Dodge meadowbrook, oh my...

Tired iron

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New to this forum...but, I'm sure I'll be here often as I've just begun a new project, a 1950 Dodge meadowbrook.  I'm not new to auto restorations, but have mostly worked on British stuff (just finishing up a 67 Austin Healey sprite). 


This is my first restoration on an older American car, gotta admit, and will both need and welcome all advice and help.


I bought this sight unseen for 200 bucks. It as spent most of its entire life up lake chelan where there are about 5 miles total of road. Consequently, the mileage on her is very low. I had to bring it down on a barge.


Unfortunately,  the winters have been hard on her. They can get 20 FEET of accumulated snow pack. The roof is very carved in and the front floor pans rotten out. Surprisingly,  other than that, the body is in pretty good shape, glass and chrome are good.

I havent dug into the engine yet.

Today was getting the seats out and all the rat droppings and dirt. Oh man it was bad.


Here's a few pictures.
