    Hello everyone. New to this site but not new to Mopars. I owned a few Mopar muscle cars over the years but the last few years I have been buying and working on mostly Oldsmobiles and Fords. After selling off a few cars,I decided to look for a mopar project.
    Last week I purchased a 1974 Roadrunner off Ebay. I had looked the car over before it was listed. It was located a few blocks from my job so I looked it over a few weeks ago. But about a week ago I saw it listed on Ebay and decided to buy it.
    The car is a factory U code 440 big block car but is missing the engine and trans. The body is 98% rust free and some restoration work has already been done. The car is disassembled but almost all the parts are there. I plan on taking my time gathering parts and doing the restoration. I been spoiled by the fast catalog restoration of mustangs so working on a 74 b-body will be a challenge. But im in no hurry so I will spend the first few months reseaching information and gathering parts. $_57-3.jpg $_57.jpg $_57-19.jpg

        Thanks guys. My plans are for a mostly stock build with the only modifications being done to the suspension and the brakes. The car is a original E5 bright red exterior,with a black bucket seat interior. Im going to stick with these colors.
