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!

Ben




Can you have him get a pic of the backside of 500 emblem?
I went today, no progress, Nick has taken his annual vacation... Got a couple pics of the emblems as requested

Can we assume those front emblems are irreplaceable?

Wonder if that's my former Y2 C500 I traded from Pete ( now B5 for Allen K ). It used to run the streets of the New England area...…….

Video made at the same time I took the pictures, I was actually filming the windshield/dash removal!
If somebody can imbed it instead of just a link?

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...).

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.

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.

At 44:09 in the video, "yes" is shown on the driver's side tail light housing. Anyone seen that on other 500s? Any ideas on what it signifies?

Related info - Back many decades ago, there was a guy selling Creative take off parts at a swap meet in Michigan.
He had the front bumpers, bumper brackets and the valance, all in one big assemply, for sale. 

Said they were take off parts from Daytona conversions.   Twocents
