Are you looking for a rare project car that has had a majority of the hard work completed? Check out this 1970 Lime Green Road Runner that is extremely solid and has already had tens of thousands of dollars invested. This is a factory 383cid with manual 4-speed that came in the ever popular lime green color. The bucket seats have been freshly recovered with Legendary seat covers and the console has also been restored to new condition.
The car came with the Rally gauge package including a tic-toc-tach as well as power disk brakes and 3:23 rear-end with posi. The numbers matching motor and transmission were rebuilt, though the rebuild happened about 20 years ago and we would recommend a tear down to check everything before putting it back in the car. It has been stored and everything turns freely, but since its already out, it would be advisable to just double check. The car also includes a new power booster and master cylinder for the all new disk brake setup.
The front end has also been completely rebuilt and powder coated to the proper and correct color and a new clutch was a part of the work already completed. The front grill is original and complete and what we would call “mint!”. The car has very nice original front fenders, hood and doors. The quarter panels are also original, though they had been repaired back in the 1970s. We do have new AMD quarters and trunk pan available if desired. All of the glass is new ECS date coded glass and will finish off the car nicely. This is an original California car and has never been rusty and is ready for the next owner to complete and love.
While Mopar is in our name, it is not the only thing we work on. We love all exciting cars, no matter the make or model. This latest restoration project is a very rare and unique car that we absolutely love.
This is a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. It is one of only 2048 GT500s produced in 1967. It has a factory numbers matching 4 speed transmission and a matching 428 Police Interceptor motor. The car is fully documented with a 7 page build sheet from Shelby even has Shelby’s signature on it. This has been a California car for 99.9% of its life and there is no rust anywhere. It has a very solid body with with the original red primer and paint on the floors.
The car still has the original fiberglass hood, nose and trunk lid with all the associated scoops. The car was ordered with lime gold paint and black interior and as was indicated, it came with the very desirable 4-speed manual transmission. The car is being restored back to OEM concourse condition by us here at S&S. We will be using all original restored or NOS parts during this restoration. The car is just too unique and valuable not to.
This is an amazing car to restore and we are glad to be a part of it. It is a factory 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440-6 pack with 4 speed manual and Dana 4:10 rear end. This car was a race car from the first day out of Chicago area. After its racing days in the 1970s were done, it was left for dead and when it was finally found it was highly cut up and rusted bad.

This is a factory original 1970 Dodge Challenger RT 440 Magnum car…but what makes it really unique is the color combination!
The car is a factory FM3 Panther Pink car with Hot Magenta stripe and blacked out hood. Yes, it was originally ordered that way and we have the original build sheet! There were only 2 Pink/Pink 440 4-barrel cars produced from Chrysler. So it is a one of two built car. It has been off the road since the late 70’s and has only accumulated 44k original miles. Unfortunately it was side swiped on the passenger side (fixed now) and then left for dead in the original owners yard. The motor and trans were pulled and the car was sold to the 2nd owner in Michigan. Restoration was started in the 80’s, but only a small amount was completed. Mostly it sat around in the garage with other pink cars.
Mopar Collectors guide did an article on this car back in the 90’s, but still, nothing more was done. We purchased the car in the early 2000’s and began finding parts and working on the restoration. Because we took our time, the car has tons of original parts. The interior is mostly original including seat covers, door panels and the dash pad. The carpet and headliner are new.
The motor has the correct dates F440-HP along with the transmission. Most of the parts we used are OEM or NOS. The rear wing was added by the 2nd owner and we left it in place. The car is on the last leg of restoration and is getting close to being finished and it will be for sale when completed.
Contact us if you are interested in the completed car. One of the rarest challengers on the planet, and documented.
22 Oct 2019 – Update! Its a big day for the pink Challenger. We install the motor and front end all as one unit, just like at the factory.
Feb 2020 – After final buffing, this car is done and is amazing! If you would like to come see it, it will be at Muscle Cars at the Strip 2020. March of this year. Certainly a car you will probably never see another one like.
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 miles. The car was 95% original before we started the complete restoration.
