    Could not help myself, i spotted this '33 Contenental dash, [not a Lincoln],
    Was over 40% off the price... into my range... made an offer, he took it...
    With a '30-'31 roadster dashrail I think it may replace my '48 truck dash on the sportster... 3 5/8" speedo and tack holes, 2 5/8" gauge hole...
    The dash installed in a car is not mine, it appears to have a glovebox... mine does not... I had never even heard of a '33 Contenental ... anyone else ? 1933ContinentalCoupe (2).jpg DSCN6745.JPG DSCN6744.JPG DSCN6743.JPG

    1933 Continental … looks like a half '32 and half '34 ford... or a mopar step child.

    Smitty, If you don't like the way those sisters look, you can always stop for a Montreal Steak on your way back!

    They were far gone...
    bought 2 pair of rough '30 sportie quarters and a fair tulip...
    left a NASTY pile of cowls, doors and quarters with the seller...
    stopped at Hart's turkey farm for a turkey dinner on the way home...
    sure wasn't Montreal steak...

  11. Smitty, turkey is far better for your heart than that old steak would have been:rolleyes: anyhow.

    she is a twisted sister,
    but a little jenny craig and she might get back to being a Henry's Lady again..
    note the difference in '29-'31 cabriolet and sport coupe quarters...4th pic.
    he had the back half of a '28 roadster...
    he said a quarter was rusted through at the beltline... said the tulip was there... I have a rt. '28 sportie quarter, hoped it would patch most of the bad quarter...
    WOW, it laid upside down and was blown out from the B pillar back to the decklid... the tulip had the bolt holes not much else... said it has a great subfloor and lower quarters... $500... i'ld rather take the cash and buy repop subfloor and patches...
    If there are guys out there that are braver than I, I can pm you his # in central NH. he has [2] '30 coupe cowls with [doors ?], pr. sportie quarters...
    about $100 a panel...

    Never a doubt. One of the trad guys told me roadsters didn't have b pillars. Mabey so, but what do you call them?

    B pillars...
    even though they are only angle steel,
    I call them B pillars as a location as much as what they are made from...
