Scott 440 Tnt Conv

  • I just got this car so I'll have to add info as I discover it.
    Any help with production numbers for 440 TNT or Data Plate Decoding the options would be greatly appreciated.
    This car sadly was left outside for sometime, it looks like it was a very nice car before that.
    The bottom side looks as good as the top, but the floors have to be replaced.
    Trunk looks good strangely but hood and trunk have some rust.
    The gas tank is gone but other than that it looks complete and untouched.
    I'm learning something cool about this car everyday.
    Has power drum brakes.
    Tilt column that telescopes, so nice.
    8 track radio, anybody have some old tapes I can use. Lol
    Power drivers seat
    Stereo speakers on dash
    Very rust free undercarriage, but the floors have gotten the worst of it.
    Dual Exhaust looks and sounds great
    No sludge in the valve train, extremely clean.
    Successful start today, sounds really strong.
    Replacing freeze plugs I can get to.
    Power top is working.
    Trans is working.
    Carb has rebuild kit installed, runs much better.
    Fresh paint on air cleaner and new dog dish :) pic added.
    New gas tank and sender installed, used b-body tank.

    The 300 with TNT 440 has been sold and is going to a good home in California for a total restoration. I'm happy with the $5,000 sale price, it's definitely not a $500 car. Haha
    Thanks too all the members here for all your help with so many of my questions over the last few months. Hopefully I'll find some other Mopar to keep in the future.
    Wow, nice car! What's the sledge hammer for?

      Thanks, the hammer is the only tool I'm proficient with. Lol
      Old Freeze plugs needed some help exiting the block.

      I really like your 300, great colors and wheels on that gem and best of all is that TNT.

    Looks like a good project. Adding a power booster shouldnt be a problem. RockAuto has units in stock.

      Today I noticed that it does have power drum brakes, that will definitely help.
