    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Apologies if this one has already been posted.

    Rust free 40 plymouth sedan

    Also finally got around to fixing my glove box lock. The "pusher part was broken and wouldn't stay in place and was finally lost somewhere along the Deuce Day cruise in 2016 (probably in the hotel parting lot in Vernon) Since then I've been having to use my keys or a pen to flip the catch but today I decided to fix it. I started with a 5/8" brass bolt. I was hoping for an aluminum bolt (we had an old friend that use to work for the shipyard and was always dropping off different bolts) but couldn't find one in our stash. Working from memory of what the original pusher looked like I turned this on the lathe. I used a spring out of a pen to detente the pin to keep it all together. Next job...headliner?๐Ÿค”

    Rust free 40 plymouth sedan

    Well I'm back at playing on the Plymouth again. Last year didn't turn out the way I thought ( "best laid plans of mice and men", I guess) so the Plymouth spent most of the year collecting dust in the corner of the shop. I'm still try to finish up some of the things that were overlooked in an effort to get it driving, some of which are not so much fun to complete and, of course are also the things that have to be done to pass inspection for collector status. One of the projects just completed was the heater. I updated it to 12 volts my local parts house had it in stock and it was a direct bolt in. When I was doing bodywork and smoothing the firewall I welded brackets to the inside so that I could mount the heater keeping the firewall smooth and I could drill holes for the hoses where I wanted them. This requires a little extra plumbing but also allowed me to hide the heater control valve.

    Any information on this body number?

    The car in the picture looks more like a 1940. Like a p-9 or p-10.

    Beautiful car! I really dig it. What type/size tires are you running?

    I wasn't confident in the vacuum canister fuel system when I restored my 1927 Chrysler and because went the 6 volt electric fuel pump and regulator route and found that I couldn't reduce the pressure enough to not over run the carburetor float needle. I ended up going back to the original vacuum canister and just spent a lot of time making sure everything was sealed properly and was surprised how well it worked. The car doesn't get a lot of driving and there are no 5 mile hill climbs around here but seems to work well for regular driving

    Hello, I am new here

    Nice car! I'm pretty partial to the 40 sedans myself. Were any modifications made to the suspension?

    from the driver's seat and other images

    This one is from the passenger seat but still cool to me. Blasting down the back roads of central Alberta in my buddy Dale's 54 Olds with canola fields on either side, not much of a stretch to imagine that it's the 50's.

    Cell phones and driving

    I think cars are too easy to drive now. I occasionally take my dad's 1927 Chrysler out for a drive and there's so much work involved shifting, steering adjusting spark etc that there's no time to be distracted by the phone.๐Ÿ˜ Glad your granddaughter was ok.
