Love T&C wagons.
Sounds like you have a recipe for wreaking havoc on the locals!
I have been collecting parts like mad as well........

I drove wagons for 18 consecutive years but had to switch to a sedan because they quit making wagons.  When I got tired of the sedan,  I switched to an SUV which was the closest I could get to a wagon. Sure do like wagons.

Yours is going to be sweet when you've done.

For right now to get it through inspection...bone stock with log manifolds.  Then once inspected, dual exhaust and probaly a cam upgrade.
 
Would love to do a 496" stroker down the road but...that's way off....

Sounds like you got a lot of work ahead, just curious about one item on
that list, are you going to make the TC a radio delete car?

I might, saw the delete plate on e-bay and had to have it....
 
My 70 sport fury was a factory radio delete car, and I hardly ever listen to the radio anyway.  If I do install a stereo it will probably be a docking station for my iPOD.
