I invited him over from the dark side of the force.
 
He has a 62 Chrysler Newport.  I did osme cross referencing on the T Bars for yesterday.  Technically, it's not a C, but we cater to all the bodies from 55 to 72.  He falls right in here.
 
Hope to see more of you!

Ok, second try at this....
 
First off, a little about me...I am a 1LT in the Army, stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. For those of you who haven't been to Washington, it rains here a lot. When it isn't raining, its pretty nice. I am a gear head through and through, and own four cars. The newest aquisition, and the one that members are probably most interested in is a 1962 Newport. It is definitly a project, as it has quite a lot of rust. The trunk, and rear quarters will need to be replaced, and there is a hole where the front passenger floor and the firewall meet. Good news is that the subframes are in good shape, and so is the motortrain. The vision for the car is a cool, old, comfortable, cruiser. I will make upgrades to handling and brakes but I already have a finicky canyon carver and don't need another (besides I can't quite imagine taking a right turn at 60 MPH in a car this big). Anyway, as I have a tendancy to ramble, I will shut up now and post some pics...hopefully it works this time.
 
(I hope you don't hold it against me, but for those of you wondering, my other cars are a 68 Oldsmobile Cutlass, a 89 Ford Mustang, and a 97 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor)

The New Yorker is up in Oregon.  The guy who was refurbishing it passed away when the car was in a 1000 pieces.  I need to figure out when I can go get it.  I need 2 weeks with the trailer. . .   It's 2600 miles.
 
Lt. in the Army Huh?  Does this mean I have to salute you?  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)  SIR!  I was just a Non-Com.  I believe you call them E5's now.  V.V. and the holes to prove it.

That looks like quite the project.(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)

Got any pictures of the Cutlass?  (Do you know if it's a Lansing built car?)

Once I looked at it and saw it was a 2 door I had to have it...its a weakness. Those doors are so big they take up basically the whole next parking spot when wide open. O and I forgot to write that I have only had the cantankerous old lady for two weeks and have already installed the Edelbrock intake, Holley Street Avenger carb, and the Mopar Electronic Ignition distributor that you see in the pics. She even ran for like 15 minutes before burning 3 brand new plug wires on the exhaust manifolds. Guess thats what I get for trying to wake her up at 0030 on a Saturday morning (thats 1230 am for all you civilians out there). Here are a couple of pics for D Cluley of the Cutlass. It is a Lansing car as far as I can tell, and runs great. Like the Newport it needs some interior and body work but runs like a champ.

(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)     So it's a '68 with a '69 front end?  Is there a story behind that?

I am sure there is, but I don't know it. My father bought the car from some guy who didn't have any information about it. What he did have was lamp wire keeping the thing running. Even its rough state now is leaps and bounds above what it was when my father bought it. Its been rewired with a painless wiring kit, so at least that part is good.
