    The 3rd Annual P-15 Picnic was a great success. We even welcomed our first overseas visitor... a P15 owner from Holland who is planning to bring his car next year. It was a good day out...

    Appomatox - Chrysler 300's

    We were on a trip to Virginia over the weekend and pulled into Appomatox Court House and were pleasantly surprised to see the Chrysler 300 group had included it on their itinerary. There were 300's all the way from 1955 through the late 60's represented. If only I could afford it I would love to take possession of one of those beautiful cars. I like all of them but am particularly fond of the 1956 and 1960. (I owned a 1960 Windsor 15 year ago.) They had a gorgeous day to take their old cars out for a drive in the Virginia countryside. My 1950 Wayfarer is sold and will be making it's way to France soon. I have mixed feelings about selling but am happy it is going to a couple who really wanted a Wayfarer like mine.

    What would you do??

    Well, I guess I'm a member of the Big Dodge Truck Club now! After over three years of thinking about this truck, I finally made an agreement with the owner. After taking a drive by it with Merle last week, it kind of pushed me over the edge to buy it. I kept going back and forth in my head on what to do, but now that its done, I feel great! We agreed on a price, and I'm hoping to pick it up next weekend. About an hour after I got off the phone with the owner, he pulled it out of the barn and aired up the tires for me. All the wheels roll and tires hold air (I was worried about that). He seemed excited that I was getting it and that I'd get it back on the road. He sent me the picture below. The bad news, it that it's definitely going to have to sit awhile before I can do anything with it. I'm fairly sure my wife would kill me if I start working on it right away lol. She was ok with buying it as long as I park it for a while. I still have my dad's 48 Desoto project to keep me busy in the meantime, but man is it going to tough not to tinker with it! On an side note, my wife and I were on our way to dinner in the 52 when the owner of the cab over returned my call, so I guess you can say I bought the 53 while sitting in the 52. (It was a nice Fall day to take the truck out. We put about 75 miles on it round trip)

    1940 Dodge D14 Build Thread

    My plan was to rebuild the 218 into a 230, with all the nice pep parts ... headers, dual carb intake, hotter cam, etc. So I priced all this, plus the machine work my motor would need during this rebuild, and then this fell into my lap ... a fellow selling a rebuilt 218 from a 53 truck. 40 over on the pistons, hotter cam, langdons headers, offenhauser intake, new water and oil pumps, converted distributor from slant 6 with pertronix ignitor, mopar internally regulated alternator ... nice motor, for the price of buying the parts to rebuild mine. I'll use this with my stock 3-speed.

    Dolly got to enter in her first ever car show. There was only one other Dodge pickup at the show (a old Powerwagon, you can see it in the background of one of the photos. She didn't get to be judged on Saturday because on the way home on Friday night the she quit charging. I found the problem on Sat ( a frayed wire), but we missed the judging part. But she got to enter up, drag main street, and hang out with the cool cars. Lots of folks commented on her-most say don't paint her.... the sunset picture was last week. I like that picture.

    Got myself a 1947 Dodge D24

    I found this car on Craigslist a couple weeks ago. For the price he was asking I couldn't let it go. The PO put quite a bit of money in this car: new tires, gas tank, brakes, interior, starter, generator,exhaust , radiator, I also got an extra engine with it. An extra carb and three extra generators. I replaced the head gasket because it was leaking coolant . The people who put interior in glues the carpet and foam pad to the rusty floor pan. I'm working right now on cleaning that mess up. Rebuilt carb because PO painted it and the paint got into the carb and gummed everything up. Seems to idle and drive pretty good. Need to fix auto choke yet. Paint isn't perfect and it has a few small spots of rust and will need new window rubber all the way around having fun with it!

    Woodgrain Thoughts

    Here is an example of the wood graining that I did while using the kit from Grain-it company. They have a metalplate willall of the various wood grains and then the appropriate base colors and then the top coats. The graining is applied with a soft rubber roller and is a simple process to do. This is an example of curly maple that was used on the 39 Desoto. Rich Hartung desoto1939@aol.comu

    Yes. You can trust the factory shop manual and Motors Automobile Repair Manuals. If they tell you something is that simple,it is that simple. My only additional suggestions would be to tape a piece of cardboard cut to the size of the radiator core to the radiator to keep from accidentally damaging any fins accidentally, as well as to save the skin on your hands. Old radiator cores are nasty things,and they create nasty,infected cuts that make your hands sore. The next thing to do is remove the fan before you loosen the fan belt or do anything else. Putting the fan back on should be the next to last thing you do,and removing the cardboard should be the last thing you do. Don't ask me how I know this.

