    Hey all, I got linked over here from the Dodge Coronet Registry and liked what I found so I decided to join up. I have a '49 Dodge Meadowbrook that I am breathing life back into to make a daily driver for my wife, it's her wedding present from me. The car is in pretty good condition, but there will be a few things I want to change, I have already dropped the rear 2" and am gathering parts and info to drop the front 3". Still running the flat head 6, and I intend to keep it that way, but I may try to squeeze some more power out of there eventually. I'm getting the exhaust done in the next week or so, gonna run 2" pipe with a Flowmaster series 50 Delta Flow muffler... This is a slow process, since I don't have a garage, it took me all winter to get the car drivable even though the motor runs great.

    Welcome, '49 Meadowbrook! Looks like a nice project. If you're going to hop it up later, you should get the Langdon Stovebolt dual exhaust manifolds before you hang your exhaust system so you don't have to do it again later. I used it with an offy 2 carb intake and it really woke up my '49 Dodge Wayfarer.

    Just my 2 cents...

    You'll have to make a trip to New Zealand, if you want to see my '49 Dodge! I traded it for a chopped and sectioned '50 Ford from another HAMBer, who sold it to a guy from New Zealand. My current project is a '27 T modified with a 59AB flathead.

    Thanks for the welcome, all! I guess I need to clarify my first post when I stated I don't have a garage when in the pic behind the car there is clearly one there. I have the car stashed at a buddies house, and it was supposed to be a surprise for my wife, she didn't know I bought it, I actually got it in the beginning of October and my sister drank a bit too much and spoiled the secret near the end of November. Oh well, right? She still hasn't seen it personally, but has looked at a few pics. She is pretty excited about driving it around everyday, and we already sold her car to pay for the restoration. I sold one of my motorcycles just to buy the car, and I was kind of surprised she never noticed the bike missing out of the driveway...
