    Flat head supercharged

    How about a hybrid that is truly a supercharger AND turbo?

    A Nice Dodge Taillight Solution

    When I did mine, I didn’t want to get carried away with reinventing the wheel with wiring since everything was already working. I used the factory tail lights and added another socket and bulb inside so that I had all the functions and not extra light fixtures bolted on.

    Has anybody tall thinned out their seatback?

    I have thought about thinning mine out too when I have it upholstered.
  5. Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but the 49 Plymouth should be a 218 correct? The 57 would of had a 230.

    C Series Gauge Question?

    I have tried the runtz style and am not happy with the results. The voltage is too high and the gauges aren’t that accurate. However, I am not giving up and will soon try one as recommended by Kevin. I would agree that the mechanical oil pressure gauge is the way to go. It is the one I look at the most anyways. As for fitting new guts inside your original gauges, good luck and post up some pics if you can make it work. There isn’t a lot of room to work with there.

    Dodge Ram?

    I took all of these badges off my 3500 and only left the Cummins badges. I didn't realize people would want them. I threw them away.

    1955 C1B Build Thread

    Wayfarer, Havent gotten that far yet. I had to rebuild the tranny in my Chenowth and currently have to finish up the engine in my Funco. Its currently dune season and the Dodge has had to go onto the back burner until the cars get finished up. However, right after the new year, I need to get back onto the Dodge full time so I can be ready for Viva. I am leaning towards the 700R4 since they make an adapter for it and they are fairly easy to get. But I havent bought anything as of yet, so its not set in stone. How difficult would it be to adapt the AX15? Also wondering about input shaft length and shifter location.

    56 Stock Radio?

    I figured as much. I know Australia is different, but the same ad claimed that this 56 truck was the first year V8 for Dodge trucks. Guess the whole add is full of bull.

    56 Stock Radio?

    I was just looking on google for rare parts and came across this AM radio on an Australian site selling classic trucks. They "claimed" it was factory... anybody ever seen anything like this?

    I like the rear fender extensions!
  13. Same here with my 3.73's going to Vegas and back...
  14. The 54 Plymouth had the same spline count as my 55. However, the Plymouth axles are shorter than the truck. I have read about people swapping out the spider gears with success. Mine was a 4.10 to 3.73 swap.
  15. I swapped a 54 Plymouth center into my 55 Dodge axle with no issues. Make sure it has the same number of mounting bolts. You do need to verify both axles have the same spline count too.
