John’s ‘53 Caribbean
Not too shy to talk

AKA “rescue”
Progress on Caribbean. First washed it all down as best I could in an unsheathed in January in northwest Indiana. I decided to try and get all the stuff back on during cold weather -reduce the parts clutter for mechanical work. So I returned the rear bumper and continental kit after polishing and prepping brackets. Took cursory look around, mixed bag. Checked oil -looked like honey, pulled a plug - looked great but not new, grabbed fan-engine not looked. All good. Bondo in right rear quarter looks like some rust, the trunk floor was replaced - clean and seam seal needed, not great and fearful of what laid ahead. Removed interior and need to get to upholstery shop. Only doing seats as all panels cleaned right up. Removed carpets and the floor is fine no issues. Most areas still have factory paint. The right rear quarter trim panel was off got chance to look in there. Sadly no window cylinder and even worse no regulator or spring.

Any help locating right rear window regulator and spring for 1953 Caribbean with hydraulics would be appreciated

Next step - remove treadle vac unit for rebuild
