    I bought this car in June, 2011
    After looking at about 25 overpriced chevys.This is my first Dodge ever. I can't wait to get it done. I have built a few "driver' Hot Rods but never a restoration of this extent. All body and fab work done in my own garage. I outsourced the motor and tranny.


    In 2001 I became disabled with a rare disease like MS. Since then it is my car projects that keep me going. This will never be a 100 point car. Missing original motor and tranny and that lovely butterscotch color. So I Decided to go with a color I liked, Citron Yella. I found a 1971 440 and a 727 auto. The car came with a brown interior. That may also change.


    The underside of the R/T is done up to paint. I am now workin on suspesion components, once all my parts are ready, the car will come back in for another round of bodywork.
