Thanks Gents for your suggestions. We have a few options now to consider.

Thanks Howard. Your wealth of knowledge never ceases to amaze me. We may have to rig up something as I don't see any studs in the collection of old hardware from disassembly. The next question is how to attach studs to the back of the cast bright work?

I found another photo on the internet from a restoration blog about 10 years ago. There is no protrusion in the back or evidence of speednuts. The holes on the corners and in the center appear to be flush with the metal dash with some sort of tacking. Hmmm.....

1937 120 Center Dash Panel

Hi Everyone,

I am hoping some of the 1937 120 fans out there can help with this. How does the bright work surrounding the center gauge cluster attach to the wood grain panel?

The five little "nubs" on the back of the bright trim are not threaded for a screw and are very shallow. I am not sure if I disassembled this or someone else but how it came apart is lost to time. Photos attached. Appreciate your help.

Bob's Speedometer restored the clock from my '37 One Twenty. Great to work with.

Does anybody know if Caribbeans had a hood quilt from the factory?


Hi Mike,

Nice Caribbean you have there. Yes, I believe these were installed at the factory. My 1953 Caribbean has remnants of the old yellow fiberglass insulation under the hood. My car is an unrestored, unmolested survivor. Same color as yours. Enjoy the journey !

Flackmaster,

Do you happen to still have frame to crankcase splasher assembly for a 1937 One Twenty sedan? If so, I could use the passenger side (316021). I could also use two rear ash trays (housing and inserts) for the same car.

Thanks

Hey Tom,

I am just catching up to the re-emergence of "old Bessie". She sure looks great ! Glad to see her and you out and about again. Let me know if you're going to attend something in the western 'burbs in the near future. Maybe we can meet up and catch up.

Don,

Sandy was still with us back in June when I spoke to him. I called the 520 number and his wife (Rose?) picked up. Mike was not available so she put Sandy on the phone. I ordered a trunk hinge for my '37 120 and it arrived within a couple of weeks.

I have met both Sandy and Mike at swap meets. They are among the nicest people in the hobby.
