Home from points southwest. Scored a 2103/6 chassis and running gear and miscellaneous bits-n-pieces. Met a nice guy, got a new Harley-Davidson hat from a dealer I had never stopped at before, and saw some bits of the US of A which were new to me.

This gets me to 3 356 complete (mostly) engines, one block and crank, and one complete one coming next week. Plots-n-plans are brewing.

Fred is out inspecting her new possession added to her collection.

Sounds like Fred wants some version of a 16 cylinder Packard using two 356 engines.......712 cubic inches of Packard power! That Fred has you wrapped around her little paw!

Now, you know, I may just buy her a computer and let her open an account here and start posting on her own. Then where will you be??? ;)

Man, that damned thing sat outside for awhile. I pulled the dipstick to see what was on it, and a couple of gallons of water ran out of the dipstick hole. Told me that no oil was contaminating the crankcase, but that it's a good thing that I did look what with winter headed this way. And the engine is likely stuck but good. :mad:


So I drained the crankcase, sealed the drain plug, and poured the 3 gallons of used oil that I had into it. And the two piece-quarts. And a gallon of ATF. Still nothing at the dipstick hole, as in, not running out. I had another 3 gallons of diesel, so in that went, too. Still nothing. So I'll score another fiver of diesel tomorrow and add that and see what happens.


It can have months to soak in that brew.

Home. Unloaded. Put away. I think it's a 2115. Deluxe 8 coupe. Good body. Been sitting a long time. IT'll be sitting a bit longer, but it'll get gotten to early. Some (re)assembly required.

Fred immediately noticed that there is no ornament on this hood. Can't put one over on her.

And this is the crown jewel of this year's acquisitions. It's a 2106/2125, the one that They Say maybe has 20 left of it. Wait, they always say "extant." No matter, this one exists at my house now.

Being as it is what it is, it needs to go back together as correctly as possible.

Now the fun begins . . . .

Thank you, it is. It has some, very little rust in the rockers, but that notorious A-pillar rust is absent. The engine was changed awhile back, but the guy bought another 356 to go in it and I go to collect that today.


I may do some research to see if I can find a "numbers matching" - I know they didn't, but timeframe - block. I think that this is an earlier one, but I might be wrong. I have 3 '47 complete engines and a '47 block, so it may just get to be close enough. This other engine, today's pick-up, is a '47, too.

That Fred is one smart critter. She was already scoping the underside as I was fishing the chains out from under it last night. We got in at dark, and I loathe unloading stuff like that in the dark, but what are you going to do?


Fred gets to play on/in it today and she can tell me her ideas when I get back in tonight.


More pics later.
