all i have to do is brakes and wireing. she already is tagged. will be cruzing soon
I love this build. I just finished one. Stayed on budget too. Under a hundred bucks.
I will build a real one some day!
that thing is pretty bad ass!
i held the white line high, cuz im gold leafing it and adding a black strip under white
More AWB Mopars, the world will be a much better place with more of these cars.
You the man!!!!!!!!
B BODY's "BLEEP'n" RULE
HURST RACING TIRES
Altered wheelbase car are so cool !! building a 65 comet now, cant wait!!yours is verry cool !!! Chris
I love it! Great wheels & tires, front spring hangers, engine choice, indunction, and paint combination!
One MINOR nit- will you use the stock radio or replace it with a radio delete plate?
Stock radio. New radio always goes in glove box. Even running the push button panal
That car is looking great. Paint scheme is right on for the look! What lettering you putting on it?
Think just gold or silver leaf my last name on the doors.
Too f'n cool great job Any new pics
more pics soon
I love the "California Flash" paint scheme. Ours will be loosely based on the "Color Me Gone" paint which will be sprayed in the next few weeks once we fire the motor.
It would be a killer line-up for us to race each other. Too bad about the gap.
i will be doing alot of vintage drags this year on the east coast. lol this is my first red car. i like the red and white look. and getting alot of art work added to it also. leaf work and lettering
Here is an Aussie version.
That's the look that made me fall in love with that style of car back in '64 when I was a teenager! It just screams radical, even sitting still! Can't wait to see the finished car!
more update pics
I LOVE it!
Will you add some period-correct lettering?
Maybe bring it to the Jalopyrama in Annapolis in October??
I love your car! That is definately my style! Early B-bodies are the best.
yes gold leaf
time to work on the inside. wireing
oh buy the way ! she was done ! now need more motor, lol
schweeeeeet. i'm so jealous.
fastest car i ever had was a 64 sport fury with the drivetrain from a 68 GTX (440/4-sp). that was over 40 years ago. sure wish i had it back. sure wish i'd have made an awb drag car out of it.
i caught the 727 tranny info & 9" rear, but darned if i can find what your engine is. where did i miss that?
awb mopars are so cool.
Man I can smell burnt rubber just looking at this thing. Post a video of it so we can hear it at idle. I'd bet it's mean, wicked and nasty.
Man I dig the Altered wheel base cars, someday maybe
very nice i had a 64 ply before i built the 65 in the avatar all those 62-65 cars just make such natural race cars coming from someone who has driven alloy of these be careful at first until you get used to it they can be handful at times
The car is definitely bad ass. Mine is below I started with a 64 dodge but sold that then got a 64 savoy. Built 440 w/727 and 4:30 detroit locker rear
its has a 440 with 727 in it ! im looking for max wedge heads and intake. but im just about out of money and nothing left to sell. lol maybe down the line i will get a good deal on a hemi. it ran 12s this year. doing some upgrades. should do alot better.
