Inching closer, headliner is in, the lights are wired, and the glass is all in. It’s at the frame shop now, getting an alignment done

[ATTACH] Done by B&J in Joliet Illinois on a home made press that he bought over 50 years ago second hand from the guy that made it.
I have to disagree, I have WC T-5 from a 89 Mustang and a 4.10 rear gear. The ratios are near perfect for my 218. 2500 RPM at 70 MPH and nice...
So after sitting for 3 years I threw a battery in it and cranked it over for 30 seconds twice with a minute breather in between. Third time it...
Time to dust this thread off. Picked it up from the body shop. I’m tickled...pink lol
All Chrysler wagons from 60 thru 64 were Hardtops as well
I'm going out on a limb here, but I think that in the 11 1/2 years since this was posted he probably hot it to California by now.

Eh, makes it look like a Packard to me
Restraint is the word that comes to mind. Frenched Headlights and antennas, shaved door handles usually clean up the look of the car, butthrowing...
Cars, the Charger, Dart and even the Durango have the "Racetrack" tails and the Challenger has the twin hoops. It really is a generational thing,...
While I still prefer old iron, I do have to say the new Dodges look good, and you can tell they are Dodges from 1/4 mile away by the tail lights.
I've got an offy and Langdons on my 53
1960 Chrsyler 300, 1963 Chrysler 300, 1961 Plymouth Fury, 1964 Plymouth Fury, 1960 Desoto... Any Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth Hardtop Station wagon...
