Yup it’s mine. Testing the waters before winter. I just bought another project and could use the money. If it doesn’t sell, I am going to re do the interior for next spring and enjoy it. Might look to put a lower numerical rear in it. It isn’t much fun to cruise over 50.
Sure thing! It was a 64 426 wedge motor in place of the original 440-6, which was pulled for unknown reasons sometime after its rebuild in 1975. The original was stored in the basement in damp storage and the wrist pins rusted up. The motor had less than 3000 miles on it. I had it rebuilt again...
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and introduced themselves at carlisle. 75 mile round trip without one hiccup- it even keeps cool in 45 minute traffic at 95 degrees out! A lot of little things left to do, but I’m glad to have this V code 4 speed back on the road.
Got the 6 pack set up assembled tonight. I bought this off a board member. Everything looks to be in good shape! I’ll throw it on after breaking in the engine. I posted another photo of the car getting transported to my friend/engine savior.
More to come!
Update: We had to go back into the motor and resize the valves. A cracked retainer saved us from hanging a valve and blowing this thing up. I registered the car in Mopar Carlisle under the barn finds class. Stop by and say hi!
