I got some pics now. I'll post a couple of them here, and then a link to see the rest. Its at Imagestation.com If you dont have an account there, sign up to be able to view the album. Its free, and unlimited space for your images.

Got a more in depth look at the car today. If you look at the album, you'll see a big rotted spot that I took a pic of. The radiator on the car looks great. No bent fins or anything from the check I gave it. The glass still rolls up and down on a couple of the doors, and the front wing windows still open up, although they are a bit stiff.

All I got to do is get $200 for the down payment and then the guy says just pay the rest whenever I can. Can't beat that!

I do have another question though.. there seems to be a push button on the left side of the guage cluster... What use does that serve? During the rebuild, I might replace the switch for a push button start. (Hmm... that might be what it is.. I dont know though)

It might take a lil more then a few months. The interior is pretty far out there and theres quite a bit of bodywork to be done. The driprails above the doors have lots of rot in them, and I need to make a new crossmember up front to hold the lower a-arms until I get the cash for a Mustang 2 front clip with power steering rack. We make those everyday at work, so I'm sure I can get a good deal.

Nice old Mopar Dude!!

Or should I say Dodge brothers? Only time will tell, and how deep your pockets get!! I would say swap meet parts or anything used to save a buck or two. You might want to think of a fram/suspension upgrade to begin with. Since you work for the frame dude have him design one for you using new used parts. Its only time man, use it to do a little at a time till its done. Listen to me, I work on three projects at once and don't get anything finished!!!
