11-19-2011 06:35 PM Restoration of my Chrysler
It's been a couple years since I updated this thing...

These pictures are from the restoration of the body on my '62 Chrysler 300... it was a process that took a couple of years, so some of the early shots reveal some very armature-ish techniques.

The eyebrows on this car were rusted all the way through... I actually poked my finger through one of them! I started by just welding the holes closed, but quickly figured out this wasn't gonna do it.

Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of it, but I re-fabricated the front 3 inches of both fenders from the grille, over the top of the headlight and down to the black "Chrysler" insignia... Really proud of my work there.

I then repainted the whole car in it's original color.

Well, I finally got around to actually changing out the two barrel carb for a four barrel on my '62 Chrysler.

The car now has a Holley 780 4bbl, and a Weiand aluminum dual plane intake manifold.

I'm not sure what kind on horsepower I'm getting, but my 0-60 time went from the high 10s to the low 8s.

This whole project started with two questions:

1. What kind of muscle car era car can I afford?
Answer: A '68 dodge dart.

2. Is it possible to turn a dart into a nice looking car?
Answer: It might be...

So here's the starting concept for my project car.
