    You guys were right. So quiet now and no fumes! I got the tail pipe bling addressed too at the exhaust shop. I think My car drives as good or better than it ever has tonite. Quiet. Soft ride like a caddy. Good smooth power. Great Brakes. Radials. Full tune up. Valve grind and set. Idles like warm butter. It really feels like a new car. Very, very happy over here.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    March 15: My son (he's 8) and I got started on the rear brakes tonight. I wanted to go at a pace that he could do and feel good about. He wants to help me, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I loosened the lug nuts for him (opposite thread on driver's side!), and he finished with a ratchet. Then he jacked up the car as far as he could, and I finished. Blocks underneath the frame and center of the leaf springs where they bolt to the axle. Then we took out the right tools and removed the cotter pins from the castle nut. That's as far as we got, but I feel good about it. So happy I have a son who is as enthused as I am about this stuff. He choses the Meadowbrook over my 2017 Challenger!

    Every time you post about your car, I get even more jealous. But don't stop.

    Sun D1 Tach

    I had a working E2 Sun Tach and transmitter in my 2-1/2 tonner for years and took it out as the trucks life and need is over. I am in the process of restoring this 6 volt, 6 cylinder Sun Tach.... It was in the truck when I bought it around 1974. The light always worked too.

    Wow. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. That means a lot to me. I am very lucky to own it. I am honored to be its caretaker. To keep it looking great and share it with anyone who’s interested. This world needs more great old Mopars on the roads.

    It's great to see a kid who is interested in an old car and not playing games on the phone all day! Good going on teaching him something he can use in the future... the ability and want to work on something mechanical. That will help him and you in the future too!

    A puller and a big sledge? Lol. Oh and ear plugs. Safety glasses. Maybe a riot helmet. Good to see your son helping. Those are great times. My sons were the same. One hung on and still helps out a bit. The other met girls, cars, and beer. Lol.

    Where are you located? I’m fixing to get two 48 Dodge sedans for parts cars that may have suitable bumpers you could use.

    The only relevance the recent above comments have to the topic is that you blokes are anticipating that this will be the domestic situation of the OP when he commence his engine swap...:)

    Too far gone?

    I have no interest in what it's worth to anyone else but me and my son. Not looking to build and sell, I'm looking to enjoy the build and enjoy the drive. As for million dollar or even 6 figure muscle cars, in my opinion, that's gratuitous, stupid and meant for the likes of any ass clown with more money than they know what to do with. I see it almost daily with aviation where some nimrod who wants to impress the masses can take a mid 60's airplane and dump hundreds of thousands into it and all it proves is that they can sign a check. If we can't have fun with it then I would haul it to the nearest scrap yard and take my 50 bucks and get lit. If buying, building and selling is someones thing then I wish them all best of luck and much success. That's not my goal by any means. I plan to make memories with my son that will be carried on with his son and his son and his son... This is my opinion.

    You got too much raw power now with the dual carbs. You’ll need to de-tune it... JK

    Well, to me it just goes to show that custom is as custom does. Buying a bunch of chrome geegaws from the Harley store does not make a custom. Nor does bolting a flattie into a rotbox make a vintage Mopar...

    with the addition of other pictures....I would say even if doing the work yourself you will have a major amount of time in just repairing the rust issues alone......I am not one that usually gets scared of rust but I do believe I would be sourcing another car and take the best of both to make one

    1955 C1B Build Thread

    Got the bell housing back today. New collar machined to center the tranny and new holes tapped. My guy milled a step into the bore so the ring only goes in from the back. Its a tight fit, but that was the extra safety that it couldnt fall forward or be pushed through while installing the tranny for example. Will see how it fits in the truck this weekend.

    I did the front brakes 2 years ago Keith. I just haven't gotten around to the rear ones yet. They work good yet, but the master cylinder is getting spongy. I have a new replacement ready for install. Just need to get off my lazy butt and start on this stuff. . I'm not going to do a disc brake conversion at this time. This old Dodge has better brakes than most of the cars I have owned from the 60s; there's been 25+ of those in my life...

    The sun was out all day today. I took the opportunity to pull the car out of the garage into the light. First wash of the year. I also installed new seat belts today. 2 point lap belts. Nice dark green colour to match too. I am quite happy with the product from seatbeltsplus.com Of course we had to cruise my neighbourhood to test the seat belts. All my new neighbours seemed quite happy to see my old car out. Lots of melting today. The car sits about 2" lower overall now with the proper stock sized tires installed. I think I want to try and lower the rear end a little to have it either sit flat or a little lower than the front. Mine is about 1.5" taller at the rear compared to the front. I am thinking I will order a 2" block kit. In all the original '53 ads I have seen, the rear ends appear a little lower than the front.

    I have 15×5 wheel vintiques rally wheels. 2.5" backspace. The hubcap is fastened to an OEM rally wheel cap cut down and modified to hold it. I don't advise going that route for hubcap mounting but no issues with clearance or fitment and clears disc brakes. Rim also fits on ford 8.8 axle with discs and clears calipers. I ordered a set of U.S. wheel series 68 smoothies but they haven't arrived yet.

    I was put on this planet in 1952 to work most of my life on automobiles.... mostly old MoPars from 1930 on up the past 20 years full time. I still have my first car I learned to drive...a 1951 Cranbrook that still has the 8 track Panasonic deck I installed in it in 1968 complete with the "God Damn the Pusherman" tape too!. All my cars and trucks are MoPars from the 1940's to early 1950's and are all stock no modified. Oh...and I have at least twelve of them too! Rob