Unfortunately the car was stored outside and the weather took its tole on the original paint and interior so we had a lot to do. It was so original and clean we chose to do a complete rotisserie restoration and use as many OEM parts as we could. Many NOS parts have also been installed to this black beauty.
The story from the family goes like this: Bob, the original owner, watched the movie “bullitt” in the spring of 1968 and loved the Charger in the movie so much that he just had to have one. He had a family friend that owned a Dodge dealership in Chicago and he contacted him and ordered this Charger almost exactly like the one in the movie. A month later the car arrived and he flew out to Chicago and drove it home to California.
The car was ordered with some great options to make it a comfortable driving car. Options include:
- Air conditioning
- Power steering
- Power disk brakes
- 440 Magnum
- Bucket seats with console
- Possi (Sure Grip) Rearend
- and many others.
Of course the color of Black with black interior was chosen to match the car in the movie and it looks as sinister as ever. The car was never driven in bad weather and was not driven on a daily basis. Therefore the sheet metal is in remarkable condition. The front fenders were replaced because of the fender bender but OEM originals were used. Therefore the car retains all OEM Chrysler sheet metal, even the trunk pan. The core support still retains the correct SO number and matches the original fender tag. The car does have a very nice build sheet for documentation and an inspection card found under the seat from the factory. The motor and trans are correct with numbers matching. They have never been out of the car or rebuilt before the car came to us. The alternator, starter, carburetor and components are still original for the car and have been restored. All the side glass is original to the car and in great shape. There are a few minor scratches but we wanted to use the original glass. The front and rear glass were replaced with ECS aftermarket due to the originals being a little too pitted and scratched. The bumpers and pot metal pieces have all been rechromed and are not after market. The stainless steel pieces have been highly polished. Interior has been redone using Legendary interior components. The dash pad is still the original. Gauges were totally rebuilt by Redline gauges. Gauge faces were done by Gcar.
The car is in the middle of a full restoration and will be for sale when it is completed. This is an amazing car with all the right components for a blue chip car. Call for pricing. Expected to be complete in the summer of 2019
Update 4 April 2019 – The dash and gauges are all completed and now installed in the car. Interior is mostly complete and we now have the rear-end complete as well. Windshield is in, front end completed, and trim and wheels going on.
11 June 2019 – The car is starting to get close to completion, just finishing up the last remaining details.
This Charger is absolutely stunning, as you can see in the pictures below. It turned out amazing and it is now going to be loved by one lucky owner. Car is on the road and alive again.
Here is an original 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T that is an original California car as well. This car was owned and built by Ken Funk for his daughter. Most all of the restoration work was done around 10 years ago. It is a numbers matching motor and transmission and includes the original build sheet. Many of the bolt-on motor parts are all part number and date coded correct for the car. The body has just over 100k miles and is very solid. It retains all of its original sheet metal including the trunk pan. The only addition has been the shaker hood. Besides the shaker hood, the car was built back to build sheet specs with the original color and options.
The motor, however, is not the stock 8:1 compression motor that would have come in 1971. It has been freshened up very nicely and hit the dyno at a respectable 360hp. Coupled with the 727 automatic and 3:55 possi gears in the rear, it is a very strong street running car that has no problem smoking the tires. It is an excellent running and driving car that does have power steering and power disk brakes for good stopping as well.
The interior is a mix of both original and new. The seat covers are new from Legendary. The door panels and dash are still the original ones that came with the car. The dash has a couple very minor cracks but it was too nice to change it out. The gauges all work and have been freshened up by Redline gauges. The engine compartment is very original and correct as well with the correct radiator, alternator, starter, and bolt on items. The Shaker hood was added and is one of the first generation AMD. The shaker bubble and parts are the very first gen Gregory bubbles and base with NOS grills. It is hard to beat the look of a shaker on an E body.
The trunk is finished off with an OEM polyglass tire for the spare along with a complete jack system. Its wheels are still OEM correct to the car and the underside is still original and has not been painted or detailed, just cleaned very nice and left factory stock to show its authenticity. A correct exhaust system from accurate exhaust was installed including mufflers and resonators along with tips.
This is a very correct and clean driving car. Very reliable and turns heads where ever it goes.
