Shop Update for Early August 2019

It’s been about three weeks since I’ve posted any update on the shop goin’ ons. There have been quite a few, actually so many is the reason why I’ve not been able to post much. I’ll post what I can remember, but I doubt it will be half of it.

First is the Screamin’ Woody

The motor is finished and installed with the fresh transmission. The car is about 15-18 hours from being Race Ready.

Petty Tribute

All of the trim is on. I bought a 10-circuit wiring harness to replace the 60-year-old stock wiring. I also bought a Competition Engineering aluminum dash to give it that NASCAR look, and a plasma cutter to more easily trim to correct fit. I’ve not yet decided on the gauges, but have bought the switches. The motor is ready and a Passion Performance Hemi 4-speed overdrive transmission ought to be here in another week or so. I found some rattle can blue-green that comes close to matching the vinyl of the seat tops, and I’ll remove and spray the metal interior trim soon. I’ve made a decision on the wheels – but not yet ordered them. This is a car that will stay on the lift of the stacker, and go to the races with me for off track duty.

The Mohawk

The Mohawk is a very neglected 30-year-old project, which has spent a lot of time at a couple shops rotting. It has been back in my hands for a couple of years now, and I’m starting to give it my attention.

To refresh memories, it started life a 63 GT Hawk. The “Mo” part is that it will be Mopar powered. I have a 25-year-old “Fresh” Aluminum head 340ci motor. That’s to say that it was built by the first shop 25 years ago. Pulled a head and the pan for an inspection, and turned the rotating around a couple cycles. All looks and feels well, but the outside needs a wire brushing and paint. The first guy also grafted on some fins that look horrible. I bought a fiberglass front sheet metal clip from a 53-54 Commander about 25 years ago, but I’m going to see if I can find real metal. I have a pair of fins from a 1960 Plymouth that will replace the ones grafted on.

At the second shop, the body stayed outside with the windows open for a couple of decades. The floors are shot and the body has a lot of surface flash. I’ll take it to get Dustless blasted, and then primered, so I can see exactly what body work needs to be done. The second shop convinced me that I needed to make a tube chassis for it, and grafted on the Fat Man Mustang II front end that I’d bought for the original frame. I think the problem was the first shop butchered the frame and the Fat Man front clip was far from on straight. The rear end is a Mopar 8.75″. All of it was rusty from so many years sitting in the weeds at the second shop. The chunk in the 8.75″ was locked up to where it had to be removed to move the car. I don’t know what is salvageable on the new brakes and front end.

Everything was stripped off the tube chassis frame, some added strength welded in, and I did a little grinding and smoothing. Then I took the frame to get blasted and Powder-coated semi-gloss black.

I picked it up from the powder coater and it looked good, so I took the axle housing and leaf springs for same treatment.

I’ll pick up the axle and springs tomorrow and set up an area to reassemble the chassis. I ordered a blasting hopper, and will bead blast the axles, which have a lot of flash on them. Like all projects before (the 46 Olds, the Thug, Screamin Woody, my Magnum, and the Petty Tribute – this will most likely take a year of two. Stay tuned for Updates.

The Thug

My racing season is pretty much over for this year. I traded my motorhome in on a 2020 that I ordered. It won’t be ready until October some time. I sold my stacker and ordered a new one to match the coach, and it won’t be ready until November. The new coach is three feet longer, so the new stacker will be three feet shorter. The Thug is ready to go, and I might take it to the next SHRA race.

New Old Aluminum Trailer

I bought an early 90s Aluminum trailer off Jim Bailey. It appears to have been well cared for. I’ve done some work, like mount a 12000# winch and motorcycle chalks. I bought the Screamin’ Woody back from Indiana; and took my Son’s and my Harleys to ride in Colorado in it. Nice light trailer. All of the bearings now have new grease.

It’s in the process of being stripped and repainted White with Red/White/Blue stripes on from three sides, and the Texas Flag on the rear door. I’ll outfit it more to my needs as I have time. Already painted the A-Frame replaced the electric jack – twice. Need to mount a jack pouch, radio, a couple roof vents, and a few other conveniences, but after the inside is painted.

I suspect it will be finished this next week, before I take a week to stay at lake to get some work done there.

