1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 383 5spd RESTOMOD
Words can not describe this 1970 Challenger R/T.
An original big block 383 convertible, 1 of only 516 ever made.
The current owner was just a kid when he bought it over 40 years ago !
Now he's going to build it so it will be a nice safe driver, with the addition of four wheel disc brakes, coil over suspension, rack and pinion steering and nice 17" wheels....
Even though the body is very close to being ready for paint, I thought I would take care of some little details before sending it off to the paint shop ! Welded up the shock tower holes that will no longer be needed, correct nutserts for the mirrors and replacing broken off nuts for the roof. Added provisions for the E brake cable as well. Important details to get done BEFORE paint !
All the small details taken care of, the messy seam sealer in place, now it's time to find a body shop to apply a beautiful coat of original FE5 Bright Red paint !
Neil's Auto Collision & Body Works out of Burlington ON has agreed to take on the task of bringing this beauty back to life. I can't wait to see the magic they perform!
Moving right along....
After hours of filling and sanding, welding on some brake line tabs, the rear axle is looking great and ready for reasssembly !
Final assembly then a nice cut and polish and she'll be good to go ! Won't be long now.
