I did all of the body work myself.

My friends and I did all the mechanics. Thank God for friends!

I guess, like most of us Mopar owners, I could go on and on about my car, so I will cut it short and give the basics: 528 cubic inch Hemi with 680 horsepower Cross Ram with 770 cc. Holley, 727 automatic with a 3500 stall, trans brake, manual valve body.

Since I completed the restoration in 2006, the Dodge has made the rounds on the Shows in California, and one show in Colorado, taking many “first place” and “best of show” awards. The Coronet also took first place in the Top Gun class at the Monterey Bay Mopar Show in California.

An A-990 1965 Dodge post car is the car of my dreams.
In fact, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever own a Hemi car like this one!