Odds and Ends

Spring Cleaning

I have a man in his early 70s who is my “Shop Rat”M-F 8-4. He keeps the place clean, does the yard work other than mowing (which I do), accepts deliveries on the days I’m not there, washes cars, etc.

I also have a racing bud working there about two days a week on the race cars and the cars I’m getting ready to sell. It is my plan to sell off about 2/3 of my stuff (cars and parts), and then build a smaller shop close to my lake house (100 miles) away. I want to move to the lake full time instead of commuting. That’s why there’s the thrash to get shit down.

Anyway, with three of us running around jumping from project to project, stuff doesn’t get put away well, and is often lost or put away dirty. Last week I spent three days solid, taking stuff out one of the four containers of parts, cleaning and wrapping; throwing out any junk and making sure everything gets put into the proper bin.

I’m about 7/8 finished with the one that was the biggest mess. I’m going to wait until it is cooler before tackling the others, as I about keeled over a half-dozen times working in the container on 100 degree days. I’m not taking the heat as well as I use to.

Trucks

I put bed saddle bags in my Ram, like I’d done for my daughters F150 – back when it was mine. I bought a ladder that mounts on the tailgate, to make it easier to get my fat ass in the bed. It wouldn’t work with my rollup bed cover, so I mounted it on my daughter’s truck – so her 7 months pregnant ass can get in the bed. I found a side mount ladder that works for my truck and installed it.

Sold my 58 Dodge Truck

The Magnum GT, Viper GTS, 67 Marlin, 78 Diplomat, 86 Grand National, 67 Barracuda, Sixpack Superbird and Genesis are all ready for new homes.

Daldavco & Bloomin’ Blinds of The Woodlands

Been spending a lot of time on the business end of things with that. Yesterday I went on an Installation with Dallas.

I’ve had a ton of other time consuming stuff happening. And convinced this retirement is going to kill me. I’ve worked hard all of my life, but never this hard!

1979 Dodge Magnum GT For Sale

Maybe the best GT left!

The most rare of the Magnums. Dodge only made the first generation Magnum for two years – 1978 & 1979. It was initially made to replace the dying Charger as the B-Body muscle car for Dodge. However, Dodge got cold feet over the radical front end styling and hung onto the slow selling Charger for 1978, just in case. The Magnum was a big hit for 1978 and the Charger was dropped. Only about 5% of the Magnums were the GT model, which had heavy duty suspension, a engine tuned look dash and console plate, and big wheel flares.

As the 1979 Magnums started to trickle out there was an Arab Oil Embargo / Gas Crisis, with long gas lines for expensive gas – and the day you bought you gas was based on your license plate. This killed Magnum sales and the B-Body was forever dropped, to be replaced by the smaller J-Body (Stretched Aspen/Volare) Mirada.

The 1979s are far more rare than the 1978s, and the 1979 GTs are rarer than Hen’s teeth. My first new car was a Magnum, and I’ve owned over 20 since. This is the only GT I’ve ever seen in person!

I bought this car in 1999, from the broker of the original owner in Georgia. I replaced the 85mph speedometer with 67000 miles with a very expensive NOS Police Certified 140mph speedo.

This car is loaded with the E58 Police motor (360Ci 4bbl) with dual exhaust. The original plastic thermoquad carb was warped (as most do in time), and so I decided to go for Performance with an Edelbrock Performer Aluminum 4bbl Intake and 600cfm Performer carb. I also swapped the flaky stock ignition with a Mopar Performance ignition box and distributor. The car goes like a Raped Ape – well for a Disco Era Muscle Car. See below video I made today.

The paint and leather are in great condition. The headlights are clear. The intermittent wipers work, as does the power windows and locks. The car has leather wrapped steering, pedal dress up and floor console. The AC blew cold last month, but not as cold today with 96 degrees. I assume there might be a O-Ring leak as it was cold for about 4 months since I last recharged it. There are no chips in the glass or cracks in the dash. The photos speaks for the car. It is most likely the very best GT left on Earth. I wouldn’t think twice of driving this car cross country.

I love this car, and the only reason I’m selling is that in my mid-60s, it’s time to downsize my life. I have 31 cars and need to sell about 3/4 of them. Those ready to sell now can be found at www.DaveSchultz.com. It is located in Beasley TX. The reason for the Georgia tags is I never titled in my name. It’s been a museum car, driven occasionally to keep gas fresh and car exercised. The Georgia title has the buyer’s name blank.

