Hi! Its cold and there's a lot of snow on the ol' 72 Fury. Lets see if it will go. I bought this car about 5 years ago, and I've been using it as a daily driver since then. It shows about 75000 miles, so it should last me a while yet. I like these fuselage models, especially the 72 Fury. Its a mean looking old thing! I actually hit a moose with this car last week, and it didn't leave a mark on the car! No wonder the cops liked these things, they're incredibly tough, even if they are a bit hard to look at. Thanks for checking it out!
Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler Newport: What's Your Carbon Footprint?
Hi! Time to put the 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal 4 door hardtop into storage
before it gets completely buried. First we gotta get it started. These
babies will leave a big black soot mark wherever you start them, until the
choke heats up and pulls off. I love this car, it drives really well, and
it has been very reliable on long highway trips. I bought this car 10 years
ago to save it from the derby and replaced the front subframe due to rust.
A well maintained car, only two previous owners, mostly original in & out.
Thanks for checking it out.
'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model,
that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts
car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
1967 Chrysler Newport First Start After Sitting For 20 Years
I went to check out this car because it was advertised as having a
"valuable 440" which I wanted to rebuild and put in my 73 Challenger. When
I got there I found out it was a 383 2 bbl car in incredible shape with
69990 original miles. It had belonged to his grandfather and was parked in
1990/1991 and never started since, nor was it ever registered in anyone
else's name, so I am technically the second owner. It wasn't what I came
for but I had to take it home.
This is a video diary of getting this great old girl running and will
probably only be enjoyed by true car enthusiasts.
November 28, 2012 Update: I haven't been here in quite a while and at
first I was a bit dismayed that there are so many lonely aholes in our
world and how they tend to flock to the internet. I considered pulling the
video but realized there are many people who enjoyed it and that is who I
posted it for.
To all of those experts who know so much more than the rest of us please
keep your negative comments to yourself.
To those of you who say I should have done more before trying to start, I
- The previous owner had pulled the car out of the field with a tractor and
his buddy "may have" put the car in gear to slow it down. If the rings
were rusted the engine could have been destroyed by that action alone,
there was some resistance when I turned the crank pulley over by hand and I
was surprised it turned over that easily, but with the engine sitting that
long the rings would not be sealing to build up pressure in the cylinders.
Therefore I concluded that there was no rusting/seizing so no risk of
cylinder wall damage, or that the engine was possibly toast due to
- The oil was not milky, still "felt" oily and I only planned on running
the engine 2-3 minutes to get it off the trailer and onto my hoist to do
all the fluids, so I determined it had enough viscosity left to protect it
for a short period of time.
- Even an old fuel filter will stop any major contaminants from reaching
the carb. So why spend a bunch of money, with the steps I took the chance
of me causing any damage at all was miniscule.
For those who were so concerned about our safety, come on. We grew up on a
farm before the days of fuel injection and many farm vehicles do not get
regularly started so this is a very common practice. The risk is MINIMAL
and calculated, note that there is a fire extinguisher at 8:43 in the lower
left corner on the trailer. The jerry can is very full by design, gas
liquid does not ignite but the vapours do, note that when the gas starts to
come out of the spigot that the top of the jerry can is full of gas, not
fumes! I don't believe at any time was my brothers face over the carb,
these big old girls are so big you pretty well have to stand in the engine
compartment to do that. We did our best to slowly feed the engine as
little gas as possible to avoid flooding the engine and possibly causing
her to backfire.
Anyways, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to defend myself against a
bunch of morons who obviously have nothing better to do with their time
than to creep youtube videos so they can leave moronic comments that allow
them to feel all high and mighty ... but at least it might stop a few from
wasting our time as we try to enjoy videos of common interest.
Thanks to all for the positive comments and feedback.
Started the 1966 M35A2 this afternoon... 24 degrees out today.
No block heater, ether, or intake flame heater.
Cold Start on a 1959 Mack B61T
ALMOST 100,000 VIEWS!!!!! THANKS SO MUCH!
This is a Cold Start on a 1959 mack b61T. It was sitting about 2 years in a
trailer lot and was bought by a used car company and was then sold to me.
it took 2 days to get her running. Unfortunately i didnt get a video of the
first start in 2 years because it was raining... but she runs like a champ
Stay tuned for more videos of the restoration and updates! Subscribe...
Special Thanks to Casey K (v12detroit) for helping me change all the fluids
and run all new battery cables from the starter to the batteries! thanks
1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.
Dodge Challenger '70 first start in 4 months
Dodge Challenger '70
First start in 4 months.
Old gas, no choke.
Driven last time about 10 months ago.
Doesn't run very well when cold, gets alot better after running for a
couple of minutes. Would prefer it with choke.
Cold Start the 1986 Peugeot 505 TD! Brrrr...
Today we're going to try to cold start this 1986 Peugeot 505 turbo Diesel! These cars are known to be a "bit"
cold-blooded for the Canadian North; not many survive around here today.
Cold War Motors just picked up this 5 speed car last week; it had been
sitting outside for years and it needs a basic cosmetic redo. I hope to fix
up this sweet French cruiser next summer, but I wanted to do a Cold Start
for you all first!
Thank you all for watching and subscribing! Lots more old clunker mayhem
Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and
trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject
is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the
engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about
$20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I
traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be
saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we
find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we
can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to
steady-cam feature malfunction.
Thanks for checking it out!
1978 Peterbilt 359 started up after 8 years of sitting
My old Peterbilt had been sitting for 8 years. We thought we had better
fire it up before any more time went by, so we primed the fuel lines with
fuel and rounded up four old car batteries, gave the glow plugs 20 seconds
to warm things up - - - and she fired right up - - this is Part 1 - - first
firing after 8 years. It is a Cat 3406-A engine
Fire up - cold start of a Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer
Firing up my 1976 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer after two months having
stood in the garage... Note the flame after the backfire!
The procedure for a cold engine is as follows:
Twist the ingnition key to the first position. You will hear the clicking
of the fuel pumps as they start delivering fuel to the carburetors. After
approximately 15 to 20 seconds, pump the accellerator pedal to the floor
four or five times, squirting lots of fuel into the intakes. Then, while
holding the accellerator pedal about a third of the way down, twist the
ignition key to the start position. You will hear a deep, exiting,
expolding bark as the engine comes to life, accompanied by significant
quantities of smoke out of the Exhaust
tips, as the oil that hs been resting in the cylinders is burnt. If the
ambient temperture is cold and the car has not been driven for a while, the
engine may die, necessitating a repeat of the above-described prodecure.
Once started, the rpms should be kept at 2,000 until the smoke clears,
usually in about two to three minutes.
Out on the open road, at low to mid-throttle, the moaning and slurping
sound of the Webers is the dominant sensation. When the throttle is opened
wide, the result is a massive roar and a seamless delivery of power. The
smooth power delivery is deceptive as a glance at the speedometer usually
reveals speeds greater than expected. The sound of the engine when extended
is exciting and is similar to the sounds emanating from Jody Scheckter's
and Gilles Villeneuve's Formula One flat-12s!
