The Jalopy Journal
My '55 Dodge,I drive it any time I can,no matter the weather..
i'll be there (hopefully) with the one on the right:
What is the latest one can show up on friday night for the pre-party?
One of the 'yards I frequent has a '55 Plymouth with the 230 flathead six and some type of overdrive manual transmission. I'm thinking of trying...
Weird,there's a twin to that car sitting in my town,been there forever. I actually had to check your location to make sure it wasn't the same car
I just swapped a Chrysler 8.25 rear into my '55,fairly easy swap. We had to rmove the old spring perches and weld new ones atop the axle tube...
I am looking at possibly picking up a 49 or 50 Desoto club coupe parts car,does anyone know what body parts might interchange with a '51 Dodge...
I have a pair of '55 Oldsmobile 88 tail lights that were saved from a parts car,and I'm putting them on my pickup. Does anyone happen to know what...
Thanks for the pics,my sister's Oldsmobile is in the show this year.
Last car looks like a '57 Merc
Looks like a nice solid start!
My '51 coupe was also rescued from the scrapyard a few years ago.
Just found this '55 Savoy today at a yard,while poking around for parts for my o/t Dodge truck. I grabbed a bunch of stuff off of it,some to use...
The part that annoys me when browsing CL or the 'bay,is how every old car/truck "would make an excellent rat rod". Does such a thing even exist?
A few I took over the weekend...
The Merc is sitting right off of a main road,and gets pelted with snow and salt every time a plow...
Those are the standard ones,the custom regal had headlight rings that had almost a formed visor at the top edge,almost like a '55 buick
Awesome,I don't think I've ever seen a custom regal in person,just in stock file photos. I'd love to at least find a pair of those headlight rings.
What the hell!?
Around here that would still be a $1500 car
I'd love to put a 8-3/4 in it,but I just don't know where I'd find one around,not much of a selection of older Mopars in the 'yards around here.
Do the A100 vans have the 4-1/2" bolt pattern? I don't think I've even seen an A100 for parts around here in many years
What about one of of,say a late 80' dakota or jeep cherokee?
I have a 8 1/4 rear out of a cordoba I chopped up a few years ago,I should measure...
I have a '55 Dodge C3B 1/2 ton,that has the stock 230 flathead 6 and the 3-speed. I enjoy driving it but the 60mph top speed kind of blows. I was...
i'm just lowering the rear about 2 inches to level it out,not gonna be slammed or anything crazy.
I had a set of '56 Caddy hub caps lying around and wanted to see how they would look on the truck (55 Dodge). I had a set of wheels that would...
You got it,that place is like my disneyland.
A couple more of my shots I'd like to add
