Liking it so far. She will be happy to have it!!! I'm doing a Willy's for my daughter only the one I'm doing is a 33 Willy's. I had a friend make up decals for it that say "Lilly's Coupe" as my daughter's name is Lilly. I'm going to go for a nostalgia gasser look. Pink, orange windows, blown engine and halibrands.

Oil filter on the early Chrysler is basically total opposite of the 426. Passenger side at the rear of the block. Most just use a remote filter adapter to relocate the filter.

Thanks for the unanswered comments, guys. I really appreciate you all looking.

 

So I'm finally getting back on track with this one. I will post some pictures soon, but first I have a question about the filter set up. In the picture above with the remote adapter, is there an internal pump that moves the oil to the oil filters or is an external pump needed?

 

Thanks in advance!

Nice progress!

 

As far as the oil pump goes- you should be able to just plumb the remote filters into the engine. The internal pump should produce enough flow to keep the oil moving, unless you're mounting the filters in the trunk or some crazy place like that. B)

Very nice work, Art, especially on that chassis.

 

The door hinges are nicely done, too.

 

If money goes the way I want, I might actually be able to fly out to NNL West this year. I hope I get to see this there if I can make it.

Like everybody else, I'm glad to see you working on this build again. Your black Vette that is a replica of the car your father worked on looks great.

Dave, thanks for the compliment. The Vette was a fun project, but I'm glad it's over!

After opening the doors, I needed to work up some sort of door jambs. It looks rather simple in these pictures, but I think it will be effective when it's all painted up.

I also started on the trunk hinges. This is my first brass and solder foray when it comes to models, as little as it is!
