Here is a crown jewel of any collection: A restored, clean, numbers matching, all original sheetmetal Dodge Charger Daytona. A product of the 1960's, the Daytona stands head and shoulders up on nearly every other car built in its time in stature, looks and desirability.
Outside you'll find V2 Hemi Orange Poly in its correct shade, laid down expertly and rubbed out to a glass smooth finish. Like many other Chrysler colors, there's a luminescent quality thanks to very fine gold metal flake throughout, and it's dazzling. Inferior paint jobs and older restorations are more often dull and without the gold glow, and the difference is amazing. The white stripe on the tail, and the correct, original road wheels and Goodyear redlines give the car a very classy, sleek and unified look.
The interior has a nice mix of new reproduction and original parts. New Legendary seat covers on the rebuilt seats, a new headliner and new carpeting augment the original, un-cracked dash pad and excellent original door pads and panels. New sill plates add shine along with new door handles and re-chromed armrest bases. The original center console shifter wears a fluted shift knob, the gauges were refaced, while new dash bezels run from one end to the other. We added a very cool restored wood grain sport steering wheel as a finishing touch. All switches and buttons work as they should, and the car's a pleasure to drive with the smooth, light power steering and reassuring brakes working with the high torque mill up front.
The trunk floor is original and clean, and is covered by a new mat. Look underneath to find floor pans that were completely stripped and painted black during the restoration, along with new Exhaust, fuel and brake systems. This is a car which drives as well as it looks.
The engine sits in a restored bay with all of its original parts, as well as all new mechanicals and other wear items. That's the original wiper motor, air cleaner, carburetor, Exhaust manifolds and more. There's a reproduction battery, new wire set, new reproduction heater and radiator hoses along with the original radiator and new battery cables. There's an electronic ignition system and a reproduction ballast resistor on the firewall connected to a reproduction engine wiring harness. The car starts and runs better than new, shifts well and tracks straight.
In the collector car market the Daytona needs no introduction: It's the millionaire playboy in the center of attention. It's the platinum bar on top of a pile of tarnished silver coins. Few cars are as popular as they are polarizing, and that simply adds to the car's cache. Beautiful in execution, numbers matching, original sheet metal, fully inspected, Galen documented and running flawlessly this car is a topper in nearly any collection on earth.

132395 / 1969 Chevy Camaro Z/28
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7ydc9os
This stunning Lemans Blue Z/28 is not only matching numbers throughout, but also includes rare and desirable upgrades like a real JL8 rear end with disc brakes and a correct date-coded Crossram intake with dual quads. If you're going into battle on a road course, this is the weapon you use.
This is a real code X33 Z/28, but look closer, and you'll also find that it's beautiful and accurate. The Lemans Blue is flashy, no doubt about it, but in a car that moves like this, that's no sin. Someone invested heavily in the bodywork, and it looks straight and clean from any angle. Good gaps suggest that they took their time putting this Camaro together, and even the rear spoiler fits snugly to the quarter panels. Paint is clearly two-stage urethane, and the SS stripes have been painted on, which always looks great because the badges don't interrupt the lines. There's a genuine GM cowl induction hood feeding the dual four-barrels underneath, and the front and rear spoilers are part of the D80 package that makes these cars look so right. The final touch is a set of pinstripes outlining the wheel openings, which match the primary stripes and tie the whole car together nicely.
Most Camaro fans will look under the hood and be delighted to find that Crossram intake atop the original, numbers-matching 302 block. A pair of matched and dated Holley carburetors feed the engine, and you can check the numbers on the intake for yourself—it's the real deal. There's a GM offroad camshaft living in the block, and the engine snarls and barks like a real competition piece, especially with that chambered Exhaust system. If you're a numbers guy, you can have a field day with this car, because it's full of date-code correct components.
The high-winding small block is backed by its original Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission. Out back is not just a 12-bolt with a disc brake kit, but a correct QX code JL8-spec rear end with the correct rotors, calipers, and hardware, along with a set of 3.73 gears on a Posi limited slip. As I mentioned, there's a chambered Exhaust system that sounds amazing, especially at 6000 RPM and new Rally wheels wear Goodyear Wide Tread GT tires.
