    Hello fellow gear heads. I enjoy this forum, so I figured I’d join the fun! I’ve included a few pics, but not sure of the license plate exposure rules, so I won’t show some full frontal and rear shots. I bought her in ‘83 for $1000 with the original 383/727 combo. Also had a 3.23 sure grip, ps/manual drums, and a non original air grabber hood that didn’t function. I’ve included the pic of the brown car she once was. Now it’s got a poorly built 496”, Frank Luppo built 727, and around a 3000 rpm dynamic converter, 3.54 Dana 60, frame tied, front and rear sway bars, slap stik out of a ‘71 Challenger, and (gasp) front buckets out of a Nissan 300z, or something like that. It’s set up for handling but had a best of 11.49@117 with a 1.65 60’ through the mufflers. I’ll be asking some advice of you folks in the future I’m sure, cheers, 73F4A7CB-FBDC-4AED-9D1B-7566CF9E7DAB.jpeg 30285D72-0F16-4DC5-8FAE-85A8D5D06AF1.jpeg 831FACD5-0C4A-4B59-AFAC-56DF4B255E89.jpeg D5F80CB8-8D09-48C9-8F43-76DE06E49DE1.jpeg 1ABE8670-F3C3-4825-A635-144EA9B077A4.jpeg 1D5E1B83-53CA-409B-BE44-FC7F64EF6B9B.jpeg 9CDA3809-30E4-40B5-BB6D-1B580AD0046D.jpeg 73C6E75C-EFB5-40BA-A34D-91C1A33D0061.jpeg B5BD0AED-EA38-47B5-ADC1-A84B59148C33.jpeg 5799708D-41B1-49CF-B9E6-F13387B231FD.jpeg 73F4A7CB-FBDC-4AED-9D1B-7566CF9E7DAB.jpeg 30285D72-0F16-4DC5-8FAE-85A8D5D06AF1.jpeg 831FACD5-0C4A-4B59-AFAC-56DF4B255E89.jpeg D5F80CB8-8D09-48C9-8F43-76DE06E49DE1.jpeg 1ABE8670-F3C3-4825-A635-144EA9B077A4.jpeg 1D5E1B83-53CA-409B-BE44-FC7F64EF6B9B.jpeg 9CDA3809-30E4-40B5-BB6D-1B580AD0046D.jpeg 73C6E75C-EFB5-40BA-A34D-91C1A33D0061.jpeg B5BD0AED-EA38-47B5-ADC1-A84B59148C33.jpeg 5799708D-41B1-49CF-B9E6-F13387B231FD.jpeg 73F4A7CB-FBDC-4AED-9D1B-7566CF9E7DAB.jpeg 30285D72-0F16-4DC5-8FAE-85A8D5D06AF1.jpeg

      Welcome to FBBO. This is the best Mopar site around.
      And my Coronet came those same turbine rims when I bought it - now wearing Magnums.

        40 miles North of San Francisco, little town called Inverness, now a tourist destination. I just didn’t know the etiquette on license plates, wether to let be shown or not. I guess since I’m not doing a burnout on public streets I can show them

            Novato huh! That’s one of my favorite towns, easy to get, only 5 stop signs between! We don’t get much fog like we used too however...
