    Hello all...I have been building a 50 Wayfarer with a Ford 351m 400 with a C-6...
    Yeah, I know but only engine I had at the time...
    I used a Champion 4 core radiator for a 67 Mustang and it's not cooling...
    I need a bigger radiator that will fit without completely redesigning the core support...
    Any ideas?
    I have the build log here... http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/1950-dodge-wayfarer-sedan-build.492556/
     
  6. do you have the correct thermostat? that engine family requires a unique thermostat that closes off the internal coolant bypass in addition to "opening" to let the coolant flow to the radiator.

    Kind of stock, I boxed the upper control arms and reinforced the lowers, added rack & pinion steering, made disc brake adapters and added baggs

  8. OLD MOPARS are Alive and Well! Just not as many of us as the Four Letter 'F' word. Haha
    I have a '29 Chrysler 5w Coupe with a Rumble seat and 354 Hemi, a '35 Plymouth 5w Coupe with a 345 Desoto Hemi (thinking of how I can make it a really sweet 3w coupe by moving the roof forward, and using another set of doors I have to give the back of the door a radius like the front has). Also, I just bought a '37 Dodge 1/2 ton Pickup and I'm planning on running a late 40's-early 50's Dodge flathead in it. It was a MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer) movie truck. I think they used it as a "back lot" truck to run costumes around in. I'm going to keep the MGM lettering on the doors and maintain the patina.

    Hello GroundAssault,

    Is that movie truck a white colored 1.5 Ton?

    Cool cars! I am building a 1936 Dodge 1/2 truck running a 331 or 354 Hemi. I have a stack of Hemi's and need to decide which direction to take....

    I am restoring a 1937 ME-32, out of the 20 or so flatheads I have here, none of them are a 251 -or- 265 as I desire. Tough engines to find! So I will drop in a 228" and wait until something bigger comes along my way...

    My 1938 Plymouth PT57 will be restored all original.

    -Jack

    Wow! Very cool and rare car! I can only imagine how much fun it has to be to drive.... Are you going to keep the drive line original?

    I need hubcaps for one of those cars. Do you have any idea where a set can be found?

    Rare also because most have sidemount spares. I stuck the rear spare in the rumble seat floor and moved the license plate to the center so it didn't get bent by people walking by the left tail light. I got it running nicely. Didn't like the original carb, so I made an adapter to fit a '48 buick super 2bbl with auto choke. Starts instantly and purrs like my cat after a vigorous rubdown. I had a 331 hemi ready to transplant if the straight 8 was stuck, but that ain't happening now. Hubcaps seem to be scarce. Could use a couple better ones myself. Ebay is the swap meet of today, unfortunately.

    Thank you John... eBay is truly hit or miss for alot of stuff I need. Unfortunately, if I find it, I pay too much. If I want to sell something, I end up giving it away.... Oh well, life in our hobby! LOL

    It's good to know that you were able to get the Buick carb to work so well.
