Looks like fun! up Love the old Indiana plate, wish they would have kept the designation on the plates, it was always cool to see where people were from. work

What Rhinodart is referring to is the 53 at the beginning, which immediately designates the County. As a LEO it was a great tool, especially if a car left a scene. If a witness could get the county designation, and it was from a neighboring county, we could anticipate possible escape routes and intercept them.

Now with so much revenue for all the specialty tags, there is no longer a unique designation on the numbers.

Yes going beck to FK5 and vinyl top. I sold it to a friend at one point. In the mid 80's before the rage caught on, he repainted it white to match the Vanishing Point ride. Got a lot of attention when it was first painted. Now its going back to original, other than I am really tempted to make the interior burnt orange, rather than black.

I am also really struggling with putting a shaker system on it.

The crew is working around the back window. was looking kind of scary with the rear trim in place. It will likely need a new dutchman panel.

Santa came a week or so late, but with the new sheet metal, it's full steam ahead.

A little bit more sanding to begin repair on the rear window...

Entire core support, proceed with caution. Maybe just replace the rusted part by the battery and leave the rest original.

Be sure to use the original upper radiator core support. It has the partial vin number stamped in it from the factory.

White top or black? K5 with a white top is pretty sharp but black will do. wink Can't go wrong with a shaker. up
My sister-in-law had a '70 Challenger SE, 383-4v, auto, ac, ps/b, K5 with white top and burnt orange interior (early 80s). I wanted it bad but she wouldn't sell it. Several years later my wife and I drove up to her parents house in time to see a guy driving off in it. She had bought a Prelude and sold (practically gave it away) the Challenger to help pay for it. "I forgot that you wanted to buy it." eyes

It is originally a black top with black stripe. I have been thinking about going white.

Plenty of pics coming. The entire front end had to be replaced. They are going to be getting it on a rotisserie pretty soon. Then the quarters will be replaced.
