    • New brakes all around
    • Complete re-wiring
    • Rebuilt the transmission
    • New wheels and tires
    • New radiator
    Etc....

    Still loving it!

                Never cared for notch back cars, but yours looks real nice.

                  You've been busy, for sure!

                  Didn't you completely buff the car too??

                  I love the look of your car!!

                      No....it was born FF1 Light Metallic Green.....previous owner must have changed it.....
                      But this current color is basically Frost Blue - a Mopar color.

                      Yes.....spent a LOT of time trying to bring to paint back to life!

                          "Built, not bought"?

                          Ok, she's built.
                          But what did you buy her?
                          3rd year anniversary is leather.

                              Thanks guys!
                              I just got back from a nice drive in her.....runs flawlessly!

                              I love the notch back.....I wouldn't have bought it if it was a fast back....I'd still be saving for an e-body.....and probably still not have a Cuda!

                                  challenger side 2.jpg IMG_0895.JPG Jeff here is my daily driver. I've had it 20 years funny thing, I was looking for a 70-74 Barracuda when I came across this Challenger (original owner to boot) in the old Auto Trader Magazine. The Valiant is my play car and just bought it in Jan. from a friend of mine. Not my first choice but the more I work on it,drive it and look at it the more I like it. With that being said I'd trade them both off for a 67-68 fastback Cuda or a 68-69 Road Runner. I would really like a Road Runner as my Dad had a new 69 Road Runner when I was a kid (8 years old at the time).
                                  Again nice car and keep up the good work.

                                    I like the notchbacks, and yours looks really good.
