1971 Dodge Demon Resto-mod on 2040-cars
West Branch, Iowa, United States
|Up for auction is my 1971 Dodge Demon. This has been a project car for me for the passed few years and Ive decided that its time to let it go. I put a lot of hours into this car but just never got around to finishing it. It needs very little to be put on the road, but with that said I'll start with whats needed; There is a bind in the rear axle not sure why but probably a simple fix, but the center section on the diff will need to be pulled for closer inspection, needs a drifeshaft, the brakes need bled, a windshield and seal, and misc trim/etc pieces need to be cleaned up and reinstalled. Includes front bumper, valance, and most of the original hardware for the car. Now what has been done to the car is as follows, it originally started out a a slant six 3 on the tree car but has been converted to a small block K member with all new ball joints, tie rods, and polyurethane bushings throughout. Switched to the common 4.5" wheel bolt spacing all around and converted to disc brakes in the front, with new steel and rubber lines installed. It has a '98 5.9L Dodge Magnum engine with a Milodon 8quart oil pan, mildodon oil pump, and milodon dual roller timing set also installed in the engine which is mated to an application correct NP A833 4-speed transmission. New MP flywheel, Zoom kevlar Clutch assembly, Hurst Comp Plus shifter assembly w/hardware kit, new mounts and seals where needed were installed, along with a modded to fit factory a-body shift boot and hurst bench seat shift lever. It has MP Super Stock rear leaf springs installed on a '68 B-body 8.75" rear differential housing/axles with new bearings and axles seals in place. The differential unit is a 489 case with a richmond 4.10 ring and pinion and a Mopar suregrip unit installed. Base/Clear paint was done right including the jams and inside trunk first. Installed is an aftermarket RCI 16gallon fuel tank with GM style sending unit for a gauge. Car also has installed a MP chrome ecu and an MSD Rev controller. Im sure than Im forgetting a lot but Ill add info as I remember and answer Questions as they arrive.
Thanks for your interest.

Things brought to my attention and things I remembered;
The Main photo of the car is the most current picture of the car. The wheels included are steel oem 15 x 6 front and 15 x7 rear. The primered photos and such are just progress pics from during the rebuild process. Also the car does include the rear bumper and bracketry as well. Also the rear seat is MIA currently, but in the event that it is found... it will be in need of reupholstering.

This was a CLEAN car to start with and has very little body work needed to it. It was a virtually rust free body with a very solid frame and sheet metal. This is NO Bondo Queen. These pictures do not do justice to how good/straight this car is.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at least one man has reported that his 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan stalled unexpectedly on the highway shortly after being refueled. The unidentified man who contacted NHTSA regarding the issue cited as many as eight similar instances reported by other drivers.

NHTSA has announced that it will launch an inquiry into this issue, which could affect as many as 160,000 minivans from Dodge and Chrysler that were sold in 2007 (or more, if a problem is found that extends to additional models years, we'd assume). As of yet, there's no formal investigation, let alone a recall, on these vans, as the agency is merely determining if further action is needed.
Two months ago, Chrysler recalled nearly 700,000 vehicles, the majority of which were minivans, from the 2008-2010 model years to replace ignition switches after an investigation found that their weak springs and detent positions could fool a driver into thinking the car was in the "Run" position, when it's actually in the "Accessory" position.

"This is a car that most brands would never bring to market." - Tim Kuniskis
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis had reason to be confident, perhaps even a bit cocky at the reveal of his brand's newest halo car, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. As he said simply, it's the "quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world."
In other parts of the world, Fiat builds and sells a version of the Dodge Dart called the Viaggio, and it appears that in addition to the current sedan bodystyle, a new hatchback version of the car is also in the works. Autocar says that the general manager for China's Guangzhou-Fiat joint venture, John Burton, has confirmed that a new Viaggio hatchback will be revealed by the end of this year before it goes on sale in early 2014.
The Viaggio will soon be joined by the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which in China will be called the Liberty Light, at the Guangzhou-Fiat plant. While the idea of a Dodge Dart hatchback might be enough to enable most of us to forget about the Dodge Caliber, a North American variant doesn't appear to be in the cards. We reached out to Chrysler PR boss Rick Deneau, and he offered a succinct: "No plans at this time."
