1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S

1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S

This restoration project has a personal story to it from S&S. The family member that manages and takes care of all of the technology side of S&S (that’s me) has always loved all three generations of the Barracuda, but the second gen cars (1967-69) were always my favorite. When this basket case 1968 Formula S car came up for cheap (well, the end price is never cheap) at a swap meet, we jumped on it. That was a decade ago!…

1968 Dodge Charger R/T – $POR

1968 Dodge Charger R/T – $POR

Here is another very rare and unique factory 1968 charger R/T that we are restoring right now and offering for sale. The car was purchased from an estate sale in 2011 in Reseda CA where the car had been sitting since 1990. Amazingly the car is registered in the original owners name with the original title on hand. The front end of the car was bumped into and then sat from that point on and has less than 100k original…

1970 Dodge Coronet Convertible

1970 Dodge Coronet Convertible

S&S purchased this 1970 Dodge Coronet convertible from southern California several years ago after it had been sitting in a barn for many years. Registration showed the last time it was registered was in 1982. The car was a very good solid convertible and we got it back on the road as a daily driver with some interior work and just a light tune up. We even installed a new top. This cool car started life as a 318 and…

1962 Corvette – Restomod

1962 Corvette – Restomod

Restomods have become popular over the past decade and we will do them for customers as well. We had instructions from the owner to make the engine compartment “eye popping” and the paint to look phenomenal. We did just that! We converted the drivetrain over to custom running gear and 4 wheel disk brakes while also installing a Keesler 5-speed and updated the car with A/C. It might not be what we prefer, but it was fun.

1970 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible

1970 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible

This was another major restoration project for us. A 1970 Coronet R/T convertible 440-4 barrel with a pistol grip 4-speed tranny. What made this car even more rare was that it is a real air grabber with a 4:10 dana rear end. Only sixteen(16) 440-4 convertibles with a 4-speed were made and only 2 came with an air grabber and only 3 came with a 4:10 dana and no other one was known to have been made in this color….

This is an original 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 with 426 Hemi. It is a column shift automatic that was a former weekend drag strip car. As such, there were only 11k original miles on the car. Luckily the car had not been tubbed or cut and there was very little rust. The car had been sitting for many years and was not running when we got it. The car has the original fender tag as well as certicard, and it…

1968 Dodge Coronet R/T 440

1968 Dodge Coronet R/T 440

This is a 68 Coronet R/T with 440 Magnum and automatic transmission. The current owner has owned it since 1978. It was blown up in that same year and had not run much since then. It was taken apart years before we got it for a paint job and resto but got stuck in the middle. The paint was applied over 5 years before it came to us and had to take it from there and make it look as…

1963 Plymouth Max Wedge Convertible

1963 Plymouth Max Wedge Convertible

Yes, this is an original and documented 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury max wedge convertible stick shift car. We purchased this car but then decided to do a restoration to fix some of the flaws, and later sold it. It has a correct and newly built 426 Max Wedge motor that was dyno’d at 550 hp and the correct 3 speed tranny. They never put 4-speeds in them because they could handle the horsepower in 1963. This was one of the…
