Drivetrain: G3 Hemi engine, 727 reverse valve body manual shift automatic transmission A-Body Console, 8-3/4 Sure Grip.
Already has Big Bolt Front Disc and 8-3/4 Rear. Not sure how much will be usable.
Suspension... TBD. Dylan would like Pro Touring but I do have to set some limits... We'll see.
I will start adding progress updates here as we go.
So far it's been a lot of disassembly, bag and tag, lots of pictures to help with putting it back together and lots of researching and ordering parts.
Getting it ready for Media Blasting.
Will be getting both rear full quarter panels, full trunk floor, trunk extensions, front and rear valances... All have been ordered - All AMD
Lot's of big boxes starting to fill up the living room. Quarters are back ordered...
Thank you to everyone that has done this before and shared their projects. Too many to name...
You all are an inspiration to guys like me that enjoy the cars but have never jumped in with both feet neck deep! Limited experience but a willingness to put in the effort.
It will be a learning adventure for both me and Dylan. He will have a real appreciation and investment in ownership. I use the term investment very loosely...
Expecting to be upside down and under water but it's more about the journey than the price.
Hot water and my thumbnail...Yahtzee! The original Plate and Original 69 License Tab under all those other years!
My first car was a 69 Fastback, 318 Auto... This will be Dylan's first car when we are done.
Day one 3/26/2016
Stopped to buy the trailer on my way to Vancouver WA. Tilt bed with a beaver tail.
Here is a tip I found, it works great!
My rain gutter trim removal tool. Start at one end and work your way to the other.
