is an original BH..G car that was built and restored to
match an original BS..R car in every way. If you had a real
factory BS..R car sitting next to mine, they would be almost identical.
The only differences would be 2 letters on the VIN and the price tags.
I can drive and have fun with my car, the other guy can't.
I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite pics - coming off
the delivery truck on a very humid cool day.
BTW, I used PLYCAR auto carriers and they were first class all the way
with both me and at pickup from my car's seller. Reasonable too!
Engine is a 1969 solid
lifter 426 HEMI with Dual Edelbrock 600cfm 4 BBL, 3/8"
bored and decked, new cam, hardened valve seats,
Exhaust is non-restrictive pushing out through 3" TTI pipes and into Flowmaster 40's for
a killer sound that will wake up the neighborhood!
Just a great restoration on the motor compartment and really on the complete car.
Chassis: Chassis is all original but has been
maintained for driving. All tie rods and lower control
and upper control arms have been replaced or checked. The suspension does not need a thing.
The 727 transmission has been built for the HEMI with a Hughes 2200 stall converter
and Auto-grip shifter. 11" HD Brake drums, power front disc brakes,
with correct hemi brake booster. Just one of many neat things that have been
done to this car. It is a blast driving this car.
Body: Body is an original unmolested 46 year old
California car with no rust. It has never
been wrecked, just lovingly pampered by "Mopar Mike" for 20+ years.
It is painted with two stage urethane Base coat, clear coat.
Color is Tor-red UV2 with black side stripes. The paint is very slick and just beautiful to look at.
Floor pans are original with no-rust and super solid. Doors, quarter panels, fenders, trunk,
hood are also great, original, unmolested and original to the car.
If you are looking for a very solid original car and has not been totally restored this is it!
The rubber bumpers are real MOPAR from an AAR.
All of the emblems and the window moldings are new or have been restored to
Interior: Interior is all original and in
immaculate condition like the rest of the car.
New floor carpet was about the only thing needing upgraded. Car even
has an original Rim-Blow steering wheel.
Other: This car has the original fender tag and
even the factory broadcast sheet.
The tires are new and the wheels are new Magnum 500's.
The tire size are BFG 255/60R15s on the rear and 235s on the front with 15x7 Magnum 500 wheels.
Its tough job, but someone has to do it!
