Back in the fall of last year I decided to pick up a 72 Challenger it wasn't in bad shape but after driving it for a month I decided I wanted to give it the once over. Well the person that did the work took alot of short cuts and his body work and paint was pitiful. Also seeing as it wasn't a classic with matching numbers it will be a resto-mod this should be fun I'm going to keep the small block 408 stroker with auto trans 3500 stall, 3:23 spool differential.
some pics from picking her up in Michgan
A little history I have found was that from 78 until 2008 it was in GA being drag raced. The original color was B5
out to the drag strip was a lot of fun let my son run it his first time consistent 12.8 all day long the tires cooked off the line...
As I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I may keep, and if I do begin to slide, please dear God protect my ride! - Amen!!!!
I'm watching this thread very closely. Resto-mod Cudas are going cheap too
I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.
