    that's an ambitious project! call it what you like, but you took two parts cars and made a solid one. good for you.

    Great work! I always wondered what happened to that car.

    By the way I think the Gold GT stripes could look fantastic on it!

    Always interesting views on rebuilds. Some like me believe its still the same car as long as most of the original cowl remains. Still not original but that only happens once. Nice work saving/ remaking a cool car.

    So the cowl makes the car?
    This cowl isn't part of the GT ..

    I would like to see more of the process if there are more pics that would be great.

    I'm always interested in learning what the differences are between cars.

    I think all the pissing and moaning on this thread has to do with the two door parts car being a GT.
    If it was a plane jane base car the pissing would be minimal.

    I don't understand that logic either, so by me rebuilding the cowl of my 73, but not much else being touched, my 73 is no longer its self?

    By that logic, my relatively rust free 70 Fury will no longer be it's self when I repair the only rust it has on the cowl as I'll be replacing that...

    One thing I am liking about this thread is all the different opinions on what people think makes a car what it is. Is it the cowl? Top or bottom half of the car? The vin and fender tag? Door sticker?

    No matter what anyone thinks the car is now; it will be a 2 door sport fury with GT stripes and a 440 when it’s done made to be the same as the original came from the factory with very few amendments.

    My personal opinion what makes most mopars is the fender tag, door tag and dash tag. If the car still retains the same options that matches the tag it’s still the same car wether some or half of the sheet metal was replaced or not. It would be one thing to pass it off as original, obviously that’s not happening and I’m documenting it here for everyone to see.

    As long as the car is represented properly, then I don't care, but it's the guy selling the '68 318 Charger as an R/T for R/T money that is the issue. Sure the tags and all say it's an R/T, but it isn't. Too many people with no morals I'm the big money car game. If I bought a car that was an R/T, it better be an R/T. If I knew it was a clone/tribute/mashed up car, would I buy, maybe, but not for the R/T money, closer to what the car started life as.

    No matter what, you took on an ambitious project, and it appears to be coming along nicely. How legal it is, that's another discussion.

    When I restored my very rusty 68 Coronet 500 convertible I ended up replacing about 80% of the sheet metal. Did the complete floors, complete back of the car behind the convertible top supports, inner fenders, rad support, etc, etc. When I eventually sold the car I made sure the buyer understood what was done to the car, sent pics and video of all the work done.

    But I agree with the others it's a matter of disclosure that really is the biggest argument on these types of restorations. ;)

    It's modified yes. It will always be that. If you disclose the origins of the car there's no problems.
    Personally, I would think you would take the number stamps off the original gt and put them on the new car. Full disclosure of course, but those are parts that go with the fender tag, vin tag etc. etc.

    Here's a good example of why the Scheduled in Scheduled Production Date means a target, and is not a 'born on', date.

    Carry on.....

    Our shop is making a few for the Rotary club in town, small world.

    I’ve got a few C bodies you make have seen around town.

    Only this: I am very impressed with the fabrication skills, work and dedication that goes into a project like this. Only speaking for myself, but man oh man do I wish my shop skills were even remotely close to this. I am impressed and look forward to its completion.

    I will admit the Roadrunner is definitely one of the nicer cars that has gone through here. One of my favourites as well, fun cars to drive for sure.
