    Hey guys,

    I'm Mac, been a Mopar guy since I was a kid, always owned D/W-series Dodge trucks, have a 74 D200 crew. Just bought my dream car, 69' RR yesterday (May 13th). Going to be an awesome project to get it back down the road. California car, Originally a 383HP/727 car column shift, Bright Red, Trim package: Black interior door frames, black vinyl bench, V21 stripe package, drip rail moldings, AM radio. Has a 8 3/4 diff with 3.91 gears.

    Original driveline not in the car but came with a 74' dated 440 block that has been magnafluxed and cleaned with a set of rebuilt 906 heads, rotating assembly and offy intake, Carter avs, ect. Scored a whole bunch of extra body, trim, interior, and suspension parts with it.

    Plan is to keep the factory options for the paint/interior, bright red paint with the V21 black hood stripes, black interior doors, black vinyl bench (need to find one)and it's going to remain an AT car but with the 440 built up.

    Thanks, everyone for the warm welcomes. I will most definitely keep the pictures rolling as I make my way through getting my RR back on the road.

    The body is solid outside of the quarters. The doors, floors, trunk pan, roof, wheel wells, frame rails,ect. i'll post some updated pictures this weekend after I clean out the car.

    After seeing the pic's look's like you got some work to do on the body. Not bad though. Good luck with it.

    Holy beards batman. Just kidding. Lol. Great looking car. Keep it safe and protected till you can get going on it. My biggest mistake of all was ripping mine from it's dry barn to come sit in my yard for a year. Good luck. Great sounding build plan you have.
