Replace gauge lenses on my 67 Charger dash cluster

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Replace gauge lenses on my 67 Charger dash cluster
I purchased the replacement gauge lenses for my 67 Charger. I took a quick look at the underside of the dash for removal points. Any suggestions on how to go about removing the dash cluster or the entire dash to install the new lenses?

I thought I had read that removing the dash can be done but getting it back together may require removing the windshield? Any truth to that requirement?

Thanks in advance.

67 Charger restoration to begin-remove vinyl top adhesive from roof

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 67 Charger restoration to begin-remove vinyl top adhesive from roof
I am starting my restoration on my 67 Charger. The original Owner had the dealer install a vinyl roof onto the car. When I purchased the car, the prior Owner had removed the vinyl top and did not remove the adhesive.

I have tried a few products from East wood with no luck. Has anyone used any product or tool



(adhesive wheel?) to remove 53 year old adhesive?

Or am I just going to have to sand it off?

See attached photos.

I didn't save the page but today I looked at my 67 Charger and found the follwing number: 7282108146 stamped on the top of the core support.

anyone know how to decode and what the purpose is? Thank you in advance.

426 Hemi – on stand- need to transport

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 426 Hemi – on stand- need to transport
Today I purchased a 1967 Charger with its 426 Hemi engine on an engine stand. I plan on transporting the car on a flatbed to my garage about ten miles away.

I was looking at the 426 engine today and don't see any "engine brackets" on the engine. I understand that at the factory these engines were mounted onto the cradle and lifted up into the engine bay.

I was thinking of leaving it on the engine stand and lifting both the engine and stand onto my trailer or pickup bed. Or remove the engine from the stand and just lay it on a few tires in my pick-up truck.

But I still don't like the locations of where I can bolt the chains on the engine safely , while using the cherry picker.

Any ideas from someone that has transported a hemi engine are appreciated.

1967 Dodge Charger transmission tunnel-should I walk away

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1967 Dodge Charger transmission tunnel-should I walk away
I am looking to buy a 1967 Charger that was originally born with a four speed transmission according to the data plate and Maxwedge.com. The trans and shifter are out of the car on the garage floor and the engine is on a stand.

There is a poorly cut-out section of the trans tunnel where the shifter mounts(see attached photos). The Seller , who owned a restoration shop, is suffering from dementia and his daughter is selling all of his cars and misc. items, so he can't tell me why the cut-out is there.

If he bought the car like this then he may have had intentions of welding a new tunnel for the 4 speed floor shifter. I can't imagine anyone butchering a trans tunnel like this. Even if you had an automatic trans and wanted to convert it to a four speed, one wouldn't cut the floor like this. It looks like a hammer and chisel was used!




I see that Classic Industries has a replacement sheet metal(out of stock) for a four speed shifter for this car. How difficult is this to install or should I walk away from the deal?
