It will be interesting to see what unfolds as to what will need replacement. At least it will be well known as to what has been done to this car. Really that car should be sitting in the mezzanine of someones Mopar repair shop as yard art.


 2thumbs  If it wasn't for the last bit of daytona lettering we can all see it just might be much less then yard art.

Do you know what sparked his want to restore it? When I talked to him he said he had no intentions of restoring it. I'm honestly glad he is.

Not for sure, he really had no interest in restoring it.  I'm sure the CCR guys offered him some butt load of cash or something to do it.  I'll know here in a few days when I head down there.

maybe they'll use it to showcase current & debut new AMD (yet to be released) Daytona parts

existing: doors, quarters, roof, rr bumper, glass, mouldings,  frame/firewall/floors/unibody parts

NEW window plug, deck lid, fenders, hood, nosecone??  shruggy

You are probably right.   There is likely a marketing angle to be worked.    2thumbs

A state inspection after it's rebuilt & a state issued VIN tag will solve the problem.  Twocents

As for whether it's still a Daytona, a re-body, a recreation, a replica, a duplicate, a clone, a rotted piece of shit, or whatever you want to call it, it's rare, is well known among the aero car fanatics & pretty much documented. Someone will be happy forking over the money to own it & brag about how they have the famous, "junkyard-ornament-with-stolen-VIN-tag-that-was-rotting-until-a-terrible-reality-show-showed-up-to-restore-it" car.

Also does the car have body numbers anymore? Core support looks missing and trunk gutter looks pretty rough

Simply have ECS make a repro VIN & the rest of the documentation.

ECS makes VIN DECALS for the door on '70's and the dry transfer to "refresh" you dash VIN tag, but TTBOMK they do not make a repro tag itself... but of course I could be wrong.

Why would AMD want to show off how crappy the sheet metal fits, where you gotta cut & splice & re weld everything to make it fit right? shruggy brickwall slap

ECS may not repro the tag it's self but if anyone would know where to have it done I suspect he/they would.  After all it is a part of his/their business to help fix identification problems.  Making a tag is not a big deal.  ECS could put the finishing touch on a tag and be free of being involved in where the tag came from.

Good point. 2thumbs  They however would be able to identify any miss fits to the condition of the car they went on. shruggy

I would think a good selling project for their product would be for just one panel on a solid original car.  This is where most of us find any issues with how good their parts are. slap

I keep reading this, but we had zero issues with fit.. all pans firewall to rear bumper, inner / outer rear wheel wells, rear bumper attach "valance", rear leaf spring mounts, front right frame rail, torsion bar crossmember and a door sill, along with both door skins. Rear frame rails came out of Classics in California.... not sure whos they were, but they fit perfect as well. Sounds like it's a good thing I had those OEM quarter panels done in 1979! lol

You can have a dash tag remade. I know a place that's licensed to make them, I had a replacement made for my sons 70 satellite.

Interesting, considering in most states and provinces it's even a crime to remove one. Fender tags and door decals a non-issue but the actual VIN plate is tabo to even remove to paint... but oh look.. mine's over there..  icon_smile_big
