well i signed up here for some insight to the mopar comunity. ive dreamed of owning a 67-69 dart since i was an early teenager 12-13yrs old. i have always wanted a hemi dart, but one that sat in the weeds and would just scare people away with its awesome power. since im all growed up now, its damn expensive to get that kind of dream to be a reality. so ive been looking for the right car since last july to start with. i was after a car nobody could say they raced or competed in. so i of course could not buy a allready done v8 car or even a nice driver. i started with as rust free as i could find body 67 post car from a member on here a few weeks ago. many said it was a rust bucket, but it only needs floor panels and lower quarter patches. well i was planning on cutting most of it out anyways. so it made out just fine for me. so ive got the car and have started cutting it up. first i got some of the floor cut out, but not all, cuz im going to do each panel individually so not to stress the body while removing the floorings structure. also started on a full minitub of the car. not just stretching the wells, but removing them. then putting in place aluminum tubs for extra ride height room for that lower look im after. im in line for a 25.5 or better cage, but thats a few months out due to racing season kicking off and im in no hurry this second to get it done. allready got a dana60 lined up, hoping it will fit with suspension coming with it. i may stay with leafs moved inwards if i cant use ladder bars in classes im interested in? so your still wanting to know about the engine and turbo are you? good so am i. ive been trying to get a 54 or later no bell 331, 354, or 392 hemi used in street rods. ive seen them for really cheap prices. however every time i go to look or buy one it seems the price goes up once theres an interested buyer. if you can help get me one in the kansas city area let me know. why this engine series you ask? blocks are indistructable and plentiful and have that hemi look and sound im after. then there is the turbocharger. 106mm precision turbo and engine unit, capable of 2500+hp worth of air flow. its a monster and it may scare the shit out of me, but whats the point of hotroding if you cant scare yourself once in a while? im not scared im pumped about this go around for me. im tired of bracket racing and super gas classes. so this is a new swing for me and i cant wait. so heres the car. it was forsale on here a while back. i bought it and intend to keep it for a long time. not many post cars ive seen, but i like it since it reminds me of my other favorite car the 66 chevy2 like my fathers race car.
