She was complete when I bought with original from factory vinyl top and also paint, body etc but of course not in good conditions... only had missed one R/T emblem from Fender. One thing is true, the pics are showing the worst but when I saw her for first time sure did look a lot better because it was completelly assemblied LOL. You are seeing the bones.

after first season of rebuilt I got:

on Last reply you can see the still the original buckets and upholstery over them, also rear bench... BUT CLEAN, LOL... they are the same seats showed on an earlier pic Wink

Dash was of course cracked, I repaired with fiberglass and paint. carpet was new and lower interior panels were painted with an enamel can, but color wasn't close to the original. Was just for protection since they wer A LOT CHALKY AND SCHRATCHED... Console also blue, but lid was virtually destroyed so I intalled the only one I found, a black one.

It came as all 74 Chargers assemblied here in Venezuela with:
Standar drivers side mirror.
Standart cluster.
Am Radio but powered antenna
SE grilles.
Tinted windows
A/C
Buckets, but shortbacks.
Tuff wheel.
Rallye looks but not necesaryly complete package ( only midside stripes, HD brakes and bulged hood ).
Drivetrain: 400 4bb Tq, 727, 8.75 3:23 open. Non emission controls.

All Chargers called R/Ts

First time I've seen these pics Nacho. You really brought it a long way yesnod 2thumbs Those seats look goof compared to the seat we have,. They look like they came from a different car like a Chevy or something. I thought you had a Rallye dash though.

After some years driving it I decided go to the next step... those days were when I become member of D-C.com comunity ( 2001 ). One of the pics above was on the members rides section... do you remember ? Venezuelan_RT_74

then I began to know what I had and started to know what I wished to get.

on next step I was searchin specially to get better the interior... I decide go with WHITE for two reason: one is becsue blue parts are really hard to find, and two I found a nice deal/trade and got the white interior... not perfect but decent for used parts.

Searching on ebay, dealing here and there not without difficulties because the hard economical situation here, trading with some of you guys I got this:

I have some better pics to this reply of those days, but since I'll show how is now my car at the end, and interior haven't changed then I'll show later

no she hadn't rallye cluster... NOW SHE DOES Cheesy

About buckets... even they look a lot different, they really aren't. In fact uses the same bottom section and also the back panels. If you detail them they are practically the same but without headrest Wink

Later I will reply the upgrades and new parts I have got and installed on her...

on august this year I decided go for a new body job... 3rd step of rebuilt. She began to rust on lower quarters ( again ) and had some chips because the DOORS of the car at the sides etc... I already had a repro set of rallye stripes made in here by a graphic desing freind of mine on white reflective, but I wasn't to glue over all the chps and "old paint"


P.S.: here is the reply when I post the body job process but I already posted the pics on another thread... but DAMN I CAN'T FIND IT...
