    Hi,

    my name is Eckhrad, I'm 49 years young and I live in Germany.
    Since decades, I love and drive US-cars.
    It all started with a 1988 Ford LTT Country Squire, followed by a 93 Firebird, a 95 Cadillac STS, a 99 Cadillac STS and my actual daily drive, a 2010 Dodge RAM 1500 SLT.
    The last 3 years I spent restoring a 1973 Plymouth Duster (medium hot built 360 with about 450HP – high 12’s in the ¼ mile).

    But at the moment, I'm working on the 1967 Dodge Coronet 440 we bought for my wife (model, unfortunately not engine size).
    The next project will be a 1966 Dodge Polara 383 (still working on the engine - 496 stroker.

    Regards from lake constance..... Eckhard

        Thank's....
        The Duster took nearly 3 years and it isn't that easy, since some sellers won't ship to germany any more.
        Color is: https://tiendaracingcolors.com/de/f...arbe-candy-uk11-apple-red-house-of-kolor.html
        Duster was a full restauration (down to the sheet metal).

        The Coronet is a great car - nice shape.
        But I need to do something with the 318.... unfortunately "only" a 440 model, not a 440 engine.
        But nothing a Huges whiplash camshaft can't fix...
        http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/...hZnQ=&level2=V2hpcGxhc2ggTXVzY2xlIENhciBDYW1z
        The engine is a 86 low comp 318... toped with a Edelbrock 1406 (just ordered the calibration kit)....
        A lot of work, but she is a beauty.

        The engine block for the polara is nearly prepeared and I'm ready to order the stroker kit... but the whole car needs work and it will be a full resto, too.
        But some parts for the Polara are hard to find ;-)

        If you need some parts/pieces for your 66 Polara.. try contacting Murray Park
        @ cbodiesonly.com I think! Or just google him. I have been to his place, in Tiffin, Ohio and he has 100s of cars, and many thousands of parts. A friend of mine brought him back many projects, and parts cars from Arizona 10-12 years ago or so. He is sometimes hard to get ahold of, but keep trying. He ships parts all over the world to customers.
