    There is no updates for now. I have other car to work on in this winter. If i get it ready for next summer, i can repair chrysler again. There is massive oil leaks in engine, transmission , rear axle and steering gear. i need to find new seals and parts first.

    There is no progress in here, only driving, 5000km and no problems. That is pretty good for a car that's been in a barn for a 19 years. No its time to rest this winter.

    ...some troubles with internet connection... OK. Thanks guys, i am very pleased with the progress of the steering wheel. Thank you for the offer. i have to do some research, bodywork looks very diffrent at least. There is only copper lines available in my location. Why steel lines? previous owner has cutted of some pieces. Can somebody tell me what these pictures sould normally look? (pictures are inside of the front fenders)

    Winter is over much has been done since last post. I got the car running, Brakes are all new, Wiring is mostly done. I'm trying to repair oil leaks... Streering wheel(still needs work)
  9. Chrysler Windsor -51 Build Thread.

    I think it is worth trying.... Little progress with this. Redone some wiring,new battery+cables and new bulbs(6v).
  10. Chrysler Windsor -51 Build Thread.

    I think that this car has very nice steering wheel and i started to fix that. something to do inside, only the smell is really bad(steering wheel smells like cat pee). I'm going to glue the pieces together with Kent Rapid Bond and then use PC7 epoxy to fill holes.
  11. dim dash lights

    you should replace old bulbs. It helps some. But you should also measure that dimmer. If its not work correctly, the current is lower than 6 volts.

    Thanks guys. Cold weather is not so bad I think that this model is no very common in here. There is no rust holes in the car and engine is not jammed. Previous owner has bought new brake drums and tyres. He has also redone front and rear seats. Wiring is toasted and need replacement. I'm keeping 6 volt system. Crome parts Are gone. somebody has sandblasted the bumpers and then painted in silver. I ordered new brake hoses, coil, master cylinder,carb rebuil kit and new battery.
  13. Hello This is my first American car. The car is pretty bad shape and some parts are missing. Car is imported to Finland in 1957 and it has been run last time in 1997. 251CID 6 cylinder/ Fluid Drive. The speedometer reading is in Kilometers instead of miles. More pictures later....
