It has no seat belts and I want to add them. Is there a preferred location? Are there any caveats I should be aware of?

1950 Custom radio model 804 and 808 Thu, 04 Mar 2021 22:42:20 +0000 Hi All,  I am sure that this has been discussed at length and I just need to find the thread but, here goes.  I have a 50 Desoto Custom that was blessed without a radio.  If I understand it correctly, a model 804 or 808 will fit. Is this a correct understanding?

6 to 12 volt conversion generator question Wed, 03 Mar 2021 15:02:37 +0000 I purchased my ‘55 already converted to 12 volt, however the battery is not staying charged. The prior owner installed a new 12 volt regulator, but it looks as though the original generator is still in place (tag on unit says 6 volt). My question then: could the generator have been converted to 12v, or will it need to be replaced with a 12 volt generator?

1955 Desoto firedome Tue, 02 Mar 2021 03:01:36 +0000 Here is a true survivor car that you don't see every day. This beautiful 1955 Desoto is all original from the engine all the way to the interior. It has a 291 V8 Firedome Hemi as all Chrysler cars did and are still able to keep up with the freeway. It has 65,000 original miles and runs smooth and even starts right up on a cold start. Had the booster and master cylinder rebuilt as there was a tear in the booster diaphragm but besides that fix, there isn't anything else it really needs. cruises nicely and gets lots of attention. I have extra parts such as some new brake shoes, trim, oil filter, and the original radio to replace the Audiovox. I'm asking 13k OBO. Thank you and have a great day. The car is located in southern California

. My number is 714-916-8776.
