1964 Plymouth Max Wedge Oil Pan
This oil pan comes from a 1964 Plymouth Max Wedge. Because of the vehicle’s swinging oil pickup, the pans are unique to the car and cannot be bought. Years before, this particular pan was converted into a deep sump and later – when the car was restored – the deep sump was removed. In its place, a panel was brazed on. The brazing process fatigued the metal in several areas and stress cracks began to form. To cover the bad repair, body filler was applied. Therefore, this oil pan needed a new bottom cap to be fabricated along with the correct baffles on the inside to clear the oil pickup.
