Re: ‘28-29 Phaeton

I have not really compared the overall interior space of the phaeton to other cars, but if it has 'extra' space, it is all in the back seat and not the front. The rear has plenty of room to spare but...

Re: Oil Pump Spring

Yep, ran into that on my dad’s car just a couple days ago. It has a ‘28 pan with the pan clean out plate so I figured it was a ‘28 thing. What year is the car you saw it on?

Re: what does "insurance" on shipping actually cover?

In short, Brent nailed it, it will really come down to how the item was packaged.
