Bought in eastern Pa, the Dodge hails from Kansas.
The previous owner did 13.5 down the quarter mile the way it is shown here, (the "before" pictures, prior to when I tear it down).
- correct 426 street wedge
- automatic with console with factory tach.
- 3.55:1 rear Sure Grip
- dual exhaust
- power steering
- power brakes
- AM radio with rear speaker and reverb
- black bucket interior
- cop car wheels
This restoration will take a while, but well worth it!
The car is equipped right! It is a great candidate to restore!
You are on target when you say it is "well worth" the time and money to rescue this Dodge!
Good luck with the restoration!
