I pulled the fuel tank today, which has never been out of the car. The fuel strap J bolt threads were still covered in factory undercoating. There were no holes in the tank so i may restore the original at some point and install it again. I bought a new replacement to use in the mean time. Here are a few pics of the rear frame rails. I CAN'T BELIEVE this thing was kept in a chicken coop with dirt floors for 20 years....

Awesome!

That masked undercoating area near the shackle looks exactly like a 50,000 mile RR that I own.

sweet find! and don't let the four wheel drums scare you. I've been driving Chargers and road runners with 4 drums since '83, and never had a problem. just R&R, keep adjusted properly and they work fine.

4 drums stop plenty fine.What an awesome car. Very nice

Congrats, my Friend, don't touch the paint! get it lightly polished and that's it.

There was a 68 Survivor in Osawatomie, KS I looked at about 15/16 years ago before chargers took off. Charger red, can't remember interior color, but it was a extremely solid car with similar miles. The owners dad bought it new if I remember right.

I spent some time going through the fuel system yesterday. I replaced the gas tank, fuel pickup, fuel filter, all soft fuel lines, and the fuel pump. I ordered a carb rebuild kit, which should arrive early this week. Next up is a complete brake overhaul and tires.

I rinsed the car off too so I took some pics

I replaced the master cylinderr and all 4 wheel cylinders. My buddy Mark (GY3 here on moparts) was nice enough to rebuild the carburetor for me. He found that it was clean with new gaskets (30 years old but never used) and that the two needles had different diameters and were reversed so the plungers were bound up and didn't work at all. Mark is guessing that the carb was rebuilt and wouldn't run so that's why it was parked! Swapping those different diameter needles may have been the reason for the car being so well preserved!!

I started the car up and it ran nicely but it ran hot so I pulled the radiator and took it to a local shop. The radiator was plugged and had multiple leaks so I had it recored by a local radiator shop. Good radiator sops are getting hard to find, but this was a father and son that are pretty old school. The only thing I didn't like was that they use a glossy black radiator paint so I told them just to leave it unpainted. I ordered some satin radiator paint from Eastwood's and sprayed it yesterday in the back yard. I replaced the water pump and thermostat while I was at it.

Got the radiator, water pump, and thermostat installed Saturday afternoon and took my two oldest daughters out for the first cruise. It ran and drove great! Can you tell I like to drive Mopar products?

It's been awhile since I've updated this thread. Replacing the alternator was the last mechanical fix I've made. I had a local guy polish the original paint for me, clean/treat the vinyl top, and clean the interior.

Here are a couple early pics to show the contrast. Some better finished pics coming in a few minutes.

It's like you walked onto a used car lot in ~'72 and bought this car. It's that clean!
