    Just wanted to let everyone know that I have put a 5.7 hemi and 5spd. auto into my 64 polara 500. There were some snags but overall it went pretty smooth.

    If antone has questions , I'll try to answer them the best I can. I did do away with the truck manifold and used a Charger one instead so the engine does have a different look.

    The wheels I got on Ebay for less than 500, and they are Foose rims. the fronts are 15x7 245/60 and the rear is 15x8 275/60 the fit is really good.
