I can't say enough about how great the first half of the summer has been for us here at Roberts Motor Parts: From the great cars shows to the amazing vehicles we have seen and for the visits that we have enjoyed with our customers.
One of our long time customers Larry Jenkins of West Virginia had his truck on the cover of Vintage Truck Magazine. Larry's 1940 Plymouth truck jumps off the cover in it's brilliant orange and black paint scheme. You can see some of our contribution to that effort when you check out the fantastic hub caps that adorn this wonderful reproduction. P163A are officially licensed reproduction hub caps that fit on 1939 and 1940 Plymouth Cars and Trucks with 10 inch caps. Larry is an amazing guy and has been a real joy to do business with over the years. We are very happy for him and hope that he enjoys his truck for years to come.

Earlier this summer I had a chance to enjoy a day in Boston with old friend and customer Pat Gaffney and his family. Pat, as some of you may recall restored a 1945 Blackout Dodge truck that once belonged to his grandfather in California. Pat devotes a trip every summer to a historic destination and he felt it was time to go history crazy with his boys in scenic Boston. After visits to the USS Constitution and Bunker Hill Memorial our families enjoyed pizza and arancinis in Boston's North End.

While visiting colleges with my oldest child in beautiful Burlington, Vermont I caught up with Ethan Platt. My visit inspired him to bring along his 1946 Dodge Truck for me to see. Ethan is a pretty busy fellow with small children and booming business of his own, #American Meadows, so I was especially grateful that he took the time to see me and catch up. I think he will be taking his truck to soccer games for a long time.
I have recently been re-supplied with a number of very popular pieces including but not limited to:
Vent Window Rubbers for most 39-52 Chrysler, Dodge, Desoto, Plymouth and Dodge truck vehicles.
Door Latches for 1940-1947 Dodge Trucks
Head Light Rings for 1941-1953 Dodge Trucks
By the end of the Summer I hope to be able to offer:
P165A ,1946-1950 Dodge Car hub cap
T-166 Headlight Assembly.
Final sample P165A Hub Cap
If you are on the waiting list for either item you will be contacted as soon as they are back.
Wherever the rest of your summer may take you I hope that it includes a few special moments in your car or truck.
Until next time,
