Very cool, this is like re-living when I brought my 48 coupe home and started on it. Subscribed for sure!

I might have a few parts laying around as I had several 46-52 Plymouths and Dodges. I'll see what I have and PM you.

Thanks falconvan.
I went and looked at a parts car. It was a 1950 Coronet, but it was a 4 door and he wanted too much money for it. Not that there weren't parts that I could have used. It just goes against my grain to pay more for a parts car then I did for the project car.
I have it to get to my local yard to see what he has. Maybe this weekend.

Torchie, if only your friends were a little more generous, your motor dreams could be solidified. Here's a few pictures of possibilities. A 354 Hemi and a 318 Poly.

Torchie, French Lake Auto Parts has several '49-'54 Mopars. If you need an item and can't get it in your neighborhood and is shippable, let me know. My friend Titus goes there almost every week.

My friends on here have always been generous MM........ I believe the one from the boat is a 354. I may stop and see that guy tomorrow. At this point the drive train isn't a big concern.

Thanks bob. My local yard has 2 of these according to the guy that I got mine from. He has gotten parts for his other one from them.
I may get over there tomorrow as I just came from my leg guys and they fixed the brace on my real leg along with the brace on the fake leg so I'm feeling fairly stable. At least physically .
Thanks for checking up on me....

Todays little victory that only took half the day to do.
After 4 stops at different tire places near me I finally located a used 15" tire.
I also wanted to deal with the fact that the PS wheel was frozen, so I got out the big hammer and the big stick. It spins now.
The tire isn't exactly the right profile but i was lucky to get it.
My weekly Drs appt. is tomorrow. (Hopefully the second to the last one of these.) and then possibly getting the doors hung or getting the bolts needed to mount the steering column. Or both....
And then on to the holiday weekend. Which means I will stay away from the local towns.
Thanks for visiting....
Torchie

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
