1973 Roadrunner Resto Chapter X

The Scab receives more attention: the right door and trunk lid get putty sprayed on them (3 coats). Next is the filler primer (aka sanding primer). http://flickr.com/tm_artists/sets

1973 Roadrunner resto XI: the 440
Temporary installation of the 1971 440 into the car to consolidate the parts, stuff and 'bits.' The engine will be pulled soon, cleaned, painted, re-gasketed and mated to the numbers matching Fireball Automatics-rebuilt 727 the installed for good. Chivvies and Frauds beware. ((Sensitive types and kids note there is a lot of swearing in the video - but not my me, heh.))

71 Plymouth GTX Startup
1971 Plymouth GTX that I've been working on getting back on the road. We got it as a "almost running" car. "Almost running" was somewhere between very generous and flat out false. We've ended up replacing all the bushings in the suspension and rebuilding the engine and the brakes. Now it's getting to the point that it's driveable and hoo-boy is it a hoot. Always fun to do the no tag, no muffler shakedown run :) Here's some specs: 440cu (7.2L) V8 with 727 Torqeflite reverse manual valve body; 8 3/4 rear end with 3.91 gearset. All going out to a pair of 15x10 Centerline rims with BF Goodrich 295/50R15 tires. Still not sure if we're going to be putting in the 4-speed or keeping the brutal automatic. Such a fun car. My little camera can't capture the amount of noise this thing puts out. It currently is just running around an old set of 2.5" pipes with no mufflers that end somewhere under the rear seats. Can't get enough Mopar!
