She wants a show car....... sigh.... plus I don't know how not to.....
well its a good thing you know how to do it. you have proof that you put out craftsmanship at a very high level.
Thanks, looks like we are not going to make Prescott plus I have no interest in driving through Phoenix this weekend with the temps cranking up with marginal A/C ;)
You already have a plymouth and a dodge. Thought you'd be looking for a Chrysler for the trifecta!
Damn it.... Oops we did it again.... The wife new car.... Survivor Arizona car found within 10 miles of where the Coronet was discovered..... Now to figure out how to get a 318 stroker in there since they did not have V8's in '63 and changed the firewall in '64 to accommodate.... The difference here is I plan to DRIVE this one home tomorrow night!
mama got a new ride. looks great new build sheet coming up
jim, 63/64 dart gt could be ordered with the 273 in it. now fined the k member from one to fit the 318
‘63 was 170 or 225 only. The firewall needed to be changed to accept the 273 according to allmopar.com
but the 63/64 gt model had a option of the 273.
Neato!! Have you considered putting a turbo on the leaning tower of power?
Or a blower?
Where would the A/C go? You think she will be happy without A/C..... I think not.
Tell her she needs to drive it hard for the a/c to work Looking forward to see your next build coming together!
More research: 273 was not offered till the early '64 models. The GT was the 225. To put a LA in the '63 you need to depress the firewall to allow the distributor to clear and in doing that you bind up the linkage to the wiper so in '64 they added the depression and repositioned the wiper motor. I will need to find a firewall patch and wiper motor/linkage from a '64 and up. The k member will accept either the /6 or LA in these early years. All I need is the steering cross bar with the deeper drop for the oil pan.
Put a BB in, distributor to the front solves the problem...
As far as I can recall, all of the k members were the same up to or thru 69. I took out a 6 cyl from a 65 Dart, and put in a 318 on the same k member. Jim, go to this website and read all about putting a SB in the '63. They make swap kits for a lot of configurations and have a lot of info to read thru. http://engine-swaps.com/Pages/ProductsYear/63.66aBody.html
Reading on a bodies some of the swaps they have kits like said above. Anyway bb is the answer lol
Wow that's a nice one and just need some TLC to bring back to her glory. Looking forward to the progress
