Default Deuce Deuce? Deuce Squared?

The Carma gods have shined upon me! I recently helped a childhood friend fullfill a "bucket List" item for her Father. A 1919 Dodge Brothers Touring I found for her in Georgia. I paid to get it shipped. We delivered it for her Dad's Birthday.... was a really good day.

A week later, a gentleman responds to an ad I have on here, wanting to buy an original floorboard. He does not have the floorboard but has a complete 32 toolkit in a custom box. We exchange phone numbers and talk on the phone. He also has a bunch of parts.... and a 5 window. I agree to go up and look at the items an hour from me. Turns out we know and deal with all the same people. 20 years ago he was basically me. Wonderful, wonderful guy. I now have a new friend.....and a 5 window and a full garage......

Is it another 4, Jim, or a V8?

.....now if I can get them running.... LOL. The coupe just needs a little maintenance. The starter spins but won’t engage, probably fron sitting. I will pull it and free it up.

Just an update. We had to replace all the hubs and drums (has a hydraulic conversion and they were old originals and all messed up). Thanks to my friend Matt who figured it all out.

I took it to a local car picnic. This was my first time driving it. Sounds bad_ss but only because it only has the Exhaust manifold at this point. (OK where did that link come from). Still a lot of small stuff to do, but it is drivable!
