    The 1973 Charger I acquired from my parents is home after having sat in a barn on my brothers farm for the last 10 years. Here it is loaded on the trailer at my brothers just before we headed home.

            I’m not sure how much of a build thread that would be, my goals at this point are to get it running again, maybe fix a few sheet metal issues, get the mouse stench out of the interior and drive it.

                        Yep there are plenty of them. That’s a farm driveway leading to a barn, no idea why anyone would want that to be paved. We have running water and bathrooms in our homes too.

                        318, auto, a/c, 8 3/4 it had AC at one time but it isn’t there now.

                              Firstly it’s carb cleaner not starting fluid I’m spraying in the carb to get it to fire.

                              This is a link to the video of what I’m dealing with right now. This 73 Charger was put away at least 10 years ago maybe 13 in the same state I have it right now. I know it has a vacuum cap missing on the metering block. I just put the FBO ignition on it today hoping that it would just fire up but all I get is the stuttering. I think I’m gonna pull the distributor cap and check the gap. The fuel pump is currently not running as I pulled the fuel line off it to ensure I don’t get any garbage in it. Any other ideas what I should look for?

                              Carb cleaner will make the engine stall and die. Just the opposite of starting fluid. Is it getting gas?

                                Cool ride! And it's a hardtop! I was wondering if the rear windows rolled down.

                                If you ever decide to put in a rallye cluster in it, I'd be interested in the sweep cluster.

                                Hope you get it running okay.

                                I actually have a Rallye cluster with the complete dash harness and a second sweep cluster.
