    Hello to all that are Mopar fans. Just bought a pretty clean 75 Cordoba. The guy I bought it from had it stored in a building for the past 8 years in Florida. The car needs a lot of TLC. I just got it running after rebuilding the Holley 4175 it and installing a new fuel pump. Running of a gas can under the hood since the tank needs dropped and cleaned. Well started it and I couldn't pour water in the radiator fast enough. Then found out that someone in the past had cut the fan shroud in half, so now have to find one of those too. I have a feeling I'll find more stuff but that's expected. I know I'll be posting on here a lot trying to locate parts and see other peoples projects. I look forward to hopefully being a long time member. I'll post some pics for everyone to see.

      A buddy of mine in High School (late '80's) had one. It was blue that a previous owner dropped a 440 in. A lot of memories with that car.

      Took my Driver's exam in a 75 Cordoba.
      Used to mash the pedal to get the left hood blinker to come on to tell you that you were wasting gas.....lol

        Well I've been busy with my new toy.
        So far new gas tank, new freeze plugs through entire engine, New water pump, new alternator, new radiator, fuel pump, gas line front brakes and the latest is I completely replaced everything in the steering ( Steering box, pitman arm, idler arm, upper/lower control arm bushings, upper/lower ball joints and inner/outer tie rod ends). While I had the lower control arms off I added some supports on them so they don't flex and it also tightened up the torsion bar pivot point. Replaced body bushing which were no existent just bolts there. Now I have to get it down to get the front end aligned. I posted just a couple of pictures nothing big.
