            Thank You...

            Here are the basics:
            I will start off by saying Everything on this car has been done by myself or with the help of my MOPAR friends in my home shop here in Arkansas and Illinois. A Huge Thank You to all who have helped over the years. You know who you are......
            440 bumped up to 512 cu.in. (Chenowith Speed & Machine Morton,Il)
            727 TorqueFlite, Reverse Manual shift (727 Specialist, Keith Long)
            "Home-Brewed" EFI (F.A.S.T. XFI 2.0)
            "Home-Brewed" Coil Near Plug (just finishing this) (F.A.S.T. XIM)
            Inboard A Body Super Stock springs with Speedway Spring Sliders
            Mini Tubbed
            "Home-Brewed" Frame ties
            14x6 Magnum 500's on the front
            15x10 Magnum 500's on the rear with 5" (centered) backspace
            3.25x50x15 Mickey Thompson ET Streets

            Plus Many, many, many more mods most of which are posted here somewhere.

            Do a search on my username "Dart67" with the quotes and "Home-Brewed"

            By the way, I am very Proud of the fact that this car was the Centerfold article in the October 2006 issue of MOPAR Action magazine.

                        Been looking for, and long distance inspecting 64 Gt verts for a car that doesn't need extensive body work. Drivetrain and electrical I can hold my own with. Found this \6, 4 speed with good paint and upholstery. Also MC and front disc brake upgrade along with a newer rear end. Can hardly sleep waiting for this to come home! And you guys that have the tools and skills to bring anything back from the dead live in a completely different (and higher) universe than I do!!

                              This forum gave me the drive to tackle this part of making it mine.

                                Great looking car, enjoy your ride! I hit that with a stout wire brush and see what it needs from there. You might be in for a pleasant surprise.

                                After rejecting cars I investigated in CA, MA, CO, KS, and one other state I can't remember, a pleasant surprise would be refreshing!

                                Thanks all for the comments. I hope to be able to give back to the knowledge pool as I dive deeper into keeping this little beauty rolling.

                                  Here is what I have been working on for the last 1-1/2 years. I have owned it for 25 years. It has been in the family since 1982. Just got it running and driving.

                                    When you get the chance, repaint the engine bay body color....Black is not correct for Mopars.

                                    Yeah, I noticed that other Darts I looked at had the same engine compartment color as the body. I wonder if they did this black when they painted the white car red. I'll look at painting that when I fix / paint the trunk.
