    Stock 25” 241. Currently splitting the exhaust, plaining the head. Maybe a couple carbs if I can find them.

    When I got the car it hadn’t been washed in 10 or so years. Tried scrubbing the hell out of it numerous times. Ended up essentially wet sanding it with scotchbrite and buffing it. Lost some paint. But looks so much better.

  6. Very close to finally being on the road here in Australia as it was last registered in Arizona in 1961.

    I've had only a couple Mopars over the years...

    Rescued this barn find 41 Ply X coupe that was built in the '70s. Note the frenched headlights, grill and emblem. I'm a Ford guy so I traded it off for 39 Ford pickup project:D ply1.jpg ply2.jpg

    Got this 40 Ply. X-sedan as a partial trade (and lots of cash) for my 37 ford pickup. It came without a built a buck and made the fiberglass Carson top. Sold it to a guy in central Pa

    It is running a 318 Poly with a pushbutton 727, and will hopefully turn out a nice mild tail dragger

    upload_2021-1-25_3-41-31.png 1946 Chrysler Deluxe Business Coupe

    Recently, when my wife and I were watching a streaming show about the world of chess, we saw plenty of cool area/time period correct old cars. One stood out as what I thought was a Plymouth coupe from the late 40s. Our experience with the Chrysler products, when we were little, was riding in our elementary school playground director’s old 46 Plymouth Coupe. They looked similar to us.

    It was his responsibility to get us to other playgrounds on a Saturday morning for our playground baseball and basketball games during the seasons. If we could not bicycle to the other playgrounds, he would take us all crammed into his two door coupe.

    To make matters worse, he was an avid cigar smoker and always had a stump sticking out of his mouth. The little office/shed where the equipment was kept smelled like a cigar factory and dead animals + ashes. We always held our breaths when we had to go in there to get the equipment for the day’s activities or games. It was awful.


    That Plymouth coupe held a 7 kid basketball team, a 10 count baseball team and a nice looking college age girl that was his assistant. She made the ride in the coupe nicer than it was with just the cigar smoke and the director.
