General Mopar Discussions / Christine clones less expensive?
« on: October 03, 2008, 07:06:19 AM »
Just wondering if anyone is up to speed on this topic. Would one that is interested in buying  a 57/58 Plymouth expect to pay less for a Christine clone than say a restored to original 57/58 Belvedere? I do not believe the value guides can help on this...Am I correct? I know the restored to original Belvederes are a real quick sale in the low 20's with most starting price tags in the mid-high 20k range. I just came up with this thought because a Christine clone came up on e-bay...has a 383..says its an 18 yr. old restored clone...Here's the link:

General Mopar Discussions / 1957 Dodge D500 2 door sedan
« on: September 23, 2008, 05:57:30 AM »
Hey guys, There's a guy in my area that claims he has one of these...and that it's the real deal... He bought it at an local estate auction. Are these rare? I would think most of the D500 cars were hardtops. Any body have production totals for 1957 Dodge? He says it's all original right down to the paint/interior/chrome...the dual quads everything. He's planning to resell...I'd like to be ready and up to speed on the details before he does...Thanks, Bob

General Tech / Stuck (closed) heat riser valve??
« on: September 01, 2008, 04:04:34 PM »
Hi Guys....I just finshed cleaning/painting/reinstalling my intake manifold on my 70 Fury III 318. The crossover exhaust passageway was completely plugged up with carbon. I painted the intake manifold with POR-15 engine enamel! After my FIRST start/run of the motor, I noticed the fresh paint is burning already right above where the passageway is on both sides...ALSO....I painted the exhaust manifolds with HIGH HEAT paint while I is was in there....I noticed on the passenger side (with the heat riser valve) the paint is already flaking off....I can't believe it!! Is it possible the heat riser valve is stuck/rusted in the closed position? Do I have to remove the exhaust manifold to check this?? Check out the photos...Why is it...when you think you're done....you're not? click on photos below to enlarge.
