    Hi all,

    I am hunting for a vintage Redmond electric motor. It operates the cable pull system for the roof of my 1953 Plymouth Cranbrook convertible.

    There are not many details on it but it shows as:

    REDMOND 1-59 ? 6V 6x5 There are no other numbers on it and no Chrysler part numbers either. It is approximately 6” in length.

    I believe that these motors may have been used in other marques as well. Has anyone ever come across one of these or better still, know of someone who has one?

    Do you have the old one or is it missing? There are electric motor rebuilders if it needs more than a set of brushes, cleaning and lube.

    Thanks for that. Yep, I am going to have it rewound over here in Australia but I am a little worried that components like bearings, brushes and commutator may need replacing. I would love to locate another one just to have as a backup, even if the windings are burnt.
