I purchased (yet another) 1942 DeSoto--this one is a Deluxe 2-dr sedan.

It has fluid drive with the semi-automatic (4-speed) transmission. But it also has over drive (!!). Have any of you heard of this combination? Could you order this from the factory??

Have you networked with either Ray Reis or Ed Katzenberger? I don't think Ed is in the club anymore, but he, along with Ray, were our '42 Tech advisors.

Ray's contact info can be found under our "resources" tab.

John,

Are you able to post a picture of the overdrive mechanism? Something about this has my attention.
