    the love hate relationship started today, I cleaned out the trunk and interior here's what I found
    Pulled the front carpet out
    The carpet was a indoor house carpet they even used house padding under it.i found that the drivers side floor pan is in poor shape will need to replace
    Pass side not bad

    I will try to get them to download again
    I just spoke to c2c fabrications about replacement floor pans and the advised me that they do not have them for the 880 but DO HAVE pans and trunk floor and extensions for the 62 Newport
    What I have read is the 62 880 is a 61 dodge nose on a 62 Newport so the parts should fit???? Can anybody confirm that?
    The parts were cheap
    Floor pans about 65 bucks
    Trunk floor 199

    I pulled the hood off the car today it's a rusted mess
    It was so bad that the bolts were rusted so bad that there was no threads in the middle of the bolts
    Pictures coming

    Ordered front floor pans
    Got the 440 running on the engine stand early in the week
    It started pretty good turns out the radiator has holes in it .
    I spoke with 727 specialists this week he can build my 62 trans to work with later model 440 and push button trans but after discussion I have decided to go with later model 727 with a floor shifter.
    i am going to use later model rear with emergeny brake
    I need to know if anyone makes or has made a bracket to mount the lager transmission into the 62. 880

    I took these seats out of a 64 New Yorker . I also took the inside seat reinforcements and they fit my 64 880 floor pan with no problem , if that helps at all? 20180113_151249.jpg 20180329_173402.jpg

    Thanks I have a interchange manual
    The 62 880 was put together by matting the 1961 polara nose onto a 1962 newport body
    Still looking for a hood, hinges and trunk lid have not found anything close enough to buy and pick up in tx

    Thanks
    I did see that post but I am not sure that I am going to put the side molding back yet. I need 1rocker molding and the molding on top of pass door by window
    What other things do you have?
    I need a set of hood hinges, trunk lid,hood, tail light lenses for now,I am sure the list will grow as I get deeper