This car is a rare time capsule and well worth the FIRM PRICE OF:

For Sale 2017 Entegra Anthem 42DEQ Coach

I just placed an order on a 2020 Entegra Cornerstone, which will take 3-5 months to come in. I’m offering my 2017 Entegra Anthem for trade-in plus 10% (the sales tax savings I lose for not trading in).

$264,000. SOLD

This year and model with this mileage 31,000 is retailing for $290K and street price is usually $279K. Retail for new 2019 is $563,999 and street price is about $400,000. https://www.entegracoach.com/build-price/

This coach easily tows a 32″ stacker trailer with two cars and a golfcart at 75mph with the cruise control. Photo taken June 2019 heading to Kentucky.

The Sales Brochure Description

This baby is loaded. 4 TVs, King Size Air Number Bed, Sofa air bed, Fire Place, outside Cooler/Freezer to keep your beer ice cold, Big man size shower, dishwasher, washer and dryer, aqua hot system, in floor heating, HD TV satellite dish, china cabinet, and more. 450hp Cummins and Alison 3000 transmission easily has you passing the big trucks up hills with the cruise on.

I’ve had 11 motorhomes, and this one is the most comfortable to drive. I pull a 32′ stacker trailer with two full size 60’s cars and golf cart easily at 75 mph.

I take to the factory in Indiana (good place to spend a couple of days sightseeing) every fall to winterize, do a PDI and fix whatever they find wrong. I have a mobile motorhome mechanic come change oil and service generator every 7500 miles for $330.

Frankly the front air doesn’t cool real well right now, but the other two keeps the coach cool without it. I was going to have the factory service this Fall. I’m pricing this cheap enough to where you can fix it and still be way ahead of of the street price. I priced so low so I can still use until the new one comes in. I just need a $1,000 deposit to hold it for you until then. If not sold under those conditions, I’ll just trade in for the $240,000 and save the sales tax on that amount. They’ll turn around and advertise for $290,000 and sell for $279,000.

Engine, transmission and structure still under warranty.

Tube Chassis Barracuda Roller For Sale

No Passes Since Restoration. Perfect For “No Prep”

This car is currently in “Turn Key” form, and I have about $70K in building this car, but all of the calls I was getting were wanting to put their own drive train in, so I’ll pull the engine and transmission and sell ready for your drive train. I’ll leave all electronics including the ignition box. I’ll leave the radiator. All I’ll take is the motor, transmission, torque converter and Flex plate.

  • Tube Chassis by Jeffers
  • Fiberglass front Clip

I have a signed title from the Seller with open buyer, but I never titled. I’ll sell on Bill of Seller and give you the Title I was given.

I’ve given you all of the information and detailed photos I have. For a low price of $30k anyone who knows anything about drag racing has all the information needed to either be the first to jump all over this car or move on. I expect the car car to go quick. I’m told the car with an iron head/block 440 and a 7727 weighed 2300 pounds with a 180 pound driver. The car is set up for someone 5’10” to 6’4″. I’m 5’11” and my son is 6’3″ and we both fit comfortably.

The car is located at my race shop in Beasley, TX, which is 40 miles south of Houston on I 69. I’m generally at my shop Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays 8-4.

I’m way over the bag limit on street and race cars and only want to trade for dead Presidents. If you know someone or a group that might be interested in a Superman Deal at a Clark Kent price, please a link to this.

1978 Dodge Diplomat for Sale

Original Condition by 2nd Owner. It can only be original once!

About 15 years ago, I bought this car (through a broker) from the original owner. It has the original Spanish Gold Metallic paint in very good condition and the original interior is excellent. The car runs and drives great and I’d not have a hesitation of driving that car anywhere.

$7900 Firm

The one deviation from stock was that I replaced the cast iron 2bbl on the rare for Diplomat 360ci, with an Edelbrock Performer Intake and Performer Carburetor. I also replaced the Leanburn ignition with a Mopar Performance. It really woke up the performance.

This is a very nice original car that drive and rides as if it were new. I love the car and hate to part with it, but I’m trimming my collection down to move to a smaller place. This is one of my cars that has to go.