The standard blue interior is anything but ordinary, and calling it standard does a disservice to the guys who designed it. The bucket seats wear correct reproduction covers that are the right shade of blue—not too light, not too dark, and with just a hint of metallic, and the door panels and dash pad match almost exactly. New carpets on the floor are protected by matching blue bowtie-logo floor mats, and this car is so fresh that there's still plastic in the foot wells to protect the carpet. The trunk offers a new mat, full-sized spare, and a complete jack assembly.
Fresh off a complete nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration, this Z/28 is put together the way many of us would have spec'd our own if were knew then what we know now. Disc brakes are almost mandatory for a car with this Camaro's performance envelope, and the correct components used in this one are probably worth a fortune. And while there are reproduction Crossram intakes out there, this one sports a correct GM piece with date-coded carburetors, taking it up a notch above cookie-cutter cars out there. Details are well done, and the restorer definitely did his homework when it came to duplicating the factory production marks and techniques. Like many of the more unusual Camaros RK Motors Charlotte has featured in the past, this one seems destined not to stay for long—they never do. Call today!

132408 / 1967 Plymouth Belvedere HEMI GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cp7ta56
Thanks to a thorough and meticulous six year restoration, this 1967 GTX Convertible HEMI is a magnificent car in every way. Starting with a rust free, low mile car, this GTX was disassembled down to a bare body, with the doors, hood, deck lid and fenders removed for refinishing. Over the next five years, more than $50,000.00 was spent to transform the GTX body into a perfectly straight masterpiece, with perfect panel gaps and amazing black paint.
Every square inch of the exterior of this GTX was restored or replaced. Check out the front and rear bumpers, the door handles, side mirror, hood scoop bezels, fender-mounted turn signals and the tail light bezels--all of these chrome items were re-plated to show quality standards. The anodized aluminum headlight bezels, grill and tail light panel were all restored to the highest standards. All of the exterior stainless steel, including the wheel lip moldings, was carefully polished and restored to better than new standards. The NASCAR style gas cap was replaced with a B/E & A Specialties high quality reproduction unit. As well, new marker lights, reverse lights and new emblems were sourced and installed. You can't have a blinding perfect body without perfect glass, so a complete new glass set was ordered and installed, along with new window felts, weather-strips, seals, body plugs and grommets.
Carefully open the perfectly aligned hood and staring you in the face is a massive chromed 1967 Street HEMI air cleaner and two equally massive original, restored HEMI valve covers. The vintage HEMI block was torn down and rebuilt. After the engine was assembled, it was expertly tuned and balanced. In all respects, this is a brand new vintage 426 HEMI engine, with correct heads, pistons, rods and crank. Present are two correct 1967 HEMI carburetors, a correct intake, correct Exhaust manifolds, correct water pump, correct alternator and correct power steering crank pulley. Additional details abound: correct reproduction battery and positive/negative battery cables; reproduction washer bottle; correct restored 26" radiator; correct hoses, clamps and plug wires. A Classic Auto Air system is neatly bolted to the front of the engine and you'll also notice a correct power steering system and an MPC power brake system.
Moving on to the underside of the GTX, the entire front suspension was blasted, and restored. The rear suspension was also blasted and repainted, with new shocks posted at all four corners. A new fuel tank, along with new fuel lines, new brake lines and new rubber hoses were installed. Underneath the car you'll spot a brand new Keisler Tremec TKO 500 5-speed manual transmission along with a brand new slip yoke, cross member, reverse light assembly, bell-housing, clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing. The brand new balanced drive-shaft feeds an equally brand new Strange Dana 60 axle, with a 3.54 posi gear-set. The GTX rolls on four brand new BFGoodrich P225/70R14 red-line radials mounted to four brand new Magnum 500 road wheels with center caps.
Not a single part of the interior of this GTX went un-restored. All of the following was sourced as new: four door panels; two door handles; four window cranks; six seat covers, six seat foams; center console; center console top plates and hardware; pistol grip shifter; two kick panels; rear seat GTX emblem. Every single piece of chrome in this interior was re-plated to show standards. The original 1967 seat-belts were expertly restored and show as better than new. The original instrument cluster was disassembled and rebuilt and reinstalled into the beautiful re-painted dash, capped by a restored dash pad. Every dash knob and bezel was re-plated. The original AM/FM radio was rebuilt by Chet Greenwood. The Classic Auto Air system is expertly installed and is activated using the factory heater controls, immediately flooding the cabin with cool air on hot summer days or nights. To cap off the stunning interior, a brand new black convertible top with rear glass window was expertly installed on to the restored convertible top hardware.
