Buckminsters '73 Challenger

General Description

View attachment 60033 View attachment 60034 This is our '73 Challenger. I bought it for my boys. They expressed interest in working on a project car together, so we purchased in 2018. The car was in the process of being converted to a drag racer, so it is has a lot of aftermarket speed goodies on it, but we're in the process of making it a street/strip resto-mod.
The list of mod's to date:
340 block, with cast crank
Pro-racer harmonic balancer
Edelbrock RPM heads, Victor Jr. manifold, Edelbrock 1412 800 CFM carb
MSD ignition and billet distributor
Champion aluminum radiator
Painless wiring harness
16 gallon fuel cell, with upgraded fuel pump
Autometer wideband O2 gage installed in the dash where the clock used to go
B&M quarter stick shifter
Transmission has been upgraded with the higher mechanical ratio clutch levers and performance discs.
Rearend is a 3.73 clutch type limited slip diff in a nodular iron carrier 8 3/4".
All suspension rearend and tranny mounts have been blasted, primed and painted with polyurethane in satin black finish.
Many other mods.

Just updated the steering box by having it redone at Steer and Gear. I also had them send along the RT fast ratio pitman and idler arm. I am very happy I made the choice to do this. I had them create the stiff feedback box. No play, great feel, quick ratio. Drives like a modern car now. I had to make some dimples in my hooker headers to get it to clear the nut on the pitman arm just for reference.
 
Just finished making a custom center console. Pictures show day mode and night mode. Made from fiberglass, aluminum, acrylic (for the LED's). The LED lights have a pulse width modulated power convertor so they can be dimmed to almost dark so that it is not too bright for night driving. The center console with arm rest was also made by me custom made to house a fire extinguisher. The console has a USB charger lighted cupholders lighted phone slot, and custom shift cover.
