Hi Folks! I have a 1970 Road Runner with the following original options: Air Grabber, 383, 4 Speed, Hemi Suspension, 3.55 Sure Grip 8 3/4 rear, heavy duty cooling, light group. It came with manual steering and manual drum brakes. Original colors were Limelight with a black bench seat interior, although it is currently painted yellow. The car did not have a radio when built. If you want to check out some of the history of the car and my work to get it back on the road, check here: http://www.forbbodiesonly.com/moparforum/showthread.php?51773-Hawk-Rod-Part-1-Get-Back-on-the-Road Now that I have my title and the car is legal to drive on the roads, it is time to begin the restoration. I wanted a running, working car as a starting point, but the restoration is starting a bit sooner than I expected. This is because I plan to drive this car on a cross country vacation in the spring of 2015. So the work needs to begin NOW!!! Plans: Body will be restored to original, with original Limelight paint. I will add the blackout hood treatment and stripe on the trunk that the car originally did not have. I also plan to add air conditioning, power brakes with front disks, power steering, frame stiffening components and an overdrive transmission. I plan to stick with the stock 383 for now, since I won't have the funds to upgrade or change that too much yet. The engine has 80,000 original miles and runs great, so for now I plan just to clean the outside and paint it. I will try to add a lot of pictures to this thread. In some cases, it might be more than people want to see, but maybe they can help as a reference for some people. I will farm out the body work due to limited time, and I have asked the body guys to post pictures of my car as it progresses on this thread as well. We will see how it all works out. It's a big adventure!!! :blob1: Some pictures of the beginning of the tear down: Mounting locations for the rear bumper assembly Rear cross member. I am surprised how good a shape it is in. I expected it to be quite rusty. (The car does need quarters, a trunk floor and extensions for sure, however) Looks Like the driver side tail light surround pot metal piece has had some body work done to it :-( Inner seam. I think the tail panel looks OK. It has a dent/old body work, but from a rust perspective, I think it looks pretty good. Front Fender Removal: A couple of shots underneath to show what some of the splash guards looked like. Cowl area looks to be in good shape from a rust perspective. The front end after a today. Progress is being made - too bad I need to go to work tomorrow!
