Chevrolet 6400 Farm Truck at Manns Restoration
This old Chevrolet 6400 stake side farm truck is sitting out behind the shop at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. They acquired the truck a while back and they have plans of making it into a shop truck. There have been discussions about possible putting a more modern chassis underneath it, or possible even making it into more of a suburban style vehicle. It will be a while before this project actually gets underway, but I thought the truck was worth checking out. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Test Drive 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 V8
It's not often that we get to look at a car like this one. It's an original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This beast is one of only 503 Daytona's built and it's in truly immaculate condition. It's still powered by the original 440 V8 4 BBL, factory rated at 375 HP and 480 Lb-Ft of torque. This is one of the famous winged cars, that forced rule changes in Nascar after breaking all the speed records at the time. It's painted in the correct T5 Copper paint and it's riding on a beautiful set of Magnum 500 chrome rims, with white letter tires. This is definitely one of the most collectible Mopar's of all time and one of the most sought after muscle cars of any type. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
