I picked up this 72 a few months ago.....was only 3 miles from my house.....had been sitting in a carport for 20 years....and was $350!!!!! Going to fix the body rust, build some crazy ground effects and chop the top!
Brought it home and washed off 20 years of dust/dirt.

All glass removed and ready to start the chop. Will be welding cross braces inside to keep minimal flexing. Will start laying out with tape how much to chop and what angle.

All glass out:

Hell yeah! That Dodge is awesome.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Can't wait to see the progress on this one! Perfect blank canvas. One question though... What is the deal with the "Otis" can hanging from the passenger side sunvisor? lol

I disconnected the fuel tank to either clean or replace and have that with a valve/line run to the carb temporarily to run. Going to replace the engine and transmission (it’s a 6 cylinder and it’s tired....it runs but not well)

Awesome, I've done similar cans before and didn't even think about that being what you were using it for. I robbed a plastic gas tank off of a push mower I was scrapping years ago, and that's my go-to hanging gas can now.

If this turns out anything like your other wild dodge, this one is gonna be cool! I’m very interested to see what you do with ground effects.

This is similar to what I want to do (without the windows and wing....but I probably will do some type of wing)
