New guy here 74 chally
« on: June 09, 2019 - 11:38:18 am »
Hi guys!

I'm new here from France. I'm the proud owner of a purple 74 challenger "restored" maybe 15 /20 years ago in Kansas. It's a 318 qith some edelbrock performet intake, holley carb and a full stainless x pipe exhaust I made...

I'm in the process of getting it rebuild "goodly" , some guy have done some serious creepy things with the electricity...

Welcome aboard from Washington State USA. I have visited France many times, beautiful country, although I cannot say I am a big fan of Paris...

Here's some pics of it!

I've tig welded the x pipe using 2.5 inch stainless steel (i think it is 304L steel). Sorry for the sound quality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnqkHLnX0JM

The american racing wheels aren't there anymore, i'm with 18 inches wheels know cause i modified the brakes  (front and rear 06 mustang brakes yeah I know, 'stang... but know it brakes!)

Will post pics later when the electricity will be done! Pics are bad in the garage...

Awesome car, beautiful color and sounds mean!

I wouldn't worry about the "stang" brakes, I have 05 Cobra rear calipers on my Cuda.

Thank you!

The fender tag says "special color" and "special order" , can't find the build sheet, the only place I can't search is behind the front seat and I don't want to tear them off  ...
