General Tech / I got a Door Panel Installed!
« on: April 26, 2010, 06:33:41 AM »
Just a side note on this car.  I truely believe this car was ordered to be a showroom queen.  It has just about every option but it is also interesting to note what it did not come with.  This car was ordered without Fender Mounted Turn Signals, Map Light and Clock.  I have added the last two although the Map Light doesn't work   The car did come with Power Bucket Seats, Reclining Passenger Seat, Console with Performance Indicator, Power Windows and Vents, AM/FM Radio with rear speaker control, Remote Trunk Release, Glove Box Light, Factory A/C (yet it has clear glass all around??) and now I discover Door Hinge Covers.  I have a paper trail on this car showing it was built Sept. '64, shipped Oct. '64 and sold new from Canoga Chrysler Plymouth, Canoga Park, CA in March '65.  This car sat at the dealership for 5 months and I can only deduct was a showroom car to show the new for '65 Chryslers.  Imagine driving through So Cal past this dealership in late '64 and seeing this big red convertible on the showroom floor.

My car was a very early build (Sept. '64).  I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

They used those covers on the Imperials and possibly the New Yorkers.  I never saw them on a 300.  Maybe it was an option???? 

Interesting.  I never gave it much thought.  Maybe they were installed on power window cars?

Very nice. 
 
I'm curious about the hinge cover thing.  I've never seen one, what is it made of?  Do the wires for the power vents run in the same bundle as the windows, or are they separate?
 

Thanks Dan.
 
The hinge covers are made out of sheel metal, not sure which gauge.  The wiring for the vent wings is part of the power window wiring in that it is all taped together in one "harness" which passes through to the door.

I got the passenger's side window assembly installed and got the door panel installed as well.  I should be able to tackle the driver's side next week.  It's getting closer!

UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / Convertible Top Questions
« on: April 13, 2010, 01:08:35 PM »
How are your seals that attach to the top of the quarter glass rear run channels? These protrect against air and water entering in the area you are describing. There is no doubt your top is tweaked but the weather seals are important as well. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a company that reproduces them.

A couple of the roller assemblies (quarter window power windows) have stuck rollers(small ones).  What is the best method to free these up?

Does anyone have plate frames from this dealer they would be willing to part with?

Strange.  I've had nothing but great dealings with them.  They did the door panels, convertible top and boot and made the red/black basket weave material for my seat inserts.  All of them were delivered on time.

Have you tried contact SMS Auto Fabrics?  They have a huge inventory of NOS material and can usually send you a sample of what was original to your car.  All they would need is the interior trim code.

General Tech / Two different sized wheels

More than likely they were swapped.
It was very common people to buy two rims and mount snow tires onto them.
They did not care if they matched-only as long as they fit.


 
Snow tires in Southern California and Southern Nevada?  Highly unlikely, I'd say.
