Rare 1979 Dodge Magnum GT For Sale

GT option package that added front fender medallions, silver GT logos, wheel lips, color-keyed fender flares, heavy-duty 15-inch by 7-inch extra-wide GT Rallye wheels, charcoal astratone wheels painted with a bright center dome, lug nuts and deep-dish trim rings, GR60x15 white-letter Goodyear aramid tires and a leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel (a 2-spoke wheel if the tilt option was ordered at no extra cost). The GT’s Firm Feel suspension included heavy-duty torsion bars, heavy-duty anti-sway bars front and rear, heavy-duty shock absorbers with special valving and heavy-duty rear springs. The special Firm-Feel power steering system and special engine-turned instrument Rallye dash panel and crash pad applique included matching console trim with the console. There were only 1674 Magnum GTs produced in 1979

This is a Uber-rare 195 hp/280 lb-ft E58 360 4-bbl Police motor car with a high performance non-lockup 727 Torqueflite transmission and 9.25″ rear axle. This was the most powerful engine you could get in a Dodge car in 1979, and was the engine used in the 79 Little Red Express truck.

I’ve owned this car for over 15 years and taken very good care of it. It has less than 61,000 miles on it. I replaced the 85mph speedometer at 60,400 miles with a NOS Police Certified 140mph speedometer – and put less than 500 miles on the car since. I have the original speedo in a box somewhere in the shed.

I replaced the leaky and restrictive Thermoquad and cast iron intake with a Edelbrock RPM intake and a Edelbrock Performer 650CFM Performer with e/choke and AC idle options. I replaced the troublesome air cleaner mounted ignition with a Mopar Performance electronic ignition conversion kit. The car is both quicker and faster than stock — but I should still have the old parts in a box in my shed.

This car is rust-free, always garaged, and never been farther north than Atlanta, Ga.

In addition to the GT Package – Options Include:

  • E58 360ci – 4-BBL with dual exhaust, 727 Transmission and 9.25″ Rear
  • Leather seats
  • Factory Installed AC
  • Cruise control
  • Power Windows
  • Floor shifter with console
  • Tilt Steering
  • Intermittent Wipers

This is maybe the best equip and nicest 79 (far more rare than the 1978 GT and 20 more hp in the 1978 E58) GT available. The headlight doors are clear, the leather is great, carpet great, and the dash is great and without any cracking. Drives and rides like new, but faster; and brakes quick and straight. The car was just completely gone completely through and anything needing to be addressed was. Fly in and drive back to Alaska with confidence.

I’m asking $15,000 cash (Interbank Wired) for this car. Delivery can be arrange. eMail me at davetheoldhippie@gmail.com if interested. Please no Nigerian Princes or offers to send me a cashier’s check for way too much money and for me to refund the difference. I’m not taking Paypal or Western Union either. Basically — if you’re a scammer — move on as I don’t fall for any of it and will accept a bank wire or dead Presidents only.

I have 31 cars, trucks and motorcycles and I’m wanting to thin the herd by 2/3s so I can move into a smaller shop and make my life a little more simple. Other cars listed on this site ( http://www.daveschultz.com/category/daves-cars-for-sale/ ) include:

32′ Aluminum Stacker Trailer For Sale

Not all Stacker trailers are created equal!

I’m selling a highly optioned 32′ 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.

Admittedly, the floors are a little dirty when I took these photos, once a year I use Aluminum Brite to make them look like new. I’ll post photos after I next clean up.

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.

Shop Update – May 1-15

The first week of May 2019, I raced in Memphis. See the Memphis Recap for that story. After I returned from the Memphis Race — here’s a few of the items accomplished at the shop, in no real order.

First we had a butt-load of rain here. I actually had more flooding coming closer to my home and the shop than the last two hurricanes and the last Tropical Storms.

My pond grew to about three times its real size
got pretty close to the back door of the house
The five acres that the house and shop are on had hundreds of truckloads of dirt brought in before building – so we fared much better than our neighbors
about three days later the water receded and I mowed the very wet yard as the grass had grown knee high and the varmints were taking refuge in it
Speaking of varmints, this fried up little guy climb the power pole and got electrocuted going from wire to wire — cutting off power to the property for a couple of hours – until Centerpoint got here.

Moving to the topic of cars, the following was part of the happenings.

This is how the seats (once light grey) for Screamin’ Woody now look after 12 coats of dye. Still a little splotchy so I ordered another 16oz of dye, which came in Yesterday.

While on the subject of dye, 48oz of Evergreen Dye has been applied to the interior of my 64 Imperial. Still needs more so I ordered another 16oz this morning.

