69 GTX -Southern Motors

I like watching the vids they put up on Youtube of what they have for sale. Just dreaming.. Noticed this one had just been uploaded last night. Bit pricey for a 440 i thought at $52900. But what a car. https://www.southernmotors.com/Inventory/Details/5071 vid: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n4Wwq2QQk...

I saw that Rowan Atkinson was driving the 66 Barracuda. They didn't show much of the Dart. 90% of coverage was of the leaders as per.

Jeez, imagine driving that around Cornwall!

Highback buckets must be rare in a New Yorker?

SCTA rulebook says not to fill the corners of gussets. Not sure why, but that’s what it says.
Dirt Trap / Drainage?
Added stress in the corners?

Re: How hard can it be?

Well we finally settled on a replacement for the old expensive Gp27 resto 'red top' battery. Did consider going down the smaller Gp24 equivalent size battery (70Ah, 600 CCA) and buying a 'battery topper' to make it look like an original type battery. But at an extra $100 or so plus shipping time & c...

Re: How hard can it be?

It has been constantly on charge via 'smart charger' which ramps up & down, dissipates etc.
But that might be it's downfall.
May have kept the volts up but not the Amps.
Our new version of the 'resto' red top battery says not to use a smart charger or even a jump pack.

Re: How hard can it be?

Thanks Dave, comprehensive as usual. I'll have a read a bit later, i'm too busy celebrating with a cold one. Derek wins the bonus point - a different battery turned it over. :woohoo: Obviously 12.8v isn't what it used to be. (the one that worked read 12.9) So the next purchase will be a battery as s...

Re: How hard can it be?

Thanks guys. I'll check all connections are clean etc but I'm usually quite careful about that. I will try another battery just in case the 12.8v wasn't doing the job. Just happen to have one in a car about 7 feet away. Then will try starter out of the car. Question - Just a jump lead on each starte...

How hard can it be?

Thought I'd fit a new starter motor on the Dodge as it's been turning over slowly recently. Initially I put that down to the old red top battery but as it shows 12.8v after being on 'smart charge', I thought maybe the starter may be past it's best, it's been on the car since '04 at least. Had an OEM...

I thought it was from the lip and the repeater - but I saw a coronet mentioned and didnt know offhand what the flank of those was like.
I'd have thought a 68 charger lying around would be worth dragging out of the woods...
Yeah, but they're quite common.
