Hello forum,
Thank you for letting me join the group ! I recently purchased this car from a widow. Her late husband was just starting a full restoration. Overall the car is quite solid but has the normal rusted floor, lower quarters and door rot. This is all original with the 318 and 727. Motor still rolls over so hoping to save and improve that. I know body parts are hard to come by for these years so hopefully we can get this back on its feet by next year. The structure of the car including rockers is still solid. I will be asking some questions in the forum for you experts who have gone through a similar rebuild. The iconic styling of these 66-67 bodies are just plain cool. My father actually purchased a brand new 1966 Dodge that year. He said it was one of the best cars he ever owned.

Cheers!

The car still has the original 318 Poly, 727 trans, interior ( which is shot) and all the body trim. I still have the original top frame and a newer gen with a black rag on it. The sub frame is very solid and no major damage. Just working on Body, and rust repair and intending to save the motor and upgrade to a 4 barrel intake and carb. WE will do some other upgrades like suspension and brakes.
 
Yeah buddy! There she is! Best wishes on the project and keep us posted on progress.
