Wow Allen looks like you had to make some tough choices. It's great to hear that all your projects are coming together. You sure have great taste in Mopars 2thumbs

I have to ask though...did you ever come across a Lift Off Hood car?

Yes, the A4/M6S 1969 Hemi Road Runner is a keeper!

Breaking news... I MAY have finally located the donor car for Red Dawn...  a 1969 Coronet non-air car with only a few issues.  There is some rust below the battery tray (surprised Huh?  lol ), and the drivers side aft portion of the frame rail has some rust thru along with the transmission cross member (not an issue, the Daytona crossmember will be retained).  The frame rail rust problem appears to be primarily in the lower cap of the aft part of the frame rail, but I am awaiting further pictures....

First, the "good" pictures:

Also, I am organizing the Daytona and spare Superbird parts (All the parts for my FY1 Superbird have been placed on or in the car, so are not on the shelving).  Still missing some parts for the Daytona...  Tongue  Also, misplaced a box of parts (headlight doors, headlight pivots, parking light assemblies, etc) that I need to hunt down...

The selected primary provider of restoration tooling fixtures, DaveCo, delivered the handling & storage fixture yesterday and verified it works!  The handing cart for the uni-body remains in work, as does a side task of installing a modern battery in a B_I_T_D empty battery case (unused, one of the cases obtained through NHOA member Dave Jones in the mid 1980s) ....

This project looks great. I think the daytonas are the better looking of the two wing cars. Still have the Superbird lower fender extensions? Consider selling or loaning out as templates?
