    Best to drop the 'Rat" word on this forum. Besides, the Plymouth really doesn't fit the image of a Rat Rod.

    Actually looks like solid and in great shape with only a couple of odd decals...:D

    What are your plans for the car?

    Those hoods didn't fit from the factory....unless your building a show car no one will notice it...except you and me...good luck on the rest of the build...if you want to insure the car check out Hagerty , they are inexpensive and a stand up company..

    Looks like a great start! Make it safe and drive it. BTW I dont believe you have a 1973 283 but it doesnt matter.

    Try p15-d24.com I've had great luck finding parts for my 48 there and on ePay. Tell me a little about your brake kit please. Your car looks solid, should be a fun build.

    Your front mount looks a little iffy. That mount will eventually work the bolts out of the block and cause problems. Go side mount from the block or at least tie the 2 sides together such as a hurst mount.

    if you have issues with the hood sides make sure its got the brace that runs side to side near the cowl. on mine I had to make some cuts and reshape it a little to hold the back corners tight.
