    K&L Machine



    A forlorn sign.

    You can't have a business without business.

    We buy, sell, and trade 1955-1959 Plymouth, Dodge, Desoto, Chrysler, and Imperial cars, and parts!

    The machine shop is closed. But we can make exceptions.
    If you are interested in purchasing machine tools, please PM me.

    Today I led a tiltbed truck back to the shop bearing a 1954 Hudson Hornet sedan. It has the 308 "Twin-H" flathead 6 cylinder. The car has been sitting for over 3 years, and was unable to be started 1 year ago. I have already found an issue. The coil wire fell apart into 3 pieces when I tried to push it back onto the coil tower. No spark will definitely hinder starting. I don't believe I had ever seen a rust free car that has spent its life in the rust belt, but I sure have now. The main body color is called Roman Bronze, but looks more like tomato soup. The engine bay and dash are incredible looking, but the car was left uncovered and rat poison was not put inside prior to storage. They ate the door panels and pissed on the whole thing. The entire car is covered with about 4 pounds of bird droppings, but the paint is mostly shiny with some lacquer crackle on the decklid.

    This car currently belongs to the most recent ex-president of the National Plymouth Owner's Association. His name is Bob Kerico. Some of you guys may have run into him in Tulsa. I am going to try to see if I can get copies of his photos from Tulsarama to post on the forum. He also owns a 1952 Plymouth sport coupe.

    You know what that car looks like to me. It looks like a bee from a cartoon I used to watch but I can't remember what it was called.
    My asshole brother bought her back in September '57. That's when you got your new model year, in September. Brand-new, she was. She had the smell of a brand-new car. That's just about the finest smell in the world, 'cept maybe for pussy.

    Why don't I recall seeing this thread before Mark?

    What's the news on the car mate?
    I looks amazing to me.
    Everything's good!

    That car is a '52 Plymouth. The Hudson isn't so hot.
