Building A 440 Six Pack [S2 Ep.5-3]
When it comes to classic hot-rod components, nothing gets people going like
a multi-carb setup. And the king amount these is the Tri-power. Long
admired for their stellar performance and macho attitude, the tri-power has
become a hard thing to find. So why find one? Why not build your own? Today
on GEARZ, Stacey walks you through the process of building your own
tri-power out of old derelict parts. After that, Stacey pulls out the big
Mopar guns and shows what it takes to put together a six-pack. If
multi-carbs are your deal... you?re gonna love this show! Then Stacey gets
down and dirty and shows you how to build some simple, ultra strong axle
dollys by using some old scrap metal like the kind laying around YOUR
garage. Who said gearheads aren't into recycling?
1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.

133063 / 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d6ytvc2
RK Motors Charlotte presents this as THE FINEST restored Hemi '67 GTX on
the planet. It was a 1st place winner in the invitation only Classic
American Performance class at the 2009 Glenmoor Gathering of Significant
Cars and was a nearly impossible to find original paint survivor Hemi car
with its original fender tag and broadcast sheet.
Tim Wilhelm and our restoration crew first documented the car before
carefully taking the car apart, labeling and bagging every nut, bolt and
screw. After chemically stripping the entire car, Tim and company took the
gracefully aged body to task. Before, during and after photos reveal the
extremely minimal work needed to patch the bottoms of the quarters and one
rocker - NO other sheet metal was cut out, including the perfect trunk
floor. After weeks of sanding, primer went down and slowly, as the panels
received more and more attention, the body was ready to paint. DuPont
Chromapremier paint was chosen, and the carefully matched WW1 white was
laid down. Layers of clearcoat were added and wet sanded and buffed to its
current condition. Every piece of exterior trim is original with the
exception of the antenna and base, the windows, rocker and wheel lip
moldings, lock set, marker light lenses, fender turn signals, and the
taillights and bezels. We replaced the 1977 aftermarket wheels with
1967-only wheels which are fully restored and carry a spring date code. The
'67-specific hubcaps are outstanding originals which were fully restored.
We sent the motor to noted Hemi expert Larry Shepard for a full-on,
no-expense-spared concours restoration. Not far into the engine's
disassembly, Larry gave us a call and told us not only was our Hemi a clean
one, it was a factory Super Stock piece! The fender tag shows this car was
scheduled for build on June 28, 1967, making it most likely the very last
'67 Hemi X built. Shepard's went through the engine leaving no part
untouched and creating one of the finest detailed Hemis on the planet. Then
we restored the engine compartment using original and correct pieces all
the way down to the screws that secure the fender tag... Literally days
were spent researching the correct finishes on parts through examination of
original parts, other GTX's and phone calls to experts such as Frank
Badalson and Dave Wise.
The sheet metal underneath was treated to the same care as the top, and
sports a fresh coat of white paint. While this was originally an
undercoated car we elected to paint the car white everywhere. It would
take very little effort to apply the coating if you wish. The chassis and
suspension under the car was carefully researched, restored and
re-assembled with every piece being exact to factory appearance and
After we disassembled the interior, we sent all of the chrome trim and
pieces for a show quality restoration. Then the gauge cluster went to Auto
Instruments, a sample of the original headliner went to SMS Auto Fabrics
and the seat belts went to SSnake Oyl Products. New Legendary upholstery
and door panels were ordered along with new window cranks and armrest bases
from Van's Auto and a new center console, top plates and shift knob from
BE/A. Auto Custom Carpet supplied both the rug and the logo floor mats and
Mega Parts provided various small parts including the firewall insulation,
the glove box liner and the sill plates. The dashboard and steering column
were completely torn down, media blasted, cleaned and sent over to the body
shop for paint along with the kick panels, center console, rear seat crown,
dash pad, speaker grille, steering wheel center cap and steering column
trim. The original armrest pads, door jamb windlace, seat backs and side
panels were refinished in the proper P6K code copper dye. Finally, we
installed the freshly restored wood grain wheel from Gary's Steering Wheels
along with an original center cap from Mitchell Motor Parts.
This car is here to show we can build no-excuses, no B.S. show car, which
few in the world can rival. Incredibly documented, long term ownership,
numbers matching, original sheet metal, award-winning and near flawless in

Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...

