About this Mopar:

This project started out with a running, driving, licensed 1968 Charger R/T that was my daily driver for several years. Then I decided that it would be a good idea to take it apart and cherry it out...over a decade into it so far. Painting it factory (SS1) Sun Fire Yellow. Since this is real XS number matching Charger I'm going to be gentle with the mods. Mostly bolt on goodies that any Mopar purest wouldn't have a duck fit about when I eventually sell the car. Had to replace the typical areas on these Chargers, trunk floor and extensions, quarters and lower rear valance as well as the front aprons. Floor was remarkably solid only requiring a couple of small patches around the toe boards. Frame rails are solid as well as the torsion bar cross member. Pretty much cancer free now.

That's when the endeavor started. I entrusted this restoration shop in Texas to do the work and well... it went sideways like so may others. After having to move a couple of times I'm getting the chance to move this forward. All the hard work is done, paint, assembly and finally get the ole girl back on the road for some long deserved burn outs...
 
New bearings, wiring and crush capsules some lipstick and boom a brand new 50 yr old steering column.
Walnut steering wheel doesn't hurt either...
