ just so I can snatch the 360 and transmission out of it with hopes of having it rebuilt and dropping it in here maybe or I have another business coupe that I haven't started on that I may put the 360 in.

    She came home today

    After months of hiding her from my girlfriend, I finally confessed to her about getting another car. Mainly because I brought it home and couldn’t hide it from her. She’s not 100% original but she’s mine now.
