71 Dodge Charger RT 440 Magnum

Post by SA351GT » Mon 03 Sep 2012, 16:58

I bought this car a little over 2 years ago. Progress has been slow, but I've bought most of the stuff needed to complete it. All suspension bits + Bilstein shocks, Wilwood brakes (thanks Gunter), Magnum 500 wheels etc.

Now; you'll need a local Valiant Charger to keep your Dodge Charger company during you guys' 'cold' winter nights! :lol:

Seriously; that'll be a neat build once you get your 1971 done. :)

Thanks guys.

Daan & Alvin - unfortunately money is very tight at the moment so things have been going very slow. Too many imcomplete projects - will need to get rid of a few and rather concentrate on finishing this one soon
