  • 1930 Plymouth U in SoCAL

    Gonna keep this up to date as possible, since there aren't very many resources for odd-ball Plymouth/Dodge rods.

    Here's what I started with in the summer of 2018:

    Mopar looks to be in excellent condition! Probably an older resto. Not sure how to post pics through KB so I just use Imgur. It's a photo hosting service. Register with them. It's free and you can post full size pics.
    Here's my roadster as an example...…

      I'm excited to see your build!
      Pics can only be uploaded through the desktop version of this site.
      It's small with a phone but its doable... it's how I do it.
      There is a much needed update to this site hopefully very soon.

      Thanks for sharing!
      What's your plans??

          Thanks for the welcome, and yeah, I agree, the badge is one of my favorite parts...lol!

          As for my plans, here's the basic rundown:

          Specs
          1930 Plymouth 4-door sedan - stock frame/body/front axle/rear axle.
          Engine: 67 283 V8 chevy small block
          Trans: Turbo 350 (TH350) from a C10
          Rear axle: Chrysler 8.25" from a XJ Cherokee (open diff with 3.55's)
          Front axle: stock
          Steering: stock (for now)

          Other stuff I have:
          Butch's cool stuff SBC engine install kit for Chevy engines
          Scare-bird disk brake conversion for '30 Plymouth cars
          Hurst Pro-matic 2 gated shifter


          Plans:

          1. Enjoy the build - I'll post up in the 1930's section.
          2. Involve the kiddo's as much as possible. (my middle kid rebuilt the Rochester carb with me)
          3. make it safe,
          4. zero worries if it's ugly for a while or forever
          5. consider a channel and a chop down the line. (outside of my comfort zone currently)
          6. Currently mulling full fenders or fender-less.
          7. will probably need a custom shaft, but I might give building myself one a go.

            Here's some pics of the 283 right after i picked it up and started tearing it down to inspect general condition. Very clean overall. all cylinders looked clean, and it has .030 over pistons in it, so definitely got some meat left in the block. My dad and I fired it up a couple months ago, and it purrs with about 30-40psi of oil pressure at idle.

                  Bit of sheetmetal work by yours truly. Just a novice winging it with basic tools and scrap, free metal.

                    Rewinding back a bit, sorry. Here is the subfloor i built to replace the bubba’d crappy wood floor that the car came with. Going to give the bottom a nice coat of bedliner to keep rust and heat at bay, and then i’m going to bolt it in place.
