This Challenger is truly a family affair. Past down once already from a Father to a son, it's being restored now with the owner's two young sons in mind.
Being built the way any young boy would want.
A 1971 Challenger R/T, 440 SIX PACK, four speed in mind bending Plum Crazy purple with black accents....
This is going to be an awesome build !
Off to a great start, the car is practically rust free !
Next, media blasting will find any secrets...
The crew at Kelso Blasting & Restoration in Milton ON did a fantastic job of cleaning off the 49 year old paint to reveal remarkably clean and solid original metal !
One tiny hole in the rear window channel, that's it..... Unbelievable !
Small parts will need media blasting as well !
Neil's Autobody did an excellent job of covering the entire shell with a good solid coat of epoxy primer !
After some minor body work, Jay at Neil's can start laying down multiple coats of that beautiful FC7 paint.
The Results are simply amazing !
...and now the fun part of putting all those nice parts back on. My favorite part.
Scott Davis will handle the headliner and vinyl top with a level skill unmatched in the industry !
How about a 500+hp 440+6 built for this project by the one and only Beatty & Woods !!!
All done....Fantastic !