And while on the subject of my 64 Imperial, I took it for a 60-mile shakedown ride yesterday. The goal was to identify what problems I still have to address after all of the work (new brakes, power steering pump, complete exhaust system, major motor tuneup, leaking transmission fixed, odometer fixed, convertible pumps fixed, carb rebuild, new shocks – and a ton I’ve forgotten). The below is the first of five videos I took, which documents the repairs I still need to make.

None of the problems were really major — and two actually corrected themselves. However, about 29 miles into my trip I kept getting smoke looking like it was rolling out from under the dashboard. I stopped the first time and looked under the hood and under the car – but could find nothing. When I started driving again the smoke reappeared only thicker. I stopped again and looked under the dash and found nothing. As I was getting back in the car I noticed smoke coming from the back seat — and that’s when I saw my carpet was on fire. Fortunately I carry a fire extinguisher in most of my old cars — as I was way out in the sticks and had no water. After I got the fire put out — I found that the brand new exhaust was too close to the floorboards and set jute on the back of my 56 year old carpet caught fire. I order a fire mat made for Turbos and catalytic converters, which I’ll use as part of my repair — but I will have to get a new carpet. You can see the other videos of the test drive on my You Tube Channel.

Moving onto Race Cars, The Thugs now has Wheelie Bars as twice I was surprised with Wheel Stands far higher than I was expecting.

Before trimming back some
Finished Product

Yesterday I picked up the block to my wagon, the Screamin’ Woody, from the machine shop. After a thorough washing the crank was sent in, and then the rest of the rotating.

Also on the wagon, the cage was painted hammered gold to blend in a little with the Maple wood on the pillars.

I intend to leave the carpet black — but will make new interior door cards in a red vinyl that will match the seats going in.. The car is on the home stretch to getting finished.

I’ve had a 63 Studebaker GT Hawk for about thirty years now. It’s bounce around a couple of shops to get converted into a Mopar Powered chassis car with a 53 Commander front clip and 60 Plymouth fins — called the Mohawk. It’s come back worse from each of the shops its been to in the last 20 years — so I bought it to my shop to try to tackle the job. The body has been separated from the chassis.

A good bit of work has been accomplished since these photos. The body is wrapped in a tarp at the moment, but the chassis has been reinforced and the welds smoothed. It is about ready for paint – and then will be brought into the shop to get the all of the chassis components right. On the body — it needs to have those nasty home made rear fins cut off and a set of 60 Plymouth fins I have grafted on — and then blasted, repaired and primed.

A lot of wet sanding has occurred on the 60 Plymouth that will be my Petty Clone — but I don’t have any photos of that.

I took my Magnum XE for a shakedown ride, and it’s almost ready. I’ve had this car for a very long time and love it. Ought to be the fastest Magnum out there.

I putting a cactus garden at the entrance way of my race shop and so I picked up a couple yards of a sandy soil mix at the local dirtyard. Photos of the cactus garden to be in the next shop update.

Finally, I’m thinning my cars down from 31 to about ten. I have a lot of real nice ones for sale. The list includes:

  • 67 Marlin
  • 99 Vioer GTS
  • 79 Magnum GT
  • 86 Buick GN
  • 72 Demon Roller Race Car
  • 69 Barracuda Race Car
  • 70 Superbird V-Code
  • 09 Drag Pack 42
  • 78 Dodge Diplomat
  • 64 Dodge A-100 Pick up
  • 58 Dodge Pickup
  • a pair of low mileage 09 Challengers with 6-speeds
  • 61 Plodge Wagon

So that’s my story — and I’m sticking to it!

1979 Dodge Magnum GT For Sale

Maybe the Nicest Original Magnum GT left. Taken out of 20 year storage and completely gone through.

Magnum GTs are Very Rare. I’ve owned 9 Magnums, have run MoparStyle.com for 20 years, and MagnumGT.com for for 21 years, and this is the ONLY GT I’ve ever seen in the flesh. What makes this car even more rare is that if you look at the Vin, the fifth digit is a L. That’s the E58 360ci/4BBL High Performance Cop Motor. That’s the most powerful motor you could get in a Mopar car in 1979. I bought this car because of it’s extreme rarity.

The paint is original, the chrome is original, and the drive_train is original. The original leather seats have been re-dyed in the original color. The car is rust-free, only living in Georgia and Texas. There are no cracks in the dash or console, rare for a late 70s car. The “GT” Wheel Flare are in Excellent original condition.

The Last Of The Mopar B-Bodies

It is loaded with:

  • 360/4BBL High Performance E58
  • 727 Transmission
  • 9.25 Suregrip
  • Leather Seats
  • Tilt Steering
  • Leather Covered Steering Wheel
  • Wipers with Intermittent
  • Cruise Control
  • Air Conditioning
  • Power Windows

The original cast Iron intake and warped Thermoquad was replaced with an Edelbrock Performer Aluminum Intake and Edelbrock 650cfm carb. The problematic air cleaner mounted ignition module was replaced with a Mopar Performance Electronic Ignition box and distributor – so the car has a few more ponies than Mother Mopar had originally given him. Yes, this GT is a gentleman. The XE is a lady.

