1940 Plymouth coupe 360 Magnum

Post by russellmopar » Sat Feb 20, 2010 4:04 am

This is my 1940 Plymouth Business coupe.
I bought it off my Dad's friend when medical issues prevented him from
working on it. It came with a 400 small block Chevy, 200 R4 transmission and a rear from a 60's GM. Being a Mopar fan
I knew that had to go. I got it on the road with that combo in 3 months, in time for a few carshows at the end of summer.
During the winter I installed with the help of my brother(the Chevy fan) TPI and a megasquirt 2. I ran that for a year till I
found a Wrecked 98 Dodge Dakota Rt in the junkyard that looked like it had an argument with a telephone pole. I had already
bought a 68 roadrunner rear at Chrysler Carlisle. I already had a 518 transmission that I also got out of that same junkyard.
Found a fuel rail and regulator that wasn't return less in the junkyard. Used Gm temp sensors. Standard vacuum advance distributor.
Gm Hei 8 module for ignition but not controlled by megasquirt yet. Electric fan controlled by spare output.
Stepper motor Iac is stock and similar to Gm.

Bit of an update, Added heat and A/C, headers and a tow hitch. Been towing a pop up trailer to car shows(Harrington De, Chryslers at Carlisle, Macungie Pa Wheels of Time, and Bloomsburg Pa).
