    Dodge Super Coupe (My Way)

    Couple weeks ago I wandered south to buy a Super Coupe in Ohio. Turned out to be your Typical 42 year old original car except without major Rot problems. I've had plans in my head for 15 years on how I would do My version of a Super Coupe. Stay tuned for progressClick image for larger version.

    The car had some horrible paint fade so I cut and buffed the whole car. It still could use another pass with a finer compoundClick image for larger version.

    Next I started to put my own spin on things. In my opinion they should have kept the 76-77 styling ques for the Super Coupes. So that's what I'm turning mine into. I havent decided on changing the louvers yet but the tailights are next to be changedClick image for larger version.

    That looks AMAZING!
    I think the only way you could improve on that nose would be to add rub strips and nerfs!

    I haven't gotten much accomplished lately besides ordering parts. I was fortunate enough to get a full set of Super Coupe wheels and Caps which I'll have redone to my tastes. I've decided to use this car for trying out SCCA style road racing as I have a track less than 30 minutes from the house. I'm gonna start with the rear suspension and work my way forward.

    Fall weather is here - so how long is your winter To-Do list?

    Going coil over or bag?

    Here is a update after a couple months. I havent gotten much accomplished because of a pretty good head injury that I'm still having health issues with. I decide to pull the drivetrain to freshen it up as I'm doing everything else. Insides were a little worse off than I hoped but that's what you get with a survivor car. The E-58 will go to the machine shop soon enough for a bore and new internals. I did find a set of 308 heads that I had redone for the car. I am gonna chrome the entire engine bay. While the motor is away I'm gonna try and get the 3.91 suregrip 8 3/4 built and trussed. Havent decided on if it will get new springs or not
