My Son Don has a 291 Desoto that he will be building, probably to put in his 30 Ford Tudor. Desotos are the rarest of the hemis and share very little in common parts wise with Chryslers or Dodges, so parts tend to be hard to find and expensive. For example, he just found a 4 barrel intake (original) and it was $ 400. The aftermarket didn't really make a whole lot for them either, so when you do find an aluminum intake or other part it costs an arm and a leg.

Places like Hot Heads carry just about everything to build one, and they are very good about advice. However, anyone who plays with any of the hemis has to be prepared to spend a whole lot more than guys who play with Chevies, Fords, etc. I think Gastrick can attest to that fact.

Don

That's one good looking hemi. As stated, parts are expensive, but they sound great...

Thanks. She's been together and in the car for a while now. So far, so good.

Here's a short video. After thousands of miles, it's still running good.

As a review for the folks that haven't been around this fourum very long, I'm installing this engine...........................



In this car......................................



I took the old girl for a final spin this moring and then me, my dad, and my brother, started removing the old engine. I had mixed emotions about it but it had to be done.

I made this temp cross member out of some scrap to hold the front of the transmission steady during the swap. Hopefully, the trans is staying in the car during the process.



It was made to bolt up to the hairpin bolts on the inside of the frame rails. Worked like a charm and beats the old "hang it by coat hangers or chains" method. Still has plenty of road grime from the Daytona monsoon of 08 under there.

LOVE Your HEMI!
