Ready to start on the Plymouth...PICS

Hey Gang...

After much hassle with the construction and completion of my shop, I am FINALLY ready to start on my 1941 Plymouth Hot Rod project. As I stated before in other post, I am going for look that a guy in the 60's would have done with the car.

I am going with a 275hp Mopar 273 with A833 4 speed with Ford 9" rear, fat wide white wall radials with full moon racing disks, NOISY exhaust...etc...

Anyhoo, just wanted to say thanks for all the guys who answered my questions and shared their wisdom, which can only be obtained by the building of these great cars. Rest assurred, that I will be back on here looking for help again!

This is a great community!

Here are some before pics...





And here's the shop...

UPDATE on project..more Pics!

Hey Gang....

Things are moving along with the 60's HotRod 41 Plymouth. I have been scrounging parts, ebay-ing like a madmad, and fabricating all the little bits that don't exist.

SO here's some pics!

Here's a pic of the removal of the boat anchor motor. It was surprising how BIG this motor was. And to think I was concerned whether or not a V8 would fit...I could probably have been able to fit a big block in there!


This is the tranny support/crossmember that I fabbed up. The side tabs are 1/4" steel and the 1" square tube has 2/8" walls...I was doing chin ups on it to check for strength.


Here's a pic of the 273ci with a purdy new paint job. I am using original 340 exhaust manifolds, 4 barrel cast iron intake, 273 Charger air cleaner.


Here's the front end after I fabbed up and installed the motor mounts, added the fabbed bracket for the clutch cylinder (next to brake master), and painted the bay. The mounts are poly bushings with steel inserts that are welded onto brackets that I made of 1/4" steel plate. A 7/16 bolt goes through the motors factory motor mount tabs and through the mounts.


Here;s a pic from tonight after I cleaned the place up a bit. As you can see, the 73 Chevelle is home now, so I am having to jockey the cars around to used the hoist. On that topic, the hoist has been the greatest tool that I have out there. Makes pulling an engine pretty easy!


Tommorow's task is actually dropping the motor/trans into the bay...AND LEAVING IT THERE! No more fitting, and adjusting, and messing around! I'll keep the pics coming.

Oh..here's a bit of Musclecar porn for all you other pistonheads! 1973 Chevelle with 475hp 383ci Stroker motor. Alum heads/intake, 11:1 forged pistons, full roller motor...4.10 gears, built trans, etc...

IT LIVES! Plymouth now running!

Hey Gang...

Here's an update on the 41 Plymouth retro-rod project.

Me and the little lady got the last bit of work done to get the engine put together and running. Here's a pic and video. Still have lots to do, but I am on the way. I need to get the car done by mid-August for Mopar Fest...I already registered to go!

More pics to come as I move along...

My thoughts exactly! And not only did I use a Mopar engine, but I used a hard-to-find early one instead of a run-of-the-mill 318 out of a pickup. My 273 is a 1965 from a Barracuda (factory 4 barrel). Sounds nasty...solid lifter motor too, so she'll wind out nicely.

Tommorow I am going to sandblast and paint the new rear axle and rims.

The 273 is a great little engine. Had one in my '64 Barracuda my senior year in high school. It was only three years old then and it even had a push button torqueflight.

nice

breathtaking. really nice piece of work. I love chrysler. The heart shaped grill sets these apart from the standard fiberglassed up willys. The willys look good too but theyve become run of the mill. Im all for the chrysler products that arent mitsubishi driven. I hope fiat doesnt ruin the last ten years of rebuilding a reputation.

Hey...I wish you had emailed me in the fall...when I gave the whole engine away! I had JUST completely rebuilt the carb, and it was working great. Ah well...
