    I bought this car back in January 2010. I drove it over two hours home after I bought it. It's a 318 car with 904 trans. My dad still has his '69 Road Runner that he bought in 1969. He is the reason for my love and passion for the '69 B-Body. I don't think he's ever gonna realize how crazy I am about his car and since he's remarried and has a teenage son I doubt I will ever own it. I decided to build my own :) Finally started the process of cloning this to a 440 Road Runner This month. First bought a 440 that came out of '77 New Yorker from someone who had gone through the engine and put it a dart. I had him pulled the heads anyway because I want the performance level of and orginal '69 440HP. Here are some pics of the car from last summer. It's getting trunk pan l & r quarters and floors put in next week. I also picked up an 8 3/4 rear that came out of '68 cornet today. I will post pics as I take 'em.

    I'm a complete newbie and know nothing of restoring a car so any advice and ideas are welcome. I've been doing a lot of reading and research but I am still at mercy of whoever does the work since I don't really know much.

    Welcome!! lots of great people here...check out the resto threads, you'll get a lot of visual aids there.

    also, TAKE LOTS PICTURES before tear into it! tag and bag everything...that will save you a lot of headache later when you put it back together.

    Thanks everyone!!!!

    I do intend to change bumpers down the road when the car gets ready for paint. I'm curious how to get the holes filled from the trim out of doors and trunk too?

    Mig weld them then grind, just be careful not to over heat while doing both steps.
