            The loom in front of the radiator is the wiring for the headlights. I ended up putting a wiring harness in the car. I hid most the wiring except for that. I got the heater delete plate from a guy on here probably 10+ years ago. I can see if i can find who it was. Excellent quality aluminum plate!
            Thanks!

              Badass man! I assume the leaf springs have been moved into the frame rails? It looks really good. Very well executed.

                        Man I love red Mopar A bodies! That Demon is sweet :) What color is that? It looks real close to mine. This one is Viper red with a little bit of black and orange added. I would love to see that car in person. Nice work :thumbsup:

                          Beautiful car!
                          What are the other specs on it? (Engine, transmission, rear end)
                          It looks to me that it is a manual transmission car with a hydraulic master cylinder.
                          Some more pics of the interior etc. would be greatly appreciated.......

                          Not sure on the paint color. It was already painted when I bought it. It is a 60 over 440 with stealth heads, i converted it to a 4 speed, centerforce clutch, wilwood hyd clutch setup, 8 3/4 489 wit 355 gears.. Idditit tilt column also. The car used tohave fenderwell headers when i got it. Had to replace the inner fenders and had the engine bay painted.

                            Looks great!!
                            It appears you’re in the final stages before hitting the streets.

                            Any track time planned?

                            Should be interesting with manual steering and manual brakes for now.

                              Nice! Would you happen to know the specs on the wheels? A body width or narrowed? Thanks in advance.

                              I think that they were 6.5 or 7" bs by 10" wide. Can't remember off hand. I can measure them if I get time.
