I better not show the engine-hoist I've got or there will be some more killing I'm afraid...

The original color is a lighter shade of green, still visible in the first enginebay picture.
The current paintjob on the car is pretty sad. A lot of tiny pinsized bubbles and numerous scratches and issues.
I have some custom plans for the car but I'll start with the roof first. It will be an early '60s style custom paintjob with Metalflake, panelling and probably a lace-job on the roof.
I'm not sure yet what or how to do the body of the car. I have a difficult time spending a lto of money on a shiney layer of paint on a car which I want to use daily when possible.

Here are some 'custom' items I've already bought for the car;

The engine was seized up on a rod-bearing.
I knew this upfront, but had hopes the damage wouldn't be too dramatic, but it was not to be.
The crank was scored up real bad.

All my Chryslers ('60NY, '62NY, '64NY, '65-300) had seatbelts.

Let me also put some of my projects here in this forum.
Here's my '60 Chrysler NewYorker...




Bought the car in SC in '06. Had it shipped to the Netherlands early this year.
Now I'm preparing the car for it's first DMV-checkup, so I'm replacing all the rubbers under the car and making things neat again.

Pics speak louder than words... So here we go...


The car still in SouthCarolina, as bought from this picture;



Delivery in The Netherlands;









Got straight to work and removed the stuck engine;



The engine turned out more work than hoped for, so I put it aside for later worries.



Shot of the axle-area;



Swapped in a rear-axle from a '72 GTX. No more hard to remove drums.
Cleaned up the GTX-axle and mounting hardware;







Removed tank and undercoating there, and further down the car and replaced it with fresh undercoating...







Engine-bay disaster area and cleanup in aisle #1;





Front-suspension parts:


Cleaned up;







New lower-Ball joints;


Selfmade Balljoint-tool;


Modified Poly-strutrod bushings from a B-body;

I could start all the discussions I can, but why would 'youse guys' take my Dutch word for it..

Speaking of pumping out Hemi's... What about the differences between the early 392's and the new 392's.... ?

"Ze Germans" have drained Chrysler for all it was worth and now they've sold the remains back into US-hands.
According to the CEO of Chrysler in the Nerherlands this is the best thing that could happen to Chrysler because now there's enough 'money' available again to get Chrysler ready again 'for the next 100-years'


Anyway... "we" are going slightly offtopic here I guess...

There was a time the repro blocks were unavailable and had long waiting lists just to get one.[/QUOTE]

Those times still haven't changed one bit I can tell you.
A friend of mine tried ordering a Hemi for a customer of his through MoparPerformance but got the Nationwide BackOrder-waitinglist reply instead. He would have to wait at least a year before it even became clear if he was to get a Hemi at all.
The customer coughed up some extra dough and they're going for a KB or Indy-hemi now, can't remember which.

I'm currently building a 392 Hemi to be placed in my '62 Chrysler-wagon.
That same wagon also hauled it home from across the country (= here 200 miles)

Propane costs about 1/3 of gasoline  in the Netherlands
And with 1.40 Euro per liter what this "parts-degreaser" costs overhere, it adds up pretty fast!
