Yeah, I can't believe the prices people are asking for beat up hulks these days. Used to be you stick a couple grand in a car to fix it up and lose money, now, for some reason big bucks are being paid for junk.

That's the one. Don't tell me, it's sitting in your backyard!

You have to cut and paste, just checked it, it still works. It always surprises me that people show a vehicle and don't even take a few minutes to clean them up to show better.

I think it was the second paragraph. Console tach doesn't work, either, and it is a 385hp 426 Hemi single 4bbl carb engine and supposedly numbers matching.

hide-away headlamps (1966 Charger), noted in the write-up.  It is a very nice looking car.

And you see the little notch on the bottom side of each female connector? If you push the wire and slip that flattened paper clip I talked about in there, the tab that holds the wire in place will be depressed and the wire will pull out the back.

OK, interesting. I was going by the B body and all the others I have seen around the era. Needless to say, replacement isn't that much of an option. If the connectors, males and females, need actual replacement, I use a paper clip I have flattened a little bit to get into the little notch to release them from the holders, and NAPA carries them so you can replace them. Make sure to write down the locations for the wires so they remain in original positions.

The bulkhead connector is not something one simply replaces, it is about 20 wires that connect male and female connectors using a block that connects to the bulkhead below the master cylinder (location-wise) and then I believe 4 unplug connectors on the engine side of it. You have to unplug them one at a time and look at them, if they are green, you have a corrosion problem. There is one big red wire which feeds the amp gauge at the dash, then the other side of it goes to the fuse block to power everything there.The amp gauge has an insulation material that over time likes to break down and then short, but that doesn't seem to be the issue right now, but it is still direct power, you may wish to replace this or re-insulate it for safety, it is usually the reason for a dash fire.  Back to the bulkhead connector, and if green, you can clean the connections with vinegar to remove the corrosion, a little container the connector can be dipped into vinegar about 5-10 minutes depending on the corrosion level, then let it dry, coat with dielectric grease to prevent corrosion in the future. The bulkhead connector itself has a couple spring clamps that can be pushed to get it through the bulkhead and soaked to clean inside and under the dash (it is about brake pedal level and kind of tight in there. Same thing to clean it. Next thing is the brake lights itself, check damage at the bulbs, the wires like to crack and short in the trunk, there is a connector at the kickpanel behind the emergency brake on the side, and it goes up to the headlight switch, check those. Being you aren't blowing fuses, I would think something connected to the direct power wire for the headlights and tail lights is the main short. Get a wiring diagram to trace wires, go from there.

The 4.7 is a pretty decent engine, and as far as the computer goes, yeah, I know the Ford has to have a matching cluster in order to get it to start, so that isn't that big of a surprise, has to do with the security/theft system in the Ford (at least).  If it stopped running, check the normal spark, fuel, things like that, check codes, see if there are any of them to help diagnose, go from there. If it is cheap enough, shouldn't be that hard to figure out what is wrong.

Well, I can appreciate the fact someone finally came to a final decision, even if it took a while before any results occurred. As they say, good things come to those that wait, even if there was a whole lot of BS in between.
