    Aftermarket stereo's in a 71 B body

    Even when one radio is active and the other is dormant, there is still speaker-level electrical current flowing into the electronics of the radio that's turned off. That could cause damage to one (or both) of the radios' output amplifiers. You may want to think about installing an A/B switch...

    Do I have factory or conversion power steering?

    I'm in need of a new steering gear box on my '72 Roadrunner. It definitely is power steering, but I can't tell if I need to replace a factory power steering box or a conversion P/S box. I got out my production broadcast sheet to see what my Bird originally came with. Does the absence of any...

    Gear shifter idiosyncrasies.

    Since I'm no expert on shifting linkages, where exactly is the adjustment for it?

    Gear shifter idiosyncrasies.

    My '68 Plymouth Belvedere's auto-tranny has two issues and I'm wondering if they're related. The reverse/back-up light doesn't work at all when the shift lever (on the tree) is put in Reverse. And, sometimes the car will not start when in Park, so it's necessary to put the shift lever in...

    Totally new Mopar guy question...

    Personally, I would do exactly what a lot of the other guys already mentioned. Get your Charger in optimum working and running order first. Then address the aesthetics (body, paint, trim, interior, etc.). If you're a first-time Mopar or high performance car owner, you might want to leave the...

    What's this part called??

    Hey Marv, looking at your profile avatar I can't tell if car is a '71 or '72. (Or if it's a Satellite or Roadrunner.) Where can I see some bigger pics of it? From what I can see, it's beautiful.

    What's this part called??

    Yep, that's what I was looking for. Mainly the springs and the S-shaped "door stops." Thanks!!

    What's this part called??

    On my '72 Roadrunner, it's the spring-loaded hand that holds the door open when entering or exiting the car. Mine is no longer doing its job and needs to be replaced. Does it have an actual name and where might I find a replacement? (I already checked Classic Industries with no luck so far.)

    How Many Mopars Do You Currently Own?

    You know your TV cars. Yep, it's an exact duplicate of the first season Adam-12 cruiser, right down to the license plate numbers. (Some of the idiots out there say, "Hey, there's Barney Fife's car." :screwy:)

    New guy in Prescott, AZ

    Hi, 50 years ago when I returned from my tour in Vietnam, I treated myself to a brand new car: a 1972 Roadrunner with a 340 and auto trans, in a nice Sky Blue color. (And of course, I'm still kicking myself in the butt for ever selling it.) Over the recent years I've been searching for...
