Sweet car! My dad had one of those when I was little. Same colour. That would make a pretty cool hot rod!
 
Good luck with your new project!

Awesome car!!! I love '62-64 Dodges...

yikes, you'd think it'd be kinda hard to mix up the radiator cap with the oil filler cap.

More likely it's a blown head gasket or intake gasket...... radiator was empty from what I heard... but even if a new engine is needed, it's still a great deal!

It is a poser.
A wannabe racer.
But a nice looking wannabe. Even I like it. :)

Turn in into an A-990 clone.  I LOVE those.  Those things came out the same time I hit puberty so you can guess at how it has left me scarred for life.
