Some updated photos of the ol' girl

Recommended Posts

Going to share a few photos of how she's looking now. A lot has changed since March of 2012. 

Here's the dash how it looks today. Better than it did. Still have to take the wheel off and paint it. Just trying to find the right shade of tan to paint it.

I also found a rebuilt 201 out of a '41 Plymouth P-12. Motor, transmission and complete on eBay. Pretty nice price and man, this motor runs nice! Had a shop do the swap, came out pretty nice I think.

Before and after:

Robert the car looks very nice. The engine you swap you did surely improved the look of the engine. Looks great now I need to do mine on both cars.

Hey, it's been some time since I've last visited the ol group here.

Any way, things are going good. The '40 is doing well and I've managed to really make it a trustworthy ol' crate.

The 218 I posed here is doing just fine, keep it happy and it's about due for a tuneup.

Earlier this year, I finally had the headliner done! I paid a little extra and had quality insulation installed too. So, it's much more tolerable to drive on a warm day! 

Here's some photos of her more recently:

Last year's trip to Big Bear Lake.
 

Leaving the cabin.


2016, up at Crystal Lake, Azusa Canyon for Christmas!
 

A white Christmas.


In 2015, got new tires, and finally found the correct hubcaps!

More photos to come. :)

Looking SWEET. What kind of insulation did you use above the headliner?

Not sure what the guy at the upholstery shop used, he charged me plenty, I'm going to wager Dynamat.

You are definitely rockin' that 40s vibe! What's in the pipe?

 I think I was puffing on some Dunhill My Mixture 965.
