1966 Dodge Charger

Posted in Charger, Dodge | 4 Comments »

1966-dodge-charger-041966 Dodge Charger

This Charger is a little crispy after an engine fire. The hood, windshield, dash and drivers door are torched and need serious work.

It's too bad too, because it looks like a bit of work had been done to this car. Note the shaved door handles and very straight body panels. Also has a late model fuel injected 5.9 Magnum under that BBQ'd hood. Read the rest of this entry »

1969 Mach 1

1969-mach-1-31969 Mustang Mach 1

Original Mach 1's are getting harder to find, so this Silver Jade specimen really isn't too bad a project once you get past the rust. And there's a lot of that. The surface rust on this Mustang looks horrible, but a trip to the media blaster would probably clean that up pretty well. Read the rest of this entry »

1969 Mach 1 – 351

Posted in Ford, Mustang | 3 Comments »

1969-mustang-mach-1-011969 Mustang 351-2v Mach 1

This car could be the twin sister to this other 1969 Mach 1 posted back in Feb. They literally could have rolled off the assembly line one after the other. They're both 351-2V cars, both Mach 1's, both built at the Metuchen, NJ Ford plant, both Silver Jade paint with gold Mach 1 side stripes.... and both sitting in a junk yard stripped out and totally neglected.

Big block + convertible = nice project Muscle car. Here's a true S code 390-4v big block Cougar convertible. There were only 344 convertibles made that year with the 390 FE big block. It's not an Eliminator or anything, but definitely worth restoring. Read the rest of this entry »

1968-mustang-coupe11968 Ford Mustang Coupe - "Fire Sale"

Not only was this '68 coupe wrecked, but the engine caught fire too! It had a decently built up 320, but it's not worth much now except for the block and heads. Read the rest of this entry »

Someone started with a good idea on this '63 Nova, but just couldn't follow through. So here it sits. It's been tubbed for slicks, has a Ford 9" rear with Detroit Locker and 4 link suspension. Maybe someone will pick this gem up and finish what was started. Read the rest of this entry »

69-camaro-convertible2Brilliant. I mean, why wouldn't you leave your 1969 Camaro convertible out in the snow?...with no top...gathering leaves & crap to let the rust go nuts! Man! Buy a $30 car cover!!!

This was originally a Lemans Blue car with white convertible top. It was only a 6 cylinder, but that's still no way to treat a convertible Muscle Car! Read the rest of this entry »

1962-corvette-bbq-21962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible - "Slight Smoke Damage"

OUCH! These photos just make you cringe. The great thing about the Corvette fiberglass bodies is they don't rust. But catching on file and burning to the ground? Yeah, you still gotta watch out for that. Read the rest of this entry »
