Gee, there should be a section for cars etc. on the lounge! Anyway, I've got some questions. I have a 1948 Oldsmobile 2-dr coupe. It's 6-volt with a flathead 238 c.i. inline-six with 100 hp @3400 rpm with a three-on-the-tree. It has been sitting for about twelve years or so and the engine is frozen. I put in some anti-seize products in hopes for freeing up the motor and even had the car towed around the neiborhood trying to slip the clutch to free up the motor but no luck. I think I might have hurt the clutch or tranny or something doing this as when I put it in gear, the car rolled instead of dragging the locked-up tires like it did at first. It also started making a whineing sound. Should I pull the motor out and see if I can have it re-built or put in a new engine like a 350? Should I try and find a replacement 238, or try to find a Rocket V-8 from the 1950's? I've been looking for rockets on the internet but they always want to include a car. I found rocket appearance kits for 350's that will make it look like a rocket with engine block paint, valve covers and air filter housing. When the rocket came out in 1949, was it still a 6-volt? When did rockets first become 12-volt? I am trying to get this car back on the road. Its in great shape, but it just needs engine work. I am planning this build to be very classy. I am trying to be as period correct as possible and using parts made in the U.S.A only. I see this car with white walls some day. It is currently sitting low with cut springs and mag wheels. My dad and I rescued it from a street rod butchering. Please give me advice and knowledge!
