Hello, I am interested in all kinds of hot rods but as with most of us in our sixtys the old standby early solid axle corvettes, Model A coupes and sedans, 39/40 Ford Coupes, 33/34 Coupes, etc are my favorites. I owned some of these in my earlier days, and of course, wish I hadn't sold any of them. Having said that, I now find myself a owner of a 28 Chrysler Coupe, Model 52. The body/paint/interior are all very nice. It runs but the mechanicals are in need of work. I am torn between restoration(mechanical parts are hard to find) and turning it into to a resto rod with no or only minor modifications to the exterior/interior. The choice is always a hard one particularly since there aren't many early Chryslers around. Any thoughts?

I see through a recent thread another member is doing the same thing to a 28. Maybe he and I can commiserate and or help each other.

Oh yes, I am looking for ring and pinion gears and third member bearings. The third member froze up the other day.

Thanks for any comments. Alan Walker.

I guess the next few days, weeks or months looking for that rear end will tell you if you really want to restore that 28 or not. Try placing a free wanted ad in the classifieds on this site for that rear end. I found this 28 last fall but I don't remember if it has a rear end. I won't be going down there until fall again so I won't be able to help you. Good luck finding that rear end.
