Vehicle story

Hayes Coupe was a custom bodied club coupe designed by famed designer Ray Dietrich who worked for Chrysler at the time. Bodies were custom made to order by the Hayes Body Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They announced a limited run of up to 1000 cars, spread across 3 lines. Chrysler, DeSoto and Dodge. It is speculated that perhaps 300 were actually made and remaining bodies went to scrap for the war effort. My car has Hayes body #265. The color is called Regal Maroon.

It does have overdrive as did many of the Chryslers of the period and will do 75 easily to keep up with contemporary highway traffic. The paint is a very old restoration but is lovingly cared for and looks great, even up close. The interior has been recently redone in correct mohair upholstery. The rear seats will comfortably seat 2 regular sized adults and will fold up behind the rear cushion for added storage if needed. The car does have seat belts added. Trunk is large enough for a day away and a picnic if desired.

Wheels and tires

New Diamondback radials that look like original bias plies. Wheels recently coated in the proper Vermillion Red that was standard fare on all Hayes coupes. 7.00 X 16

Brakes

Brakes are upgraded factory Chrysler. One of many amazing things about Chrysler corp vehicles is so much is interchangeable. Originally 9" drums, upgraded to 11" drums from a 50's era Chrysler product. Still doesn't brake like a new vehicle but is substantially better than a factory 1939 system and it's all Chrysler.

Transmission

3 on the tree with electronic overdrive.
