Have thoroughly enjoyed this thread so far. Poor car was rough. Most would have said junk it or part it out. Glad you decided to save her. Great work!
Thanks. Appreciate your offer. That's a nice find. I already have the 1970 Plymouth Service Manual. Got it from Year One. Wouldn't have thought of doing this resto without it.
Thanks for the compliment. Even though it's not the most desirable car to restore, I didn't want to do a half-baked job on it. You learn more by doing it the right way. And all these things I've done will be repeated again on the 63 & 69. BTW, I'm looking around for a 69 Galaxie for that restoration. Mine is too badly rusted to do. It would need much more than the Plymouth (practically every body panel and the frame is rotted out). But it is a good parts donor. Looking for something from down south or out west. Something that isn't rusted (other than surface rust). A few dings is OK. If you ever run into something like that down your way I'd appreciate it if you could let me know. Thanks and have a good 4th. Oh, and here are a couple more pix of the rest of my parts stash. Before you think that I'm rich or something, I'm not. It took 12 years to track all this down and a lot of hard work to earn the money to pay for it. The first 2 are some NOS parts I have for the GP. The last 3 are NOS parts for the 63 & 69. I have about 2600 parts including wiring, weatherstripping, moldings and bumpers. At least in that department I'm ready.I admire your dedication. A four door with a straight six and you put that level of effort into it. It's going to be a cool car. Nice garage!
