Customer Restification - 1969 Plymouth Road Runner
I will be detailing the restoration of a customer's 1969 Road Runner here.
To start off, I am calling this car a restification because it will be 1/2 restoration and 1/2 custom modification. The car is an original 383 4-speed Road Runner. The numbers matching engine is being rebuilt by a local machine shop and is getting .030 flat top pistons, a nice Comp Cams XE275 cam, and a set of Edelbrock aluminum heads. Desktop dyno puts it at 515hp at the crank! Other plans include full media blasting before any body work. Then, the plan is to paint her 1969 Q5 Seafoam Turquoise Poly and install a white interior. Additional plans are for some nice aftermarket wheels which will show off a 4-wheel disc brake setup.
Car will be here later this week and I will start thrashing on her right away, so check back frequently
10-6-11 - Car arrived this afternoon at about 4:30. She's going to be a challenge but I am sure I am up to it.
