Well - The Pro Street sold a couple of months ago and, now it is time to start working on my 72 RR/GTX Clone. The plans include a fresh 440 dropped between the fenders, air grabber hood, and a nice fresh coat of GY3 Curious Yellow (AKA Citron Yella) along with black stipes and black interior.  This car has virtually no rust as it has been in north Texas its whole life. 

Cool

Before any work - Start Date 10-18-07

Gotta Luv that Interior

UGLY!!!

Most of the bodywork consisted of ding and dent removal

This was a very rust free car

Can you say Air Grabber??

Cutting in the jambs and undersides

Wish every car had jambs like this one

Passenger door jamb

Who's that hiding behind the door?

The way a Mopar trunk SHOULD look :)

This color looks best outside in the SUN
Pics don't do it justice

Again - I can't wait to take this car outside and give it a proper photo shoot

WE HAVE COLOR!!! And it's Curious Yellow!!!!!

This pic does NOTHING for this color

Closeup ALMOST looks as good as it does in person

I've Upgrade the front brakes to disc, rebuilt entire front end, added sway bar

This is why it's called Curious Yellow
looks yellow in the bright sun but green in the shadows

A-Body Spindles, New Upper & Lower Ball Joints, Poly Bushings in UCA's

New Tie Rod Ends, Sway Bar, and Shocks

New Calipers, Pads, and Hoses

I restored the bezels using a three-step process to keep the wood grain look. I think it came out pretty good

Rebuilt 440 Installed!!!
