I purchased it in early summer, 1999. It had 41k miles on it and judging by the dents, dings and scratches eyesight was not the former owner's strong suits.

This was a good car to learn how to do body work. It's not perfect, but I've seen people pay real money for worse and I've learned a lot.

The car's got a poly 318 2bbl. with a push-button trans. No power steering, no power brakes, no AC, no radio, no clock, no windshield washer, not even outside mirrors. But it does have lap belts! Since I brought it home I've had duel exhaust put on, installed a '66 Satellite rear end, installed a tach and did a general tune up, new 16" Cragars with Bf Goodrich's, altitude adjustment with an allignment and I built a console that houses a stereo with speakers so I wouldn't have to cut my near perfect interior.

Next on the list is a 4bbl. and some under hood detailing. We'll see if I can make it through the Atlanta summer with out AC. This car is my daily driver and it really lacks creature comforts. But it sure is fun.

The [1962 to 1965 Mopar Mail] list deserves my heartfelt thanks, what a fantastic resource.

Thanks, Larry!
Starting off with a low mileage car sure helps, but nothing replaces the hard work needed to perform automotive body work. Good job!

And I can see why tou enjoy the daily driving pleasure of this 1964 Dodge. :-)

As for the 1962 to 1965 Mopar Mail List Clubhouse, you are 100% correct. The Clubhouse virtually holds a great bunch of people and provides a wonderful source for information and friendship. You are included in that group of people, of course! :-)
