I'm always blown away when i visit this thread.
Thanks. I am keeping the car. I am hoping it will be finished by summer 2023.Really nice work! I`ll be referring to this thread for detail pics as I just started my `70 road runner resto. I see you are in VT, are you keeping and driving this car next year or do you plan on selling it - I`d love to see it in person?
Looks like you are way up northern VT, I`m in seacoast NH. My road runner is FC7 In-Violet and my Barracuda is EV2 Tor-red - love al the High Impact colors. I think having my road runner done by next summer is pushing it but my Barracuda is a driver. If you are on Facebook please join my club, we have get togethers and cruises - Northeast Mighty Mopar Club | FacebookThanks. I am keeping the car. I am hoping it will be finished by summer 2023.
I also have a matching FM3 Challenger I redid about 5 years ago. I suppose I need an FM3 Charger to complete the set......
We actually do a cruise every year in June that usually starts at Hampton North beach, the past few years the cruise ends at an all Mopar party at a friends house in Ringe.I typically hit Hampton Beach a couple times a year. Would your cruises go down Ocean Blvd?
I love it! I had a couple cars that had those hubcaps. Man are they heavy! Car is beautiful, I saved a 70 RR from the crusher years ago. Got it home and figured out it was panther pink under the blue faded to purple repaint. You've done an amazing job!UPDATE 12/17/2022: Today was the day that I finally put the car back on its wheels. I know some people might not like the tires and wheel covers, but this is the car came from the factory. No turning back now, I paid a lot for those NOS hubcaps and I think it looks pretty nice. This car was originally a dealer demo car from Wilison Chrysler in Toronto, so I like to think that it looked like this in the showroom, at least it will when it's done.
So I have been having trouble with installing the convertible top. I am on my second top. The first one was from Electron Top and it was over 1-1/4 too wide at the rear bow. The one that is on it now is from Kee Top. It fits pretty good, buy I have to deal with these wrinkles on the sides. Chrysler put what they call "stay straps" that run from the rear bow to the well area. the replacement tops don't come with them. Since my original ones were ruined I thought I could get away without installing them. I think I was wrong. I've got some material on order and hope to get this fixed in the next couple weeks.
