No I have a transmission and rear end for the car. I am only missing the engine and possibly the clutch.

HI Eddie,This was a engine that was rebuilt many years ago by a pro builder and was in my 38 Plymouth.I got hold of the running gear for a 39 that a friend had and was building a street rod.I rebuilt that engine and swapped with the one in my car.The engine ran fine,I just wanted to have two good ones for a spare.I later traded the car for something else and sold some of the parts that I still had.The engine has been sitting for some years in my garage.Send me your e mail and I will foward some pics.It is not complete but nothing you would'nt be able to find.Best regards,Marc

Grandpa, I think I might know you , I have a question on the engin, transmiswsion you have for the 38 plymouth. I am buying a 36 chrysler that the current owner took off the overdrive and and the car does not run , I believe the engine is in solid shape but unknown at this time. I was wondering if the engine and transmission would work as a replacement in the 36 chrysler 4 door humpback? If so I might buy the whole drive you have, Please call me at 919 607 2388 to discuss. Dave

wait a minute I asked about the engine first. I'm working on the logistics of getting the engine to california. Are you seriously going to turn around and sell it to someone else?
