Dear All,

You may have noticed the forum icon which appears below.



I thought I would let you know where I found it and where it originated.  When I was a teenager I visited the 1964/65 Worlds Fair in Flushing, NY.  The icon was made from my original entry ticket to the Chrysler exhibit. 

It was a great time filled with wonderful thoughts for what the future would be like in the year 2000 and beyond.  Space travel was the talk of the day.  Stereo & Color TV were the new technologies and computers were just SciFi.   Well we are not flying around in Jetson’s cars but that’s probably a good thing since I am not a lover of high places.  My family’s first car was a 65 Plymouth Fury and since then a number of Chrysler Products have followed me home. 

I just thought I would share the reasoning behind the icon.

Kim,

Attached are the directions for using the Atlas Split Rim Tool.  Once you have collapsed the split rim it is the same as changing a bicycle tire.

I hope this helps and I will post a copy of the doc in the Technical section.

Good Luck, see attached pdf file

Rusty,

The gauge assembly should some how be attached to the plate that the cover screws on to.  My gauge was completely gone and I replaced it with a modified repro Ford gauge.  The only original parts were the base plate and the cap. 

See link for details:

Also,

Any pictures you could provide would be helpful. 

Tks,  Chet…

Craig,

If you are talking about the metal window trim pieces, they popup on ePay every now and again.  Body parts are generally a hard find.

Nice car Bob.

I think the 32 & 33 are examples of the best cars Plymouth made in the decade.  After the depression, labor and materials were cheep and the cars of that era were really spectacular in comparison to the previous 28 & 29 model years.

Welcome to the forum,  Chet...

Gary,

Does the tail pipe go straight out past the rear bumper or does it curve out at the rear wheel well.

I curved mine out at the Passenger side wheel well because there didn’t seem to be enough room to get around the gas tank.  I would be very interested in seeing how it was originally mounted

Any good shop that does re-chroming could build up the missing metal and re-chrome the piece.  The point being...,  it isn't cheap.  I have similar issues with my 29.

It's in the Plymouth Instruction Book.  Page 67 

You are adjusting for 1/16" (0.125) clearance between the drum surface and the brake pad.

If you are having something custom made you might want to measure your car just in case there is a slight difference.

Hay Doug,

A picture is worth a thousand words.  I can't wait for this cold weather to go back north where it belongs. 

Take care,

Crag,

Sorry, I was out in Delaware this past weekend but forgot to snap the picture.  Sorry but it will be another two weekends before I am out there again.

Sorry, Chet...

Dan,

My 29's body plate is HAYES BODY CORP. GRAND RAPIDS MICH.



My 1948 has a Briggs body but I am not sure when Plymouth started using Briggs bodys.

My 1948 body tag:

Craig,

I will take a picture over the weekend.  My car is in storage.  Basically mine are a slotted round bolt.  Just by looking at the bolt head I would think quarter inch.   My assumption is that they are original.
