52 200 won't turn over

Hey everyone! I'm having a bit of a problem. My 200 was running, but the battery was not charging. I could start it with a jump and it would run fine, until I turned it off. During this period I adjusted the timing and had 21" of vacuum. I started digging around and I found the regulator was corrode...

Wiring Harness for '52 200

Hey All! I have found several broken wires on my 200 and figured the harness would be a worthwhile replacement/upgrade. I called the wonderful guys over at Kanter and they gave me a quote of $1300.00 USD! Can anyone steer me in the direction of a more economical option? This will never be a show/com...

Re: 1952 200 Deluxe Restoration

Update: My mechanic drove it and thought it was the master cylinder. He order one, that never showed up, then ordered another one and when he went to install it found a bit of a surprise. It has power brakes! Who knew?! The master cylinder was only getting 6" of vacuum and this was causing the diffi...

How interchangeable is a 52 200 and 55 Patrician?

Color/Trim questions

I looked through the reference on the main page for trim/paint combos. A couple factors, First) I don't know if I'm blind, but I didn't see any interior info for a 2562, and Second) the body paint is already the wrong color. Knowing that should I try and "go original" or just have fun? The carpet th...
