Hi all! I'm all new here on the forums. However, I could not resist to start a thread about my first classic car restoration. I got my hands on a Dodge Dart 270 4-Door Slant-6 225 1964 in a trade and I was super stoked to get it running as a cruiser around the coast where I live. But, as for most other classic car first-timers I ran into BIG problems. Engine is done for it and the body/chassis have seen better days. The car was last seen on the roads in 1989, since then it's been partially restored by the man I got it from. However the last two years it's been sitting outside and it has taken it's toll on it. My first plan was to have it running this summer, however I got promoted to manager at the bodyshop where I work and combined with having 3 small kids I don't see this as a reality anylonger.. But maybe the summer 2022 will be the year that this car finally hits the roads again! This is the car when I got it home in September: I started with a deep-cleaning, scrubbing the outside and inside of the car. Once I started to climb around inside I felt the floor flexing.. A little too much. So I tore out the interior and this is what I found. It was all covered with fibreglass bondo.. And it only got worse the more i looked around.. A couple of weeks went by and I got my hands on a 273 V8 and a TorqueFlite transmission to go with it. I started to tear the engine apart for a budget rebuild, there will be no new pistons or axles but it will be sent of for a hydrojet cleaning. And now I'm trying to get the old Slant-6 out of there.. I have so many questions about this operation but I'm staying positive! I would love to get feedback on this build and links to where I can get parts for my Dodge (with shipping to Sweden that is). Thanks for reading!
