    picked up the seats last evening , man am i happy - the pics dont do the color justice - its more maroon and has a great texture to it . im ashamed by all the more i was charged for the work (sounds stupid huh !) but the woman gave me a superb price and the work is great ! thats why i keep sending her work from friends and others locally looking for interior work . its really nice to deal with someone whose salt of the earth honest and who cares about the quality but doesnt bend ya over on price . also found a set of moser axles for a very good price and should have them soon . things are moving very quickly now !!! how much fun is this time of any build !

    Looks like a fun project. I have been planning something similar for years, although my '66 Classic wagon will be powered by 4.7L Jeep stroker. Do you have any more pics of the rear spring hangers and shackle mounts at all? Are you just using Mopar Competition rear springs? Thanks.

    How you doing 73rr? You sure did give me a lot of help when i had the 29 with the hemi-again thanks . As for the rambler the engine is a 1970 mopar 440 (hp) with .040 pistons , 2.20 and 1.98 valves (906 cast heads with a little extra care) steel crank , mopar performance dist. 2-450 holley carbs and really tall weiand intake , double roller timing chain (mopar) , crane rockers and a comp "thumper" cam kit , trick flow valve springs , aluminum front water pump housing and high flow aluminum water pump , thats about it - this combo should make this little rambler stand up and pay attention . I know that a similar engine in my 1970 challenger is a handfull and that e body is a shit load heavier than the classic 770 . Should be a lot of fun !!!!

    Been following your build and i dig it. Nothin like a big block chrysler and a 4 speed in a little car. I am intrested in your ladder bar setup is there any way you could post some more pics of them. I have a 64 dart a/fx and am considering cal-trac bars but my budget right now is preventing my purchase of them. Looks like you made your ladder bars and i am considering doing that instead the paint and interior on my car is bleeding my budget lol. Keep up the good work

    Awesome build!

    Are you going to badge it back up as a Rambler,
    or let everyone scratch their heads over exactly what kind of Plymouth it is?
    :D

    well.... got the doors on , most of the interior in and ..bam.. sudden stop in the action . I have been working on the clutch z bar and related items for 3 weeks now , hell last weekend I had just about 22 hours in the damn thing . we really should have gone with hydro t.o.b. and did away with the linkage - but nooooo we have to go with the old school linkage set up . I have never had this much trouble with something during a build , guess I should have paid more attention in geometry class . but in the end it looks like the damn thing will work . I had to make my own z bar , my own linkage (all done with hiem joints) and fit a big block mopar clutch style set up in 1964c rambler , but with some encouragement from a good friend (he is pretty good at this stuff) and lots of blood sweat and tears , it looks like it will work . I think I will take some pics of all the bull shit I had to do and post them . I will say this , a manual clutch/z bar configuration will never puzzle me again , I got this shit down now . later todd
