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.

Even though Chrysler will reportedly discontinue the Dodge Durango after the current model's lifespan - said to be around 2016 - that isn't stopping the automaker from improving its full-size, three-row SUV. The vehicle won't debut at the New York Auto Show until tomorrow, but images are already leaking out ahead of the embargo lift, and they show that the 2014 model is getting even more aggressive styling to go with more technology inside and out.

Dodge limited its early press shots of the new Durango to just the R/T trim level, but this new look adds a meaner look to this model with more dramatic projector-beam headlights along with a "floating" crosshair grille and a restyled fascia. At the rear of the Durango, LED racetrack taillights show a family resemblance to the Charger and Dart, while a new rear fascia adds to the styling while also allowing for an integrated trailer hitch.
On the tech side, the instrument panel looks to have been redesigned to include a standard seven-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) gauge cluster, and it also appears as if Chrysler's well-liked UConnect system has been updated with the 8.4-inch touchscreen found in other Chrysler vehicles. The 2013 model's conventional console shifter has been replaced by a rotary knob for gear selection, suggesting that there are transmission changes afoot as well. We'll have more details when the silks slide off this big boy tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Chrysler is recalling a small number cars over issues with their 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines. The recall, which affects 522 examples of its 2013 Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 models, as well as 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot CUVs has to do with potential debris in the balance shaft bearings.

The abrasive stuff can cause the oil pressure to drop, which could lead to the engine stalling or outright failure. This situation could at best leave drivers stranded and at worst lead to a crash.
Chrysler will begin notifying owners, who will need to report in to have the balance shaft module replaced. All repairs are naturally free of charge. Scroll down for the bulletin from NHTSA.
The 2014 New York Auto Show will be a big one for Dodge, as the brand has announced that refreshed versions of the 2015 Challenger and 2015 Charger will debut at the show. This is a particularly big deal for the two-door Challenger which, visually, has remained unchanged since is burst back onto the scene in 2008 and helped reignite the muscle car wars.
As a sort of hint, this announcement was accompanied by the picture you see above - the Super Bee logo in the Challenger's new instrument cluster. According to Dodge, the New York debut of a new "powertrain combination" - possibly with the high-output Hellcat V8 - will leave enthusiasts "abuzz."
As for the Charger, Dodge is promising a full redesign that should be a significant departure from the blunt, angry looks of the current model. At this point, there's no indication that the Challenger's new powertrain could be fitted to the Charger, although considering how mechanically similar these two vehicles have been, it doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility.
