It is a 383 4-speed car.No power steering or brakes.Pretty no frills car.Fender tag was gone when I got it,numbers drivetrain was also long gone.So I am going to customize it.I will keep the body stock with the exception of a lift off hood I love those! the car will look factory with subtle upgrades for driveability safety etc.It has the 11.75 disc upgrade that I will post pictures of in a few days.This weekend I am doing the rear brakes.Rounded up all the stuff I nned for some 11 inch drums that will complete the rear.Lots more pics to come

Looks like you are coming along very nicely and I think it's great that you are doing this car to your specifications. Since the original drive train is gone, you don't have the fender tag and I assume you don't have the build sheet either, none of the "purists" should beat up on you.

I built a '68 Barracuda to my specifications and desires and I just had my NM RR restored to Almost OE specifications and building the Barracuda was A LOT more fun.

Have fun with the build and keep the pictures of your progress coming. What color on the exterior and interior?

I thought about doing the red stripe,but there is another black Bee that runs around here that has the red stripe.I was going to paint it silver like member BeeQuick's Bee that is the car that inspired me to get a Bee instead of a Charger.But I don't want to be a copycat either.You don't think a silver stripe would look good?I can;t remember ever seeing one so hopefully that will set me apart

How about red reflective?? Looks killer especially when the light hits it at night.You could also definitely do a silver reflective and any good car graphics place could make it for you.Phoenix car graphics can do it.It's the difference between something that just lays there and something that POPS!!My silver car went to Missoula Montana where it lives the pampered life,no more John Force burnouts or drag racing. Kinda makes me sad and I was thinking of doing another very similar out of a coronet this time but they are hard to find in any kind of good shape.

And the passenger side could not get a real good angle.You can see we cut off the quarter extensions probably could have used em but got new ones instead.I would have took pictures but he working to damn fast!You can see the patches we made from new amd pieces.





Here is a before with everything intact.According to the prior owner a tire came apart after hitting some metal and hit the floor hard.This is the only problem with the entire floor.





another angle

Here is the passenger side quarter skin welded on.I have pics of test fitting and stitch welding but for some reason I cant get them to offload of my camera.Anyone might know why?If they wont I'm going to be pissed.I already lost all my disassembly pics The quarter skins are goodmark I bought these dirt cheap and they really are not to bad.AMD would have been better but I got these almost for free.My body guy says they should not need a whole lot to block out.

Making great progress there! Black is my favorite. It's hard to get right too, but if your painter goes the extra mile, it could look like this:

Well not a lot of progress but while the suspension is out again I repainted everything.The first time I did it I knew nothing of paint or quality of paint so it got the krylon makeover not the most durable.So like a crazy person I redid it.The paint that is on there is custom mixed sherwin williams Industrial paint to be a pretty close match to Black phosphate.I think It turned out good much more durable as well.Hope to get the car off the rotisserie soon.

Got the drivers side quarter on this one did not fit quite as well as the passenger side.Required a little finesse to get it on properly but not to bad.Almost to the really fun part blocking and filling and blocking and blocking did I mention blocking?My body guy has been great with letting me help and teaching me about body work.I am more in his way than helping but I'm learning and can say I helped

Here is another small step.Finished the vent box.turned out nice,hit it with 0000 steel wool then washed real well used sem adhesion promoter and sem landau black.This stuff is great!It is very close to the original platic.Another good tip from here on moparts cleaned the metal part with a dremel and small wire wheel.Hit the whole thing with satin clear.Also had all the hardware done in silver cad.



sem products,I really like there products.

here are some more shots of the sem bed liner.Used ths all under the car and here where everyone will probably freak the interior floors,inside of the doors,inner fenders,trunk everywhere.This stuff is an awesome sound deadener and heat barrier.Took a ride in a car done this same way.The doors sound so solid when shut and is super quiet inside.

Well finally doing some work again Instead of going with a lift off hood I decided to use a super clean flat hood I purchased from a fellow moparts member and make it look like a lift off style hood.I spent a week measuring and remeasuring,and another week getting the stones to actually start cutting.I decided to go this route instead of the fiberglass for two reasons the first is this will be a driver did not want to worry if it was windy and the hood needed to come off,the second was cost I am only in this setup $200 where as I would have been almost $700 for the fiberglass with shipping.Here are a few pics more to come soon.

I believe e-Bodies have trouble with the frame connectors interfering with the e-brake cable.

You and I think alike. My plans are to do the same thing on both of my cars. Of course getting them running first is a higher priority.

I finally scored the engine for this car!I have been looking for almost a year these damn new hemi's sure bring a premium around here.This beauty is from a 2004 Durango paid a little more than I wanted at a $1000 but I cannot find one near here for anything close with these miles.So I pulled the trigger,I pulled everything I could I took the entire wiring harness computer ac lines everthing pretty excited to be working on this car again!

As I posted above at the rate I'm going it going to be forever but one big step down.

Well after a long break it's time to finish this car. I got burned out on cars and needed to do other things but I love this car and it needs to be done. So I had Stephan Fournier do my wiper motor with some custom touches looks sweet.

Got a little more done. Took the nasty stock headlight buckets and soaked them in evaporust, then hit with 0000 steel wool looks pretty good also got trim rings polished. Moving forward is good.

Got a little more done headlight buckets are in, I must say the adjusters were a royal pain to install but looks good. Also went with hydroboost after installing in my Challenger last year I'll never have another old car without it. Got the firewall brake line in as well.

Did you use the same headlight buckets? I discovered an issue with mine when putting the headlights in, because I couldn't get some to line up right (the flutes in the glass). I mixed up a few because I used a different front fender on the car, and the buckets got mixed up. Took me a while to figure out the orientation when putting it all back together, and apart, and back together, and apart, and back together again!

yes they are the ones that came with these fenders. I did not know they were side specific or hi-lo specific until I went to install them. But only had to install once

Since this car now is fuel injected I decided to use a Tanks inc. tank. Pretty nice quality matches the factory tank pretty well, except obviously the recess for the pump and sender. These have internal baffles and are not much more than a factory replacement tank.

Decided long ago this car was getting a/c. Went with a classic auto air kit. Had to modify the firewall pad a little but install was pretty straightforward. Now I need to get the dash finished.

I went back and forth trying to decide to paint the dash or not. I decided to have it powder coated. It turned out sweet. Took them a bunch of photos of stock dashes they got the sheen spot on even got "some" oe style texture.