    What would you do??

    Well, it made it home! I took our yard truck and trailer to pick it up. Loading it was a breeze, I used the knuckle boom on the truck to pull it up on the trailer. The truck definitely has its fair share of rust, but it's definitely not too far gone. I decoded the serial number and it's a 1952. It's a B3JM161. I'll post more pictures this weekend of it. I'm just happy I finally have it!

    I guess it has been almost a year since I bought the puppy. Being a 61 it is not a GT that was the moniker given to the same body I have in 1962..in 61 the two door hardtop was simply called a sport coupe. Pretty basic little car for a 770 top of line trim, it does however sport power steering of all things. Cast iron 170 /6. So far all I have done is clean the points, worked the carb a bit, fixed a door latch, repaired the steering wheel center cover, welded the fuel tank and replaced the rear spring with a set from a 68 Dodge Dart...sits nice now. I have my electronic ignition ready to go on but not yet have done the deed....current distributor has a bad vacuum advance and not worth messing with with the intent to go electronic. I found a parts car afterwards and grabbed it for chump change and it is a 62 GT Hubcaps and trim rings are in the trunk..provide an excellent finishing touch.

    Hello everyone! I feel very fortunate to have a 1937 Dodge Pickup that my great, great grandfather purchased brand new. It's been in the family since day one and it's all original. My grandpa's best recollection is that it was last truly "driven" in the 90's. It's been parked at a property of ours since and started periodically. It honestly fires right up and will certainly drive but has no brakes so when I move it I just use the parking brake. Clearly brakes are most important but beyond that I'm trying to give it a little "life". No clue the last time the oil was changed, probably 25 years ago, so I'll do that but I can't for the life of me figure out where or even IF there is an oil filter. I've tried to look at images and forums but from what I see, I simply don't have one? Next up would be it smoking, when it's first fired up or really anytime you give it a fair amount of gas it smokes like hell, part of me says this is a combination of very old gas which almost surely doesn't have any lead in it, likely 25-40 year old plugs, an oil bath air filter (had no idea those existed!), super old oil that's likely worthless and more. What I hope is it's not terrible valve stem seals, oil rings etc. So, I'm planning to order all new wheel cylinders, a master cylinder (I figure it's cheap insurance vs one that's been bone dry for who knows how long), all new hoses, oil, considering water pump but not sure it needs one, oil pan gasket, spark plugs, rear axle seals (leaked on the passenger side when drums were removed). Any other ideas, suggestions etc? It seems the transmission leaks as well, I'll address all that once I get a better understanding on where things sit. Simply trying to see how close to road worthy she is for now, not that I'll be putting many miles on it, just don't want to break it if I don't have to. None of the tires match and all are bias ply and I must assume with a tube. What's the best route there? My guess is the wheels aren't really designed for a modern tubeless/radial tire? Shocks will be done amongst other things. I guess I'm mostly just looking to see if I end up needing to tear out the motor/trans and rebuild before I spend much time on the other parts. But, I'd love all of your input! Currently the plan is to order all of the parts from dcmclassics.com - Good or bad idea? I'm 100% open to suggestions Here's a couple videos of her running. Many months between starts (shame on me I know)

    1940 Dodge D14 Build Thread

    Hello everyone. I wanted to start a one-place thread to update the group on this build. I have a couple little threads out there, but this one will tell the story (comedy or tragedy, we'll see) on the breathing new life into my 1940 Dodge D14. To tell the story, we have to rewind to 2008 ... that is when I sold my 1973 Stingray. The wife and I then got a boat ... and you know what they say about those. Fast forward through 7 years or so of nagging her until she finally caved and agreed to get another car ... her only requirement, it needed to have 4 doors ... done. I knew I wanted to get a prewar car and I started this adventure in 2015 looking to get a 1937 Desoto. The deal fell through the day I was going to pick it up - the seller decided not to sell it/ or sold it to someone else, I'll never know now. A few weeks went by and I found this 1940 gem for sale in Pennsylvania ... called the guy and went right out to take a look. Here are the photos when we looked at it/brought it home back in 2015. Cutting it close on the prewar era and some say it;s not ... but it was made by the US in the US and we were still technically not IN the war until 41 ... that's my story!

