@J F Go  I know what you mean my first car was a 64 Malibu  SS, I put a 67 350 hp small journal crank  327 from a corvette in it and all it had for brakes was 9 1/2 inch drum drum power brakes that waould fade fast comming back down from over 100 mph. but at 16 no fear or worries.

That is some nice right there. This guy is going to have a very nice running car when you get done. (Wish I was there helping.) Keep up the good work @bc45 and again thank for the pix and updates.

@J F Go  another Mopar, This came in for a alignment and see if we could make it drive an steer good. I am not sure what they were trying to accomplish. I dont know the whole story but the shop that did the work had the car for almost a year? the owner a younger guy took it out of the shop fed up.I dont know how much he is into it but it must be a ton. but we would have to start from scratch. 



it has front coil overs and a rack and pinion steering installed, but the torsion bars are still in with some tension on them, the rack was installed not centered so you have about 1?4 turn to the left when it hits the stop and 2 1/2 turns to the right when it hits the stop.


It has Wilwood rear disc brake conversion but they left the stock front disc brakes on.

It has rear coil over, left side adjusted almost all the way up and left all the way down and the car still sits low on the left.

under the hood looks nice and the 340 does run real good and the exhausr under the car was done nice and right.

They could learn to do double flares on steel lines so you dont have to have so many loops to make it fit

Yeah those 340's ran strong. Always kicked my 383 in the quarter. Not so much in the mile. LOL. That 72 is on same platform that my 71 lived on. Those cars were not meant to go anywhere but straight ahead. Ask me how I know Ha Ha. To bad that young feller got took. But hopefully he'll get it all worked out before he gets discouraged and sells it.

Its a shame also because it could be brought back to being a Great Mopar, but might get set aside and never finished or done right. There are not s many of the Mopars as other brands.

 Yes and there are even fewer on that platform. Two years only.
