    1940 Desoto Sedan and two 1947 Desoto Suburbans. I know they are not Plymouth or Dodge but I am saving some of the best cars ever made when compared to the junk of today. I have my eye on a Dodge Hearse with dual side mounts if I can get him low enough.

Recommendations from all of you in the know. Andy Bernbaum has a list of parts that he is selling that are bored over or undersize to get the extra power I want. Since it does get hot here, I want to add after market a/c. Does anyone have recommendations or have done the same thing I'm trying to do? I am tearing the engine down now and the block seems to be in good shape. Some of the parts seem worn but that is expected.
  5. I don't remember the name of the company but have you thought of having the steering wheel repaired? Surely someone can come up with the name or names of a company that does that kind of work.

  6. Tombstone, I want to do the same thing to my 40 Desoto. I followed the instructions for using the search forum but got no results. Did you find anything when you searched the sites? Can anyone direct me to the correct area?
