    First photos from bodyshop in 2 weeks. After 7 weeks in the shop, progress is great. I am selling lots of parts to raise money so he can work as fast as he can on the car!
    The car came off the rotisserie to fit the rear valance and finish work on the quarters.

    These are the seats that came out of the Dart. They are for sale as they fit 1969-71 Low Line (L2X9) interior. I have other seat cores so these need to be sold, asking $250 obo

    Hood hinge pins were threaded by a previous owner! The hood hinges are held on with clips! Spent hours cutting and chiseling 4 pins off of a used cowl that I have been saving for over 15 years! The rest should go easy now?

    I would have left them alone. Character of the car, plus that’s what Chrysle should have done in the first place.

        End of week body shop photo. He has been busy on regular collision work these past few weeks. I think it might be painted by the end of July!

          I estimate it to be close to 25 years old!

                Just stumbled onto this thread Joel. I am an owner of a 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger and live maybe 35 minutes from you. I've also been doing Ralphs cruises throughout the years with various cars. Hopefully he can get them going again next year. Looking forward to seeing your car to completion.
