Separate names with a comma.
I would put a fusie set of seats back in it.
That’s the plan, once it comes to it lol
'70 Chrysler seat in the passenger side.
Some sort of GM on the driver side.
Judging from the button on the back, that matches up to 69-72 A body GM seats
drivers seat is from a 69 gto
A GTO seat ehh? Big $$ coming my way?? LOL.
I will say it is much more comfortable then the Chrysler passenger seat!
Thanks guys! I know I have one semi correct seat now, need to find another.
I agree with the others, you gotta keep the sunroof. Particularly with the car's great provenance. Any body guy handy with an English wheel could make one up in short order. Or find a Chrysler body with the right roof curves and make it from that. My '71 New Yorker with sunroof was buggered when I got it, I got lucky and found a working one in a junkyard. It was from a '77? Formal, and smaller than the one in the '71. I did a thread on the removal, if you're interested, it is named "Scalped a formal". Still haven't gotten around to that job...
At least the seats are on the correct sides. I know a 70 300 vert with two right side buckets...
Like others have told, you will miss the sunroof after filling it.
I know of 2 mopar sunroofs, would need your opening dimensions to know if it's a match
or check these folks out, they do alot of nice work
Aren't all the Mopar sunroofs the same in 1970's?
Good question. @sdweatherman
Nope, see my above post. Formals had smaller roofs than fuselages, and smaller openings too.
I kept meaning to go out and get the measurements, but keep forgetting. I’ll try this weekend lol. Thank you!
That’s what I thought. Good to know! I’ve seen a few for formals, as well as some B bodies, but they do seem to look a little smaller. Obviously I never have the car with me to compare lol.
Did a thing this afternoon.....
Finally got tired of seeing the car pushed to the back. Figure if I get it up front in the way, I may start messing with it lol. I gotta hand it to the cheap little harbor freight car dollies! They are doing a great job.
The Newport, and the dually switched places. Planning on attacking little stuff here and there. Don’t want to blow it all apart into a million pieces just yet.
I stole the battery outa the dually, poured some fresh juice down her throat, and got her to life. She wasn’t happy about it at first, but she came around. It’s been over a year since it last fired up. I’m amazed it runs. The gas in her is 4 years old.. whoops.... lol.
The dollies don’t even seem to mind the one ton truck!
I really just want to take the pressure washer to the nasty ass dash! Yuck!!
Of coarse she had to make a couple laps around the neighborhood!
Cool, I see you have already ripped out the headliner. Good call, just this evening actually, I removed mine from my sunroof car. Should've done that sooner, there was a fair amount of mouse poop up there. What a gross job! I won't be reinstalling the felt insulation. I'm thinking along the lines of an adhesive spray foam. Is that your oil light or brake light?
Thanks! Yea, that was one of the other pieces the kid removed. Luckily it looks like the bows for it are in the trunk. Also the foam section the headliner glues to around the power switch for the roof seems to be there as well. It will need a little love before going back in. The roof is ugly for sure! All of it really.... as seen it has a bit of a mold problem at the moment as well....
Light is for HOT engine. Not sure why it was on. It did that last year too. Car was running right around 180 degrees. Prolly a bad sender.
I swear, every time we start cooking with fire, I run outa gas for the welder lol. Got the first patch bent up, and went to weld on it, and no go...
I don’t feel like dealing with the public today, so it’ll have to wait till later in the week... oh well. It’s a start I guess....
Did find quite a bit of dirt, and goo hiding behind the quarter. It looks pretty lodged in there, possibly from it’s pacing days.
Also some pics showing the underside. Not bad, except for the rear floor pans. Believe this is due to the leaky sunroof.
The arch of the quarter is a little ate up, but it is mainly the wheel well behind it. That ones gonna be fun!!! I don’t want to cut the whole arch out, as I’m afraid I won’t be able to replicate it. Gotta attack it from behind, and patch the arch in little pieces, leaving the correct contours.
Wheel arches are a bitch.
Buy a shrinker-stretcher tool.
I've heard good things about the quarter panels on eBay...
No quarter panels that I can see, but check out that trunk floor! Lmao
