  • Vehicle Overview

    In 2016, found this 1969 Charger in a one car shed in Fresno, Ca., where it had sat since 2000. Trailworn, with over 200,000 miles on the clock, although nearly rust free, it was in need of a complete restoration. I started with a front end rebuild with disc brake conversion, and moved to the 8 3/4 rear end, leaving the 3.23 gears, and installing a sure grip and new brakes. Next, I had to do extensive body repairs where it was apparently in numerous brushes with immovable objects, and I had a new vinyl top installed. (The only part I didn't do myself) Next was the interior, and my first time installing OEM style seat covers. I replaced the carpet, arm rests, and dash pad, but the headliner and door panels were in great shape. Last came the engine and trans. I removed the original 318 / 904 and installed a fresh .060 over 440 with a Crane H-302-2 cam, steel crank, and 10.0-1 compression. This car gets driven, and sees many road miles a year.

    Future Plans

    Satin heavy flake silver / gray paint that looks like sand blasted metal, with a black tail stripe, color matched bumpers, and black trim.
