  1. I have hundreds of pictures but I can only post about three at a time. A lot of them are "remind me" pictures of various parts so I could reassemble things later. I also have to downsize most of them before I can post them on the site. I used to use photobucket but haven't for years. I'll throw a couple more pictures in just for fun. I appreciate all the nice comments though. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. Floor repairs Reassembly of body parts
  2. It has the standard three speed tranny. I added a couple more pics of it in progress. And of course, the reason for doing the car...……………………………….its BIG BUTT!!
  3. I have been working on this car since 2012 and seven years later it is finally finished. I do have a few minor things left to do but it is on the road and being driven lots. It is a Canadian Dodge based on the Plymouth but using a Dodge grille and other trim. They are a very different car to the US Dodge.
  4. This is the most likely cause. Easy to adjust.
  5. Like he said. I have to do this with my 100,000+ mile '53 Plymouth. It's like it going into third as well. I've run this car like this for 30,000 miles and the tranny has never got worse. Syncro gears wear but a little TLC shifting really helps.
  6. 9K one that started this thread would be a better project in my mind. Space is another problem. Beside my '51, I also have a '48 Dodge D25 and a '53 Plymouth. Also a '63 Ford Fairlane in a rented garage. All are drivers and I would hate to sell any of them...……………………………………………………..but I am tempted with one of the trucks.
  7. My bad. There are a couple of Fargo pickups on the local Kijiji site. I could be tempted with either one but am just finishing my '51 Dodge D39 business coupe. I need another project like a hole in the head.
  8. For $600 it would be mine too and I live in Lethbridge. I think you need to add another 0 to the price as shown. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/lethbridge/1952-dodge-fargo-half-ton-pickup/1439602228?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  9. We now have a price. $9000.00 Canadian or about $US6800.00. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/lethbridge/1950-dodge-fargo-half-ton-pickup/1439305826?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  10. Just got a headliner for my '51 Dodge D39 business coupe from Headliner Mart in Dallas, Texas. Perfect fit. They have a website.
  11. Very nice work. I enjoy your videos!
  12. You are most likely right! Still haven't called.
  13. It said please contact and I assume then you could get asking price. I am not contacting as I might be tempted and I need another project like a hole in the head. Truck is about 65 kilometres (40 miles) from where I live.
  14. Ford or GM truck owner. Vehicle broke down and he got lost. Last thought...….."I shoulda bought a Dodge!"
  15. I second this. Proper tool for the job helps. Also, I have had a buddy help by pulling on the outer part of the wheel (two hands opposite each other) as I tap on the end of the shaft, with the nut level with the end to avoid damaging threads. You need good pressure pulling the wheel but not so much that it bends. With the pulling on the wheel and the tapping on the shaft, this is often enough to encourage the wheel to come off. I did this on my '38 Chrysler which was not tapped to take a steering wheel puller. Just be cautious with everything you do. You don't want to ruin a good steering wheel.
  16. Glad trip was successful and safe! Looking forward to updates on the '38. I had a '38 Chrysler touring sedan and it was a great car. Sold it about three years ago so I could quickly finish the '51 Dodge business coupe I am working on.
  17. Not sure of price. Not sure I want to phone. Not sure if I want to see it or I might be tempted. Need like I need a hole in the head. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/lethbridge/1950-dodge-fargo-half-ton-pickup-truck/1436423805?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  18. Any decent glass shop will cut you a windshield if you take in the old one as a template. Assuming it is flat glass as it is two piece. Way cheaper locally than ordering glass elsewhere. That's my experience anyway.
  19. Good luck with the picking up and towing home. Be safe! Post lots of pictures!
  20. Is this a Canadian built car? I know in '38 all Canadian cars and trucks started coming with the long block engine. As yours is an early '38 it may have had the shorter 23" engine originally. I am not sure when the longer 25" engine became standard in 1938. Always very easy to pick up an engine for any car from 1938 on as anything fits. I have a flathead from a 1955 3-ton grain truck in my Canadian built 1948 Dodge D25 Club Coupe.
  21. You are right. No vehicle is unrestorable if wanted badly enough. S
  22. I usually have three big mugs of coffee with breakfast, reading the paper, and doing the crossword and sudoku. That's usually it but will occasionally have another cup after supper if we've had company. I enjoy beer and red wine as well but would give those up before I gave up my morning coffee. Coffee is good for you if you look up information about it. P
  23. Hinges would be a start. There are also four bolts and specialty washer that hold the hinges on. Hood springs are also needed. On my '51 there is also a brace that runs beneath the hood and attaches to each hinge. Think that covers it except for a few bolts needed for the brace which also needs a bolt in the centre of the hood. S
  24. That looks like a decent car at a decent price. Closer inspection would be wanted before purchase but overall it could be a great car with some TLC. Gotta remember too that parts can be hard to find and expensive for the Straight 8 engine. U
