    Whats everyone working on?

    Getting ready for the Winter fun: drop the tank to rebuild the fuel sender; rewire the under-dash; swap out the oem gauges for Dakota Digital system. But... the barn will finally have heat this Winter, so it won't be as painful to work on Nadine.

    Correct screws for gauge and radio bezel mounting?

    It's not your exact car, and you may be past the point where you could use this, but there's an article in Mopar Connection online that's a great tutorial for installing the Dakota package in a B Body...

    Repairing Door Hinge Pillar?

    You may want to check with AMD (Auto Metal Direct) for a repop piece. But I'd try to find a good original piece from a donor car. Something like this...

    WTB Need instrument harness or connector

    I'm in need of the round connector for a non-rally gauge cluster on a '68 Coronet. I could really use a good unmolested harness, but I would settle for just the (female) connector.

    I'm excited for you! I friend of mine just brought home a roached 66 GTO and is dreading the process... I don't get that. I get so excited with a new project that I wake up at night thinking about what I'm going to do next.

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    Thanks Grant. And welcome to FBBO! That's good information. I just came across a great thread over at FABO, that clears up the identification problem: (and, Grant, I see you were a part of that discussion) 69 barracuda 340-s VS Formula-S The cars with the "340-S" emblem on the fender were...

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    Yeah, that was a surprise to me. I was always assumed the "Cuda" name started with the E body.

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    The 67's and 68's had the round badge on the hood. The 69's had a rib running down the center of the hood, so the badge was gone.

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    Ok, a slight revision (I'm still learning)... In '69, there WAS identification on the fender, but is was "340-S" instead of the badge that graces the tail panel.

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    The Formula S had the badge on the lower fenders in '68, but the 69's only had the badge on the right side of the tail panel.

    69 Barracuda "S" value?

    For you guys that might have a good understanding of A-body values: I'm looking for a rough estimate on what this car is worth? '69 Barracuda "S" 340 auto. Already restored. 73K miles. Sorry, that's all I know at this point.

    Looking for engine-decoding info

    Well, it seems the block (or maybe the entire engine) was built in the Windsor plant... hence the GW340P33920517 stamping. The block (or engine) was then shipped to Hamtramck, stamped with the VIN of the car - 1B267250 - and installed. So, the engine was cast/built in November of '70 and...

    Looking for engine-decoding info

    Thanks DK. Yep, GW340P33920517 So far, I know: G = 1971 W = Windsor plant 340 = CID P = Premium fuel 3392 = 11/10/70 build date 0517 = 517th engine built But the other stamping: 1B267250 is the trouble. It's my understanding that the "267250" is the VIN of the original car it was installed in.

    Looking for engine-decoding info

    My 68 Coronet has a 340 from a 1971 model. Does anyone know of a data base/website where I can determine what model my engine came out of? By year and code I've narrowed it down to Barracuda, Challenger, Duster or Demon.

    Looking for good tranny guy in NE Ohio

    Well, preferably a Mopar guy. Yeah, I forgot about BE&A. Thanks. That's a little bit of a drive, but a possibility. No, I haven't bought it yet. Was it on the forum?

    Looking for good tranny guy in NE Ohio

    I'm going to take the plunge and have a Gear Vendors OD installed on the Coronet. I would prefer to have the work done by a solid transmission guy, who has experience with the process. Anyone in Ohio know of a good shop? I'm in the Medina/Wooster area. Thanks.
