Description for Dodge Other 1963

AT THE RISK OF BEING LONG WINDED LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE BACKROUND ON THIS CARAND ME. I OWN A CHASSIS SHOP AND HAVE BEEN BUILDING HOT RODS AND RACE CARS FULL TIME SINCE 1976 WITH MANY MAGAZINE CARS AND BEST ENGINEERED AWARDS. I BOUGHT THIS WAGON ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO OUT OF SAN DEIGO CALIFORNIA TO BUILD AS MY OWN CAR. WHEN I GOTTHE CARIT WAS A RUNNING DRIVING CAR (SORT OF). IT HAD A LATER MODEL 318 AND HAD BEEN CONVERTED TO A COLUMN SHIFT TO MATCH THE 318 TORQUEFLITE TRANSMISSON. FACTORY A/C CAR.IT ALSO HAD BEEN CONVERTED TO POWERFRONT DISC BRAKES AND A NEWER 83/4" REAR END. I WANTED TO CONVERT IT TO A 2 DR AND SECURED THE DOORS AND QUARTER PANEL SECTIONS TO DO THAT. IT GOT PUT ON THE BACK BURNER AND HAS BEEN IN MY HEATED RODENT FREE GARAGE SINCE. AT SOME POINT IN IT'S LIFE IT GOT HIT ON THE BACK EDGEDRIVERS REAR DOOR AND A PISS POOR REPAIR WAS DONE. I HAD MY FRAME SHOP CHECK IT OUT AND THEY DID A MINOR PULL ON IT, ROCKER PANEL WAS NOT BENT AT ALL. BECAUSE OF THE POOR WORKMANSHIP DONE ON THE REPAIR YEARS AGO YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTOS THAT IFIXEDTHAT. THIS REPAIR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RUST AS ALL WAS SOLID.SUPER VERYRUST FREE CAR. ALL ORIGINAL FLOORSTHAT WILL NEED NO REPAIR.YOU CAN SEE IN SOME OF THE PHOTOS WHERE I HAVE SCRAPED SOME UNDERCOATING OFFAND NICE SHINEY PAINT IS UNDER THE UNDERCOAT. FRONT FENDERSARE PERFECT AND HAVE BEEN DIPPED AND PRIMERED, NO RUST EVER. I HAVE SEVERAL FRONT BUMPERS THAT HAVE BEEN STRIPPED AND STRAIGHTENEDAND A REAR THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN RECHROMED. I CURRENTLY HAVE A GEN 3 HEMI JIGGED UP IN THE CAR WITH A TORQUEFLITE TRANSMISSION BUT HAVE NOT MADE THE MOTOR MOUNTS BUT COULD IF YOU WANTED THEM.BECAUSE THIS WAS A COMPLETE CAR WHEN I GOT IT I HAVE ALL THE PARTS AND HAVE SECURED THETRIM OFF A2 DOOR 440 MODEL FOR THE DOORS AND QUARTERS. I HAVE EXTRA GRILLES, QUARTER GLASS, NEWPOWER WINDOW SETUP FOR FRONT DOORS, AFRONTFOLDING BENCH SEAT WITH FOLD DOWN ARM REST AND A SET OF ORIGINAL 63-65 MOPAR BUCKET SEATS AND CONSOLETC ETC.HATE TO LET IT GO BUT OLD AGE AND 2 BAD KNEES AND I'M NOT GETTING IT DONE. EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS.TO HAVE THE 2DOOR CONVERSION DONE WITH THE PARTSWOULD COST MORE THAN THE$5000 I HAVE FOR A STARTING BID WITH NO RESERVE. I HAVE THIS LISTED LOCALLY SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THIS LISTING EARLY IF IT SELLS OFF THAT LISTING, I WILL NOT END IT IF SOMEONE HAS ALREADY BID ON IT.
