Got this old plymouth this far, thought I'd share some pics.
hard to beat it
Pretty cool, those are some serious calf burners though.
You work fast!
What's the wheelbase, Mike?
I likely . ooolsville
It has a .030 over 427, square port steel heads, hyd roller, right now it has an 850 holley DP on it but I also have a TR with 2 600's. Explorer rear end, 3.55 gear, trans is a 350 turbo with Coan internals. Exhaust is temporary, I'm going to run it underneath this winter. We are having a Cruise In the 31 so I figured I'd throw 2 bucket seats in and drive it there. I'll attempt to do the interior this winter. The vin plate came this morning and the sheriff inspection is tomorrow. I shortened the fiberglass grille shell 4 inches and made the insert out of 2 pieces of screen I found, since I had to use 2 pieces I spot welded it up the middle and stuck it in my break to v the center. I cut a piece of 7/16 stainless tubing length ways and welded a couple studs on the back side to hide were I welded it. I was aiming for something in the 60's, dents, dings and all.
Very nice "beater".....
Wow, you've been busy! Looking good!
This is one of the seats I got for it and the color the interior is going to be.
I'm a "dye in the wool" Ford guy, but these early Mopars (pre'37) are really starting to grow on me.
That's a great looking Hot Rod !!!
Pretty nice lookin beater. Looks like it could beat a lot of stuff on the street and strip.