Will it Run? Episode Nine: 1962 Plymouth Belvedere
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this horrible 1962 Plymouth; can we get it
to move again? It had been completely disassembled and left outside for
many years. The engine is seized, and the budget for repairs is zero, as
usual. Some unique problems, with it being a push button automatic, and
trying to jam in a later- model engine...
Its a bit longer than my other vids, I hope you like it! No more music,
as per viewer requests.

133081 / 1964 Plymouth Belvedere
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9qkc8ex
Listed in Darrell Davis' book of original Max Wedge serial numbers, this
car is one of only fourteen 426/4-speed Belvederes produced for the 1964
model year. If you're looking for a no-nonsense pavement pounder that's
fast, raw and ready to brawl, you've found your next heavyweight!
An extension of legendary designer Elwood Engel's modernist rescue of
Plymouth's increasingly eccentric product line, the firm's newly downsized
B-Body did almost as well on Chrysler's sale charts as it did on America's
drag strips and super speedways. This particular Belvedere, a Stage III Max
Wedge car sold new at Powell Plymouth in Jacksonville, Florida, was likely
ordered by an aspiring racer who whipped a few people on the street and
then settled into a life in the slow lane. Unlike the majority of these
badass Mayflower warriors, which were purchased almost exclusively for
sanctioned drag racing, this car has never had its front inner aprons cut
for Exhaust headers, never had a roll
cage installed, and never had its rear wheel wells tubbed for oversize drag
slicks. In fact, when this Plymouth's true heritage was discovered in the
late 1990s, the car had been mechanically and cosmetically transformed into
an all-steel, 90,000 mile slushbox special. Naturally its enlightened
savior knew he had something special, so he began a frame-off restoration
by welding in new floorpans from a clean donor car and hanging new quarters
from a high quality aftermarket supplier. Next, when a trademark aluminum
front end was finally located, it was re-skinned, thoroughly worked, and
perfectly aligned with its new body. And finally, after much parts research
and even more parts searching, a wet-looking coat of correct Chrysler code
P Ruby Red paint was buried in a thick clearcoat shell that shines like a
trophy on race day!
Gently lift this Plymouth's Ruby Red hood and you'll find an date-correct
Max Wedge V8 that wears an authentic 2406730-1 casting number, a December
(12) 10th (10) of 1963 (03) date stamp, and a 1964 V-series (V) Maximum
Performance (MP) High Compression (HC) 426 cubic inch (426) engine stamp.
Pushing a brutal 12.5 to 1 compression, and currently Dyno-ed at 486 horsepower and 469 lb./ft.
of torque, this Mopar monster has built a hard-fought reputation for being
one of the best competition motors ever created.
That high powered big block churns torque through a tough A833 4-speed
manual transmission to an original, factory-narrowed 8.75 rear end. During
the restoration that transmission, which is a correct piece that's dated
slightly after the car was assembled, received new bearings, new synchros,
a new clutch and pressure plate and a correct cast steel bellhousing. And
that rear end, which rides below original factory frame weights, was fitted
with a new Sure Grip differential and tall 4.10 gears. At the ends of that
stellar drivetrain, an original torsion bar front and leaf spring rear
suspension, which has been completely rebuilt from top to bottom, helps
increase both drivability and track times. At the sides of that stellar
drivetrain, original Max Wedge Exhaust
pipes whisk spent gases to either manual dumps or factory replacement turbo mufflers. And all this first rate
hardware proudly stands on a set of 14 inch body-matched steel wheels which
spin fresh 205/75 Hurst radials and 215/75 Hurst cheater slicks around
pristine stainless center caps.
Take a look inside the car and you'll find a spacious and airy environment
which has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort. Top dead center
is a pair of red bench seats that are lined with new padding, stitched with
NOS covers and accented by bright stainless trim. Below those seats, new
black carpet does an excellent job of highlighting the car's original, and
re-chromed, Hurst shifter. In front of those seats, a two-tone dash hangs a
silver '49 Plymouth-inspired instrument panel next to original radio and
heater deletes. And in front of the driver, a restored steering wheel spins
a red rim around a pristine chrome horn ring.
This aluminum-nosed Belvedere is a super cool piece of muscle car history
that's easy to imagine as the focal point of a sunny 60s track day. Call,
