  1. 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?

    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?

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

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

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

    Distractions

    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

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    Sun visor measurement

    How far does a Fulton sun visor stick out? I'm ordering a car cover for my D24 business coupe and need to know how much it sticks out. I don't have my car here so I cant measure it.

    finned valve covers

    Does anyone know where to might be able to find some finned valve covers for my 230?

    Big block install

    Ok I’m in the process of getting a title for the shell of a 48 Dodge business coupe that I purchased before I bought my one that had been hot rodded. It currently has a 270 polyhead motor sitting in it that’s not running. During this time a good running 440 with a 727 transmission kind of fell into my lap. I know it’s not original, but if I plan on putting a nova front clip under it or some other front suspension graph/upgrade would a 440 just be too much mass to try to squeeze under the hood?

    270 poly-head swap

    I have a 270 poly-head out of a 56 Dodge with a fluid drive transmission. How hard would that be to drop into a 48 Dodge business coupe?

    Big block install

    What year Durango or Dakota clip would fit under it?
  19. John32369

    Big block install

    Ok, got my coupes mixed up. Thought I was talking about the hot rod but was talking about my original coupe lol. It still has the factory frame not the nova front clip as stated earlier. I apologize lol

    Overdrive swap

    It’s a Windsor

    Overdrive swap

    I have found a 48 Chrysler club coupe with a fluid drive transmission with overdrive but no title for 800$. Will that transmission and overdrive fit my 47 Desoto club coupe?

    46 Desoto brake pin source

    I'm redoing the brakes on my 46 Desoto barn find and want to replace the wheel cylinder pins. Bernbaums is out right now. Does anyone know of another source for them?

    Overdrive swap

    Can you tell by the pics if it’s a New Yorker or a Windsor, or what model it is?

    Overdrive swap

    Oh don’t worry, I wouldn’t scrap it. I was planning on offering parts to anybody here or selling the body to whoever wants it.
