The place where you put the clock would be better suited for an RPM gauge. Chrysler put that clock at a dangerous place, you look down at the clock and don't pay attention at your driving for one or two seconds and anything could happen. But that is the way things were back then. But I am sure it will be nice.

Don't worry JG, there a tachometer going at the clock place. I've haven't received yet. They, also, are going to rebuilt the speedo and put a 240kms faceplate.

After spending money on 2 projects, he's probably telling the truth.

Got to love the pistol grip shifter. Chrysler nailed that one on the head.

In 1976 that coolant reservoir was less than 1/2 that size. Weird the difference from year to year and the new ones hold about 3 cups.

Too bad about those gauges. You are going to flip your car on its roof so you can put them in... Laughing Laughing
