Here is the latest shot of it, hung the doors on it and have been accumulating parts for it so that it is a more complete car.

NICE! I see IT WAS a Gooooooooooood day.

Great mind set, like a "Never surender!" and a "FU! I'm gonna do it my way!" rolled into one.

This car is way to kool to part out and you just don't come accross #'s matching 340 Challengers for less than $1,500.00 very often!!!.

In my opinion the nice thing about a car like this is that you can take your time and put the money into it as you see fit. Especially with the price you got it for and how much people are asking for cars that don't need as much work. Nice find!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words and support. This one is next in line for restoration after my `68 Road Runner which is going slowly but surely, very busy with work lately.
