I did a quick search and didn't find anything. Was a backup light optional for a '38 Twelve?

Re: Mechanic or Shop Recommendation

Randy,

You have gotten a lot of good suggestions from the group, just be methodical going thru them. It is probably something small.

Good luck.

Re: Mechanic or Shop Recommendation

Randy, Where are you in SC? I used to live in Greenville and I am out of Atlanta now. Another approach may be to create a separate ignition circuit and bypass the starter. You could use a 6V lantern battery or a 6V charger. That would eliminate the starter/grounding part of the circuit. Did you take...

Re: '38 Senior rear seat removal

And the answer is, there are 4 x 7/16" bolts that are at the top inside of the trunk, behind the mat. They hold things in.

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

Ok, parts book lists a Antiqua Tan and/or a Gypsy Brown wheel for 1603,4,5,7 and 8.

My guess is Gypsy brown

Re: '38 Senior wheel color

Don,

Thanks for the input. That is the shift knob, not the horn button. I will post a picture of it when I get home.

What do you think about the color?
