It took me about five years to finish this project since it was a complete restoration! The Dodge was originally sold in Denver, U.S.A. The car was saved from a scrapyard there and came to Europe where I bought the Dodge. The Mopar was in poor condition at that time, but with a very solid body —  a lot of bump and scrape damage in the body, but very minor rust.

I have ordered a lot of parts from U.S. Mopar vendors and all of them helped me very good and everything I have ordered came to me as agreed!

As a result of the restoration, my Dodge has a 383 with TTI exhaust, Airco, 727 cable-shifter, Hughes convertor and 8 and 3/4 rear with a 3.23:1 gear ratio. The brakes are modifed to a 4 disc brake configuration. I changed to thicker torsion bars and added a Firm Feel swaybar...and more...Pfff...
