Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

Mart,


That's a very different floor configuration than that in North American '33 coupes as it lacks the depressed area for the foot well. Has the floor been modifies or replaced?

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

The photo below will at give you the location of the hole where the tube inserts into the sill behind the strainer. The sills and floor in the photo are original to that coupe (a '33).

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

There's no attachment in the usual sense as the drain tube just inserts into the hole for that purpose on the right side sill behind the upright quarter panel strainer (support).

Re: 1933/1934 dashes

Less known is the fact that early '34 dashes were actually carry-over '33s without a built-in instrument panel. A special panel equal in size to the surrounding raised area of a common '34 panel was...
