  1. New in the box, old stock. i think they probably are for jeeps, judging by the color. Might work for other projects? 3 Willys, One Ford. Make an offer, you also get the shipping bill, but only the cost.
  2. Hi Jan, The engine turns freely. Not by hand but with just a little help. Unfortunately I can't add the video here of me turning it.
  3. It looks like the right dashboard as well, and maybe the floorboard... Less sure about the floorboard. The engine in that car is considerably different, maybe the coil is adapted and some other things as well, but not sure about the distributor moving, much less the carbureter. OK, I can accept it is a 1926 model. I guess the next question is what it is reasonably worth. Dad always said $600. I have no idea if that is reasonable.
  4. I cleaned off above where the carburetor should bolt on, and low and behold, there was a number there. See the pictures. moving other things I found 4 spark plugs that may not be right, but look close. You can read the numbers at least. I also found a dashboard That could have been from whatever car this came from, and a piece of floorboard with some controls. Also a couple of rolls of spark plug wire that might be appropriate. I thought the dashboard was impressive, not really bent, and not really rusty, just some surface rust on one end.
  5. I went by this afternoon to see if I can get any more numbers, and try to rotate the engine. I got some numbers, but off off what I think is a spare water or oil pump/distributor drive. I did not see any numbers otherwise that I have not shown. See the pictures is the easiest. The motor rotates easily. Not by hand, but I put a 2 foot piece of shovel handle in the flywheel and it moved easily and freely. In addition to the spare distributor, there is a spare water pump, oil pump assembly, or at least that is what I think it is. Someone has written what appears to be MOPAR on the block in crayon or slate, no idea who or when, or what they knew. Rod
  6. I don't know if it could run, but it has never run that I have seen. I can check and see if the engine engine turns freely. Someone traded it to my dad years ago, and he planned to rebuild the engine, but got gout in his hands, and they put an end to his mechanic-ing. I can't really ask him about it now, since he has passed. I will be by there this afternoon, I will see if I can get a number, and try to rotate the engine.

Members 0 1 post Report post Posted Tuesday at 12:57 PM My dad, the mechanic who originally came up with this motor, (but I have no idea where, it was more than 20 years ago), always said this was from a 38-40 Dodge Brothers vehicle, but was also used in a Chrysler of the same vintage. Right or wrong? I don't know more about it. There is a spare distributor with the motor. It seems to all be there, but you tell me. I want to sell the old motor to someone who will love it as much as he did, though he never did seem to find time to rebuild it like he always planned. Asking for information, and it is for sale.
