Is there any possibility that this vehicle is Canadian? It seems that the Canadian models sometimes used Plymouth bodies, and Dodge trim, etc. I'm certainly no expert on those models, but I have seen some on other websites that looked a bit out of the ordinary. Still beautiful cars, nonetheless, but different.

Does he have any '38 Dodges / parts? I need window garnish trim for both sides of my 1938 D8 business coupe. I am also looking for tail light and headlight bezels.

Thanks, Tom

That car looks like a 42 to me, surely not a 46. The 46 had the new grille treatment.
Various places have varying pictures.

I stand corrected. Thanks for the correction.

This says the fluid drive appeared in the 41.

For internal engine parts on old cars these guys are incredible. Check them out, it's worth it. What's impressive, if they don't have it in stock, they make it.

Looks like a go

Seems to have a lot of the parts "there" and it looks solid... I just can't figure out what that white stuff is on it... some kind of mold? There was some on the ground too...???

Merry Christmas all
