"Will it Run?" Special: 1967 AMC Ambassador DPL! Week1
We're back! This time we're getting started on our 1967 AMC Ambassador DPL hardtop. First thing is to try to get it started, as I've not actually heard it run, and we need to move it inside so I can get started on all the work it needs to go on the road this summer. The 343 4 barrel also needs the water pump done and a few other things, and we'll be going through all of the other mechanical systems to make sure she is roadworthy. A really interesting car, and I've not seen another one around here. Just going to have a look at the starter this week and move the car inside so we can get at it. As I write this, I have several more episodes filmed and just trying to find the time to edit everything, including a few bits I shot featuring some work we did for friends... Not to worry, I won't start making you watch vids of me fixing scratched bumpers on minivans; only interesting / old cars are going to get featured here! Thanks again to everyone who watches / subscribed / commented on our channel. I am getting ready to do a lot of fun videos this summer; I think you'll like whats coming. Also: sorry it takes so long to get these done; I'm really going to try to get more vids up more often. Cheers and all the best from me and Stella and all of the other Agents here!
Will it Run? Episode 19: 1957 Plymouth Plaza! Part 1 of 3
Hey, we're back! Welcome back to our show about buying junk cars and getting them to run just for the hell of it. The budget is zero, as usual, and the cars just keep getting worse, haha. This time we dug up a 1957 Plymouth Plaza 4 door sedan out of a local junkyard and thought we'd see what it would take to get it going for a drive around the yard. This beauty was scrapped in about 1968 after someone presumably couldn't get it to go anymore. It is in terrible condition, but almost everything is just the way it was when it was shut off way back when Nixon took office and the Stones released "Sympathy for the Devil". There were even parking tickets in the glove box and gum wrappers in the ashtray! Well, let's see if we can get it to putt around again; she's definitely seen way better days, but maybe it'll come back to life to take Stella for a ride! Thanks again to everyone for watching and subscribing! Cheers from all the Agents here at CWMC! Well, we kinda blew the budget again... A timing chain and plugs pushed the repair bill close to a hundred bucks! Damn! PS: Mr. Lee Perreault, your parking ticket is 47 years overdue...
Stella's Saturday Special: Fire up the 1961 Plymouth Belvedere!
Hi! This time I thought we'd fire up the ol' Belvedere. Several people asked for a look at this car, so here we go. I pulled it out of the barn and stuck a battery in it and she started up right away. I parked this car about 12 years ago, and the gas is getting pretty stale, haha. Nevertheless, we did manage to drive around the yard for a bit. This car has it's original 225 slant six engine and its still quite serviceable. A fun dashboard straight from the rocket-cars-from-outer-space school of design. Ditto the exterior; Virgil Exner was really reaching for the stars with these last of his forward look series, and some regard this model as having been the styling equivalent of "a bridge too far"... I am a big fan of these cars; almost none were saved so you don't see them very often. I hope you enjoy a short look at this fun old Plymouth. Thanks again to everyone for subscribing, and for your comments on the cars! Cheers from me and Stella.
Will it Run? Episode 10: 1969 Dodge Dart 270
Hi! Time to try starting this old Dart; it's been sitting around, and why not get it to go one more time before it is sacrificed for parts to save a very rare Dart GTS 440!
