Ford Taunus 2.3 V6 GL
der Taunus wurde 2005 Restauriert, die Alu Felgen sind nicht mehr drauf da
ich auf der suche nach schicken kleineren Felgen bin.
Original war ein 2.0l V6 drinn.
Rost hatte war untypisch wenig vorhanden also mussten nur wenig
schweißarbeiten gemacht werden der innenraum ist bis auf den Grani
Drehzahlmesser und der Hutablage Original und in guten Zustand.
Der Maschienenraum wurde auslackiert und dieverse Chromteile verbaut.
Ist mein Baby und es wird immer irgendwas zu tun geben.

1967 Chrysler Newport First Start After Sitting For 20 Years
I went to check out this car because it was advertised as having a
"valuable 440" which I wanted to rebuild and put in my 73 Challenger. When
I got there I found out it was a 383 2 bbl car in incredible shape with
69990 original miles. It had belonged to his grandfather and was parked in
1990/1991 and never started since, nor was it ever registered in anyone
else's name, so I am technically the second owner. It wasn't what I came
for but I had to take it home.
This is a video diary of getting this great old girl running and will
probably only be enjoyed by true car enthusiasts.
November 28, 2012 Update: I haven't been here in quite a while and at
first I was a bit dismayed that there are so many lonely aholes in our
world and how they tend to flock to the internet. I considered pulling the
video but realized there are many people who enjoyed it and that is who I
posted it for.
To all of those experts who know so much more than the rest of us please
keep your negative comments to yourself.
To those of you who say I should have done more before trying to start, I
- The previous owner had pulled the car out of the field with a tractor and
his buddy "may have" put the car in gear to slow it down. If the rings
were rusted the engine could have been destroyed by that action alone,
there was some resistance when I turned the crank pulley over by hand and I
was surprised it turned over that easily, but with the engine sitting that
long the rings would not be sealing to build up pressure in the cylinders.
Therefore I concluded that there was no rusting/seizing so no risk of
cylinder wall damage, or that the engine was possibly toast due to
- The oil was not milky, still "felt" oily and I only planned on running
the engine 2-3 minutes to get it off the trailer and onto my hoist to do
all the fluids, so I determined it had enough viscosity left to protect it
for a short period of time.
- Even an old fuel filter will stop any major contaminants from reaching
the carb. So why spend a bunch of money, with the steps I took the chance
of me causing any damage at all was miniscule.
For those who were so concerned about our safety, come on. We grew up on a
farm before the days of fuel injection and many farm vehicles do not get
regularly started so this is a very common practice. The risk is MINIMAL
and calculated, note that there is a fire extinguisher at 8:43 in the lower
left corner on the trailer. The jerry can is very full by design, gas
liquid does not ignite but the vapours do, note that when the gas starts to
come out of the spigot that the top of the jerry can is full of gas, not
fumes! I don't believe at any time was my brothers face over the carb,
these big old girls are so big you pretty well have to stand in the engine
compartment to do that. We did our best to slowly feed the engine as
little gas as possible to avoid flooding the engine and possibly causing
her to backfire.
Anyways, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to defend myself against a
bunch of morons who obviously have nothing better to do with their time
than to creep youtube videos so they can leave moronic comments that allow
them to feel all high and mighty ... but at least it might stop a few from
wasting our time as we try to enjoy videos of common interest.
Thanks to all for the positive comments and feedback.
