  1. It has been quite a while since any update on the 49 Caddy so here is one After getting it all cleaned up I FINALLY moved on to the mechanics. I removed all the plugs and sprayed WD-40 into each cylinder and then turned the motor by hand. Cleaned all the plugs and re-installed them. Cleaned and flushed the radiator and installed it with new hoses and thermostat. Installed new (correct) early valve cover gaskets. Drained/dropped oil pan and cleaned out about 1" of sludge. Painted and reinstalled with new gaskets. Installed new battery box with new battery Inst

  4. Here in NE Pa. it was hard to tell how much actually fell by the time I got out to start moving it because we had a wintry mix and it kind of tamped the snow down a bit - so I am saying we got around 10"-12". Weather was saying 16"-24" so they were off by a bit. At 2 AM I started to shovel a path so I could at least get one car out (it was too early to use the snow blower). I was able to get a car out at 3:30 am and went to shovel an office building I have. Returned home around 5 AM (still too early to use the blower) so I kept shoveling. Around 7 AM I started the blower but it was g
  5. Thanks for all the replies/advice. Maybe I wasn't very clear in my OP about what I was asking. I DO NOT want to seal/treat the inside of the new tank as that is not recommended by the manufacturers of the sealing kits. Also, I forgot to mention that the exterior of the tank has some sort of "oily" substance on it so maybe it already has been treated to prevent it from starting to rust. If I want to paint it I would need to remove that oily stuff before trying to paint it I wanted to know if I should prep/coat/paint the OUTSIDE of the tank prior to installing it. I believe i
  6. So here's the situation...I know it is probably a matter of opinion... I bought a new gas tank for my 49 caddy. According to the seller it is made from the same type of metal as the original. I called the seller and asked if it is recommended to paint/undercoat the tank before installing it. The answer was "no". It was also stated that the new tank will "rust just like the original one because it is made from the same metal"????? Sooooooo... Should I or shouldn't I at least try to protect the tank BEFORE installing it? I am leaning towards cleaning the outs
  7. The guy driving the car on the left looks like Benny Hill................
  8. This car is less than 15 minutes from me and I have been thinking about going to look at it. I certainly do not need another one....
  9. Look on Ebay. There are quite a few. Maybe the one you need is listed Joe

  11. So now my friend and I are going to move this car to his house. The owner needs the garage space. We are going to install a new battery and some gas. The last time we ran it I believe it ran out of gas. I am going to drive it the 10 miles or so to put it into storage (I have a "car capsule" that I am loaning my friend). I am still VERY interested in this wagon and now that the owner needs his garage maybe I can get it for a price more in tune with my thoughts. Plus, the car hasn't moved since we last went there - May of 2019
  12. Good for the seller and I hope for the purchaser, too. Maybe it was bought for a really good price as the ad said "HAVE TO SELL". In all honesty if I had some room I would have given it a look, too.
  13. I observed the following: There is overspray in the wheel wells as well as on the rocker panels (inside the front door jambs). It almost looks like the green was sprayed over the white paint. Also, if you look at the inside door area of the rear doors you can see where the green and white paint was taped off and painted green. It does not look like factory applied paint. Not sure if this was originally a 2-tone car. It could very well be. Also, need to see some pictures of the underside.
