A few other odd ball pictures, one of the fan speed switch date. Also I got my rear wheels painted.

I was able to get the inside of the glove box door refinished and put the outer and the inner back together last night and get it on the car. One more step done.

Had a decent day today, got the steering column back in. Also finished up the TTI 3” exhaust that it has taken me about a week in the afternoons to install. Can’t say I’m overly impressed with the fit, but reality is I have bought very little new parts I have been impressed with while working on this car.

Well Saturday was a big day for me with this project, I was finally able to hear it run for the first time. The engine was ran in on dyno and they made about 10 passes before I actually took possession of it, but this was the first time for me hearing it in person and it running in the car. It’s interesting as I think about this car, the last tags that are on it are from 78-79 time frame and it had a 383 4 speed in it at that time. In doing research it was originally sold new at Pioneer Dodge in San Jose, California and before leaving there, the hemi engine, original 4 speed and the Dana 60 had all been swapped out to the 383, 4 speed, and 8 3/4 rear axle. My guess is early 70’s the original parts were removed and it made its way to PA. So we can safely say it has been 45 plus years since a hemi has ran inside the fenders of this car. I’ll try to post a couple videos.

A few floor pan pictures and a one of the seat belt tag on the rear belts. I had the rear seat out so a good time to show how good the floors are in it.

Cool,
I know its an amazing feeling to hear it run. Sounds WICKED.Makes mine sounds like a 318

Gonna be close now to actually feeling how well it pulls thru the gears

I still remember the day the car I now own started for the 1st time. And that was almost 20 years before the reality sit in I was about to own it.
So Ive had a double giggle moment with mine

Tonight venture was getting the front headlamps installed and finishing off the drivers park lamp, installed LED bulbs. First time I have seen all the front lamps in it. Did find one neat ink stamp on the drivers outside headlamp cup, not 100 percent sure the purpose but neat none the less. The next hurdle will be if the lamps will set inside the headlamp bezels! We shall see.
