I'm a middle aged guy who has chosen to relive part of my youth. As you may have guessed, a car is part of this story; not just any car but a 1931 Dodge Brothers 3 window rumble seat coupe DH6. A little about myself. The first time I remember when the car bug bit me was when dad purchased a new 60's Mustang light green automatic. A few years later he was considering trading it for a Mustang Cobra II which I thought was the coolest car around LOL. A few years after that I landed a job at a local garage in the greater Boston area sweeping floors, fixin tires, etc.. The head mechanic had a 57 Chevy 327 4speed. Then, I attended vocational high school where I nearly bought my teachers Model A project until I opened my big mouth and told him I was going to hot rod it. Now I know better. All that ended in the early 90's when I attended college. Now here I am about 20 yrs later been saving as much as I can to start a new project. A little about the car. The engine is a 1955 Chrysler 331 hemi industrial short block with 60 over 9 to 1 pistons. Cam; not sure what make was told its 514 lift at the spring but I dont understand what that means exactly. The heads are 51 331 heads with new 2'' valves. The tranny is a 700r4 with a 2200-2400 stall converter. The rear end is an s-10 with 4:11's. so I found a local shop to install the mustang II front chassis n box the frame and BOY AM I PAYING FOR IT! My intent is to keep the body stock looking except for the smoothie rims with baby moons. I will be unable to paint it soon as the shop has already taken half my budget. But when I do I will either paint it all black or grey with black fenders and stripping. (only 2 choices) Some input from you guys would be appreciated. TY. Here are some photos of the project. I'm not sure when I can post next time money is getting tight. TY all for sharing your fine machines (mo-sheens) with another car guy.
