Such awesome work, I'm loving all the updates. Is the goal to have this ready for the Americarna show in November, assuming it still goes on? I'd loosely had that show in the back of my mind as the first for my car and it'd be awesome to see the Daytona in person.

Chrysler Engineering engine EX-144.  It was in the car Feb. 1969.
I'd think a 50 year old race car with a numbers matching engine would be rare.

Thanks Steve!! 

Here's what's meant by fender droop.
Fender drops above the wheel, going forward.
#88 fender versus a production line fender. I lined them up, as you can see.
Oddly enough, there are no cut and weld marks on the drooped part.
Maybe something that Nichels Engineering tweaked from a skin?

Bud Moore was doing drop snout cars in Trans Am.  Maybe Dodge was doing custom fender stampings for their teams?
