Technically I guess I have started this project so I figured I would go ahead and start a thread on it. This one is a 40 Desoto coupe that a found a few years ago. Mostly complete with a little tornado damage on the roof. Wish I would have found it before that happened. A tree blew over and made a glancing blow on the side of the car and wrinkled the roof and wiped out a hard to find piece of quarter trim. The motor is still in it and it appears it was running until the clutch went out. Someone pulled the transmission and it’s in the trunk along with the new clutch parts. I guess it didn’t get done quick enough and the motor locked up from sitting. Shortly after buying the car I spotted a 56 Desoto 330 hemi at a swap meet. Couldn’t pass that up so I bought it and have been collecting some missing parts for it. Just recently found a flywheel for it. I didn’t realize how hard those are to find. Up until putting the flywheel on I couldn’t get the motor to spin. So this weekend I put that on and started trying to get some movement. Still wouldn’t budge. It’s had MMO soaking in the cylinders for quite awhile. So my backup plan went into action. I did a thanksgiving hemi roast. As soon as the block started warming up it broke loose and spins fairly easily. MMO does amazing things on warm motors. Next step is to find a starter and a carb and get this thing to run. Stay tuned!
