Had the car for a couple years and cooked 2 /6's and just got angry one day and called the wrecker to tow it away....First and only time I've ever made a quicka nd rash decision like that and I still regret it....

UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / 68 Chrysler material
« on: September 12, 2008, 09:32:03 PM »
I have a small area of the drivers seat back in the wagon that needs I went to my upholstry shop...she does hotrods..blah blah blah...anyway we were trying to find something that was a close match to my original material.
 She had these books..."OAIT" (Original, Automotive, Interior, Trim...I believe) Anyway they have material from all kinds of GM/Ford/Mopars etc...but she is missing the 68 book so we were unable to match anything up perfectly.
 Anyone have one?? Would need the interior Vinyl for 68 Chrysler Newport with a E5B interior...(B5 blue)
 I'm going to contact SMS and legendary and see if they have some NOS material I can try and match up...She told me I will probably only need a square yard to do the repairs.thrashingcows2008-09-13 02:40:25

Tech- - FUEL / Wagon owners...fuel tanks
« on: July 29, 2008, 05:04:14 PM »
I did find out the hard way though that with wagons you DO NOT top up/over fill the tank....I did this the first full tank I put into the car and I had fuel leaking out the over flow/vent tube, had to siphon off a couple gallons. After this happened I remembered a chrysler memo posted by AlaskanT/A about this very thing!

General Tech / A/C 134A retrofit in slabside....
« on: June 17, 2008, 07:27:58 PM »
S0 as requested by Leaburn I'm going to do an indepth thread here about the retrofit I'm doing on my 68 T/C wagon.  But this info should be relevant to all 65-68 slabside C-bodies.
The wagon is equiped with factory A/C so it has all the underdash and wiring in place and in good functioning condition...I hope.
All my retrofit components have come from Bouchillon Performance, their website is
I bought the bracket kit,  BPE4700
This kit mounts a Sanden A/C compressor in the same location as your old RV2 A/C compressor.  But you will need a matched set of new belts, the kit gives you the Gates number which can be cross refrenced to something available locally.
I eventually went with the underhood kit BPE6651. 
After exhaustive e-mails and phone calls to determine the length of the hoses and the types of fittings to help mount everything so it clears and wont interfear with the other systems.
So here we go...
