This car is not a junkyard refugee.  I bought it from an older gentleman (2nd owner?) in this area in 1998.  It had been stored outside under a tarp for several years.   The car was complete to the nut and bolt but needed everything due to age and elements.   I had it up and running shortly thereafter, before disassembling it for a full restoration.  Everything has been stored dry since my purchase and all pieces and parts (other than those noted) are bagged and boxed and go with the car.  I no longer have the original 318/904.

Sale includes everything listed above and items pictured, as well as all of the small miscellaneous parts, brackets, hardware, etc. that came from the car.  I also have the fender tag (pictured) and at least one build sheet for this car.

If car sells by Buy-It-Now, I will throw in a complete, untouched ’69 steel crank 440 4bbl with 727 tranny that I removed from a ’69 Chrysler 300.  Motor is complete from AVS carb to pan (less exhaust manifolds).  I’ll also throw in a new set of Mopar Performance XHD leaf springs (new, never installed) and a set of 440/Hemi torsion bars (.925”).

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat ringtone revs up [w/video]

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 16:01:00 EST

The best (or worst, depending on your views) thing about smartphones is that you're able to carry lots, and lots of useful stuff around in your pocket. That means you can always have a phone, messaging service, email, flashlight, calculator, dictionary, encyclopedia, and literally thousands of other things on your person at all times. Now, we can add one more thing for you to carry about in your little slab of aluminum, glass and plastic - a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
Now, you obviously can't carry around a 707-horsepower muscle car around in your pocket. That'd be ridiculous, impractical and uncomfortable. You can, however, carry around the noise made by said muscle car's 6.2-liter, supercharged Hemi V8, thanks to a new, free-to-download ringtone from the folks at Dodge and SRT.
We can't embed the ringtone here, so if you'd like to hear exactly how it'll sound when your phone goes off, you'll need to head over to the SRT Hellcat's page. If that's more trouble than it's worth, the same ringtone was attached to a tiny speaker on the press kit for the mighty Challenger, and was captured on video by our own Seyth Miersma (don't worry, he's already been soundly dressed down for shooting a video in portrait mode).

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has 707 glorious horsepower [w/video]

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 16:37:00 EST

Hold onto your butts. "600-plus horsepower" is what we were told to expect from the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with its 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. But as we've just learned, those were incredibly conservative numbers. Dodge has officially announced that the range-topping Challenger will hit the asphalt with 707 - seven hundred and seven - horsepower, making it the "most powerful muscle car ever."
Of course, 707 hp is only part of the story, as the Hellcat has also been confirmed to produce 650 pound-feet of torque. All that power will run exclusively to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission that differs from other Challengers. The new gearbox, 8HP90 (rather than the 8HP70) is "upgraded to handle the extra power and torque," says Dan Reid, SRT's manager of product design and motorsports.
We certainly hope you're prepared to spend a ton of money replacing tires.

South Dakota dealer filled to brim with classic cars

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 16:27:00 EST

Other than the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Mount Rushmore, South Dakota isn't generally a hot topic, but that just means that cool stuff can hide in the open waiting to be discovered. Case in point: the classic car dealer Frankman Motor Company that operates three locations in Sioux Falls, SD.
Unearthed by the folks at Bring a Trailer, Frankman is a treasure trove of vintage, American iron. Their collection is full of the type of vehicles your irresponsible but cool uncle would show up with when you were a kid. Even better, these cars are priced at a level a working man can afford.
If you are lusting about a cruiser then Frankman has a 1956 Cadillac Deville Hard Top Sedan (pictured right) with 82,896 miles for $12,975. It's painted a color called Cascade Grey, but looks more like a pastel purple in pictures. While it needs some repairs to the accessories, the Caddy runs and drives, which is all you really need.
