Said it’s car # 47 built if that helps. His show is great. This one was more of an extra after hours episode. Sound was pretty bad on this one.

If one is luckily enough to have their fender tag or BCsheet, then there's a somewhat barometer of telling where you stand in terms of the C500 production run.. All Charger 500's have 925 starting their VON, the last three digits usually corresponds to the placement of the vehicle related to others... Not bullet proof for I'm sure there were orders that were cancelled.....

Guys, this is XX29L9B144173, I had a long chat with the owner, Gene, and he told me he had contacted Daniel in the past. He says he is pretty sure the fender tag is somewhere in his files, and that he never looked for a broadcast sheet... so one might turn up as it is disassembled I looked quickly, none on the glovebox or under front seats...
I am good friends with Nick, and asked if I could assist in making sure that all the special 500 stuff would be redone right, even if the car will not be concours restored!
I'll keep this forum informed of the progress of the resto as much as I can,

Yeah I spent about 1-2 hours on the phone with Gene the owner over the past day. Very nice guy. I am helping him get a few missing pieces for the car, and he is still looking for the broadcast sheet he pulled out of the car early on in its life.

Danny.. Is it a very early C500... Like Richard's 610 car, I notice the body plug in the firewall by the windshield wiper motor..............

Haha, yes, I've asked Nick to tag everything to i.d. location, etc... noticed they seem to be all different!
Right now, Nick and owner are still debating what kind of work he wants done, and after discussing with Dan, he might want to go more ''correct'', but I am sure none of the deviations from stock would be irreversible. I've noticed that often, long-time owners who want to get their old car restored are not as much into 100% correctness, and would rather have the car as they actually drove it, with period mods...

Interior teardown starting, and one nice surprise in a plastic bag under the passenger seat!
Original windshield was carefully taken out, should be re-used, to get access to the dash bolts.
The wiring did not suffer too much, with no aftermarket gauges or radio added early in life, like many of those cars... Again, original will be cleaned, repaired as needed and re-used.
Lots of the original Y2 Yellow peeking out (It will go back to Y2)
More here as it progresses, and on Nick's Garage on YouTube!

Disassembly continues, this car is sooooo clean! floors are perfect, in fact the only damage is on the passenger side, and it was done when they took it out of storage earlier this year...
There is only some scaling on the trunk floor... Let's see how it looks after it comes back from the dipper!

Body and parts are back from chemical stripping, and it's even better than expected!
It's at the body shop now, https://showtimemusclecars.com/welcome/
Here are some pics, I took more than 150, almost every square inch!
I was surprised to see that it started out as a stripe delete car, as it has holes for the R/T emblem on the quarters, which you could not see under the ''500'' stripe...
Should be in paint in 8-12 weeks at the most, as Nick has promised the owner to try and finish it within one year (Which is about how long it would have taken for another well-known shop to simply look at it...).

I was surprised to see that it started out as a stripe delete car, as it has holes for the R/T emblem on the quarters, which you could not see under the ''500'' stripe...

FYI all 500's left the assembly line as V88 stripe delete cars. There is probably some forgotten box somewhere with about 1000 69 Charger "R/T" quarter panel emblems in it.

... and thanks for the updates  2thumbs

You are welcome!
So they all have holes on the quarter panels that had to be filled by Creative? Also in lead?
Thanks,

It seems that the holes were done with plastic body filler as seen on some cars with the filler swiped in the inside of the quarter to fill the holes. I can't tell on mine because it was repainted.

Thanks for those close up shots of the rear window plug and lead melted away. I had not seen that in detail before.

Check out the two front lower metal splash shields where creative industries cut so they could pull the front bumper off with the brackets all connected. I don't see the extra pieces in the pics with all the parts, so they should still be attached to the car. Just another detail that has to be duplicated using the exact same pieces when reassembled.
