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.
Thanks everyone for watching, commenting, and subscribing! More to come!
Found in a Field: 1958 Dodge Mayfair Hardtop!
Cold War Motors just dragged this sweet 1958 Dodge home from out in the
country where it had been lying abandoned for many years. It is a very rare
piece, with only about 3000 ever made, including all body styles. These
Canadian "Plodges" used Plymouth bodies and interiors with Dodge front ends
and were manufactured in Canada through 1959. The Mayfair is the
top-of-the-line model, and is the equivalent to the Plymouth Belvedere.
This one has a 313 Poly-head V8 and power steering. Cold War Motors is
going to restore this car as soon as a couple of other projects are
Will it Run? Episode 4: 1957 Dodge Regent
Got a 57 Dodge out of a field. Parked for over 40 years! Can we get her to
go under her own power? Its a 230 c.i. 6 and a 3-on-the-tree. Latest in the
series about just getting old stuff to run, for no really good reason. The
1957 Dodge Regent was a Canadian model, roughly equivalent to the Plymouth
Savoy. I like all these Exner-era Chryslers. Lots more to come!
Will it Run? Episode 8: 1971 Skiroule SS 300
This old Coleman has been sitting around a while, and needs some TLC to get
it going again. We have a matching pair of these babies, donated by
friends. I like the noise these 1 lungers make, and you don't see them
every day. This machine is pretty fun to ride as long as you don't do
anything stupid like trying to turn or stop. I guess I just like the smell
of blue Exhaust. mmmm...
Will it Run? Episode 5: Trade-in Time for the 1966 Fury!
Time to make some room! This 1966 Plymouth Fury is finding a new home. It's
a former "Will it Run?" car, has it got one more run in it? The 225 slant
six / 904 automatic - powered Fury II 4-door sedan sat in a field since
1980, and after a little rehab, was running nicely, if a little blue.
Can't save'm all though, so off she goes...
Will it Run? Episode 3: Things to do with Used Cars
Smashing up a bunch of cars in a field. Some sweet jumps and crashes near
the end. Watch for the General Lee Neon , the #43 Petty Intrepid Superbird,
and the Messershmidt 109 Mercury Topaz. A great way to spend the day, for
sure. Lots more smash-up derby racing to come! Music: Beethoven's 9th.
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!
1957 Studebaker Champion Saved From the Crusher! Amazing Edsel Prototype Found!
Hi! Today we're off to bring back a 1957 Studebaker Champion 4-door sedan
that was going to be scrapped if no one gave it a home. It's a pretty
complete car, and I was happy to add it to the Cold War Motors collection.
Join us as we load up the old Stude and have a look at some other rare
cars, including an amazing pre-production Edsel serial # 100016!
Will it Run? Episode 6: 1958 Plymouth Savoy
Time to get the 58 Plymouth Savoy up and running! I put it on a good frame
and changed it to a standard shift. Still a long way to go, but a huge
improvement on the piece of junk I brought home last winter. It's now a 230
c.i. flathead 6 with a 3-on-the-tree. Hope you like it like I do! Thanks
for checking it out!
Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part 2 of 2)
In part 2 of this new full-length episode, we get the old Chev home and
start seeing if, in fact, it will run. Is it even possible that we might
get it to move under its own power for the first time in 45 years? Do we
have some sweet rims for this one? Tune in for more thoughtful, insightful
contemplation on these important issues.
1951 Kaiser Saved from the Crusher!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this great old Kaiser so it wouldn't get
flattened and made into Kia Rondos. Its the low-end "Special" model with a
Continental flat head 6 cylinder engine and a 3 speed column shift. CWM is
a sucker for original paint and this metallic brown beauty is no exception.
I have wanted one of these Darrin-styled 1951-1954 Kaisers since I was a
kid, and was really happy when this one came along and I was able to save
it. Its a very restoreable car, with a good chassis and minimal rust. The
hood badge was missing, but I've got one on the way, courtesy of Ebay. The
engine is stuck, and the interior is rough but complete down to the radio
delete panel. I might not get around to restoring this one right away, but
meanwhile it looks great in the barn next to the Hudsons and the 50
Plymouth. Hope you enjoy a couple of minutes of looking at this great old
1956 Plymouth Savoy In The Snow
This is my 56 Plymouth that I bought to fix up and sell, but in the
meantime I like to have fun with it. It has the old flathead 6 and the
manual three speed tranny on the column. Pretty amazing that this thing
starts right up and drives around even when its 15 degrees out. A lot of
Morons like to make comments about this video since I DRIVE it, in the
video. Maybe you can troll a video thats actually stupid.
1952 Hudson Saved from the Crusher!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this sweet old Hudson Pacemaker to stop it
from being turned into more Camrys. Its not exactly mint, but I just love
the patina on this original paint car. Maybe we'll try to get it roadworthy
and just drive it the way it is. It'll need the interior redone, and the
engine is gone, but its fairly solid and complete. I hope you like it!
Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
1962 Plymouth Savoy E85 S400 Turbo Small Block Mopar Dyno 472HP
This is my low budget throw together turbo project. Iron headed 360, S475 turbo, blow through non intercooled E85, 224@.050"
Converter never really locked up because we started the pull too low in the
RPM (flashed to 5200 and stayed there!). It was slipping 18%. This was
at 13psi, 16 degrees total timing. Made 472hp at the tire at 5400RPM.
