70 Challenger back on the ground
« on: May 07, 2018, 03:47:30 PM »
Spring is here,I hope everyone had a good winter. I know I did. The last couple of months, I removed the spring relocation boxes from the car, patched the frame rails. The car was mini tubed years ago and had the leaf springs moved in. I didnt like the job as it was done.Found another e-body housing it was cheaper than buying new seats and welding them in.No worries about pinion angle either. Found a set of XHD 440 leaf springs complete and pretty good shape . Every thing is coming together  3.55 gears and Randies ring and pinion aggressive clutch type posi. New axle seals and Felpro gaskets.I think it sits a little high in the back. The car here is seen with 295/50 R15 on 15x10 cragers. (I would have loved to found a A body housing and put the tires inside the car). I'm very pleased with the way it sits. The BF goodrich tires were bought in the fall of 1989 along with those cragers and have less than two miles of drive way driving.   One door more,some brake work and install a trunk floor  and repair the roof is the last of my to do list.It was born a 340  but now has  a .030 over 440 , A 4 spd with a pistol grip and a newly assembled rear end. Thanks to every one that has help motivate me back into action.

Looking good, too bad I didn't know you needed a rear end housing/axels/brakes I have one here sitting doing nothing.

Congrats on your progress! I see you're in "The Hammer". Are you up on the mountain or downtown? I worked in Hamilton for over 30 years and know most of the bodyshops and guys if it'd help at all.  :cheers:
