spikes long overdue update
« on: November 03, 2017, 23:43:21 »

Picked up this almost rust free 88 5th ave, bought it to cut up for kevski3's old lebaron coupe as the front floors, rockers and lower quarters are rotted out. Previous owner rattle canned it black and when I went to wash it must of the paint blew off

Which brings me to my latest project/daily winter beater since the bearings in the green dakota engine are bad and it looses oil pressure once warmed up and not worth fixing. Got a hell of a deal on it even though there were no keys for it so I had no idea how it ran, found a key that worked and it fired up with a jump and barely ran, trailered it home and check fluids, trans was super low, added some as it would slip, got it to run half ass decent and took it for a beat, no 3rd gear and it would hammer into reverse and kill the engine, and engine had real bad blowby and couldn't get it to run right, so I yanked the engine/trans from the 88, removed the rust free front clip and installed the rusted/busted one from my high school car, rattle canned it black, threw air shocks in the rear from the 88 and cranked up the torsion bars to fit...get this 31" tires...I love how mean this thing looks now

Then in  I believe september me n my lil brother drove down to indiana and picked up a 39 dodge wc 1/2 ton chassis since I don't have an original chassis, sold the beat up 39 fenders, yanked the engine/trans and set the 46 cab on it with a pair of fenders (I'm gonna use the 39 nose)

Space is a dangerous thing to have.  I'd fill it up even faster than that. haha  My father picked up a 39 Plymouth coupe.  Then we found a 40 plymouth parts car.  Then we found a 39 Plymouth parts car.  Then we found a 37 DeSoto parts car......  Slippery slope.   :D
