Nice find 'az'...!

The NY'ers came standard with a 413, while the Newports came with 361 standard or the 413 optional.
I've got the NewYorker version of this wagon actually...

And why do you have to replace those puffsacks in the car?
Doesn't it just drive without them now?

Ok  Boys. . .Here is some lessons I learned.



If you are using Hyperutectic pistons, you need to bevel the
bottom of the bores in the block.  This prevents the sharp edges from
scraping off the coating on the pistons.

Cylinderbores are always beveled. This helps the piston-rings enter the bores more easily when installing them. Without the bevel they might hang and break during assembly.

If you are going to a shorter duration higher lift cam, like I
did, .459 (I) .471 (E) Lift @ 1.5 Ratio, 192* (I) 204* (E) Duration,
You need to change the valve springs to dual spring.

Different types of cams require different types (strenghts) of valvesprings.

The use of Cleavite (Trimetal) for a street engine is the best way to go.

You mean 'stock' ;)

When porting the heads, like I did, you polish the exhaust ports
and leave the intakes rough.  Eliminate all the sharp edges in the
ports.

Well, you got the 'roughness' covered very well I see.
At first glance I thought you had just sandblasted a couple of very rusted cylinder heads.
Now get out the sandpaper grinding wheel and make the cylinder headchambers smooth and shiny.

firedome, low is good... 8)






Actually, my '57 has Wilwood brakes on front.
I wouldn't buy it myself as a kit because of the expense, but it was one of the reasons I actually bought the car.

No! :) My wallet can't keep up with the acreage all these cool cars take up overhere in my garage... Don't make me buy 'it' with an offer I can't refuse... ;)
Fins "Nr. 5" is a '59 2dr HT Dodge. And I really have to get rid of 1 or 2 cars already to still have some room to move left.
I did show it to a good friend of mine though. He 'should' be getting into some fins actually but he still has his hands full with 2 projects.

So, you're saying it actually should be "MoparFANS" then? ;)
I've got 4 pair of fins in my garage, one plucked chicken wagon, a C-body and a B-body '67 Charger.
I'm working on pair of fins "nr. 5".

I just posted a sort of 'tech' on how I put discs on my '62 Chrysler NewYorker Wagon.
Granted I had some parts to play with already from a previous disc-conversion, so this made things slightly easier for me.
I also was set of having 11.75" rotors, which I think are mandatory on a heavy wagon AND my drivingstyle ;) This does mean I have no choice but to mount 15" wheels.

General Tech / Check your tires

Checked my tires just before I left from work. I counted 4 of them and one in the trunk....  Is that a good thing, or bad?

You know, when the car was at the mercy of the paintshop for some 2 years, I had planned on having it painted a deep metallic Wine Red color. This would set off the chrome nicely on the car I thought. I had even made some simple photoshops with the car in this color.
But then the day arrived the car was ready for paint. The painter said they were going to order the paint today, and wanted me to confirm the color I had in mind.
So they handed me a huge paintsample-book and I dug in. But I didn't stop at the 'wine red' I had in mind. I went on looking at the other colors and when this Turquoise color showed up on one of the pages I changed my plan rightaway. The painter was stunned of this sudden turnover but ordered the paint that afternoon.

I don't think I made the wrong decission for one moment, even though I know the Wine Red I had in mind would've looked good aswell on the car.

The color is a 90's Chrysler color.
I could look up the paintcode if desired.
It's something like "Light Turquoise Blue" I recall.

Thanks Steve, I'd rather not you think of me as 'sweet' anyway... 

I wouldn't be too sure about 'not driving on salt' though.
We're pretty serious overhere when it comes to battling frosted roads ya know, spraying salt on the roads everywhere. And yesterday was no different then normal... ;)
