    Hellcat killer build

    I'm always amazed at how much heavier the pre-71 cars are vs the 71-later. I'm also going the AX/HPDE route with my '71 Coronet. Bone stock with a 1/2 tank of fuel it was 3478lbs, and 54f/46r weight distribution (it's nice having corner scales). Mine is a 318/904 currently so that makes up...

    My 1971 Road runner

    Scary part is they're 1000lbs lighter than their modern brothers. Good luck with the exhaust, that setup ought to sound great.

    WTB 71-74 Coronet rear glass and window trim needed

    Looking for a rear window (assuming you're willing to ship unless Western Washington local), and the rear window stainless trim. Fine if you only have the trim, and in particular the lower left piece. Thanks!

    SOLD Restored E-Brake Pedal Assembly

    What does it fit?

    Weatherstripping for 4dr Sedan

    1) Door to body, maybe check to see if they're reproduced for the earlier four doors, or the post two doors. 2) I'd look at 71-74 Charger/Satellite two doors. They'd be long, but could be cut down. 3) Again, I'd look to the same group of earlier cars. I have both a '71 Coronet (four door...

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Ok, grille back in... love it. I'll get a better shot when the car is movable, but it's quite a difference. The removed bumper guards help too. Much less "old man car" than before (ya, ya, I know I am one... shhhhhh). Before and after...

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Ok so the last few days I've gotten some more stuff done. I mounted up the new PS pump, ran the lines, and added the Borgeson recommended PS cooler. Pulled the grille out so I can 1) Put in better headlights (Hella E-codes with relays/new wiring, waiting on shipping), and 2) I can repaint it...

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Had a chance to check the dimensions on that particular bearing and the OD is too large for my column. Some more digging found some that may work, it might just be simpler to make a plain bearing out of delrin/bearing bronze though. Will be giving it some thought while I'm relaxing in...

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Thanks, that's awesome... I'll check the dimensions to be sure they're the same as my setup, but if they are that's great!

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Mine is similar, but different. Here's a pic of mine from a similar angle. The shift arm is reversed on mine, and the end of the tube is different. The bushing is probably not a lot different, but definitely attaches differently.

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Ya, I was thinking of making something similar, though maybe from some bearing bronze I have a stick of.

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Been knocking out prep jobs and such before I get further into reassembling suspension. Finished removing the old torsion bars (so small compared to the new ones), cleaned and painted the new front/rear brake rotors, cleaned all the connections on the instrument cluster and replaced all the...

    Time for a show lets see the 71-74's

    Ya, for us West coast types this is rough... in the rust belt it would be a rare find.

    Time for a show lets see the 71-74's

    Ok, I'd have sworn I posted pics of my '71 Coronet in this thread, but looking back to August '23 when I got it, maybe not. I also bought a bunch of parts from a guy, and basically got a '71 Satellite for free (parts were worth double what I paid, without the car). Coronet I bought from a...

    Rear spring rate

    And the two door cars should be lighter... we'll see when I get a chance to get the '71 Satellite I picked up a few weeks ago on the scales.

    Rear spring rate

    Man the earlier cars were a fair bit heavier than the later ones, my '71 Coronet weighs in at 3478 at 1/2 tank, with 1599lbs on the rear. There is a bit of difference in our drivetrains though as mine is an all iron 318/904/8.25/PS/No AC rather than your 440/727/8.75 (I'm guessing there)/PS/AC...

    1971 satellite kinda sorta

    You can get fiberglass, but not metal from what I've found looking at parts for mine.

    1971 satellite kinda sorta

    Fairly certain the wagon/sedan share the same A-pillars and glass, and the 2 door cars are different, same with my '71 Coronet and Chargers. Might be able to modify them to fit, but it won't be a "cut it out and weld it in" type of operation.

    Meet Max the '71 Coronet

    Ok, since our last episode, I've finished the k member and assembled the steering box/idler/lower arms/ball joints/strut rods and got it put under the car (with some help... that thing is heavy). Also couldn't help myself and stuck the adapters and rear wheels on. They'll probably be...

    KYB vs Monroe vs Bilstein?

    Just a plastic cover that slips over the shaft. They have a metal bushing at the top where the shaft fits through. I've used them before and they work fine.