The Photos tell the story.

30′ Aluminum Stacker Trailer For Sale

Sold

Not all Stacker trailers are created equal!

I’m selling a highly optioned 30′ Aluminum Stacker Race Trailer that I had custom built by Intech Trailers about 4 years ago. It will cost about $100K to have this exact trailer made. Features, in no particular order, include:

  • All aluminum construction for great weight savings and better road stability at high speeds. Previously, I had an all steel Stacker trailer the same size, but with far fewer options on 16″ G-Rated Goodyear tires. It weighed 22,500 pounds loaded and I’d average 10 blowouts a year. I had this trailer built to my very high specifications and loaded with the same cars, golf cart, tools, and far more parts & supplies — it weighs only 14,200 pounds. I barely know it’s behind my bus type motorhome.
  • I added 1′ increased interior height for 60’s full size cars, but still a legal 13′ 2″ — and goes under the 13.6 low bridges.
  • This trailer is set up for two LARGE drag cars. We load a 65 Dodge Coronet and a 60 Plymouth Station Wagon, with a golf cart having a roof – and we travel cross county with ease.
  • Triple 7,000 pound spread axles with high speed, H-Load rated Goodyear tires. I’ve NEVER had a flat and often travel at 75mph on Texas highways.
  • Optional .050 Aluminum skin thickness for a far better look over .040. It also avoids warping in extreme hot or cold weather and dents from hail.
  • Wrapped last year in Antique Bronze. Was previously blue.
  • The Roof is heavy duty braced to walk on observation.
  • The attic is heavy duty braced to transport a golf cart
  • Attic starts 6’5″ from floor for tall people to stand upright
  • Full width rear door goes wall to wall to make it easier to load wide cars
  • Aircraft cargo strips and Heavy Duty D-Rings
  • Floor made of Extruded Aluminum
  • Tongue extended 1′ for tighter turns and backing with out damage to trailer or towing vehicle
  • Tongue box to house jack hydraulics (instead of taking up a floor cabinet) plus two storage compartments. I have two pneumatic hydraulic jacks and an impact wrench with air for on one side and trailer’s 35 amp shore line on the other side.
  • Lift pump in floor compartment
  • Dove tail rear for easy loading of low cars and low headers. I’ve never hung a car up loading in trailer or on lift.
  • Spare tire mount with new H-Load Rated 17.5″ A Spare tire on front of trailer. A flat (NEVER HAD ON ON THIS TRAILER) can be quickly changed without going into the trailer.
  • All LED lights. Interior, Loading, Pit, Cabinet, under lift lights are bright low watt DC LEDs.
  • All Driving lights are LED.
  • There are 6 Deep Cycle batteries in floor compartment, which can power the trailer (lights, lift, jack) for better than a week in the pits and away from shore power.
  • Completely wired for 35 AMP shore power service that automatically powers the numerous 120V outlets and heavy duty battery charger. Circuit breaker box, battery charger and master cutoff switch in street-side upper compartment.
  • All aluminum lift with three removable center sections — to service the underside of the race car.
  • Two more in-floor spare tire compartments, one containing a new matching spare tire (never on ground) and the other supplies.
  • Wall fender compartments with shelving on street side.
  • In floor winch compartment with wired 12,000 pound electric winch. Also has a slide in pulley for loading the bottom car, while the lift has a pulley mounted to load the top car.
  • Full width upper/lower cabinets with stainless steel work bench and full length closet in front of the trailer.
  • Double side doors that open wide enough to drive a Golf-Cart in.
  • Slide out door step.
  • Puck door lock for greatest security
  • Wall mounted race car tire holder in attic
  • Wall mounted 5 jug holder in attic
  • Wall mounter jack pouch
  • Built in Tool Chest
  • Large door mounted cabinet with drop down table
  • Front & Back wall mounted strap holders with closed cell foam rubber under it to protect wall
  • 4′ Rubbermaid wall rack to hold extension cords, blower, broom and mop
  • Extra long aluminum lift ramps to load low cars with headers
  • Extra long full length aluminum door ramp with lock downs — for loading long cars
  • Heavy Duty 30,000 pound safety tongue – for safe towing
  • Wall mounted Fire Extinguisher Holder
  • Inverter that converts DC to AC – I use on bench for weather station and computer. Master cutoff switch.

