Hello from Finland
My ´67 project don´t start from scratch. It´s far by perfec,t but still recently frame-off restaured, descent condition car. I haven´t yet had time to properly look into it, but seems like it has seen quite complete restoration and lots and lots of new stuff.
It´s bit of mix up, and was perfect for what i was looking for, meaning that i don´t want to mess some numbers matching rare survivor. Originality and vin things are not that inportant to me, i respect those ofcourse, but personally apreciate more how things perform.
GTO hood, Chevy powerplant, quite healthy feeling 400SBC, bored to 0.030", with flat-top pistons, cam, intake etc. And freshly built th350 behind that.
I had two ´70 Chargers, and i did quite recently traded other for this. One that gone was SB car and daily driver. Not much is going to done to Pontiac during this building season, cause i try to get other much more tidier Charger ready for next summer, after looong term project (that´s with modern 6.1 Hemi and T56 manual gearbox).
Well, decided that one Charger is enough and i want some GM product also for roaduse (I have LS powered ´70-73 Camaro for racing purposes), i was originally thinking Chevelle, Nova or <-73 F-body, but when this came available, i had to have this.
Plan is is tidy it up bit for next summer, and make few things work. It had rear-end in sky high when it came to me, and 15" wheels to match that setup. I did swap some springs from my warehouse to get rear.end close to desired level, and changed 15" wheels to my Camaros 16/17" spare set, mainly to measure what fits there decently.
Plans for summer are.
-Proper springs, nose can raise a tad, rear is in quite good height but it´s way too soft overall now.
-17" wheels to front, 18" to back, those are already bought, pretty much same style that those TT2 in pic.
-To get heater working, and probably change heater core, there are no hoses at all atm, probably leaking.
-Tricky part for me, emblems. Ones at fenders are missing, and holes are still there, and there were something else missing too, just don´t remember what when writing this. There are gto bagde in boot, and "326" in front of fenders. Wrong in everyway
I don´t quite know what to do with those, and what to get.
Don´t quite know that should i keep it Tempest and way it is now, or finish GTO clone thing with grilles, taillight swap etc...
