  • Kwiz-53 coupe, Loma Gray pieces

    How many individual pieces in the interior of a '53 Coupe with Automatic Drive receive Loma Gray paint?

    A. 14
    B. Who cares?
    C. 24
    D. All of them
    E. 34
    F. Why?
    Because I looked forward to having that behind me, and now I do.

    I'm gonna guess 24, simply because I know it's more than 14 and I don't have any idea how many different pieces of the dash there are...

        Only three pieces in the dash proper: dash, glovebox, ashtray.

            I am going with "E". There are a lot, all of the windshield and rear window surround mouldings and joiners, the right fender vent door, 1/4 window frames, all of the dash and it's parts, the rear view mirror to name only a few.

                Did that not vary between late and early '53? I thought they color co-ordinated a few more of the painted interior components later in the year.

                    I don't know when the interiors began to be co-ordinated to the exterior colors; probably very few '53's, if any.

                    I counted 34 individual pieces in mine, including the package shelf and door trim. There are six small strips that are inserted to divide the headliner and rear quarter trim around the rear quarter windows. Six pieces in the steering column: jacket, bracket, shift collar, shift indicator cover, shift lever and turn signal lever; four rear garnish pieces, quarter window frames, two front garnish moldings, rearview bracket and mirror, right vent door, left vent screen, dash, glovebox, ashtray, sun visor plates and two other pieces that elude me.

                    Darnit! I forgot to paint the seat frame.[V] How many pieces in that?

                        About as many pieces as a '53 2 door sedan w/ auto drive +/-!
                        (E) is a good guess......
