It is an honor to have such a rare classic car, such as this 1967 Dodge Charger in our shop. Only about 15,000 Chargers were made in ’67 and not near that amount has survived. We are glad that we have the opportunity to bring this classic back to life. When our client brought us this vehicle it was a shell of a car and about 15 boxes of parts. Initally the client had tried to keep the cost of this restoration down by going with several smaller shops that would work on seperate areas of the vehicle. What this resulted in was a 5 year build, with little progress and lots of lost parts. Over the last 6 months we have tracked down all the missing pieces of this vehicle, repainted it, polished all the trim and restored the interior.
The vehicle is now really coming together and we are down to a few of the final items such as custom floor mats that have the Charger logo embroidered on them. We expect this vehicle to be back on the road within the next month.
Final assembly items are getting installed today by Justin.
