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.

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.

Meet the refreshed 2015 Dodge Charger; notice anything different? You would have to be pretty farsighted to miss the sedan's new Dart-like nose, and it's likely going to be quite polarizing to the car's fans. Gone are the previous furrowed, aggressive headlights in favor of a wider, friendlier look.
While the more rounded headlights and narrower grille are going to be the first thing most people notice, Dodge claims its designers have made changes to nearly every panel on the Charger. The hood dips down deeper at the front, and the doors show off a more angled version of the car's shoulder blister. LED running lights and taillights are standard on all models, and SXT and RT trims get LED foglights. Even though the front might not be as intimidating, Dodge has hung onto the sedan's muscular stance with angular contours making up the rest of the redesign.
Under the hood is the same engine range you've come to know over recent years. Both the 5.7-liter V8 and the 3.6-liter V6 return for 2015, with the Hemi making 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque, and the standard Pentestar outputting 292 hp and 260 lb-ft. All models are now equipped with Chrysler's TorqueFlight eight-speed automatic as standard. Fuel economy for V8 Chargers is predicted at 16 miles per gallon city and 25 mpg highway, compared to 15 mpg / 25 mpg last year with a five-speed automatic. All models also come with electric power steering, and the axles are cast from aluminum to save weight.
It's frightening to think of how quickly the mice would have overtaken us if we hadn't stayed one step ahead of them with better mousetraps. We'll never have to worry about that in our relentlessly re-engineered world, though. Case in point: Chrysler has been granted a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office for an improved design of the already wondrous Stow 'n' Go seating found in the automaker's Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans.
Introduced in 2005, the Stow 'n' Go was improved in 2008, and based on the drawings of this third-generation improvement, the new design appears to allow stowage of the second row of seats without having to move the front-row seats forward as much. It look like it also involves fewer operations and moving parts, with a portion of the seatback being incorporated into the flat floor when the seats are stowed, as opposed to having a completely separate cover.
It's possible that the innovation may appear on the next-generation minivans expected in 2015, but Chrysler isn't commenting on the patent.
Before social media ever existed, if automotive enthusiasts wanted to be noticed or recognize other fans, they joined a car club. For Dodge muscle car lovers from 1968 through 1971, that group was known as the Scat Pack. Just like the Charger, Challenger and Dart nameplates, it looks like the Scat Pack could be getting a resurrection by Chrysler.
Automotive News is reporting that Chrysler recently renewed its trademark on the Scat Pack name, and while this is in no way a guarantee that the name will return, AN talked to Tim Kuniskis, Dodge President and CEO, who stoked the fire a little more. In the article, Kuniskis said that the name is "a very important part of our history" and added that "we like the whole idea of having a Scat Pack of cars." Scat Pack models were identified by their bumblebee stripes and helmet-wearing bumblebee logo, and the idea of a modern Scat Pack doesn't seem all that outlandish in light of recent vehicles like the Charger SRT Super Bee and the Ram 1500 Rumble Bee Concept.
What do you think, is this a cool idea, or is it just an unwelcome bit of nostalgia? Have you say in Comments.