    Suggest you take a look at the Diamondback Tires website. I bought tires from them for my P15. You can specify the whitewall width you want, since they attach the whitewall to the tires. I don't recall what the price was, except that they were cheaper than Coker. I've been very happy with mine, and they've been on the car for about 6 years now. (Mine are 3" wide)

    Rain x works great if you start out with a very clean wind shield and follow the instructions to the letter.....why not hook a vacuum canister up inline between the engine and your wipers to boost vacuum? They really suck.........lol.

    Since the original post stated lowered cars and trucks, I thought I would add my truck. The question comes up on how to lower them quite a bit. Up front, Nostalgia Sid dropped the front axle 3". Also new front springs with the second from the bottom leaf removed. Out back, new 7 leaf springs from McVeigh spring. Starting at second from the bottom, removed every other leaf and left a total of four. Also used the Willy's shackles instead of the Dodge for a bit more drop.

    Lowered the '41 today.

    Cut 1 and 1/2 coils up front and 3" blocks in the rear. Rides way better no more 'floaty' feeling. Yes that's a technical term. It's getting there!

    HI, I am looking for any advise people might have about making my truck more reliable. I have just a acquired my 53 fargo pick up from a guy here in BC. I am missing a horn ring and some of the electrics are not working at all. I am guessing the wiring harness and the grounding there of are problems on older trucks. Look forward to being an active member of the forum. Best, Eugene.

    I didn't think about posting motorcycle pics!! This is my 1968 Norton Atlas 750. Lots of engine mods, and now that it's finished; still didn't have cables and stuff on in this pic; I've decided it's too purty to ride. I have a '62 Norton 650SS for riding, at least as long as I'm still able to kick it over.

    Making progress! 325 inches of vintage hemi! New pistons sure look nice. I really like the Clay Smith double roller timing set with 9 way keyway. Running at 2 degrees advanced for a bit more torque. Original engine deck measured .013 difference from corner to corner and the pistons were .090 down in the bore with a calculated 7.0:1. New pistons are .005 down in the bore and will be 9.5:1.

    Over Heating

    That is totally incorrect. The spring on the thermostat goes towards the engine block. When the thermostat opens hot coolant enters the top of the radiator and cools as it drops to the bottom of the radiator where it returns to the suction side of the pump to be circulated through the engine.

    Most of the people I've known that put after market cams in an engine tend to be heavy on the throttle, and wind 'em up to feel the extra power and acceleration. These flatheads are torque engines and do not like high RPM's. If you put an Isky, or any cam other than stock in, keep the grind mild and don't continually wind it up. The hotter you make an engine, the shorter its life. These flatheads are best enjoyed for what they are. I love the way I can slow to 10 mph in high gear, ease into the throttle, and it just starts pulling. No bucking and jumping, it just goes. An important feature when they were made and the roads were poor.

    Got a link to that article? FWIW, pretty much every law I've seen or heard about regarding automotive equipment had a "manufactured on or after" clause in it. Heck the last I checked, the California Motor Vehicle Code still has the details about what you need to do to be legal with solid rubber tires (seen that on a big truck in the last 90 or so years?) and carbide headlights (seen that on a car in the last 100 years?). Both of those are legal but may have the same restrictions now they had way back when (e.g. there is a pretty slow maximum speed for vehicles with solid rubber tires).

    Hey Frankie, not a problem, Tell Emsey that I am dry today except for perspiration from working on the house. We are now again in need of rain. The ground soaked Erma up like a sponge....I had my feet wet many times during the storm going out to clear this or that..one time I took the chain saw down the street to cut huge oaks that had blown down across the road blocking both lanes. Lady told me as I walked back to the house that she had called the county, they came out, looked at the mess, the limbs still swaying in the breeze and got in their truck and left...I could never sleep at night knowing that was there and the possibility that an elderly neighbor may need emergency ambulance service and they had to find an alternate route to their house.

