My 1969 Dodge Charger
I have a 1969 Dodge Charger w/ a 383 CI. engine and Torqueflite 727 automatic transmission. It has 2.76 gears and four wheel drum brakes all around. I bought the car on June 4, 1994 from my uncle for $500 cause he didn't have the funds or the time to fix it up any longer and he wanted to keep it in the family. He bought the car new in 1969 and has only put 147,000 miles on it since. The body has a good deal of rust on it but I will be fixing that soon. The mechanical parts of the car were in good shape. When I took apart the engine, it was in pristine condition! I will, of course, be rebuilding everything. The engine was originally a 2bbl. but I already have a 4bbl. for it and I'm also thinking about getting Holley Pro-Jection. I also will be getting disc brakes for the car as four wheel drums are no good for my needs. This project, I figure, will take me a couple of years but seeing as I am having fun doing it, I don't mind to much!