This HEMI powered triple black convertible, with a pistol grip 5-speed, power brakes, power steering and air conditioning is the kind of car that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
132407 / 1970 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/czmuwrh
This fully documented 1970 AAR 'Cuda features 100% matching numbers, a high-quality restoration, and is painted my personal favorite color, Burnt Orange Metallic. Expertly applied over a fully restored 'Cuda body, the paint is dazzling and it's a good thing the AAR comes with a blacked-out hood, otherwise you'd have a hard time driving it on a sunny day. A proper AAR decal package, including strobe stripes and All American Racers chevron on the rear quarters, has been installed. The blacked-out rear spoiler matches the hood and ties the whole car together nicely, with the result being a car that looks every bit the part of a race-ready piece.
AARs received their own unique powerplant, a 340 cubic inch small block topped by three two-barrel carburetors. While all that carburetion might seem like overkill on a small block, the result is a car that loves to rev and never seems to run out of breath. That big air cleaner draws fresh, cool air from the functional hood scoop, and force feeds the Holleys underneath. The fender tags are reproductions, but the originals are included as part of the documentation package, and no liberties have been taken in their content. And in case you didn't catch it before, this is the original, numbers-matching engine.
Underneath, this car is incredibly clean with floors that have been finished like the rest of the body. The original 4-speed manual transmission spins an 8.75-inch rear full of easy-cruising 3.55 gears. The AARs received a special side-exiting Exhaust setup, and this one has an accurate system that doesn't look cobbled together like so many muffler shop specials. A new gas tank hangs out back feeding fresh lines, and the brake system has been fully rebuilt at all four corners. The finishing touch is a set of handsome Rallye wheels wearing staggered-size Goodyear Polyglas GT tires.
The interior is also as correct as the body, done in black vinyl with high-back buckets as original. If you need any additional proof of the 340s high-RPM proclivities, look no further than the original 6500 RPM tachometer, and believe me, nothing sounds more amazing than a V8 running at high speeds. The buckets feature new seat covers, there are fresh carpets on the floor, and overhead the headliner is taut and wrinkle-free. As a performance car, there's no weight-adding console, and it looks pretty butch with the shifter just sticking out of the transmission tunnel like that. Under the rear spoiler, you'll find a nicely finished trunk with a new mat and a correct space-saver spare complete with inflator bottle and a full jack assembly.
The AAR might be the most collectable of the small block Mopars. With a fascinating story behind them, they were a cool experiment from a time when automakers were willing to try almost anything to improve their performance credentials. They're also fabulous cars to drive, with that lightweight V8 under the hood, handling is exceptional, and those three deuces make a sound like nothing you've ever heard before. This one is beautifully restored in a very cool period color and it's a combination that always attracts a lot of attention here in the showroom. Look at prices on Boss 302s and Camaro Z/28s lately, and you'll understand why the AAR is so highly sought. Call today!
Generator to Alternator Coversion
Removing a generator and installing a alternator. Any questions i can try to answer.
The Conversion with an Alternator
An alternator conversion is slightly more complicated than generator conversion, but it's still pretty straightforward. (Again, all parts are available from Patrick's Antique Cars)
1.Disconnect the battery.
2.Remove the 6V generator.
3.Mount the Alternator. Brackets are available from various manufacturers.
4.Use a "DA Plug" which allows you to eliminate the old voltage regulator. Attach the short wire to the alternator post. Attach the long DA wire to the ignition switch so it is powered only when the switch is on.
5.Remove the voltage regulator, and connect the BATT wire to the wire that previously ran to the generator. Attach this to the alternator post (along with the short DA wire).
6.Replace the 6V Coil with a 12V Coil. Use a coil with an internal resistor or install an ignition ballast resistor in the wire between the coil and the ignition switch.
7.Replace all light bulbs. Don't forget dash/instrument lights and turn signal indicators.
8.Replace all flashers and relays.
9.Install the above listed Gas Gauge Voltage Reducer on the rear of the gauge.
10.Install the above listed Accessory Voltage Reducer in the wire between the heater and heater switch.
11.Make sure all other accessories are 12-volt ready.
12.Reconnect the Battery and you're done!