    Well, finally I am back out cruising. It's been a very busy August and into Sept. I had my '53 out today for a heck of a great time. I wanted to check in here, update the thread and share the fun. I'll start by going back to August. My father passed away in August. Eventually brain cancer took him. He was 74 and diagnosed 6.5 years ago. He had 3 brain surgeries and we were grateful for the extended time we got with Dad. I spent tons of time with Dad, and he loved my '53 Windsor Deluxe. Things got crazy busy from there. Then our 2 sons left home for University. Both are gone. Now it's just Momma and I. This past week was our first grocery shop for 2 in over 20 years. It was fun, and cheap! Here's Dad and I back in June. This was Dad's last trip to visit our family in our home. Unfortunately my Windsor Deluxe was down for a valve job at the time. Dad cared little. He was very excited to get in and feel the luxury of the old Chrysler. From right inside the garage. Today the Canadian autumn weather was perfect. Sunny but cooler. I fired up the '53 and went for a few different cruises around town. I found 2 different excuses to head out, to go buy what I needed in the old girl. I meet so many neat people when I am out in the '53. (That's we call it, "The '53") Someone pulled up behind me when I parked, and he got out to talk to me. The fellow told me he saw me drive by about 3 miles back and chased me down. LOL. He had to talk to me about the car. He said, "I had to come talk to you and find out all about this beautiful car." He went on, "I cannot recall seeing one in many years. This is the first old Chrysler Windsor I have seen in this town." We chatted for about half an hour. He asked me what the fuel milage was. "I have no idea", I told him. I drive it for pure pleasure. I stop for gas and drop in $10 or $20 whenever I feel like it. I guessed, when I told him it got about 12-15 MPG. I said "A better gauge would be, How many smiles per mile does it get?" Most days when I take it out, I gotta be getting over 3 smiles, thumbs up, head-nods and waves per mile. From strangers. Easily 3, maybe more. I went in to a store to buy a gallon of brake fluid. I am preparing for the brake overhaul on the '53. I came out of the store to find this: A senior couple posing for a photo. They were total strangers to me. Their son with his iphone up, taking the shot. We met, they congratulated me on the car. We had a few laughs and they really enjoyed the car. Grandpa was looking at the chrome dash assembly and smiling. Grandma was looking in at the back seat and smiling. Lol. Maybe bringing back some memories. I cruised past a few new vintage-car friend's homes that I have met, since buying the '53. I enjoyed lots of good socializing and laughs. My last stop was at a local senior's home, who I also met through my car. He is down sizing and selling off lots of his stuff. I have bought a few things from him. He owns a 1955 Pontiac. Today I bought a vintage 1950's bake-lite tube, home radio from him. Also some 1953 to 1954 Popular Mechanics magazines. I went through a huge pile and picked out several with car reviews from the 1950's. I have a Desoto review article from 1952. One on what owners are saying about their 1954 Chryslers. Another Giant Supplement on all 1953 cars for review. A review on 1953 plymouths, and finally, 1953 - "The Owners Report On The Dodge". I am anxious to get started reading all these Mopar review articles. I plan to scan them all and upload them here for sharing. I will be sure to start new posts for each article that I scan and share. I was thinking there might be a few folks on here who might enjoy them. Here's my radio find. I will service this tube AM radio myself and have it working like new. Also here you can see how I solved my modern iphone charging problem. My iphone charger is in the trunk. It doubles as a booster pack for the 6V slow cranker. Mind you I have had no use for it's boosting power yet. My 6V electrical system is in great condition and performs flawlessly. The car starts no problem, even after sitting for prolonged periods. I continue to find great new things and interesting people through my car. I am amused at how it has enriched my life. I had no idea. - Keith

    Nice truck.....I went to a local car show, I was the only Dodge truck, the only other Car in the category was an old rusted out Plymouth Satilite the owner was turning into a drag car. They had a trophy for Best Dodge I figured I at least has a 50/50 shot.. The rat rod Plymouth won over my mostly original truck...I was quite disappointed, good thing I don’t have the truck just for car shows. I do enjoy every time I show up and I am the only Job Rated in the show.

    Need 6v help

    Sounds like either the coil or the points to me. Most likely the coil. "Point bounce" is more common in engines that turn a lot more RPM's than your flat 6 turns. Since it is a good idea to carry a spare coil,points,condenser,and distributor cap in the trunk anyhow,and a HELL of a lot cheaper than paying a roll-back to carry you home,why not just buy all that stuff new and try it one at a time until the problem goes away,starting with the coil? Coils crack and get burnt out from getting too hot from bad grounds,but it's the cracked ones that operate fine to start an engine and then operate at low RPM's. Once they get hot and the demand on this climbs from higher RPM the crack widens from the heat and you lose fire.

