I bought this car in mostly original condition w/ 69k miles on it 10+ years ago. It still has the 390ci and Merc-o-Matic tranny, now with 77k miles. It was originally traded in as a 1 owner car at a local Dodge dealership. A friend of mine bought it from the dealership and then sold it to another local who I purchased it from. I named the car "YoungBlood" after the song the "Coasters" sang. I lowered the car 2" in the front and 3' in the back also re-painted with the "lobster claw" flames. I added Lake pipes on the side, a set of 14' smoothy wheels, Cd player, 8" steering wheel, dual exhaust 'no mufflers" staight pipes, neons, '59 cadillac tail lights and a A/C unit. I also removed some of the emblems, and side veiw mirror to give it a sleeker look. The "breezeway" back window is electric and with the inverted roof pillars allows you to roll it down during rain and none gets inside the car. I live in NC and have driven this car to TN, Penn, and SC to different car shows numerous times. The car rides and drives great with Pwr. steering & pwr, brakes and a 3.00 gear ratio will allow me to get on the interstate and run 70-75 mph and still average 16 MPG. The first 3 pics are at the Kustoms of America car show at Mrytle Beach SC. exactly 250 mile from my driveway (driven there). The 3rd is a pic in my front yard when the local Greensboro NC News & Record came out to do a story in the paper on my Hobbies w/ my son.
