We’ve had Matthew’s 1968 Dodge Charger for a little over three months now and things are really coming together. Since our last update, the Charger has made it back to Morrie’s Minnetonka Ford for assembly. Upon arrival the first order business was to remove all the suspension components for refinishing. After stripping and a fresh coat of paint the suspension was put back in the car, complemented by new shocks and other goodies. The brakes were also tackled and rebuilt to as new condition, although it is hard to notice them hidden behind the shiny new American Racing Torque thrust wheels. Under the hood the refreshed engine and transmission has been put back in the car and the generous folks at A&T Upholstery have started tackling the interior.
The car has really started to take shape and with spring around the corner the timing couldn’t be better. We still have a lot of work ahead, but with a little luck, and a lot of elbow grease, the car should be ready before June rolls around.
