    An exciting coupla weekends of receiving the stash of mostly-Dodge tins buying off a local friend, figuring out the vintage & make of some of it. Not sure where to start, takin a break from skinnin rust off.
    For now: after getting the rear quarters, plus dash & cowl to a '20s Dodge last weekend, thought there was a 2nd right-rear quarter for it in the rest of the stash to-be-had. Found out today, not quiiite, close though.
    Took 90+ year-old fender bolts off again, clearing the fender... will most likely put fender & step/foothold pad on the market.

    Most of my DB expertise is '27 and earlier but those don't look like Dodge either. For sure not '27 or earlier. I think I see nail holes along the top edge where the skin would join a coupe top or tack to a wood structure and if so, not Dodge.

  5. I don't, either.
     
  6. Could you show a pic of the dash you got?

    One of those quarters looks like '25-26 Chevrolet

    I found this while looking for model A parts. Similar, but I’m not sure what they are off of. Lot of wood behind panel. [​IMG]

    Ongoing education, taking hints from others. No heartbreak if its not Dodge/is Chevy, Whatever. Good to learn. 20190223_142545.jpeg

    I did a straight project trade with a bud who thought it Model T... these all came from same frame. A 3rd rear quarter (the one I thought was a spare pass-side quarter) was part of a pile of parts I purch"ed from same bud.
    In that seperate pile was the aforementioned Mystery Cowl. 20190223_153300.jpeg 20190223_142539.jpeg received_606549636448362.jpeg 20190303_115021.jpeg received_2325337204147478.jpeg
