I'll stand with you on this, together against the onslaught......................
Yes, the cleaning product...here is a Video:
C-L-R and use a sponge or soft rag...DON’T use a scotch-brite...too aggressive!
Also use gloves and rinse good to neutralize...as C-L-R is quite acidic!
Actually learned something today. The thing I thought was a light is actually a defroster. There is a small heating element in it. The heater does not have defroster vents so this would work to defrost the drivers side of the windshield. It rotates around to face the windshield.Wow another rare option.
You are starting to like this ol Dodge aren`t you.
Only a fool would think other wise.
He's going to add it to his collection of rare and unusual collectables and memorabilia which includes the DeSoto ute which even here in Oz is rare
How long did it take you to come up with the Fayette county plate idea...........?
That is even more cool
Another example. Like I said, I would start using a sponge or a soft rag. He used a scotch- bride pad, but I would use a sponge, and only use a scotch- bride pad as a last resort, after getting used to the whole procedure.
Must have started when I was two years old.
Not sure what you are getting at?
I picked it up in Fayette County, it has spent most of it's life in Fayette County and the plates were on it since at least 1965 since they were on it when I picked it up. and the title is from there also.
In the middle of building a house right now or it would be going nowhere. Even my wife likes it and she is not an antique car kind of girl.
Finally got the video to upload. I am not a pro so take it for what it is. https://youtu.be/MEy1sRlzSMA
You certainly found a VERY GOOD one.
That car is a once in a lifetime opportunity - have you considered selling other stuff instead?
HORSEHOCKEY! That was in Fayette county?!
Ah, well. I probably don't have the budget to get it anyway, as much as I'd like to have it.
Roger......in Black Hawk county.
I WANT ONE !!!!!! Holy cow BATMAN ! thats awsome .
Awesome barn find! Great condition and all the parts, thats a lucky find.
33 Dodge........so I assumed you rustled up a 33 county plate to have a subtle vanity plate.
Maybe even some goggles unless you have rust in yer eyes...
I am amazed of the revitalization of old paint jobs...this should be given priority over other methods...it may drop the jaw...
Quite coincidental...I get why you asked that...they didn't have to pay extra for that back then...
Being a 1965 plate is that the year 1933 referenced in fact by 33 on the plate or is it just random #s? I suppose back then much like today old car bugs were looking for numbers that matched...
If anyone reading this has extra parts, I'd be interested. I'm building a 34 Dodge coupe myself.
I did not even see where you were going with that. Pure coincidence. The county numbers are assigned based on population of the county from the most populated to the 99th least. Fayette just happened to be number 33
I always thought that Iowa assigned the county numbers starting in one corner and worked their way across. I live in Marshall County, which is number 64. We are right in the middle.
Wow.....some guys have all the luck ! Nice find......
Born in Greene county......Jefferson, raised in Calhoun county.....Lake City.
At that time anyway (1965), the counties were numbered alphabetically A to W (Adair to Wright), the population thing may have been true in the 20's or before. Fayette is the 33rd in the list, there's a lot of B's and C's.
Very cool find!!!
Great looking car. Awesome find!!
