I found the other day and looking at the pictures I noticed that a dimmer switch was mounted on the dash. It could have been a starter switch. When I was selling Dodges we had to move the dimmer switch from the column to the floor, the customer did not have a left arm.

Ron,, I am going to share something with you about me an the 39 I bought a few years ago .. the same one I have right now,,it turns out not as exciting as the first one I bought when I was a young man.. Sure it is much nicer and a trophy getter ,,but it is me that changed .. Back in the early 60ies most all cars had smaller windshields and so I did not notice not being able to see over the hood at the road ahead of me , so when I drive this 39 around I am all the time looking thru any window I can to see whats beside me ,,back of me and straight ahead of me .. I feel like I am driving on defence down the highways ... And it takes more time to go through the gears where with the automatics of today it is a much smoother take off and slow down......I wonder if you were to get a 35 Plymouth if you would have the same feelings I do.. with the thinking why did I buy this car that is not really built for the highways of today with hardly any conviences even your Chevy truck has ,,and find it being in garage about all the time


Directions are just another mans Opinion

I know you are right but an obsession is an obsession. Yes, the truck has some of the same limitations but it has a lot of modern mechanicals. I have even searched for model cars of the era but have yet to find one. But a person of my age has to have a reason to get up in the morning.
It is the one that got away that I remember as perfect for me. Just like the little red hair girl in2nd grade but I saw her the other day and is gray-haired and 250 lbs. ohwell
