Thanks! It's been a lot of fun. The first 40 miles were spent doing 30-40mph and it's a joy to drive. Since it has been reliable, I finally ventured onto the highway for the first time and if I go 55mph or faster it runs hot. When I slow down it cools off quickly so I think my exhaust is so restricted, it's forcing the exhaust back into the engine. It's 2 into one exhaust with one solitary glass pack....so I guess new exhaust is up next!!

Been a while since I have been in Newton! wave Check the lower radiator hose and see if collapses when accelerating, seen this a few times. Just have someone stab the accelerator when you are looking at the hose in your driveway. wink

It has been a long time since you've been here-maybe 4 years already??? I will check the radiator house out-thanks for the suggestion!

Man, that's the kind of find that most of us only get to dream of. Congrats!

I love what you've done to keep it original. Thanks for posting, it gives the rest of us hope that there are more out there waiting for us to find them... thumbs

Great find, great story.....looks like a keeper!!

I'm a fan of discs too, though the drums are perfectly suitable for the driving you plan to do.

Beautiful Charger. I really like how you are bringing it back to life and preserving it a the same time.
