First purchased in 1983 as a 1970 VG Coupe the vehicle was trailered home and has not been driven until it was first licensed in December 2004. During this 21 year back to bare shell restoration every bolt and component was removed. This vehicle has travelled only 3250 miles since licensing. All driveline and suspension components have been replaced from front to back including all suspension bushes(f & R) and new disc rotors,wheel bearings, calipers,pads,shock absorbers,rear wheel cylinders,brake shoes and the use of super stock rear springs.
The complete engine/trans/suspension and brakes were removed from a Chrysler by Chrysler CJ in 1984. These components were rebuilt or replaced with new. The car is now running a 360cui eng/727 trans & Genuine XY Gt 9 inch diff.
The engine has been rebuilt with only genuine Mopar performance components including a purple cam and windage tray ,it is designed to run on ULP, It is fitted with a rare factory cast iron single plane 4bbl manifold and 750cfm Vac Sec Holley carburettor and orange ignition box & even Mopar Ign Leads.The engine has an engine driven fan and twin 10' electric fans. The engine bay has no wiring harness visible and the same quality paint work as the body.
The 727 Transmission is fronted by an Allfast 10' High stall(3000rpm) and is fully reconditioned with the inclusion of a Transgo shift kit(stage2) and a front clutch hub from a 727t/f out of an International Scout for added strength. The trans is backed up by a deep pan and very large oil cooler and temp guage.
The 9inch diff is standard xy gt fitted with 3.55 - 1 gears and traction lock centre,28 spline axles.
The vehicle is fitted with a 100lt fuel tank leaving the trunk floor flat, Carter electric fuel pump and twin spin-on filters running through a 3/8 line to the carb. It has pacemaker extractors that have been heat wrapped in the engine bay through to a 2 1/2 Y to a 3' single exhaust.
The vehicle was painted using Glasurit paint 15 years ago and has only been polished twice(burgandy in colour). The interior was re-upholstered completey. It is fitted with a pacer dash board and two extra guages(oil pres/trans temp). It is fitted with a CD stacker and Very Rare BOSE LVS sound system.
During the rebuild I managed to secure all the externals of an 1968 Dodge Dart including the boot lid and trim/front guards, bonnet,grille,headlight surrounds,indicators,tail lights,badges to complete the identity change.
The vehicle is up for sale due to it's lack of use(3250miles in 1 1/2 years) and some one else may make better use of it. This vehicle is as new if not better. Photo's are available upon request. Please no time wasters. If you don't have time for a restoration this ones got it all done for you! Just turn the key.