This Magnum GT Runs, Drives, Steers, Brakes and Rides great. It is a very comfortable car to drive. While I’m not big on driving a 40-year-old car cross country – I’d probably chance it in this car. You should be able to Fly in and drive home – but bring your AAA card just in case. I just sold an 1981 Imperial with almost an Identical background, and the buyer flew in from North Carolina and took a shuttle to my shop. He spent the next couple of weeks visiting old friends in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia. He called a few weeks later telling me what a great time he had and that the car performed flawlessly, except for a flat in Louisiana.

60,000 Original Miles

I was able to buy a Very Rare NOS Police Certified 140MPH (just try to find one under $3000) to replace the 1979 Mandated 85MPH Speedometer.



Weeks have been spent going through this car to get it ready to deliver decades of service to its next owner. I love this car, but the reason I’m selling it is I’m now in my mid-60s and have a collection of 31 cars. I’m starting to downsize my life and most all of the toys have to go. If you like the Magnum GTs, you will never have another chance to own a better one. My first brand new car was a 1978 Magnum XE. They were very controversial back then, because of the Cord Style front end and clear flip-up headlight covers. To me, it was the only real bright spot in the Dark Disco Ages. Well that and I married my wife in 1979.

I want $15,000 for the car, and feel it’s worth more to a GT-Fanatic, and so it should sell quick. If you are interested, email or Text me. I will hold the car off the market for 14 days with a $1000 non- refundable deposit, if you need that time to make financial arrangements. I will store the car inside for up to 45 days with my Classis Car Insurance still in force, if completely paid for.

I will not be selling to a Nigerian Princes, or for a Cashier’s Check for more than the amount and send you the balance. I don’t need any brokers calling me telling me that can sell it on consignment. Cash talks and bullshit walks. I’m old, but not stupid! I will accept either dead Presidents or an Interbank Wire Transfer.

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

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.

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.

Turn-key 1968 Barracuda Tube Chassis Drag Car For Sale

The chassis was built by Jeffers, and the car was setup to run in True Street, where it would go on a 30-mile trip and then the NOS would be turned on for 3 8-second passes without touching engine.

I bought the car over ten years ago for my son to run. He made a couple low 11-second soft hits on motor only, and then we took it back to shop to tear down and restore. Click and hold photos in gallery, and the select Open to see large version.

After putting $75K into the car, plans changed – and the car was put into a bubble for next ten years.

Last month, the car was taken out of the bubble, filled with fluids, cranked up, tuned up, and driven a coupleof miles. I actually video’d the drive, but the video somehow got corrupted and plays in slow motion only. Below are photos I took on my phone last week. They don’t do the car justice!

I’m now in reduction mode, if if doesn’t give me joy, I’m selling it. I’m selling this car for half what it’s worth and 1/3 what it would cost you to build from scratch.

1972 Dodge Demon Drag Car For Sale as Roller

Winning NMC Class at Zmax in 2009

This car has a lot of history. It has been a Texas drag car all of its life. Even still wears the original 1972 Texas Inspection sticker.

The car was completely gone through in 2006. New Chrome Moly cage and floor (inside and under) stripped and repainted with POR 15. New alloy axles, race gears & bearings, Autometer gauges, 4-wheel disc brakes, Caltracs and paint. My son race it until the end of 2009, and then he moved up to the NSS Class, in a 65 Coronet for 2010. The car was cleaned and put into a bubble until last month.

The car has won many National Events in NMC since. The car has been in many magazines.

This Demon is now available for sale as a roller. Put a Mopar small block and transmission in it, and it’s NMC legal. The car is all metal and glass except for the fiberglass hood.

Put a modern Hemi in it, and run in NHRA’s new Sportsman class that runs old school cars with new school drive trains. Or easily bring back to Stock, Pro Street or Pro Touring.

There are only a few things I MIGHT trade for. Click here for the list.

What you see is what you get. It would cost you twice as much to find a Texas Demon near as nice, install the CM cage, alloy axles, 4-wheel disc brakes, gauges, rebuild the front end and 8.75 rear end, get the wheels a tires and then do the paint and body. This car might have less than 500 miles on it -but all at 1/4 mile at a time.

Below are some of the photos rebuilding this car, for your enjoyment.

And a few racing photos.

