Default 1970 Pro Touring DAR/T

I was nudged into creating a build thread.

So the story goes...

Once upon a time I had a 71 Dart that I turbocharged and was going to do body work on it over the winter. After removing a few panels and fenders, the car was diagnosed with cancer and had 6 months to live.
It was sent down the road and I picked up a cancer free 70 Dart from Arizona to start a new build on.

As you will see this build took and entirely different direction then the last build.

Delivery picture from 6/10


5/11
8 3/4 diff, Large Bolt pattern hubs and wheels, Disc front brakes.



And then the tear down started so it could go on the rotisserie.


Found 2 build sheets.

Back seat.


Under the carpet.

Been looking all over for a 46RH. Found a few, all but one were to expensive and trashed. Went and checked out the one today at the bone yard but it turned out to be the non lockup version. I did however score a 42RH.
Its not as stout but it should do the job for a few years.

bye bye 904TF, hellow 4 speed OD!






We are doing this build at my friends shop.

Had the bottom of the car sand blasted for $200. BEST $200 I've ever spent!



Only found one problem spot.

Test fitted some 315 35R17's on the Dart since the mini tub is done.

Decided to step it up finally and pulled out the good camera.
