MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / Started Work On My 68 300
« on: October 27, 2011, 07:56:29 PM »
Well since I've had no luck selling it I decided to start turning my 68 300 into a driver. It had a pretty good dent in the back so that's where I started. Lucky for me I have a parts car. The bad thing is  the three parts I needed are all weld on so I spent half the day yesterday  drilling out spot welds. Today I fited and welded them in. I'm not going to paint it yet because I have too much customer work but I'm going to put a pair of mufflers on it and install the new dash pad I got and have the front buckets redone and drive it. Here's some pictures of todays progress.

I've been spending all my time working on everybody elses cars for so long that I haven't done much on my cars lately. Well today I got some interior work done on my Daily Driver 64 Dart. The front seat is so bad it's too uncomfortable to drive so I picked up a set of bucket seats at Spring Fling and dropped them off at my Upholstery guy's along with the back seat. Today I got the back seat back so I pulled out the front seat and all the nasty old carpet and insulation. I cleaned all 47 years of dirt and crap out and installed the back seat. On Friday we will install the carpet and front seats. Here's some pictures of the progress so far.

« on: April 11, 2011, 08:58:08 AM »
Miserable weather! Cold, windy, rain and even SNOW! very little "C" Body cars or parts. Still was a good time though. Here's a picture of my only purchase at the swap meet. A set of 5 Road Wheels with American Motor center caps.

General Mopar Discussions / Bodies like this are why I live here.
« on: February 15, 2011, 07:13:52 AM »
Yes I'm talking cars not women, although there are nice ones of them too here. Here is the 65 Fury I 4dr sedan I bought. I bought it from the same guy I bought the 66 NY'er yesterday. I couldn't pass up the Fury after I saw how clean the body is.

General Mopar Discussions / Picked Up Another 66 Parts Car?
« on: February 14, 2011, 10:53:09 AM »
Picked up a 66 New Yorker 4dr ht with a running 440 loaded with options. A/C, Tilt/tele, AM/FM, clock, power windows, seat, twilight sentinal and vacumn trunk release. And yes it seems to be rust free.Still has the original carb and fuel line. Looks like nothing's been altered in any way. It's a twin to the 2dr ht I already have that has no drivetrain. Same color inside and out. Green of course. Here's pictures. The last two pictures are the 2dr.  azblackhemi2011-02-14 15:53:57

General Mopar Discussions / What a pain in the a## job.
« on: February 11, 2011, 05:32:12 PM »
I'm getting my 77 New Yorker ready for paint. I'm also gonna have the vinyl top done so I figured I'd take the moulding off the rear of the vinyl. What a pain. It is held on with nuts so I had to take out the back seat, rear trim panels, rear window trim and the back of the headliner. Even after all that I still couldn't get to the nuts in the center of the roof because the sunroof housing is in the way. I'm NOT taking the sunroof out so I was able to pry the trim off without damaging it. I'm gonna put it back on with barrel clips or some other type of push in fasteners. One very interesting discovery was when I got it apart I found that the opera window is actually a regular 2dr hardtop window covered by a panel to give the opers window appearance. There are even complete working regulators in there. they go up and down. I'm wondering if they're all like that or is it just because of the sunroof conversion?

General BS and Laughs / It's Cold Even in Phoenix.
« on: February 03, 2011, 07:03:30 AM »
Even Phoenix is cold this week. It got down to the mid twenties at my place. We've had thin sheets of ice before but I've never seen ice as thick as it was on the dogs water berrel this morning. Here's some pics. I'm sure you cold climate guys won't be too impressed but for here it's COLD.

General BS and Laughs / Picked up Another Set Of Road Wheels Today Update,
« on: February 02, 2011, 03:33:44 PM »
Yup, picked up another set of Road Wheels. This set happens to be attached to a nice 77 New Yorker. Silver with blue leather interior and a sun roof. 91,000 original miles. Runs and drives great. Just needs a vinyl top and paint to be real nice. You can't beat the ride of a "Formal" Here's some pictures. azblackhemi2011-02-13 20:54:16

General Mopar Discussions / New Shop Truck.
« on: December 13, 2010, 05:41:12 PM »
I figured that I need to have a cool shop truck that I could letter up and use to pick up parts and for advertising my business. I guess for now this will be it. It's a 66 A100 van. It's a 8 door with no rust or dents. Slant 6 with 3 on the tree. Runs and drives good. I'm tempted to leave it the way it is but if I'm gonna use it for advertising I guess I better paint it up real nice.

General BS and Laughs / Can Anyone Identify This Gas Cap?
« on: September 12, 2010, 04:25:32 PM »
I bought this gas cap at Spring Fling last year and have not been able to figure out what it's for. I'm thinking it's for a wagon but what kind?

General BS and Laughs / Quiting My Job and Going Out On My Own
« on: August 28, 2010, 08:17:47 PM »
After 38 years of punching a time clock I'm done. My company has changed and is no longer going to be the great place to work that it has been for 21 years. Luckily for me I will receive a pretty decent severance package. I will walk out of there with alot of great memories along with a bit more than a years pay.  I have no intentions of looking for another job. I'm going to work for my self out of my garage. I have a 2100 sq ft garage with a spray booth, lift, plasma cutter, welders and just about everything I need to make a decent living. I have been doing side work and buying and selling cars and parts for 20+ years so I'm confident I can make this work. I've been gearing up for this for almost a year now and have a huge inventory of about 25 cars and tons of parts. Besides selling cars and parts I will be doing restoration work. Now that I will have the time to put in to it I'm exiceted about restoring cool old Mopars instead of working on Buses. I know that most of the members here are on the other side of the continent from me but if anyone is looking for the highest quality paint and body work on your cars give me a shout. Wish me luck, Thanks Chris.

General Mopar Discussions / Picked up a 70 300 'Vert
« on: July 16, 2010, 05:37:00 PM »
The 70 300 convertable I bought arrived yesterday. It need a complete resto but it is rust free, complete, unbutchered and runs and drives. Looks like it will be a great project. Even came with a set of 6 Road Wheels. It will be alot of work but it has no major issues other than the fact that is has been sitting for years. I will be looking for a few parts soon so if anyone has 70 300 parts let me know. Off hand I will need a trunk lid and a rear bumper. The ones on the car are repairable but if I can find better for a reasonable price that will be the way to go. Here are some pictures. It was kinda dark in my garage so I apoligize for the lousy picture quality.
