    Finally got around to registering. Used to be a frequent user of message boards before social media took over.

    My project brought me here. The car is my Grandfather's 1974 Charger, a Spring Special originally Eggshell White with a Vinyl top.

    I got my hands on the car when my uncle who was supposed to fix the accident damage couldn't store it anymore. I've been in the process of fixing it for my grandfather over the last 9 years. The plan was to make the car a nice cruiser, he wanted to be able to take it to the local car shows. Unfortunately he passed away before I was able to get the car back together.

    My goal is to get it finished the way he wanted it done but I've reached the point where some parts I need to achieve that are being very elusive.

        Welcome from NY.
        Those early 70's Chargers seem to be popping up daily here.
        Nice to see them getting upgraded.

        Thank you all for the greetings. I'm sure I will be picking brains and pleading for help as this project progresses.