Shop Business – January 2019

I’ve been incredibly busy, mostly with starting a new business for my son and I, but some stuff has been completed at the shop. Some on the Texas Thug, some on the Screamin’ Woody, and some an some of the other vehicles I have. This will be the extremely condensed version, as even that will be a little long.

Vitamin C Sold

Yup, I sold the Vitamin C. It gave me 10 years of loyal service but it was time for another caretaker. I sold it to a 70-year-old drag racer in Tulsa by the name of Dave Lewis. He’s in the process of stripping it down and will freshen it up in the same Vitamin C theme.

I mentioned that I started a new business with my son. We sell, install and repair Blinds, Shades and Shutters. It is now running and my eldest son is now handling the day to day operations.

The Texas Thug has a new rear ProGlass window installed to replace the one that skated across the finish line at 140 mph in Indy last year.

The underside has been cleaned, the every nut and bolt has had a wrench put on it, and the valves run. Everything was looked over and appears well. The oil still needs to be changed and the car a good polishing. I had wanted to redo the inside of the trunk – but that might have to wait.

Not a whole lot of work has been done on the Screamin’ Woody. The block has been machined, but the crank had a crack – so I’m shopping for a new rotating.

I just bought a 4’X8′ piece of 1/8″ Lexan; stainless steel #10 buttonhead/hex drive machine screws and nuts; and some weatherstripping – so the windows are next on the list.

Years ago, I bought a Tube Chassis Barracuda and restored it. It’s spend about ten years in a bubble – until taken out last week.

Everything was gone through, filled with new fluids, carb rebuilt and a new battery installed. The car was started, tune and I took it for a shakedown drive. It’s now for sale, as I’m going with the Japanese Kondo philosophy of it doesn’t bring Joy – get rid of it,

The Demon that was Dallas’ first race car wasn’t so lucky. It’s ten years in a bubble cause a pin hole in number 6 cylinder. It took me half a day to tear down the motor and get the piston out.

It’s one of those deals where the sum of the parts are worth more than rebuilding the motor for it. I’ve already sold the heads, intake and rocker assembly. The car was been detailed and I’ll be listing for sale.

Next up, my 64 Imperial Convertible.

I’ve had a full size Chrysler convertible since the 70s. First a 67 Newport, then a 64 300, then a 65 300, and then I bought this from the original owner in her 90s about 18 years ago. I stopped driving it about 10 years ago. So in the last couple of months all of the brakes, brake lines and master cylinder was replaced. Gas gauge sender replaced. The carb was rebuilt. The power window switches disassembled and reassembled. The convertible pump system rebuilt. A brand new complete factory exhaust system installed. Brand new tires. Odometer rebuilt. The AC system rebuilt. The paint was power buffed. The leather conditioned. All off the dash chrome meticulously polished. Right now I’m waiting for the power steering pump to return from the rebuilder. Then the only thing left is redying the carpet when it gets a little warmer. I’ve really loved getting reacquainted with this car again. It’s a blast to drive.

In 1964, I remember the Mustang, Barracuda and Marlin fastbacks coming out. I loved all three of them. When the 67 Marlin was released on the fullsize Ambassador, it looked so much better than the smaller 65-66 versions on the compact Rouge chassis. There were very few made and all of my life I’d only seen a picture of one, and never one in the wild. About 20 years ago, I started my quest to find one in good original condition. About ten years ago, I ran into a man with a large car collection who had this car from Florida in it. He was dying of cancer and selling his collection off, and I bought this car. It had electrical issues, so I had in the back of my warehouse and planned to restore it to Red/Black with black Interior some day. That day never came, so the car was pulled out, the electrical completely redone, the ignition replaced with a Pertonix, the carb rebuilt, new battery, and new tires. The car runs like a Champ, but I’ve decided to keep it original and find a new caretaker for it. I’ll not drive it enough with my busy life.

The Leaning Tower of Power and 3-on-tree that was in my 60 Plymouth Post car was pulled in favor of a bad ass 383 that was recently rebuilt for it. When I drove this car home from Arkansas, I had it over 100 with that engine and skinny ass 25-year-old tires. I’m looking to put a 4/5/6-speed that has overdrive. That car is a keeper.

I’ve done a lot work on that car, which is a topic for another day. The point for this post was that I Cleaned the engine up and hit it with some Slant 6 blue. I’ll wrap and store it for a future project.

Finally, two of my Magnums had a lot of work done on them. I’ll be keeping the big block XE that is now exactly how I’ve wanted it for years. I just bought some new wheels for it. I’ll take it next week to get tires swapped over. I love the look of the Keystone Klassics on the car, but the Uni-lug design keeps having the nuts loosen up.

The rare 79 GT with E58 Cop motor has been completely gone through, detailed and I’ll be selling.

The shop has actually been busier than that, but I hit the important stuff and that catches me up.
