Congratulations, beautiful car, hands down my favorite of all mopars.
@JB400 When will we see a picture of your car? Do you even own a b body? If so let’s see it..... Hey what happened to your “word” thread? Kinda like your restoration tool thread, right....gone gone away into useless land I see
Lordy, Nation is a piece of work. I am smiling all the way to the garage. I love a debate just like anyone and well, can hold my own.. Here's the "Loser" with his "Winnings"...
Back to the car and less useless banter... 1. NOS items I have had for a LONG time waiting for the right car. Well, it is here.. 1 500 script for the taillamp panel I have had for nearly 20 years and headlamp bezels. 2. The NOS center grille came with the car.
Original carbs but the rear will need to have a top swap. Somewhere down the line the top half with the choke was switched out. That should be an easy fix. Hey Scott !!!
I do see a piece of work in that picture....one is beyond repair and the other has hopes.....lol.....That’s a smile more like you just got a colonoscopy....weird taking facing shots, kinda creepy.. Now let’s see more of the car that has hopes.... Great pics above btw......
In all seriousness,, what the hell have I ever done to you? See y'all later.......
Cool car and will be watching along as this one gets restored. I know you upgraded, but I sure would have had a hard time selling the T5 500. I liked it so much that a picture of it has been my screen saver for the last couple of months.
I will let you think about that one Troy...........
And just like that.... he's gone.
Yeap......Just like your car pictures.......Wait, thats right you have yet to post one..... Troy...will be back.....I think he could do a good build thread.....At least he has a car/cars and posted many pics around the forums......unlike yourself....but you always swing in with your nonsense.....
I have seen this video also - a few years ago, and the film does not make the car look red....but if the guy says it's red...then it's red. I stand corrected.
Cool car. Cool story. Who cares whatever anyone else thinks or types. It's your car, build it your way. The next guy will change whatever he wants to change it to his way anyway.
Some more NOS stuff waiting to be placed on this Charger.. Just got my NOS HEMI badges for the ole C500 today.. Thanks Wayne !!!! Looks good covering those three holes in the door. You can tell they are NOS, the pins fit into the holes of the door perfectly....
After 50 years being separated from the car it belongs to, the original broadcast sheet is reunited to its car, thanks to Richard, owner of Charger 500 #1 for giving it to Galen Govier to hopefully reunite the sheet with the owner of #5, mine.. That was done many many years ago. The Mopar paths finally crossed. I was able to connect the broadcast sheet of #1, which was found in my 500, to owner #1. Thanks to Galen and Diane for their safeguarding of the document and giving it back to me. Turns out Galen had a gig near me and came over for some dinner with the family and some Mopar chatting, along with my broadcast sheet.. Cool picture of broadcast sheet to 110614, #5 found in 110610, #1. Think I have found who is going to do my 500. Would love Brian, but man that is a long way from home or Hodges. Will go with a firm here locally that did my friend's Superbird.. So soon things will start a'happenin'.
Page 106 of the mid 1990s book "Supercars - Story of the Plymouth Superbird and Dodge Daytona", interviewed the guys that were there. Frank Wylie, Dodge PR manager, said one car was stolen when Hot Rod had it for testing, recovered stripped in Watts, CA and shipped to Nichels for converson to become DC-93, more commonly known as the #88 Engineering Daytona. Wonder what number it was? Or were more than 6 PR 500s built? Also, I can attest there was no traces of any red paint on the car, only B5.
Hey gang.. Started on the restoration of the Press Release 1969 Hemi Charger 500, car #614 Here, my friend Dave and I, undertake pulling the drivetrain and front suspension out from under the car in preparation for paint & body.. Various process shots of drivetrain removal, front bumper and valance along with complete rear suspension then dollies mounted... Enough for a hot & humid Texas weekend..
Good job Troy, we are watching. Keep the pics comin. Rick !
Hey Rick.. Per your request..... Almost done with the stripping.. Nice seeing you last Saturday at Niftee50ees and meeting your friend Chris ( correct? ) Pretty much done with the disassembly of the ole girl. Have to wait about 2.5 weeks for the blaster I am going to try. Gent says he has a system of stripping the car to include the very resistant factory sound deadening undercoating. I will take him one of my extra fenders that has the same undercoating and see how that goes before I take the complete car there. I want to reduce the chances of something happening to the car during multiple transportation. While I am waiting I will start taking out the whiff-wham attempt to repair the rusty trunk floor back in the 80's and all the window clips.. Thanks to my buddy Julius for enlightening me on another technique for removing the drip rail molding, had one side off in two minutes and the other side in 30 seconds, perfectly..
