Beautifully Restored MOPAR- See Video Below
My brother and I restored this beautiful car, but now we need to sell it. Our loss is your gain. It is sitting at a friends shop so if you'd like to arrange a pre-buy/bid visit let me know. We were initially just going to repaint it, but took it down to just a shell, and couldn't justify putting crap back into it. The only thing we didn't replace was the dash. We did cover the dash. I did update the gauge panel with new decals, and completely redid the gauge cluster. There are a few items we have for it that weren't installed for these pics which of course will come with the car; glovebox, new dash decal (the one I installed wasn't quite a match), and dome light cover.
Every bit of bodywork was done with either replacement metal or Tigerhair. we removed every piece of trim and refurbished or replaced. All new rubber on seals and such. Bottom line, the only thing I would do to make this pristine would be to find a new dash for it since some retarded kid decided to cut the dash to install a radio. Other than that it looks and runs amazing!

Besides the new stuff, we also refurbished all of the other items like powder coating all the trim, and parts in the motor that take a beating. Repainted the plastics and panels. And just too much to list. The bottom line is this car is a must have! If you're into MOPAR, or just classic cars, this was a great one to have as it was everyman's Dodge. Sure the Duster (a Dart with a different nose) was great, but I honestly like the front end on this one better. I'm not a fan of the flat nose look, but to each his own.

We won't beat around the bush: The all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger is not a brand new car. This generation launched in 2011, AWD models and all. But for 2013, Chrysler has added an optional sport package to the AWD model, available with both the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the sweet, sweet 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The upgrades for this new sport pack are mainly cosmetic; a gloss black grille, new 19-inch alloy wheels and body-colored rear spoiler make up the list of exterior changes. Inside, there are new sport seats and paddle shifters, and the eight-speed automatic transmission has been reflashed for better performance.

But because vehicles like the Dodge Charger mainly stick out in our minds as being rear-drive bruisers, Chrysler wanted to give us the opportunity to test out the LX platform's foul-weather prowess. And perhaps no place more appropriate to test such a system was way up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the dead of winter.
This past June I spent an excellent day hanging out with Joey Ruiter, driving and discussing his Reboot Buggy project. Before heading home, I let him know that he was more than welcome to keep me abreast of whichever new automotive project he'd get into. You can never have too many car designers and one-off fabricators in your Rolodex, right?

Ruiter recently made good with the follow-up, emailing me with details on this Dodge Challenger A/T Untamed Concept that pushes a lot of hot buttons for the muscle car and off-roading enthusiasts.
This all-terrain Mopar is a lot more than a Challenger body dropped on a truck chassis, too. A materialized version of the A/T would included a completely new, long-travel suspension, skid plates, body armor and rock sliders, and obviously flared fenders to help accommodate a hellacious set of off-road-ready tires. The dramatically revised underpinnings would be topped with a slick graphics package and a killer lower light bar, all making the A/T look quite cohesive in its own, radical way. And the result would be a car no longer limited to mere road-driving.
Auto enthusiasts love a good debate, whether it's Mustang versus Camaro or Ferrari against Lamborghini. But how about a battle between two very different vintages of classic pickup trucks? In this case, the fight is between a 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express and a 1933 Ford Model 46 truck with a flathead V8.
The shootout comes courtesy of the internet series Generation Gap, and its concept is super-simple. One guy prefers classics, and the other likes newer rides. They choose a category, pick two vehicles and put them head to head. In this case, neither is exactly modern, though. The Ford is more than old enough to receive Social Security checks, and the Dodge is hardly a young whippersnapper.
Other than both being pickups, these two models were made to serve very different functions. The Li'l Red Express was basically the progenitor of today's muscle trucks, with a big V8 that made it one of the quickest new models in its day (admittedly, 1979 was a rough time for automotive performance). On the other hand, the '33 Ford was just meant to work, with little pretense for anything else. One of the hosts describes it as "the simplest, most difficult" vehicle he's driven because of the tricky double clutchwork necessary to shift gears. Scroll down to watch the video and try to decide which of these two American classics you would rather have in your garage.
