    Hi, I have a 1931 DG8 Phaeton and in the process of restoring the same.I think that the cars are more or less similar except their engines (mine has 8cyl) and the instrument cluster ( 4 in the middle ).

    Though my car was incomplete and am in the process of restoring the same but am still hunting for some parts – unfortunately a lot of parts were not with the caradi keep buying the off ebay as and when possible.

    another set backis that i am in India and the parts and the expertise is awful hard to comeby.
    I do wish you the very best and shall be gerateful if you could post pic regularly.

    Thanks for your post! We will be adding new pictures as we complete more of the work, and welcome your comments. The slide show is pretty much up to date on the work we have completed so far, but if you have a request for an image of something else we will try to accomodate that if we can. Also, we would be very happy to provide help finding parts, and would like to see pictures of your project as well. Please send jpg or other commom format images to us at: englishautoweb@gmail.com. You can send a total of 10MB of attached images per post (gmail limit), but can send us as many posts as you like.

    If you have specific questions about parts you may also contact Doug Latham directly at: englishauto@localnet.com, but please do not send images to that address. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Chuck,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. I shall be sending you the pictures of my car and a list of some parts that I am looking for, but in the meantime if you go on eBay(1931 Dodge) you can come across some part like hubcaps or door handles etc on regular basis.

    Shall be making a list of what I require and mailing the same to you soon along with the pictures

    Once again I thank you

    Hi Chuck,

    Sorry it’s been nearly a year since I was in touch with you but I was out of the country and very occupied , in fact I did try to locat the website in between but ‘ it was under upgrade or construction.’
    I am now back in India and was lucky enough to again come across the website fully operational.
    I just went thorugh the picture of your project and and very happy to see the progress , including the costom latch etc – great job.

    Chuck I am now again workin on my car and was hoping to get as much help from you as possible.I do need the parts listed below to complete my car

    1). All four door latches.( if they could be coustom built)
    2). The windscreen stantion ( left and right- if possible to coustom built)
    3). Cowl lights ( or pictures thereof)
    4). Hood bars ( or the dimentions thereof).

    Please note that I am in India ( buy a lot parts on eBay.com)and there were possibly only three Dodge phaeton that every came here so would greatly appreciate all the help from fellow enthusiast to help restore my car.

    I shall try and load the pictures of my project if possible shortly.

    Looking forward to a positive feedback form your end

    Thanking you

    BTW- loved the Jaguar 140.

      Hello Harsh,

      Glad to hear from you again. I will forward your inquiry on to Doug Latham. Check out the custom latches we had built for the 32 Dodge. Doug can give you a price or more info on them.
