Re: 1939 Chrysler

not too much to report,ran out of mig wire Saturday night so i worked on the chassis.i had the rad/trans cooler off again for the 4th time,hunting a power steering leak,found a crack in my new rack so replaced it and thought it was problem solved?it wasn't,still leaked but found a couple of fittings on the factory lines installed,that were not tight.so far so good.i wanted to fire up the motor and change the oil/filter,i hadn't run it for almost a year,the last 10 or 12 months have been very busy.we sold our house and old shop,moved and built the new shop,had an old friend pass away and found out,she had named me her executor,so the poor old car just sat.i had installed a new plastic tank last year from Tanks Inc,with the pump in the tank but wasn't happy with the tank,found a new steel tank,so installed that with a pump module from Tanks Inc,made up some temporary fuel lines,charged a battery and fired it up.it howled and screamed like you were standing on the cats tail.i found the tin shield in front of flex plate/convertor bent a little somehow,made repairs and everything sounded great,changed the oil/filter.it was nice to hear the motor run again.it's a 360 EFI magnum motor that i rebuilt,with an overdrive automatic,all from a 1995 dodge pickup.it's the first thing i ever built that doesn't have a carb and it runs??amazing

Re: 1939 Chrysler

today's progress on the passenger side cowl area on the inside that will be under the floor boards and where the body sits on the frame.i had repaired this already but the more i looked it,the more i was unhappy with my work,so i cut most of the inside panels out,and started over.i have one more little place on the dog leg,drivers side,also repaired but i'm not happy with it, so tomorrow,i'll cut it out and re-do it,then it'll be onto the floor.i'm fortunate that 3 of the doors are in very good condition,1 not so good,i'll have to figure out a way to build a new bottom for it.i'm sure i'll come up with some sort of plan.i wish the guys who are supposed to be hauling my truck would come up with a plan???it was supposed to be picked up in Utah last friday and heading east.no such luck,still in Utah and no idea when it'll be picked up?i might just have this Chrysler done by the time these dough heads get their act together.better days are coming.

Re: 1939 Chrysler

You have a truck in Utah?

I am amazed at the work you do with metal. I wish I had that kind of skill.

A much simpler job (73 Camaro) got the best of me and I ended up selling the project because of the metal work required.

kudos to you!

thanks.it is different.i built a real nice 32 Ford Tudor sedan years ago,took it to the NSRA Nats South in Knoxville,TN,brought home the long distance award but got so sick of looking at 32 Fords.i didn't think it would be possible to stop looking at them but there were so many,i started looking at oddball stuff.can't get much more oddball than a 39 Chrysler.i bought it cause it wasn't too far away and it's grown on me some.i think it'll be fine.

Re: 1939 Chrysler

I almost bought a 39 Dodge years back but I couldn't get the owner to settle on a price. I really like how these cars resemble the back of a 38-40 Ford.

hi Ryan,these do look like a ford sedan from the rear and the nose of mine,sorta looks like a 40 Willys.if i don't put the Chyrsler emblems on it,not many people will know what the heck it is?i started a similiar project years ago but never finished it,a 36 dodge 4 door sedan,i thought it was a very attractive car.they're all nice if you do a good job on them,i figure?Greg
