Just got another project, This car has been in the uk for over 20 years
and has been painted for over 5 years just never assembled and driven
it has a new 871 blower with twin carbs all still in the boxes
Just need to be brought up to date and have the mechanicals upgraded
to suit the power.

YES the wheels are on the shopping list.
The ones fitted are 14" !!!!!!!! i am looking at
various wheels but it has to go with the theme
ie bug catcher out the bonnet.
So do I go for :-
A Magnum 500 style wheels in a 17" ( sort of stock )
B A drag racing type wheel 15 " with tall tyres
C More upto date 18" with taller tyres on the back
D Full on 20" with rubber band tyres

Cant make my mind up

Hi Folks,

By a strange twist of fate, I will be putting together a motor for this fine car!
Its going to have a strong bottom end, with a steel crank, polished beam six-pack rods with ARP bolts, Arias blower pistons at plus +.055 to make this a 451ci, all in a superstrong 1968 440ci thickwall block!!!
Look out for the Charger on a drag-strip near you!:smoke:

Cheers from Bacca!

Got a huge shopping list of parts to still get for the car and looking at having to upgrade
all the running gear to make any sensible use of the blower.
Theres lot of parts down at the powder coaters at the moment when they get back i can start to get some more parts but together.
Bacca you need the blower lower pulley from me for the extra crank keyway PM me please.

Hi Mark,

Don't know anyone called BACCA?
Is he that Knowitall bloke off the MMA!!!:beuj:
All I know about him is he used to own Cooky's Dodge!
The fastest Street legal Mopar in Europe!!!:smoke:
But he could only run Mid Ten's, must be a WOOS!:sniff:

You've come to the right place with me 'Gtxjon.'
I am a Mopar expert, just ask Julius Steur of California!
Or Tom Nelson (race engines) of San Fernando Valley!
I have my own machine shop, a full H/D rotisserie for Mopars etc.
And I charge the cheapest rates in the UK, if I like you, otherwise its Double!:pmsl:

Be in touch Mark, your soul will be saved now you have a Mopar!:tup:
