  1. Thanks Andy, I will give you a call! I noticed this on a Windsor convertible that could be an option too.
  2. Here’s a few shots of the mouldings on the car.
  3. Thanks Andy, I will get a photo or two and post them up here of the mouldings I have. There a lot of original items the car is missing sadly.
  4. Been a while since I have posted, about to get stuck into a few more jobs on this in coming weeks main things will be to source a dash to match the cluster and find the trim that is on the cowl. Bodywork wise I am removing the filler that was previously fabricated into the top of the rear 1/4 and finding a better fuel tank solution than the one fitted inside the trunk. The rear guards also need some final touches along with the trunk lid prior to paint. All new glass is on it's way and in coming weeks I hope to tick a lot more off the list.
  5. Here's a better shot of the mockup, I will make a new panel and keep hunting a surround to suit.
  6. HI Andy, yeah I won't be throwing any of the bits I'm taking off away, the wheel is a new Moon wheel along with a heap of other gear that came with the car, all destined to go on a friends Willys Coupe Chassis.
  7. IF anyone has a lead on a 41 cluster surround please let me know, and a good steering wheel for a 40 that would be appreciated.
  8. Cluster has arrived safely and is a bit of an improvement, now to modify the dash to suit and find/make a surround. Steering wheel may also be changed out if I can find a suitable one.
  9. Here's how the dash had been modified.
  10. Been a bit slack with my updates of late, haven't spent a lot of time on the car lately due but now back into it again. A couple of things I am hunting for are the body trims for the cowl section, I have all the trims for the bonnet, doors and rear quarter panels. The other thing I really need is dash parts to suit a 1941 Chrysler, mainly the instrument surround as I have tracked down a mint instrument cluster which is a big improvement over the aftermarket gauge set that came with it. Otherwise I now fully stripped the body and are working through tidying up a few small bits of bodywork left and setting up the tri power on the 318 Poly. Next step will be to get a tailshaft made up and a fuel tank made. Given I am more going for a custom look rather than the street rod style I am thinking of going to steel rims with full size caps so I rolled the car out of my garage at the weekend to get a preview by flicking some caps on the Cragars currently on the car.
  11. Yeah most were from Car Guys garage but they disappeared a while ago sadly.
  12. Yeah Mick bought from an importer around 2010.
  13. HI Andy, that is indeed the manifold I have, along with an iron dual quad and a factory two barrel. I will dig some photos out of the boat engine, it's not the neatest thing getting around due to the marine conversion but when I built the motor I got rid of all the garden hose and bailing twine! Here's a before shot
  14. HI Andy, Sorry for the late reply I have been very busy with work. The engine in the chassis shots is a later one, the trans is a push button whereas the other is a conventional shift alloy t/f so another late block. The number on the good engine is A318- 9?29- 0746. I've owned quite a few Mopars over the years but this is my first foray into Poly engines. Previous cars include a two door Pacer Hardtop in Thar She Blue, a Hemi Orange Big Tank E38, an AP6 Safari, a CL Drifter Van, a CL 770 Charger (265, 4 speed), a Hillman Hunter Hustler and a Hillman Hunter 660.
