383 four speed that I had right after high school. Bought locally, and I knew the previous owners. I never see a 383 four speed cars at Mopar events, nowadays.

That car looks rough!
I can't wait too see if they can complete an entire restoration by Spring. If they do, I have a car I'll send their way...
What's the name of the shop?

They are just a couple guys who have done several cars. One is a 30 year body shop guy, the other has just done several cars. They are open to doing other cars. I referred another Moparts guy to them, but I don't think he followed through.

They did a fantastic job on a Cobra Torino, without know much about that genre. Also a Chevelle, and some others. PM me if you want more information. I know they have had several people want to get their cars in, but they held a spot for me.

Some more. A buddy owned this a few years while in the Army. He got a kick out of seeing his 101st Arborne sticker still on the bumper.

The engine is scheduled for the shop Monday. Some more work accomplished today. I came by to take the rear end and chrome home and get it out of the way.

Windshield and back glass removed and the K frame dropped. As I said, these guys don't dawdle. They will begin with sheet metal work pretty soon.

Wow. Fast and Quick.
In the process of working on my 70 Challenger convertible. Tearing it down and working on a section at a time.
Your floor boards look like they are in good shape.
How is your firewall and frame rails?

Firewall and frame rails are good. Some scary spots on the frame just front of the control arms. I had a 6 cyl convertible that I was going to swap out a 340 changer drivetrain to- long before that was the thing to do. Had a bunch of rust areas. Sold it to fund my TA resto.

found some scary rust in front frame rails, but these guys are fearless.
Ordered new hinges and a floor pan. I need to get two AMD fenders. These guys plan to be done by the time the Indy Mopar show is happening in March, so I will have to eat shipping and get them delivered?

Who is the Moparts guy who is an AMD dealer? He puts a "contact me for AMD" in his signature of his posts.
