    There is no way I can NOT follow this build! Not sure about the V8: I'm disguising a 300 Ford as a Speed Six.

    Ha Ha been there! Right about know is when I start thinking what have I gotten myself into for about a second, then the excitement of having a project in the garage overtakes all other thoughts! Good luck I will be following along. Hobo Jim

    Little update...

    Got the doors off, with a little fight! I beat the piss out of the hinge pins and then the door opened on its own and lo and behold the hinges were actually bolted to the pillars. The Dodge Bros had their shit together! The bolts came out with no problem!

    Not only did Henry piss them off, he paid them off. They became quite wealthy in their own right.

    You never know what you'll find or get with an old specimen. I bought a 1914 dodge chassis for a TROG build. Also winched and cussed it onto my trailer. Then the seller says, "here, don't forget the title".

    Made in about the first week of June 1921. Those plates are available from Myers Early Dodge Parts. DB used VERY good steel for their bolts, they usually come out if some patience is used.
