    1974 Plymouth Duster

    Got back from the tire store! Had them swap on 2x 275/60/15s on the Duster with new rims that have 3.75" backspacing instead of 4.50", match fronts so much better, taller & wider tire from the 245/60/15s, and now have new vision wheels swapped on the blue 383 Dart!!

    1973 Plymouth Scamp 360 Sleeper!!

    Forgot to make a thread about the Scamp I bought earlier this year! This car has been around since I've noticed it back in 2011, but has been in the same city I live in since 2002. Would always pass it on the side of the road while walking or driving by, always wondered what was under the...

    1974 Plymouth Duster

    Here we go again haha......... If anyone's still looking at this thread I'm mainly posting about my cars on Instagram now, same username 'gwcuda65'. I'll comprise everything in a nutshell on what went on with the Duster this year. I made a post on instagram asking which out of 3 cars I should...

    1973 Dodge 383 Dart

    Right? The '72 n' down front ends are sweet. I honestly wanted to do the same, but the depression was so bad for a while I guess there was nothing to shed, finally over it though and things are really looking up now with the newer additions this year. '73 Scamp w/built 360, 8-3/4 rear...

    1973 Dodge 383 Dart

    Not too many at the moment, main things I'd like to change is the rear stripe position so it's slanted, going over the rear side marker lights as it should. Going to get the old bondo out of the roof seams and probably fiberglass fill, then roll on some rhino liner textured stuff on the roof so...

    1973 Dodge 383 Dart

    Picked up this sweet 1973 Dodge Dart with a 383 Big Block for $4200 a couple weeks ago! My buddy did all the work to it, it's nice having a big block A-body in the herd of Mopars for once. Long term restoration, I plan on taking everything down to sheet metal, fix any problems...

    Honestly after doing this for so long I prefer stock Mopar stuff, seems to outlast anything else I've used, best recommendation, stock Mopar ECU conversion, or MSD.

    Hi! It's one I got off eBay, they really are big compared to the stock Mopar type, there's 2 different outer shaft body lengths I've found, haven't used one in a later A yet, but I'd worry about the longer shaft version interfering with a 3 speed wiper motor. You can get a different HEI...

    1965 Plymouth Barracuda - 318 MAGNUM V8

    Well, tragedy struck my '65 Barracuda last month... Came home from work around 1AM, not even 10 minutes being back my baby was struck by some dumbass on meth + more. Hit & Run. Caught it on my surveillance camera, here's a link to that vid on my youtube channel + the aftermath. Called...

    LED 7" Round Headlights Upgrade!!

    Anytime :). They do sell what they call LED flasher relays to replace the stock one. For some reason the stock relay doesn't know what to do with the excess voltage when those LED bulbs are installed, drawing less voltage (like you said), so it freaks out. The LED flashers are designed to...

    LED 7" Round Headlights Upgrade!!

    They have the H4 connector so I don't see why they wouldn't work. I am not sure, being an LED system they should draw less current than halogens, I'd suggest first trying them out without running a relay wiring harness, plug into stock harness. If you see flickering going on constantly, then...

    LED 7" Round Headlights Upgrade!!

    You'll have to splice into the running light harness to have the halo's work, so either way, if you just want the halos only vs the running lights in the grille or bumper, just remove the bulbs from there.

    1966 Plymouth Barracuda - Commando 273 V8

    After the '66 was sold, I spent a large sum of that money on a FiTech setup w/tanks inc. tank. Plans were to install it on the '74 Duster but never really got around to it. Last August I bought another Duster, '73, ripped the 318 out and 360 Magnum swapped it, was getting close to getting...

    1966 Plymouth Barracuda - Commando 273 V8

    I'm very bad at keeping my threads up to date lol. She's been sold to a guy in Illinois, from Utah, for an astounding $3,000. Before that happened, I swapped the '67 273 in her from the chocolate frosty colored '65 Barracuda. Built my own dual exhaust for her as well. I really loved this...

    LED 7" Round Headlights Upgrade!!

    A couple weeks ago I decided to look into upgrading the stock halogen headlights in my 1974 Plymouth Scamp towards something a little different, something much brighter perhaps. After spending a few hours researching on the net and eBay for ones I absolutely liked, I was sold on the direct plug...

    1974 Plymouth Duster

    Been a long time since I've posted, nearly 1 year later lol. Painted her last summer which was fun, gotta do the roof next, only thing that's holding me back is getting the shift shaft seal replaced, adjust bands, and see if I get reverse back so I can finally start driving it. Last year in...

    1974 Plymouth Duster

    Got it fired up last Friday!! Sounds like it's got a mild cam in it, some strange lifter tick, hopefully that'll go away on an up coming oil change, might just have to switch over to adjustable rockers. Sounds real good, now just gotta get the calipers back on, brakes bled, inspect trans...

    1966 Plymouth Barracuda - Commando 273 V8

    Another rare update! Pulled the whole drive train out cause the Commando began to knock a little, pulled the pan off and ohh goody... Yes, that's a rats body & nest w/bones, that's why the oil was so chunky when I first got it!! So got a new oil pump & pickup tube coming. Since this...

    1965 Plymouth Barracuda - 318 MAGNUM V8

    Gosh! I gotta keep on top of these threads! So got the later 904 rebuilt, installed it w/ 2 jacks & a jack stand, fairly easy actually. Filled it up with ATF+4, worked on installing the B&M Star/Ratchet shifter which wasn't too difficult, the way I went about installing that was I actually...

    Diy - Magnum Swap!!

    According to Allpar.com they make 220 HP @4400 and 295 Torque @3200 I'm inclined to believe that they make way more power than what they say, it HAULS!
