    WTB Wanted please a 727 manual VB

    I think I have a 1960 727 VB, I will look for you Edward? I was going to put an auto trans in my 413ci 1962 D200 truck, but don't want to cut out the crossmember so I found a later 5-speed manual box now... Best wishes from Limey John UK

    WTB Wanted please a 727 manual VB

    Many thanx for your replies. I have a 1971 Plymouth GTX. Its the first year of the 'wide-bearing' front drum, which is nice. I have raced many times with early 'pre 71' transmissions with some drum saga's lol... But after seeing several drum explosions, both here and in the USofA, I'm going...

    modern max wedge powerhouse

    Supercool! Nothing says 60's 'POWERHOUSE' more than a 'PERIOD' max-wedge intake lol...:thumbsup::usflag::luvplace: I'm gonna be using this Indy style intake on my 62-413ci maxie... This one on my 512 maxie

    How much torque can a 833 handle.

    Nice info Guys! I got two four speed cars and they both have 18 spliners but one has an 8-3/4! I guess you can break anything if you try hard enough lol... Only ever seen a few 4 speeds running fast on track and the gear changes sounded painful at best! Must learn how to 'power-shift' so I'm...

    modern max wedge powerhouse

    On the matter of camshafts. I like my old school .650 crane roller from the 90’s lol. It ran good in my 452 iron headed motor with 13 to 1 comp. Will be using that in my 511ci for street strip work. Not sure if pump gas will work for me, but gas prices here are eye watering in the UK!

    modern max wedge powerhouse

    What heads are you running bluefish? I am doing a 511ci for my 71-GTX with flat tops and wanted to stay factory iron. I had a set of Eddy maxwedge Victors but sold them. Shame really as I had an Indy cross ram too but decided it was not period doh. Gonna use the Indy cross ram on my 62 max...

    -71 B body stiffening

    Nice work beeper! I have a 71 GTX myself. Those look like factory GTX strengthening plates and torque boxes? Have you fitted them yourself or did your car come with them? Obviously its a lengthened E-body floorpan for the 71 B-body...(hope thats right)? The 512ci engine in the 'avatar'...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    I think you may have missed the point? When UK folks are buying parts from Ebay.com, this requires the sellers to sell OVERSEAS! We can't do detailed restoration, without parts for our cars... All we can do is strip them, paint them, and then replace all the worn out 50 years old parts...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    Good question 440-4 speed dude! I would rather not 'ever' see the Charger 500 again! Once they is gone, they is gone forever... My next plan is to win the lotto and buy a hemi Roadrunner! Or GTX, whatever my million dollars will get me lol... Its better to have loved and lost, than never...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    OOPS I forgot to say why the fender was $1200? It was off a Fast and Furious 5 car which should be a 70 but is in fact a 69... But the Studio's could not find any 70 cars for the F&F-5 film so used a 69 car instead. If Vin Diesel finds out its not a 70 car, he will be FURIOS! So I suppose you...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    I have done worse things... I once sold a rust free 69 Coronet sixpack Superbee for £2500... These prices will return one day (maybe) as 102 octane gas is now £11 a gallon here in the UK! Won't be driving Mopars anymore just polishing them and telling tall stories of the 1980's when 'good...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    Just in case you was wondering? I sold the 1969-Charger 500 for £30,000 ($42,000). Rust free 4-speed dana car with numbers matching 440ci. (one of 25) Yep I kept the fender, it has more sentimental attachment to me, than the Charger lol... ps I found a correct colour green fender at a UK...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    The turning point was the fender saga! After seven trips to Cali and Nevada 04-10, I couldn't find a decent one... I was going to get a repro AMD and then decided to buy one form a Cali Moparts dealer. $1200 was his price and I just freaked out. But he relented and let me have it for $600 the...

    Where do we stand with Moparts?

    Many thanx for the replies Guys. Its been a crazy few weeks here with three storms in a week and the threat of Global war! The bulk of my Ebay purchases for 15 years+ has been by Ebay USA. I have done many trips to the USA to buy stuff personally, but this adds thousands to my purchases DOH...
