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.

Our fifth baby arrived last week. Her first ride home was in the survivor 69 Charger....of course! My amazing wife and daughter are doing well.

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

Christmas Eve Day was a rough day. It was such a nice day that I was determined to take the 1969 Charger out for a short drive. I was on a four lane blacktop and at the intersection ahead, a truck was on my left and he was signaling to turn right and drive north (opposite direction). As he pulled out, a late model GMC Sierra behind him pulled out at the same time. The young guy who was driving, decided to gun it across all 4 lanes of traffic. Because of the truck between us, I couldn't see him and he couldn't see me. His Sierra slammed into my front left fender and our vehicles' back ends swung around and clapped together. I slid sideways into the ditch. I hit the steering wheel and am bruised/beat up but I walked away, which I am grateful for. I have a wonderful wife and 5 children that need me; so I feel pretty lucky. That being said, the old Charger did well. I was doing 55mph and I'm not sure how fast the other guy was going be he was in a hurry.
