RewT's 1952 Kaiser Manhattan.

Post by RewT » 10 Aug 2016, 10:34

This car was giving to me and my wife. Her grandparents have owned the car since new. It has been sitting for years and needs some work, but for its age its in really good shape! The car does run and drive with the original Flathead engine in it!

Here are some pics of it! I cant wait to get it fixed up and ready for cruising.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

And a few more. It also has all the extra parts in the trunk, skirts, visors and a bunch of other add-ons. They ordered this car with everything that was available at the time!

Car is now at home getting work done. I ordered a new 6 volt battery along with a complete tune up including new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, points and condesor and a carb rebuild kit. The plan is to see if I can get the flathead 6 running then rebuild the stock brake system to make it work, if it needs to much, it will be converted to disc. I am trying to just do the bare minimum now to get it on the road with the stock drivetrain. If all else fails I got a 327 and turbo 350 both in great shape. I also acquired a good running and driving nail head in a trade a few months back with a good trans that was working in the car.

And just for fun I installed these cool headlight louvered visors today! Been debating on what ride to put them on and Howard wanted them the most..
