  1. That Hemi should pull it just fine!!!!😁
  2. Enjoyed your posts again. Beautiful property. Your car looks right at home.
  3. I agree with getting it checked out by a good mechanic. It could be almost road ready or a complete nightmare. If you’re not really looking for a hot rod, the 5k should get you a good running unmolested stocker which I believe will be more reliable, less expensive and more fun in the long run.
  4. Good to know. I need some side glass for my coupe and planned on a winter project to install.
  5. Way cool. Suitable for framing in the man cave!
  6. There it is! Right between those two old cars.
  7. Good project, good advice from the gang. You asked about rubber early on. Might try Steele rubber company. Find them on line and they will send you a listing of all the rubber they carry for your car. I sure agree with trying to bring the six back to life. They’re tough engines. Get it running, then upgrade as you learn.
  8. What! 16K into the body??? Can’t see it. Are you sure it isn’t $1,600? At this this point, as Chrysler1942 said, it’s parts.
  9. After changing tire size I questioned the accuracy of my speedometer. My cell phone was great for dialing in the correction.
  10. I'm about a week late to the party but I'll jump in. Sell it as a complete car. Sold and gone. Parting it out would take all your time and many busted knuckles. Parts of it would be around for years. Good project for someone who can do the work themselves. I'd take a look if I were closer but, realistically, from the photos, not running, 4 doors, rusty floor, it's about a $500 car.
  11. Glad this thread is back on track. I was starting to get a headache.
  12. Baling wire has got me home more than one time. Should be in every toolbox right beside the duct tape.😁
  13. Cleaned mine up when I had the dash out. It had years of old stiff black grease in it. Used the white lithium to re-grease. It made a noticeable difference. Prior to that I shot WD-40 down it, cranked it up and down and wiped the black off the metal strip each time. It did help loosen it up. I’ll pick up a replacement if I ever see one.
