Compression check great and no bent intake valve Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cant drive it
  10. May I present a beautifully restored 1949 Chrysler Royal Woodie , probably one of 4 or 5 existing out of 850 made in the world according to antique automobile forums. This woodie automobile has a 251 spitfire, 6 cylinder engine naturally aspirated by a carter one barrel carb resulting in 116 horsepower. All brand new tires have been installed are Coker, 3+1/4 inch radial, a new brake master cylinder and brake cylinders on all wheels, new front floor boards 16 gauge steel and rebuilt tranny tunnel. . The transmission is a fluidmatic which can run partially without a clutch, and has the shift on the column - hi low reverse- . This car is a one owner besides me (the restorer) , has mostly new white ash wood installed- unstained but left for the new buyer to select the color of their choice. The car requires a few small finishing details that are being completed. I have worked on this car almost 4 years, rebuilt motor , wood, new interior, new wood inside panels and roof. I am still looking for half of the rear bumper, difficult to find, and if you find or buy it I will make an adjustment on the price. If you google 1949 Chrysler royal wagon for sale you will see that they sell for $179,000.00 or more. I am not asking anywhere near this price although I have put in 4 years of work and parts and rebuilding on this car. This is a great buy and an even better investment so bid!!!! * Spitfire 251 cc engine * One previous owner * 8 passenger station wagon * 850 made in 1949 maybe 4 or 5 in existence * Fluidmatic transmission * New glass windows except one with inspection sticker on it from 1972 *new front metal floor boards *mostly new white ash wood * wooden head liner * Freshly painted * hand made rear wheel wells *mostly new wiring replacing old cloth wire *new rings pistons valves valve spring points rotor valve clips plus more *new interior red and white seats * rebuilt radio * new points and condenser and plug wires and spark plugs *new bulbs in interior and panel lights * structural steel at drivers and passenger door at bottom *rebuilt starter and voltage regulator and generator from ace armature *resanded and restained mahogany trim around doors and door panels. * marine mahogany panels *rebuilt carter bb carb *4 brand new coker wide whitewall tires 3+1/8 inch *dependable electric fuel pump *extra set of hub caps *electrical labeled and rewired *need 1/2 of rear bumper some chrome trim fender still looking for them * wood is not stained or varnished to accommodate buyer's choice * brand new rear wheel wells fabricated by Robert's custom metal over $3,000. * marine mahogany door panels * priced to go way less then the $179,000.00 other one for sale. *you will love riding down the street or going to a car show in this beauty!!! * some rare chrome on this car -rear fender chrome over $600 Make me a reasonable offer Heming's $120,000 house of carz $180,000 mine will go a lot less need to sell
