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...
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!
1953 Packard Saved From the Crusher!
Hi! This time we're going to give this old Packard Clipper a home so it
doesn't get melted down and made into 7 or 8 Yarii. This old girl has seen
way better days, but I wanted one for the CWMC used-car lot to class the
place up a bit. Thanks for joining us as we take a little look around this
straight-8-powered beauty. It's equipped with the Ultramatic transmission,
Packard's own automatic. No power steering in this one, though! This car
was originally a light grey with a black top and grey interior. At some
point it seems like it was repaired after an accident on the left front
corner and repainted this green with a white top.
I'm not sure what to do with this Packard, but I just wanted it anyway.
Maybe we'll try sometime to get it going again? Let us know what you think.
Thanks for watching this stuff; I enjoy sharing these junkyard gems with
you. Please subscribe to the coldwarmotors channel if you like this kind of
Cheers from me and Stella.
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!
Cold Start Challenge! Dec.'14
Hi! Time for some more cold start attempts on a cold day in Canada! This
time we're going to try the 1951 Mercury pickup, a 1950 Massey-Harris 44, a
1979 Ford F250, a 1965 Mustang, and even a 1966 Chevrolet
C30! Most of these rigs hadn't been run in months, so success was far from
certain... I was just hoping anything would start so I could go back inside
and warm up!
Thanks a lot to Agent 223 for sharing his cool collection with us!
Cheers from CWMC!
Please subscribe if you like this kind of thing! T-shirts and dealership
decals coming soon!
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!
Redneck Car Show! Sept 2011
Hi! My friend Agent 1080 hosted the second annual Redneck Car Show at the
Lean Burn Technologies compound. A great opportunity to show off all of our
beaters and rusty yard decorations! Lots of shabby Mopars, as usual, and a
few others as well. This year, the coveted "Western Canada's Worst Car"
trophy went to Agent 1080 for his nasty 1980 Dodge Aspen. Cold War Motors
was well represented at the show, and brought a surprise entry...
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
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 17: 1964 Meteor! Part 3 of 3
Hi! This time my friend Agent 223 has acquired a barn-find 1964 Meteor 4
door sedan! It's in nice original condition, but it hasn't been started in
over 30 years! Let's have a look at this Canadian-made car (a mix of Ford
and Mercury components) and try to get it to run again! No bodywork to do
this time, this car is still in its original paint and is a real survivor!
I hope you enjoy a look and listen to this sweet old six-banger Ford; not
many of these low-end models remain today. Thanks everyone for watching and
subscribing; I have several more episodes on the way!
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!
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!
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.
