A long time coming, but Magnum Restoration was doing a restoration on the bird and finished just in time for the Nationals this weekend.

Yes its been two years or so, may like to hear an update. The car has been at Vintage Metal in Georgia since my last posting on it and they did an excellent job. The owner of Vintage Metal Jim Davis has been great to deal with. Car is finished regarding all necessary metal restoration and refurbishing down to the skeleton. The car has a new metal nose and metal rear window plug, the only items fiberglass are the fender scoops. Eric Nelson did a stellar job regarding fabricating and assembling all the internal nose components regarding headlights etc.
I should be receiving the car back in a few weeks, this phase is finally done. Vintage is doing last adjustments with motor, 4 speed trans, seats etc., installed to weight the body and make adjustments. Next is cosmetics, no decision yet who. Lot of components have been restored and ready for the assembly phase.

Bought the 426 Hemi that was in Canada that came out of the 69 Daytona with the missing body.. which they say was lost in a garage fire. We had the cross member altered factory correct for the hemi. The original 440 is a warranty motor from 70, we are going to one day rebuild it, keep it as a part of the car.
Through Jim at Vintage Metal, who does work on projects for Tim Petty at Moonshine Racing in North Carolina, Jim took the motor to him and he was willing to rebuilt it. As a Petty would he did an excellent job. It produced 497hp and 575 torque on the dyno, not bad for stock. Tim and Maurice Petty signed the dyno sheets, very nice of them.

Its been a fun journey so far. Looking forward to the paint stage. Even better is the the assembly stage since that's my part. Thx, Wolf.

Jim Davis there at VMW is a stand up guy and isn't afraid of rust!
You took it to the right place for the body to be overhauled for sure

Think owner, the brother of the deceased owner, said it was around Corpus Christi for a long time, or the Gulf Coast somewhere.. Humid and salty air area..

It was not just rust that made us take the car to this level,..in fact it had very saveable floor pans etc. Beyond that.. the problem was also Snails. They were everywhere in the sub frame rails and in about every hidden crevice of the car,.. dead and alive. Then we thought about the eggs,... the car is done and baby Snails start dropping out of it. Comical,... but we couldn't take a chance. To be sure we agreed with the recommendation to take it down to the skeleton and pressure sanitize every hidden inch. Glad we did, it was quite surprising the amount of dirt and crap that came out that we would not have reached otherwise.

Well at least it looks like the restoration is not going at a snails pace.
And I am sure the car will be far from a slug!  icon_smile_big

A few more of car when in Texas and then in Georgia at Vintage Metal during the beginning of tear down. Apart from original main skeleton and the firewall etc., we did use the original doors, front fenders, hood, trunk lid and wing.
