    My fellow moparist,
    I guess i should have started the over a year ago when I bought her. She is a 70 Swinger 340 4 spd. Plum crazy:cheers:
    Found her on CL. waited for the seller to get real. I am a recovering "E" body guy. Just got tired of their superior attitude...lol. She should be outta the paint shop next week. Hoping to have her ready for fall fling in Cali this year.
    Thanks
    Ron

    Nice project! Looking forward to seeing its progress. I love plum crazy.. Looks great on these cars.

    What are you going to do with the rear wheel well openings?

    Thank you for the comp.
    When I bought the car the plan was to put quarters on it. Then I talked to the guy who bought the car from original owner in 70, and I decided to leave the cut outs and fill it with tread.:cheers:
    The second owner raced this car from 70 till mid 80s when his kids lost interest. He parted is out, saved the motor for a spare for his 70 Duster (also plum crazy, four speed). He sold the duster to a friend, and some 20 plus years later I bought the original motor, and it should be back in real soon.

      Hope to see your Dart at Fall Fling.

      Bring it even if it's not finished. Actually in progress cars like that get more attention that finished ones. And it proves that YOU did the work and didn't just buy it done!
