    Well as some of you know I found what looks like a dead 69 Roadrunner but turns out to be a preaty solid car. Only crossmember that needs work is the shock crossmember. Yes there is rust that needs work but we are already on our way. We verified vin#'s as the lynch road fender tag did not match. The radiator core support and dash tag match, next it is a post car and the fender tag was for a non post.


    20200906_182635.jpg My little helpers on this adventure. We have a 69 383 out of a fury for our heart and have access to multiple axle/diff's for the rear. The front bench however is way to far gone, so time to source a new bench seat core. Another item we are not sure on is a steering column. Will probably go aftermarket on that as I can get one for $200.00 instead of $375.00, because lets be honest this car is past being #'s matching.

    I was shocked that the wiring and connectors look very good. Our next plans is get it back on 4 tires, treat it with Ospho for the meantime and gather the parts to resurect it. We will be doing this on video for our own memories but will also post it on youtube. Plan is running and driving, go to a dragstrip and then roadtrip home.
    Once that is complete the Ospho will be removed and SPI epoxy applied per thier instruction with an eye at getting the body where it needs to be for a driver quality paint job and restoration of all the remaining systems. Hope y'all enjoy.

    That sounds grate Stephen. Yep get the boy's involved. It will be a learning curve for them and you. Good to see your going to bring it back to life. Found mine and it did get pretty deep on the metal work. Every thing is out their for these car's. Only thing is inner frame rails have to be gotten from other donor cars. Will be watching for your progress. Sound's like a plan. :thumbsup2:

    Looking at the quarter panel it looks like someone lost interest in the project some time back. Bench seats are hard to find so don't toss the old one yet, it might value .

    Car comes with new quarters. Passenger side drop off is good but driver needs replacement or patch at the bottom. The seat has one of the split backs mia and the lower section is pretty bad but we will see.
    My oldest holding the tool case has a 67 Coronet and the youngest has a 63 Fairlane. I play with Fords as well. Not rich so everything on a budget.

    Nothing wrong with other car makes. Their are more parts available for Ford's and Chevys. Guess that is because their are so many of them made. Plymouth is one of the hard ones. But the do make enough stuff to restore one. If not then your looking into salvage yard's. Stephen's mopars has helped me on some hard parts to find just to let you know. That is grate it come's with some sheet metal to help with the build. :thumbsup2:
