  1. Having gone the hemi route and how well it fits... you know my vote.
  2. If you were using an old poly V8 or hemi and were lucky enough to find the front engine mount that was similar in style to the L6 version, it would be a bolt in affair. But in your case, you will need to make engine mounts for the 318.
  3. Just my 2 cents on your project... the 54+ came with a V8 option so there is room without cutting the firewall and the steering box has plenty of clearance. An aluminum radiator for a stock V8 can be found on ebay and mounts a couple inches forward of the stock L6 radiator. I used a stock bell housing and tranny, so it all bolted up in the back, just needed to make motor mounts up front. Take a look at my 55 C1B build for more info and pics.
  4. Do you have a better picture of the long oval trim piece where the ignition key is at?
  5. Looks like the 53 and earlier guys have a nice option for power steering. The 54+ guys are out of luck on this setup.
  6. Loving the fuel pump. I think I have the same one and its the noisiest damn thing on the truck!
  7. Took her out to a local cruise night burger joint. Definitely need to get the new tranny installed and a heavier clutch built. Maybe once car show season slows down.
  8. So today I got a wild hair and decided to try something different since I was at a show last weekend and I spotted about 8 cars with the same wheels. I thought i would try some old school Mooneyes Racing spinners to give it a different look. I am on the fence about the look. The center bullet is a bit much and maybe the American Racing ones with a flat center would of been a better choice. What do you guys think?
  9. That one pictured looks like it mounts differently than my early 55.
  10. Saw this old switching locomotive on a truck yesterday on I-5. Looks like there used to be a Plymouth Locomotive Works. Thought I might share even though it wasn't the same Plymouth we all think of.
  11. I swapped to 3.73's from a 54 Plymouth and run 225/60/17's at 27.5" tall. I drive it to Vegas as back yearly. I can hold 70mph at 3200 rpms all day. A quick sprint up to 3400 would get me to 75 for passing. This was with my 218 flathead.
