    What panel bond did you use? Any tips for using it?

    As Ross pointed out, the Chrysler wagons are shorter than the sedans, but I believe that is because all of the C body wagons are based off the Dodge wheelbase, so sedan sheetmetal may actually match for yours.

    Cowl fresh air venting

    I added a layer of black window screen under the cowl vents. It is practically invisible, and I figure anything small enough to get through the holes in the screen will flush right out the other end.

    No gears

    Did you do something to bypass the neutral safety switch, or can you just put it in R or D and the engine will start? If that is the case, that sounds like a problem with the linkage or the valve body, which could probably be dealt with without pulling the whole transmission.

    Get your Hankook Optimo H724 WW tires while you can!

    I found a picture of those Dodge wheelcovers that showed the back and there's a problem. The dished in part with the ribs is part of the metal stamping. Only the raised center cap is removable. To use the 300 plastic center some of the metal on the Dodge cap would have to be trimmed while...

    Ammeter Bypass from scratch?

    The factory wiring runs basically all the power from the alternator to the battery through the bulkhead connector, the ammeter and then back through the bulkhead. The power for everything except the starter and the horn tees off of this wire between the bulkhead and the ammeter. This sets up 2...

    NOT MINE 1966 Chrysler 300 2DR HT Dealer car in Maine

    I absolutely can be done, but it is not a small project. I had a parts car to work from, so gathering all the parts was pretty easy. The biggest hassle is drilling the holes in the cowl and the doors to run the wiring. I couldn't see a way to do this without pulling both the doors & the front...

    Speedometer Blues

    While you are in this far, this would be a good time to make sure the odometer drums are working smoothly. Does your speedometer needle twitch when either of the odometers roll over to zero? If not, you're probably ok, but if it does, one of them is sticking a little. If it gets worse, and it...

    Speedometer Blues

    I don't know what it is, but its not supposed to be there. I'm guessing your bouncing needle is some of that goop getting caught between the magnet assembly and the speedcup and grabbing the speedcup. This is what mine looks like. The magnet shaft spins fast and is lubricated by the oil wick...

    vintage pics of downtown America

    I believe that is Detroit in 1946. There was a Golden Jubilee Parade to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the auto industry. Probably Woodward Ave downtown, but I haven't matched up any buildings yet.

    Heavy Metal

    What you see coming out of the stack on top is a mix of the actual smoke from whatever they are burning and the steam after it exits the cylinders. Smoke will be gray or black, and the steam will be clear, but when it hits the relatively cool atmosphere starts condensing back into water and...

    Cool, they have done part of the Old-27 Motor Tour for years. Nice car, nice guy & a sense of humor. (note the anchor for the land yacht)

    68 New Yorker Daily Driver

    I suspect the difference in construction between bias ply tires back then & radials now is transmitting different forces to the wheels causing more flex.

    Speedo Pinion

    The FSM says your Newport should have come with 8.25-14 tires, 2.76 rear end & a 17 tooth pinion. Based on a couple of different charts/calculations an 8.25-14 tire should have been about 27.25" tall. Putting that into the formula on the Brewster's page, the perfect gear for 8.25-14 & 2.76 is...

    Marry Christmas....

    December 2003 These are from last year when I had the car out until early December. With the weather we've had, I think I could still be driving it this year. In the last 20 years, the big Maple got replaced with 3 evergreens which now take about 4000 lights.

    Some more classic pictures

    This one had me confused for a moment as that's a '57 Olds coming out of the oven & a Pontiac over to the right. I thought all the divisions had their own plants in those days, but the internet says this is the Oshawa Ontario factory and it built most of the GM brands at the same time.

    @amazinblue82 I'm sorry, I'm big into railroads & forget that not everyone is. Didn't realize you couldn't read the sign on the bridge. The sign, the bridge & presumably the train are all New York Central. You weren't quite right with the CN thought, but very close. Notice there are 2...
