I went through your thread.  That project is moving along quickly.  My brother has one of those chargers but is currently a heap of rust in the backyard.  Thanks for putting up the detailed pictures.  I took away some great ideas.

Thanks! :-)

Just read your Charger thread, very nice work. I am trying to get my 73 Cuda restomod done and have a 70 Roadrunner sitting in my other shop waiting its turn so your situation feels familiar (except I will retain my 73). For me, the 70 RR, Charger or GTX was/is at the top of my B body desires. I absolutely love the overall style, tall pistol grip shifters, air grabber (RR and GTX) and wood grain dashes (GTX and Charger). My RR will be a bit of a restomod as it is pretty modified already complete with a tilt front end...  :bigsmile: Sounds bad but is actually well engineered. I am going to put a 66 426, a 4 speed (or maybe a Tremec if I can afford it) and a Dana in it.

Sounds like two beautiful cars and love what youre going to do with the runner - someday I hope to build a car with an air grabber - how awesome are they!!

Thanks, I have a pretty full Mopar collection (only took 40+ years..)

The 2 greatest things Mopar ever did was invent and sell the pistol grip shiftier and the air grabber hood. Neither of the other 2 US car companies had anything close. The 70 Chevelle cowl induction hood was half an attempt at making something cool, but no where near the air grabber. My only criticism of it is/was the vacuum system they used; should have gone electric which is what I am going to do  :bigsmile:

Current Mopar
70 Challenger RT 440-6, 73 Cuda (under const)
05 Durango, 99 Dakota, 01 Ram 4x4, 14 2500 4X4, 10 PCP Challenger RT, 01 Viper GTS ACR, 52 B3B w/330 Desoto Hemi, 70 Hemi RR, 61 Jeep FC170
Past Mopars
9 x Challengers. AAR Cuda, 4 RR, 2 GTX, 4 Chargers, etc... (too many to list)
