General Discussion / Re: 28 Dash Badge Decoding
« Last post by Bill Davis on Today at 12:05:25 AM »
Looking at Tod Fitch's website,, the dash badge "FedCo" number RP751E translates to a serial number of 417518.
The group of Model Q's built in Detroit starting with "4" have a serial number range of from 400001 to 436773.  There is another
group of Model Q's (earlier ???) built in Detroit with a serial number range of 379501 - 399999.

General Discussion / 28 Dash Badge Decoding
« Last post by Heimsoth on Yesterday at 07:35:53 PM »
Hello All,
Thanks for welcoming me into your group.  My dad has a 1928 4dr sedan that he bought in the early 70's.  It has been stored in a garage almost all of those years and now he needs help decoding the dash badge and body tag.  I would like to start the process of researching any documentation available before we do anything to the car.  From what I have seen in all the other posts and responses you guys are very helpful and we are at your mercy.  The dash badge is RP751E  and the body tag on the driver's side floorboard is 88-4158. 
p.s.  If the attached pictures do not appear I apologize.
Again, thanks in advance for all your help

Prep for Paint - Door Repairs.

Lots of things going on this spring but did manage to fit in some car progress.
Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Thanks so much, little did I know that when I wrote that tribute to my wife, Patty, as original co -pilot of the "Wayback Machine, she would be in the Hospital on her death bed due to COPD and congestive heart failure.  This issue is so meaningful to me

Thanks for all the kind words

Bulletin 349 has now been downloaded in the POC store.  Be sure to read the great article by Bob Drown
about his wife, Patty, and his 1940 Plymouth.  Another great issue by Lanny.

General Discussion / Re: Bias Look Radial tires
« Last post by RC Drown on May 19, 2018, 05:55:02 AM »
I use Cooper 15" radials on my 1940 Plymouth and have for many, many years.  The reason being that the car handles better (to me) and I was able to put 4 15" radials on the car at a far cheaper price than 600X16" bias, but my car is not a show car, it is a driver, I average 2500  miles a year on the car and I drive her year around if the roads are dry

Just my thoughts...…………..

Technical Discussion / Re: Carb stumbles 33 Plymouth

At 50 miles per hour the car may be trying to tell you to slow down.  ;)

All kidding aside there are usually identifiers of the carb model stamped on the fin at top of carb bowl inlet or on the back of the bowl .
For instance my carb only has a stamp on the back of the bowl of my 34 Plymouth PE carb 0-214 which is the OEM carb but there apparently were any number of carbs that are OEM replacements for the carter BB1 series due to poor running conditions and attempts to improve them.

Such is my limited knowledge and perhaps Tod Fitch the 33 plymouth guru will chime in.
