Here's a link to a service manual on its overhaul procedures. This s for a 1955 Chrysler Imperial.

There you go, it's funny that it has taken so much digging to come up with something. Finding anything like that on Chevy's takes a few seconds.

Oh No! You know what they say, "Pay backs a b***h!"
It could get as bad as " What does this fit? ( Not a current question)

Damn, how do you know it isn't a 39 Standard? I should have posted a 39 Standard, they throw people off.

What a beautiful automobile! That is a 1938 Ford 81A 4 Door Deluxe Body Convertible Sedan. Now I have to admit having to look up the proper terminology for this car . All I knew it as was a four door convertible. In finding the right designation for it I also found out they made a little over 2000 of them. Pretty rare indeed!

There was a early Ford V8 shop here in town back in the seventies and they had one of them in there they were restoring. Check this out, it had a chopped top, with the original irons all welded together so it wouldn't fold, then made into a "Carson style" top. It had a dropped axle, it was a very cool vintage hot rod and they put it back to stock, I could have choked them.

I think the reason I always loved the old Fords is I am old enough that when I dreamed of getting my first car for 100 dollars at age 15 the choice was between a 6 cylinder Chrysler, Chevy or V8 flathead ford. The Ford was the hot rod of the 3.

I found my Roadster in South Africa through a fellow here in town that has relatives there. I would have never been able to afford it otherwize. They only made 3862 of them here but being the cheap body there were quite a few sold there.

Ok, Question. What year did Chevy skip building a convertible previous to WW2.

You got it. I am laughing at myself. I think I may have used that question before but did not remember it until after I posted.

Your turn,
Senile old fart
