  1. So, here is what I have, both cars are complete and cancer free. Both bodies are very straight and filler-free. Both need body prep & paint. (no worries about getting them painted) #1 - 1955 Model 56R-Two-Door Super Riviera - Barn Find, All original and complete (short of 2 missing trim pieces). Last licensed in 1967. Original 322 Nailhead engine seized but no noticeable cracks or damage from external inspection. Needs Interior but have all the original seats and panels. #2 - 1955 Model 61-Four-Door Century Tourback Sedan - All original and complete. Last licensed in 1999. Original 322 Nailhead engine has a large hole punched through the side of the block. All other parts seem good from external inspection. Interior complete and somewhat fair condition. #3 - 1955 Special or Century rolling chassy only (no body). Good running 322 Nailhead engine with good Dynaflow tranny. (I can drive the chassy with a string on the throttle and a gas can strapped to the back!) Dropped uprights, new rear knee action shocks, brand new wide-whitewall tires. So, here is what I've been thinking but someone please tell me if I'm crazy. I love #1. The look and style is what I like the most. #2 however, upon a little bit of research, only 13,269 were produced. It seems that most of these were stripped for their engines, parts and left to die. I'm not seeing many at all so I'm wondering if this will eventually be much more valuable?... Nonetheless, the bottom line is that I have other projects as well and I have to sacrifice somewhere. So, I was thinking about a couple of options... Option 1: Pull the engine from #1 and put in the engine from #3 (temporarily). Tear down the #1 engine and see what it takes to get her moving again short of a full $5k rebuild. If easy fix, (rings, seals, etc) get running on rolling chassy to test and put back in original car #1. Put #3 engine in #2, paint it and sell it. Option 2: Put the engine from #3 into #1, pull all parts off of rolling chassy that I want, swap out any other parts that can be used to put on #1 and sell off #2 and #3 with two bad engines. Option 3: Same as Option 2 but part out the #2 Century and scrap what's left. (this option kinda kills me to think about) Option 4: ???? Please give me some good feedback here! Thanks! Oh, and so far I'm only into these about $4,000 total but need to sell one to fund the other.

  3. Hello, discovered that one of the front brake drum of my Century have small kracks in the casting. Some runs on the edges to the centre and one around the edge. Probably it might be the reason of the shaking during the brake. What is the solution? Is there point to refurb this drum or it would be better to change it? If change - which should be better to buy, 1. Modern aftermarket 2. Old aftermarket (Kelsey-Heynes etc? 3. Old used? What interchangeability is for 1955 Century front brake drums? right / left what production years drums fits? is this difference between super/roadmaster/century/special front brakes? is there difference between power brake car drums or not? If somebody can answer this question - thank you in advance!
  4. I went to start up my 55 Special and it starting making this metal on metal noise. It will still go into gear and drive (obvisouly just went back in the garage), but continues to sound horrific. All fluids are up, and starts fine. My dad thought it may be the torque converter- any thoughts? Thanks in advance for the help
