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!
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!
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!
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!

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!
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 1 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
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
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...
1971 Chrysler Newport 383 Idling...
Hi! This time we're going to have a little look at this awesome 1971
Newport owned and maintained by my friend Agent 7678. This is a beautiful
original 4 door hardtop with only one prior owner. It has only 35000 miles
on it and has just had the original hi-po 383 overhauled and a comp 268 cam
installed among other minor modifications. The car is a treat to look at or
drive, and Agent 7678 wouldn't trade it for a dozen Challengers and
Barracudas! Hope you like the sound of a big-block Chrysler through
Flowmaster 40s! Join us for a listen to this mean old 'Port...
By Request: Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler!
Hi! Time to put the '72 'Port away for winter. It's been sitting outside
for months; will it start? It's snowed in pretty good...
This old Chrysler has been a pretty good car for the last 10+ years. It's
a low-end 4 door hardtop with very few options. Never gives any trouble and
holds lots of friends!
A 400 c.i. 2 barrel with a 727 Torqueflite auto. Nothing special, but a
fun car from the age of dinosaurs...
Thanks everyone for watching this stuff, and for subscribing!
Cheers from Canada.
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!
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...
