I am really excited about this car but this will be the first car that I haven't had a direct hand in. Every car I have ever had has been done by me, this one is different because its on the other side of the country. The color is beautiful and the gentleman doing the car has more experience than anyone I have ever met... and has been a personal friend for over 30 years, it will be well worth the wait!!
When going over the car for the first time i found that the car had been exported to Germany and then at some point returned to the US. Fender tags give a number for registration in Germany as well as a "Plymouth, Made in the USA".
Car has been painted in its original LL1 Turquoise color. 1974 Dart front suspension/K member will be installed with a fresh 360 and 727, 8 1/4" rear end will be installed also. New front windshield will be installed with new rubber seal, rear window is fine but will also have a new seal installed as will a new white bucket seat interior, headliner, carpet and new door panels. New upper dash pad, cherry lower 2 piece pad, restored instrument cluster, dash repainted as well as all interior panels. Classic air too....Paint still needs to be cut and buffed but its nice to see it in its present state.
You by chance have an extra passenger side tail light you could part with?
No sir I don't
I purchased new tail light housings and lenses from Laysons, nicer than the other re-pops.
Looks like you have a few cool rigs there, whats that behind the Charger?
My buddy has quite a collection of cars, not really sure what that is.
I found that the sun just cooks the paint off the older cars that leaves a patina but next to no rust.
