Re: 1940 super eight 160 series 1804 model 1362 138" Wheelbase: making it driveable

Is there a best practice written up on bringing a 356 super eight back to life? I read somewhere about filling the crankcase with oil and pressurizing the engine lubrication system without starting the car which makes sense but I am wondering what is the best way to do that.

I wouldn't say there is more insulation than normal compared to a 1940 model 120 that I worked on in the past.

This car became a part donor at some point - it is missing the original radio, the under dash heater, the air cleaner and the trunk rack.

I don't see any evidence of air conditioning. That would be pretty hard to miss.

Here are interior photos for my friend Sam who is trying to figure out how his interior goes together on his 1940 160 1803 Touring Sedan. It is hard to piece an interior together if someone took it out before you got the car. Sorry the picture orientation is all wonky. Click on the picture to orient it correctly.

This is a forum to share what I am doing to get my 1940 160 model 1362 Touring sedan back on the road. This will be a rolling restauration meaning I want to get the car running and then work on what needs to be done as I go. The goal for the car is to keep it as authentic and original as possible. The car itself is pretty much an unmolested original car but very weathered and worn. I have had the car 20 years but have not worked on it for the past 17 years. It has been stored in a dry place for the past 22 years. In this forum I plan on sharing pictures documenting the work and the car with the intent of being a resource to others who might be in a similar situation.

Here are some photos of where I am as I started back into the car this summer.

Note I moved this over to the blogs. See you there.
