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!
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...
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 15: 1941 Dodge Luxury Liner! Part 2 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to get this old Dodge going for the first time in
34 years! It has been parked in a container since my friend Mark bought it
from his grandfather's estate in the late 70's. It doesn't run, and needs a
pretty comprehensive mechanical overhaul, including the brakes, fuel,
electrical, and cooling systems, and the valvetrain.
The plan is to get this car plated again and use it for a fun summer
driver. We are not going to touch the body or interior of the car, just the
mechanical stuff. The interior is all original, and the body is totally
solid, if a little dinged up in a couple spots...
We did have to disassemble the doors to repair all of the window
regulators, which had broken and seized up.
Thanks so much to Mark for inviting me to participate in this project and
allowing me to film much of it for my channel here on YouTube. We had a lot
of fun getting this old Luxury Liner going, I hope you enjoy checking out
the video, and feel free to share it with your friends if you like this
kind of thing! Cheers, and thanks again to everyone for commenting and
Will it Run? Episode 13: 1966 Dodge A100 Boogie Van!
Well, this time it's a real treat to try to get this old boogie van
running again with Agents 533 and 100013...
The old slant six tossed a rod many years ago, and Agent 100013 scrounged
up a 360 V8 to throw in there. He had to find a rare V8 van-style automatic
to make the swap come together, but other than some screwing around with
the motor mounts, it wasn't too bad.
Still lots to do, but maybe we can get it moving first!
Will it Run? Episode 16: 1958 Chevy Delray! Part 2 of 3
We're back, and this time we've scored this decrepit old Delray to save
it from the scrapheap! It has been parked for over 25 years and has clearly
seen better days. We're not gonna plate this one, but it needs some tidying
up just to be presentable. Someone sanded a lot of the paint off many years
ago, so I think we should try to touch it up a bit just for fun.
This old Chevy bottom-feeder still has its original 235-inch inline 6
banger; a very reliable old unit in the day. She wasn't seized up, so I
figured it wouldn't take much to get it running again. Of course, she'd
look a lot better with some cool old rims and tires from the CWMC used-tire
Well, thanks for tuning in; I hope you enjoy a little goofing around on
this sweet old Delray... the budget has been set at zero, of course, so
let's get to work!
Cheers from us here at CWMC Headquarters!
Will it Run? Episode 7: 1964 Rambler 660 "Cross Country" Station Wagon
Cold War Motors just picked up this tidy 1964 Rambler 660 Wagon. It's got
the 196 c.i. ohv 6 cylinder engine and a 1 barrel carb. It's a 3 speed auto
with manual steering and brakes. Let's get it to go! The fuel pump was
shot from sitting so long, but otherwise the Rambler was complete. I think
the car has been off the road since the early 80's, judging by the bias
tires and old registrations. As per viewer requests, no more music! Thanks
for checking it out!
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.
1962 Dodge Polara hardtop
I said 1963 in the video..please ignore that! It is a 1962, and a
beautiful restoration of a car whose fortunes at introduction were not the
best. It was under-appreciated at the time..but I think examination now
proves that this car is really a classic. Perfect car, in my opinion!
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
GTX barn find does 150 foot rubber
Got the car for $800 bucks. threw in a new battery and fired it up. Had no
idea there was only 2,000 miles on a REAL vintage Keith Black rebuild under
the hood. we were pretty damn surprised.
burned out spark plug wire causing the miss.