    Steve...the parts page you printed show the three washer as having the same parts breakdown number and shows THREE of these in your picture....look close....there is one of the first contradictions.....now for the truth per my manual and using the asterisk beside the part number...661446 is .031 thick and IS LISTED OPTIONAL USE AS NEEDED as is 669412 being a .015 and also IS LISTED OPTIONAL USE AS NEEDED and 672641 as .047 and IS LISTED OPTIONAL USE AS NEEDED ........BUT......... the commutator end is 648387 and is .065 thick and is NOT OPTIONAL all come under the same drawing number of 8-52-121...now the real killer here is this....you use the washer as you have on hand or as needed to obtain the armature end play of .005 to .030 play on assembly...you do not want less than .005 and you want no more than .030...that is the call for the different thickness washer and why my book list them as optional..they are to address end play per application.....

    Our trucks were built in a different time.There were no highways and just in general the speeds that they were driven at were much slower. I wish I could find it but a while back I was doing research on posted speed limits during the 40's and I found a page that listed them state by state. If I remember right the average speed limit was 45 to 50. Many states didnt even have a speed limit, it was more of a case of what speed was prudent. The roads were just not designed with high speeds in mind. Personally I have no problem with keeping the brakes, suspension and just my whole truck in general stock but I drive it the way it was intended. I remember what my Dad always told me when he turned the keys to his B1B over to me when I started driving.... "be nice to it, its a senior citizen". He let me drive it every day and it was my daily driver until I got my '69 Charger R/T. I think a lot depends on where you live and the conditions you drive in and of course what your looking for in your truck and how you want to drive it . I live in a small town and outside of town we get from place to place on Hwy 80 which for the most part has a 55 to 65 speed limit. Much of it is lower. We are surrounded by wide open space aka desert and the roads are pretty much flat and straight with a few slight hills and curves here and there thrown in. No bumper to bumper stop and go traffic My B1B has 3:54 gears and is more than capable of traveling 75 or more but but I just stay local. Mechanically it is very sound and all.I will drive to Tombstone or Sierra Vista if I get the hankering and usually no farther not because I cant, but because I think its better to drive my '94 Mazda pickup (Ford Ranger) that Dad left I just drive the speed limit and enjoy every moment of it. I drive it like it was intended and designed . I make sure there is a lot of room between me and the person Im behind which is usually pretty easy to do because Im driving the posted limit (55) and most folks dont. At least until the snowbirds arrive who generally drive 10 to 20 below the speed limit at all times. It is not uncommon for some to drive 25 to 30 in a 55 on HWY 80 . Grrrrrr . I can see why folks would want to update their brakes and front suspension especially if they live in a place or drive in conditions that make it better to have the updated components or just because they want to and can. Me.... Im lucky, the roads in my area aside from I-10 that passes by my town haven't changed much in the past 60+ years so they are just perfect for our trucks . For me a major part of it is the charm of driving it the way it was made right down to the 16" bias ply tires that go bump, bump, bump when they are cold hahaha. If I lived in a bigger city or regularly drove it in a congested conditions or at high speeds I might be inclined to perform some updates too. To me its all about your vision of what you want your truck to be and the conditions that you drive in. John

    Here are pictures of the previous two weeks worth of work. This side was a lot worse than the other. I had to make a lot of panels in the A pillar area, and I had to get into the floor a little more too. I am farther along than the pictures (I didn't take any pictures this week). I have the drivers inner and rockers in and welded. I have the rear dog leg by the fender repaired, and the rear wheel well is rust-free now. All I have left is to fit and install one small floor patch and the sill plates. I feel like I'm getting there though! After this is done, I will move on to the rear of the body by the trunk (two small patches), and it will need a patch in each fender it looks like. I am hoping to get some of the filler and blocking done this year in hopes to paint it in the spring (or late fall maybe). It would be really nice to get the body done and painted before it gets too cold so we can assemble it in the winter. I'm probably being too optimistic though, but time will tell! You can also see the damage on the doors that I'll have to straighten. I worked on them a few hours already, but I have a long way to go. Its going to a challenge with a black car! Once again - Disclaimer - I'm no expert!

    Engine block number help

    If I may suggest, try to get your new title issued with the body serial number rather than the engine number. Although you may never need to change the block, whom ever follows you might and then they would be back in line at the dmv...

    I am back to work and talked to our machinist and he is not able to commit to making more at this time. If that changes in the future, I will revisit it then. Neil
