Saturday was one of those great days that no matter how cold it was outdoors, and it was cold for us here in VA.. Around 25. I had the oportunity to purchase twin Chrylser Hemis from a good pal and neighbor down here in Reedville. These two statues to Detroit muscle were out of a Matthews Martinque like the one in Saturdays header. Oh Did you miss it? Should have been there.. These two Hemis have been sitting in the same spot for about 30 years. It’s all there, carbs, transmissions, copper risers, and yes they ran well when pulled.
Not that they would now. But with about 1000 hrs on them they still had some life. The reason why they were pulled was an annoying issue with the transmissions.
Apparently the transmission is an issue when the fluid gets a tad low. But they are Hemis, marine Hemis with all the goodies!
Now, one question… What in the hell to do with them? Rebuild one for that dream U22 with a Hemi and 25 sportsman interior? Plop one in my Cmax electric car? mmm I wonder if the boatress will allow me to make a coffee table out of one? Here is a cool video of one complete! Oh yeah!
Anyway if you have any cool ideas, do the math and let us know.
