    So a chance conversation at Irwindale drags and the Plymouth was off to a new home. I kept the 440 so now it has a built 413 and fenderwell headers. Found this pic on the HAMB the other day.

    Thought I'd update this. Tidied up the interior and got it drivable earlier this year - here's some pics.

    Got a bit more done tonight - fuel line secured, battery cable run through some metal tubing to stop it getting burnt on the headers etc. Nothing photo worthy but it's a couple of steps closer to driving.

    Got a few more loose ends tied up - trans cooler plumbed in, shifter adjusted, diff oil checked, trunk latch fixed and so on. Also got tired of looking at the ugly-ass patchwork of bondo and primer on the front fenders, so one can of primer later they're still ugly but at least they're mostly one color..

    Got the back tires on, looks like the fenders will need radiusing some more. The rear firewall is about half done now too thanks to my buddy Pauly.

    New tires on, driveshaft fitted and temporary gas pedal rigged up and it drives! Not very far as it happens but probably the first time it's turned a wheel under power in about 30 years..

    Got the front brake lines clamped down, filled the cooling system and put the passenger side inner and outer fenders back on. My buddy Pauly came round and made a start on the rear firewall - it's an awkward shape so it's going to be a hassle...

    Got a bit more done tonight - front clip off and front brake lines hooked up. Just need to be clamped down now. Ran out of daylight so no pics today.
