Hi folks. I’m happy to join one of the best-respected forums on the web. I’ve never had a flathead-era MoPar, so I haven’t had any reason to do more than lurk up to now. I still don’t have one, technically, but once I get a bunch of early Ford stuff sold, I want to build a ‘40s-style Dodge Brothers hop up with all pre-1949 Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler, and Imperial parts. On paper, this calls for a ‘15-‘22 Dodge Brothers roadster with a ‘23-‘26 cowl; the brakes, floor-shift trans, and rear axle from a ‘38 Chrysler; 19x4 wire wheels ala ‘29 DeSoto; and a postwar flathead six (I’m undecided as to whether the 23-inch or 25-inch engine) with a couple carburetors and an alloy head. I’m looking forward to picking the brains here and hopefully harvesting some of your castoffs. Thanks for having me! -Dave
Just wanted to introduce myself. I was on this forums years ago when I bought the car before I went off to college. Now that I have graduated and been working for a few years, I have the car in my own garage and am ready to work. I bought the car about ten years ago. I pulled it out of a field in Indiana. It is really complete. At some point the car was wrecked, new front fenders were put on. The front bumper, passenger side front bumper brakets, bumper apron, and passenger park light bezel are damaged. Otherwise just some of the common rust issues... rocker panels, a few body mounts, around parts of the trunk opening. My goal for the car is to make a nice daily driver out of it. Discs all the way around, shock relocation, 12v with all new wiring, and most likely the most controversial an ls engine. Before I went off to college I changed points and put in a new condensor and battery. Fired up and the whole car started smoking from the original wiring. I was not going to let the car burn up so it pretty much sat until now. I have only made minor progress since getting it in my own garage. Most of the time has been spent organizing the garage. I look forward to talking with everyone. Thanks, Andrew
