15 years after the 37 Dodge came to live with me it’s finally driving !!! As photobucket decided to hold my images hostage and they are gone from the original thread I was doing I figured I’d just do a brief recap. This is what I brought home in 2002. 37 Dodge PU by M Patterson, on Flickr The previous owner had already put a Mustang II front suspension , and then pulled the Drivetrain from a Mustang II that had had an engine fire…..2.8 V6, C3 transmission and 8” Ford rear end. There was no floor, the fire wall was butchered, and no steering column, or shafts for the rack and pinion. As I had an old Hemi sitting around I decided to mock it up and see if it would be feasible for the truck (it sure wasn’t going to stay a V6) 6X2 by M Patterson, on Flickr With that decided the poor old truck became a back burner project over the next 15 years, it would get moved back into the main shop in between other projects (I built 12 other cars/trucks from the time I got the 37 home until now). When it did get back into the shop there were several mockups. 37 MU by M Patterson, on Flickr Building a floor and firewall. fc by M Patterson, on Flickr and a bit of body work including removing the spare tire well tirewell-1 by M Patterson, on Flickr welded1 by M Patterson, on Flickr The drive train evolved into a 1955 331 Hemi. with .060 Jahns NOSR pistons (current displacement is now 341 CI), PAW Cam, and Weiand Drag Star intake with 6 Rochester 2G Carburetors. The transmission is a 46RH Torqueflight (basically the overdrive version of the 727 Torqueflight), rebuilt with heavier duty 47RH/48RH internals. Hemi 46RH by M Patterson, on Flickr The rear end is a Dana 60 from a 68 Road Runner and has 4.56 gears in it. dana 60 by M Patterson, on Flickr I ended up upgrading the front brakes to 11” and added manual ride height adjusters. IMG_20170311_132933012_zps7isb8rvk by M Patterson, on Flickr I had to put a bed in it and used a 60s era 15 Gallon beer keg for a gas tank and an old Western Auto tool box for a battery box. bed by M Patterson, on Flickr It’s all registered and insured and I’ve found excuses to drive it daily for the last week or so. 37 Road test by M Patterson, on Flickr I still have a bunch of stuff to do on it (body work, paint and interior) and if I don’t end up selling it first it will probably be torn down at some point for the paint. For now I’m just enjoying it.
