I've made some progress on the cars and I thought I would start a project thread with both cars in it. I can't get as much done as some folks on my rides but I will post as much as possible with updates. My 2 projects are a 1950 Dodge Coronet and a 1948 Ford coupe. My main focus is getting the Dodge Coronet on the road. When I need a break I will switch over to the Ford. I still need to gather a lot of parts for the Ford build, but the hunt has always been half of the fun for me. This is what I started with. The motor and tranny were half taken apart in the car and some parts are missing from the motor. I have a complete 1951 DeSoto drivetrain that in good shape that I'm swapping into the car. First thing I started on was removing the hood, upper grill, radiator frame top, and disconnecting all the exhaust, any remaining wires and unbolt the motor and tranny from the mounts. Took a break from the car and took an adult scooter I bought at the thrift store for $25 and lowered the seat and handlebars so the kids can drive it. This sucker is fast. They have been having a blast with it. Woke up early today to beat the Alabama heat and got the motor and tranny pulled out. It was a lot of hot, dirty work but it's out of the car now. This is my first time doing this and I was super excited to get it finished. This was mounted to the side of the motor. What is it? I figured something for the brakes. This is my 1948 ford coupe I bought for $750 with the motor in it. The body is in great shape except for some surface rust and a few holes. The previous owner mounted it to a 78 thunderbird chasis. The more I thought about this frame swap, the more it bothered me. Was looking at craigslist for a state nearby and found this stuff for cheap. The plan is to use my 48 ford coupe body and build it on the 41 frame and use the 41 front end. I took a little break from the Dodge and started taking the ford apart today. This is how far I got.
