Change your front shock mounts for obvious reasons...it will make a world of difference. I plan on channeling mine to as my floor is completely gone. Keep us posted.
Post a picture of yours id like to see it!

My MoPar freak flag is flying!! Man did Chrysler know how to styelize their rides with great body reveals and swoopy lines. The front bumper with those sweet overriders is smooth. The wheel change up is perfect and Bleeds guidence on the body drop is super cool. Very cool the old flatty is running some twice straight pipes should make that ol girl humm. Always great to see machines from the worlds coolest shop get back on the road! ~sololobo~

Nice looking car. Very different to the 39 Coupe Ozzie version I have got. Keep up the good work as it will look awesome when completed.

Thanks for posting photos of it as a work in progress. Inspiring stuff.

Unfortunately mine is missing a fair bit of the trim and bumpers which you have got but I agree that dash is going to be a bit of a challenge.

Here she is as I found here on CL. Do you like the trailer queen tail light set up?



318 going in. PO put the motor back into your lap, the engine was about 1 to 1 1/2 feet into the firewall. We're using chassis engineering mounts and a cavalier rack. Right now it has a 902 trans but I have a a833 laying around that I might use. Here's Ede (nicegyede) stabbing the block.

You've done great work so far. It's terrific to see another old MOPAR come back to life, especially a rare one like this. My '39 Ply has been/is a work in progress.

You are doing a great job so far! Please keep the original dash - it's a great looking piece. It should be fairly easy to adapt any 30s-40s aera speedo to work in that dash and replace the face and glass.
