I was always a C-body guy. It's a stretch, but it goes back to when my grandfather came home with his new 57 DeSoto 2 dr hdtp.Allow me please, where did you aquire the car and why that one?
I did my thing during the day. The driveway was spotless by 5:00. No work on the weekends. I tried my best to be a great neighbor. The neighbors thought I was nuts but was nice and always waved hi.How did you accomplish this remarkable feat right under the noses of your HOA Nazi's?
Nope. Absolutely not.Was the original intent to build a four speed with a sweetened 440?
If not , How did that come to be?
It started back on a very old Mopar site called Mass Mopars. After the owner of the site died, so did the forum. From there, almost all the work was documented on MoparFins in it's own thread.I searched the dock and couldn't find much, just a few pics. You must have done the thread on Fins, which isn't there anymore. Was that dash the worst part of the job?

Nope. Absolutely not.
After awhile, after know nothing about Formals, I realized that despite the money I threw in it, it would never be more than a 25-hundred car (hence the joke).
I grew up in the era of FULL-SIZED RWD V8 4 SPEED cars that I became addicted to. Think: Biscayne, Galaxies, Starfire, Wildcats, 300's, etc.
I came to a point where I was at a crossroads on where to go with the car.
And it started... I spent several months researching and thought long and hard about how weird this would be. Would you put a four speed in a Town car?
I finally got the balls up to do it and when I dropped the 727 and sold it the next day to a guy in South America
, I said, Well, it's too late now...
TRANSMISSION : A883 from a 66 Fury.What transmission did you use? Where did it come from ?
Where did you source the pedals from ?
Why did you choose those pedals?