I’ve pulled this stacker all over the country with a 43′ motorhome with a 450hp Cummins. It tracks real well behind the coach and I pass trucks going up the mountains. My deal is that I’ll be ordering a 45′ Coach and as such, I need to step down to a 30′ stacker to stay legal. This trailer was built to last for decades with good care and annual axle greasing.

My opinion is that Intech makes the very best aluminum trailers, and they have not experienced the quality/welding problems racers have experienced with trailers like ATC. They do cost more — but are worth it. A trailer with all of these important options (extra height, 17.5 H-Load (and 86 MPH Speed) Rated wheels and tires including two spares, thick skin, extra roof and attic bracing…) will cost you around $100K to order. This trailer is ready to go. will last you years. I’ll sell for $60K. I believe it is a 2015.

3000 Mile 1999 Viper GTS For Sale

As a young adult with dreams of great financial success, I read Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”. One of the big points of the book is to have a huge goal, which is unattainable by most, and to reward yourself hugely for obtaining it. You then put a visual reminder of the reward somewhere that you are constantly reminded of the goal and your reward.

In 1996 I set another such a goal, which was the second big goal I’d set and promised myself a big reward for hitting. In June 1998, I achieved that goal, and my reward had been a new Viper GTS. I Immediately went to the Dodge dealer and ordered a black with black interior with a stripe delete. Because of a strike causing a shortage of the front body work of the car, it took 13 months before I picked the car up.

I have put less than 4000 miles on the car since. The car looks and drives like brand new. 1999 was by far the very best year of the Viper. This car holds a lot of sentimental value to me. However, I’m now in my mid sixties, and in a mode of reducing the things I just don’t need. I have 31 cars, trucks and motorcycles; and I just don’t need near that many – so everything is for sale, some priced to move faster than others. This is the car I least want to sell, but I will for the right price. That price is $60K FIRM.

Below is a gallery of photos just taken of the car. It is in Flawless condition. Click the small photos to view the full size version. Some browsers will require a right-click to open in a new browser.

If you are interested in purchasing this car, call or text me at 713-899-7704. Don’t bother offering less or a trade, as I’m not interested.

Drag Pak #42 For Sale

This 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is as picked up from the factory. In 2009, “Connected Racers” applied to be able to buy the 100 Drag Paks built for 2009 to compete in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Indexes. I got #42, which is a grey interior 6.1 set up for stick shift.

Everytime one of these pops up for sale, a lot of ignorance winds up being posted. These cars are not streetable, they have a part number instead of a VIN, and when you pick up from the factory — you still have to complete the car to race in the Class/Index you want.

Below are a couple of links that might save those who don’t know what the car is a Hell of a lot of embarrassment when they start proclaiming their ignorance in posts.

“Many of you have seen Leah Pritchett’s Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, decked out with Demon themed graphics. However, many people think that particular car was from the latest batch of 2015 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak models. However, the car she runs is actually the very first 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak ever built.

Factory Supercar Champ Leah Pritchett with my dog Buster & I Last year

Nicknamed “El Bandito” the car started life as a 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak equipped with the 6.1-liter HEMI package. In fact, there were three engine choices for the 2009 Drag Pak edition. 6.1-liter or 5.7-liter HEMI or 5.9-liter Magnum® Wedge—as well as manual or automatic transmission choices.”

I bought this car as an investment in 2009, and put into a bubble for 25 years. 10 years later my goals have changed and I’m in the process of selling off my car collection. I offer For Sale Drag Pac 42 for the exact $42,000 that I have in it — and will throw in the bubble. Click the below thumbnails to see the full size version.

1970 Plymouth Superbird V-Code 4-speed For Sale

Rare Combination

  • B5 Blue
  • White Bucket Seat Interior
  • 4-Speed in a Console
  • V-Code 6BBL (6-Pack in Dodge Speak)
  • Tic-Toc-Tach
  • 0 Miles since HemiTyme Restorations performed it’s Rotisserie Restoration
  • A few modifications from stock – all of which are reversible
The car is in the NE Corner under a flannel cover and in a air bubble

Click on a gallery photo below to see full size. Some browsers may require you to right-click and open. From the 10th Row down — you will see a mixture of photos from before (car was solid and the restorer wanted to know why I wanted to restore it) and during the installation.

