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 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 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 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.
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...
1957 Dodge Regent Hardtop Coupe
Hi! Cold War Motors just picked up this sweet 1957 Dodge Regent coupe. Its
pretty rough, to say the very least, but I have most of the parts to
restore it, if I want to. I more or less bought it to get the door I need
for my 58 Plymouth, but I think it could be saved, with enough time and
money thrown at it. Theres no drivetrain in it, but it looks like it was a
six cylinder, 2 speed auto originally. Anyways, I thought some of you might
dig it, as these are pretty rare units...
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 idiotic "cash for clunkers" stupidity. 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!
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
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!
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 1960 Ford F250: Old farm truck parked in 1976!
Hi! This old Ford is the the Cold War Motors shop truck. I found this truck
under a collapsed barn when I bought my house. It had been parked in 1976,
and it started up with just some fresh gas and a new battery! There is a
big dent in the roof from the building falling on it, but otherwise its
pretty decent. It shows 42000 miles on the 223 six. Everything is how I
found it; same tires, old farmer paint job, even the old first aid kit is
still in the glove box. A genuine barn find, I suppose. I'll probably fix
the steering and brakes enough to get it roadworthy, but I dont want to
restore it just yet!
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.
