Re: Picture- hrm....

Close, it's a 74' Challenger 360 4-barrel. Dad bought it new in 73'. He has all the original papers and purchase numbers, also it is all numbers matching:D . He drove it untill I think it was 88'. In which it's been in storage under cover in our warehouse. Every year since he's started it and ran 1/4 tank of gas through it, even had it serviced this year, oil changed, tranny fluids etc. Dad wants to restore it but he always takes a long time to get things done like that, or has to 'think' about it...lol. If he doesn't restore it, It's going to be given to me and Im going to restore it for sure! I would love to drive this on the road! Maybe I'll go and take some more pics of it and post them:cool:

'74...my favorite year. Please upload these photos to our forum's Photo Gallery, so that they'll be more readily accessible for others to view and enjoy. I certainly hope that you do eventually have that car restored, as it'll be worth even more...if done right. Thanks for the photos. :cool:

Thanks, If my dad doesn't restore it, then I for sure am going to. Once Im done college (2-3 year course), which I should be starting this september. And start working full time for my dad, i'll start restoring or atleast start planning in detail for it's restoration.

Wow, 74 E bodies are rare enough - one with a 360 and 4-speed, though, that's one ultra-rare beast.

The 70-71s have always gotten the glory while it seems like for the longest time the 72-74s got little respect - but I certainly see that changing now. Take care of that one - even though it may not have the cache of a Hemi or a big-block, it's at least as worthy in my book. ;)

Re: Picture- hrm....

Yea, I really want to restore it. How much would anyone guess would it cost to restore this car? Judging from the pic's on the first post. Needs some slight body work, new paint, engine and tranny rebuild, interior redone.

Maybe that's a good thing, as I'd much prefer for it to be 'restored' back to original 'showroom' condition, as opposed to being transformed into a 'custom car'...but maybe that's just me. ;)

Yea, Im definatly with you on that, while what Chip Foose does is awsome, I'd rather have this car restored to the original look, maybe some different wheels tho(maybe!)

Great car. Are you planning on restoring her yourself or paying someone to do it?

Um...will mostlikly get someone else to do it, not sure if it will be an all at once, or step by step restore( body, interior, engine/tranny etc )