I bought the car in 2003 and immediately dropped off with Ken Pressley at Hemityme Restorations. Ken (now retired) restored nothing but show winning Winged cars. At the time I also had a Petty Blue Superbird and a Green Daytona in line at Ken’s shop. There were a total 5 Superbirds ahead of this car for restoration, and I knew then it would be close to ten years before I got it back.

Hemityme Restorations in Conway, AR about 2012
The Petty Blue V-Code 4-Speed I sold for $225,000 a few years back

I liked this better than the Petty Blue V-Code 4-speed, so I decided I’d sell the Petty Blue and make this my driver. MAin reason was the rarity of this combination vs. the Petty Blue which was Hemi Orange until 1973 and the block being a factory replacement.

So I took a couple of liberties with this car to make it the fastest factory stock looking (to the average person — not you experts out there) Superbird. The original block was precision machined. The factory heads ported. The factory intake gasket match. The rotating billet stroker to 493CI. TTI Ceramic coated headers route exhaust gasses to 2.5″ factory appearing exhaust. The Radiator is aluminum painted black to fool the average eye. The clutch system is McLeod. All of this can be restored back to stock should you desire.

When the car was finished (better than ten years later), Ken took it for long ride to find and repair anything missed, detailed the car and I picked up to take back home to Texas. When home I drained the gas and put in a bubble — as my life had changed over the previous decade and I was no longer interested in having the car as a driver.

About four months ago I had someone claiming to be interested in buying — so I put in a couple of gallons of gas with stabilizer in the tank, changed the oil, rebuilt the front carb that leaked when I started. The prospective buyer liked the car — but not enough for us to come close to my price. As such I put back in the bubble and take out once a month to start — then back in.

Now I’m at the point in my life (mid-sixties) where I want to make life a little more simpler, and I’m selling most of my 31 car/truck/motorcycle collection. I feel certain that this car is the nicest Superbird available — and that the investment market on this car will skyrocket in the next recession as a hedge against cask and the stock market. Sadly, I’ll need to part company to this car and many others before then.

I’m Asking $220,000

Rare 1967 Marlin For Sale

The 1967 Marlin Was The First, last and Only Full-Size Sporty Car From American Motors

Click here to read the Hemmings Motor News article from 2013 on the 1967 Marlin.

As a kid, I was sort of a fan of the 65-66 Marlin when it first came out. Like the Mustang being built on the compact Falcon, and the Barracuda being built on the compact Valiant, the Marlin was built on the compact Rouge. However, in 1967 that changed when the Marlin moved onto the full-size Ambassidor chassis. When I first saw a picture of the longer and lower Marlin, it instantly became my favorite car. Over the next 40 years, I attended hundreds of car shows and auctions, but never saw a 67 Marlin in the Wild. That’s just how rare and obscure they are.

For more years than I care to remember, I searched for a 67 Marlin in good enough condition to easily restore. About ten years ago I came across this one with a nice body and interior. It was in the collection of an older man with Stage Four cancer. The car hadn’t run in a long time, and had electrical issues. I bought the car with the Intention of restoring red/black with black interior. However, time slipped by and now I’m selling my collection – and this Marlin. All of the electrical was properly addressed, the ignition updated with a Pertronix distributor, the carb rebuilt, and the car has been completely gone through. A ton of work has been done on the car and now It runs and drives great.

Below is a gallery of photos I took last week. Click on the small version to open the full-size version. With some browsers you may have to right-click and select open.

I took a video of me driving the car, but it somehow got corrupted and plays in slow motion. I’ll do another soon, but in the meantime here are a couple short videos.

1958 Dodge Pickup

Sold

I bought this truck about ten years ago, but barely drive it as I’m a full-figured 6’/320# man who barely fits behind the wheel. I have a collection of about 30 vehicles and need to trim it down to about 10. This is one that has to go.

This truck has its original flathead 6 motor and three-on-tree transmission. The paint is bright and the interior clean. The truck is clean and solid underneath. Below is a gallery of photos I recently took. Click and hold, then select open — to see the full size photo.
